Please do not use avatars or post a pic that includes children under 18 years of age. If you are asked to remove your avatar for this reason and do not comply, this could escalate into a serious issue. This is for your protection as well as ours. If you do not log out and change your pic, you will be kicked. If you return and do not change your pic immediately, you will be banned.
No spamming or flooding of the chat room. You will be muted and asked to stop, if you continue to spam or flood you will be kicked out of chat. When you are allowed back into chat and you spam again, you will be banned.
Do not advertise any other website, including social media, in our chat rooms. Your post will be deleted and you will be kicked from the chat. There are times this may occur accidentally and the post will be deleted and you will be warned in your private message. If you break the rule after this, you will be banned.
Do not post any links in our chat rooms. The link will be deleted and you will be kicked or banned depending on the content of the link. If there is something special you wish someone to see, please ask permission from a super admin.
Do not post your email address or phone number in public chat. Your post will be deleted and you will be kicked out of chat.
Do not engage with trolls as they will keep coming back. If no mod is present, please put them on ignore and flag them.
Always use English in our chat rooms. Our staff needs to know what is being said at all times. The post will be deleted and you will be warned. If it persists, you will be kicked from chat.
Do not type in all caps. We know this can happen accidentally so you will have the opportunity to check if your cap lock is on. Letting others know this was accidental will also allow the mod or admin to take this into consideration.
Please do not have ongoing religious or political discussions in public chat. We have a Christian room for religious chat and you may take political discussions into the Pub. Private chat is also recommended.
Do not disclose any personal information about any other chatter without their permission.
Do not clone anyone. If this occurs, you will be banned from our site.
Excessive bad language will not be tolerated. The post will be deleted and you will be asked to refrain from such language. If it continues, you will be kicked from the chat. When you are allowed back in and your language continues then you will be banned.
Never use any form of pornography. This can be in the form of gifs, pictures, cartoons or anything depicting a pornographic nature. You will be kicked pending investigation by Superadmins. They will decide whether or not to let you back into chat.
Do not use photos from the internet or from another chatter and pretend it is you. The context in which the image is being used will determine how serious an infraction it will be. If you wish to use a movie star or something on those lines, please ask a superadmin for permission. If you are given permission to use another picture, you must always divulge the truth to another chatter if asked if it is really you. If you say a picture is you and we find out it is not, you can possibly be banned.
Do not harass anyone into being in private chat with you, no one is obliged to reply to a private message.
Do not use an inappropriate chat name. If you come in with a name that is not suitable for our chat, you will be asked in private messages to pick another user name and the Superadmin will be able to change it for you. Our staff will make the determination of whether or not a user name is acceptable. If you come into our chat with an obscene name, you will be immediately banned.
Any racial, homophobic, sexist, or bigoted comments will result in a ban. Any form of bullying is an instant ban and depending on the context, further action could be taken.
There will be no rudeness or bad behaviours in our chat. If a mod, admin or Superadmin asks you to refrain and you continue, you will be kicked and or banned as we seem appropriate.
Always follow instructions given to you by Moderators and Admins. If you ignore instructions you will be kicked for an undetermined amount of time. Fighting with staff or being disrespectful will get you banned.
ANY INFRINGEMENT OF THE FOLLOWING RULES COULD HAVE VERY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES.
if someone reveals to you they are under 18 years of age, you MUST tell a staff member immediately. If we find out that you have knowingly been chatting with a minor then you will be banned. Your interactions with them will be examined and if we find any reason to get the authorities involved, we will pass that evidence we have along to the authorities as you will be prosecuted.
If you post any illegal images of minors (under 18 years of age) you will be reported to the relevant authorities. We will pass on your IP and all supporting evidence that we can to help authorities prosecute this. It is a very serious matter and we do not take this lightly.
Do NOT engage in underage roleplay, it is ILLEGAL even in private. As with the above rule, we will do our best to have you prosecuted.
If there is a News post from staff that you are not in agreement with, do not post it in public. You will private message the staff member and discuss it. If you bring it public and cause drama, your post will be deleted and you will be muted.
If there is anything in our rules that you want to be clarified, or you have a rule that you think should be included, feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or use our “Contact US” page.
