 IRC Channel Rules
Today, rules have been outlined for our chat room/live chat section of the site. Please read them fully before participating in the chat. channel rules and regulations, in addition to all the / rules


Understand that the chat room is *not* a room for support. The chat room is an extension to
the community and social end of, and is not to be used for support queries.

Channel Operators/Admins

These users will be moderating the chat room in accordance with the chat room rules.
Please respect them. If you put them on ignore, or don't reply in a timely fashion
to their queries, then that is your problem and you may face consequences because of it.

Operators, admins, etc are designated by their icons in the chatroom.

Ground rules:

You will be issued 1 verbal warning to stop or never do said action again if you are found to be in violation of the rules.
Continue, and your punishment may result in a kick.

If you persist, a ban for any determined amount of time will be issued.

1. Do not spam. Pasting the same message over and over, flooding, etc. It's against network terms as well. Stupid messages can also count as spam, for example "Hi how are you", spammer: "lolol2ol423o43l2oo3o423l43l43ol SPAM", other guy: "I'm fine thanks", spammer: "ROFL N00BS u suk."

2. Don't advertise.

3. While mildy mature discussions are allowed in the chatroom, we ask that you don't post pornography, or anything obscene.

4. Swearing is allowed in the chat room, but don't overdo it.

5. Our policy on bots is that you cannot have them in the room unless you ask an op for permission. That includes auto responders or other bot-like features that you've added to your own client.

6. Nick changes are fine unless +N is on, but if you're constantly changing your nick, that could be considered spam. Don't use offensive nicknames as well.

7. Don't troll or flame. If you have personal issues with someone else, KEEP IT OUT OF THE ROOM.

8. Racist, and other discriminatory comments/content will not be tolerated. Period.

9. Don't ask for support on services. Support questions should be posted in the proper section on - the chat is not the place for them.

10. Don't ban evade if you have been. You're only risking yourself being glined from the entire server.

11. Report chat issues in private via /query to one of the OPs or email if you think there is improper conduct in the chat room. Logs of the conversation _must_ be provided. Don't report issues in the chat room itself, it will only start a flamewar.

End of rules. 03/04/08
