- Chat is a fun area where users can interact, share, and basically just chat. See Help:Chat for more information.
- Cussing is allowed in chat only, but if abused or done excessively, will result in a ban.
- If you are not comfortable with the current subject on chat, do not complain or you will be blocked. Please either choose to ignore it or leave chat all together.
- In addition, be aware that any user can screenshot your actions.
- Users can discuss/say whatever they want, as long as it is not an argument or wiki threats.
- Speak in a language that users can understand.
- It is recommended to speak in English.
- When a chat moderator, administrator, or the majority who are present asks you to stop doing something in chat, stop doing it.
- Level of punishment will depend on the severity of the act, and the judgment of the chat moderator or administrator who addresses it.
- Private messages are not monitored.
- If a user is being abusive, click their avatar and select "Block Private Messages".
- Do not bring private message issues to the main chat.
- When users are away, don't force them to say something in chat.
- They may be busy or doing something else.
- Spamming chat gradually or suddenly because of boredom is disallowed and may result in being kicked or banned if necessary.
- People from other wikis/etc. can also now visit chat (or "invade"), as long as they do not cause any trouble.
Please do not
- Role play
- Discuss role play that takes place in private messaging
- Discuss or post anything overtly sexual or pornographic
- Flame, harass, troll, or fight users
- Spam (e.g., flooding the chat with nonsense)
- Note that embedding images repeatedly after being warned to stop may result in a kick/ban
- Post ASCII Codes (Text intended to represent an image)
- Abuse private messaging (e.g., making multiple private messaging for no reason)
- Advertise unless authorized by the Administration team present in chat (e.g., other wikis)
- Backseat moderate
- This means that you, as a user, should not act like you have a duty to enforce the rules.
- Any user may inform the guilty of the rules.
- If it fails, keep quiet, and report it to any of the chat moderators or administrators through private messaging or their message walls.
- It should also be noted, that you mustn't tell a chat moderator/administrator what to do, as it is a serious offense, and borders on mini-modding.
- Link results from search engines
- It creates a long link and unnecessary stretch, causing the sidebar to appear
- Post links to illegal downloads or streams of copyrighted material (e.g. full episodes of The Amazing World of Gumball)
- This is not allowed in main chat or private messaging. Although, it is very slim for a user to get caught doing this in private messages. Be aware that any user may printscreen anything which takes place in private messaging as well.
- Incite drama (e.g., grief slinging, inferiority complex)
- A moderator reserves the right to warn or kick/ban a user if he/she feels they are attention-hogging.
- Given context, general attention-seeking behaviors tend to include: The excessive use of caps, punctuation, chat features, and stubbornly trying to force either a different topic or force the current topic in a specific direction.
- Disrespect anyone, especially to the chat moderators and administrators
- Ask for any personal information (e.g., people's real names, where people live, their ages)
- Note that you are allowed to give out your own personal information entirely at your discretion
- Use capital letters excessively
- Spread false information about other users
- Post phishing, malicious, or keylogging links
- Post spoilers without warning.
