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
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)
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
