Message for Users
- If you do not want to follow the rules because you don’t like them, then kindly leave.
- See the How to Report page to report other users or unfair banning.
- If you have any additional problems, whether it be with another user or with our system, contact us instead of starting drama. We are open to suggestions in making our chat a better place
- You are responsible for your own safety! If you trade accounts or give away your personal info, for example, you are doing so at your own risk. We try to keep the chat safe from people who intend to harm others, but we are not responsible if you decide to jeopardize your own safety.
Message for Mods
- Kick twice before a ban (two chances)
- ALWAYS put a reason when banning/kicking, to avoid false reports of “banning/kicking for no reason”
- Talk to rule-breakers in PC to reason things with them before banning if possible (skip this if they meet the requirements in the red sticky note below)
- Do not include other users in an argument with a rule-breaker, or they will side against them and cause more drama. Notify users in the Main Chat that you will solve the problem in PC.
- Never ban without proof (e.g. screenshot)
You will be banned forever with NO warnings if:
(1) Your profile picture and/or username contains R-rated, sexual, inappropriate content
(2) You come on the chat only to use language or send pictures containing R-rated, sexual, inappropriate things, whether it be in PC or main
(3) You do anything that clearly shows you do not belong on our chat
If you are reported (screenshotted) to have done either of these things when a moderator was not online, then you will be banned forever the next time we see you
Banning times are in red below but remember that 2 kicks are always given before a ban is used.
➜ Includes cussing and using language that contains R-rated, sexual, inappropriate content (6 hours)
➜ Does not include using insults such as “stupid,” “idiot,” “loser,” “shut up,” “stfu” (see the Disrespectful Behavior section)
➜ Does not include using mild cuss words such as “crap,” and acronyms such as “wtf” and “lmfao” (but, if abused, 6 hours)
Mods are encouraged to speak to the person in PC to reason things out before it gets out of hand
➜ Includes repeatedly bullying another user in an extremely hateful/hurtful way (24 hours)
➜ Includes taking advantage of the wording of the rules and finding a loophole around them in order to irritate the mods (refer to the appropriate section based on the rule they are taking advantage of and ban accordingly)
➜ Does not include expressing mild discontent toward a mod/user, everyone is free to have their own opinion
➜ Includes repeating the same letters/words/emoticons for more than 5 consecutive lines to fill up the chat with nonsense (1 hour)
➜ Does not include letter spamming in only one line

Pestering to be Moderator/Owner
➜ Includes continually begging/pestering/threatening for a rank (1 hour)
➜ Does not include asking to be or asking how to be moderator/owner (direct them to the How to Become Mod page)
Assume that mods will ALWAYS have silver icons, and owners will ALWAYS have orange icons.
➜ Includes posing as a mod/owner by saying they “are on a different computer” or “have forgotten their password” (1 hour)
➜ Does not include posing as another guest/member, it’s just very obnoxious and pointless
