Unlike ICE chat, this chat does have operators who will, when present, keep things orderly. Go ahead and chat freely, but just remember that manners count. These are some important things you should know:
Never scroll. Scrolling
is when a person types line after line of garbage, or makes extremely long
lines of text which wrap around and take up several lines. Either way,
the text scrolls up, making it hard for people to read. For such an offense,
an op may kick or gag without warning. (There are more borderline cases,
with long lines that don't wrap around, but are still much longer than
they need to be. Lines like "Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" are like that,
and can be considered scrolling also.)
Please watch the language. Most people are good about this, but it's important. Pretty much anything PG-rated is fine, but true vulgarity is another matter.
Don't shout constantly. Shouting is when a user types in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. IT'S VERY ANNOYING. PEOPLE GET SICK OF IT FAST. It's okay to emphasize a single word now and then that way, but just don't shout all the time.
No stat questions, please. This means things like "How old are you?", "What gender?", "Where do you live?", etc. To a certain extent a question put to someone you know, or done via private message, is all right, but don't ask general "Age/gender everyone?" questions.
Don't poll. Polling is a question like "If you like dogs press 1"--anything that asks a question of everyone in the room and demands a specific response. Polling is annoying beyond belief. One of the reasons stat questions are so despised is that they are a form of polling.
No Role Playing Games, or acting out characters or Norns, etc. (a hint to avoid this: don't use the .me <action> command too much!)
