Kicks and Bans

What is a kick? In short, it is a quick way to remove the user from chat without baninng them, if you are kicked it means you have done something wrong and you need to stop.

What about a ban? A ban is a way to remove you from chat for a set amount of time, when you are banned there is always a reason and it means you have been warned and kicked several times and yourefused to hange your behavior.

Chat Rules

General Chat Rules:

  1. If several users and/or chatmod/administrators tell you to stop doing something because it is disruptive, you need to quit doing it.
  2. You and you alone are responsible for what is said in your name, and you alone will face the consequences for it.
  3. Do not post any pornography. It will be an instant ban or block.
  4. If you wish to post something on chat that is NSFW (Not Safe For Work) Meaning that it would not be okay to view that content at a public library, school, or place of work; then you need to inform users that the content in NSFW by stating it when the link is posted.
  5. Do not ask if people will be banned either in chat or from the site, or declare that people will be banned either from chat or from the site if you are NOT an admin and/or chatmod. Also, do not speculate on bans and do not demand bans.
  6. No whining, it's really annoying.
  7. Please do not post screamers or shock gifs.
  8. Language: Now guys, do we speak English? I'd imagine so, or you'd have a tough time reading this. Let's try to make it easier on our fellow members and type with recognizable words please. No "n den i wen 2 da stre" Most people know how to type English, if they know how to speak it. We are not asking you type with the most prim and proper grammar imaginable, we simply ask you do not type in broken English.

Spamming Rules:

  1. No roleplaying as other users without their permission.
  2. If you are going to post long links, we recommend using a link shortener e.g. Tiny.cc.
  3. Do not for any reason spam/test emoticons in main chat. If you feel the need to test them, please do it in a private message, with another user that has agreed to let you do so. 
  4. Do not spam/or flood the chat, it will NOT be tolerated!
  5. Do not stretch the chat window by spamming characters (i.e. using 40-50 "!").
  6. No "Zalgo" text. No one can read it and if you're posting it, it's probably not worth reading. It's also old and tired. Give it a rest.

Drama Rules:

  1. Do not insult users based off of their interests as this starts drama.
  2. Do not post links to other wikis or chats, unless an admin or chat mod says it's okay. Advertising other wikis is a good way for bad things to start happening. It's a very simple rule to follow it so there's no excuse for breaking it. Failing to comply with this rule will result in a 3 day ban.
  3. Harassing other users is not acceptable and you will be kicked/banned from chat for doing so.
  4. No "tricking" people into getting banned either. That will get you banned, too.

Penalties

  1. First violation: Verbal warning from an admin.
  2. Second violation: Temporary kick from chat.
  3. Third violation: Ban from chat for 2 hours.

If you keep violating the rules, your ban will stack up, depending on the rule broken.

No-Warning Bans or Kicks

The following actions will get you kicked or banned from chat without any warning other than the one the admin places on the reason for banning you.

  1. Posting something on chat that you know is against the rules, especially if you declare you know better. Kick from chat.
  2. Referring to something as "gay" in reference to being lame. Calling anyone or anything a "fag" or "gay" or any similar words. This is no longer going to result in a warning. This is a ban. We as a whole are fed up with the behavior of using those terms in a derogatory manner. It's not just discriminatory; it's ignorant. 1 day ban from chat.
  3. Do not attempt to dance around the rules by even trying to talk about the above. Do not try to "you know what I mean" things, either. Kick from chat.
  4. ASCII art spamming. This refers to posting images in ASCII format. Varies.
  5. Racism, in any form. Varies.
  6. Posting screamers. 1 day ban from chat.

Admin/Chatmod Notice

  • Remember, all penalties are subject to the admin's/chatmod's discretion. If you ban someone, please edit the ban message to be as specific as possible.
  • If you wish to appeal a ban, leave a message on the talkpage of the person that banned you or an admin in chat.

Profanity

Profanity is allowed. There are no rules against it. However, do not use it to harass users, or you will be banned.
