This is where we communicate with all of you. If you have anything you would like to talk to us about you can discuss it here on our public chat and we would love to hear your feedback.
However, before you come to the chat just like any other place we have rules. Our rules are made so everyone can have a wonderful time on our chat and just hangout and talk about whatever you like.
Below are our rules to the chat box
These Rules are for All Members and Staff
-Rules are Relaxed Between the Hours of 9:00 pm PST-4:00 am PST-
1. Be respectful and do not harass or discriminate
We do not permit harassment, discriminatory remarks, or derogatory slang terms. Do not say anything that may offend someone, including, but not limited to, flaming a person, group, or chat. Very specifically, we do not allow homophobia, for example. For non-severe offenses, such as saying “you suck” or “shut up,” a warning will be given, whereas saying highly offensive words or committing more severe offenses would get you immediately banned.
2. Do not transmit inappropriate content
Transmitting material of an inappropriate nature is not allowed. This includes sexualized images, smiley combinations, or stick figures. Unprofessional behavior like swearing or flirting is not allowed. Censoring a swear word by typing the swear word with a few omitted characters or asterisks is not allowed. Discussion of drugs is not allowed. This may involve moderator discretion.
3. Do not advertise non-creative content or websites
Generally, posting images, videos, or other creative content is allowed, as long as the content comes from mainstream websites like YouTube or Imgur. Linking to things from the xat forum or any xat fan site is also acceptable. Other advertising is not allowed, except for in a user’s homepage. Drawing signs to a homepage is not allowed unless the content in the homepage is also content that can be posted in the main chat.
4. Do not impersonate other users
Do not impersonate other users. Posing as another user to get them kicked or banned is also not permitted. Impersonation is not necessarily using the same name and avatar as another user. An example of impersonation is when a user says they are a different user and tries to act like them, which can include using that other person’s name and avatar.
5. Do not request a higher rank
Asking to become a member or above is not allowed. Positions here are for staff only. If you would like to join please click here.
6. English is the only language allowed
In most cases, the only language that is acceptable here is English. If a user uses a non-English language, they will first be warned to use English only.
7. Do not beg or ask for free products
Begging for xats, days, or powers will not be tolerated.
8. Spamming is not allowed
Smiley spam is over four smilies in a message, or over six in a name. However, each user is allowed to use as many num or count smilies in their name as they want, but only for letters and counting. If others report lag, the user may be asked to change their name. Sending several consecutive messages with little content is considered flooding and is not permitted. Adding extra characters to a word is fine, to a reasonable extent. A moderator will warn you if they deem your messages to resemble messages of spam. Constantly clicking someone, resulting in tickle spam, is not permitted. Constantly erasing doodles is also not allowed.
9. False help and fake reports may result in a ban
Providing false help to a user seeking assistance is not permitted. If it appears that a user is providing false help with ill-intent or in an obviously jokingly way, that user may be banned immediately. Simple mistakes, mostly due to outdated information, may result in a warning or correction. Additionally, if a user reports another user with non-genuine proof, the reporting user may be banned forever.
10. Selling or trading is generally not allowed, with a few exceptions
Users may request to purchase subscriber days, but only if the user is out of subscriber days. All other trading should occur at the Trade chat. Buying or selling xats, days, powers, identification numbers, or graphics is allowed only in status messages. Drawing signs to a status with the intent of bringing attention to the sale item(s) typically prohibited on the main chat is also not allowed, unless noted otherwise. Buying or selling any other product or service is prohibited.
11. Do not disrupt the operations of the chat
Behaving in a manner that disrupts the operations of the chat may result in a ban. Having debates about topics, even politics, is acceptable as long as the discussions are civil. In accordance with the first rule, such topics may be halted if it is deemed that such topics are interfering too much with the chat. A disagreement in opinion, or even constructive criticism, should not be considered disruption, but sending hateful or abusive comments will not be tolerated.
12. Do not troll, post inflammatory remarks, or facilitate drama
Since this is a chat founded on professionalism there is little room for trolling or posting inflammatory remarks. If this type of behavior becomes excessive or drawn out, or if the user has an obvious intent to annoy others or disrupt the chat, or if the user is being overly-obnoxious, they may be asked to stop. Posting things for obvious shock-value (something that may be seen as highly disgusting or angering) is considered overly-obnoxious and will not be allowed and can be considered trolling. Facilitating drama is also not allowed. This should primarily discourage negative discussion about occurrences or operations at other groups, unless a user is requesting assistance for dealing with such situations. Finally, do not repeatedly ask the same question after the question has been answered.
13. All visitors must use a name of reasonable length or size
Visitors are required to use a name of reasonable length or size. Using a visible smiley as a name is acceptable. Moderators have the ability to use their own discretion when determining if a name is appropriate. Generally, using even a letter is fine.
14. Do not discuss hacking or related activities
The discussion of hacking is strictly prohibited.
15. Moderators and owners have the final say in classifying offensive material
Due to the nature of the English language, it is not possible to list every offensive term or phrase. For minor instances of inappropriate behavior, the user will be told to stop or will be kicked, based on the judgement of the moderators or owners who are witnessing the behavior. If you disagree with the way a moderator or owner deals with a situation, wait until a person of higher rank is available to resolve your complaint or request.
