The chat room is for socializing. You can join it by clicking here. (Or if you have chathacks, click the "Join the Chat" button on the side of most pages.)
When you use the chat, you agree not to
- Discriminate or be racist to another user
- Harass/bully any other members of the wiki
- Ship war or break other rules found in the policies (if this page doesn't somehow say otherwise, the rule on the policies applies, otherwise the one on here does)
- Post links with explicit content
- Impersonate any other person
- Ask for personal information (address, password, etc.) for a person and do not stop after a clear no.
- Curse when someone asks you to stop (please do it in PM with users who are comfortable with the language or when "certain people" aren't on. See below).
Moderators may enforce their own policies. These include:
- Common sense. If there is something from which you know it may will make someone upset, annoyed or angry do not post it, and if you do, ask if it would be fine and do not do it if you get a no. This also includes users who come online and "troll".
- Spamming the chat with emoticons which may cause it to crash/lag.
- If you curse, and someone asks you not to, STOP. If you don't, you will get kicked or banned.
- Do not spank Yoshi's butt.
Bans can be made by chat mods or administrators in case rules are broken.
- After the first rule break, the user must be let off with a warning.
- After the second rule break, the user must be kicked, but not banned from chat.
- After the third rule break, the person must be banned for a period of 1-3 days, depending on how bad the rule break was. If it was a really harsh rule break, or the person has been already kickbanned for a longer period before, a longer ban can be given.
- If someone breaks the rules often, an admin can be asked to ban the person from the whole wiki for a period of time.
A banned person may ask an administrator to be unbanned if they believe the ban was not justified. You must state the name of the moderator banning you and what exactly happened.
