Chatbox Rules

Post  GodSpeed on August 16th 2010, 12:11 pm

-General Chatbox Rules-

  • Be Respectful- No compromises. No exceptions. It's the number one rule at TBC. Obviously people will not always see eye to eye. Being kind and courteous to your fellow user is the most important thing in any social situation. Be respectful, courteous and levelheaded. Don’t say something just for the sake of being rude. If someone bothers you, don't fly off the handle: let them know calmly that you're being bothered. "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

  • Enter at your own risk.- No one is forcing anyone to use the Chatbox. Should you encounter a spoiler it is your own fault, please do not complain about it. Avoid spoiling major plot details and check to see who is "spoiler free" before posting. Be courteous, basically. Also please remember that this is a private chat box for our members and we all have vastly different views, there may be things that you do not agree with.

  • No Bashing.- This goes along with “Be Respectful”. This means:
    1. No bashing people. (This includes any single person and or group/race of people)
    2. If there's something in particular you dislike, that is a controversial topic, about a character/plotline, make your comment and move along.

  • No Flaming/Flame Baiting- Flaming is attacking someone. Very simple, if you're respectful and don't get into fights, you won't need to worry about it. Flame Baiting is making statements that try to get them to respond back at you with derogatory statements. It's punished just as severely as flaming itself.

  • No Fighting- Don’t fight with other members, and definitely don’t start fights with the staff. Seriously, it’s not worth it and no one will end up happy, least of all you. Any problems you have can be solved with calm and polite conversation. If you have a question or wish to bring up a topic with the staff that you don’t wish other posters to see, then use PM's. That’s what they are there for.

- Chatbox Command List -

The chatbox is fairly simple. Here are all the basic commands that you can perform in it.

  • Buttons at the bottom - These will affect your text's appearance and color, and let you use emoticons.

  • HTML Functions - Most forum-based HTML functions work on the chatbox.

  • /abs - Typing this will send a message noting that you're absent. You can add a reason that will be displayed in the message and visible by all members connected to the Chatbox (ex: /abs reason).

  • /me - Used in the beginning of a sentence, this command will be replaced by your username (ex: /me eats a delicious pizza" will display "Nickname eats a delicious pizza"). This is a command obviously good for action posts.

addendum - If anyone has any questions, additions, problems or thoughts about the rules please let me know either through:
