GROUP CHAT-ROOM RULES
Info for moderators, but useful to all chatters!
No trading of any adult personal profile information, including, but not limited to, My Space ID’s, Yahoo ID’s, MSN ID’s, AIM ID’s, ICQ numbers, telephone numbers and email addresses and physical addresses.
No typing in all capitol letters - it is ok to capitalize words though for proper grammer.
If a chatter is misbehaving, most of the time they can be straightened out by simply muting them and telling them what they did wrong and explaining the proper protocol for the chat room. Or, you may want to give the chatter a verbal warning after muting before taking any disciplinary action. Should this fail to work you have several disciplinary options at your disposal. In any event the chatter should know why they are being disciplined.
Do not correct OPS in open chat please make sure that you PRIVATE them.
No one under the age of 18 on cam at any time. This includes pictures.
No drug references in any chat. (This has been modified - it's now ok to mention weed but it's up to the individual house owner to allow this)
Make sure that chatters aren't making demanding remarks to the house owners. For Example repetitive requests to do something. Let me stress repetitive means more than once requesting the same thing. I don't think it is necessary to remind chatters that the house owners don't take requests if they only ask once they only need to be reminded if they ask more than once.
It is ok if chatters compliment the house owners and they don't need to be told if they make a compliment that all the house owners are the sexiest.
Discipline of a Chatter – Click on the chatter’s name in the Chatter’s List
You now have three choices:
Mute – The chatter can still see what is happening but is silenced until he logs out and then logs back in.
Kick – The chatter is removed from the chat room. He can reenter the chat room and proceed normally.
Ban – The chatter is removed from the chat and is permanently banned from re-entering the chat until the ban is lifted by Administrationor the chat server is re-booted.
