Netquiette.. or How Chatters Should Behave! :)
Please make sure you've read the Friendship Chat Conduct Guidelines.
capital letters = the use of capital letters is considered as shouting.
You dont shout at strangers, so dont shout at us.
privating = Privating people without their consent is rude. You
wouldn't whisper in a stranger's ear on the street. Don't whisper in
ours unless you are invited to do so.
name changing = It is never any fun for the rest of the room when ppl
constantly change their name specifically to confuse others, annoy
others, be rude or just generally cause problems. It is confusing and
creates more trouble than is neccessary for a friendly chat. So please
choose a name and stick to it!
swearing = This is a room for all ages to come chat and feel welcome.
We would appreciate any language to be kept to a minimum and not used
towards another chatter or the room itself.
joining with an offensive nick = please dont join with nicknames that
offend other users. This is a friendship chat for people of all ages.
spamming = Do not paste websites of other places in the room. This is
considered spamming. It is unsolicited advertising.
email addresses = It is best not to post your email address into the
room. You never know who is out there watching and might copy it down
for the purpose of sending you a nasty surprise. Keep it to private
with people you know.
cybering = This is a friendship room. We welcome people of all ages.
We would appreciate it, if this is what you are looking for that you
moved onto a more adult sort of room.
discriminating against others = This will not be tolerated. We are a
friendship room and open our doors to people of all races, sexes,
ages, religious practices, or sexual preferences. We do not tolerate
discrimination against anyone for the above reasons.
Flooding/ being annoying = Please do not type gibberish into the room.
If you wish people to talk to you, you need to make conversation, not
just type a bunch of letters line after line.
Please refrain from flooding the room with lots of lines. It makes the
room scroll faster and makes it harder for people who are chatting and
having a good time.
subjects =Please refrain from discussing religous subjects or politics.
These topics do cause arguments and we prefer to keep those out of our
friendly chat room.
Please keep Adult jokes to a minimum and preferably not to rude. We
are visited by people of all ages, including children who would not
appreciate your sense of humour in these matters.
repeating yourself = please refrain from continually asking people asl,
or other such questions. It is everyones basic right to either refuse
to answer or infact ignore this question. If they dont wish to give it
out, please dont press them. Find something else to talk about.
Administrators = Are here to help you. They are here to ensure that
the chat is kept friendly and happy for everyone. They are not here to
ensure you are personally kept entertained or to argue over decisions
made with you. If you have a problem with one of the admins, please
