Full Version: Basic ground rules for Chase Chat
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.
No personal attacks or accusations – robust discussion of ideas/solves, etc is OK, but no name calling, slurs about someone's character, intelligence, ethnicity, sexuality, etc.

No F-bombs, and be circumspect when using other words. If you have to, follow the comic book rule and replace letters w/ symbols. This applies to quotes of others' posts, as well.

No posts that otherwise cross the lines of common decency, in the judgment of moderators.

If you claim to have found the chest, be prepared to offer proof.

Take your personal arguments to the Therapy Room. Don't expect the moderator to referee unless it approaches continuous harassment.

One person making repetitive posts or creating many topics repeating the same basic opinion can interfere with others' use of Chase Chat. If this becomes disruptive, it is a violation of the ground rules.

Breaking the ground rules can result in admonishment or temporary or permanent banning, depending on severity as judged by moderators/Admin, . In some cases, you may get the chance to retract or remove an offending post. Apologies can go a long way.

If you report a post that you think violates the ground rules, be prepared to tell how it did so, and provide a link to the thread and post. Do not request someone be banned; that's the moderator's decision.
