Chat Guidelines


Please read the following guidelines very carefully. By proceeding to chat you agree to these guidelines and must obey them at all times. Refusal to obey these guidelines will result in the appropriate responsive actions.

Rules and Etiquette

To make Badman's Chat a comfortable place, we have some etiquette and rules we ask everyone to follow. Please abide by them when you're visiting this area. In addition, please take this opportunity to reacquaint yourself with the guidelines you agreed to in the membership agreement. We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor all chat rooms. Failure to comply with the etiquette and rules or membership agreement may lead to removal of your messages or termination of your membership.
As you introduce yourself and join in the chat, remember that at any given time users from all over the world are logged on. It's a good idea to avoid conversation that might offend someone. The idea is to enjoy, share and learn from others who share the same desire to excel in our hobby.
Most chats are monitored and actively participated in by the forum staff who ensure that no one is abusive to other chatters. They have the prerogative of disconnecting and banning unruly users. If you encounter someone who is disruptive, you should inform the staff member on hand or use the ignore feature. A couple of rules of thumb can prove useful when interacting with others in a chat room.
  • Flooding, or filling the chat window with lots of messages, prevents other chatters from being able to participate in the conversation.
  • The same is true for executing emotions. Although generating all of that pink text is lots of fun, you can have too much of a good thing. Go easy on the emotions to allow other users to interact in the room.
  • BY THE SAME TOKEN, AVOID USING ALL CAPS. It is the virtual equivalent of shouting and should be done sparingly.

The following actions will result in an immediate ban from chat and may also result in a ban from the forum as well.
  • Impersonating a Badman's staff member, administrator, or another user.
  • Accessing or trying to "hack" the code of the chat program.
  • Ignoring or disrespecting the request of any staff member.
  • Threatening behavior to any member.
  • Trying to circumvent the chat's profanity filter.
  • Anything deemed disruptive to the enjoyment of the chat session.

These are all common sense rules and should not be a problem with anyone who truly wants to enjoy the chat. If you agree to abide by these rules please continue into the chat room by clicking the button below.
