    P&PG Chat Rules

    Please be aware of the following expectations of conduct when using the Pen & Paper Games Chat area:

    Please watch your language. We are a diverse group of individuals here, and it is expected that any language used on the open chat area will be in good taste and appropriate for use in mixed company. Mature topics and expletive laden chatter should be taken to a private chat room or to private messages.

    Respect fellow members. *Avoid personal attacks and flames. Debate opinions, not the people behind them. * Inflammatory language or images is not acceptable. * If you can't find a polite way of expressing your opinion, take a break, maybe sleep on it, and come back to it when you can express yourself calmly.

    Do not post links to pornographic or other inappropriate sites or upload images that are of questionable or sexual content. *If you find yourself questioning whether something is appropriate to be posted, it is better to err on the side of caution and not post it.

    "Spamming" is not allowed in any fashion. Filling the screen with long repeated characters, or sending the same message over and over again qualifies as spam.

    Do not post or link to material that infringes upon copyright. Using this site for anything illegal, including the infringement of copyright or linking to any sites where copyrighted material can be illicitly obtained will not be tolerated. Breaking this rule may result in suspension or banning of your account.

    Harassment of any kind is not permissible in the forums, private messages, or anywhere in chat. This also includes talking about sexual oriented topics that make others uncomfortable. If there is any question in your mind if a topic is appropriate or if it might make others uncomfortable, then it is best that you avoid it. If you are the subject of harassment, please report it to me as soon as it occurs.

    I personally feel that our Administrator should not have had to post a separate set of rules for the Chat, since it is part of the site and fall under the rules of the site.

    Thumbs up

    Agreed. Yet, i realize that professionalism and thoroughness was our Demi-God's motivation.

    I'm a member of a handful of sites, one particularly, that is out of control, so believe me when i say that i for one appreciate that Farcaster keeps his finger on the pulse of this site. Truth be known, the results of his keen eye is why i frequent here every day... great people, wonderful behavior, & mucho respect given to all. Even parents need not worry that their teenagers frequent this site.

    Thank you, Farcaster, keep up the great work for your diligence is appreciated.

    I just wanted to appologize for my part in that. There wasn't any disrespect or such intended in what happened, just a funny discussion regarding the application of a character concept and using mechanics to make it happen in an effective manner.

    (Yeah, we were all grossed out by that link though, big mistake to the one who put it up lol) Anyways, sorry guys, I'll be more careful from here on out, hopefully others will do the same.

    But yeah, instruction noted

    Thanks for saying so, Lucian. I think everyone just needs to realize that they are in a public area and take that kind of stuff to private chat.

    Taken literally that would forbid linking period. Everything is copyrighted. Example my writing is copyrighted by me and I distribute it. That is distributing copyrighted material. Material I have every right to distribute.

    I understand what you mean. However that isn't what you said.

    Point taken. I have updated the wording:


    Do not post or link to material that infringes upon copyright. Using this site for anything illegal, including the infringement of copyright or linking to any sites where copyrighted material can be illicitly obtained will not be tolerated. Breaking this rule may result in suspension or banning of your account.

    now what if it is a game being played and we have an evil character, should our evil character be respectful? I mean if we're going to roleplay we have to play the role dont we? maybe with my way of roleplaying i should stick to good characters that arent too religious.........

    If you are playing in a game, that means that you would be in a separate room made specifically for that DM/GMs game and not in the General Chatter section. In the type of game you are speaking of, it would be best if the DM/GM made the room private so that not just anyone could go into it. It is up to the individual DM/GM to police their individual room.

    New members cannot log in to chat for a period of a few days. This is a security precaution.
