    General Chat Rules (GCR)




    First of all, use English only on the chat.

    • Don’t use ‘the freedom of speech’ as an excuse to:
      *
      bully (obviously calling someone by names which are offending; obviously darting all your dislike for no apparent reason at someone)
      *
      be rude ( yell; usage of sarcasm/irony; hinting meanings and words with ill intention)
      *
      offend (obviously/hinting any words/meanings/names with ill intention at someone)
      *
      ruin the atmosphere (talk about dark/painful things from personal life; not stopping when asked to stop in a polite manner; asking uncomfortable/unsuited things)


    • Don’t share too personal things in public:
      * things that are rated 18+
      * things that have a tragic/ angst/ dramatic topic
      * no religious talk
      * things that can make users either uncomfortable or troubled to stay on chat


    • Don’t advertise any site or service on the chat; below are listed exceptions:
      EXCEPTIONS FROM THE RULE ABOVE (ONLY THE LISTED BELOW ARE GREEN-LIT TO BE SHARED):
      * directly linked image hosted on image-sharing site, such as (tinypic; photobucket and so on) as long as the image

      * ONLY twitter/tumblr/facebook accounts that are official accounts to any famous celebrity (manga-ka, bands, singers, actors and so on)


    • Don’t use ‘roleplay-mode’ as an excuse to:
      *
      bully (obviously calling someone by names which are offending; obviously darting all your dislike for no apparent reason at someone)
      *
      be rude ( yell; usage of sarcasm/irony; hinting meanings and words with ill intention)
      *
      offend (obviously/hinting any words/meanings/names with ill intention at someone)
      *
      ruin the atmosphere (talk about dark/painful things from personal life; not stopping when asked to stop in a polite manner; asking uncomfortable/unsuited things)
      *
      also, no 18+ roleplaying on the general chat and try to turn not the chat into roleplay area.


    • In case any of the rules are broken - report to staff member, but DON'T use the chat rules as an excuse to:
      *
      steal YO Staff' functions and start warning users around
      *
      scold in a rude way users
      *
      bash users or try to chase them off the chat



    MESSAGE FROM THE STAFF:
    Hello there!
    These rules are nothing new, however seems it was just a question of time we post them officially. We don’t wish to be misunderstood because at first glance rules seem strict. But as it is said, the general chat room is general for a reason. First, many users gather there, to relax and enjoy their free time together. Second, it is general for general things going on, not details of our lives or our past. We all have past and past things and topics of our personal life are shared in between friends – IN PRIVATE, not made into a topic for the public. These things can bring you down at some moment - sure, we all are humans, after all. As said, we all have past and really harsh moments in our lives. This is why the public chat is to brighten your mood, to cheer you up and start enjoying the rest of the day/night. It is not a place where you bring the spirit down; it is a place where your spirit is supposed to be lifted. On the whole, we don’t ask for much, we only ask you to enjoy your time on YO’s general chat when there, together with the users. As they enjoy their time with you there. Thank you for the understanding and reading our message to an end. (:


    Best regards,
    YaoiOtaku Staff
