xat Chat is a place for users to meet people from around the world. In this chat, you must abide by these rules (the general idea of the rule is put in bold).
This makes it a safe and clean environment for all users to chat and not be offended.
ALL RULES APPLY TO YOUR MESSAGES, NAME, STATUS, HOMEPAGE, AVATAR, ETC.
All languages are allowed! - This is an international chat.
Be respectful - Don't say anything that may offend someone, including "flaming" a person, group, race, religion, chat etc. Give staff respect. If you have anything negative to say, or publicly ranting about something bad the mod did, that is a bannable offense. If you have a genuine report for the main owner, you may submit one here (ALL messages are read).
Be appropriate - No sexual pictures, names, etc. No bad smiley combinations. No flirting. No swearing. No talk about drugs. No hack talk.
Don't advertise - Whether it be a site or chat that belongs to you, a friend, or anything else not "mainstream." Linking to YouTube or an image is fine (as long as the video/image is appropriate).
Don't request a higher rank - Asking for member/mod/owner is strictly forbidden. You must earn your position!
No personal information - Do not disclose or request personal information of yours or any other person.
No begging - Begging for xats, days, or powers will not be tolerated. You can either purchase your xats or enter contests hosted on forums.
Don't spam - Smiley spam is over three smilies in a message, or over six in name. Four messages in a row, or saying one sentence in several messages is considered flooding. You may add extra characters to a word as long as it doesn't take up space (abusing this is a bannable offense). Watch caps, 5 words with caps are allowed in each message as long as it is not done constantly. Owners are an exception to this rule.
Don't lie - If there's evidence you're faking reports on anybody on Chat, you'll be punished.
Selling/trading - Selling in your status/homepage is allowed (xats/days/powers only), but advertising it in main chat isn't. You may trade in Private Chat only however it is preferred you go to xat trade. Selling IDs in names, statuses or avatars is not allowed. You may sell IDs on your xatspace, however you cannot use any signs to draw attention to your xatspace. (e.g in your name, status or avatar) If you have xat IDs in your name/status, it will automatically assumed that you are selling them, unless it's the ID you're currently using. Selling content from other websites is strictly prohibited.
No drama/disruption - Any form of disruption or drama will not be tolerated. Don't troll. This chat is to meet people and enjoy a fun time together. So please behave. This rule is left up to mods/owners discretion.
Do not use a blank name - Users must be using a name at all times, this can cause confusion and also disruption.
Obey the xat Terms of Service - Failure to do so will result in a ban. The major ones here are exposing personal information, abusing/teaching glitches, or phishing/scamming. Also do not discuss, link to, or otherwise mention private servers.
