xat FreeWebs is a chat to chill and make new friends, 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 enjoy the chat and not be offended.
ALL RULES APPLY TO YOUR MESSAGES, NAME, STATUS, HOMEPAGE, AVATAR, ETC.
1. All languages are permitted.
Freewebs is now an international chat.
2. Be respectful.
Don't say anything that may offend someone, including "flaming" a person, group, race, chat etc.
3. Be appropriate.
No sexual pictures, names, etc. No bad smiley combinations. No flirting. No swearing. No talk about drugs.
4. 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). Having advertisements in your status is allowed as long as they abide by the other rules.
Asking for member/mod/owner is strictly forbidden.
7. No begging.
Begging for xats, days, or powers will not be tolerated. You can either purchase your xats or enter contests hosted on forums.
8. Don't spam.
Smiley spam is over six smilies in a message, or over six in name. Seven 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).
9. Give staff respect.
If you're saying one of the mods is bad, or publicly ranting about something bad the mods did, that is a bannable offense.
Selling in your status/homepage is allowed (xats/days/powers/graphics only), but advertising it in main chat isn't. You may trade in PC 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.
11. No drama/disruption/trolling.
Any form of disruption, drama or trolling will not be tolerated.
12. Do not use a blank name.
Users must be using a name at all times, this can cause confusion and disruption.
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.
14. Don't tell moderators how to do their job.
If they're a moderator and not you, don't tell them what to do.
15. Complaints about chat or website
Constant complaining about the website or chat in main chat leads to disruption and this isn't permitted, You will be warned but continuous of breaking this rule will result in a mute.
