Basic Guidelines

We ask that users observe a few basic guidelines to keep the channel civil.

  • Don't harass or attack other users; this includes racist/sexist behavior, excessive cursing, etc.
  • Don't paste large amounts of text into the channel. Link to a website with the text instead if you want to paste more than a few lines.
  • Don't advertise.
  • Don't ask for help in downloading pirated software, pornography, etc.
  • If you want to run a bot or script in the channel, ask a channel operator for permission first.
  • Respect channel ops, who may set other rules as they see fit.

Our rules are more or less a matter of common sense. In general, if you're doing something wrong, you'll get a warning from a channel operator. Continued misbehavior can result in being kicked or temporarily banned from the channel. If you're unsure about anything, ask a channel op.
