Rules for mChat and EBoD

Image

Here's where you can find out more about the three places TNOers like to chat - our own on-site mChat and the Neopets based EBoD

For more info and official rules which relate to the different chats, please read the posts below.

The following TNO Rules apply to all chats, and can result in you being warned/demoted/banned if broken:[/b]


  • Treat the other chatters with respect.
  • If something you're going to say has the potential to offend or insult ANY member of our community, choose not to say it. In the same way, no-one will offend and insult you.
  • No harassing or abusing other members of TNO.
  • You may disagree with another member's opinion in a reasonable manner, but please do not insult or attack them.
  • Do not begin arguments, or contribute/encourage them.
  • No continuing to harass or argue with someone by PM, IM or neomail, if you've been asked to stop it elsewhere. Unless you've both agreed that you want to debate something together, this is harassment.
  • No blatant or personal insults/attacks/threats, foul language, or any derogatory terms anywhere. This includes swear words, prejudicial/racial terms, sexual innuendos, religion-bashing, and rude comments like "retard".
  • No adult, sexual comments or topics. Ever.
  • No scamming or selling pets.
  • No begging.
  • Do not share your personal details, such as home address or phone number.
  • Gauge the appropriateness of subjects to the age of the youngest member of the chat.

The range of members in the chats or neoboards is as broad as on the forums. The Golden Rule to chat-by is if a five-year-old child or eighty-year-old grandmother shouldn't read it, it's probably not a good topic to be discussing.

Please remember that breaking these rules can result in exactly the same range of punishments as can breaking the forum rules. If you are asked to stop doing something in mChat or on the EBoD - by any member - please listen.

There is no hierarchy in any chat - whether you've been chatting there only a week or for many years you're to be treated as an equal. Make new members welcome and always take each chatter into consideration.




If you are the maker of a new EBoD, please use this as the title & first post of the new neoboard:

Neoboard Title Example: -Smiley- TONS of TNO Fosters UFA! -Smiley- (+Chat!) #XXX

First post of new EBoD neoboard wrote:Welcome to The Neopian Orphanage's Eternal Board of d00m!

TNO is a guild of foster parents working hard to find loving forever homes for abandoned Neopets!

Please feel free to ask questions about our fosters or just stay and chat!

Looking to adopt? Check out this petpage full of private adoption agencies!

This EBoD was brought to you by -insertsomethingrandomheresoitdoesn'tmessupyourfont-


Post here if you are updating with a new board so that it is always easily linked to and just a click away! Also, don't forget to post in our neoguild with the new board link so folks can see it there as well. ^_^

Feel free to add something after the link, otherwise your neoboard font will mess up. :tdw:

mChat Guide and Rules

Postby TNO Admin on Thu Oct 22, 2009 8:20 pm

mChat Guide and Rules

mChat, or Mini-Chat is the chat feature based right here on billopan.com. Every forum member has access to it, unless specifically taken away by Council.

The TNO Rules listed above apply to mChat, in addition to the guidelines listed below.




mChat can be found at the bottom of the forum index or at this full page link. It refreshes every 10seconds to look for new messages from other members, and there is no limit on the number of messages you can send. The rules are linked from the bottom, as are the names of the Council Members you should contact for any technical help.



On the bottom bar there are also links to smileys (used the same way as those for forum posts), BBCode (again, the same as forum posting), to send/clear messages and to turn off sound. When the sounds are turned on "click"ing indicates a new message and the "croak" is you being disconnected, usually due to your own internet disconnecting. All the usual BBCodes work, with the exception of [img] which has been disabled so large pictures don't overrun the chat. If you want to show a picture, post it as a URL and people can click on it to see the picture.

You can permanently change some of the mChat settings, such as the sounds, display on the main forum page, showing who's online and showing avatars in the User Control Panel here.

Hidden users have the same status on mChat that they do on the rest of the forums - they show up for Promo/Birthdays/Spam Buster and Council but do not show to normal users as being in chat.

If there are any issues that infringe on the rules in the previous post, please get in touch with a Spam Buster or Council Member. SBs and Council have full access to an archive of messages on mChat, so can trace back and find any conversation. It helps us if you note down the time/date of the incident.

Lastly, Council and Spam Busters won't be around all the time, so we'll be relying on each member to help moderate the chat and stop anything getting out of hand. Enjoy mChat, but use it responsibly and remember that golden rule - would you show it to your baby cousin or your granny?

EBoD Guide and Rules

The Eternal Board of d00m (or EBoD!) is our Neoboards based chat, and the latest link can be found on this thread. It's a really useful chat tool, but even more importantly gives us a presence on the Neoboards to advertise our foster pets for adoption. Whether you have pets UFA or not, be sure to support it by keeping it bumped and help TNO's mission further!

Firstly, when chatting on the EBoD, please, please obey all Neopets Chat Rules! We really don't want anyone getting warned, suspended or perma-silenced! As a quick reminder here they are:


  • No posting any offensive or sexual messages of any kind.
  • No talk of dating of any kind - be it for you or your Neopets.
  • Impersonating Neostaff
  • Asking for anyone's password in any capacity
  • Offering graphics for Neopoints/Money
  • Linking to a site off of Neopets (This does include our site! Please, please don't try to send visitors anywhere except our main guild page/petpage. We can only hope they get here from there and wouldn't want anyone getting warned/frozen!)
  • No Religion/Politics - do not discuss religious or political views anywhere on Neopets.
  • No Spam/Chain Letters
  • No Cursing

To start chatting on the EBoD, you need only open the link from the last post in this thread, and go! If the board reaches 25 pages it will soon "explode" (i.e. get too long and be closed) so a new board can be made using the information in the first post. Always remember to post the link both here, and in the NeoGuild. A Council Member or Promo Staffer will come along soon and tidy up old Neoguild links.

When on the EBoD, remember you're not just there to chat. The EBoD is often the first people see of TNO, and can act as our face to the rest of Neopia. It's really important you treat every visitor like you would a fellow TNOer. Welcome them, answer questions and try your best to remain patient - no matter how silly, repetitive or annoying they may seem. All of us were younger and newbies at one point and look how you turned out! Encourage and take genuine interest them as they could one day join TNO and become a really good friend to you and many others.
