Official Chat Help and Guidelines

Well folks, we have a Chatroom now! A place to talk about whatever you desire! And yes, not just things like MMRPG! Literally anything that's on your thought process, disregarding taboo topics, can be talked about! Literature, games, life, other projects, humor, sports, anything!

As you might have noticed, a shiny and spiffy new chat has shown up, and boy does it have some things that you’re going to need to get used to. Granted, good changes, but still changes to get used to. Thankfully for you, reader, BossMan is going to take you through a trip of chat-goodness! So, sit back, relax, and find out the wonders of this new Chat, with your host.

============================================================================================================

Your Local Staff
These guys uphold the Chat around here, and they’ll enforce the law of the law. Don’t worry though, they’re all nice guys, you just gotta be a nice guy yourself to see the nice side of these guys! Here's a list of all of our recorded Chat staff at the moment.

============================================================================================================

The Rules!
*Breaking these rules could lead to a kick/ban, so don’t break 'em!*

#1: Please keep the proper Chatting spirit when in Chat, please!
-At this point, it’s normal chat etiquette. Keep your common manners, don’t go around insulting other users….Just don’t do things that a complete moron would go around doing. This Chat aims to be friendly and suitable, and while I get that's not always the case please don't go around being overly crass. It's not really that funny, anyway.

============================================================================================================

#2: Flooding constantly ends up being obnoxious, real fast, real quick.
-If you think the right thing to do is post random gibberish constantly and call it chatting, I would say you don’t know the definition of chatting. Please, post something in an actual language so you're able to have an actual conversation. I don’t understand if you’re trying to break some sort of world record, but don’t do it in MMRPG Chat. No seriously, it's genuinely obnoxious and doesn't make you look cool or anything. This also directly ties into the idea of spamming, so don't utilize your canned meats here. Or repeat the same phrase or constantly use emojis, images, links or whatever. We don't need every talk to be thought-provoking but it shouldn't be downright dribble either.

============================================================================================================

#3: Political, Drug, Sexual, Religious, Discriminatory or essentially just controversial discussions aren’t allowed in Chat
-Look, things like this really cause and spread fire incredibly quickly. Different types of people have different types of opinions, so please ensure you understand that. Regardless, these discussions just really lead to some tension and unwanted topics in the Chat, so we'll have to prohibit discussions like this in the Chat. I’m sorry if you feel differently, but these conversations are, and will never be relevant in the first place. Seriously, I promise you won't ever have a proper time to bring up how much you hate the president.

============================================================================================================

#4: Images, and what you should do with them
-First off, if you don’t know how to post images, look at the guideline. If you have, continue reading. Now, like I mentioned earlier, don’t spam images, and continuing on that don't post large images either. It really slows everything down and clutters actual talk. If you want to post large images, please post it as a link. Gifs are a special case, as regardless of size they have a few more restrictions. We completely encourage you link gifs at all times, but if you have to use the image code, don't spam it and don't make it hard on the eyes. Otherwise, don’t post it at all. Oh, and if you plan on posting negative or inappropriate things… It goes without saying that's a no. You should already know the consequences for things like that. Instead, enjoy the Chat, smell the roses, take a walk on the beach….Just don’t be annoying regarding images on the Chat.
[As for a size limitation, an image shouldn't noticeably be over 300 pixels in height. If you're unaware of the height, simply link it then]

============================================================================================================

#5: Keep your topics in their respective zone
If you want to roleplay, do it in the Roleplay channel. If you want to talk casually, do it in the General channel. It’s not hard to understand, right? If you’re RPing in a general chat, you should know to move it to the RP Channel. You think you can do that? I should mention that the roleplay channel is open to everyone to roleplay in. If you want a private roleplay with a select group of people, then open a private channel. And naturally, don't be an idiot if you're private-roleplaying.

======================================================================================================================

#6: No illegal or inappropriate links in the Chat
The first part would obviously be things like ROMS, or any sort of Emulation program link-sharing. Sorry, but Emulators are practically just one big legal question mark, and nobody likes Chats being legal question marks by association. The second is obvious, no links that showcase something that would be considered inappropriate or something that incurs a topic which breaks Rule #3. Please understand.

Disclaimer!: If you're happening to post a link that doesn't break any aforementioned rules but still happens to be a bit risque, and I'd like to emphasize the "bit", label it with "NSFW."

======================================================================================================================

#7: Let's try to keep it in a language we can all talk in
As entertaining as it is to share your knowledge of another language, let's try to refrain from having entire conversations in anything besides English. After all, it does seclude quite a part of the Chat from joining a conversation. Of course, using short phrases is fine, and it's understandable if there's a foreign user who doesn't necessarily know English and we have to communicate, but besides that it only confuses Chat.

============================================================================================================
[These new rules are subject to change at any time, and even more new rules will be added as time goes on.]


Questions

>What?! The Legacy Chat and the Xat is gone?! Where are we hosting Sunday Night Chat?!
-On Sundays, and only on Sundays, there will be a channel specifically designed for Sunday Night Chatrooms. It’s labeled Developers, and this is where we’ll hold our talks. Since SNC is currently on hiatus, however, this question doesn't apply at the moment.

>Rewind a bit, BossMan! What’s a channel?!
Channel?
-This picture takes place slightly above the Chat. As you can see, there’s a channel option there, but experiment a bit on Sundays and click Players? Bam, you’ll end up with an option sprouting out, labeled Developers. Click the Developers option, and you’ll be taken to a different section of the Chat. No tomfoolery here folks, so if you want to chat casually or you want to roleplay, do it in their respective zones. Please understand.

>Alright...So can I still post images?
-Why, yes you can! In fact, through the use of the buttons below the Emoji labeled Image, Quote, Link, you can do tons of options! In fact, images even show up! However, there are rules for image-posting, down below.

>So, what was with all that other stuff? Links and the like?
-By clicking on these buttons, you can do a variety of options! Simply click it, put your whatever between the formatting options{like in Prototype}, and watch as it unfolds! You can link things, bold things, or even quote a person in the Chat! Isn’t that dandy?

>So, some guys have colored words? Are they hacking? I call hacks!
See here?
-No need for a riot! See this screenshot here? It’s at the bottom-right of the Chat, and there’s a tiny little wrench there! What happens if you click it though?
[What is this?! It’s the settings tab! If you wish to get rid of it, click on the wrench again. If you want font though, click on “Persist Font Color”. Good? Now, remember that place with the URL stuff? Yeah, near it, there’s something called “font”. What’s that? Well, don’t ask me, try clicking it! Colors will pop out, and from there, you choose the color you like. Good?.....Alright, good.[/i]

>How do I PM people, then?
-You know on the side, how there’s a list of people in the Chat? Click on one of their names, and a few options will pop up. The first option that shows up is “Send Private Message”. Put your text through the format that shows up, much like URL and images, and bingo! You just told a secret! Don’t tell anyone…
PMing in progress

>This Chat looks a bit drab to me…
-Not to worry! Next to the Channel option is “Style”, where you can change what the Chat looks like! Look through em all and choose your favorite! I won’t judge!

Can I play games on here?
-Uh….Clicking on your name will give you a roll dice option! Fair Warning: Spamming of dice will result in a kick or even possibly a ban. Please use your games fairly.

Uh...The sound is getting to me. Can I mute it?
-Near the wrench, the little microphone option. Simply turn it off and on. While I’m here, the button next to it allows you to turn off automoving when someone posts something. Don’t know why you’d click it though.

How do I log in? It asks me to give a username/password
-Sign in with your MMRPG username and password. Yes, it works. A known issue is that the character limit for both sites are inconsistent, so please be aware of that as well.

Alright, last question. Why aren’t you making Mega Man 5 playable?
-..........Wha-You do realize these questions are about Chat, right?
Entirely.
-......Alright?

Section 9001B: Anyone who destroys the chat must give a cuukee, or else the person will be shunned.

If you need further frame of reference, check out the previous chat help guide.

============================================================================================================

So, there’s all you need to know for chatting in this wondrous new chat! Enjoy it, and don't break any of the aforementioned rules! Go through the world with your new skills, learn even more, and of course, just chat with surronding users! That was the point of this entire thing! You realized that by now, right?......Wait, I can’t hear your answer. Fooey, but I've no time for regret since the point of this thread was to make sure you know how to act properly.

You forgot to mention that new rules are subject to be added at any time, and that it's our responsibility to keep up with them [you'll also need to bump whenever a new rule is posted, too].

I think there's also a Roleplay channel last I checked, which means that there should be NO Roleplay in other channels.

gemini-man ...Once again, I have problems staying in the chat while at school...so yeah, if I'm online on here during the day, but not in the chatroom, it means I'm at school. I would instead be hanging out in the legacy chat, but I think we've already retired it at this point. ring-ring

I personally think Xat, Legacy, and AJAX should be useable. Sure, they might not be as good, but hey, at least you'd have an option!
