Forums: Index Watercooler Chat Edit Rule


So, As an admin, and as another admin, Jäzzi, (Know known as EnemyPeacemaker) have said, we are thinking about dropping the Chat Edit Requirement and as a rule we need to have a group discussion about this.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  15:29,1/11/2013    4,178

Well I do not use the chat, but other peoples does. Also, if the chat policy will be dropped it can also mean that others will advertise through the chat freely and can freely rebel against this wiki about that advertising is not included to the rule. So I am actually in consideration in dropping it or not. KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 15:32, January 11, 2013 (UTC)
I would like the chat edit rule to be dropped. When it was put in place, a few users were following me from Central chat to this chat. I wanted to get a way for them to not come into the chat as I felt stalked. But now that's not a problem. I'd like to be more community oriented now, and with chat we can do that. Advertising may be a problem, but we can revise the rules. – EnemyPeacemaker 15:37, January 11, 2013 (UTC)
Revising the policy came also in my head after writing that. Well then I have nothing to say than agree with you. KidProdigy (Local UserpageLocal Talk) 15:45, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

The chat rules can be changed, as necessary, to accommodate the dropping of the edit requirement.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  15:48,1/11/2013    4,178  

I think it's safe to say that we're going to revise the chat policy and drop the edit requirement. – EnemyPeacemaker 16:58, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

Makes sense, I support. --Shockstorm (talk) 21:08, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

Policy Revision

  • Although you can talk about anything in chat, we ask that you do not talk about the following:
    • Advertising another wiki
    • Personal information.
    • Another user in a negative way.
    • Inappropriate topics.
  • We ask that you do not swear in chat.
    • "Damn", "Hell", and "Crap" are acceptable, anything else is not.
  • We kindly ask that you do not roleplay in the chat.
  • Do not spam.
    • Spamming means you post something that could be posted in one line. (ie: "I went to the park yesterday". If you turn that into "I/went/to/the/park/yesterday" it will be considered spam.)
  • We kindly ask that you do not advertise another site in chat.
  • Do not sock or meatpuppet.
  • Do not pretend to be another user.
  • Please listen to the warnings given by a chat moderator or an admin.

The message in bold is what I've changed. All help on revising the policy is welcome and needed. – EnemyPeacemaker 16:58, January 11, 2013 (UTC)

Sounds good to me.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  17:18,1/11/2013    4,178  
I also plan on revising the page a little bit. Give information on what the messages say "Tackle/one-on-one battle" even I'm confused after coming back. – EnemyPeacemaker 17:28, January 11, 2013 (UTC)
Tackle imthink is to either ban or kick, give a badge is for giving moderator status. One-on-one... imdunno   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  21:57,1/13/2013    4,178  
Tackle is kick an pd I think Hyper Beam is Ban or something. Yeah I was confused with the weird names at first but the symbols at the side of the commands make it slightly easier. Rainbow Shifter 23:04, January 13, 2013 (UTC)

If I remember correctly, we used to get onto users for linking other websites. But I don't think that we want to do anything like that, because sometimes that helps with chatting. But that is only just as a long as they didn't give out links to another wiki and what not.

  • Youtube, is fine.
  • Facebook can be PM'ed or be put out to all of chat, (Preferably PM'ed)
  • Twitter can be PM'ed or be put out to all of chat. (Preferably PM'ed)
  • Sensual websites, are not okay. (Please don't say the names of any or say what I'm saying, because my computer will immediately block this page. Thanks in advance)

Those are the only few main websites that I can think of at the moment.   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  13:36,1/14/2013    4,178  

yay and nay

So is this a go?   Slayingthehalcyon   (Talk)  17:03,1/21/2013    4,178  

I'd approve of it being abolished. From the looks of it (correct me if I'm wrong) the chat isn't that populated (from my experience, anyway) so I wouldn't see that much harm letting users with under the current edit number in. For now, I'd reckon it's better trying to get more users in chat regardless of editcount. User:Cannk/sig 17:21, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
I would also approve the abolishment seeming as having that big red message on chat when you join can be a bit threatening and daunting to new users and turn them away from us and make them less likely to edit more (something we currently need) Rainbow Shifter 17:25, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
Yes, it's a go. – EnemyPeacemaker 22:43, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
 I was kinda Nay but what the hay I'm Yay :P The Timid Black Guy 00:11, January 24, 2013 (UTC)
