Keep it friendly; no personal attacks. Don't be a jerk.
The channel operators decide who is being a jerk.
Profanity is permitted, but rule #1 still applies.
Keep the drama to a minimum. Cliff-jumping is prohibited.
During gameplay, try to limit the amount of off-topic banter.
Avoid pasting huge blocks of text into the chat.
If you are a jerk, a drama queen, or excessively disruptive, we will warn you.
If you continue to offend, we will kick you.
Finally, if necessary, we will ban you.
Note: If someone is annoying you, but they have not earned a kick or ban from an operator, you can type /ignore name to block them from your sight.
NOTE: LIVE CHAT IS NOT ON A DELAY
Spoilers abound! If you watch or listen to the game on a long-delayed feed (online, for example) you may read details about the game in the chat before you get to see or hear them. If you are on such a delay, and you do not wish to read about the game before you experience it yourself, you might want to look away from the chat while the clock is ticking, and check in during commercials, time-outs and intermissions.
