Positive Chat Environment
I try to foster a safe environment where the community feels safe to express themselves without risk of criticism or judgement. Sometimes a chatter may threaten the integrity of that environment without directly breaking one of the other rules - in those cases the chatter simply does not mesh with the community and may be subject to a ban. To avoid this please get the vibe of the stream before chatting.
Some example situations that have threatened the positive environment in the past:
Devil’s Advocate Behavior on topics with a clearly wrong side.
Self Centered Discussions - where all of the chatters messages are about themselves and when they participate in other discussions they try to make it about themselves.
This rule seems obvious but for those who need a definition of hate speech; Any message that promotes, encourages, or facilitates discrimination, denigration, objectification, harassment, or violence based on race, age, sexuality, physical characteristics, gender identity, disability, military service, religion and/or nationality will be considered hate speech is prohibited. We don’t allow the use of hateful slurs of any kind. If you have to question whether your message violates this rule, don’t send it.
Please don’t fill up the chat with repeated messages or copy pasta. No one likes to see it in chat and it makes interaction difficult.
Please refrain from posting private information of yourself or others (especially without permission) in the public chat. This is for your safety as well as anyone else involved.
