Click on the Chat tab (in between Forum and Upload)

Warning: BETA stage

You are expected to have read this entire document before entering the chatroom.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


CRUNCHYROLL CHAT RULES:

1) Respect the ops (operators) of the room.
NOTE: The (main) operators are thefinalword, Zeronite, mochacafe, Crossy, thenicooole, Bedlam, Scripted , Junglizm, as well as the moderators listed on the staff page (http://www.crunchyroll.com/staff).
They can kick you out from a room, ban you from a room, ban you from the site, and nuke your account. Both forum AND media moderators are chat room ops.
(Note: The following, if used excessively or inappropriately, can result in a kick or a ban)
(It is up to the mod in the room to determine what can be considered kick or ban-appropriate)


2) The chat is still PG-13--meaning no inappropriate topics, discussions, images, or links.

3) The main chatrooms (crunchyroll, anime, games, music, drama, fansubs, uploaders, mods,random) are to be ENGLISH-ONLY. If you wish to speak in another language, make your own chatroom (see below).

4) Do not type in all CAPSLOCK (unless occasionally for humor).

5) Refrain from typing something completely irrelevant (being random) when others are having a conversation.

6) NO FLAMING and/or aggressively cussing/swearing.

7) Type intelligibly. Refrain from extreme 1337, text-speak, or ghetto-talk.

8) DO NOT drag out words, punctuation marks, or add excessive emoticons.

9) Multiple lines of short words (or lines) such as 'blah,' 'hey,' 'hi,' 'u there?' 'lol,' 'haha,' 'what,' 'bye,' and 'bored' are not allowed. This can be considered spamming and will encourage others to spam as well.

10) No asking for email addresses, AIM screen names, MSN contacts, buddy requests, and phone numbers for people to join your group, etc. PMs, GBs, and buddy invitations exist for those purposes.

11) Be in the correct room. To discuss drama, go to the drama room; to discuss anime, go to the anime room, etc. This is similar to the forum, there are sections for specific subjects.

12) Roleplaying is not allowed in the main channels. If you wish to roleplay, you need to create your own channel and roleplay there. Excessive roleplaying after warnings from a mod will result in a kick and, if continued, a ban.

13) Do NOT take advantage of the /me command. Use it sparingly.

14) 'Truth or Dare' or similar games are not allowed in the main chatrooms. You'll have to make your own room to play a chat game with a group of friends.

15) Idling is not allowed. Idling is defined as staying in a chatroom when you are not at your computer. Being away from your computer for a short amount of time is fine but idling to be at the top of the chat list WILL result in a kick. Moderators are allowed to idle kick when they feel it is necessary.

16) Do not repeatedly whisper people who don't want to talk to you. This includes using the "/f m " command to message a bunch of people at the same time. If someone requests that you take them off of your friends list, you have to comply.

17) Do not be a mod "suck up" or shove the chat rules down other users throats. Do not brag about how moderators may show favor to you. Do not manipulate moderators into doing your bidding. Doing any of these will result in a kick or ban from the chatroom or an account (forum/chat) ban if used excessively.

18) No creating the illusion of another user speaking.


Example:
thenicooole: Hi, I'm going to kill you all. <then a bunch of spaces to create a new line>*
slowdanse: Me first!


19) The chat cannot be discontinued.

REGARDING BANS:

Getting Unbanned:
Chat room bans are usually not permanent, but unlike forum bans they do not automatically expire.
They must be manually lifted by the Moderator.
If banned, you should PM the moderator who banned you after 3 days to remind them to lift the ban.
(Most mods don't have the time to keep track of it.)
Unbans are usually granted after 3 days if good behavior has been shown but can take longer.

For Severe Offenses:
Ban length is determined on a case-to-case basis.

Edit: Thanks Shinji! =]
Oh, I also think this will greatly reduce any chat going on in the RPs, and it'll reduce some spam in the forums. =]

Yay! But, the highlighting problem still needs to be fixed. =]

But, overall, it's really fun! And easy-to-use! ^-^

I found this a while ago by accident when it didn't work ^-^ - i thought i had broken cr!
It's a great feature which will make the chatting option alot more obvious! Less chat and trolling ^-^

Now, just for the pink and purple skin with the heart shaped tabs ^-^
