This is a list of official policies on Chat
C.Syde's Wiki has a dedicated on-wiki Chat feature as part of the Media Wiki software which also allows real-time communication between users of the wiki. By using Chat, you agree to be bound by these policies and acknowledge that violation of policies can result in being kicked or banned from Chat.
There is no official topic and any kind of discussion is allowed whether it be related to the wiki, or anything off-topic. However discussions must be suitable for a general audience.
Spamming/flooding Chat will not be tolerated and may be given a kick and/or a ban from Chat and in severe enough cases, an on-wiki sanction may also be applied.
Harassment of other users, flaming or trolling is unacceptable and may be addressed by an administrator via a warning, kick or a ban from the Chat and if severe enough, may result in an on-wiki sanction.
Swearing is permitted in chat, as long as the swear words aren't used to insult other users. Evading a ban using sock-puppets will result in a ban on-wiki too as part of our policies which forbid sock-puppetry.
Flatulence or anything else that is similar, just as discussing topics about bodily fluids etc. is not permitted in chat, and you will receive a warning if you do this. Failing to heed the warning will most likely result in a kick, or if the case is severe enough, a ban from the Chat.
Discussing topics related to suspected sock-puppetry is not permitted in chat, although a private discussion is tolerable. If a user needs to discuss topics related to sock-puppetry with an administrator, they will need to do so in Chat via private message. If there are no administrators in the Chat, a user will need to ask an administrator to join them in the Chat first.
Chat Moderators are marked with a star next to their name when viewed in Chat. Administrators and Discussion Moderators are chat moderators by default. They are able to kick or ban users who do not follow the policies set above.
A kick is a temporary removal from the Chat and serves as a warning. A ban can have a limited duration or be indefinite, depending on the severity of the case and any past action taken against the user.
The duration of a ban will correspond roughly to the existing policies on blocking users from the Wiki. Bans from Chat can be viewed here.
