Disciplinary Procedure

Warn: A request for a user to halt his or her unsavory behaviour.

Kick: Forceful removal of a user from the chat, only after a warning.

Ban: Prolonged removal from the chat for a length determined by chat staff. This method of discipline should always be a final resort.

Evidence forgery will result in a ban - length will be determined by the collective staff.

Ban appeals and any other conflict pertaining to discipline must be privately addressed to staff. Logs/screenshots are helpful. If you feel you have been unfairly or incorrectly banned, you may address the issue via the Ban Appeal Topic on the forum.


Staff Discretion

In some cases, chat staff are entrusted with the liberty of discretion, thus reserving the right to utilize their power in the most effective and just manner. The Staff reserves the right to handle each offense differently depending on the level of blatancy and the nature of the situation.
