As an op from the #PSOW chat room:
1) Speak English.
Not E-english with your inabilities to even spell simple words like "you". That extra 1/4 of a second it takes to hit those extra keys will not kill you. People will think better of you for using proper English.
2) NO ASKING FOR CHEAT METHODS!
Asking for cheat methods and instructions on how to dupe are legitimate means for INSTANT BANNING. Duping is a bug exploit, not a feature, thus it is STILL CHEATING.
3) Do not flame the operators.
Get kicked? Deal with it. Flaming the operators and threatening to harm them in real life will lead only to more kicks and bannings.
4) Do not ask for ops.
The answer will always be NO.
5) Do not push your luck.
Due to certain abbrieviations being overused (see: "lol"), they may be banned. Topics are set for a reason, read them. It will serve you well. Should a new rule be posted in the topic, DO NOT PUSH YOUR LUCK BY VIOLATING IT.
6) No homophobia.
There are many other words you can use besides "gay".
7) Make your insults worth reading.
Should you decide to throw insults, make them worth the time needed to read them.
This includes smiley spam. It's fucking annoying, and you just look retarded doing it. Repeated offences will lead to temporary bannings.
9) Try to have fun
Note %99 of things said in #psow are for comical, not offensive means. Too many people take too many things way too seriously.
10) Wait for replies
Do not enter the chat and expect people to respond to you 2 seconds after you enter a sentence. People do have lives beyond their computer screen, and people do idle in the chatroom. Do not IM every person in the chat room looking for a response. It is an extreme annoyance, and repeated harrasings may lead to kicks.
11) Do not abuse the bots.
The bots had some pretty nifty stat tracking features and quoting features that got removed due to idiots abusing them. Should features be programmed into the bot, do not abuse them (see: people asking for the weather every 5 minutes, people wanting to see how many words they typed after every sentence)
12) Be careful what you wish for.
Do not antagonize the ops. Do not feed their urges to kick. Don't be surprised if you're on the receiving end of a boot if you ask "what are you going to do, kick me?"
13) Do not flame me for this post. Do not call me a dictator or some crap like that. Read, understand, attempt to obey.
Shape up or ship out,
WarChild, #psow operator
