Be considerate with your language, and don't be an annoyance to others. #Thumbsshare Moderators reserve the right to kick or possibly ban any parties involved in heated arguments and discussion. While rules may not be technically broken by the participating members at the time, it is detrimental to the flow of the room to allow such altercations to continue. Therefore, it is within any Moderator's power to hold those responsible for not controlling their opinions, behaviors, and tempers.
Limit the use of profanity. Racist Slurs, anti-Semitic or other derogatory remarks about philosophies and religions, as well as highly offensive and hostile remarks based on gender or sexual preference will result in a kick and/or ban from #Thumbsshare.
Threatening, directly insulting, or harassing your fellow chatters is prohibited and can result in an immediate ban from the chatroom. (This rule extends to journals related to events/deviants in the chatroom.)
Do not ask A/S/L or any variations of this. Such as, "How old is everyone?" You may ask one (i.e. location) as long as it fits into natural conversation and is aimed at one person in particular.
Please do not ask for critiques, comments, pageviews, favorites or full-views in #Thumbsshare. Generally, if you are sharing a thumb, you are already asking for such and asking is redundant. Not only this, it adds unnecessary clutter. If there is something in particular that you would like specific feedback on in the room you may ask chatters occasionally [not every post] for such specific feedback, though in general our members provide feedback in the room at their leisure.
If you were banned, do not create multiple accounts and/or come in on your other existing accounts. You cannot avoid a ban. If you are caught doing so, you will be banned on all accounts, and the ban will be lengthened or, most likely, made permanent. If you are a member and you are banned you will return as a Guest and will need to go through the same process as before to become a member.
Bots (with the exception of ~Thumbbot
) are not allowed in #Thumbsshare without prior permission from a founder. Any identified bots will be instantly banned and possibly their owner as well. Using scripts to post thumbs, spam, or promote any other unsavory behavior is considered against our community values and will also result in a ban. Check out our FAQ
for a useful timer script.
Do not put moderators on /ignore or use any script/addition to auto ignore moderators. This obviously prevents us from moderating your behavior in the chat and leaves us with no choice but to remove you from the chat room.
Misrepresentation (i.e. pretending to be another user or pretending not to be yourself under another name) may result in a kick or ban.
Because club accounts are maintained by multiple users and it is impossible for moderators to determine which user is on the account, club accounts are not allowed in #Thumbsshare.
#Thumbsshare is English only. Please refrain from speaking in other languages. This rule has been enacted to make moderation possible in all instances, as moderators obviously cannot moderate a language they cannot understand. DO NOT
ask to be promoted. Any requests to be promoted to any user level [Members, Seniors, Moderator] will be ignored and could result in a ban. Asking will only ensure you will never be promoted. <a href="thumbshare.deviantart.com/jour…
