Single post in Rules!
With the addition of the chat, people seem to be unsure on how the primary site-rules apply to it, so here we are to assist!1. This site is child-friendly. Please behave appropriately with this in mind. 2. No off-site links are to be posted without permission being given first - only from a Moderator. For clarity, this includes images uploaded to the site uploader. We don't know what you upload so it still has to be checked. 3a. The chat is not a trade area - please use the trade forums for this. --This includes asking questions pertaining to the price of items. b. Asking for Dex trades in the chat is not allowed, nor is asking for Evo trades. If you wish to do these things, please ask for help and send a willing recipient a PM rather than spamming the chat with requests. (Don't spam requests for help, either. If nobody responds then nobody is willing to help at that time.) 4. Please do not flood the chat with consistent messages or spam. This includes click begging and specifically going in to the chatroom to ask for battle requests. Avoid elongating your letters, and please do not use excessive caps. 4a. Please try to avoid posts with less than three words consistently. This spams up the chatroom. 5. Please don't turn the chat into a roleplay room. This is not its intended design. 6. Please avoid posting any spoilers in the chat. Hide tags do not work there. In fact, bbcode doesn't work there either. 7. While generic chatspeak such as "lol" and "omg" is allowed, using entirely chatspeak is not allowed. In example, When I talk like this, it is acceptable. but Whn I tlk lik dis It isn't. You have a full keyboard in front of you. Chat speak was primarily used when three letters were assigned to the same key, thus saved time.. However, that's not an issue anymore so let's spell out our words, please. This goes for mobile users as well. You get a full length keyboard. There's really no excuse for this.
