Chat Rules
revision 2.0

These are the rules on proper etiquette while using the Chat. Every time you enter chat, you are agreeing to abide by these rules. If you choose not to, then do not enter chat (or be prepared for a ban).

First and foremost these are merely an extension of the main forum rules. Please familiarize yourself with those as well, they're pretty simple. :) And above all else, be courteous! :mrgreen:

1. Please do not ask to be a moderator. If we want you to be a mod, we will ask. (the mods are generally simply automatically assigned from whomever is already a TJP site moderator.)

2. No spamming. In a chatroom, along with the usual definition, this means repeating yourself over and over trying to get people's attention. This will likely just upset people. Please give people time to respond, or understand that they might not be responding if they don't know the answer to a question you've asked etc.

3. Please keep the CAP LOCKS TO THE MINIMUM. It looks like you're shouting at someone. :P

4. A moderator's decision is final. If they see fit to ban you, then that's it. As most people who use chat know, the mods here do not ban without a valid reason and the mods are very nice people. Some mods may be more tolerant than others but that's your choice if you wish to risk a ban.

5. Be nice to mods. This should be obvious. ;) The quickest way to a ban is to insult a mod. Seriously, its like jumping of a cliff. With concrete shoes. And an 800lb sumo wrestler on your back.

6. If anyone wishes to complain about someone else please PM a moderator and they will try to assist you with any problems as soon as possible. Please do not escalate grudge matches, or have people feel unwelcome. We want to keep this a friendly place for everyone.

Beyond that, keep in mind that people of a wide range of skill levels from complete beginner to native Japanese chat in the lounge. The topics can vary widely. :) Just say hi when you come in and if the conversation is all in Japanese and you feel lost, just say so and I'm sure people won't mind dropping back to English, or using romaji if you're still working on learning the kana etc. :) We're a friendly bunch.

These are the main rules to chat. If you have any questions, you can always ask a moderator. The reason they exist is to help everyone with any problems. They will resolve conflicts, help with Japanese, or just be there to chat about anything you wish.

If there are any questions concerning the chat room (problems or just general questions), feel free to PM me or any other admin.

Thank you for reading the rules. Happy chatting and Japanese studying! Ganbatte ne!

よろしくおねがいします! :bow:

The chat address is pretty simple to remember... http://thejapanesepage.com/chat

As long as you're logged in to TJP, you should join "the lounge" automatically and be chatting without needing to do anything else.

If you're not logged in, it should redirect you to the login page. (due to page caching, it seems to hang sometimes while trying to do the redirect... so if you weren't logged in yet and you just see the "chat loading..." page for more than 10 seconds or so... just refresh the page and you should be taken to the login.)

We hope you'll stop by and say hi!

We're also still working on things like the quizbot, which is there already, but due to a current limitation of 1 question per answer, we can't really add the vocabulary quizzes yet etc... fixing bugs and adding new features as we go. You can get a list of possible commands by typing "/help" (without the quotes) and you can create a new room by typing "/join newroomname" etc. Just ask if you have questions. :)

よろしくおねがいします! :bow:
