- Remember, think before you post. The Chat Room is a real time or a live venue for a conversation. Use common sense, and don't be a jerk.
- We recommend that you post a greeting when entering the Chat Room. This is not required but it will be a very warm gesture to your co members / chatters.
- Observe first what is ongoing inside the Chat Room. Please familiarize with the topic before you join an ongoing conversation between two or more members. DO NOT immediately join in especially when the chatting members do not know you very well. That is why we recommend to you to post a greeting first once entering the chat room in order that your presence will be known.
- DO NOT use ALL CAPITAL LETTERS in the Chat Room. This is considered impolite and discourteous.
- DO NOT use foul language (especially cursing) in the Chat Room. Strong language and vulgarity are prohibited. Crude sex words are also prohibited. Please use common sense and courtesy. If you wouldn't say it in a polite manner then you shouldn't say it here. These are grounds for expelling OR banning you permanently in the Chat Room or in FSS.
- As a common courtesy, use only Filipino and/or English in the lobby. Should you want to to use your own dialect or any other language other than Filipino or English, please do so in your private chatroom or in whispers.
- DO NOT flood or spam in any form. Repeated typing or posting the same thing over and over, posting the same link over and over, or just posting messages that consist of punctuation (...), or posting a single word on each line of the same word or number - this can cause you to be expelled in the chat room.
