not explained within the rules, consult one of the operators.
It is never our intention to make the channel a real
"property" of someone. However, we feel we must point
out that the IRC is not a democratic environment. Channelowner's
decisions are final. If an operator misbehaves, please
report to the channelowner. We can always see what can
be done about the situation.
||Definition of terms
||Topics to be avoid
|| Rules: the rules, channel policy,
meaning this document.
|| Channelowner: person that determines
the channel's policy.
|| Operators: persons that enforce
the channel policy (also channelowner).
|| Joining the channel means acceptance
of these rules and agreeing to abide them at all
|| Your stay in the channel will
be entirely at your own risk. No person in the
channel with @p status (channelowner, operators)
can be held responsible for any damages, physically
or mentally, inflicted on you or any of your properties.
|| The rules of the channel may change
in the future to best fit the channel's continued
|| These changes will be announced
in the channel topic.
|| The founder of the channel is
|| Operators: moondust(NL),
Blue(EN), Viminalis(EN), (EN)bigdaddy, Bosch(NL)
(they make decisions about operator status, bans
|| All other chatters must be respected
at all times. If you feel you are not treated
with the proper respect report this to an operator.
If the person is an operator, report this to the
channelowner. They will take appropriate action
if necessary. Remember, the main idea of the channel
is to be nice and tolerant towards eachother.
|| Within the channel it is prohibited
to talk about topics that are upsetting for some
of the chatters (those topics are listed below
on 5. Topics to be avoid) Also prohibited: insulting,
swearing, cursing, discriminating
|| No person may be refused access
to #mcdd, unless he/she has proven in the past
to not be able to follow the rules. Facts from
other channels do not count. Only after someone
breaks a rule within this channel, he/she can
be refused access to #mcdd.
|| No shouting (a full sentence in
100% CAPS), advertisements, spamming or flooding
in the channel.
|| Don't be lame on purpose. "Lame"
describes many forms of conduct. It is important
to keep in mind that all behaviour that is irritating
or annoying is not allowed, e.g. excessive colors,
excessive pop-ups, Op-whining, nickname-spamming,...
|| Don't beg for ops.
|| No insulting or offending nicknames.
Offending names will be banned. Repeated violations
from the same host will lead to your hostmask
|| Idling is allowed for 4 hours.
Anyone that has an idle-time higher than 4 hours
can be removed from the channel. They are still
welcome though when they want to return.
|| When you join #mcdd, you present
yourself with a little description, you tell where
you live, what your age is, whether you are m/f
and which diagnose you've got. Also some information
about your intention for joining this channel
should be given.
|| This is a family-orientated room.
Therefore, no sexually explicit topics will be
tolerated. Keep it clean!
|| All operators (and channelowner
for that matter) are bound by the same rules as
normal users. The only exception is that they
have to take care that these rules are lived by.
|| The operator status is not for
your own pleasure, it is because the channelowner
trusts you to keep the channel tidy. Funkicks,
no-reason bans, or otherwise abuse of your @ps
are not allowed. Such behaviour will result in
the removing of the @p status.
|| Fights between Operators will
not be tolerated. If there is an argument between
ops, they should take it to the channelowner.
|| Operator status will be granted
to trusted persons, or persons important to the
channel by the channelowner. Asking for it will
|| Operators are advised to stay
op-less until their @ is needed. That is, don't
ask Cstar or stardust for ops until a situation
arises which requires an operator.
|| Operator status in the past will
not mean that you get your operator status back
when you have (temporarily) left the channel.
| Because of the typical phobias
that people diagnosed with McDD can have towards
unusual subjects/objects, it is provided that
those will not be mentioned in the channel to
avoid upsetting these people. If you are having
a problem with a certain subject to be discussed,
because it causes you to rage, you are asked to
contact one of the operators in private (/query
nickname) to mention it. They will ask a few questions
about it and will make a note in the list of topics
to be avoid. It is not forbidden to talk about
those topics in private with other persons. If
you want more information about those topics,
you can ask one of the operators in private.
