Overall please when using the Chatbox consider the moto "Consideration for others". Always bear that in mind and it is unlikely we will ever have a problem.
Consider to yourself is the chat either "Interesting, funny, lucrative, or usefull", if it is none of those then is it really needed? If it is at least one of those then it is likely to be fine.
If asking a question for help, please check it has not already been asked and answered on the forum already. If it has not check the archives of the chat box that day for an answer. If it is not there and it is time critical (needed within 24hrs) then ask on the chat box. If a question can wait to be answered 24hrs or more away please post on the relevant thread on the forum or start a new one.
(This should stop/limit duplication of the same simple Qs again and again which can annoy people when its already been said several times that day if you just look for it)
RE Swearing, please consider the following factors, is it likely to offend someone? A swear word at someone such as "You're a Fucking idiot" is 10x worse then saying "Oh Fuck Wigan just scored". The word is not a problem, the context you use it in is important though. Consider also the time of day, dont say at 2PM what you might do at 10PM. Basicly use common sense a lot but follow the above guidelines.
It is really not necessary to say how much you make or have made, it is irrelevant really. Why some people do we are not sure and it is not going to be a rule that you cant do it, but really we dont think it is being very sensible.
Do not post any False information delibrately, this will lead to a permanent ban instantly. (Being wrong is OK, there is a difference).
Do not argue with people, anyone can say pretty much anything once, and you can reply with anything once, after that though it is time to move on you have both had your say it is just boring from now on.
Do not be overly negative towards any people, companies, websites. Do not make offensive remarks about people by name no matter how much you dislike them, there is a difference between critisism and slander!
If you ever have a problem with anything said on the chatbox please report it to any TGT moderator.
ADDED March 2013:
1) Could we please also stress that this is not a dating website so there is no need to send "pics" of yourself or ask for them from others. There is no need to tell the World the last time you had sex, and there is no need to go into any detail of the last time this did occour. There are probably places on the internet who would love to here all about it, this is not one of them.
2) Please do not link to any pictures or websites which are pornographic.
3) If a pretty girl appears on TV or just generally comes up in discussion that is not a reason to start discussing her various attributes and what you would like to do to her! The same goes for girls about boys. Not that we want to be prudes about it, or that we dont like pretty girls (and boys) just as much as the next person, but have some respect.
