KinkstersChat Rules (updated: 2018-08-25)

Post by d0rkbunni » Tue Jul 31, 2018 2:33 pm

KINKSTERSCHAT RULES

KinkstersChat.com was founded by fans of KINK and ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLES who believe in the need for a freely available live chat medium. We're run BY Kinksters FOR Kinksters, and for anyone else interested in the world of kink and fetish, as well as for anyone involved or interested in the BDSM, S&M and D/s lifestyles... and even if you are vanilla, we wont hold that against you....much!



1. ADULTS ONLY

This is an ADULT server! If you are not at least 18 years old, you are required to leave this server IMMEDIATELY. If you are unable to act adult when the need arises you are also required to leave this server IMMEDIATELY. If we discover that you are underage or are causing disruptions of our rooms by acting in an immature way you will be removed from the KinkstersChat.com chatserver.

"Adults only" includes ANY and ALL CONTENT shared on the server, which means that pictures, videos, lifelike cartoons etc of underaged persons are also not allowed on the KinkstersChat.com chatserver.


2. RESPECT & PERSONAL PRIVACY/SECURITY

Please respect others so that they may, in turn, respect you. Keep it friendly and your chat experience, as well as that of your fellow chatters, will be a good one.

If a chatter is found to be harassing, bashing or flaming other chatters, rooms or chat networks, or is found to be (in the opinion of KC Staff) deliberately or maliciously disrupting conversations they will be removed from the server.

Please do not share your personal information with strangers on the internet!
If you come into possession of personal information of another chatter, please be discreet and ethical about it. Any and all use of the personal information of others will result in a serverban from KinkstersChat. This includes outing your fellow chatters, stalking them in their real life as well as sharing personal images of others (eg. revenge porn).

Please report any abuse to us in #Help or via our e-mail addresses, attaching the appropriate logs

3. PRIVATE MESSAGES

We do NOT have a rule against unexpected and unsolicited private messages, as such a rule cannot be reliably enforced. However, if you are receiving such messages, we invite you to make good use of the ignore-functions, thus demonstrating that you are, in fact, adult. Please be advised that announcing your ignorelist, as well as complaints about PMs, in the main rooms are viewed as room disruptions and will be treated as such.

For more information on how to use the ignore-functions, as well as a few other tips and tricks, go to our forum.


4. TABOO SUBJECTS & ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES

This server is for people engaging in, or with interest in, BDSM and its related kinks and fetishes. We DO NOT allow the following:

* Any and all BEASTIAL play or fantasy
* Any and all INCEST play or fantasy
* Any and all roleplay or fantasy about ACTUAL CHILDREN or CHILD AVATARS**
* Any and all AGEPLAY, that is not BDSM Guardianship, ABDL or middle/little play
* Any and all nicks promoting illegal activities
* Any and all nicks portraying ages under 18

* Littleplay (within the BDSM Guardianship dynamic)
* Furry and petplay (eg. human, humanhybdrid play, fantasy creatures)

If you are seen to be actively promoting and/or actively seeking out an illegal activity in real life, you will be removed from our server and, in certain cases, have your information passed on to your ISP and relevant law enforcement agencies.

If you want to engage in edgy, delicious roleplaying with willing partners either in private or in main, please always be aware to not break the law or our rules. The responsibility to make sure you are not engaging in illegal activities on KC, falls on YOU, as a responsible kinky adult. Always make sure your roleplaying partner is not engaging in illegal activities and report partners in breach to us in #Help or send us an e-mail with the pertinent information.

Any and all chatters who are found to be complicit in illegal activities on KinkstersChat.com will be subject to the same action as the offending party. You will be found to be complicit if you do not report your knowledge of others chatters illegal activities on KinkstersChat.com to us IMMEDIATELY after you obtained the knowledge. Incidents may be reported by sending us an e-mail containing logs with the pertinent information. The identity of the reporting party will be treated in confidence.

PLEASE remember, roleplays are healthy and fun to talk about as well as engage in, but they need to stay just that, roleplays. Don't Cross The Line!

ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES
KinkstersChat.com completely disallows any and all discussions that deal with the promotion or seeking out of any illegal activity, including recreational drugs.

Non-compliance with such a request could lead to a ban from the room in question or, in certain cases, the server.

8. USERS IN CRISIS

Here, at KinkstersChat, we are committed to doing our best for our chatters. With that in mind, we are not trained therapists and are not qualified to deal with chatters who are feeling suicidal or in an excessively depressed state.

We will consider all threats of suicide a serious issue and will deal with said threats according to the rules of the server. Similarly, we will consider any excessive displays of depression in main channel as an indication that a break is needed.

If you are in a fragile state of mind or considering suicide, we require you to disconnect from KinkstersChat (if necessary we will enforce a disconnection) and suggest that you make contact with one of the many resources on the web, where there are qualified counsellors and peers to help you through such a vulnerable time.

If you need a place to start we would suggest visiting: http://www.mentalhealthforum.net/ or you can locate a suitable service near you, by visiting: http://www.befrienders.org/



TL;DR
Don't be a dick. Go back to the beginning and read the rules! Also, short summary: Be adult and sensible. If your behaviour isn't suitable in the real world (legal kinks aside), then don't fucking do it. Don't rain on the parade of others. No bashing. No children or child avatars. Don't do illegal shit. Don't cross the line from roleplay to reality. Be safe and take care of yourself. Oh, and please do as our staff ask.

Cheers.
