Forum Rules and Etiquette

We ask you to keep the conversation civil, and in good taste. Please refrain from using vulgar language, personal attacks, racial, ethnic, or sexual innuendos. We have different age groups that visit this site, so keep this in mind when posting.

You are free to disagree with others, but if you stoop to personal abuse or attacks, your post(s) will be deleted. If you are insulted by a post, please report the post, but PLEASE DO NOT retaliate.

Advertising or promoting any product or service on any of our bulletin boards is prohibited, unless you have permission or are posting in website promotions. We want to be fair to those who sponsor this site through advertising.


Illegal suggestions/material - Respect the copyrights of other people, websites, software and printed media. Please no pointers, how-to's, advocating any illegal activity.

The invisibility feature is not allowed to be used by members. Moderators can see the hidden users and anyone found breaching this rule will be banned for 3 days.  


Questionable content - Some content issues are left to the discretion of the individual moderators, but may include any material that is knowingly false and/or defamatory, misleading, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, that otherwise violates any law, or that encourages conduct constituting a criminal offence.


Personal Info - Do not post personal information such as email addresses or telephone numbers.


Impersonating/accessing another user's account - You may not impersonate another board member or create an account specifically for the purpose of provoking other users. Also, accessing or using someone else's account or attempting to access another poster's account is strictly prohibited. This will not be tolerated and you will be banned.


Post in the appropriate forum - Please read each forum description before posting to ensure you are posting in the correct forum. Off topic posts will be moved to the correct forum.


No duplicate or repeat posts - If no-one answers your question or responds to your post. Posting the same question over and over or in every forum will just annoy people and will not get answers.


Profanity - Keep offensive language to a minimum. While we might let you get away with anything you might hear on network television or radio, don't go overboard.


Obscene material - No posting of pornographic material or links to it.

Flaming, Bashing, and Trolling - Hate posts and personal attacks will not be tolerated on the Forums, as is posting topics specifically to provoke a negative response from someone (AKA trolling).

Spam - Purposely spamming a message board with senseless, vacuous, or empty messages is highly frowned upon, unless posting in test forums where spam is allowed .

Links to other websites - Links are not allowed in threads unless it is relevant to a specific topic. Personal links to your website or websites you are affiliated with are NOT allowed. We have a web promotion section in this forum which you can post links in.

Signatures - No posting of pornographic material or links. No links allowed in signatures including images that are clickable links.
Links that promote chat avenues chat rooms or forum are allowed.
Sites being promoted can only be done so in the Website Promotion forum. Those continually breaking the rules will be banned for 7 days. Repeat offenders will be banned permanently.

Moderator Requests - Do not post any requests to become a chat moderator. Please PM or email the appropriate chat room admins.

Flashing screens are not, under no circumstances, to be used in signatures or posts. This can be dangerous to some users with Photo Sensitive Epilepsy and can cause serious harm.

User Accounts - You may only have one account on these forums. All users discovered to have multiple accounts will have at least one of their accounts deleted or banned. We have an automatic detection system that tells us who has multiple accounts, so please do not risk it.

Posting is a privilege That can and will be revoked for anyone violating the rules of common sense and decorum.

Failure to comply with the above rules repeatedly will result in the immediate banning of that individual user.

While it is virtually impossible for us to review messages or confirm the validity of information posted, we try to monitor the contents of messages that are posted. We are not responsible for any false information or inappropriate comments and we do not vouch for the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any message. The messages express the views of the author of the message and that author alone, not necessarily the views of #1 Chat Central or anyone else associated with us. Any user who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact an administrator or moderator immediately by email or private message or by reporting the post. We have the ability to remove questionable or inappropriate messages and we reserve the right to delete any message for any reason whatsoever. If we determine that removal of a message is necessary, we will make every effort to remove that message as soon as possible. However, please realize that we may not be able to remove or edit particular messages immediately.

Anyone that asks for your username and password is not to be trusted. Chatmaster does not ask for that info.. neither does any other Admin so please do not give out your info


The Most Important Rule of All is to have fun!
