Before using dAmn in general you are expected to know your basic way around the Chat Network Policies and Proper Etiquette of deviantART. These are your basic rules for all chatrooms.
In particular the major rules concerning #WriteRoom are those concerning offence - any form of offence will be treated accordingly.
#WriteRoom is an English chatroom only. We know that a lot of people speak different languages, but we don't. If you need help with your English send a note to the moderators and they will get back to you with translation tools.
The following are more considered guidelines than rules
In case of a heated discussion, conduct yourself like a respectable member of society. Any insults between parties in arguments will be taken severely. And if you see a heated discussion, don't backseat mod; more often than not it only prolongs the problem. If the mods are away from their screen, tab one.
And you don't have to talk lit. Discussions of non writing topics are okay and are actually the usual fare here. If somebody comes in and asks for opinions or critique on something they've written, please do help by all means but we won't force it.
It goes without saying that we promote good use of the English language, but if you slip into bad spelling or occasional chat speak don't worry - mods should only chase you upon it if they think it is becoming a distinct and major problem.
Information on rule violations
If you have fallen foul of the rules you will first be warned. At the next rule break you will be kicked and then after that banned/boxed. Some rules are, of course, seen as more important than others. Please take into account that most mods will wipe the slate clean as it were with each session. The mods will not however forget entirely about action taken whatever it may be. As such, if you gain a rap-sheet of bad behavior over time then you will become more likely to get issued a ban. Regardless, when action is taken do not make the problem worse - take a breath and come back in refreshed.
On a similar note if you have been banned/boxed and you feel it's unjust, note The-Monoblos or Absit---Invidia to present your case (taking screeenshots of why you were banned will help but don't rely on them). Do NOT rejoin the room with an alternate account. This will be taken as malicious and will extend your ban; no exceptions.
