IRC Guidelines

The following guidelines serve as a reference document for both moderators and general users of the MyAnimeList IRC channel, located at #myanimelist@irc.rizon.net. They are a supplement to the Site & Forum Guidelines and take precedence in the event of a conflict. The IRC moderators (ops/@s/full stars), forum moderators (admins/&s/keys) and administrators (owners/~s/houses) reserve the right to make exceptions to these rules whenever they believe it is necessary to do so to maintain proper channel decorum.

If you have any questions regarding any of the rules listed below, feel free to message an IRC moderator or KentaTC.

General IRC Rules
    I. Behavior
    1. Behave in a clean and civil manner.
    2. Spamming is not allowed.
    3. Spoilers are not allowed, unless properly hidden using coloured text.
    4. Do not abuse/harass/troll others; this includes insults.
    5. Racism and other derogatory language is not tolerated; this includes slurs.
    6. Refrain from backseat modding. This includes telling another user to stop breaking a rule or calling others trolls. However, you are encouraged to PM a mod if you believe their attention is required.
    7. Do not discuss bans on the channel. Please PM the appropriate moderator for ban-related assistance.
    8. Do not discuss ignores on the channel. Ignores are strictly for the ignoring user's own benefit and do not serve as a topic of discussion.
    9. Only use English when speaking in the channel.

    II. Links & Link Content
    1. Do not post malicious links. This includes links which are intended to steal information from the visitor, transmit malicious software to the visitor's computer and/or otherwise harass the visitor.
    2. All NSFW links must be tagged (i.e. NSFW: URL).
    3. Porn and other extreme images/links may not be posted on the channel for any reason, even if tagged.
    4. Refrain from advertising on the channel.

    III. Technical Restrictions
    1. Nicknames must not:
      1. contain offensive themes or inflammatory language.
      2. impersonate IRC staff or other members (e.g. Xini1).
      3. exceed 20 characters (when talking in the channel; idling is okay).
    2. Do not use script responders of any kind.
    3. Only use colored text when marking spoilers.

Failure to abide by these rules will result in various consequences, ranging from verbal warnings to channel bans.

Violation and Ban Policy

Bans from the channel increase in length for each consecutive infraction and are of the following durations:
    Ban #1: 1 hour
    Ban #2: 1 day
    Ban #3: 3 days
    Ban #4: 1 week
    Ban #5: permanent
One ban stage will be removed for each month the user has demonstrated good behavior (no channel bans).
E.g. If a user who is banned for 1 week (Ban #4) does not violate any rules for one month, a new ban from the channel will again be 1 week.

Attempting to evade a ban can result in the user being given the next level of ban and/or in the user being reported to Rizon for ban-evasion.


Special Cases of Violation

In the event that a user of the channel acts in a borderline uncivil manner for extended periods of time despite warnings from the IRC modding team, that user will be issued a special warning.

If the user continues to act in a manner which is deigned hurtful or abusive by the moderating staff despite being within the nominal rules of the channel as listed above, the user will be treated as a special case and will be issued the next stage of banishment.


Ban-Related Assistance

MAL website: Please join the IRC channel and contact a forum moderator (denoted by a key symbol or & sign).

IRC channel: Please contact one of the IRC mods listed above, either via PM on MAL or via IRC by joining the Rizon server and messaging one (e.g. /msg KentaTC help).
