DC Stream Chat Rules

    Welcome to DeliciousCinnamonOfficial!
    Please keep the following points in mind as you use the built-in chat feature provided by Hitbox.

    It is forbidden for chat members to discuss by name any users that have been banned from chat.
    Anyone found breaking this rule will receive one (1) warning.
    Breaking this rule a second time will earn an immediate ban from the channel.
    Channel moderators and members of DC are excluded from this rule.

    If multiple moderators suspect you of being a banned user accessing a different account, you may be banned from the channel with or without warning. If this has happened to you by mistake, please refer to the "Wrongful Ban" section at the bottom of this post.

    About Requesting Songs...
    1. We reserve the right to skip your song if we don't like it. (We'll refund your points if we do.)
    2. Please only request one song at a time! Sometimes we only have time to play two or three songs. If one person requests two songs in a row, it doesn't give anyone else a chance to have their songs played.
    3. Please do not request music that is extremely vulgar in nature. Curse words are fine, but please refrain from anything overly violent/sexual, or including hate speech.
    4. Please do not request any song with the intent of disrespecting or upsetting another chat member.
    5. Do not request YouTube videos that are not songs. You will receive a warning for the first offense, a timeout for the second offense, and a ban for the third offense.
    6. For the sake of our self-esteem, we politely ask that you do not request music created by or in association with other gaming-focused YouTube channels (Ninja Sex Party, Game Grumps, etc).
    7. The request list is cleared at the end of every stream. Any songs not played will earn refunded points to the requester.

    General Chattin' Rules:
    • NO SPAMMING. Absolutely none.
    We define "spam" as a message that is one or more of the following:
    1. Is more than a few lines long AND is irrelevant to the current topic of conversation.
    2. Contains an excessive amount of non-alphanumeric characters (symbols just for decoration).
      Multi-symbol "Japanese-style" emotes, like Table Flip, are usually okay. (ノ ゜Д゜)ノ ︵ ┻━┻
    3. Repeats the previous message posted by the user.
    Don't do it. It's not cute. There are much better ways to entertain yourself -- like, for example, actually sticking around to watch the stream ;D

    We also request that you not advertise other channels in our chat.
    From time to time, we may plug our friends and affliliates, but we'd rather our viewers not do the same.
    Violators of this rule may have their text cleared without warning.
    In extreme cases or for repeat offenses, violators may be timed out.
    • Don't abuse DCrobot (Meowbot)! Sometimes DCrobot gets a little hiccuppy. Please avoid inputting commands if it's obviously having problems. Also, whenever you input a command, we request that you only use standard alpha-numeric characters -- the stuff you find on an english keyboard.
    • Please, no backseat gaming! Generally, we enjoy figuring things out on our own when we're playing games -- just like when we were kids, before we had the internet at our disposal. It's more fun for us that way! Please try not to "walk us through" a game unless we specifically ask for help -- and please, no spoilers!
    • Be nice! We’re all here to have a good time -- please don’t ruin it for anyone else! Friendly banter is A-OK, but please avoid posting anything that can be interpreted as a personal attack.
      Under no circumstance are you to post another chat member’s personal information (including their real name), even if they have said it in chat before.
      Violators of this rule may receive a warning and/or have their text cleared.
      In extreme cases or for repeat offenses, violators may be timed out or kicked from chat.
      Is someone in the chat not following this rule?
      If any chat user is behaving in a way that you believe to be inappropriate or not fitting the spirit of DC, please whisper to a moderator. We will keep your input completely anonymous, and do what we can to remedy the situation.
    • Use appropriate language! Yes, of course you can use cuss words -- but hate speech is unacceptable. This includes racial, homophobic, and/or transphobic slurs; rape jokes; and anything else chat moderators consider inappropriate.
      Violators of this rule may have their text cleared, or be timed out or kicked from chat.
      In extreme cases or for repeat offenses, violators may be banned from chat.
    • Keep the discussion on-topic! (Or at least try.) It’s preferred that the topic of chat remain DeliciousCinnamon-related -- current game, past videos & streams, stuff DC likes, etc.
      If the discussion veers off topic for too long, chat may be told to “reel it in.”
      Inappropriate content may be cleared from chat.
      Please keep personal one-on-one conversations confined to Whisper mode!
    • No Whining! It’s ridiculous that this even needs to be said! We want everyone to enjoy the stream, but we can’t please all of you all the time. If a decision is made that isn’t to your liking, please be a grown-up about it.
      Violators of this rule may be teased mercilessly for a short period of time.
    • Respect the moderators! The chat members with “M” or a lightning bolt next to their names have the power to hand out punishment. So if one of them asks you to stop doing something, it’s for good reason!
      The mods are also here to help! Any of the moderators here at DC will gladly answer if you have a question about the current game, the channel, or anything related to DeliciousCinnamon!
    Moderators can perform any of the following actions for any reason they deem necessary, but will never do so for no reason at all:
    • Clearing text removes all of a user’s previous messages. The user is free to continue posting immediately.
    • Timeout removes all of a user’s previous messages, and prevents them from posting in chat for two (2) minutes.
    • Kick removes all of a user's previous messages, and prevents them from posting in chat for ten (10) minutes.
    • Ban removes all of a user’s previous messages, and prevents them from posting in chat altogether.
    • IP ban removes all of a user’s previous messages, and prevents anyone from that IP address accessing the stream or posting in chat.
    Posting images and links in chat:
    • Do NOT post links to images directly from Facebook. They don't work, and they clutter up the chat. Please re-upload those images to image hosting sites. (Photobucket, puush, and even Tumblr will work just fine!)
    • Moderators and subscribers can post images directly in the chat.
      Non-subscribers may post direct links to (context-relevant, safe-for-work) images. It is up to the discretion of those who can do so to repost the image.
    • Moderators can post clickable links.
      Subscribers and followers may post links to (context-relevant, safe-for-work) outside sites.
    • Inappropriate content may be cleared from chat.
    If you feel you have been wrongfully or unfairly banned, please contact minimoose218@yahoo.com with your appeal to have your ban lifted.
    Creating or accessing a different hitbox account to post in our chat will be considered ban evasion, and will result in an immediate re-ban from the DeliciousCinnamonOfficial channel.
    Please do not use any other form of contact to appeal for the lifting of a ban from our channel. This includes our affiliated Hitbox.tv streamers.
  2. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    If anyone has any questions or suggestions for rules to add to the list, fire away :>
  3. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Edited list to include "no spamming" rule
  4. MiniMoosey Lukr Princess

    Just made some updates to MeowBot's !kick and !timeout commands so we will know the exact amount of time associated with each.

    - !timeout or !t will last 2 minutes.
    - !kick or !k will last 10 minutes.

    Note that if you use hitbox's built-in timeout button, it will last for 10 minutes. You can use !clear or !c to reset their timeout to 0, but keep in mind that if you use the built-in button you're actually using a kick.
  5. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Updated the master list to reflect the time lengths.

    (Not sure if making these posts is necessary. Just doing it as a CYA kind of thing I guess.)
  6. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Added a thing about keeping personal off-topic convos in whisper, also added another thing in the ban appeal section about not using any other means of contact
  7. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Couldn't sleep so I decided to add a section based on a few things Moose and I talked about concerning recent events.

    Please note that all non-mod-level chat members are included in the "no talking about banned users" rule. Those of us exempt from it will only bring the subject up if deemed absolutely necessary (so it's not like it's going to be "hur hur we're all gonna talk about the thing and you can't or you'll get banned lel")

    However, to those of you who have been around for a while, I encourage you to alert a mod (in a whisper message) if someone shows up in chat and their behavior raises any red flags. Our priority as DeliciousCinnamon channel moderators is to make sure you, our fans, our friends, feel comfortable in this community.
  8. MiniMoosey Lukr Princess

    We need to add a section here regarding song requests because I've already started seeing some abuse of the song request system.

    1) We reserve the right to skip your song if we don't like it. We'll refund your points if we do.
    2) Please do not request music that is extremely vulgar in nature. Again, curse words are fine but we don't want anything overly violent/sexual or including hate speech.
    3) Do not request YouTube videos that are not songs. You will receive a warning the first time, a second violation will be a timeout, and a third is a ban.
    4) For the sake of our self-esteem, we politely ask that you do not request music created by or in association with other gaming-focused YouTube channels (Example: Ninja Sex Party/Game Grumps)

    Possible future adedum to #1, if we start seeing people requesting a lot of the same things we dislike we will make a list here for artists or channels that are permanently not allowed.
  9. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Added those~
  10. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Added backseat gaming rule; made some minor layout changes to make it look more readable
  11. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    Updated stuff about song requests and DCrobot for ya.

    Also, note for members, I always comment when I update the list, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to watch this thread to make sure you always know about changes to the official rules.
    I know most of you guys behave yourselves, but I don't want any of you to get in trouble on a technicality.
  12. crashanomics SORRY NOTHING

    New rule: Don't post Facebook image links in chat.
    We've said it before, it's just official now.
  13. Kody Walker Hitbox Subscriber

    New rule for song requests: If the song you are requesting was created by another viewer/fan of DC, you must have their permission first to post it.
