By posting in the chat box on Candyland Couture, you are agreeing to several things. First off, you must NEVER, EVER INSULT SOMEONE OR ANOTHER SITE in the chat box. This can be defined as calling someone out, talking behind someone’s back, passive aggressive behavior towards an individual, cussing, or any other rude behavior. This isn’t high school; we aren’t children. If you have a problem with someone, contact a Head Staff Team Member immediately to avoid publicly humiliating both yourself and the other party. When filing a report regarding an issue in the chatbox, please make sure to TAKE SCREENSHOTS. This is more reliable than “logs” as we are able to physically see evidence before it is removed and/or changed/reworded/modified. Taking these steps will allow us to help you with your problem, but in the event that nothing can be done, simply take our advice and avoid the individual. You do not have to talk to anyone that you do not want to.
We ask that you keep all in depth chats about REQUESTS, SUPPORT/HELP, CRITIQUES, and FEEDBACK to their appropriate boards and not the chatbox itself. This is simply to be polite to guests and/or members that may not want to read and/or hear about it, as well as open room for fun chats, as well as questions. All discussions about the above should be kept to threads in their respective boards, personal messages, or even forms of instant messenger. You are, however, allowed to ask quick questions that could be easily answered in the chatbox, as well as link to your work to show it off.
The above further leads to the issue of OUTSIDE LINKING. Advertising in the chatbox is not allowed. Keep all advertisements to the advertising forum. However, not all cases of outside linking are considered advertising. Outside linking is allowed if you are showing off a graphic, code, skin, or writing piece. Common sense should enable you to differentiate between advertising and outside linking, but if you are unsure, please make sure to ask a Community Moderator or Head Staffer. Please keep in mind that if your outside link includes a question regarding help, it might be better suited to become a thread in one of our support boards. Please keep in mind that we also do not appreciate people having the bad habit of WHORING THEIR WORK out in the chatbox. What does this mean? This is popping into the chatbox and slapping a link to a graphic, code, or piece of writing without so much as a "Hey, guys. Want to see this thing I made?" before hand. It interrupts conversations, makes you look narcissistic, and can be off-putting to both guests and members alike. We have had MANY complaints and reports sent to us regarding people doing this. It is, however, okay to mention that you made something new and if someone asks "ooh, can I see?" then it is perfectly acceptable for you to then link your work. It is when people randomly post links without leading into it that we find rude. If a staff member reminds you of this rule and asks you not to do it again, do not argue with them; they are simply doing their job.
We also ask that you do not DISCUSS SECURITY ISSUES in the chatbox. Security issues are case sensitive and meant to be a private discussion between the Head Staff and the people involved. They are not meant to be a public spectacle where parties involved could be publicly incriminated and/or embarrassed. Keep it to personal messages, and always ensure that you are addressing one of the above mods, as they are the ones who directly deal with those types of issues.
Furthermore, we have a special message to MODERATORS/ADMINISTRATORS OF OTHER SITES that come to our chatbox asking questions. If you are coming to Candyland with a question and/or concern about your/our advertisement or affiliation, the place to inquire about that is NOT the chatbox. If you have an account, we ask that you please shoot a message to the appropriate Moderator and/or a Head Staff Member. If you do not have an account, we have two other options. You may quickly register an account so that you have access to messaging our staff team, or you may send us an email at CANDYLANDCOUTURESTAFF@GMAIL.COM so that you may contact us in private. If you are unwilling to do either of these two options, it shows us that you do not consider it a big enough issue to resolve it. Do NOT post in the chatbox about it; any slanderous or rude comments regarding our rules on this subject will result in the immediate banning of the IP used in the posting.
When a Mod and/or Admin addresses you in the chatbox, especially if they are asking that you refrain from doing something, LISTEN TO THEM. They are ensuring that our rules are being abided by, and failure to adhere to their warnings/instructions will result in a possible ban from the chatbox, as it is seen as a blatant show of disrespect towards our rules and our staff team.
