Rules across services

These rules apply to all Volatile services. They exist in an effort to provide the best service for all our users.

  1. Do not use Volatile services for unlawful activity. See specific services for what jurisdiction they fall under, but in general you must comply with at least United States law.
  2. Do not use the services for activity that is against hosting providers' acceptable-use policies. Again, check the individual services to see where they are hosted.
  3. Do not use the services to transmit SPAM.
  4. Do not degrade the services for others. We don't want to get in trouble because of your actions.
  5. Denial of service, exploitation of services, penetration testing, or anything of the like is not permitted. If you find a security vulnerability or bug, please contact us privately.
  6. You must be eighteen years of age or older to utilise Volatile services.

See complete terms for additional information.

Other than that, enjoy.

Rules in on-topic chats

These rules apply to on-topic community channels, such as Volatile MUC.

  1. The Rules across services above apply to the community chat as well.
  2. Allow on-topic discussion to take place. There are plenty of places for extended social or off-topic chat, including private messages. Keep the community-oriented chatrooms clear of any noise.
  3. Be mature. You are expected to maintain appropriate behaviour in a topical environment. If you are unsure what this entails, please don't hesitate to ask.
  4. Channel moderators have full jurisdiction over the community chat: their word is law. If you feel that a moderator was unjust toward you, contact us and we can look into it. Do not evade bans, because it will not work in your favour; it will only escalate the matter.

We strive to maintain a reasonable environment for real-time discussion, deliberation, and community questions – topics that don't always fit that well in a private E-mail or a public newsgroup. Please do not abuse this venue of communication.
