Are you a brand new member?
When you first register for an account here on AbaddonCity.com we ask that your first account name (being your OOC account) closely resembles your Cbox name (if you have one/want one).



QUICK SIGN UP FOR: THE CHATBOX
  • ► Click "Set Name"

    ► Create a Username & Password
    (Do not use the 'temporary' name option, believe me it will give you a hard time every chance it gets!)

    ► Click "Sign Up"

    ► You do not need to wait for any sort of confirmation, after you have completed the quick & easy steps listed above, you are officially signed up.





CHATBOX RULES
  • ► No negativity or you're out.

    ► No drama or you're out. 

    ► Respect the moderators and what they ask of you in the Cbox.  If they ask you to change the subject please do so or you may be banned from the Cbox and/or AbaddonCity.com entirely.  (Temporarily or permanently, depending on the situation.)

    ► We are a relaxed role playing environment.  Do not use our Cbox to ask other members to reply to you quicker.  You may 'tag' people in the Cbox (meaning you may tell them you just posted a reply for them to an IC thread you're both involved in)  but leave it at that - do not insist they tag you back!  Pestering members to reply quicker is against the rules however if it has been several days you are welcome to send them a polite reminder in PM but do not be persistent.

    ► If you are going to use our Cbox you must always be courteous.  Ensure everyone feels welcome in the conversations and are able to participate in the conversation you have there whether they be guests or members, new or old.  Greet people when they say hi, help out by pointing people in the right direction if they have questions and never treat someone in a disrespectful manner.

    ► There are a few topics that are hot button issues with people and since we have strong opinions, as well as people from different countries and walls of like let's keep that in mind.
    Absolutely NO political talk. If you belong to one party or another, that's great. Everyone keep it to themselves. Be proud in private as politics is just sure to cause an issue anywhere you go and can less to quick negativity.

    ► We are an accepting and inclusive community. We have people from all walks of life. Do not publicly be negative towards members or guests for their gender, sexual orientation, or religious views. Everyone is entitled to them or to agree or disagree with these matters as is their right, if you don't agree with someone and a remark is rude or hateful then keep it out of the box.

    ►Yes, we are a Rated R content site but be wary of your behavior in the Cbox and try not to get carried away.  The Cbox is visible to guests at all hours and while good humored fun is allowed we don't want to make anyone uncomfortable. If you would't make the comment at work then don't make it in the cbox. Remember that not everyone may have the same sense of humor you do and so long as you use our Cbox you are required to take their feelings into consideration.

    ► No IC Chatting in the OC Box. Please keep any IC Chatting to a bare minimum. One or two comments is fine but that should be all. If you would like to IC Chat take it to a private.

    ► Please no complaining about your IRL (in real life) issues in the Cbox. Why not?  Read on to the next point..

    ►Our chatbox is a place to have fun, to get to know our fellow Rpers, have casual conversation, ask questions and find plots.  If you are frustrated or have problems and you want to get them off your chest do so in private with a friend, do not put it somewhere public such as the Cbox. Simply saying you had a bad day is acceptable or that you are tired. Try not to launch into a depressing life story publicly.

    IMPORTANT:  Please note that talks about suicide ('I should just go shoot myself', I should just kill myself, etc), complaints that 'no one wants to Rp with me anyway', outcries for attention such as 'I think I'm just going to quit my character, no one likes her', calling people out, becoming aggressive because you find something that was said as offensive(we all have different opinions), and anything related to these examples should be left out of the Cbox.  If you have an urge to type it go take a breather and come back to us when your head is on straight otherwise you will receive a temporary, if not permanent, ban from the Chatbox without any further warning than this statement right here.

    If someone on the Cbox has upset you do not retaliate by responding to them in there.  Instead PM an admin with a copy/paste of the situation or better yet, a screenshot, and we will handle it discreetly.  All complaints remain anonymous.


    *Image rules apply for the Cbox too, including videos!  You will be suspended/banned from the Cbox if you violate these rules.  No rated R images/videos!





WE SUGGEST:
Many people report being spammed from unknown perverts via chatango private messages after they sign up to the chatbox.  To fix this:
  • ► Post something such as a friendly hello in to the chatbox.. then click on the square avatar location beside your chatname after it pops up in the live chat (or click on your own name in the " # people here now" list. ) Then move on to the next step below.

    ► A page will load for chatango. There will be three tab options on the top right hand corner.  Go into "Account" then "Settings"   and UNCHECK "Allow anons to message me" and "Show my profile in Meet People". There is also a block feature at the very bottom of chat when someone has messaged you who isn't on your friend list. All this will immediately put an end to any spamming. :)

USING THE IC CHATBOX
  • ► Log into one of your character accounts on site. This can be done through the drop down mini to the top right of the site.

    ►  Refresh the stream to view new posts. This shout box does not auto populate.

    ► Keep the chat In-Character Only. No OOC accounts or conversations to be used.

    ► No Mature Content in this Cbox. This goes for X and Explicit R as well. This chatbox is a place for everyone to have some quick one off IC Chat time if they would like. If you want to make anything explicit for any reason take it to a thread where you can clearly mark the thread for content that other people may not want to view.  If people start breaking this rule the Cbox will be taken back down and will not come back.

    ► No negativity or you're out. No drama or you're out. We are adults so keep the interactions free of OOC drama. If you can't play nicely with someone else in the regular Cbox or in thread then DO NOT use the IC Cbox to bring OOC drama to an IC situation. If this is found to be happening you will be banned from the Box.

    ► Respect the moderators and what they ask of you in the IC Cbox.  If they ask you to change the subject please do so or you may be banned from the Cbox and/or AbaddonCity.com entirely.  (Temporarily or permanently, depending on the situation.)

    ► We are a relaxed role playing environment.  Do not use our IC Cbox to try to force characters to do something they would not normally do. Keep it relaxed and fun for the characters to enjoy each other company. 

    ► If you are going to use our IC Cbox you must always be courteous to your fellow RPers.  Ensure everyone feels welcome in the conversations and nothing that should be locked away behind a M,R,X tag is visible so that everyone is able to participate in the conversations there no matter who they are. Always be mindful of other people and do not directly ignore them. Include those around you and never treat someone in a disrespectful manner. If your character can not play nicely with the general public then leave them out of it.

    ►Yes, we are a Rated R content site but be wary of your behavior in the IC Cbox and try not to get carried away.  The IC Cbox is not able to be restricted for content behind an R, X, or M tag, and while good humored fun is allowed we don't want to make anyone uncomfortable with things that would need to be flagged in any normal thread. Keep the IC chat away from the above mentioned tags. IF we can't handle this as adults the IC Chatbox will be removed. One bad apple can ruin this for everyone. If you can't play nicely with another person's character then don't play with them at all. Remember that not everyone may have the same sense of humor you do and so long as you use our IC Cbox you are required to take their feelings into consideration. If your character is an extremely abrasive, offensive type don't bring them into the box just to cause trouble. It ruins everyone's fun.

    ► Please no complaining about your IRL (in real life) issues in the IC Cbox. Why not?  Read on to the next point..

    ►Our IC chatbox is a place to have fun, to test the waters between characters before a thread is made perhaps, and find plots.  If you are frustrated or have problems do not put it into the IC Cbox. This is strictly for character concepts NOT anything else. .

    If someone on the Cbox has upset you do not retaliate by responding to them in there.  Instead PM an admin with a copy/paste of the situation or better yet, a screenshot, and we will handle it discreetly.  All complaints remain anonymous. Please bare in mind that these conversations are from CHARACTER OPINIONS and not the opinions of the writer. Not all characters mesh well but in no means does this mean you should retaliate or create drama with a Member over what a Character's opinion is.


    *Image rules apply for the IC Cbox too, including videos!  You will be suspended/banned from the Cbox if you violate these rules.  No rated R images/videos!
