No asking/begging for invites - Top
No links to other Porn sites in the Chat - Top
No aggressive behavior or flaming in the chat rooms - Top
No language other than English in the general chat rooms (except for those which are especially marked otherwise) - Top
On our site the general language is English
So it is in our general chat room #gaytorrent.ru
All ops on the site speak/understand English, so you can get help and support in this language whenever an operator is available.
We also provide support in the German language, please join #deutsch.
We can create chat rooms for other languages too if there is demand for support in that language and there is an operator available for this support language.
No systematic foul language - Top
Most likely time for a quick(er) answer: 4-11pm CET (10am-5pm EST) on weekdays, almost 24/7 on weekends - Top
We try to set up a lot of mods so that the chat rooms are manned with ops 24/7.
Alas due to our limited manpower in the mod-/op-department we are not always able to do so. Please think about the facts:
All our mods are volunteers who do their tasks in their spare time, mod work isn't a paid job; all of our mods are real people that have a life too, as human beings, they have to sleep once in a while, as well as most of them are used to having a meal at least once a day (some of them even want to go on vacation).
Come in, say hello or ask your questions and WAIT - Top
If you enter a chat room just say hello or some other greeting to the people, which already are in that chat room (as you would do when you enter another room as the polite guy you are.
If the chat room is empty (no other users are there):
If you have a question for an operator, just ask your question.
Then please wait (but not only 5 seconds, have a bit patience).
Most of the time, the operators (which are moderators on gaytorrent.ru too) are working on the site and have a chat window open at the same time. If you type something, the ops get a hint there is activity in the chat and finish what they are doing at that time and come into the chat as soon as possible.
Depending on their actual task that may take a minute or two. Please give them a bit of time too, so they can fully concentrate on the chat and your problem.
This way you and the op can be pleased.
Never private an op, ask first - Top
In IRC there is also the possibility to have a private one on one chat. That is a good place to chat with an op about things you do not want discuss publicly, like account details.
But please keep in mind: Don't do that, until the op has given you permission to do so, else you will be ignored (at least), kicked, or even banned and your questions will never be answered in the chat.
Don't be scared when someone greets you - Top
Sometimes an op is actually in a chat room, when you enter. He'll then see you enter and greet you (hi
Not only say rehi but ask your question or, if you're up to some chit-chat, start the chat. Don't get scared by his greeting and quit. Even if you just want to have a look, just say so before you quit the chat.
This way you help us ops to maintain our chores as well as giving support in the chat.
