The following is the chat policy for the chatroom at Encyclopedia SpongeBobia.

Chat policy

  • A. General
  • 1. All ESB policies apply in the chat room.
  • 2. No spamming. This includes blank messages and typing gibberish.
  • 3. No trolling. Such violation results in an immediate ban.
  • 4. No profanity (except for the words "damn" and "hell," which are allowed if they are used in context and not against another user)
  • 5. Be respectful toward all users, their views, and their opinions. Do not discriminate or harrass anyone.
  • 6. Do not pose as a chat moderator or administrator if you are not.
  • 7. Do not post anything inappropriate or links to inappropriate sites. This includes links content not suitable for children under the age of 13. The chatroom is to remain clean.
  • 8. Do not ask users for personal information. (age, phone numbers, addresses, ASL (age/sex/location), etc.)
  • 9. If you are going to exchange social networking information, do it in a private message (such as Skype, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc.).
  • 10. Do not argue or get into a heated debate. Friendly, civil debates are allowed.
  • B. Underage users
  • 1. It is against Wikia policy for a person under the age of 13 to use Wikia. It is against ESB policy for persons under the age of 13 to reveal their age.
  • 2. Any users who is underaged or claims to be underaged will not be blocked or banned.
  • 3. All underaged users will be dealt with by Wikia Staff, not by ESB staff.
  • C. Moderators
  • 1. All administrators and bureaucrats are chat moderators. A selected few chatters are granted chat moderator status because they are active in chat and trusted to keep the peace.
  • 2. Do not kick or ban users for no reason.
  • 3. Any abuse of chat moderator powers will result in immediate demotion. Any continued abuse may result in a block.
  • 4. Chat moderators have no jurisdiction over what happens in a private message. If someone bothers you, ignore them. There is no definite way to prove what is in a private message.
  • 5. There is a hierarchy in the chatroom. Chat Moderators are outranked by Administrators, and Admistrators are outranked by Bureaucrats. Therefore, if a user is breaking a rule in chat, the users highest in command will deal with them. If they are unresponsive, the responsibility goes down the chain of hierarchy.
  • 6. Anyone seeking promotion to chat moderator must make the request on this page.
  • D. Reporting
  • 1. If you see anything in the chatroom that is a violation of any policies, please report it.
  • 2. You can report it to the following places:
