Lengthy diatribes. No lengthy diatribes.
Flaming. We don't allow flaming. Flaming means insulting other members of the chatroom/forums. Be nice at all times. We try hard to keep things very friendly here. No flaming of any kind for any reason, period. Trying to induce others to flame (trolling) is a no-no too. If you feel you were flamed in chat, please inform the ops in private. DO NOT respond to the person who flamed you in kind. That will only escalate the situation and get yourself in trouble.
Profanity. The F-word, S-word and other swear words are discouraged and in many occasions not tolerated at all. If a staff member deems your swearing excessive or used in an inappropriate context, you will be warned, kicked, or in some cases banned. This is not up for debate, and if you want to play it safe, don't swear at all.
Harassment. Like flaming and other antagonistic behaviors, harassment in all of it's forms will not be tolerated at Eyes on Final Fantasy. Harassment is defined as contact (or attention, eg. mentioning of the member in posts) that is expressly and directly known to be unwanted by the receiving party. This contact could take place anywhere on the Eyes on Final Fantasy site, forums, chatroom or via emails sent using Eyes on Final Fantasy. Eyes on Final Fantasy's staff do not take responsibility for any harassment taking place outside of these areas (this includes private chat outside of the #eoff chatroom), although we can offer guidance in such situations.
We expect all of our members to resolve conflicts as adults. Talk it out, be reasonable, find a compromise. If this is impossible, if you dislike a person, or if you do not wish to contact that person or see their posts, please use the ignore feature. If the offending member does not leave you alone when asked or subverts your efforts to not be in contact with them and you have made an effort to make your wishes clear, then you should contact a member of EoFF staff.

Advertising. If you came here just to advertise, don't waste your time. Anything viewed by the staff as blatant advertising will result in a warn, kick or ban.
Spamming. If you come into chat and constantly type out things that are completely nonsensical and disrupt the flow of the chatroom entirely, it will be considered spam. This can result in a warn, kick or ban.
Impersonation. Do not impersonate other members of Eyes on Final Fantasy by using their nickname. Likewise, do not impersonate staff by warning people as if you are staff.
External Links. Linking to pornography will lead to a ban. Linking to other crude material may lead to a warn, kick or ban.
Crude Discussion. Discussion of a nature deemed by a staff member to be inappropriate for the chatroom may lead to a warn, kick or ban.
Ruining The Groove. If your general attitude is agreed by a number of staff to be disruptive to the atmosphere of the chatroom, you may be warned, kicked or banned.
Private Chat. Unfortunately not all staff have authority over what is said in private chat. If you have any issues regarding someone who his bugging you via private chat, it is suggested that you ignore them using the ignore feature. If they find a way to harass you further, please contact an IRCop. These are people who moderate the server. IRCops include Roogle, Aexoden, rubah and Arche.
Kicking. Kicking can, on occasion, be used as a way to warn members. It can also be used as a joke on occasion. Consider it a reminder of the rules and if you are following all the rules and do not receive any kind of warning, that it is a joke. If you get kicked repeatedly and do not feel it was justified, please contact a member of the EoFF staff.
Banning. Bans will last for a length of time deemed appropriate by the staff. Some bans may last minutes, some hours, some days, some indefinitely.
