the rules for the #mahq IRC channel. They are subject to change
at any moment so if you are kicked or banned please read them
again. You may use them as a reference if you wish to bring into
question the enforcement of a rule upon yourself or another chatter.

i. No fserves (file servers).

The following rules concern the use of language in the channel:
i. Please speak English only. There are people that come into
this channel from all over the world, and because English might be
their second or third language, please refrain from making fun
of people whose English skills are not as good as your own.
ii. Cussing is allowed as long as it isn't excessive and directed
at an individual or group in an offensive or derogatory manner.
iii. Racial slurs are prohibited.
Channel conversations should pertain to subjects related to anime,
preferably mecha anime. If the conversation strays away from anime
and mecha this shouldn't be a problem but the following topics
should never be discussed unless they pertain to anime and mecha;
they are too controversial and are likely to cause flaming:
iii. Gender Roles
iv. Nationalism (i.e. my country is better then your country)
If you wish to converse about these subjects there are other channels
that might accommodate your needs.
Roleplaying, or "rping", is discouraged but not prohibited
as long as it doesn't interfere with legitimate conversation.
Scripts are discouraged but not prohibited as long as they do
not display annoying characteristics such as colors, underlining,
bold type and other things that deviate from normal text type.
ASCII art is prohibited as it is not only annoying but floods
the channel as well.
The following acts will result in an automatic ban from the channel:
i. Flooding (if you do it on accident that is ok but you will
iii. Being banned from the MAHQ forum
v. Being a Jackass
Enforcement and Channel Operators
The channel rules will be enforced at the discrepancy of the channel
operators present. If you feel that a rule was not enforced when
it should have been or that a rule has been enforced upon yourself
unjustly then send a private message to an operator that is currently
present or e-mail either Corben or Chris. If you become bothersome
about such things you will be either ignored or expelled from
the channel, so make sure that you have good reason to do so.
If you wish to become an operator, DO NOT ASK TO BE AN OPERATOR.
People that are candidates for being a channel operator are people
that are well knowledged about mecha and can contribute to the
channel in a meaningful manner. If we want you to be an operator
we will ask you.
