How bans work

You could get a warning or a ban (ranging from 5 minutes to 1 month) if you break the rules listed above. The moderator picks the appropriate response based on the violation and previous ban history. Warnings or short bans are typically issued for first-time or small violations. Each consecutive violation will likely result in a longer ban period until it reaches 1 week and then 1 month. These two measures are required to be taken before a user is banned permanently. Duplicate accounts and accounts used for spamming and malware are an exception – they are permanently banned right away.

Public Chat & Comments

  1. Respect other members even if you disagree, don´t be unnecessarily confrontational.
  2. Stay away from non-trading chatter in other channels except #general.
  3. Don’t monopolize or dominate the conversation.
  4. No profanity or offensive language.
  5. No layering of post, text walls, emoji walls, chart walls or ALL CAPS.
  6. Don’t openly argue with moderators or criticise moderation in general – send them a private message if you disagree with something.
  7. Don’t chart-spam (posting the same chart over and over again without any changes).
