Online Bingo Etiquette
The feature of chatting online is one of the best aspects of playing online bingo. It is a virtual playground where other people can meet with other people from different countries and win a little cash on the side as well.
In all games online, there are always a few rules that players must adhere to for the sake of all players online. The rules help keep the area manageable else it would be chaotic. Players are expected to act with a sense of decorum when engaging in a chat session. The rules are normally flexible and may differ from one room to another.
Using the keyboard is the only way to communicate in the rooms. There are no web cams nor voice overs to be heard. It a strict textual conversation. Players are advised to avoid using the CAPS lock when conversing. It is tantamount to screaming at your chat partner and is one way to alienate oneself in the chat room. No matter what the circumstances are, one should avoid using the CAPS lock.
Players are advised to pay heed to what the CM (chat moderators) have to say on the chat room. They are the ones that moderate or watch the chat rooms so that no fights or disputes arise. They are also there to chat with although their job is mainly to monitor. CM's are always very nice and accommodating to a certain extent and have the authority to kick or boot any chatter who is being rude.
Respect is a key element in online chatting. Once in a chat room, all players should follow and respect their decisions. Players should realize that other people may be in the chatroom and some of them may not have the same tolerance level as others nor share the same beliefs and values as others. Players must be careful not to offend any one in the chatroom. Normally before one enters a chatroom or immediately there of, the moderator welcomes the newcomer and displays the topic for the day(if any) and some things to watch out for. Some players may opt to go to another room to avoid a CM they don't like but should remember that a CM may be hosting over several rooms, not just one.
Members join the chat forum or room to have fun and that is what should be the main theme of all chat rooms. Players are strictly advised not to make any references to racial, ethnic or gender/sexual comments or insinuations. Some CM's are a bit lax on first time offenders but may easily boot the person out on the first offense.
Chatrooms are an excellent way to meet other people but the thing to remember is that people go online for many reasons and many want to have good, clean fun. If players are looking for a different type of fun, then they can readily find other adult sites that can cater to their needs. Online Bingo char rooms demand and maintain a good quality rating for their patrons.
