hello to all my fellow TBI Survivors and familey members! this chat room was designed for people that have recived a tbi or that has a familey member with a
Everyone’s working hard on this new TBIChat Room so please greet new people when they enter a room.
Personal information should not be given out in the TBI there is no way to tell who is really typing on that other end. Each person in the Chat Room assumes all risks of sharing personal info.
Here are some basic chat room rules of proper etiquette that will help your chat room experiences be more pleasant for you as well as the others in the room.
Rule Number One- This is probably the most important rule. Do not verbally abuse, attack, embarrass, or threaten anyone else in the chat room, no matter what they might say to you. You are bound to find some troublemakers on the Internet. But, the best way to deal with them is to just ignore them or simply leave the room.
Rule Number Two- Do not use obscene, offensive, or sexually explicit language. You don’t need to use this kind of language in order to speak to someone or to get your point across to others.
Rule Number Three- Never type your messages in by using all capital letters. On the Internet, this is considered to be screaming or yelling at another person, and, of course, this is nothing short of rude. If you want to *emphasize* a word or phrase, simply type an asterisk in before and then directly after your word or phrase. This is a widely recognized way to get your point across without being rude.
Rule Number Four- When you are entering a chat room, you should always greet everyone whether you know them or not. Be sure to wait until there is a lull in the conversation already in progress, though. Don’t interrupt. And, when someone else enters the room, you should make it a point to at least recognize their presence and greet them with a friendly “Hi (their screen name)!”
Rule Number Five- Don’t speak unless you know what the conversation is about first. And, in speaking while in a chat room, don’t type in long, detailed messages that will take allot of time and space. Also, never interrupt someone else. Be patient; you will get your chance to speak.
By following these rules, your chat room experiences can be positive ones. You can make new friends and connect with others who share your same interests.
