How do we help keep Vinesauce a Fun place?

The easiest way to help out is to follow the above rules. Anyone who does not adhere to the rules will receive anywhere from a warning to a permanent ban depending on the severity of the infraction and/or number of infractions. Mods have the final say.  If you have further questions please use the whisper command “/w username message” to reach out to us and discuss it with us. Please be civil with us as we will be civil with you.

Etiquette 

Vinesauce is a Video Game chatroom, as such it is not a good place to fight your internet battles. The following is considered bad form to talk about:

Unban

If you feel you were banned unfairly or just want a second shot, you can email vinesauceunban@gmail.com. Be honest about why you were banned and there's a higher chance of an unban. If you are amicable instead of argumentative there is an even higher chance. Please do not take Unban requests to the forum or chat. You can also directly message a moderator. Feel free to reach out to us for general questions as well.

We understand the reflex reaction is to badmouth the mods upon being banned. Just keep in mind though, the mods are only doing their job and are trying to keep some semblance of sanity to the chat.
