2. No excessive repeating or flooding of a game. Post your notice and wait about 30 lines. Please set the master game server in XBConnect with your room unlocked so others will see your game on the list.

3. No Advertising of Non XBox related material. This includes but is not limited too, Mod chips, pornography, Outwar, Warez, and FTP clients. Advertising clan sites is permitted but not to be excessively repeated. Once every 30-45 minutes is permitted.

4. No racial remarks or excessive language in the channel, freedom is good. Have the respect for ones culture and rights. Keep in mind this is a private service, and you are asked to follow the rules as a member. This includes nicks with cuss words or masking cuss words. This includes discussion about illegal drugs and substance abuse. Even though we have a filter, use respectable language, do not mask cuss words to evade the filters, if you can't speak with respect, don't speak at all.

5. No consistent nick changes or excessive nick lengths. Nicknames can be original but there is no need for a nick to have useless characters to get the user noticed. Do not change your nicks to one similar to an XBConnect operator. You should not impersonate an XBC Operator for any reason. Impersonation of a XBC Operator can get you banned without notice.

6. No attempts at channel takeovers. You will be banned on the first attempt. A report will be filed with your ISP.

7. No harassing of channel operators. They are there for a reason. They will give you respect if you give it to them. Channel operators can be rather busy at times, so please do not get upset if they cannot answer your questions right away. In the mean time read the FAQ page and the help file to gain more knowledge of your problem.

8. Do not ask for ops. This includes asking for sponsors. Operators are picked by their behavior and are trained in a program. Email Splitboxer with an application if you are a mature responsible person who can be fair to all users, has XBC troubleshooting knowledge and basic networking experience.
