The Call of Duty Wiki Chat is a real-time chat utilizing the chat program known as Discord, in which users are able to chat and talk in a friendly and open environment. Another place in which users are able to chat in a real-time environment is IRC.
To access the chat, please click the "Connect" button on the sidebar or by clicking this link.
In order to maintain an enjoyable atmosphere, there are some rules which must be abided by.
- All user related policies on this wiki must be abided to on the IRC channel or the chat, particularly the User Treatment Policy.
- No spamming. Something will be considered spam if it is repeated several times. Also, if a user is entering random and meaningless stuff, that is also considered spam.
- No impersonation of other users - this creates confusion, and is also fraud.
- No user shall post or discuss pornographic, sexual or "shock" links of any kind, except in specified channels.
- No abusive actions - bullying or abusive actions will not be tolerated on the Chat.
- No personal information about others without their direct consent.
- It is recommended you do not post personal information about yourself. As soon as you do, you are liable for the damage you will potentially cause yourself.
- Users blocked from the wiki are also blocked from using the Chat until their block is over.
- Evading a ban on chat with another account is not allowed. It's not the account that is banned, it is the person.
- Keep swearing to a minimum, not everyone agrees with this kind of language. Please do not swear excessively.
- Posting spoilers is not allowed and will not be tolerated, except in specified channels.
- English is the preferred language in the chat, as this Wiki is the English Call of Duty Wiki. If you use a foreign language, you will most likely be asked to use English. Please do so when asked.
- Do not use chat to advertise. This includes (but not limited to) linking wikis to recruit new editors, linking a YouTube channel for the purpose of gaining subscribers or trying to recruit for a clan.
- "Joke" bans are not allowed under any circumstances.
- It is not a Roleplaying chat, and as such users will be asked to stop if it gets out of hand.
Breaking these rules can result in a ban from chat, and in severe cases a ban on the wiki and chat will be issued.
All administrators have moderator status, and users can be given moderator status if need be.
Active Discord moderators
Semi-active Discord moderators
Please note that requests to become a Discord mod are on the whole ignored. Suitable candidates will be approached and asked if they would like to be a chat moderator, and this will only happen if another chat moderator is necessary.
Pointers for moderators, both non-admin and admin
- Be nice. Don't be a dick to someone you're about to ban.
- Always issue an initial warning before you kickban. (does not apply to someone spamming/posting a porn link/shock link/personal info without consent)
- Always notify someone who has been banned telling them why they have been banned using Template:Banned if they have a confirmed Wikia account.
- If you wish to file any complaint about chat, please take it up with any admin or chat moderator. This does not cover chat policies, this should be done in the War Room.
- Don't be scared to ask for help with a situation. We're all here to help each other.
- For suspected or known sockpuppetry, please notify an active check user, who will then perform a check and issue bans where necessary.
- Work with other chat moderators. If you disagree with something another chat moderator does, tell them respectfully and do not make an argument about it.
- If for whatever reason you are uncomfortable with a situation and do not wish to deal with it, please notify another chat moderator who will sort it out.
- If assistance is required, check COD:IRC to see if there is an administrator around on the IRC channel who may be able to help.
When a ban has been issued, please add it to this list.
A.K.A. IRC. All rules still apply, but IRC specific rules can be seen here. Like Chat, everyone is free to use IRC at any time, and if Chat is offline, then please feel free to join in the IRC chat below.
