Chatroom is now closed indefinetly.

The nature of the Chatroom is completely different from the forums, being dynamic and working at a much faster pace, moderation becomes very difficult. Therefore we ask users to moderate themselves while in the chatroom by following a few simple guidelines, only reporting something when another user or users are clearly acting outside of the Chatroom or Forum Guidelines.

If you are in any doubt contact the Moderator who will look into the matter and will act according to the Chat/Forum Guidelines.

We like to provide a safe and friendly environment for users to chat or discuss while using the Chatroom, any users who abuse the guidelines will not be allowed to particpate anymore.
