ComputerHope Chat

As you may have noticed, ComputerHope now has a new Social Help Chat.
http://www.computerhope.com/chat.htm

Our ComputerHope Chat was primarily made and implemented to our forum as a social chat for our ComputerHope Members to 'hang out' and to talk off-topic.
However, It has also been created as a help channel where guests (or existing users) can sign on and ask for help or just a computer question (providing there is someone online to answer).
The accepted protocol is to pause general chatting when a request for help is made. We want to be courteous to all who visit the chat channel.
Please remember that we aren't all online 24/7, we don't know everything, and we only answer in English. Therefore, our channel is an English-Only channel.
We will always try to assist but if we can't, there are always the forums.

HopeBot
If you have used the chat, you may have noticed a user under the name of Hopebot.
He is not a real person, but an information directory.
If you need to know the definition of something, simply type:
"Define TERM" (without the quotes)

For example:
Quote from: Chat
<Carbon>   Define Chat
<HopeBot>   Carbon: Try looking at: http://www.computerhope.com/jargon/c/chat.htm

ComputerHope Chat Rules

  • Please no swearing in the chat. If HopeBot catches you swearing 3 times, you will be booted from the chat, possibly banned.
    Note: Capital letters are the same. Repeated offenses will get you booted from the chat.
  • Don't give away any personal information and details.
  • Don't open Private Message Windows without permission.
  • No profanity or discrimination of any kind.
  • Please don't flame other chat members. Try to keep a friendly atmosphere and be patient with whoever is helping you. We are all volunteers here and are not paid to help you.
  • Do not ask for help or assist in illegal activities
  • Spamming is NOT tolerated. Do not cc in the chat, or waste our time with useless questions or fooling around.
    Also, please refrain from asking any personal questions such as 'What is your name?' or 'Where do you live?'.
    Although you may think it's fine to ask such questions, others may not feel comfortable answering them publicly.
  • No advertising other websites, services or companies unless it is being used to help answer someone's question.
  • Remember, our Forums Rules still apply here.: http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,58736.0.html.

To enforce these rules, if you see anyone doing any of the above and there are no OPs online, please PM one of our Staff Members:
