1. Use common sense and don’t do questionable things. If you have any doubt over whether your topic, question, advice, or comment is acceptable, feel free to speak to any operator or staff member on the IRC channel or join #tripsit.me to grab the attention of everyone available.

Do '''not''' ask for money, BTC, or users to send you drugs (this includes trades for BTC -- including "legal" trades.) Keep in mind sarcasm is hard to tell on the internet.

= Underage users =  
+
=Impersonating LEO=
 +
Impersonating an officer of the law, such as having a nickname that implies you are a LEO, will first result in a warning.  If the nick is not changed the user will be kicked. Repeated attempts to join with the same name will result in a  temporary or permanent ban.
  
1). While TripSit welcomes users and communities from all ends of the spectrum, our network is not designed for nor aimed at children - in accordance with the United States government and the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, individuals under the age of 13 are not permitted to browse TripSit nor create user accounts.
+
=Attitude=
 +
We are a network devoted to harm reduction and positivity.
 +
Keep It Positive People (KIPP).
 +
No rude, mean, or judgmental language or discussion.
 +
This includes racial slurs, homophobia, and all other prejudice against any person or group of people.
 +
Do not insult other users; take heated arguments to private chat.
 +
Posting personal information about channel members, or doxing, is grounds for a permanent network ban. Trying to collect personal info of users is dealt with in the same manner.
  
2). We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before logging on, and to refrain from posting any information about themselves, personal or otherwise, on the network.  
+
=#tripsit=
 +
This channel is for people currently under the influence of drugs and those there to sit them.
 +
This channel should always be ready to help fellow members.
 +
Please take any drug discussion, arguments or otherwise distracting chatter to #drugs instead.
 +
Only light-hearted and positive conversation here: We all know how easily a trip can turn bad just by a simple thought.
 +
Anyone caught being facetious will be warned and then banned if need be.
 +
Rules are STRICTLY enforced in this channel.
  
3). If you have collected information from or about a child under the age of 13, both parties will face a network ban.
+
=Harm Reduction=
 +
Occasionally we have users join our community expecting that, due to the subject matter of the community, we will support them in their dangerous behavior, use, and/or attitudes towards drug use.
 +
This is not our purpose; the TripSit community is devoted to harm reduction, support, and positvitiy, and we will never recommend or tolerate dangerous or reckless drug use.
 +
Users identified as continually engaging in reckless drug-use behavior are seen as a bad influence on the community as a whole, actively working against our mission statement to be a a harm-reduction community devoted to positive support.
 +
It is against the rules to endorse or encourage dangerous behavior regarding drug consumption, just as it is completely unacceptable to expect our community to endorse or encourage your dangerous behavior.
 +
It is, in fact, seen as the responsibility of the community's members to actively discourage dangerous behavior.
 +
All users who choose to do so are expected to discourage drug dosages, drug combinations, and/or any drug experimentation which could be reliably considered unsafe. 
 +
Note that if a situation is identified as life-threatening, or one in which the community's users believe immediate medical attention is required, we will always attempt to contact local medical personel to help you.
 +
As such, these behaviors are considered against the rules and violators may be subjected to temporary or permanent bans (situation depending).
 +
Please accept and consider the advice given to you seriously and note that ignorance of advice pertaining to potentially life threatening situations will not be tolerated by our community.  
  
= Accounts =
+
=Protocol for youngins=
 +
1. Do not give out advice about anything you are not 100% positive about.  If you have no knowledge of the drug, do some research online before providing any advice.<br />
 +
2. Figure out why they want to take X substance<br />
 +
3. If they are using drugs as a coping mechanism<br />
 +
4. Encourage alternate forms of dealing with their problem. More often than not people take drugs because it satisfies something that they are not getting elsewhere.<br />
 +
5. If the reason they are using drugs is out of curiosity or purely recreational;<br />
 +
<div style="margin-left:5px">&bull;Inform them, without exaggerating, the potential physiological, psychological and sociological risks, and make sure they comprehend them.<br />
 +
&bull;Exacerbation of latent mental disorders, or presentation of acute symptoms such as paranoia etc.<br />
 +
&bull;Interactions with current medications or health problems.<br />
 +
&bull;Legal consequences if they get caught or do something stupid that puts others at harm. Basically, how their use could potentially affect others<br /></div>
 +
6. Suggest a milder alternative to their intended route.
 +
IE: Half a tab instead of a full one;mushrooms instead of DMT; Adderall instead of meth.<br />
 +
7. Provide advice that is as accurate as possible that could help mitigate any of the dangers related to taking a mind altering substance<br />
 +
<div style="margin-left:5px">&bull;Communicate that you do not condone the action but will provide information to best reduce harm.<br />
 +
&bull;Make sure that they are ready to accept all consequences for their actions such as imprisonment or death<br />
 +
<span style="margin-left:10px"><i>Why give advice instead of telling them to come back when they’re older?</i><br /></span>
 +
&bull;We do NOT condone the use of drugs before the age of 16, preferably 18 (state and international laws vary).<br />
 +
&bull;As soon as a minor is already dead-set on doing drugs, you should switch to education mode, not continue to prohibit the use.<br />
 +
&bull;Repeatedly saying not to do it is neither helpful to them, nor effective at reducing harm.<br /></div>
 +
<b>Prohibiting action is the best way to encourage said action, especially in children.</b><br />
 +
While it still may be harmful, TripSit staff can provide advice on how to reduce the dangers and risk of drug use and promote harm reduction - the closest you could get to "Harm Reduction Through  Education"
  
1). The administrators of TripSit reserve the right to delete any and all data associated with abandoned accounts including, but not limited to: profile information entered by the user; channels owned by the user or blog posts made by the user.  
+
=Medical Advice=
 +
Please avoid spreading misinformation about drug use.  
 +
Misinformation is harmful to our community.
 +
No information is always better than wrong information.
 +
It is still better to inform the person there may be no current information rather than staying silent and having them wonder if anyone noticed it.
 +
In most instances, people on the internet are not qualified to provide medical advice. 
 +
Members of the TripSit community are extremely knowledgeable, wise, and often have ample life experience in a range of situations pertaining to drug use; however they are no substitute for a personal doctor.
 +
If you are not 100% positive about the advice you are thinking about giving, don't say it.
 +
If you don't have sources to validate your advice, do not say anything related to medical advice.
  
    a). Further, TripSit reserves the right to reissue the username & any channels associated with an abandoned account.
+
=Suicide Threats=
 +
While TripSitters will try their best to help member cope with down feelings of depression or worse, we cannot tolerate threats of suicide.  
 +
Suicide, depression and mental illness are not the focus of our network and our staff are not adequately trained to deal with suidical situations, nor is it fair to our network's member's to have the onus of guilt placed upon them for potential outcomes of such situations.
 +
If a member is experiencing suicidal thoughts or tendencies, we kindly ask them to consider either professional theraputic assistance, calling the Suicide Hotline, 911, or directing themselves to a community better equipped to deal with their kind of situation.  
  
    b). An account is deemed to be abandoned if the account has no activity in the last three months.
+
We endorse Reddit's SuicideWatch community.
 +
Suicide prevention hotlines:
 +
*USA: 1-800-273-8255 : National Suicide Prevention Lifeline
 +
*International: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_suicide_crisis_lines
  
    c). A channel is deemed to be abandoned if the channel has no operator activity in the last month.
+
Poison control hotlines:
 +
*USA: 888 888 8822:
 +
*UK 111
 +
*WHO Posion Control: http://www.who.int/ipcs/publications/training_poisons/guidelines_poison_control/en/
  
2). A hostmask cloak will be granted automatically upon registration with nickserv.
+
In a situation in which we fear for a users life, we will remind them of the guidelines stated above and do everything in our power to assist the member find qualified help.  
 +
In a dangerous overdose situation in which we believe immediate medical attention is required, we will always attempt to contact local medical personel.
 +
These behaviors disrupt the primary objectives of our community.
 +
Therefore, suicide threats and attempts are considered against the rules, and while we will try our best to help in the immediate timescale, such threats and attempts may result in either a temporary or permanent ban from the community (under discretion from the administrators).
  
= Measures =
+
=Mental illness=
 +
While we are very accepting of members who may have mental illnesses and/or disorders, we do not condone or encourage the use or abuse of drugs that could interact, worsen, or otherwise negatively affect your health.
 +
The TripSit community will not serve as enabler for the destruction of your own mental or physical health.
 +
Please seek medical assistance if you have a question regarding mental illnesses or disorders and their interactions with drugs.
 +
We are not qualified to provide professional medical advice on drug interactions with mental ilnesses.
 +
We are here to help!
 +
If you want to discuss the topic, feel free to bring it up in our IRC channels or pm the TripSit team.
 +
We are happy to discuss any topic at length with you, warn you of any potential drug interactions as well as give you advice, love, respect and positive energy to the best of our ability.
 +
The TripSit community is always here to help and support you, no matter what. We love you and want to keep you with us!

TripSit IRC Terms of Service

By connecting and using TripSits service, you have read and agree to abide by our terms of service, found http://wiki.tripsit.me/wiki/Network_Terms_of_Service

Hostmasks

A hostmask cloak will be granted automatically upon registration with nickserv.

Nicknames may not contain any racial slurs or bigotry in the nickname. In case of nickname containing a slur - it will be removed, and multiple offenses may result in bans. Nicknames may not contain any special signs such as: !@#$%&*()=+/;:'“~ The only exclusion is an underscore '_' and the vertical bar ' | ' character used to denote extra information. Nicknames must not impersonate a reddit user.

General Tripsit Rules

By connecting to any chat channel within the TripSit network (#drugs, #tripsit, #psychonaut, #tripsitVIP, #tripradio, #psychpharm, #tripsit.me, etc) you agree you will:

1. Use common sense and don’t do questionable things. If you have any doubt over whether your topic, question, advice, or comment is acceptable, feel free to speak to any operator or staff member on the IRC channel or join #tripsit.me to grab the attention of everyone available. We are happy to give you a solid judgement on whether your topic is acceptable in private without judgement or consequence.

2. Keep discussions in the appropriate channel. The #drugs channel is moderated by the TripSit staff and is our most frequently used channel. It is used for general drug discussion. This includes dosage, effects, routes of administration, and just general chat. Use #tripsit for calmer chat and for counseling. We have #psychonaut for spirituality topics and #psychopharm for chemistry topics. Finally, #tripsit.me if you wish to discuss specific question or issues with moderators and administrators; this channel is devoted to discussing meta TripSit topics such as banning and rules inquriries.

3. Absolutely no gore. Please mark any content 18+ with a NSFW label.

Solicitation

Absolutely no sourcing.

Sourcing is defined as "discussion of where to specifically purchase or otherwise acquire substances of any kind; this includes links to legal substance vendors."

This includes websites such as Amazon. Caffeine, Nootropics, and nitrous are all examples of legal substances that are still not allowed to be sourced.

Explaining that you can acquire psychedelics at music festivals is is common knowledge and allowed, while discussing a specific website or vendor is strictly forbidden.

Do not ask for money, BTC, or users to send you drugs (this includes trades for BTC -- including "legal" trades.) Keep in mind sarcasm is hard to tell on the internet.

Sourcing

Overview

We define sourcing as asking for or providing a specific source for drugs. This includes, but is not limited to, asking for vendor names, asking for a dealers number/contact information, URLs, and specifics about offers or transaction details.

  • "How much does weed cost in {given area}?"

Be aware

We like to deal with other behaviors in a softer manner, by guiding the user and explaining to them what is and isn't allowed. In the case of repeated offences or a bad attitude we reserve the right to forgoe these protocols in favor of the community. Every case is unique and will be dealt with to the best of the ability of the staff on duty at the time. Every action is logged and audited.

Rules are NOT to be argued in public channels. If you have a problem with the rules, take it to #tripsit.me or PM. Arguing with a staff member about the rules in a public channel is grounds for being removed from the channel.

Remember: Everything you post on the internet is recorded in some way and can/will make it's way back to you. It is for your own safety and the safety of the network that these rules are in place. We want to provide you with the best network ever. It is ultimately your responsibility what you post in chat. Be aware that legislation differs depending on location and do not suggest illegal acts.

Impersonating LEO

Impersonating an officer of the law, such as having a nickname that implies you are a LEO, will first result in a warning. If the nick is not changed the user will be kicked. Repeated attempts to join with the same name will result in a temporary or permanent ban.

Attitude

We are a network devoted to harm reduction and positivity. Keep It Positive People (KIPP). No rude, mean, or judgmental language or discussion. This includes racial slurs, homophobia, and all other prejudice against any person or group of people. Do not insult other users; take heated arguments to private chat. Posting personal information about channel members, or doxing, is grounds for a permanent network ban. Trying to collect personal info of users is dealt with in the same manner.

#tripsit

This channel is for people currently under the influence of drugs and those there to sit them. This channel should always be ready to help fellow members. Please take any drug discussion, arguments or otherwise distracting chatter to #drugs instead. Only light-hearted and positive conversation here: We all know how easily a trip can turn bad just by a simple thought. Anyone caught being facetious will be warned and then banned if need be. Rules are STRICTLY enforced in this channel.

Harm Reduction

Occasionally we have users join our community expecting that, due to the subject matter of the community, we will support them in their dangerous behavior, use, and/or attitudes towards drug use. This is not our purpose; the TripSit community is devoted to harm reduction, support, and positvitiy, and we will never recommend or tolerate dangerous or reckless drug use. Users identified as continually engaging in reckless drug-use behavior are seen as a bad influence on the community as a whole, actively working against our mission statement to be a a harm-reduction community devoted to positive support. It is against the rules to endorse or encourage dangerous behavior regarding drug consumption, just as it is completely unacceptable to expect our community to endorse or encourage your dangerous behavior. It is, in fact, seen as the responsibility of the community's members to actively discourage dangerous behavior. All users who choose to do so are expected to discourage drug dosages, drug combinations, and/or any drug experimentation which could be reliably considered unsafe. Note that if a situation is identified as life-threatening, or one in which the community's users believe immediate medical attention is required, we will always attempt to contact local medical personel to help you. As such, these behaviors are considered against the rules and violators may be subjected to temporary or permanent bans (situation depending). Please accept and consider the advice given to you seriously and note that ignorance of advice pertaining to potentially life threatening situations will not be tolerated by our community.

Protocol for youngins

1. Do not give out advice about anything you are not 100% positive about. If you have no knowledge of the drug, do some research online before providing any advice.
2. Figure out why they want to take X substance
3. If they are using drugs as a coping mechanism
4. Encourage alternate forms of dealing with their problem. More often than not people take drugs because it satisfies something that they are not getting elsewhere.
5. If the reason they are using drugs is out of curiosity or purely recreational;

•Inform them, without exaggerating, the potential physiological, psychological and sociological risks, and make sure they comprehend them.

•Exacerbation of latent mental disorders, or presentation of acute symptoms such as paranoia etc.
•Interactions with current medications or health problems.

•Legal consequences if they get caught or do something stupid that puts others at harm. Basically, how their use could potentially affect others

6. Suggest a milder alternative to their intended route. IE: Half a tab instead of a full one;mushrooms instead of DMT; Adderall instead of meth.
7. Provide advice that is as accurate as possible that could help mitigate any of the dangers related to taking a mind altering substance

•Communicate that you do not condone the action but will provide information to best reduce harm.

•Make sure that they are ready to accept all consequences for their actions such as imprisonment or death
Why give advice instead of telling them to come back when they’re older?
•We do NOT condone the use of drugs before the age of 16, preferably 18 (state and international laws vary).
•As soon as a minor is already dead-set on doing drugs, you should switch to education mode, not continue to prohibit the use.

•Repeatedly saying not to do it is neither helpful to them, nor effective at reducing harm.

Prohibiting action is the best way to encourage said action, especially in children.
While it still may be harmful, TripSit staff can provide advice on how to reduce the dangers and risk of drug use and promote harm reduction - the closest you could get to "Harm Reduction Through Education"

Medical Advice

Please avoid spreading misinformation about drug use. Misinformation is harmful to our community. No information is always better than wrong information. It is still better to inform the person there may be no current information rather than staying silent and having them wonder if anyone noticed it. In most instances, people on the internet are not qualified to provide medical advice. Members of the TripSit community are extremely knowledgeable, wise, and often have ample life experience in a range of situations pertaining to drug use; however they are no substitute for a personal doctor. If you are not 100% positive about the advice you are thinking about giving, don't say it. If you don't have sources to validate your advice, do not say anything related to medical advice.

Suicide Threats

While TripSitters will try their best to help member cope with down feelings of depression or worse, we cannot tolerate threats of suicide. Suicide, depression and mental illness are not the focus of our network and our staff are not adequately trained to deal with suidical situations, nor is it fair to our network's member's to have the onus of guilt placed upon them for potential outcomes of such situations. If a member is experiencing suicidal thoughts or tendencies, we kindly ask them to consider either professional theraputic assistance, calling the Suicide Hotline, 911, or directing themselves to a community better equipped to deal with their kind of situation.

We endorse Reddit's SuicideWatch community. Suicide prevention hotlines:

Poison control hotlines:

In a situation in which we fear for a users life, we will remind them of the guidelines stated above and do everything in our power to assist the member find qualified help. In a dangerous overdose situation in which we believe immediate medical attention is required, we will always attempt to contact local medical personel. These behaviors disrupt the primary objectives of our community. Therefore, suicide threats and attempts are considered against the rules, and while we will try our best to help in the immediate timescale, such threats and attempts may result in either a temporary or permanent ban from the community (under discretion from the administrators).

Mental illness

While we are very accepting of members who may have mental illnesses and/or disorders, we do not condone or encourage the use or abuse of drugs that could interact, worsen, or otherwise negatively affect your health. The TripSit community will not serve as enabler for the destruction of your own mental or physical health. Please seek medical assistance if you have a question regarding mental illnesses or disorders and their interactions with drugs. We are not qualified to provide professional medical advice on drug interactions with mental ilnesses. We are here to help! If you want to discuss the topic, feel free to bring it up in our IRC channels or pm the TripSit team. We are happy to discuss any topic at length with you, warn you of any potential drug interactions as well as give you advice, love, respect and positive energy to the best of our ability. The TripSit community is always here to help and support you, no matter what. We love you and want to keep you with us!

Report Policy

Please help us keep our IRC channels remain a positive and enjoyable place to be. free from trolling and rule violators, by reporting users who are breaking the rules! If someone is breaking rules in a channel, you can use ‘~report [#channel] [user] [reason]‘ to report them to the TripSit staff. You can use this command in the channel or in a private message to tripbot. This command will alert TripSit staff members about the infringement or feedback and will investigate the incident as soon as possible. You can also report good behavior, such as good tripsitting or providing good advice! Be sure to give good people credit when it's due! Rule Breaking Procedure

As a member

~report the user If no action is taken, initiate a !votekick <user> yes/no or a !voteban

As a Power User

Follow the above procedure and respond to ~reports. Tell the TripSit team in #tripsit.me that you are addressing the report and will talk to the person in PM. Warnings/discussions will be sent via PM on most occasions as to avoid drama in the main channels. Occasionally public warnings will be issued to make a statement or clarify rules for all.

As a moderator or administrator:

Follow the above procedure and respond to ~reports, kicks, and other violations

Kick immediately if behavior continues

Kicks will be issued after a warning on most cases

Kicks may be used without providing a warning if a user is clearly trolling or if the discussion must be stopped immediately

Kicks are mostly to send a message to the user and to other users that this behavior is not tolerated

Kick is more severe than a warning but does not do permenant damage.

Kicks aren't that big a deal; you can rejoin the channel immediately if you choose to do so.

Provide a reason and a link to the rules in the kick.

Remain courteous: Most users are not 'bad' people.

If they rejoin and continue, ~nban

Repeat offenders will be considered for a temporary or permanent ban. Power users also can instute a vote ban using !voteban user yes/no

Each situation is different and may be subjective, so temporary and permanent bans will be handled case by case basis. TripSit staff will consult with any violators at length before any decision is made. Several moderators, administrators, and TripSit Staff will handle all instances where a member may have to be banned.

Temporary bans may also be issued.

If a issue requires an immediate ban, please make sure you make notifcation of the ban using ~nban user reason tripbot will have information regarding all bans. Enter ~ban_user to see notes regarding the ban.

Add a note to the ~banlist

LAST RESORT: BANNED USERS DO NOT COME BACK NOR DO THEY TELL THEIR FRIENDS ABOUT OUR NETWORK If they protest or are unclear as to why they are banned, do not argue in PM, invite them to #tripsit.me to keep it public and explain why they were banned.

Keep it professional; do not make it personal, seek vengance or retaliation. Please do not take any of this personally as we are running a professional harm reduction network.

We love you all, but some of you need a break sometimes!

If they continue, involve network staff to possibly get them a k-line and permanent removal.

Ban-Appealment Policy

Do not evade a ban issued to you. If you wish to discuss your ban, please PM a TripSit Moderator, Administrator, or staff member - or join #tripsit.me.
