Technical problems with can be brought up in #help.

The #help room has staff there to address anything related to technical problems with the IRC network, subreddit, or website.
If you need help connecting via our TOR client, this is the channel to get assistance.
This is not a room to get help with drug information, and you will be kindly redirected to #tripsit or #drugs for that.

You may talk to the TripSit Managers to ask questions or give feedback via IRC in the #tripsit.me channel.

You can access this room on IRC by saying '/join #tripsit.me or using this link.
Please join this room if you are unclear or need further explanation about any IRC rules.
We ask that non-staff do not idle in this room, so when you are finished, please leave the channel using the /part #channel command.

If rules are broken, use the ~report command to notify staff.

Syntax is: ~report <#channel> <user> <reason>
Rules are enforced by the TripSit staff; as much as we try, we cannot monitor every aspect of our network all the time.
We encourage users to use reports to get attention to a situation quickly.
Should you witness a user breaking one of the following rules, use the ‘~report’ command to notify the TripSit staff.
Try to be as clear and detailed as possible when explaining the nature of the event.

To appeal a ban, /join the #tripsit.me channel.

Do not evade a ban issued to you, this will result in a removal from the server (k-line).
Ban-evasion is when you enter a TripSit room while still under the effect of a ban.
While banned, you can still enter non-TripSit rooms and #tripsit.me - If you wish to discuss a ban, please PM a TripSit staff member or join #tripsit.me.

To appeal a k-line, email the admins.

If you have been removed from the network with a k-line, you can send an email to admin (at) tripsit (dot) me.
We will investigate and get back to you as soon as we can.
You can also send a modmail to /r/tripsit, but please, do not make a post on /r/tripsit.

No information is better than wrong information.

If you are not 100% positive about the advice you are thinking about giving, do not say it.
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 do not have sources to validate your advice, do not say anything related to medical advice.

Do not suggest harmful actions to others.

It is against the rules to endorse or encourage dangerous behavior regarding drug consumption.
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 to be a a harm-reduction community devoted to positive support.
All users are expected to discourage drug dosages, drug combinations, or any drug experimentation which could be reliably considered unsafe.

Keep in mind sarcasm is hard to tell on the internet, it's better to err on the side of caution when considering to jokingly ask for sources.
Definitions

Linking Posting a URL hyperlink into a channel.

We are happy to give you a solid judgement on whether your topic is acceptable in private without judgement or consequence.
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 forego 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.

Keep It Positive Please.

This basically means no rude, mean, or judgmental discussion.
We are a network devoted to harm reduction and positivity.
One of our policies is to try and Keep It Positive (KIP).
Please refrain from racial slurs, homophobia, and all other prejudice against any person or group of people.
Do not insult other users; take intense arguments to private chat.

Keep the #tripsit channel awesome.

This channel should always be ready to help fellow members.
The #tripsit channel is for people currently under the influence of drugs and those there to sit them.
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.


Do not post gore, mark NSFW links as such.

Do not post any gore. Please mark any content 18+ with a NSFW label.

Do not argue rules in public channels, take it to #tripsit.me.

Arguing a ban, quiet, or general rule is not allowed in public channels, but is encouraged in #tripsit.me
Arguing against established practices in large channels is rarely productive.
However, the TripSit team wants to hear your opinion, and welcomes rule discussion in #tripsit.me
We are happy to discuss any ambiguity in our rules that is not covered on this page.


Do not use poor language.

To ensure maintaining a comfortable atmosphere, certain words trigger a auto-kick.
We believe in free speech, but certain words have proven to only lead to a degradation in community discussion. They are:
Jenkem
Yolo
Nigger
Swag

Do not impersonate law enforcement.

For the sake of everyone's peace of mind, impersonating law enforcement is against our rules.
Impersonating an officer of the law will first result in a warning.
If the user does not comply, the user will be kicked.
Repeated attempts to impersonate law enforcement will result in a temporary or permanent ban.

Do not perform risky actions when using our TinyChat room.

Please refrain from IV activities while on camera.
We are sensitive to our former addicts and appreciate you keeping the room a nice place to be.

Do not give wrong or misleading medical advice to others.

Please avoid spreading misinformation about drug use.
Do not post any content that is libelous, deceptive, fraudulent, tortuous or inaccurate.
Misinformation is harmful to our community.

You may be removed if you continue to chat after receiving advice to seek medical attention

If a user has taken a dangerous drug dose or combination they cannot continue to chat, they should get help.
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 personnel to help you.
As such, these behaviors are considered against the rules and violators may be subjected to temporary or permanent bans (situation depending).

Do not threaten suicide.

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 is not adequately trained to deal with suicidal situations, nor is it fair to our network's members 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 professional therapeutic assistance.
In a situation in which we fear for a user’s 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 personnel.
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).
We endorse Reddit's SuicideWatch community.
