    Update March 6, 2014:

    Chess.com is a global community and we hope to be civil, friendly, and helpful to one another. We try to keep it that way by following a common set of rules for posting. We do not tolerate:

     

    • hate speech, racism, or ideological persecution
    • threatening or aggressive personal attacks
    • obscene or pornographic material

     

    Additionally, the following behaviors are not allowed in the main public forums and chat rooms:

     

    • hijacking of threads with off-topic posts or images
    • persistent stalking and harassing
    • offensive or vulgar language
    • religious or political debate
    • spammy/pointless/distracting posts
    • discussion of illegal activities (drugs, etc)
    • advertising competitive sites
    • cheating

     

    The Off-Topic category and all Group forums are not moderated except for reports of hate speech, threatening personal attacks, or obscenity. If you are found unable to follow these rules, you may have your posting abilities restricted. 

    When you participate in our community please remember:

     

    • be kind - treat others how you would like to be treated; they are human like you
    • be helpful - build others up, don't tear them down; everyone has needs
    • be forgiving - everyone has bad days and we aren't always on our best behavior; give everyone the patience and tolerance you would want
    • be tolerant - other people have opinions

     

    The following are our moderator action policies:

     

    • topics that begin with racism, personal attacks, or obscenity will be immediately deleted. if a user does it a 2nd time, they will be warned. after a 3rd time they will be restricted from posting (muted). 
    • topics that violate the other rules above will be moved to Off Topic
    • comments in the main forums/chat that violate the rules will be deleted
    • comments in the off-topic or private group forums will be handled with as much tolerance as possible within reason
    • moderators may delete posts, or edit to remove offensive material and include an explanation
    • moderators may not, however, make any other comments in other members' posts
    • moderators will treat all members the same without any special privileges
