Here we go with another round of Chat related problems.
There has been some recent activity that is totally inappropriate and violates Spine-Health rules.
There are some members out there that think it is FUN to gang up on another member, Talk behind peoples backs, impersonate another member, and making fun of another member.
We have had situations where additional member names were created for chat. The actual practice of creating a new member name is NOT prohibited, but we strongly discourage it. What I have found is that people that do that, only need to that to cause problems.
However, the creation of a new member name for CHAT and for the FORUMS so that you can deceive others and/or attempt to impersonate another member is cause for immediate banning from Spine-Health
We have pointed this out countless number of times and to some members, they totally ignore our requests.
I would hate to see CHAT removed because of a few bad apples. I encourage anyone who finds problems in CHAT to come to the Moderators to express your concern.
Many times, we give members extra consideration only because of the medical situation and pain they are under.
However, that does not applies to the problems we see in CHAT.
I am bringing forward a proposal to development:
1 - Have BOT running in all Rooms
2 - Limit the number of people that can be in a CHAT room at a time. (3 or 5 members )
3 - Setting passwords for each room and cross checking to ensure that the member name exists in the Forums.
4 - Scheduling CHAT. Members would have to submit a request for a time/date for access into CHAT.
I would hate to go to these extremes, but honestly, I am being left with very little choices.
As the subject line states, CHAT is a privilege here at
Spine-Health, I expect members to understand that and behave accordingly
Always remember, we can isolate any given individual. We now have a set of tools that can pinpoint
a member and track them.
