As the Fever Clan Fallout 76 channel keeps growing, we have gone from a few people in a channel to twenty plus during clan events. To keep this a fun and productive channel, we want to provide some basic guidelines and tips to keep chat friendly and easy to understand. Just like any crowded room, it is easy to accidentally talk over each other and make the chat less enjoyable.

1: Basic Fever rules apply to chat. If you are not familiar with them they are listed here: The FeverClan Standard (The Rules). It boils down to Wil Wheaton’s law: Don't be a dick. Be respectful. Often, conversations take strange side roads. If someone seems uncomfortable with the subject, change the subject. Avoid politics or other controversial subjects. This should go without saying, but sexism, racism, homophobia, etc. are absolutely prohibited.

2: Don’t talk over others. Sometimes chat gets busy and some people are naturally louder or are trying to be heard. Be aware you may be talking over someone or not giving them a chance to speak. Take a pause and see what happens.

3: When it gets busy, keep it short and sweet. This is particularly important during events when people are trying to communicate important info. We all like funny and interesting stories, but monopolizing the conversation is not polite and makes some people get annoyed enough to leave. If you need to have a long conversation like talking about perks or item trading, please utilize the other voice chat rooms. That’s what they are there for!

4: Limit unnecessary chatter and noise like talking to yourself. Does the voice inside your head sometimes escape from that noble institution? I bet it does. We all find ourselves talking through tasks sometimes. If you are, try muting yourself so you don't talk over people. If what's going on in the background is getting picked up by your mic, it may bother others as well. Check your threshold levels and if it is still an issue, use your mute hotkey or switch to push-to-talk mode. You can find instructions on that here: How-To: - Discord Push to Talk, Keybinds, and Input Sensitivity Settings.

5: Mute your microphone when you step away from the computer. If your headset is with you, we can hear what's going on wherever you are. No one wants to hear you opening a bag of chips, going to the bathroom, or worse! Ask for help if you have questions. If you are unfamiliar with Discord, see the pinned messages on how to do basic things like set up a keybind for mute or adjust your threshold. If you still need help, the community will be happy to assist. Don't feel embarrassed to ask.

Chat Room Etiquette TL;DR (too long; didn’t read):
1. Don't be a dick.
2. Don't talk over others.
3. Keep it short and sweet.
4. Stop talking to yourself or at least don't let us hear it.
5. No one wants to hear your yappy dog barking or heavy breathing.
6. Mute your mic when you step away.
7. If you don't know how to do something, just ask.
