Chat Room Etiquette for Online Bingo

One of the most endearing benefits of playing online bingo is the chat room rapport that often leads to online friendships that can be very fulfilling. The chat box at an online bingo game is always full of energy and humor, but to be a part of such an honored group, you must be respectful and courteous in your words to other chatters.

You should be contemplating chatting before you even get to the chat room. You must be conscientious of your chat presence and the personality that you wish to portray when you create your screen name or nickname. Always choose something that is appropriate and be sure that it cannot be taken in a way that is not your intention. If you think your nickname is funny, think about whether or not the other players will think it is funny, as well. You wouldn’t want anyone to view your name choice as tasteless and pre-judge your character.

The Chat Master (commonly referred to as CM) is there to ensure the games are carried out in proper fashion and that the online bingo experience is a positive one for all participants. Therefore, CMs should always be treated decently and be spoken to politely in respect of their authority. CMs use all capital letters to distinguish themselves from others in the chat room, so that important messages are clear to all players. Therefore, you should never use all capital letters in the online bingo website chat room.

Treating all of your fellow bingo players respectfully is a must. Using abusive or hostile words or language will ruin your reputation very quickly. Bingo chats are expected to be friendly and never insulting or rude. In addition, indecent language including cuss words, racist insults, sexual comments, and other hurtful words are never appropriate.

It is also not acceptable for any online bingo player to impersonate another online bingo player in the chat box. You should also be careful not to overtly brag about your winnings, though it is acceptable to mention them. You can expect other players to congratulate you in your success, and they will expect the same of you.

Additionally, you should never make the online bingo chat room a place to promote or advertise any other online bingo website or ask other players for a loan or gift of money. Also, gossiping about fellow players, whether present or absent, is not favorable.

Finally, just as you are welcomed with open arms and smiling emoticons when you join a new online bingo site and introduce yourself to the chat room, you should also welcome other newcomers. You never know who might be your next best online bingo friend, as chat rooms are a natural place to make new friends. They are also a great place for conversations about bingo or just about any appropriate topic that you could think of. Online bingo chat rooms should be nurtured and preserved, so that they can be a pleasant place for bingo players of all ages and from all corners the world.
