For information on the Chat Box and our previous posting regarding Guidelines, please read this thread:

The Chat Box is a fun feaure of the Forums and we want people to enjoy using it.

Before you use the Chat Box, please just keep in mind that the posts are visible to everyone - both members and non-members - and on every single page of the Forums (unless of course members have the right hand side column turned off when logged in). Because of this, we do not want the Chat Box to be used for anything other than polite, friendly conversation and chat.

It doesn't have to be about winter sports, it doesn't have to be totally serious - but it does have to be within our guidelines, and here they are:

- No personal insults;
- No swearing (includes use of **** and ascii characters);
- No offensive or over use of gutter humour;
- No sarcasm directed towards SJ moderators/policies;
- No badmouthing of any individual, company or organisation;
- No discussion of any business;
- No discussion of our policies;
- No advertising or business promotion of any kind;
- No links

Please also do not post anything in Japanese fonts in the chatbox as Japanese characters cause a few problems in certain non-Japanese browser configurations.

If members go against the guidelines, the only solution available to use is to prevent them from posting - not something we want to do.... so your co-operation is appreciated.


Please note that this 'stricter policy' applies only to the Chat Box. There have been no changes to our policies regarding posting in the main Forums.

We hope you enjoy using the Chat Box.

Thank you!
