  • Someone is persistently harrassing me, what can I do?

    There is an option in the chat rooms to block anyone you like. The chat rooms are supposed to be self managed, we are not here to hold people's hands. However, if you have a serious issue with someone in chat, make sure you take a screenshot and send it to us when reporting the offender. Without this evidence as proof, it's impossible for us to take someone's word over anothers on the basis of what may or may not have been said. If it's a minor issue, please just block the person and be done with it. This site will help those who don't know how to take a screenshot:
