General Guidelines for Any MGC Chat Group

  1. Always keep to the purpose of the group! Do not share irrelevant messages about other topics.
  2. Do not create groups with minors who do not know each other – no parent wants their kids talking to strangers.
  3. No fake news. Check your sources before you share.
  4. Do not use a group to berate someone else or air grievances. If you have an issue address it one-on-one with the relevant person. Respect one another. Build one another up, not tear one another down.
  5. Avoid long discussions on a particular subject, especially if they are causing disputes. Schedule a meeting to discuss that subject if necessary.
  6. Always notify someone with respect before adding or removing them.
  7. Do politely excuse yourself before you leave a group.
  8. Do not have one-on-one conversations in the group. Switch to private messages.
  9. Do not post in any group between 22:00 and 07:00 unless it is an all-out emergency.
  10. Do not spam the group. Do not send messages that use up large amounts of data bandwidth, which can create a financial burden to others.
