Room Limits: Currently no room limits.

This room is rated 18+ Only, this means:
  • Pretty much anything goes; That is why it's 18+ only

General Rules
Spammers will not be tolerated. This includes:
(Spamming is permanent ban, no exceptions)
  • Clearing the canvas board without consent
  • Combining the entire canvas board without consent
  • Defacing other peoples artwork
  • Verbally abusing others
  • Flooding the chatbox
  • Fighting with the Admins/Moderators
  • Before you leave, please erase your work. This will free up space for the next person.
    ^ This is very important!!! When you erase your work, before you leave stay for a minute or two. This is so the brush strokes you've made (erasing), can be registered.
  • Double Rooming is OK, but no more. No triple(3), quadruple(4), quintuple(5) rooming!!!
  • If afk/brb please write it next to your art with your username, for the reason below.
  • Lurking: Moderators has the right to kick you out of a room if you are lurking. If you're chatting in the chatbox that is fine. You need to be active in the room. If Moderators gets no response from you over a certain amount of time, you will be kicked.
    • Moderators will also check the canvas board if you've written brb/afk(with your username), to consider you not a lurker (you won't be kicked).
Drawing Etiquette:
  • If someone is drawing too close to you, tell them to move. If they do not comply, screen shot it and report it to a moderator. At some level this is considered as spam and result as a warning.

    • If someone tell you to move because you are drawing to close, move.
  • Please do not draw “boxes” of where you are going to work. It's really rude.
  • Do not take up the entire canvas. If you want to take up so much please find an empty room, an oekaki, or an different art program. The pchat is a canvas sharing program. Be considerate of you space.
  • Be polite.

¹ Referring back to Flash's Guide to Moderating.

Rules are decided among the PaintChat Moderators and has been collected from the faq. Rules are posted here for easy access.
Forgetting pain is convenient. Remembering it, agonizing. But recovering the truth is worth the suffering.
