2: While spinning, you must have an external webcam. This is mandatory!
3: You must be in the chatroom while you are spinning. If you are having troubles keeping connected, use the "POPOUT CHAT" to maintain a connection.
4: Be courteous to everyone, even if they're being rude. Maintain your calm. Use the Ignore feature in the chatroom.
5: If you schedule a time slot, you must play it. If something comes up, please find someone to fill your time slot, or remove yourself out of the slot. If you're at last resort, please report your absence to us via the contact form with the subject "Unable To Play Set" stating that you can't play your set.
