Tips for Netiquette

How NOT to be a troll

What is netiquette? What's a troll?

Netiquette is a set of rules you should use while you are online. Why should you use them? Because if you do use them, you will look better organized, and seem like a more educated person if you don't use them, you will look like a troll. A troll is someone who tries to cause grief on the internet, sometimes called a griefer. A griefer, or a troll always want attention, never give them any attention!

So now that I know what netiquette is, how should I use it?

  • Don't let people get you mad, just ignore them.
  • If you receive offensive emails/'texts, save the evidence, block the person, then send it to an adult or admin of the site.
  • Be nice online, don't become a troll yourself.
  • Remember on almost ever site there is a block button, use it!
  • Remember to follow the rules online, treat others the way you would treat them in real life
  • Don't feed the trolls, if someone is annoying you leave the game or go on a different server.
