Welcome Gone Wilders
r/gonewild chat is not modded by r/gonewild mods -- if you have a chat issue use the 'Message the room owners' link at the bottom of this page.
Read the rules before participating.
This room runs on respect. Show respect to those around you, and you will get it back. Act like a douche, and you will likely get that back too. This is a community; if you feel like it isn't the one for you, leave.
Take all steps to preserve your anonymity (you are responsible for your own safety).
No posting others' personal info (including name, location, name/profiles on other websites). Don't be creepy.
No capping (image or video capture of cams) without explicit permission.
Do not link to pictures/posts of other chatters without their permission. When you have permission, linking to posts (instead of directly to pictures) is preferred, as it:  allows people to upvote, and  makes it clearer to the room mods that it is a publicly available picture.
Must be 18 or older. If there are concerns, you may be asked to join http://www.icanhazchat.com/group/agechecked.
No criticizing others' bodies. Do not harass, or make demands of people on cam.
No simulated (or real) sexual acts involving animals, children, sleeping/unconscious people. No children on cam (even if they can't see cams)
No weapons play, suicide talk or cutting.
No complaining about cam ratio(male/female) or lack of nudity. There is also no need to announce which cams you are disabling.
Do not discuss emotionally-charged topics such as religion or politics in open chat. You are welcome to discuss them in PMs or in another room.
No racism, sexism, misogyny, misandry, homophobia, transphobia, etc.
Linking to, 'invading' or 'stealing' cammers from other rooms causes unwanted drama and may result in being kicked or banned. If you see something questionable in another room, report the cam and/or send the information to the sitemods using the 'Contact' page.
Talking about any of the GW rooms (or linking to them) in other ICHC rooms is an immediate ban.
It is OK to link to rooms you have created yourself -- off-shoot rooms are sometimes created when the main topic or rules do not match the main GW rooms (examples: truth or dare, game cams, yoga cams, etc).
When cams are full:
a) If you're not adding to the 'gonewild' aspect of the room or participating in chat, give up your cam slot as a courtesy to those who are.
b) If you're cammed in more than 1 room and the cam slots are full, please cam down as a courtesy to those waiting.
c) During peak times when cam slots are in high demand, mods may cam down people who are not 'going wild.'
No publicly posting chat logs.
No reposting whispers or PMs in public. If someone is harassing you in whispers or PMs, bring it to the attention of a room mod (use the /tellmods command). If a mod does not respond within a few minutes, then you are welcome to repost them in the room. Save chat transcripts of any harassment so you can provide proof.
Mods will advise of rules on first warning and advise of possible ban on second warning. Instant ban for aggressive racism/capping/posting personal info of others.
If you cam often and would like to mod, just ask!
Accounts are optional for chatting on this site, but the gonewild room is usually configured (by the gonewild room owners) to require a registered account. This is usually done to help minimize trolling, people impersonating other users, etc.
Like on Reddit, accounts are free and do not require email.
Don't get into personal arguments in public chat. These should be taken to private communication.
Don't ask people to 'private' if you haven't known them for awhile.
Don't criticize people of either gender for getting naked or doing some act. Close their cam if you don't want to see it.
Don't run video game playing cams during busy times. Rationale: it's not social, tends to drive away some people.
Don't compare bodies, directly or indirectly. Sure you might find person X more attractive that person Y, but it hurts the room when you broadcast it.
You get more respect and trust if you go on cam. You don't have to be on a lot for this.
If being harassed through chat or in PM please use /tellmods to let the room mods know. Save chat transcripts of any harassment.
One of the more common mistakes people make at first is to attempt to direct naked people by telling them what to do. This doesn't usually work and can result in people being annoyed. You are more likely to be successful with a more subtle approach, and by complimenting them.
It's important to realize that males (naked or otherwise) bring females. If you don't like seeing males, just disable their cams.
The chat isn't always about sex. Most of the people are geeks and/or redditors and talk about that kind of stuff a lot.
Lurking is a good way for newcomers to get a feel for how the room works. Long-time lurkers tend to make people nervous. Don't be that guy.

If there are problems the room may move without warning. Being a regular on-cam participant is a good way to stay in-the-loop.
