Chat Rules

Above all else JKonFX.com serves to provide a safe, secure and friendly environment for forex traders of all abilities and ages to share thoughts, knowledge and discover new ideas and values, through news, videos, downloadable content and discussion. A constructive, respectful and welcoming approach is required from all traders at all times. The chat rules are a general guide about what we do and do not expect from members, it is not an exhaustive list and moderators will sometimes make decisions independent of the rules. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the rules please contact us. Thank you!

Be polite

Every member deserves to be treated with respect. Positive and polite posts create a friendly and welcoming environment that all members will feel comfortable in.

Think before posting

Sensible, well thought-out and legible posts help other members understand what is being explained.

Use the English language

Ensure that you're writing and communicating in English only.

Use grammar checking

There are some great plugins you can use such as Grammarly.com to help you.

Tag currencies

Please use the $ sign when denoting currencies, for example, "$EURUSD", "$EUR/USD", "$eurusd" so users can understand which currencies you are talking about. This makes it easier for mobile users too.

Use profanity or post inappropriate content

We require that all content posted in the chat room is suitable for people of all ages, this includes words, videos and pictures. Any messages containing inappropriate content or profanity (including self-censored, automatically censored, acronyms and slang) will be removed.

Flame or provoke

Do not insult or flame other traders of the chat room. Similarly, do not post with the intention of provoking a reaction from fellow traders. This includes encouraging flame wars. Instigation is not tolerated.

Spam

A spam message is a message that provides no value to the discussion, or a thread that creates nuisance for others. The most common spam messages are posting "tl:dr;", "+1", "this", posting image macros, and nothing but memes or images. Threads are considered spam when they are duplicates, or devoid of valuable content.

Sequential messages

We ask that you try to avoid making multiple messages in a row within a few seconds of each other, if you can avoid it, as a courtesy to other users. For example, write your message in one go rather than like a text message which may be over a few line, "Hi, what do you think will happen today?" Enter, "I suspect that $EUR/USD will ..." Enter.
