= Re-done because some things happened to change just now. =
First there was Paltalk, then there was Stickam, then Google+ and now there is VIPTopia!
This website is a little confusing so let's get some things out of the way.
Because VIPTopia is in no way affiliated with Newgrounds.com and the group was created by Newgrounds fans, there is no "official" ties between the two sites. The content on VIPTopia and the administration of the chat is not the same as here. As with any service populated by teenagers and man-childs, content probably isn't going to be safe for work at all times. Common sense dictates that Newgrounds moderators and administrators have no control over what happens in the VIPTopia chat rooms! (IE: don't send me or Wade a PM complaining that so-and-so keeps kicking you from the VIPTopia chat room. We can't do anything about it.)

: Click here. The sign-up steps are self explanitory.
: Go to THIS LINK and scroll through the chatrooms. There is currently no way to link directly to a chatroom. The current room is called NG General. It is now a PERMANENT CHATROOM. It is run by EJR, MercatorMap, and Zachary.

. Complaining about the administration of the chat room may result in deleted posts or BBS bans as mods see fit. If you don't like that, then don't post in this thread.
These are the rules of VIPTopia.
: Absolutely no complaining about kicks or bans in this thread.
If you have any complaints, or questions why you were kicked or banned from the chat room, Send a PM to the administrator of the group. Whining about it in this thread will get you nowhere at best, BBS banned at worst.
: No Spamming
Like Stickam, VIPTopia has webcam and microphone support. The three areas of spam will be the following:
Audio = Mic spam, loud audio, obnoxious screaming, etc.
Video = Annoying videos, shock videos, adult material, viral videos
Text/Other = This chat supports special features such as drawing, so as long as you aren't being a nuisance then you'll be alright. Other text spam will generally be allowed.
: No Trolling
You may receive a kick or ban for this.
: Do not ask to be a moderator of the chat.
Currently there's no way of modding a user anyway (that we know of at this point in time) so don't ask. This goes along with that spamming/trolling thing.

There are currently THREE different methods of punishment in a VIPTopia chat.
- GAG: Silences the user causing trouble but does not kick them.
- KICK: Kicks the user out, but they may re-enter at any point in time.
- BAN: Permanently bans a user from the chatroom. There is currently no way to reverse this. This should not ever be used unless a user is excessively spamming or posting highly inappropriate material. (Account could be demodded and room could go down).

Heh Come Join Us ! ! !
Stole over half of this write-up from Malachy, so thanks.
Side note: If there's someone on cam you have to click on the little icons next to their names to open them up. It's kind of annoying but manageable.
