- The following are typical rules given by professors. Depending on the professor, size of class, or topic, these rules
may be altered. The typical protocol for professors is as follows:
First Offense: Warning
Second Offense: 3-4 Points taken
Third Offense: 5 Points taken
Fourth Offense: Kicked from class or sent to detention.
Speaking out is specifically prohibited in class due to the large amount of students that will attend. It also slows down an already long class, and makes what would take 60 minutes, 90 minutes. For this reason, speaking out is prohibited unless you raise your hand, and also are called on.
You should not spam raising and lowering hands. Professors have a list of who has raised their hands and can see who has done so from this list. If you have a question, wait patiently. Professors won’t instantly stop what they are doing to answer you, especially if they JUST started the class.
/me is EXPLICITLY for actions. Using it to speak out, or say /me thinks “Words that are speaking out” is prohibited. Other people in real life cannot see what you are thinking, so therefoe /me is not for anything that is not an ACTION. Anything that would require someone to be a mind reader is not okay.
Avoid questions such as whether or not there is homework, how long the class is, or anything that is not related to the current topic. They waste everyone’s time and make the class longer.
If you arrive late or need to leave early, please do so silently while class is going on. The professor really does not care, and announcing it only disrupts the class.
Moving about is distracting. The only reason you should move is if the professor asks you to, or if you are moving about on your seat to avoid going afk.
All users, whether staff or not, if not teaching or assisting the class, should be seated at a desk in a seat. NOT ON THE DESK, nor ON THE FLOOR. Two to a desk max.
Cheating in any shape or form is not permitted during class. While notes are permitted for quizzes, please do not use google or ask your house for answers. For exams cheating of any kind can lead to a loss of points for anyone involved.
Using Weasley Wizard Wheezes products and eating Bertie botts every flavor beans are not allowed in class. WWW products are very distracting to students and the professor. Bertie beans can potentially harm you, also disrupting the class.
