You are a highschool student who is very into a large group chat. Everyday you load up the group chat. This group chat is random people who happen to have loaded it up at the time. You find this fact very entertaining that you get to talk to new people every day, but are slightly weary of it, knowing that anyone can log on.
You have just arrived home for the day. You walk upstairs and load up the online group chat which you use frequently.
Goal: Be a good digital citizen.
[[Open Group Chat ->Group Chat Opening]]You have loaded up the group chat and there is currentely an argument going on.
Hannah V.: Look stop bothering me about my hobby as a skate boarder!
James L.: Why its stupid!
Hannah V.: Plz just leave me alone
James L.: No
Hannah V.: Why r u being mean
James L.: Why not

[[Reload]]You happily were able to do your chatting for the day, and had a fun time. Yet, no matter how much fun you had, you slightly feel bad, maybe there was something you could have done?
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You call James out and tell him what he is doing is wrong and that he should stop, he does stop and apologizes. Even though you doubt he means it, it has worked and he won't be doing that agian for a while.
[[Results ->Ending 1B]]You've both chosen to ignore James, it is an okay choice, and you made Hanah feel better but it wasn't nice to James.
[[Results ->Ending 5B]]You ask James why he bothered Hannah about skate boarding. He ends up actually answering you and says, "I'm sorry, I had a brother who got hurt in a skateboarding accident and I hate skateboarding now." You are very glad he answers you, and so you ask him to stop bothering Hannah, and thankfully he does.
[[Results ->Ending 1C]]Congratulations! You chose the best ending, it is only tied for first with one other option. Asking your parents for help is always a good idea, sometimes things might just be out of your hands.Your Parents have caught you and they are dissapointed. You end up losing the ability to ever do the group chat again. You feel bad. You stood by and watched, even slightly enjoying the drama as someone was bullied and felt terrible.
[[Results ->Ending 6]]You have gotten one of the worst possible results. It is not right to standby and watch people get bullied. You ended up being punished for it and feeling awful.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You yell at James, using three exclaimation points, this is not the best choice, he only responds worse than he has been, this time beginning to bother both of you.
[[Results ->Ending 5A]]You tell Hannah that skate boarding is perfectly fine to do. She is very happy to have someone supporting her and you feel very good about yourself. Though it has taught nothing to James, making him have no remorse for bullying Hannah.
[[Results ->Ending 5C]]You have told Hannah that James just wants to get a reaction out of her, which only seems to make him try harder. Even though James is trying harder, Hannah gets the message and doesn't feel as bad.
[[Results ->Ending 5D]]You both ignore James and eventually he quieted down but he hasn't learned to stop or that it's wrong to bully people like he has been.
[[Results ->Ending 1A]]You have ignored James, though it did solve the problem, it has not taught James anything and he will keep going in the future. This is a one time solve, it only works once, but doesn't solve anything in the long run.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]Even though you ignored James, it will only solve the problem once and he may go on bullying again in the furture, maybe you could have done something different.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You called James out and told him what he was doing was wrong and not okay. He has stopped for the moment and possibly for longer This is the thrid best result, so you can still score better!
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You asked James what was wrong, and he told you. You are very sure that he will stop his bullying and become a better person. This is the best answer, it is only tied for first with one other answer! Good work!Yelling at someone is never a good choice, it will only get them to respond back, getting even more frusturated with you. Also, when you yell at someone it only will frustrate them more, and is in a way, you bullying them.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You have assured Hannah that skate boarding is perfectly okay to do, and there is nothing wrong wiht it. Though Hannah feels better, James didn't have any take away from that, and he still might go on both3ering others in the future.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]Though Hannah feels good about this, James has only got more desperate, and will continue bullying, except only nastier and more angered and desperate.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You have told Hannah that skate boarding is ridiculous. She feels very bad, but James is very entertained, he thinks it is funny what you said, and enjoys watching this all go down.
[[Results ->Ending 4B]]You have questioned Hannahs decision, and only one message comes up next.
Hannah V has left chat
[[Results ->Ending 4C]]You have told Hannah that her hobby is stupid, and is jsut not good. She now feels very bad about herself, and you regret your choice. Even though Hannah feels bad, James loves it, and you have now sided with a bully.
[[Results ->Ending 4D]]You have told Hannah what she does is crazy. She feels bad about herself and quickly logs off the online chat. James loves it and will most likely continue bullying thinking that there will be rewards for it. As you turn away to walk down stairs after chating your dad is behind you. He caught you and punished you by taking away your internet access, except for homework, for a year.
[[Results ->Ending 4A]]Hannah felt bad about what you said, and has logged of the group chat. You have also befriended a bully and you feel very bad about that. This is one of the worst endings, you have now not only seen bullying and done nothing, but were a part of the bullying. Your parents looked in your history and found out what you have done, all your devices have been taken away and you are not allowed to leave the house unless for school for the next month. You have done very poorly.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You have made Hannah feel bullied and one of your teachers found out. It turns out that Hannah was at your school and had told a teacher. You have been put into detention and your parents are told. Your parents ban you from the computer unless it is for school work and take away your phone. You have encouraged James, and he will likely keep going and Hannah feels bad. You have done very poorly.
[[Try Again ->Beginning]]You have told Hannah what she does is ridiculous, she feels bullied and hurt. James loved watching this and will probably see bullying as a funny and good thing with lots of rewards. You parents take away the computer when they find out. It also turned out that Hannah went to the same school as you and your teachers all gave you detention. You can do a lot better!
