Each rule infraction will add Infraction Points to your account, and exceeding certain point limits on your account will cause you to be automatically banned. The length of this ban is determined by the amount of Infraction Points currently applied to your account - please refer to the following table for reference.
|Infraction Points||Ban Duration|
Infraction Points applied to your account will expire after a pre-determined period of time, depending on the infraction. Note that this is a separate system from bans, and an infraction expiring does not necessarily indicate that the accompanying ban will expire with it.
Advertising (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Do not post solicitations or advertisements: This includes links to your trades or sales, or asking if players want to purchase something from you. If you are offering something for free, this does not apply. Please use the forums to advertise your deals. Also, please don't link to external chats.
Roleplaying (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Roleplaying is wonderful, but it doesn't suit a large chatroom full of people who want to talk about Furvilla. Roleplaying is better suited for the forums or private messaging, as it can disrupt the flow of conversation. However, short first person messages used sparingly are allowed.
Spamming / Flooding (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
Do not flood the chat room: This is defined as posting multiple messages in a row, where you or your friends are the only ones posting, in a very quick amount of time.
Avatar or signature violations (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Don't use inappropriate content in your avatar (even if cropped) and signature. Also, the signature can't be wider than 504 pixels and taller than 300 pixels. Remember that users will see it every time you post so pick something easy on the eyes!
Backseat moderation (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
We understand that you'd like to help keep the game under control but it's better to use the report feature, as the staff has better tools to handle issues. Also, telling users that they are breaking the rules may make you look condescending in their eyes and make you a target.
Bypassing rules / mimicking rule-breaking behavior (2 Points, Permanent Infraction)
Users that try to copy questionable behavior while slightly altering the part of it that led to an infraction will not be tolerated, even if the purpose is to jokingly tease staff and users.
Criticizing a legitimate gameplay tactic (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
Do not criticise a legitimate, allowed gameplay technique: Oftentimes, players criticize gameplay that does not break rules, such as sniping, buying low and selling high, or other methods of play. Please do not start threads or make comments that criticize players for utilizing allowed gameplay methods that you do not agree with.
Discussion of political or religious forum topic (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Do not discuss politics or religious subjects on the forums: while there is nothing inherently wrong with them, they very commonly lead to heated debates in which users attack one another.
Duplicate threads (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Please do not post duplicate threads: Do not "cross-post" or place your topic in more than one forum board. Please choose only one board, and place your topic in it only one time.
Excessive caps or emojis (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Please do not use excessive caps or decorative icons: these text functions can be useful when they're used sparingly, but they should be used in moderation. Avoid full caps thread titles or paragraphs in caps, and limit the amount of decorative text symbols you use in threads and their titles.
Excessive obscenity (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
While swearing is not against the rules and there are global and personal word filters, please let your posts have a minimum of decency. A message riddled with cuss words or overly graphic descriptions is no good.
Gravedigging (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Avoid gravedigging unnecessary threads: You are welcome to resurrect a discussion if it is pertinent to the current climate of topic. This means that resurrecting a discussion about your favorite costume is okay, but not one that is about a news post from two years ago.
Inappropriate bumping (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Bumping your own threads (posting in them to make them appear at the top of the thread list) is allowed at most once a day for each topic. Forcibly keeping threads on the front page will annoy users that aren’t interested.
Misleading forum titles / clickbait (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
Please do not post misleading thread titles: The thread title you choose should be related to the content within. This is especially important if you have a question, as a topic of "Help" doesn't provide information as to what your problem is. Be descriptive and accurate.
Posting seizure-causing content or jumpscares (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
Avoid posting flashing images that could easily cause an epileptic seizure, a jumpscare or any poor taste joke meant to frighten users or make them feel sick, they aren’t funny.
Posting your real life contact information (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Don't share sensitive information such as your address, phone number, credit card information, etc. Also, email addresses, instant messengers, and links to your offsite web pages are at your own risk. Be careful with what information you post about yourself.
Self-harm or suicide baiting (1 Points, Expires in 30 Days)
Do not post threads to tell other players that you want to self-harm yourself or that you want to commit suicide.
Spamming the forums (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
We don’t like spam. Every thread must have some discussion value, to maintain a level of quality and uniqueness for each topic in the boards. Threads with the sole purpose to increase your post counter are not allowed either. Also, please don't open threads directed at users but message them directly instead. Lastly, refrain from advertising other games or services; while discussing them is fine, "hunting" for users is forbidden.
Subject derailment (1 Points, Expires in 90 Days)
Please do not derail threads: Do not come into a thread and abruptly change the topic. While natural evolution of a discussion from the original subject toward a new one is allowed and encouraged, players should not come into a thread and disrupt the current topic.
