    Default Growtopia Forum Rules

    PLEASE NOTE: THESE ARE THE SAME RULES WE'VE BEEN ENFORCING ALL ALONG.
    They are being posted due to the growing number of people on the forums and the numerous times "I didn't know" or "There's no rule about that" have been used as complaints about getting infractions.
    - - - - -

    1. BE CIVIL
    Although this is a very simple, straighforward rule, I am including some examples of civil behavior below. This is not a comprehensive list and specific situations will be evaluated individually.

    * treat the community and the individuals within it with respect
    * use family-friendly language
    * when disagreeing with someone make your points calmly, politely and with evidence
    * avoid threatening people in any way
    * avoid sexual content (including content that can be interpreted as sexual because of context)
    * avoid bullying behavior
    ----bullying = ongoing abusive behavior involving a power imbalance
    ----power imbalance = a popular or experienced member attacking a new member or a collection of people attacking one person

    * be tolerant of others' beliefs, cultures and personal quirks
    * avoid trolling behavior
    ----trolling = drawing attention to yourself and causing problems in the community through lies, manipulation, alt accounts or other disruptive actions

    Members who are unable to remain civil (in these ways or in other ways yet to be mentioned) will be given warnings (for the first offense) or infractions.

    2. USE THE CORRECT SUB-FORUM
    Threads posted in the wrong sub-forum may be deleted. Infractions may be given for intentionally or repeatedly posting in the wrong place.

    3. AVOID SPAM
    * Spam includes advertising other companies, posting multiple copies of the same thread, bumping your own thread repeatedly or posting nonsense in order to raise your post count or disrupt normal forum activities.

    4. USE APPROPRIATE SIGNATURES
    * limit your signature to a reasonable size, use spoilers to hold pictures or text that is too long
    * see rule #1

    5. NO HACK TALK
    * Do not use "famous" hacker names or link their websites or give any information that allows someone to google it (we don't really want kids getting malware and trojans installed)

    Note: If you notice your posts or threads were removed by mods, be careful - if this happens a couple times, we generally just remove the account and all posts from the forums without any warning.

    Yes, this is needed. There are too many posts saying "I want to be mod"

    I don't mean people wanting to be mods, but asking to be mods. Sorry, Solorien

    There is no rule forbidding people from wanting to be mods. That would be silly. If you don't like those threads, don't read them! For those people who ask to be mods in spammy, annoying ways... see rule #3.

    What about @Aimster's idiotic thread about not singling out players? Please don't tell me that's one of the rules, without it the drama forum will be dead.

    You should also add something restricting how long your signature sould be. It's getting real long for some people.

    See rule #1.

    And do I really have to point out that calling someone's thread "idiotic" is both unnecessarily aggressive and just plain rude? *sigh*

    There is nothing wrong with fan-fic. Fiction about Growtopia characters is fine as long as it follows the rules: keep it civil and post it in the correct sub-forum.

    Maybe add the rule of not posting twice or more the same thread?

    Maybe add the code for spoilers for those who don't know how to add spoilers onto their signature and/or post.

    It sometimes surprises and amazes me how hard it is to follow such simple rules.

    Much appreciated. Now there's an actual thread for those who claim there's no rules!

    Well it says so when you visit the application threads. People generally get the idea that the forums isn't the place to ask to be a moderator. But I agree, there should be a bit more info for newer forumers. Not trying to bring their hopes down or anything but some people are rather mislead by the whole moderator hype and what have you.

    I was mislead when I was a newbling. I made some cringe worthy posts but I learned. I stayed and decided to be a part of the community. That was my decision.
