    One of my friends got banned for having the word thot in his world. Also about the stories, it's not bad to have serious topics in a childrens' game. Just not too serious, things will get out of hand that way.

    If you want a similar experience to Growtopia without rules and moderators I suggest Terraria and Junk Jack. They are games you have to buy but if you and a friend both own it you can play together. They are not massively multiplayer just multiplayer and don't have frequent updates and events.
    there is nothing like growtopia the graphics is way different i prefer growtopia's also all of our memory from 2013-2015(good years) are in growtopia.

    Ik, this thread is old but it's funny how I was banned about a week ago for quote on quote "Inappropriate and harsh language" and anyone who doesn't believe me I would send a pic of the mod telling me this to support but I am not allowed to. Shows that the whole GT community/mods only care about famous people. You really think if someone like MrSongo was swearing they would perma ban him like they did to me? Then when I try to make a thread trying to get someone to help everyone says "Go contact support, we cant help you" but if it was someone famous they would be all over him trying to save his butt. And the thing that gets me the most: i was never even given a warning, I was silenced then a day later perma banned. That doesn't make much sense does it? Getting silenced and while silenced getting perma banned? Wasn't the silence a warning basically? I was never unsilenced so i couldn't have kept doing wrong and swearing? Just my opinion. Ik no one cares but just wanted to get it off my chest.

    I don't know who spread th rumor, but it's totally wrong, even few months ago one famous youtuber got perma banned because of swearing, i don't really remember his name but he had around 70-100k subscribers. But also about your problem(if it's true (only swearing)), perma ban is too much i think, it's should be max 30days duct tape. So, they also ban famous players if they break the rules..

    This is a blatant lie. I have multiple friends who have been suspended by a specific moderator from the Canadian support staff, and that same Canadian support staff member replied to their ban appeal emails.

    Without going into further detail about the specifics of our system, you do have the option to appeal a ban or suspension.

    A moderator that handled the in-game sanction could be answering the ticket as well since we cover different times.

    You're always welcome to appeal and ask that someone else look into your case while providing us with more information.

    That said, it's rare that appeals are legitimate. We also will not continue to respond if we have made it very clear that the punishment will remain.

    if people swears do they get banned forever? or if you have a world that has story that is not for kids and its closed for months will you get suspended forever?
    Sometimes it can go over the top, i agree with you with that, but the purpose of doing so is to at least remove these players out of the community before any negative harm can be done or spread.

    There is a somewhat valid reason for Growtopia's extremely harsh punishment system, and that is the game's indended audience. In order to keep the game rated as "y12" or whatever it is, it has to be a clean and inviting place for children to attend.

    The average age of a forumer is well above twelve, but you have to remember 90% of the playerbase who you don't really see and are just children playing the game.

    Despite all of this, I am not sure if I have seen a single MMO with such a strict punishment system other than perhaps Roblox, who has an even younger target audience.

    In the end, you must remember Ubisoft's best interests will always be put before the community, because if those fall, there won't be a game to play in the first place.

    I never got a warning a few years back , I did it once and got taped for 7 days instantly without warning..

    Depends on the circumstances.
