1) No profanity, inappropriate material, or content.

This is a family friendly game; we have players of all ages, including children. Do not post links to sites that have content rated more "mature" than PG-13 (Some PG-13 content, swearing and partial nudity in particular, is prohibited from the boards.). Any material that is pornographic, sexually explicit, graphically violent (detailed descriptions of violence include describing/referencing torture, vicious acts of physical brutality, etc), visually offensive, derogatory, or discriminates on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, color, creed, religion, lifestyle, or, any other material (includes nudity and offensive pictures) that may be deemed as objectionable in a public community environment is strictly prohibited.
Profanity is strictly prohibited. Use of foul language, including swear words, real-world racial slurs, alternate spellings, and other language that is not consistent with the fantasy environment will be considered a disruption.
Any swearing, whether spelled out, placed in an acronym, and/or censored, or placed in a graphical image/offsite link, is prohibited.


2) No illegal content.

This includes linking to any sites that may violate the rules. If you have any doubts whatsoever about the appropriateness of the content you want to post, don't post it. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Adult-oriented content
  • Content that breaks any laws
  • Copyright infringement (many MP3s, ROMs, etc.), passwords, serial numbers, etc.
  • Gambling and drugs
  • Hacking materials and information
  • Selling SFE Characters (property of SpaceFable Entertainment).
  • Terrorism (promotion/carrying it through)
  • Trojans, viruses, worms, and other such harmful things

3) You must not harass or abuse others.

Harassment is defined as specifically targeting another player or group of players to harm or inconvenience them. As harassment can take many forms, the moderators will make a determination as to whether or not a "reasonable person" would feel harassed and act accordingly. Actions which would be considered abuse include but are not limited to:

  • 3.1) Sexual Abuse or Harassment

Untoward and/or unwelcome advances of a graphic and sexual nature - PMs: If someone tells you to stop PMing them and includes a reason, you stop. If you do not, it will be considered harassment.

  • 3.2) Attempting to Defraud

Creating false information with the intent of harming another and/or receiving benefits as a result - This includes reporting player misconduct without basis for it.

  • 3.3) Personal Abuse

Includes but is not limited to sending excessive private messages or e-mails to a moderator or staff member, making physical threats, or using abusive language against a moderator.


4) No trolling.

Trolling is posting with the intent to cause a negative reaction in an individual or group of people. This can take the form of pointlessly spamming a thread or a more directed form of posting something you know is likely to upset them. If you don't have any serious things to contribute to the conversation, stay out of it. In other words, do not post anything intended to provoke someone into replying negatively.


5) No spamming.

Please keep threads on a topic related to the board you are posting in, and replies relevant to the topic you are replying to.


6) Trick links and pranking.

Trick links (Saying a link will show someone something, but then actually linking to something else) are not allowed. Trick links of a malicious nature (browser hijacking links, for example) will be severely punished, even for a first offense.
Pranking is also not allowed. Pranking is posting anything which you claim is truthful even though you know it to be false. (For example, posting that a release is live or that a certain item has been made rare when you know the statements to be false.)


7) Staff may delete/lock Threads at their discretion.

Part of the job of moderators is to keep the boards clean. Messages deemed inappropriate, old, or off topic may be deleted/locked by moderators at any time.


8) Only Posts that are available to the Public.

That means no staff-only items or unreleased items. Any unreleased information or information gathered through cheating will not be tolerated. If anyone does publish such information in any way or form, they will lose their ability to post on this wiki. This applies to all items and details when they are obtainable only through illegal methods such as cheating. Staff only items are considered unobtainable and therefore should not be added to the wiki.

That also means that personal pages, fanfiction, clans, and the like do not have a place on this site. This Wiki is an encyclopedia that documents in-game features — anything else is irrelevant and will be deleted.


9) Please be accurate.

It is a pain for everyone if people do not follow templates or post inaccurate information. This is not a race, so please check and recheck all information you post for new releases, and make sure they follow the same format as the majority of other similar categorical entries.
