Each forum has a name and a brief description with them. This makes information easier for people to find if they have a similar question or are interested in the same things.
We reserve the right to move, remove, or close any post for any violations or reasons we deem necessary. (Disciplinary action will be taken on a case-by-case basis depending on the severity)Inappropriate/Non PG Rated Discussions

This is an English speaking forum, you are welcome to speak other languages in PM, but use English when posting.Flaming
Flaming is a hostile and insulting interaction between Internet users. Any post intended to incite a reaction from another user is not constructive, does not clarify a discussion, and does not persuade others. Flamers wish to upset and offend other members of the forum. We refer to these types of posters as "trolls". This is not allowed in any of the forum, posts, private messages, profiles, signatures or avatars.
In plain English, this is the difference between "I disagree, here's why", and "That idea stinks and you are an idiot". Editing is not fun for anyone, including the ones who have to edit you. Remember to treat others as you would like to be treated.Naming Names
Naming someone's name in post that has offended you either in the game or on the forum is not allowed. If someone misbehaves in the game, report them to Disney. If they offend you on the forum, report them to a Moderator or Administrator.Hacking and Hacker Discussions

If they do something that is against the rules, your account could be suspended. (This does not apply to forum Moderators or Administrators.)Impersonation Of Other Users

If a user finds a thread or post that is inappropriate please report the thread or post and let the administration and moderating staff handle the situation.Irritating Posting Styles
