Forum/Chat Rules & Guidelines


#1

Welcome to the official Father.io community! This is a place for everyone to discuss and talk about the game. By using this forum or the official discord chat, you agree to the following rules to keep the forum and chat a civil place.


Community Rules

  1. Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but the golden rule always applies! Treat others as you would like to be treated!

  2. The main forum and chat language is English only. Please only post in other languages in PM or along with its English translation (Use Google Translate: https://translate.google.com/ or something similar).
    We are currently tinkering with the idea of having foreign language sub-channels where you can talk in that language and will update this rule accordingly.

  3. Spamming/Cross-posting is not allowed.

  4. Spam is the posting of advertisements, abusive, or unneeded messages on Internet forums and chat rooms regardless of quantity.
    Off topic comments, or posts that have little or no relevance to the subject being discussed, repetitive threads, or a post that does not contribute to the thread may be considered spam.

  5. Bumping a question more than once on the forums is also considered spam.

  6. Cross posting is asking the same question via starting a topic in more than one section of this forum. Please note the different sections and try to post in the appropriate section.

  7. On the forum, there is a report button on every post. Use it if you’re concerned about a post!

  8. Please do not post in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. This is considered to be shouting and is not necessary.

  9. Insulting, flaming, or personal attacks will be not tolerated under any circumstances!

  10. Please be considerate with the language that you use within the forum and chat. Some of our members are younger than others. Swearing is not completely banned; please don’t swear unnecessarily, and only use such language sparingly. A filter is in place on the forum to safeguard this system.

  11. No hacking or illegal activity. This includes hacking, selling illegal goods, and linking to illegal content. This will not be tolerated, and will result in a permanent ban! If deemed appropriate, such activity will be reported to local authorities.

  12. Please do not post inappropriate material, I think everyone understands what we mean by this. The policy goes that if you would not feel comfortable viewing it at work, or in front of children or parents, don’t post it!

  13. No advertising on the forum or chat. Contests and giveaways can be posted if none of the above rules are broken and if they are introduced and explained properly. Random links with generic text will be considered spam and deleted by moderators without warning.

  14. Remember that any link or text posted will be checked by our moderators. Actions may be taken if they deem it appropriate.

What happens when you break a rule?

Depending on the severity of the infraction, a different course of action may be taken. However, the usual practice is as follows:

1st rule break * (Minor offence):*

You will be corrected, A PM may be sent, and no further action will be taken.

[For a more serious offence, a warning will always be issued. This also helps us record that you have broken a rule.]

2nd rule break*:*

On your 2nd warning, you will receive a temporary ban or mute on the forum or chat, depending where you broke the rule. The length of which will depend on the severity of the incident

3rd rule break*:*

After this it will be assumed you will not learn your lesson, so you will receive a permanent ban, meaning you will never be able to visit the forum again.
When you have received a permanent ban you can apply for a second chance by mail.

If you have any questions regarding the rules feel free to PM any member of site staff or contact them on the official Father.io Discord chat for more information.
