Welcome to the official FatherIO forum, this is a place for everyone to discuss and talk about the game. By using this forum, you agree to the following rules to keep this forum a civil place.
Treat other members with the respect they deserve. This should go without saying, but treat others like you would like to be treated !
The forum language is English only. Please only post in other languages in PM or along with it's english translation (Google translate would do). We are tinkering with the idea of having foreign language sub-forums and will update this rule accordingly.
Spamming/Cross-posting is not allowed.
Spam is the posting of advertisements, abusive, or unneeded messages on Internet forums. 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. There is a report button on every post, please use it if you are concerned about a post or topic.
Bumping a question more than once is also considered spam here.
Crossposting is asking the same question via starting a topic in more than one section of this forums. Please note the different sections and try to post in the appropriate section.
Please do not post threads text in all CAPITALS since this is considered to be shouting and is not necessary.
Insulting and flaming or personal attacks against forum staff will be not tolerated.
Please be considerate in language you use on the forum, some of our members are younger than others. Swearing is not completely banned, just do not swear unnecessarily, and only use minor words. A filter is in place to safeguard this system.
No hacking, and illegal activity, such as torrents and illegal downloads, this will not be tolerated, and if appropriate, may be reported to local authority.
Please do not post inappropriate material, I think everyone understands what I 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 !
No advertising on the forum or chat. Contests and give aways 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 the moderators.
Remember that any link or text posted will be checked by our moderators and action will be taken if they feel the need to do so.
What happens if I break a rule ?
Depending on the severity of the infraction, a different course of action may be taken, but the usual practice is as follows :
1st rule break (Minor offence):
Corrected, A PM may of been sent, no further action taken
For a more serious offence, a warning will be issued, this is a mark against your name letting us know you have broken a rule
2nd rule break:
On your 2nd warning, you will receive a temporary ban, the length of which will depend on the severity of the incident.
On 3rd breach:
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.
If you have any questions regarding the rules feel free to PM any member of site staff, who will be able to clear things up for you.
