Frequently Asked Questions:
A: No. This is the first thing you are told when you sign up, but for people with short memories and/or attention spans, I reproduce this rule here.
IP sharing is the main evidence in such cases, but is not in an of itself proof of guilt. If you share an IP with other players, you should avoid transfers (particularly one-sided ones) to each other to avoid the appearance of cheating.
A: No. This was allowed in CB1 but it wasn't a good idea; it's disallowed in CB2.
A: Your email address is not displayed until you verify it; once verified, it will be displayed only to other players. (You may also disable email display entirely in Settings.)
CB will only use your email address for password recovery, to warn of impending account deletion for inactivity, or for notifications you request.
CB will never give or sell your contact information to any other party.
A: In an effort to make this game appealing to all ages, it is requested that language, character and minion names, and postings all contain PG language. Please note that strong uses of "God" and "Jesus Christ" are not acceptable. Also, short forms or acronymns of swearing are not allowed. Discussions involving clinical anatomic terms will not be allowed, as the context is almost always "non-PG". Profanity warnings will be issued to those breaking this rule. In extreme cases, you will be reset or banned. Pretty easy really, just keep communications clean.
This applies to non-English languages as well; if in doubt, an op may simply request users to stick to English as the default lingua franca. (You can always take it to PM or a private room if you prefer.)
Just because you heard some swearing in a PG movie, it is still not allowed here. "PG" is a simple guideline that most everyone understands. In reality, it's somewhere between G and PG.
The majority of the people playing the game regularly are adults, so it seems rather silly that the PG rule is in effect. But in another sense, I like it, it means I don't have to worry about people coming in there and bashing each other with "*expletive deleted* your mom" or the more often, "*expletive deleted* your *expletive deleted* with a *expletive deleted* and 15 *expletive deleted*'s and a side of *expletive deleted* with ranch dressing."
It just overall increases the intelligence level of the room, which is something I didn't understand when I first came here.
A: Moderating PG-ness in private rooms is completely up to the discretion of the op. In other words, don't come crying to us because someone offended you in a private room. Just leave.
A: That is what /ignore is for.
A: No. New players and borderline cases will be given warnings before disciplinary action.
Use some common sense, people. If we had such a list, we would have to constantly be updating it or people would use "but it's not on the list" as an excuse. We don't admin this game because we enjoy being the police. Just respect other players and you'll be fine. Is that too much to ask?
A: NO. You may mail an admin if you feel the offense is serious and the offender has not already been taught his lesson by other players.
A: Because a filter like this doesn't fix anything. Even stupid people can figure out how to get around these.
A: No. This includes private chat rooms.
