Valenth Official Site and Forum Rules
Welcome to Valenth!
We have a couple rules you should look over before adopting your first pet, or taking part in our forums.
Should you have trouble understanding them in whole or in part, feel free to PM a moderator for help.
P.S. - Despite popular belief, not having read the rules doesn't excuse you from having broken them; you may as well do so and give yourself the upper hand! ;)
Site and Forums Rules
- Valenth is a PG-13 Website
Unlike most other adoptable websites, our content isn't necessarily for children!
Valenth is a Dark Fantasy-Steampunk (or Dreampunk!) world, and as such, heavy topics such as violence, morality, alternate sexuality and drug use may appear in our storylines and settings, along with occasional strong language and adult themes.
We avoid explicit imagery by all means, but the implications are there, and we allow and even encourage our users to discuss and debate them in greater detail on the forums if they wish.
If this makes you uncomfortable, you and your children can easily avoid it by simply adopting our pets here and avoiding the forums and plot updates. :)
The viewpoints expressed by Valenth characters, storylines, concepts and so forth are not necessarily held by Agoge, inc. or its employees.
We're just here to make you think-- and have fun doing it!
- Each user is allowed a MAXIMUM of five accounts! (as of 2nd January, 2013)
If a player is found to have more than five (5) accounts, all of their accounts will be banned.
TEMPORARY GRACE PERIOD POLICY: If you have more than the maximum number of accounts, file a help ticket with a list of all of your accounts, including your designated main account and up to four side accounts, as well as any extras you possess. Extra accounts will be deactivated with no penalty during this temporary grace period.
- Valenth is an English-only Forum (as of 2nd January, 2013)
Unfortunately, we have had multiple issues with users using foreign-language threads to hide bad behaviour and rule-breaking from staff over the last few years. Since we do not possess the resources to monitor such threads on a daily basis, we had no choice but to disallow the use of non-English languages in all public areas of the site.
We sincerely apologise for the inconvenience.
- Adoptables belong in your signature, your profile, or the Public Stables forum!
You're welcome to place a reasonable number of adoptables in your signature (don't exceed the signature size limit-- see below!), and if you want more room than that, you can display them on your profile, or even make your very own feeding and showcase thread in the Public Stables!
- Auto-Click Programs and Websites are NOT allowed!
You are allowed to use browser addons like Snaplinks, which require manual user control to work-- but you do so at your own risk!
We cannot replace adoptables you accidentally delete because of the functionalities of these tools, so be careful!
- Harassing other members is not allowed!
If you have a problem with someone, take it up with them in a PM or make use of the site's ignore features and forget about them!
- Exploiting bugs, glitches, giveaways, and multiple accounts will result in a ban!
- No Spamming!
To keep from spamming, edit your posts if you have something new to add and no one has responded to you yet, and try to keep the topic of the post you're replying to in mind! Don't beg for things or post your adoptables outside of the allowed areas, either.
Note that necroing posts-- responding to boards that haven't been answered for a while-- is totally okay here!
If you want to renew a conversation, go for it. :)
- The Trades are for Trading!
However, using the trades to show off, or share your opinions with the site is not. Find a suitable forum for your soapbox-- there are plenty to choose from! The Trading Post forum exists for trade and service advertisements, too-- please make use of it!
Valenth Guidelines and Tips
Keep these guidelines and tips in mind while you explore Valenth!
- Signatures should be a maximum of 150 pixels tall.
This includes all adoptables, banner graphics, text, etc-- smaller is better!
If you're not sure what 150 pixels looks like, reference this handy banner; your entire signature should fit within it, heightwise.
- Issues with Cash Shop credits should be reported through the ticket system.
- A variety of friendly users and staff and helpful features are available when you need them.
Please enjoy your time around Valenth-- welcome, and thanks for playing! :)
