Diva Chix Rules

General Rules
  • Familiarize yourself with the Terms Of Service.
  • You are only allowed to have ONE account per member. If you are banned from Diva Chix, you are not allowed to make a new account. That one will just be banned as well.
  • You are not allowed to bully, defame, distress, abuse, harass, stalk, or threaten members. This includes via guestbooks, messaging, private messages, forums, your own profile or any other method.
  • You are not allowed to ask for someone else's password, or give your password to anyone else. Protect your password as you would on any site. Diva Chix is not responsible for any damage to your account due to lost, stolen or shared passwords.
  • We strongly advise against all trading and/or begging and do not support the Gift feature being used in this manner. You are setting yourself up to potentially be scammed. If you fall victim to any sort of partnership/trading gone wrong, you are solely responsible - it will not be our responsibility and your stats/clothing will not be restored.
  • Do not partake in any scam activity such as sites offering free stats for Diva Chix. They are just after your password and account. You are responsible for your account at all times, if you become victim of one of these scams, we will not rectify the problem.
  • Advertising threads, shops, debates, cliques or anything else outside of member services or allocated places on the forum is considered spam and is not allowed.
  • Please type in English - the moderators need to be able to understand exactly what you are saying.
  • Do not spam the site. For those of you who do not know what spam is please read the following points:
    • Typing gibberish that makes no sense.
    • Constantly repeating messages.
    • Constantly repeating links.
  • Chain letters that contain false information are prohibited. You are not allowed to post these anywhere on the site or forum.
  • “I am leaving Diva Chix” threads are not allowed. This is because they are spam, and generally only for attention-seeking. If you are leaving DC, you may post that information on your profile.
  • Please respect the staff at all times. Insubordination will not be tolerated. If you have a problem with any given staff member please speak to their superior.
  • You are not allowed to imitate staff for any reason.
  • Please do not 'mini mod', this includes pretending to be a mod and enforcing rules.
  • For your own safety, please do not give out your last name, address, telephone number, school name, or any other personally identifiable information. Diva Chix will not be held accountable.
  • Strictly no links to inappropriate websites are allowed such as sites containing sexual, crude content/illegal activity.
  • Do not post any illegal content - such as, underage drinking, doing drugs, theft, etc.


SEXUAL CONTENT
  • Graphic or obscene sexual talk is prohibited. It is inappropriate and is not allowed here.
  • No sexual-related material of any sort (text, pics, music, etc)


Graphics & CYO
  • Do not claim other members’ CYO creations, edit and/or upload and sell them as your own.
  • Do not claim other members’ graphics as your own or use without crediting the creator (unless it is already tagged).
Event Rules




You are not allowed to:
  • Post info about a current event you are in. This includes posting your opponent's name, a description of the opponent doll, or the score of the event.
  • Ask people to specifically vote on your events.
  • Attempt in any way to influence the outcome of an event.
  • Cheat in anyway possible to win an event.
  • Use your name/username/guild name in events involving opponents.
  • Use family accounts to aid or advance you in any shape or form within the game.
  • Cast more than 75% negative votes in events to influence the outcome of the result.
Language
  • Profanity is ok to use on Diva Chix, however it won't be tolerated when used against another member, speaking about another member, or towards staff. Stronger profanity (such as the f word and sexual slang) will automatically be bleeped out by our system, and must not be circumvented by typing the forbidden word in another manner.
  • For the sake of appearance, refrain from posting any profanity (even masked) in thread titles.
  • While it is ok to use profanity, we respectfully ask that you don't spam the site with excessive profanity just for the sake of doing so. If it looks extreme and excessive, the staff reserves the right to censor it.
Please note that each section of the forum has its own rules that you must adhere to. Check the section rules regularly,they can be found in the stickies in each section. (A sticky is a pinned thread at the top of each forum).


As the site progresses and new features are implemented, the senior management will update the rules as necessary.

  • How to Report

    WHY AND WHAT TO REPORT

    These are the Site Rules and the site Terms of Service. In addition, each forum section may have their own rules in place.

    Security is here to enforce the rules so players have a safe and pleasurable experience playing. But sometimes people break the rules. Staff does not see everything all the time, so we rely on players to report the rule breakers.

    Providing as much information as possible (including screenshots, URLs, and CYO Timestamps where applicable) will help with the investigation. The quicker the investigation, the faster it will be dealt with. Also, if more information is needed, you will be contacted to provide that information and it will be easier to give the information with your report rather than to try and find/recreate it after the fact.

    Do NOT assume someone else has reported it. We would rather have double reports than no reports.

    Report and let us deal with it. Do not reply. Do NOT contact the person to tell them they are breaking the rules or that you reported them. That will let them know they are being investigated, allow them to try and cover their tracks, and let them know that you reported them.

    You will be contacted when the investigation is complete. You may not be told what punishment was decided upon or how many previous strikes that user had. But that does not mean there wasn't a punishment.

    For information on how to create a screenshot, see HERE.

    HOW TO REPORT:
    There are three methods of reporting.

    1) REPORT BUTTON

    Look around. There may be a report button for what you want to report. If there is, you need to use that as your reporting method. Some of the required information will be sent automatically.

    There are report buttons in different areas of the site. The ones in the forum may appear different from these examples depending on what forum skin you are using. But they will appear similar (look for a ! symbol or the word "report"). If you are not sure if it is the right button or not, hover over the symbol and see if it tells you what it is for.

    For a tutorial on how to report a post in the forums using the report button, see HERE.


    Here are some examples of Report Buttons:
    • on a post in the forums to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts
    • on a blog post or comment in the forums to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts
    • on some areas like Visitor Messages and Social Group posts to report spam, advertising messages, and problematic (harassment, fighting, or rude) posts


    2) REPORT MISCONDUCT FORUM

    In the forums, there is a Report Misconduct section under the Voice of the Community forum that is dedicated to reporting. Each subsection is for a different type of offence.

    The rules for this section are HERE. Once you post a thread anywhere in this section it will be moderated so that only staff can see the thread. It is still there, but you can no longer see it.


    It is important that you read the rules for the specific subsection and provide as much information and proof as possible to help the investigation. This includes URLs and screenshots wherever possible.
    If you are reporting a CYO violation, it is important that you provide Timestamps for both the original item and the stolen item. The Timestamp proves who uploaded the item first. For how to obtain a CYO Timestamp, see HERE.


    3) SUPPORT HELP DESK

    If there is not a Report button and the offence does not fall within one of the categories in the Report Misconduct section, please enter a Help Desk ticket. Again, please provide as much information as possible including screenshots if at all possible. If you do not find a category that you feel describes what you are reporting, please choose the one you feel is closest. We want to see your report and do not mind if the category is wrong. Someone will see it and it will be assigned to the correct person.

    Thank you
