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.

  • 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.

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.

  • Help my birthday is comming up!

    My birthday is next week and my parents are annoyed that I don't know what I want for a present (yes that's right they are annoyed that I don't desire anything new)
    The things I do want are too expensive to ask someone else to buy for me. I am not gonna ask someone for a €300,- necklace or a new car.

    The thing is when I make a list nobody actually buys anything that is on the list. When I don't have a list everyone complains that I don't have a list. In the end I end up with gifts that I don't like while pretending that I do every year. This year I don't really look forward to my birthday at all.

    I don't think I have an advice for you I am afraid.

    But I kind of understand your frustration. My family is the same way. They use a wishlist as inspiration. I end up with things that are similar to what is in my list but not similar in the way I liked the item. So instead of the movie I wanted, I get the video game (not really into video games and it was not the type of game I am good at or enjoy); instead of the v neck sweater in the color I liked, I get a turtleneck in a different color.

    They seem to want everyone to collect something - we fall back on that. This person gets tiki mugs or shirts, this person gets things related to tea or different chai tea, that person gets something with bugs on it, ... I used to get lots of things with cats on them. So maybe if you like something a lot they could shop for things related to that? Then you don't have to fill out a wishlist and they don't have to pretend that it isn't the 'hunt for the perfect present' (if they weren't 'hunting' they would get you exactly what was on your list...).

    I started putting books that looked interesting on my wishlist. Trying for subjects I liked or am interested in - then when I get something different, it might still interest me. (But not actually authors I read because then I might get books I already have.) Ones I am really not interested in reading go into the local little library or to a thrift store. (I still do get things with cats on them...)

      Oh yeah gifting the right thing is sometimes difficult, but where I live it's quite common to gift vouchers/giftcards or even money. Even though some might think it's not personal, it is a great gift and you never fail.
      For example in the big shopping centers they have joint giftcards one can spend in any shop in tht shopping center. If you want electronics, shoes, clothes, makeup, books, toys, jewelry, etc.. One can use just the giftcard or add whatever amount on top and buy anything he or she needs.
      If we know a certain friend is saving money for some special expensive holiday, we collect money and gift them that, it's not covering even half of the amount, but we know it will help a friend get closer to the needed expense.
      I rather see I'm being gifted money or giftcards than something I don't need, at least I can buy myself a new pair of shoes and exactly the ones I want, so when I'm asked what I want (and I mostly have no idea) I just tell them »giftcard« :)
