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.

  • CYO Offences Rules and Regulations

    Hey Everyone!!

    CYO RULES:
    • Copyright/trademark infringement:
      Just because something is on the internet does not mean that it is available to copy and/or alter.
      It is your responsibility to make sure that the item is available for use. (Uploading onto the site is not considered 'personal use' even if you are just using it for your doll and not putting it in your shop.) That may mean looking for the original and checking to see if it is copyrighted or trademarked, or it may mean contacting the owner of the copyright/trademark to get permission to use it. It is your responsibility to keep the proof for each image.
    • CYO theft:
      Copying and/or altering an item/items from CYO designers without permission is not allowed.
      It is your responsibility to get permission from the designer and keep proof of that permission before uploading anything onto the system. Whether you are planning to sell, auction or keep if for your own use. If you cannot get permission from the designer, you cannot use it.
    • Copying and/or altering Boutique items:
      Although DC Mall items are available for download, the Boutique items are not.
      You may download and modify Boutique items after they have been added to the Mall. But while they are still in the Boutique, they are considered to be exclusive to the Boutique and modification and selling of Boutique items should be reported as a CYO theft and will be dealt with accordingly.
    • Inappropriate images:
      If the image is not allowed on the forums, it is not allowed to be uploaded. (Nudity, violence, drug use.)
    • Names on items:
      Guild names are not allowed in Guild events (Guild Battles, GOC, Guild War). Usernames are not allowed on that user's doll in any events.
      It is highly recommended that they not be used on any items. If you upload an item for someone with their username or Guild name on it and they use it inappropriately, both of you will be punished.



    Here are a few rules for this section:

    RULES FOR REPORTING
    • Please create a new thread in this section.
    • Please title your post after the user you are reporting (for organizational purposes).
    • Clearly state what the offense is in your post.
    • Be sure to include a screenshot of the item. If you are unsure about how to make a screenshot, click HERE for a tutorial.
    • Include any timestamps and URLs you can. If you are unsure how to get the timestamp for your item, click HERE. If you are reporting a copyright infringement, please include the URL of the original item if you can. If you are unsure how to get the URL, click HERE. We need as much information as you can provide about the item you are reporting and the original (designer name, shop URL, copyright holder, ...).
    • The threads in this section are only visible to staff so you will not see your thread after you post, but you'll receive a pm from Security when we've dealt with the offense.


    To report CYO theft involving CYO Bundles in any way, please click HERE.

    IMPORTANT:
    Once created the CYO designs are owned by the creator and as the owner, she/he can do whatever she/he wants with the designs (including giving permission for another user to copy and/or alter them).

    However, if this permission is not given by the owner, please be advised that the punishment and fines for these offences are severe and harsh.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please PM fashionchallenged.

    Thank you
