Forum Rules


Welcome to our forum rules! The forums are a great place to talk and formalise ideas and suggestions with the community We encourage you to be active! Each rule if broken will equal a certain amount of warning points for a certain amount of time. If you get 8 warning points you will be forum banned. So make sure you are up to date with these rules as they can change. Anything that is punishable in-game is also punishable here on the forums, these listed below are specific to the forums.



Please be aware that these rules, and the sanctions for the rules, are entirely at the discretion of the Island Clash team. They may be changed or updated at any time without notice. If you believe a staff member is abusing their role please contact @Beth about this

privately.



The forums are for more formal discussions about the server. If you want to chat casually, go to discord. You will be punished accordingly if you are using this as a social hub.


If you see someone breaking rules please tell staff rather than trying to enforce rules yourself.


Post or Like farming / boosting: Please make sure what you're posting adds substance to the discussion, quality is more important than quantity. Make use of the 'like button'. Similarly don't ask for likes on posts/threads/signatures.

-

Obviously keep foul language of any kind out of discussions. This also includes arguing/starting drama. The forums are not a place for this.

-

Micro-posting: Replying or posting with less than 3 words which doesn't add anything of value to the topic.

-

Don’t post any off topic or irrelevant/pointless content: this includes threads or replies. Make sure your thread is in the right section!

-

Don’t double post: This is posting a thread and/or reply twice in a row without anyone posting between them! Make use of the edit button.

-

Don’t Necro-post; this is replying to any thread that has been inactive (not replied to) for over 2 weeks!* This also applies to bumping your own thread.

-

Any "I am quitting" or "I am coming back" threads will be deleted or hidden. They are spammy and unnecessary. Please use your profiles to do such things.

-

Don’t plagiarise; this is copying other people’s ideas or words and using them as if they were your own (this mainly applies to moderator applications).

-

Advertising YouTube Channels/videos, Twitch channels/streams or any other video service is not allowed, unless it has Island Clash Content and is in the correct forums section.

-

Any posts overusing bold, italics or huge font size or excessive bright font colour may be deleted.

-

Names and avatars: Don't impersonate other members of the server, this also includes the Staff/Management team. No inappropriate usernames/avatars also.
