The Rules is a list of, as it sounds, rules. All of them must be followed by all users on PFQ, as breaking them may result in a warning or Account Lock. If a user has questions about the Rules, they can be asked in the Questions about Site Rules thread.
These are the rules displayed upon sign up, and are a more simplified version of the PFQ rule-set. The entire list of rules can be found in the Rules thread.
- This site is intended to be child-friendly with parental guidance.
- Treat others with respect.
- You may only make one account; if you already have an account, don’t make another.
- Only you may use your account, and you may not use others’ accounts.
- No cheating, including but not limited to: no bots, auto-clickers, macros, auto-refreshers, etc.
- No SPAM, whether in the forums, in chat, or through Personal Messages. This includes advertising and untagged spoilers.
- Player-made rules may not override site rules.
- If someone else is locked, it's not your business!
- British laws apply.
- “I didn’t read the rules” is not a valid excuse.
