    Revised EntropiaForum Rules

    The new direction and relaunch of EntropiaForum has provided an opportunity for a revision of the Forum Rules.

    With EntropiaForum no longer serving as the primary community site (or 'unofficial official Entropia Universe community forum' as some described it in the past), several of the more unpopular rules have been relaxed, or removed entirely.

    Some rules have also been revised to reflect the expansion of Entropia Universe with new planets and Planet Partner officials. Others have been edited slightly to address issues that caused problems on EntropiaForum in the past.

    Below is a summary of the changes that have been made.

    Removed Rules:

    3.8 - Quitting/Leaving
    Any threads or posts about leaving Entropia Universe or EntropiaForum, such as “I’m Quitting” or “Taking a Break” whether for positive or negative reasons, WILL BE DELETED without notice. This rule applies especially to sales threads. If you are leaving Entropia Universe and are selling your items, DO NOT include comments in your sales thread that indicate that you are quitting or taking a break. Members who are curious about the intentions of the thread starter can inquire via a private message, or within Entropia Universe.

    ______________________________________________

    3.9 - Addressing Mindark
    Addressing MindArk directly in thread topics or titles is NOT permitted. EntropiaForum is a privately owned website that has the honor of periodic visits and announcements from MindArk representatives. However, EntropiaForum is NOT an official MindArk or Entropia Universe website, so please do NOT address MindArk directly. MindArk representatives are under no obligation to respond to any threads, posts or private messages. Similarly, please do NOT send support questions to any of the MindArk representatives who visit EntropiaForum. Please use the support section of the official EntropiaUniverse.com website for support requests.


    Revised Rules:

    1.5 - Impersonation
    You may NOT impersonate other Entropia Universe participants, Forum Staff, MindArk representatives, real-world persons, celebrities or public figures.
