forum rules

When you sign up for WAKFU, you agree to follow certain rules.
These rules exist to maintain a pleasant atmosphere and optimize each player's experience. Players should know that if they choose to disobey these rules, they expose themselves to sanctions.

Here is a general introduction.

Rules of good conduct in forums

Access to and participation in WAKFU forums is a privilege that we offer to members of the community. We ask you to follow some rules to make sure the forums are enjoyable for everyone.
Anyone who does not follow these rules should be aware that they can be sanctioned. Sanctions include temporarily or permanently blocking forum access and permanently closing your player account.

The right to post on the forum is reserved for registered WAKFU players; however, anyone can read forum posts. Consequently, Ankama Games wishes its forums to be free of any illegal, threatening, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, racist, or objectionable content.

To this end, Ankama reserves the right to delete, move, or modify any content published on its forums, as well as to block or limit access to its forums without warning or explanation.

Below, you will find a non-exhaustive list of instructions that must be followed.

Before posting:

  • Do a search to check if a discussion on the same topic already exists, or if the information you are looking for exists elsewhere.
  • Please also be aware of the rules for the sub-forum in which you are posting.

When you post, you must:

  • Respect other players, moderators, and Ankama staff
  • Pay attention to spelling when posting and do not use SMS-type abbreviations
  • Do not spam or flood the forum with off-topic comments
  • Expand your answers; the forum is not a chat
  • Be polite and courteous
  • Post in English
  • Use the correct forum sections
  • Do not post in an old topic thread just to move it back to the top
    This practice is called bumping, necroposting, or reviving a topic. Note: An answer that moves a topic back to the top in a constructive manner is not considered necroposting, especially if it is done after a search and to avoid a duplicate post.

Regarding authorized links:

Only sites that follow the fan site/guild forum rules and advertising rules are allowed to post their link on the forum.

It is forbidden to:

  • Spam or flood the forum with off-topic comments.
    Practices such as "bumping" or "necroposting" are considered spam.
  • Use SMS language (abbreviations are allowed within reason).
  • Promote illegal or pornographic content.
  • Refer to a forum user's private life (including staff members) without their consent, or to cause harm.
  • Attempt in some way to damage the forum's integrity.
  • Denounce or use the forum to denounce conduct that does not respect game or forum rules, mentioning a player's personal information such as an account pseudonym or character name. Notify the team directly through Ankabox.
  • Save in exceptional circumstances (such as an event in agreement with CCMs), it is forbidden to incite the community to negative actions towards the game, threaten other players, or lead a manhunt against players, characters, or guilds whose name you have given for this purpose.
  • Divulge information considered private by Ankama staff.
  • Send huge private messages to players or admins that exceed size limits.
  • Answer topics with an account other than your primary account, if the primary account has been sanctioned and is not allowed to post. Using a secondary account when your main account has been sanctioned or banned qualifies as bypassing a sanction and can result in a definitive ban from our forums.
  • Put an image signature at the end of your messages.
  • Conduct surveys or petitions that are not approved by Ankama.

Rules of good conduct in forums

Some sub-forums are governed by rules which are slightly different from the rules for other sections of the forum. Although the basic rules stay the same, some rules may be different, or there may be extra rules depending on the sub-forum in question.

Economy & Professions

Buying and selling items is forbidden.

Guilds

You can create one topic only per guild where you can present your guild and discuss any other topic that concerns the guild.
All duplicates will be deleted without notice. This presentation must be polished, developed, and cannot be a call for recruitment.

Politics Section

If you're looking for a guild and you want to announce it on the forum, we've created a dedicated topic for this purpose.
Any topics from players looking for a guild will be considered duplicates and will be deleted without warning.

This section is not intended for every kind of complaint and event. Only programs and events related to politics, alliances, and wars can be discussed. Any topic that breaks this rule will be deleted without warning.

Stories and role-playing

This section is intended solely for roleplay and character backgrounds. Any topic that breaks this rule will be deleted without warning.

You can report any topic or answer that violates the rules directly on the forum, by clicking on the "Report" link that appears on every topic and answer. This feature exists to facilitate moderation and should not be used if the message follows the rules. Any abuse of the reporting feature can be punished with a warning.

We ask you not to respond to people who do not respect the forum rules, in order to not add to a prohibited topic. Similarly, we ask you not to engage in pseudo moderation. If there is a problem, we ask that you report the topic or answer, and if necessary contact a moderator or administrator in order to notify them of the problem. Attempting to reason with the violator could actually encourage him or her in the prohibited action.

Here are some rules and advice for reporting topics and answers.

You can

  • Report a duplicate topic or message by linking to the original topic.
  • Report a single infraction by linking to several infractions by the same person.
  • Report a topic to request that it be closed.
  • Report one or several broken links in the same topic to us.

Please do not:

  • Report any topics or messages from flooders. If you tell us someone is flooding the forum by putting a few links in the report, we can intervene on all topics or messages from the reported person.
  • Report a topic or message because the reported person insulted you or acted inappropriately towards you outside of the forum (for example, by PM or in-game).
  • Report a topic or message just because it contradicts your opinion.
  • Report to ask our opinion in a debate.
  • Report to let us know about a grammatical error we made when we wrote on the forum. Contact us through Ankabox.
  • Report non-stop to get noticed by the moderation team.
  • Report and notify the reported person that he or she has been ... reported.
