- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.

- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.

- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    Seems kind of random to get that message spammed to the entire player base. Some kind of banhammer coming through?

    Lol good bye to half of who is still playing. Lol
    I agree though maybe a big ban is coming. It’s always been a rule here so I’m not sure why it had to be said again. But we shall see. 😂

      I got an iPhone X for Christmas, then I got this message later, figured it was a warning thinking I had shared, but I ignored it because if it was a warning I don’t share so no biggie and if it was something coming down the pipe I would have to deal with it via support when it did.

        its probably to stop account selling or people selling then robbing someone by taking the account back, they probably are fed up of disputes over this behind the scenes, this is something that rears its ugly head on just about every social free to play game ever made at some point.

          Prior to the binding lock this was pretty rampant. I know a few in bigger empires who had accounts go completely dead when that was implemented. Those players build toons specifically to sell them. It happens all over. Once their ability to transfer them easily was taken away they cut and run. To some, playing games and selling accounts is a full time job.

          Then there is the case of a player who I won't name here who actually preys upon unsuspecting players here. They send an unsolicited PM to players offering them a huge amount of money for their toon. If the player bites and sends the info, that player cancels the transaction scamming the player they solicited. I am *hoping* that the in-game notice here is just a means of letting that player know that all his efforts are about to become fruitless.

            Well one of the biggest toons in this game was purchased from Space of RM and they did nothing about that. They would lose a huge amount of revenue if they kicked all the toons that had been sold or transferred

              It was probably a server glitch. Sometimes when things get rebooted commands stuck in cache can accidentally get sent. In addition they could have been testing the messaging system and thought they were in “developer” mode and didn’t intend to send it to the live game.

                Maybe a ban will happen soon to all toons caught selling toons, build and play your own. I'm not a buyer or seller but something needs to happen. I always wondered how these big level 2-3ks seem to appear and never seen em before. Do the devs build and sell toons on side ��

                  I let this thread be but please do not attack the GAEA Developers or their credibility.

                  I have voiced my fair share of complaints on bought toons and empires that are guilty of alot of what this thread mentioned that allows certain players to be able to play the game on equal terms with honest players today. I have personally championed the fight against cheaters/hackers/loaders/harassers in the game over the years but only battle i won was having PA implement the ability to block people to chat you in game during the era of major hackers/cheaters back in 2013.

                  This is a sensitive topic that causes chaos on the forums so i hope we can keep this thread civil and on point without attacking GAEA devs or name calling the cheater/bought accounts in game.

                  For each Developer that owned this game, they have handled the cheaters differently. PA had the highest ban wave in 2013/14 (which made me spend tens of thousands of dollars on this app to support it) while the last owners of the game handled things their own way (less than $200 in the year 2017 from me and they were mostly promos, should be less than $100 but i wanted Rupture). Current owners are doing their best i believe to tackle cheaters. I have been provided with various reasons on how the handling of banning accounts occur by all owners of the game since it's inception till the present. The justification i was given during the last ban wave by previous game owner however is something i will never forget. Lets hope when proof is provided that Gaea will take care of the matter swiftly or that Gaea is also investigating things their own way.

                  All i can say from a Mod perspective is for players to keep thread civil and maybe voice suggestions to improve the game or tackle cheaters and send reports of cheaters to support or Duke with proof (or me if you like to follow up with Duke). From a Player perspective I would say honest players should only spend money they won't miss.

                  Maybe when i retire as a Mod, I will finally break my silence on a lot of things(good and bad) about the game and forums/people that my 4(+) years as GG has shown me in a good bye post (Not today, Flamers/ Trolls ).

                  I share the concerns of honest players more than they can imagine and encourage all to report cheaters to support or Duke and then see if they take action or not provided the report has proof.

                  Cheers.

                    Seriously? We never sell our accounts.
                    And we recommend you not sharing/trading accounts, those will make your property unsafe.

                      good to hear that, just so u all know i was not attacking any dev or the credibilty of any dev.... ( at least my warning said i attacked dev's ) i had a question and duke answered it. A honest question i had on my mind at the moment.

                        I can understand that, that it popped up, considering something somewhat similar happened in the past by a previous dev in a different company (fp sales at a lower cost)
                        It will always lure.
                        That being said I trust current devs here not to be involved in anything questionable what so ever. They seem to be very reliable on that front to me.
