Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.â€‌
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flameâ€‌, “troll.â€‌ or “hazeâ€‌.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- 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.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- 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.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- 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.

TL;DR - Don't post sensitive Information on Forums

    Not possible- every iDevice is assigned a unique UDID. It is impossible to change the UDID of your device; it's like the HWID of your computer. You can only spoof, or fake, it. Plus, you can only view the UDID directly on the device or in some random settings menu in iTunes.

      Look's it was not Blues fault. When I saw this I did a simple google search and this came up. UWE should managed UDID's better.

      Screenshot that I blacked out Blue's UDID's

        Wow- I didn't even consider just using a site dork on google. He should've given that through IM, not visitor messages.

          Didn't click link, but feel a bit idiotic now. I thought the UDID was referring to that retrieval code you receive via email from UE. Now I'm especially concerned that my iPhone's UDID is vulnerable through PA's app. Can a Dev confirm this as true or not? I use TorBrowser and a VPN on my iPhone whenever I'm on these forums for this exact reason...lol. Do either really protect me?

            Not a dev, but I will toss in my 2 cents. The only way your UDID is vulnerable is if someone physically gets their hands on your device or your iTunes while your phone is plugged in. Or, if you post it somewhere that you shouldn't have. Either way, having a Phoenix Age app on your phone doesn't make a difference. Not sure why you think using Tor and a VPN will help you not have your UDID stolen. Tor is so that people (usually government agencies, as Tor is often used for Website "pen-testing") cannot track traffic by IP - basically, there are no logs kept as your request is sent through many different relays and back another way, so you can't be tracked. VPNs are also for privacy, but are much less private as 95% keep logs and your IP can still be tracked. It's sort of like a proxy, it's pretty easy to see through the proxy to the user's real IP.

              Originally it was in a reply to a post.... I deleted it. However I had no idea he also left it as a Visitor Message. Now deleted as well.

                No Airmid is distracted and mangled two theories together. It was either that someone had his UDID OR they got his account retrieval code from his email. Can't get UDID from email unless someone wrote it in an email.

                    What Matt has said is very true.

                    Your information is safe.... unless you publically post it.

                      Thanks Matt! I use Tor on my computer and VPN on my iPhone whenever I'm on the forums because I have seen many accounts hacked through forums e.g. ninjavideo back in the day. Thanks for heads up about VPNs, I didn't know it was that easy!

                      ETA: HUGE thanks to Airmid and Devs for fast response to this. Impressed.

                        Because I just deleted it =.= ... it was posted as a visitor message to an admin (not me) a long long time ago.

                          I'm pretty sure these games wouldn't be possible to keep hack-free if it WERE possible...I just imagine a mad rush of little hackers grasping to take control of the highest level players CONSTANTLY. lol.

                              Yeah, visitor messages (and archives) show up when using the site dork, to be honest whoever did it probably stumbled upon it accidentally.

                                Any time - and I thought you meant that you use it to avoid getting your UDID jacked. Now that you clarified your intentions it makes some more sense

                                And yeah - look for a VPN that doesn't keep logs, I think there is even a top ten list of ACTUALLY private no-log VPNs on ask.com or something.
