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.”
- 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.
- 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.

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 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.

  • Seriously STOP Posting Your Achievements!

    I want 501 friends as much as anyone else, but, I don't want to see EVERY friggin accomplishment for CA that you get! Try clicking "skip" next time so you don't spam my facebook account.

    If you aren't summoning a dragon and need help... I don't wanna know. Every 5 mins I get some message about how someone finished a quest or reached a certain level ... GRRRR!

    [SIZE="4"]I'm sure other peope feel the same.[/SIZE]

    I guess I can hide you from my facebook homepage, but, then that defeats the whole "call to arms" button when fighting a dragon.

    Plz play CA spam free as much as possible...Thanks!

      Click the HIDE button and stifle CA alerts and you won't have this problem. Yes, it really is that simple, but it does actually require you to make the colossal effort of moving the mouse and clicking the little pulldown menu for hiding updates.

        But then you miss the call to arms for the dragons. You can't just turn CA off if you want to know about the dragons.

          Seriously, this is a good point. It's completely broken to require your Facebook account to allow all CA posts just in order to see 1% that are dragon call to arms. It's just not worth breaking my Facebook account by un-hiding all the "CA friends" (most of whom play a lot of other games whose updates I really don't want to see), in order to see a those few posts.

          There really needs to be a better in-game method for alerting your army that you have a dragon to fight.

            Everyone that I added from the DSU I have in a facebook group. That way I cant see their updates unless I click that group on the homepage.

              I kinda like seeing what friends around the world are doing. Besides, if I have a dragon, seeing their CA posts gives me the opportunity to know who's online so I can message them to come help slay my dragon.

                If that is your thing I guess ... you must not have a huge army here yet. I'm only at 125'ish and not only do I get dozens of messages about CA I get all their stupid crap from Mafia Wars, Fish Bowls, etc, etc.

                I've started hiding their "other" crap so I can only see CA but then I also get their posts to friends...

                There has to be a better way... one where we ONLY see the dragon requests and nothing else. perhaps make the call to arms an in-game message... one that shows up on your "home" page or your "army" page and not on your facebook homepage.

                If anyone knows if this is possible respond so we can see the pros/cons and perhaps I'll post the suggestion in the suggestion forum??

                  I agree, but just for a practical workaround, I suggest putting all of your Castle Age friends on a list that doesn't update your feed (to prevent the spam), and then starting a message thread with a group of players that you actually do communicate with to team up and fight dragons.

                  The legends group is doing this, and it seems to be working well so far.

                    Then you just make the couple EXTRA clicks to go to a person's facebook page and see if they've made a posting about having a dragon. It's really not that big a deal unless you've got eight thousand friends.

                      Which unfortunately some people do have, or at least a thousand or two.

                      An easier way to find dragons would be nice, but it's not like there aren't tons of ways to get a live one now. There are a few groups for dragon spawning/hunting as well as the Add Me section has people daily that spawned dragons you could add to attack. Those, as well as the suggestions from Ragnar, means finding a live dragon isn't that hard. Finding one that is beatable is a tad tougher, but not impossible.

                        do you know how to set up such a list cuz these updates are driving me insane.

                        Also, I realize this isn't in the suggestion forum, but, can the mods create a dragon forum for such postings? It seems people are posting dragon stuff in all the forums right now disguised as questions, etc.

                        edit: nvm I figured it out. however, still a MAJOR pain in the ass! first you have ot move everyone to a separate list THEN you have to alter your news feed so that only true friends show in news feed. Hiding the CA ppl might do the same trick, but, then again you miss out on call to arms requests.

                        I think I'll just delete them all and join a dragon hunting group here which would solve both my problems

                          I switched everyone to a separate group, but, I continue to see updates unless I modify my newsfeed. I already clicked on over 170 ppl to move them to a list now I have to click AGAIN on my newsfeed so they don't show? It's almost easier to just hide them.

                          If you know the secret to having them populate a separate homepage plz pass it on so i can just toggle between them when I wanna look for a dragon. Otherwise I just keep hiding ppl and their stupid requests to join every Effin game on facebook!

                            I eventually had to make lists and start ignoring the main live feed. Currently, I have every friend in face book divided into four lists:
                            Family
                            Friends
                            Castle Age
                            Super Hero City

                            There is SOME cross pollination between games, of course. (I've also moved some of my Castle Age and SHC friends to the actual "Friends" sub-list as I've gotten to know them.)

                            But as soon as I get on FB, i immediately go down the lists, changing the Live Feed.

                            Also, as far as on-line "Chat" goes, you can hide lists from coming up. So all I get there is friends and family who are on line, and not the 300 other people that might be.

                              I made a new list called Real friends, and added all my original friends in that list.
                              you can also place the castle age app under the lists, and only castle age notices will be shown there. you can do it under first page u hit when you login, under the tabs on the left hand side that says : news feed, status updates, links, videos, notes etc etc. click "more" and toy ard. Its pretty easy to fix it.... just need a lil common sense =p

                              this way, you will
                              1) get to read ur friend's news unaffected
                              2) skip out every1 else's new feed
                              3) contract castle age notices to a comfy n sensible summary

                              takes a bit of work, but its worthed it.
