Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]


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.


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.


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


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.
- 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.

    you've missed the golden age of gifting, when did you join CA anyway?

      Ah, nathan, thanks. Didn't see your response.

      Anyone want to send me zenarean crest pcs?

        I joined, crap, maybe year and a half, two years ago, played sporadically due to raising some rugrats alone and work. Work slowed, now I have more free time.

          gifting group (nathan's suggestion) would be the fastest way, i think.

          some of us built our gifting list the old way. recognizing which person gift diligently, and his name moved up the notepad priority list, one that gifts lesser moves down, refine the list everyday.

          i got burnt out sending gift somewhere last year, along with many others. still kept accepting gifts (it's free, why not?) but rarely return anymore (don't send anymore.. i've got enough, halp!)

          back in golden gifting days, daily gift list can go up to 50-70 people.. that's one hella time sucker.

            I'll be happy with a consistent dozen.

              FYI, I would still like the courtesy of knowing who closed my thread and why. Seems I'm on a different tier of import for being a 'noob' huh?

                You're actually not allowed to discuss moderator's actions in the forum; I think your best bet would be to pick any moderator that you like, and send them a PM asking them to tell you who closed your thread so that you can talk to them. The rules do encourage you to PM any mod to discuss their actions. I'm guessing here that each mod can see what the other mods do and so can tell you who you need to contact.

                  I'm not discussing, I'm asking. On my boards, all my mods are required to either post as a last post in the thread or contact the 'offender'.

                  I'm just asking the mod to contact me (as per the rules I should them, but cannot due to the anonymity of the act).

                  The rest of the discussion in this thread does not in any way revolve around a mods actions or inactions.

                    that's why Caidi said you should PM ANY mod and ask them about it.
                    and get your towels here!

                      it's still discussing in these parts.

                      just pm them. mods will tell one another what they did

                        Oddly enough only the mod in question would know they closed your thread. So maybe you are right and we should start posting last so everyone knows why it was closed. Right now that's not a requirement of the moderator staff.

                        You'll get a PM shortly as to the other thread. For this thread, all I can say is that moderator actions should be discussed in PM, not some thread on the forums. That's why I'm closing this one, and you'll just have to wait on a PM for the other one.
