Rules Reminder


We have recently been seeing more and more instances of certain rules being broken and we just want to remind you of a few things...

Cheating
Trying to hack into the server, trying to crack other user's passwords, or otherwise doing something detrimental to the integrity or security of HL is strictly forbidden. Do not use scripts or bots to automate game tasks as they may burden the server. You must report any bugs or exploits you discover using the Petition for Help link. Using bugs or exploits to improve your stats will result in a temp ban and/or having your account locked. Those who report bug abuse or means of doing may receive a reward.


Alternate characters (alts)
You may have UP TO 4 accounts per IP address. If you decide to make more than that, your highest account(s) will be locked until you are back down to 4 accounts. If you choose to make more than one account, they may not interact with each other. This means no arguing between your accounts, no sending gold or pets from one account to another, no PvPing yourself, etc. Don't create an alt for drama purposes either. If you do, your main may be locked. Also, do NOT refer your own account(s).*** This type of cheating is just in bad taste. Again, we may decide to lock your main account if you do. If you share a computer, Internet connection, or Network with another player we will assume there is only one person at the keyboard and you will be held responsible for all activity that originates from your account or IP address.

***This also includes your "sisters" or "brothers." Only refer people that don't live in your house.

Also, if you suspect someone of being an alt, it's not your duty to announce it in chat or ask them whose alt they are.
It's none of your business. If you know someone to be an alt, keep it to yourself unless you have permission from the person to share that information with others.

(I would like to note that the only foolproof way to keep an alt a secret is to not tell anyone. I don't care if you only tell your BFF- it will get out somehow. )

Appropriate content
Keep your comments and actions appropriate for all ages. This means watch your language, watch your sexual content, and absolutely, NO CYBERING ANYWHERE ON THE SITE. Owls and dwellings are not excluded from this. If we have evidence, or in some cases even just suspect that you are here only for sexual reasons, you WILL be banned.

Bullying/Harassment
Do not bully/harass someone for how they are roleplaying just because it is not how you RP or how you perceive RP has to be. You are not a RP king/queen and do not have the right to tell someone how to RP or make fun of them for how they choose to RP. As long as their RP partner(s) is fine with how they RP, it is none of your concern. If you do not like how someone RPs, do not RP with them, it is that simple. If you do not like seeing their posts, use the ignore feature.

Spam
Examples of spam:

Hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!!!!
"*love**love**love**love**love**love*"
"hahahahahahahahahaha"
"pppllleeeaaassseee"
.................
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
iliketowriterunonwordsthatgoonandonforeverandever
Posting one or two lines of a song is alright, posting more is not allowed and considered spam.


The full list of rules can be found in the FAQ, located in every village. You may want to take a moment to review those as well, as not knowing them does not excuse you from having to follow them.

Thanks, and have a good day! xD

What if you dont notice that the bug/glitch has helped you? Would the person still be banned/locked?

Be Humble Nirm • Sunday, June 24, 2012 - 2:48pm • #2

I know that rule quite well. xD

!IAmOnlyOne WitchyWoman • Sunday, June 24, 2012 - 2:54pm • #3

@LA- I'm pretty sure that you'd be able to tell that you were helped. This rule is aimed at players purposely doing something that adds extra VEs, gold, gems, or other stats without earning them the way the game intended.

If you still have a question, owl me with specifics and I'll try to answer it more clearly.

As much as I support the rules, I cannot help just thinking about one thing. The account numbers. Surely there has to be a way that siblings could play, even with a certain amount of accounts their other siblings have.

Stalker HerLilyWeasley • Sunday, June 24, 2012 - 10:27pm • #5

Alana, one can have an alt, as well as their siblings. They just can't refer each other. If there is only one IP address, the sibling may have to make a maximum of that one account, or one alt, at the most.
Correct me if I'm wrong, staffers! XD

Witchy! You're not vile or old. X.X

Torturer Xizen • Sunday, June 24, 2012 - 11:37pm • #6

If you share under the same IP address with a sibling, that IP address' max account number is still 4.

Nobody really knows if that's your sibling or not : fakers do live amongst us ;)

Its a sad world when people just have to cheat at everything rather than work at it or play by the rules

I think this is good i like this witchy.

!IAmOnlyOne WitchyWoman • Tuesday, June 26, 2012 - 2:57pm • #9

In some cases, we do know that it's multiple people living in one house and we will make exceptions to the only 4 accounts per IP rule.

I tried to make another account for my sister but it said i was only allowed one account.

@House Elf Kilian • Saturday, July 7, 2012 - 1:49am • #14

Only 1 account per e-mail, yes. But, you're allowed up to 4 accounts per IP as long as you didn't refer any of them.

The fact that people would come on here for JUST !#@%$! purposes is quite saddening :(

Goddess CarolineSmith • Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 6:43pm • #18

Nice rules. :)

Stalker HerLilyWeasley • Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 7:34pm • #19

I remember this..
I've learned the rules! :D

Chuamp;-Chu Chuan • Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 11:08pm • #20

Well said WitchyWoman! :D
But... what's '@%$!#ING'? Is that supposed to be #@%$!-bullying?

Chuamp;-Chu Chuan • Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 11:09pm • #21

OMG. It's filtered! Sorry!... D:

!AwayForSummer Juan • Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 11:46pm • #22

Cybering has to do with inappropriate sexual behaviors, and Cyber Bulling is inappropriate hostile behavior towards someone, or group of people. Which is why it's mentioned in it's respective places in the FAQs.

Supreme Goddess Cadaver • Thursday, November 15, 2012 - 8:46pm • #23

Coolio.

Chuamp;-Chu Chuan • Friday, November 16, 2012 - 2:37am • #24

Ah, I see. Thanks! :D
