    Board rules



    Shakes & Fidget is a game and games should be fun, entertaining and enjoyable for all players. In order to create a friendly atmosphere for everyone, rules must be set and followed.
    Please read the following rules carefully and keep them in mind when you are online in the game and forums. And don't forget: have fun and enjoy your time here!

    • The official language is English - it is the shared language of this International Forum where players from the UK, US, Sweden, Denmark, the Netherlands, Romania, Russia and Japan meet. Keep your posts in English, which is important for the social and communicative aspect of this International Forum as everbody should be able to understand you. Exception: Swedish, Danish, Dutch, Russian and Romanian are also allowed in the respective guild sections of our servers and in the Non-English Forums. Feel free to talk in your Native language in the chat box, too but keep in mind that chatting is more fun if more people join in - which they can with English as the shared language.
    • Only 1 forum account per user & IP allowed.
    • The support team has the right to warn users, censor posts and ban users if they breach our rules.
    • In extreme cases users can even be banned without warning.
    • These rules apply to posts, signatures and private messages (PMs).
    • Our ToS and the German law apply to the whole forum. The operator of this forum can not be held responsible for images and links posted by users that violate copyright.


    a) Content:
    • Do not post pornographic, hateful, offensive, morally questionable content and links, including keys, hacks, cracks, warez and - generally speaking - content violative of any law.
    • Do not post commercial content or any form of commercial advertizing.
    • Do not post content related to other browser games.
    • Do not use vulgar and inappropriate language.
    • Be nice, be polite, no flaming, no trolling!

    • Do not talk about bans, warnings and banned or warned users. Example: "user x has been banned for x days", "why has user x been banned?"
    • Do not post content, links, nicknames and account names with the sole purpose of insulting users!

    c) Style:
    • Do not post in wrong forums (offtopic posts), do not double-post but use the edit button instead, do not push your threads. No cross-posting.
    • Do not overuse spoilers and quotes.
    • Do not spam with emoticons or images! It causes too much traffic and may freeze other users’ computers.

    • Images in signatures must not exceed the following dimensions:

      maximum width: 700 px
      maximum height: 140 px
      maximum file size: 100 kb
    • It is not allowed to enlarge signatures beyond these limits.
    • Text in signatures is allowed unless it is a) racist, b) sexist, c) politically, religiously or morally insulting, d) commercial or e) related to other browser games.

    • Multiple warnings can lead to a permanent ban. Creating a new account during a temporary ban can lead to a permanent ban.
    • If you feel you have been treated unjustly by a mod contact him or her. If your problem has not been solved you may get in contact with an administrator. The admin's word is final.
    • If a user tries to overrule a support member's decision by contacting another support member with the same case, his or her account can be locked or deleted. Complaints are excluded from this rule.
    • Problems with a mod? Contact an administrator. Problems with an administrator? Contact the community manager.
    • Our team reserves the right to change these rules at any time when necessary.
