    Exclamation >>>NOTICE<<<

    I'm making this thread due to what I've personally witnessed over the past couple of weeks. This notice goes primarily for the Growtopia section. The game has grown quite a bit, and the forum community along with it. Much of this is for those who are just now joining the forums, but applies to everyone; new and long-time forumers alike.



    First, take a look at the following threads. They should open in a separate tab so you can return to this page easily:

    The Official Support Page covers frequent issues and will most likely answer your question without even needing to ask anyone. It will also tell you how to go about getting assistance. You will want to also look over the Support Desk FAQs. The Support Desk contains a ton of information that will answer the majority of everyday questions. Both are reliable since its straight from the source, so no having to worry about if you got a trustworthy answer or not.

    The Forum Rules will tell you the do's and do-nots. Pretty straight forward. The Posting Guidelines will give you all the info you need about where to post your topic. Also, be sure to look at that Spam Warning!

    The Official Casino Guidelines will tell you all the do's and do-nots regarding casino worlds, and how to spot them as a scam.



    Any of the following posts that I see, I will be removing without any further notice:

    Scam Posts: Any post about being scammed or how you scammed someone else. This includes "anti-scamming". I consider the latter two topics bullying and promotion of such behavior.

    Threads in the wrong sub-forum: Review the Posting Guidelines! Its that easy to prevent your thread from going poof. If the post was deliberately made under the wrong sub-forum, I will be issuing an infraction. I've been WAY lenient on this up until now. Remember that the forum goes beyond just Growtopia. Just because Growtopia is the game you play doesn't mean your general chat and questions go into the Growtopia forum (i.e. "How was your day?"). That's what the RTsoft Tavern is for.

    "Ad Threads": Any thread made to advertise another thread, regardless of if it is in the correct sub-forum.

    "I was banned/cursed/taped" posts: The forums aren't the place to appeal your punishment(s). Contact support@growtopiagame.com.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------update---------------------------------------------------------------------

    Plugged Threads: A "plug" is more-or-less mentioning something so it gets attention. What it means here is a thread that uses a subject to get attention for a different one. A simple example would be posting a thread titled "I got [a new item]!" then its contents being "How much is it worth?". That post has plugged a price check into an otherwise in-general statement.



    This section is to further expand and clarify the posting guidelines, although I think they are pretty straight forward (obvious) already.

    Growtopia World Showcase and Collaboration Requests: Any thread advertising a world and/or asking for help with one goes into the Growtopia World Showcase and Collaboration Requests sub-forum. (i.e. "[This world] for WOTD!", "Come look at this new adventure world!", "Anyone have a song I can use?", "Anyone donate [blocks/items/service] to help build [a world]?", "New world needs admins!")

    Introductions / Farewells / Drama: ANY thread saying hi or bye (even introducing a new forum account), freaking out about something that happened and/or complaining about another player, world, etc. goes into the Introductions / Farewells / Drama sub-forum. (please note: Drama threads that contain bullying will be deleted AND you will receive an infraction.)

    Growtopia Suggestions And Ideas: Any thread recommending a new item, a modification to a current item, a new mechanic, and/or sponsorship of items goes into the Growtopia Suggestions And Ideas sub-forum.

    Growtopia Marketplace: Any thread involving buying, selling, hiring, working, price checks, rarity checks, or other economic discussion goes into the Growtopia Marketplace sub-forum. (i.e. "Should I buy ____?", "Will ____ rise or fall in price?", "Selling/Buying [item(s)]", "Need a music maker/farm helper/admin/etc. Paying/will pay [amount].", "Any worlds needing admins? I will admin for [price].")

    Contests, Competitions & Giveaways: Pretty self-explanatory, right? Well, any thread regarding a contest, competition, or giveaway goes into the Contests, Competitions & Giveaways sub-forum. (i.e. "Find the hidden [item] in [this world]!". "Best story contest", "Whoever designs me the best signature wins [item(s)]!", "Clan tournament!", "_____ Challenge")

    Fan Art, Movies, & Stories: Again, pretty self-explanatory. Any thread regarding short-stories, artwork, and/or videos goes into the Fan Art, Movies, & Stories sub-forum.

    Growtopia Bug Reports and Problems: Any thread regarding a question and/or an encountered problem or potential bug goes into the Growtopia Bug Reports and Problems sub-forum. Not for in-general scam reports.

    Now if you find that your thread doesn't fit into any of the aforementioned sub-forums...then it goes into the Growtopia General Chat sub-forum.



    This may seem harsh, but I felt it was necessary. The sticky threads and forum rules were created to keep the forums organized and as trouble-free as possible. I don't like punishing people as much as I don't like seeing people getting punished. So, trying to prevent the punishments altogether.

    Furthermore. If someome is intentionally causing drama, harrassing or trolling someone else or generally using the forums for their personal ego boosting stomping ground, I will take action.

    And for those who still make good threads with ongoing discussions, thank you.

    I agree. The amount of useful information in the "from the Support Desk" thread is insanely high, 99% of our problems are answered there.

    I've seen post just like this. Then I see all the forumers come and praise it like gospel. For a moment I have hope that what was said will be done, as I see a post for the market place subforum floating right next to this one. You can make this post then walk away and call it moderation. It wont get the job done. When you guys actuallty moderate the forums you might see an ebb and flow to things. Until then I expect nothing to change. Actions speak louder then words.

    Fair enough mate. I've always had a soft spot for the forums and actually feel passionate about helping it. Think about it. If people actually take notice and post in the right subforums then the other subforums would be used more often, giving others the reason to post there other than "It has to"

    Also, if people would take into account what they say here (it can be read by anyone), maybe we wouldn't have to punish players and put out flame wars so often. It's the vocal minority spoiling it for the majority here. It's only a small portion of people who use the forums that actually uses it negatively.

    Thats really the only option you guys got if you want less nonsense in the forums. The higher some ones post count the more behaved your expected to be. You cut the newer guys some slack and hope they get it. Your always gonna have "I got banned for no reason" threads. Nothing you can do but delete it if you see it. The same with this "name" scammed me. Its just gonna happen. I figure if you got a guy past 500 post still making the post in wrong subforum or nonsense post I would think it was time to start laying the smack down. At 500 post you should have been around enough to know how you should act in the forums.
