The rules below are in a more simple layout with little explanation on some items. The rules are all the basic stuff (No spamming, No swearing, No advertising etc.) but with a few unique extras that apply to the shoutbox. Whilst they do not appear in the pop-up that accompanies the shoutbox they are still rules and need to be adhered to at all times.

The shoutbox is a wonderful place to chat about various topics and to ask questions and get help, we have a great community of helpful and dedicated members. These rules are in place to make sure that the shoutbox stays a pleasent place for everyone :)

Shoutbox Rules

No Spam
:x: Posting Gibberish (i.e gjdjsjsj)
:x: Links to other GPT sites
:x: Links to inappropriate sites/videos
:x: Repeating the same question or statement within a short space of time

Keep it PG
We understand that we have a lot of adult members but we are also a family friendly with members as young as 13. The shoutbox is openly viewable to all people who visit the website and the content in the shoutbox can greatly influence if people join the website.
:x: Talk of illegal Drugs
:x: Talk of Sex/Sexual activity
:x: Foul language (Covering up bad language with symbols is also not allowed)
:x: Sensitive topics such as politics and religion are best avoided in shout, a moderator may ask you to take the conversation out of shout at their discretion if they feel it becomes inappropriate for shout
:light: These rules are for the shoutbox (and forums) only. You are perfectly free to discuss more adult topics in private messages and private forums (as long as the words you used aren't blacklisted :p ).

Be Respectful
:x: Name calling/flaming/vulgar language
:x: Derogatory remarks about anyone's race, religion, country, gender, or sexual orientation
:x: Deleting messages without good cause or reason

No Asking for Stuff
I'm going to group a couple items under this one.
:x: Asking people to play Games
:x: Asking for Points
:x: Asking people to get rewards for you
:x: Asking for votes
:x: Asking for donations to causes(this one applies to PMs as well)
:light: You are free to ask for opinions on your websites/videos as a one-off post, however what we don't like to see is it being posted frequently (i.e spammed). We have a whole range of forum sections where you can share your work and get opinions :)
:light: The same rule above also applies to asking people to join your team, it is OK as a one-off post but do not spam it. You should instead check out the Compete Forums, there you can look for teams to join or make a post about your own team.
:light: The same with posting your points/cash or goals status, please do not do it. One off posts are okay but doing it can be perceived as subtle begging. If you want to keep others updated then please do so in your profile description.

No Discussion of Account issues
Account issues are not to be discussed in the shoutbox. Only admins can help with account issues and they will rarely discuss a users account issue in the shoutbox, you MUST deal with the issue in a ticket, complaining about waiting times or the issue in the shoutbox will not help and will result in a ban if continued.

English Only
English is the only language that is allowed to be used in the shoutbox. We are not trying be disrespectful to our non-english speakers. While Points2Shop has users of many nationalities, the shoutbox mainly consists of users that speak English, so it just makes it easier to keep up with.

Do not share personal Information
Do not share personal information such as phone numbers, emails, messenger ID, personal blogs and address to anyone in the shoutbox since the information would be viewable to everyone. If you must share this information with another person then please do it in a PM.

We are not a dating site
The shoutbox is a great place to make new friends however what we do not expect to see it comments such as "Any cute girls here", we are not that type of website. Oddly enough though a lot of offers are for dating sites so maybe try them for dating ;)

NO Selling/Trading
The shoutbox should not be used as a place to exchange or sell goods. There are many other websites that specialise in selling/trading but we are not one of them.

No Abusing Shoutbox Powers
Abuse of any of powers will not be tolerated. This includes deleting messages without good cause or reason, showing a user or group of users the shoutbox rules repeatedly and blocking a person without warning and/or reason. Offending users will be issued a full site ban and in extreme cases will have the power removed.

No trying to spell out bad words using symbols, etc. that aren't allowed because the shoutbox blocked you from saying it.

No bugging Mods etc., They will answer you when they can, They are busy people who pick on zeekz lol jk.

I had asked LittleRose a day or two ago about whether or not asking memebers to trade points for money via paypal was allowed and she told me that while its not a rule, it should really be kept in PM, IM, or email.

She said that its not a rule of P2S until the advertisers start to enforce it, so maybe add something like that to the rules?

number 12 is very confusing, it makes it seem like playing games will get you banned XD
