PSA. There has been an ongoing issue surrounding the posting of threads in our marketplace sections. This is because members are failing to read or choosing to ignore our much loved 'marketplace guidelines', primarily the requirement for a selling or offering price, which is pinned in every forum. This is something we have always requested on Imps Village and will continue to request. The reason we ask for this to be included is so that the forums can both benefit you in a quick sale but also provide a resource for others to price check items, a benefit for everyone in the long run. This system also helps protect buyers from being charged unreasonably with our members acting as a second opinion. - The only exception to this rule is in the Real Estate forum, where we do not ask for prices to be posted due to the subjective value of houses and paddocks. In the case of In-Game-Merchants, we request you post a screenshot of what you are selling and a location. (These both have their own guidelines which you can read in their respective sub-forums.) I'd like to request that you, especially the newer members, familiarise yourselves with these guidelines. I have posted them below for your convenience. I will continue to remove topics which do not follow them, this may be done without notice. tl;dr post price pls.
To quote some of our rules: Racism/Sexism/Bigotry: Racial slurs are unacceptable regardless of ethnic background. It's not allowed. Casual use of the above: In addition the use of homophobic, racist, violent, or sexist language even in a causal or joking context, can be harmful and hurtful to people you might not expect, please be sensitive in your speech. To be explicitly clear, as many members do not seem to understand this, hate speech, symbols of hate, and any and all variations thereupon are FORBIDDEN. A non-exhaustive list of things that have never been allowed on Imps Village: Swastikas any and all photoshops of nazis or Hitler (including, but not limited to, superimposing the photos of real life people, photos of other Imps members or Dofus players, or their avatars) memes and other images that contain this imagery and common nazi diction Also any and all of the above but replace the nazi descriptors with those of racism, sexism, anti-semitism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, mocking the disabled, and bigotry of any kind in general. In essence, if you post hate, you're banned for life.
Might I remind you that using Imps Village is not your privilege. This site costs time and money to run, and is free to use. In return we expect our members to follow the rules we set out to ensure a pleasant environment for people to interact with one another and benefit the community as a whole. If you want to throw your right to be a member here away for the chance to be a cool, edgy mother fucker that's fine. Don't expect to last here much longer; I welcome you to try your chances on the Official Forums. There are many mature adults but also youngsters who will be more than happy to see you go and continue on as usual. Just because "this is the internet" doesn't make it an acceptable practice to harass or deliberately set out to cause significant offence to others. (Or any at all really). We have always accepted a little light hearted drama here, but the line is unmistakeable. Thank you.
Howdy Friends. People have given me new buttons to push so I've enlisted some help for our moderators, new and old, to revisit the rules once drawn up by Overlord Kyek. With a new group of mods, an ever changing Ankama TOS, and a growing community it’s long past due that we make some housekeeping changes, thus, we are banning you all! Okay I kid, we are however making some much needed changes to rules and guidelines which I've listed bellow. Lets start first with the Imps Village rules. These remain mostly identical to the original writings. If you've read them since we moved to the new version of IBP a couple years ago you'll notice that the broken links are now gone or fixed. We've added a small clause that points inter-server trading to market place rules. Finally we're also looking to crack down a bit more on casual racism and sexism, we've added a line: We feel like usage these terms even without the intent of being harmful can be seen negatively especially by those on the outside and new users. Remember that people other than those the joke is intended for will be reading it. (The changed text can be seen in larger font.) Signature rule change. We've decided the signature rules that came over from forums 1.0 didn't quite live up to the standards we were hoping for. If you remember large signatures were contained to a small scroll-able box and despite the boxes being annoying they were limited in size. We hope to bring back the original size limit as well as remove the need to additional scrolling. Market Place rules/guidelines have also been updated. We've expanding on inter-server trading, and hopefully made protocol for including prices, points of contact, and topic closing more clear. You know, since we haven't yet developed a mind control device to get people to include price. Really, it's not that hard and it makes life easier for everyone. I'm going to leave this open for comments for a couple days. We do appreciate input, and I hope to have a couple more exciting announcements in the coming months. ;)
