Revised June 2017
You're a little hesitant as you walk around Mythodreas, unsure of what lies ahead. You feel that the Gatekeeper and the Willow Tree didn't tell you a lot about what you could do and could not do. Maybe you should ask? The last thing you need is to get on your pantheon's or a guide's bad side... Evonnay must have heard your concerns because as you wade through the thick foliage, you spot a green Wisp. It's perched on a rock, it's back to you, but you when you draw closer it glances over its shoulder.

Cheating, Scamming, and Glitches
When you first sign up for your journey, you, as a wanderer, must submit a valid e-mail address, birthdate, and country. If you are over the age of 13, you have the option to enter a name. The e-mail you enter will be necessary to send lost passwords, activation codes, and things of the like. While you are here, Mythodreas will record your unique Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, location, and other non-personal information for use in site demographics as well as for security precautions.
The rules I'm about to list for you are important to keep in mind in every aspect of the website. In other words, your Missives, profile, homepage, signature, Familiar profiles, and any other pages that you are able to edit must follow these guidelines. By joining the world of Mythodreas, you agree to the following:
1. You must abide by these Terms of Service at all times.
2. You are required to adhere to all requests made by the Mythodreas Administration.
3. All writing must have correct grammar and capitalization to the best of your knowledge. Please refrain from using "chatspeak" or "textspeak."
4. Make sure that you treat all Wanderers, guests, and Guides/Administration of Mythodreas with equal respect.
5. You will not, under any circumstance, post pornographic media of any sort.
6. Likewise, you will not "sext" on the Forums or over Missives.
7. You may not roleplay over Missives.
8. You will not make vulgar and/or personal attacks against another Wanderer.
9. Do not harass another user of Mythodreas by any means.
10. You must not post derogatory, racially offensive, or explicit material.
11. Do not give out your password to any user, including Mythodreas Administration.
12. Do not pester or beg Mythodreas Administration or other Wanderers for perks, items, Pence, and the like.
13. Do not cheat. If you discover a glitch or a bug, report it instead of exploiting it.
14. Do not spam Wanderers, Forums, Clubs, and the like with repetitive content, solicited content, advertisements to join Clubs or buy from Shops, or to visit a site unrelated to Mythodreas. Likewise, you will not, to the best of your knowledge, post content in the wrong Forum or post irrelevant content that contributes nothing to the discussion.
15. You will not blatantly plug other websites' direct links or names into a conversation unless it fits for that circumstance, lest it will be considered spam.
16. You must not manipulate site CSS so that "Mythodreas.com" cannot be read on a homepage, Club page, profile, shop, or Familiar profile.
17. Finally, you agree to alert a Guide from the Mythodreas Administration regarding any site or user issues.
Keep in mind that any and all decisions made by the Mythodreas Administration are final and are not made lightly; however, you are always encouraged to speak up and voice your opinion on any issue that may arise.
The Forums are a fun place to connect with other Wanderers and make new friends. Mythodreas's Forums are restricted to registered Wanderers who are thirteen (13) years old or older. All Forum content must follow the rating of PG-13 or under. Therefore, by using the forums, you agree to the following:
As far as roleplaying Romance . . .
1. Brief mentions of nudity is allowed; however, there may be no sexually oriented content pertaining to the sex.
2. There will be no intense sexual actions. Content that involves sex or explicit signs or actions of physical pleasure is unacceptable. Some actions that are allowed include making out, snuggling, hugging, kissing, and holding hands.
3. Stating the relationship between characters is allowed, on all grounds-family, friends, and partnerships.
4. Sexual remarks, jokes, and images are not allowed by any means.
As far as roleplaying Violence . . .
1. Profanity/Vulgarity may be allowed within the context of the roleplay's storyline and character(s). Clear overuse of a vulgar or obscene phrase that is unrelated to the situation and character development will not be tolerated.
2. Do not post any hate-related content.
3. Moderate violence is acceptable, but Mythodreas will not tolerate graphic depictions of death, fighting, abuse, persecution, gore, rape, and other overly-violent and unacceptable acts.
4. Moderate use of drugs and alcohol may be allowed within the context of the roleplay's storyline; however, graphic depictions and praise are frowned upon and not allowed.
5. Use of weapons as needed within the roleplay's storyline are acceptable. Do not write gory descriptions while using any weapon.
6. Description of gruesome injuries, cannibalism, rape, dismemberment, and the like are not acceptable, no matter the case.
You must Respect others . . .
1. There is to be no harassment or bullying of any kind.
2. Do not spam the Forums or use excessive (or all) capital letters.
3. Do not use any racial, sexual, or religious terms. Likewise, do not make any comments or jokes about those topics.
4. Absolutely no pornographic images, links, or jokes will be tolerated.
5. Copyrighted characters must be given acknowledgment to their rightful creator.
6. For roleplays, do not use any improper character names or roleplay titles.
7. All main content of the Forums must be in English; however, some words or quotes of another language, as long as the meaning of the words is clear or can easily be found out, they relate to the story or the character (if in a roleplay), and they don't cross the boundaries of any other rules, are permitted.
8. Do not argue with the Guides of Mythodreas. If a Gate Keeper deems your content, roleplay or otherwise, is unacceptable, it most likely is. Alter it, or it may be deleted, and you may face a pentalty.
9. As with violent roleplays, no profanity or obscenity is allowed on the Forums.
10. Once again, no roleplays are allowed over Missives. Mythodreas Administration should not have to check mail for violations, as the rules for the Forums themselves have now been relaxed to allow more creative content.
Cheating, Scamming, and Glitches
Keep in mind that the use of cheat programs, refreshers, or hacking tools on any Mythodreas page, feature, or application will cause your journey in Mythodreas to come to an abrupt end. Cheating will result in an automatic freeze or ban of your account. In addition, do not scam any other Wanderer or guest, as that will also result in a freeze or ban of your account. Finally, remember to report any glitches or bugs to the Guides of Mythodreas. If you abuse and exploit a glitch or bug you found, or know of from other means, your account will be frozen or banned. This includes glitches that the Alchemists are working on fixing, ones that have already been reported to them.
All Wanderers of Mythodreas are expected to have integrity and help in creating a safe and friendly environment that is fair to all fellow Wanderers. We have the most fun and get the most done when we work together.
You are only allowed one account per IP. In other words, you may only have this one account on Mythodreas. Another account on the same IP may be approved, though, if someone else in your household also wants to join Mythodreas. If this is the case, please be sure to make a note on your homepage that someone shares your IP in order to prevent possible future banning or penalties as issued by a Guide of Mythodreas.
Also, Mythodreas reserves the right to permanently terminate any account for inactivity, including accounts with Pence, Battle Coins, or other items or privileges that may have been licensed through the payment of real-world money to Mythodreas or Mythodreas's licensing partners. An account is considered inactive if a Wanderer has not accessed the world of Mythodreas for six to twelve (6-12) months.
Users, as of March 1, 2018, may be allowed to upload a custom avatar that is non-Mythodreas related. Additionally, users, as of July 15, 2018, may be allowed to upload a video or image to their profile. The image and or video must not contain outright nudity, meaning obvious genitalia and other physical, sexual content; political or religious beliefs or views, and may not display sexual actions whatsoever. In addition, the image may not contain curses, hate of any kind, or affiliation with harmful substances or actions (i.e. drugs, alcohol, suicide, etc.). We ask that you keep in mind that the images will be resized and saved onto Mythodreas. If the image or video is believed to go against the Terms of Service or is considered offensive by the majority, you will be asked to remove your image or video. If you refuse or fail to change your image or video within a timely manner, a Guide will penalize you.
If any registered Wanderer defies the Terms of Service as I have laid out for you, they may be suspended for up to seventy-two (72) hours or even frozen or banned permanently. Please note that depending on a Wanderer's account history and type of infraction, the Wanderer may be frozen or suspended for breaking the rules and will be frozen for multiple infractions. A Wanderer may not necessarily be warned prior to being frozen.
Another thing you should realize, dear Wanderer, is that all content in and of Mythodreas (including, but not limited to: uploaded or submitted images, pets, non-player characters, written work, fanart, and scripts) is the property of Mythodreas and is protected under The Copyright Act.

The Mythodreas Administration wants to make it clear that it makes no claims to the ownership of trademarks, patents, and copyrights that do not belong to it. Any content uploaded or submitted under false pretense-such as, the user lying about creating the content-or direct credit is unacceptable and will lead to the uploader or submitter being banned.

Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998
The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, or COPPA, is a law created to protect the privacy of an individual under the age of thirteen (13). The law requires parental consent for the collection and/or use of the child's information. If a young Wanderer's guardian requires the Wanderer's information or for the Wanderer's information to be removed, please send a request to MythodreasAdministration@mythodreas.com.
In addition, COPPA requires that safety precautions be used to further protect children under the age of thirteen (13). This includes blocking children from various site features that could potentially put them at risk when it comes to private and or sensitive information. If it is discovered that you are under the age of thirteen (13) and have lied about your age, your account will be banned.
Mythodreas Administration will continue to do the best it can to ensure the Wanderer's safety and privacy.
Well, it was nice getting to know you! Hopefully everything I've told you makes sense. If not, you can always contact a Guide here in Mythodreas to explain something further to you! Remember that these Terms of Service are always subject to change, but that just gives you an excuse to come visit me again! Have fun in the world of Mythodreas; a land of myths and dreams awaits you!
