Player Behavior Policy
These policies are put in place to ensure that Prime World offers the best player experience it can. We encourage all players to help promote these policies both in-game and in our online communities. Failure to adhere to these policies will result in actions against your Prime World account(s).
NIVAL is not obligated to send you a warning before these actions occur. If your account is suspended or banned while participating in a tournament or competition, NIVAL assumes no liability in the loss of any potential prizes or recognition related to the tournament or competition.
The policies herein can be changed without notice at any time NIVAL deems necessary to ensure the safety, satisfaction, and integrity of its player base.
In-game chat forbids the following:

Welcome to the Prime World forums, brave Internet traveler! Here, you can discuss ideas, give advice and chat about Prime World with other players.
Our goal is to provide a fun, friendly environment for fans of the game. In order to reach this goal, it’s up to you to treat others with courtesy and respect -- the way you'd want to be treated by other players.
We use an infraction system for the Prime World forums. Here’s how it works: If you break a forum rule, an infraction will be added to your account. A message will be sent to your inbox detailing the forum rule broken and the penalty associated with it. But all is not lost: If you exhibit positive behavior, the infraction will expire after three months. Boom. Gone.
The more infractions you gain, the harsher the penalty will be. Here are the penalties:
Before you begin your forum journey to greatness, and greatness you shall obtain, please read the following guidelines and rules. This list details the behavior that is expected from you and the behavior you can expect from your fellow posters. This is not an exhaustive list, and it may not address all manner of offensive behavior. In other words, if you find some new way to be a jerky jerk that we haven’t listed, we’ll still be able to come after you and feed you to our vicious forum dragon, Harold. Here’s a photorealistic drawing of our fine four-taloned friend.
The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category:
Distribution of Personal Information
Hacking Data Files or Posting Unreleased Content
Violating the Posting Guidelines
Harassment or Defamation
Remember: Retaliatory actions are not exempt from the rules.
Racial / Ethnic / National Abuse
Circumventing a Suspension or Ban
Account Trading or Out-of-Game Selling
Spamming or Trolling
Remember: Retaliatory actions are not exempt from the rules.
Impersonating a Nival Employee
Obscene / Vulgar
Major Religions or Religious Figures
Posting Cheats, Hacks or Malicious Programs
Illegal Drugs or Activities
Discussing Disciplinary Actions
Non-English Language Use
Repeatedly violating any area of the Forum Rules will often result in a permanent ban from the forums.
As a reminder, our courageous forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Nival reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines. We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case-by-case basis.
Prime World fans, please read these guidelines before posting on the forums. With your help, this can be a fun, friendly environment for everyone.
Improve the Discussion
Help us make this a great place for discussion by working to improve the discussion in some way, however small. If you aren’t sure your post adds to the discussion or might detract from its usefulness, think over what you want to say and try again later.
One way to improve the discussion is by discovering ones that are already happening. Use the search function to browse the topics here before replying or starting your own thread, and you’ll have a better chance of meeting others who share your interests.
Avoid Unconstructive Negativity
It’s okay to respond to something by disagreeing with it. Our forums would be rather dull if everyone agreed on everything. But remember to criticize ideas, not people. In your posts, please avoid unconstructive negativity -- negativity that is not constructive to the argument or has the intent to cause harm to another poster. Here are some examples:
Instead, practice respectful disagreement. Respectful disagreement is when a poster doesn’t agree with a comment or post and states his/her case without belittling, name-calling or finger-pointing. Even when a disagreement turns into a debate, it’s fine as long as everyone respects each other’s opinions. Here are some examples of respectful disagreement:
Use Proper Commenting Etiquette
Most people would agree that eating your food face-first like a rabid dog is rude -- and, quite frankly, it’s disturbing. Just like at the dinner table, there are agreed-upon common rules when it comes to posting on the forums. These include:
Don’t Use Nival or Any Community Team Member’s Name in Thread Titles
We understand that you would like your thread to be read by Nival; however, using this is not the way to help your cause. Please keep the titles of your threads relevant to the content of your posts. This includes threads that are titled “Please read,” “I want an answer to this” and others. Threads that violate this guideline will be subject to deletion.
Always Be Civil
Nothing sabotages a healthy conversation like rudeness:
Keep the language, links, and images safe for family and friends.
These are not concrete terms with precise definitions — avoid even the appearance of any of these things. If you’re unsure, ask yourself how you would feel if your post was featured on the front page of the New York Times.
Don’t Reply to Provocation
When someone tries to provoke you, don’t reply. It encourages the bad behavior by acknowledging it, consumes your energy and wastes everyone’s time. Just report it. If enough flags accrue, action will be taken, either automatically or by moderator intervention.
Remember, retaliatory actions are not exempt from the rules.
Keep It Tidy
Make the effort to put things in the right place, so that we can spend more time discussing and less cleaning up. So:
Post Only Your Own Stuff
You may not post descriptions of, links to, or methods for stealing someone’s intellectual property (software, video, audio, images), or for breaking any other law. Animated GIFs, signature images and avatars are fine.
