Short version ...

have fun and "Play Nice!"

Long version ...

disneyinfinityfans.com site rules are designed to ensure that forum members respect the values of other members and aim to protect members around the forums to ensure that it is an enjoyable, safe experience for all members. Breaking any rules may result in a temporary suspension of account or a full ban.

do not quote unnecessarily
Quoting another post when there is no reason to, such as when you are the next person answering to reply, fills the page for no reason. Do not do it. Hopefully this link can clarify the rule and the reasoning behind it.

do not link to large images
Images larger than 550x550 will be cropped in certain browsers and screen resolutions. Even when using spoilers to hide them do not link to images larger than 550x550. If you need to link to external images they should not be larger than 550x550 pixels. External images larger than 550x550 pixels will be removed or edited.

do not use images or videos in posts unnecessarily
Using images or videos instead of text when there is no reason to fills the page for no reason. Do not do it.

do not use animated gif images unnecessarily
Animated gif images should not be used unless they add value to the content of the post. If you can get your message across using words then that means an animated gif is unnecessary. Unnecessary animated images distract from the main content of posts and should not be used.

do not double post
Try to avoid making more than one post in a row. Edit posts if you need to add more content to them.

do not post unnecessarily to increase your post count
Posting unnecessarily just to increase your post count will not be tolerated. Do not do it.

do not use animated avatars
Animated avatars are not allowed here. They distract from the main content of posts and should not be used.

do not use videos in signature
Videos are not allowed in signatures and should not be used.

do not bump old topics
A topic that has not been posted in for more than 30 days is considered old. Please do not revive old threads. If there's a topic you're interested in but the thread is too old to be posted in, create a new thread.

stay on topic
If you would like to discuss something unrelated to the topic then start a new one, in the correct forum of course. Posts that go off-topic will be deleted. Topics that are entirely off-topic will either be deleted or moved to the correct forum.

posts should only be written in English
To ensure that all members can understand what is being posted please only post in English.

respect other people
disneyinfinityfans.com is open to anyone. Do not threaten, harass or insult your fellow members, or launch personal attacks against anyone. Please respect the beliefs of other members. If someone acts uncivil, harasses or intimidates you, you are not given the excuse to act the same in retaliation. If you disagree with the conduct of another member please report any relevant posts.

no politics, religion or sex
On these forums we put aside our political, religious and sexual differences. Topics and posts relating to politics, religion or sex are not allowed on these forums. Do not do it.

no offensive language
disneyinfinityfans.com is a place for people of all ages; please do not use words that may be considered vulgar or offensive. Many swear words are automatically filtered, so intentionally bypassing the filter may be warned. Do not use certain words in ways that may offend people. As an example, using words such as "gay" in a derogatory manner can result in a warning. You may also be warned if you use a censored term (which will be replaced with asterisks) to provoke or attack someone.

no pornography
Deliberately posting an image or link to inappropriate content will lead to a permanent ban.

no distribution of illegal content
disneyinfinityfans.com does not allow discussion of illegal materials. This includes the unauthorized distribution of TV shows, movies, video games (including video game disc or ROM images), music, or software. You may not discuss how to obtain these materials, upload them to the forums, or link to other web sites containing these materials.

no discussion or details on how to access digital game content
disneyinfinityfans.com does not allow discussion or details on how to access digital game content materials, upload them to the forums, or link to other web sites containing these materials.

no trolling
Inflammatory or irrelevant messages with the sole intent of provoking other users or inciting controversy is considered trolling. Trolling is considered to be unacceptable as it undermines the friendly environment that we aim for. Any posts believed to be attempts of trolling will be removed and continued offenders will be warned or banned.

no spamming
Other than in the “blah, blah, blah” category of the forums, don’t post stupid, pointless or annoying messages. This includes meaningless posts, or posts with no relevance to the thread. Such posts often do not add anything to a thread and hence may be removed. Please also refer to the do not post unnecessarily to increase your post count rule above as this still applies.

no unauthorised affiliate shopping links
Any affiliate shopping links that have not been posted by forum moderators are not allowed and if posted will be removed.

no donation requests
Any Patreon or similar donation requests are not allowed and if posted will be removed.

no eBay links

Please send contact Sheriff Woody before posting contests or giveaways. Any contests or giveaways that have not been authorised may be removed.

no external signature links

linking to videos

monetized YouTube channels
