General Posting Guidelines

Please be sure to follow the Terms of Service and Rules and Guidelines here, as in all forums.

Common violations to avoid:

    Flaming & trolling. Posts directed at another member which are hateful, abusive, or intentionally inflammatory are considered flaming. Making intentionally inflammatory or provocative posts to incite responses from other members is considered trolling.

    Spam. Posts that are gibberish, off-topic, contain advertisements or begging, or have low or no content are considered spam. Please ensure that your posts are on topic and contain an appropriate amount of discussable content.

    Scamming. Taking or attempting to take another member's gold, items or efforts, through false promises, deception, tricks or get-rich-quick schemes is considered scamming and is not tolerated on Gaia.


Terms of Service violations may result in a warning or a ban on your account.

If you find Terms of Service violations, or threads that may need moved to a different forum, please use an appropriate report. The procedures for doing so can be found here.

You can find online moderators by following the "View Forum Moderators" link at the top of the forum.

Gaia Staff will NEVER ask for your password! If anyone asks you for your password, report it.

Rules & Guidelines for Posting in The Crew Lounge

Tips for Posting
  • Posts must be relevant to day-to-day guild activity - examples include questions about managing sub-forums, guild management tips and tricks, and looking for advice from fellow crew members on how to better manage your guild.

  • Want to make a guild, but not sure what topic? Make a thread here to get ideas from your peers!

  • Posts should be support related. This is not a chat forum, it's a discussion forum. Please reserve all chat (hang outs) for the Chatterbox or Friends Chat.

  • Buying/selling/recruiting do not happen in this forum. Please go to Guilds Charter and Barter for that.


FAQ
  • What if I have a problem with my guild (abusive member, guild technical glitch, etc)? Is this the right place to post those types of questions?
    No. This sub-forum is designed to help guild crew members get information about how to improve their guild, answer "how'd you do that" questions, and get general support from your fellow crew. Abusive members should be reported to admins here, and technical glitches should be reported here in the Bug Report & Technical Support sub-forum.

Report Hacking, Scamming or Abuse & Harassment?

The Hacking, Scamming and Abuse or Harassment report forms can be found at the bottom of the forum index. When submitting a report, ensure that you fill out all fields and include as much relevant information as possible.

    Report A Hacking
    Use this form to report a Hacking. Hacking, on Gaia Online, refers to the unauthorized access of an account by someone other than the account owner. In most typical hacking cases, an unauthorized person enters an account which does not belong to him or her and takes items or gold from the account, often changing the account information so that the original owner can no longer access his or her account.

    Report A Scamming
    Use this form to report a Scamming. Scamming is when another member of Gaia takes your gold or items, or tries to take your gold or items, by making false promises of giving you rare items, get-rich-quick schemes, or by any other deceptive means. Scamming generally involves a situation in which two members of Gaia make an arrangement to trade gold, items, or a Gaia approved service (e.g. avatar art commission) with each other and then one of the parties involved in the arrangement fails to live up to his or her promise of an exchange.

    Report Abuse or Harassment
    Use this form to report ongoing Abuse or Harassment. If you are reporting harassment or abuse that is occurring directly in a thread, please use the "Report This Post" button instead.
