Club Penguin Planet Rules
Hello there. You are now viewing the official rules of Club Penguin Planet. You must follow these rules at all times or there will be consequences. It is important you read these carefully.

Please remember that in order to register, you are required to be over thirteen (13) years of age. Parental consent is required under the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, part of United States federal law for the registration of any user under the age of thirteen (13). Please forward any COPPA consent forms via email to a staff member.
Any data stored on http://www.clubpenguinplanet.net/ is encrypted and stored on an external database beyond our control. When registering, remember that any personal information shared is at your own risk, and any users who register with a false date of birth and are later found to be underage will be removed. We take no responsibility for information shared by users and we will actively promote safe internet use for those under the age of thirteen (13).
For more information on the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act, visit http://www.coppa.org/


1. No spamming.
Spam is the act of posting messages that are not needed. Here is a useful acronym that will help you out if you are new to the term:

S
tupid
P ointless
A nnoying
M essages

Note that I said the word “messages”. This could mean one word, or even a phrase/sentence. If the message does not benefit the topic in any way, please do not post it by itself. Feel free to post a “spam phrase” with something else as long as it sticks to the topic and it makes sense.

There are different types of spam rules we have here at CPP. Here are three examples; but more cases that aren't noted below must be followed too.

Stay on topic.
This kind of ties with the spam rule, but basically this is self explanatory.
For example, if you posted in a topic called “Dogs”, you must incorporate something about dogs in your post, not about the peanut butter sandwich you ate two years ago.
Now, you can talk about that sandwich as long as it incorporates dogs in the story.

No double posting.
Double posting means you may not post right after a post you just made in a specific thread (a thread is the same as a topic). You must wait for someone else to reply before you can make another post.

No Bumping.
Bumping is when you post on a topic that is old. If you post in a topic that is older than a month, you will be warned or given an infraction depending on how many rules you have broken in the past.
You are aloud to Bump topics that are special threads such as Stickies and Announcements. You can also bump threads if you have a reason to bump it.


Example of a reason to bump a thread:
Let's say a user is working on a wallpaper and posts a thread to keeps the users updated with his/her progress. One day, this user decides to take a break from this project for two months. When the user comes back to post in the 2 month old topic, it is not breaking the bumping rule.
Please use your common sense with this exception.

NO POINTLESS POSTS.
Even though this was covered in the SPAM acronym, this is a rule we will enforce much more. If the post does not benefit the topic in any way, please do not post it! An example of a pointless post is this.
User 1: Someone, please enlarge this picture for me. Thanks!
User 2: Sorry, I don't know how.

If any of us staff see that, you will be given a warning. You will be given an infraction for every time after.

2. No advertising.
Advertising is the act of promoting another website through CPP in this case.
If you post links to other sites that are not either (1) a search engine, such as Yahoo and Google, or (2) YouTube, that is considered advertising. However, you may advertise in your signature, which appears at the bottom of each of your posts, which is separated from a post by a horizontal line.
Any websites that are for user reference, education or assistance will be allowed, and links that act as provisional aspects of a thread are also permitted, but staff will closely monitor the content of these websites to ensure that the user is not posting to increase the popularity or success of another website without our permission.
You can advertise your website legally on CPP by purchasing a place on our sponsors widget, in the Coin Shop (click here).

3. No flaming.
Flaming is the act of expressing a feeling of dislike. Online, flaming is expressed through using ALL CAPITAL LETTERS or using too many exclamation marks. Please be careful about what you say because you will be penalized if you flame. Being disrespectful to users is a form of flaming. So, please be respectful to all users, new and old. This rule applies to posts, PMs, and both chat-rooms.

4. No inappropriate content/pictures.
Do not link to any site or have a picture or post a comment that contains adult content, sexually oriented material or might otherwise be considered offensive.

5. No bribing/asking for a position in the staff.
If you bribe or ask for a position in the staff, you will (1) get an infraction(s) and (2) convince us not to consider you for a moderator/administrator.

6. On-the-Spot Rules.
The staff has the right to make rules on the spot if need be. They do not need to specifically be in these rules. Also, the administrators will be making sure that moderators and other administrators do not make rules that are unfair. If they do, they will be penalized for their actions.

7. Club Penguin Planet Uses Images from Club Penguin
Club Penguin images, text, ideas, etc.
(c) 2005-2009 Club Penguin Interactive, Disney, and New Horizon
Interactive.
Club Penguin Planet doesn't and will never claim that the artwork that is being used is made by them, but we always say that we took them from Club Penguin.

8. Hacking
Please no talking about hacking. No Club Penguin hacking discussion and no Club Penguin Planet hacking discussion any hack threats will result in a ban.

9. Illegal Content
Distribution of warez, cracks, serials or illegally obtained copyrighted content is not allowed on this forum. This means no giving links to music files, video files, and other stuff that is not legally yours.

10. Multiple Accounts
On this forum, you can have one account and no more. There is no reason that you should have to create more than one account. If you forget your password, there is a way to retrieve it through your e-mail. If you are caught using more than one account, you will be banned from the forum. If you have a brother or sister on the forum, please notify us so we know you are not double accounting.

11. Sharing Accounts
You are not allowed to share an account with another user even if that other user is banned or not.

12. Plagiarism
We do not allow you to plagiarize on this forum. Only share what is yours. You will be infracted or warned for posting something that is not yours.

13. Signature And Avatar Limits
If you avatar or signature is too big, we will pm you asking you to resize it. If you refuse to, we will delete it. It is recommended you do the removal because you will be able to take out what you do not like in your signature.

14. No Cussing/Swear Words
Swearing and cussing is not aloud on this forum. Using inappropriate language will result in an infraction.

15. Private Messaging/IM's Permission
You may not post a private message unless you have permission from the user.
You may send it to one of the Staff members if necessary.
As for IM's, you may not post any chat history without permission from the user(s)/Staff.

16. No Backseat Moderating
This is when a user tells another user that he/she is breaking a rule. This is considered spam because staff members are the only ones with the permissions to punish a user for breaking the forum rules. If you catch a user breaking the rules, report it to the staff instead by using the report system.


If any of the above rules are broken, you will receive what are called infractions. Infractions are “warnings” that tell you that you are closer to being banned from a set time from the forums. Before you start getting infractions, you will receive warnings through PM (Private Message) telling you what rule you are breaking. After a few warnings, you will start receiving infractions. Once you get 5 infractions, you will be banned from the forum. When you come back from a ban, your infractions are not reset. You can not get rid of any infractions unless the infraction is improper. Please read further for information on appealing your infractions.

Banning System:
1st. 7 days
2nd. 14 days
3rd. 30 days
4th. 6 months
5th. year
6th. forever

If an infraction that you have received does not include the following in it, report it to the Appeal Your Infractions thread to have it removed:

• Reason for the Infraction
• Date of the Infraction
• Staff member who gave the Infraction
• Link to thread/post for which the Infraction was given

It may look like there are a lot of rules but they are all very important. It is not hard to follow them. So many users here are able to follow these rules easier. If you have any questions about the rules, do not be afraid to ask about them.

Useful Links:
Post here if you have gotten an unfair infraction.
Post Here if you have any rule questions.

Thank you for reading the rules and have a great time at Club Penguin Planet!
