Rules and Sanctions

Rules of Conduct on the Forums

Accessing and contributing to the DOFUS Touch Forums is a privilege offered to players with an Ankama account. There are, however, important rules of conduct that are inseparable from proper operation of these forums. You should therefore be aware that you may be sanctioned if you do not obey these rules. These sanctions can range from temporarily or permanently blocking your access to the forum, to the definitive closure of your DOFUS Touch account.

Ankama makes it a point of honor to exclude all illegal, threatening, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racial, or objectionable content, whatever its nature.

In order to do so, Ankama reserves the right to delete, move, or edit any content posted on the forums, as well as to block or restrict your access to it without warning or explanation.

Below is a non-exhaustive list of the rules of good conduct on the forums you must follow.

You must:

  • Respect other players, moderators, in-game event organizers, and Ankama staff.
  • Write messages in correct, understandable language, and avoid excessive "textspeak".
  • Read all posts in a topic before answering in turn. Respect for others comes first from reading their interventions and the taking them into account before posting.
  • Take the time to search before creating a new topic. If a topic is already open on the same subject, it is better to post in that thread than create a new one.
  • Read all the "pinned topics" in a forum section before creating a topic in it or replying to an existing topic.
  • Take the time to consult the DOFUS Touch site, the Ankama Support team website, and the Logbook and Server Status sections before creating a new topic to ask a question.

You must NOT:

  • Flood, spam, or post uninteresting, too frequent or undesirable messages.
  • Use "textspeak" abbreviations.
  • Create a topic in order to conduct a survey. This feature is reserved for Ankama staff and volunteers. Surveys started by players are considered to be "flooding".
  • Create a topic to start a petition. These topics are considered to be flooding.
  • Publish or promote content that is illegal, threatening, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racial, or reprehensible.
  • Attempt, one way or another, to affect the integrity of the forum.
  • Promote any form of cheating or modification of the DOFUS Touch game client.
  • Denounce, by name and/or in public, players who have not complied with the DOFUS Touch Terms of Use or the Rules of Good Conduct on the forums.
  • Insult someone, regardless of the individual, reason, and/or context.
  • Use rude, offensive, or sexual vocabulary.
  • Publish or link to pornographic images.

Special Rules for the Various Forum Sections:

The following list sets out the rules specific to the various forum sections. Each forum section has a specific role and may therefore contain specific subjects. Discussions must not be started just anywhere, and all forum users must take note of these rules in order to ensure the forum performs correctly.

Important: The list of examples of what you can and cannot do in the various forum sections and sub-forums is not exhaustive; these examples are listed here above all as a guide.

Logbook and Server Status

These two forums must imperatively be read before any contribution to the forum. This is where the Ankama team informs you of any changes made to the game or disturbances that the servers may encounter. Only Ankama staff are allowed to post in this section.

News

You cannot create new topics in this forum; you can only reply to existing topics. This forum contains comments related to the news published on the website www.dofus-touch.com. Replies must be limited to comments on the information provided in the associated news items.

General Discussions

This forum is the "open" space on the DOFUS Touch forum. The discussions there are more open and less well-defined than in other sections. Each topic posted is, however, subject to the moderators' discretion, and they are allowed to close them without warning if they deem them not sufficiently relevant.

This forum is where you can comment on DOFUS Touch updates, talk about in-game moderation and what this implies, and so on.

On this forum, you can create topics to:

  • Comment on changes made to the servers in an update.
  • Debate the impact of in-game moderation on the general atmosphere.
  • List DOFUS Touch puns and word jokes.
  • Discuss the interest of the "Twink" concept and its viability in DOFUS Touch.

On this forum, you cannot create topics in order to:

  • Talk about sporting competitions, current events, or events without any link, even indirect, with DOFUS Touch.
  • Compare DOFUS Touch to any other MMORPG.

Server Forums

These forums are for discussions within the various game server communities. They are intended to help strengthen a sense of belonging and encourage dialog and communication among players on the same servers.

On these forums, you can create topics to:

  • Present your Guild. This presentation must be well done, developed, and not be a simple hiring call.
  • Present your character's trade(s) and offer your in-game services.
  • Organize an opening of the Lair of the Giant Kralove.
  • Present an in-game event hosted on this server or invite other players to participate in this event.
  • Talk about the server, its community, or its activities.

If you want to create a topic regarding a subject that is not on this list, please contact a moderator for authorization. The moderator will decide whether or not your topic belongs on a server forum.

What you cannot do on these forums is:

  • Flood, spam, repeatedly bump a topic (i.e. reply to it without adding new content in order to keep it at the top of the forum topics).
  • Create a topic to organize a dungeon other than an opening of the Lair of the Giant Kralove. There is an in-game Hiring Channel for that.
  • Create a hiring topic for a Guild without bothering to make a good presentation.
  • Create a topic in order to find a crafter. Tools exist in the game for this, and a search on the forum will allow you find artisans who are referenced.

"Role Playing" Forums

The three "Role Playing" forum sections are there to encourage role playing on DOFUS Touch and help players contact each other to organize in-game events or write background texts.

The "Fountain Square" forum serves as a billboard for in-game events. When volunteer events teams or players organize events, a topic can be posted in this section in addition to the topic on the concerned server's forum. Thus, we keep a list of all events on all servers combined so that each server's player can be inspired.

The "On the Events' Side" forum is the section devoted to contacts between players and event holders in the game. When organizing an in-game event, you may ask for advice, and call on an event organizer's help. It is very important to present your event plans so we can answer you effectively. Moderators are obviously allowed to close any topic without warning if it is not presented properly and according to the forum rules of good conduct.

The "Spitting Bwork Inn" is the role-play forum. Posts in this forum section must meet the writing criteria presented in the current pinned topics on the forum.

Development

The "Development" forum is reserved for suggesting new DOFUS Touch content and changes to existing gameplay elements. Topics in the "Developments" forum should focus on general game mechanisms (the breeding system, quests, marketplaces, etc.). Topics dealing with class rebalancing proposals should be reserved for class forums or the "General Discussions" forum when commenting on recent updates.

On this forum, you can create topics to:

  • Suggest new character classes be created.
  • Suggest a Postal Service being set up in DOFUS Touch.
  • Suggest changes to the breeding system.

On this forum, you cannot create topics:

  • Asking for a class's spell to be rebalanced.
  • Suggesting a profession revaluation.

Class Forums

These forums allow you to discuss the various aspects of each class, balancing modifications for their spells, and various character evolution possibilities.

On these forums, you can:

  • Create a topic to suggest changes to one or more of the class's spells.
  • Create a topic in order to discuss the latest changes made to the class by the game designers.
  • Create a topic to ask for advice on distributing your feature or spell points, or on choosing equipment.
  • Create a topic to present other players with a precise orientation for a character in the class.
  • Reply to existing topics in order to help other players.

On this forum, you cannot create topics to:

  • Rant in the heat of the moment after a class modification without bothering to test it.
  • Create a "Class X Is Too Strong" topic on the sole basis of your experience in a single PvP fight that you lost.

Crafting

This forum is both a place for trade and mutual aid between crafters and the center of suggestions for trade development in DOFUS Touch. It is also the perfect place to suggest an item be modified or to report a lack of items in a certain category.

On these forums, you can create topics to:

  • Ask for advice on how to gain experience more easily in your profession.
  • Suggest a profession revaluation.
  • Explain that a profession is too difficult to climb.
  • Report a lack of variety for a certain type of item.

On this forum, you cannot create topics to:

  • Search for a crafter (there are lists on the server forums and in-game tools for this).
  • Present your own professions (these messages have their place on the server forums).
  • Ask what the best cape for your character is (these messages have their place on the class forums).

Problems and Solutions

This forum is reserved exclusively for reporting technical problems involving the game. This includes login, display, proxy, latency, and installation problems, for example.

However, problems directly related to DOFUS Touch and its gameplay have absolutely no place here.

Please consult the Ankama Support team systematically before creating a new topic: https://support.ankama.com/hc/en#DOFUS Touch

Premium Bonuses and Payments

This forum is reserved exclusively for reporting problems related to payments on your account DOFUS Touch.

Please consult the Ankama Support team systematically before creating a new topic: https://support.ankama.com/hc/en

On this forum, you cannot create topics to:

  • Create a topic to propose changes to a class or profession, or the implementation of a whole new gameplay element. The "Development" forum, class forums, and "Professions" forum already have this function.
  • Debate Changes already applied to the classic servers.

Discussions About the Site and Forum

Videos

Any video containing content not in compliance with the DOFUS Touch Terms and Conditions or these rules of good conduct on the forum will be censured without warning, and the person who published it will be sanctioned.

Fan-Art

This forum is devoted to presenting the various creations by community of players. Images, music, animations, texts, etc. All creations have their place in this forum, provided that they are linked to the DOFUS Touch world.
