anything that you would be ashamed of if your Mother or Grandmother saw you say or do the action.
* ClapAlong games are eligible for players of many different ages. Keep the conversations and words used appropriate as such. PG or PG13 is a good rule of
thumb to use here.

8. Problems with Rewards, Purchases, Lost Items or Contents must be submitted with tickets.
* The Moderators are more than willing to help resolve any issues that can be resolved; however any game rewards and/or Purchases cannot be handled by
the Moderator Staff. These issues MUST be presented in an Official Ticket. After that point, if you are not getting a response, you may post it in the forums
and LIMITED help can be provided at that point.
* Please do not post information from tickets in forums for the purpose of violating any of the above stated rules.

9. Do not bring your fight here.
* If your intent with a post is to cause a fight or aggression between yourself and another user, Moderator, Administrator, or ClapAlong, please stop where
you are and do not make the post. This would be in direct violation of the rules stated above.

Note: Contents that feature the above inappropriate elements may be deleted directly without warning. Those who seriously disobey the related rules will be banned to post or be punished with their accounts banned!




Penalty Rules

Those that keep disobeying the rules again and again will be punished with their accounts banned permanently. If you disagree with any penalty given to you, you may send a private message to an Administrator or open a Ticket to discuss the action. Creating a new account and discussing the penalty in open forum will result in the Post deletion and second account being banned as well.
