Offensive language:Most explicit language can be used on WoB, due to it being automatically censored by WoB's language filter (users can freely opt to disable it in which case they will see the original words). Attempting to circumvent the language filter (e.g. by replacing a letter of an explicit word with a similar looking number/symbol) is not allowed. A couple exceptions not allowed are listed below.
Despite most explicit language being allowed, severe statements of sexism/racism, particularly condoning or encouraging violence or treating people in a lesser manner due to their sex/race are NOT allowed.
Explicit/graphic description of sexual acts, or terms commonly used only for sexual acts are not permitted in any publicly visible areas, and may be considered harassment in private messages unless both users condone it.
Discussion of the usage or encouraging the usage of illegal substances is prohibited. Illegal substances can be discussed from a strictly non-use standpoint. Note: We operate in the USA and as Marijuana is not yet federally legal, it currently qualifies as an illegal substance under these rules and thus discussion of its use is not allowed.
Uncensored explicit language is not allowed in user pictures (avatars/custom battle icons/etc). Explicit language may be used in pictures in a user's journal if a clear warning of explicit language below is posted at least 1 desktop-size page above the first appearance of explicit language (About the height of the side menu on desktop, or about two full screens high in portrait mode on mobile)
Social & Public Areas
To maintain a positive experience for all users, the following guidelines have been made:
As this is an anime/manga-themed game, it can be expected that most of the userbase follows various ongoing manga/anime series. Since many people for various reasons do not read the manga, but only watch the anime, posting spoilers of things that have not happened in the anime yet of a major ongoing series (Naruto, One Piece, etc) is not allowed as it can significantly lessen the experience of watching the show. Exception: As the Bleach anime series stopped before the final arc of the manga and has not resumed for over 1 year with no announcement, discussion of the Bleach manga is not considered spoilers.
Exploiting bugs/glitches, attempting to hack/crack the site or its data, or changing site code is strictly prohibited. Any attempts will be met with severe punishment.
There is Zero Tolerance for planning attacks against other games, or sites in general, anywhere on World of Bleach. Any discussion of these topics is strictly forbidden and will be met with punishment as severe as the situation dictates.
Intentionally leaking confidential race information such as invasion/boss plans or timers in mixed chat is considered harassment.
Harassing, trolling, or otherwise pestering a user is not allowed. Harassment includes but is not limited to:
Inappropriate images/links are not allowed anywhere on this site. Content that is disallowed include, but is not limited to:
Staff has the right to tell a user to remove avatars or material from a journal if they feel it's inappropriate. Refusal to remove the content may result in forced removal of the content and/or warnings/bans. Avatars that cause lag in-battle will be removed as discovered. Links to sites that contain moderate amounts language unsuitable for WoB is allowed provided a clear warning is made in the post - this DOES NOT extend to your profile song. Links to sites/songs that violate the language rules without the appropriate warnings, or links that violate any other site rules, are strictly prohibited.
As the account owner, you are responsible for any actions made by your account. Therefore, actions made by your account will be treated as though you made them. Your sibling, cousin, pet, or other entity will not constitute a valid excuse to have disciplinary action undone.
Currency TransactionsTrading in-game yen/souls or Spirit Shards for real money/currency is not allowed. Spirit Shards must be purchased from the Buy Shards or Shard Exchange sections of Premium page. Spirit Shards can be traded for yen/souls through the Shard Exchange.
World of Bleach Staff
