Severe or brazen infractions will result in deletion of all items and permanent game bans. THIS IS YOUR ONLY WARNING.

Warehousing or Holding of Horses

Players found to be accessing the game in such fashion, or to have exploited a glitch to their benefit will be subject to penalties.
"Proxy Hopping", spoofing and jumping are not allowed
Altering your IP via proxies, VPNs or spoofing in order to gain more views for your pets is not allowed.
It is normal and typical for your IP address to change as you move about your day (depending on your provider and circumstances) so unless you are actively cycling through proxies and vpns this rule will probably not apply to you. If you have no idea what this section means it almost surely does not apply to you. :)
Please note also (as per the EULA) that any kind of automated script is also not permitted. Please do your own clicking!
Snaplinks, CloseIt, GreaseMoney etc are not automated scripts. Those are gameplay tools. Automated scripts play the game for you.
Penalties and Violations
All rules violations will be dealt with according to severity and priority disciplinary history. All decisions made by the game staff are final.
