Hey everyone! Long time no see. With the recent major updates to FairyABC, combined with what's going on in the world right now, there's been an influx of new players. However, with this comes an issue: the rules. When you click "sign me up", it shows the old version of the rules, which state this:

1. No bullying
2. No swearing
3. No illicit content
4. No explicit content
5. No illegal content (which is the same as illicit?)
6. No spamming content.
I know that there IS another, more recent (from 2017) set of rules at the top of the page, but when someone is signing up for the game, they're NOT likely to open that when they just read what they thought were the rules. This should be fixed to where the user agreement has the FULL rules.
Another issue is that NOWHERE in either of the rules states the username regulations. Yeah, not using swear words in a username is a given, but things like "witch," "magic," "trash," "punk," "bad," "dark," "stinky," "evil," "cryptid," "sultry," or ANYTHING Disney or Harry Potter-related. None of these words mean anything bad on their own, and they're usually just edgy teens. Most of the people on this site are older teens or young adults, the youngest person I've met was 9 going on 10 and that was quite a while ago, they'd probably be 13 now. There is nothing wrong with a username like "darkphoenix13."
When it comes to Disney and Harry Potter usernames, THIS GAME IS BASED OFF OF A DISNEY PROPERTY, and is going to attract Disney fans. Obviously they're going to show their love for the studio with a username based off of it. The reasoning behind this rule is confusing. For Harry Potter, that's one of the most popular franchises in the world, like Disney it has fans who want to name their accounts after it.
And yes, I know you can change your username. But as a new member of this forum, you may have a difficult time using it. I know I was confused. Someone may not notice they have a notification or PM, this website is honestly a little "outdated" and there is a learning curve. There needs to be a less vague guideline to this kind of stuff, so we can prevent it from happening in the first place.
I think fixing these two simple problems has had a long time coming, and with the current state of the website it's more important now than ever.

I agree with you, Tori. Rule revisions such as these have been on my mind [other staff too] recently among other changes that need to be made following the growth of fabc.

I and several others have been thinking that a Never Council meeting needs to be held soon to address not only this, but the numerous other issues that have seemingly slipped through the cracks in the past year or so. I think it's the best way to get everyone in one place and to have these important discussions cohesively and effectively so that we can be more organized and purposeful going into the future. So, Su, if you are reading this, consider this my official proposal: We need a Never Council meeting!

I agree the rules are vague. A while ago, I noticed a 'Potter' account was banned because no Potter username was allowed. I was not aware my username was against a rule, nobody ever said anything to me. I already asked Jasper, he said it was fine. I already used my chance username thing so I can't.

Not only should we update the rules for today's need as well as future needs, we should also fix the glitch where no new account can join 1.0 or at least let everyone know 1.0 only works for veteran accounts, e.g. made before the comment update allowing newer accounts to comment and customise their pages, among other nifty things. Also, I definitely agree that a Never Council meeting is long overdue.
