0 downloads WELCOME to 3 Dogs Arcade (The Dog Pound)
Here at 3 Dogs arcade, like any other site, we have rules and below you will find a list of those rules. This is not an all inclusive list, but one that pretty much highlights what our site is about and how we like to run our site Please familiarize yourself with these rules, and if you agree with them, Welcome to our home, if you do not agree with our rules, I am sure you will find another place on the internet, and we do hope that you enjoy your stay no matter where it might be.
FORUMS - We encourage member participation in the forums, but it is not a requirement that you post here. Member participation will encourage others to join us here and makes for a better site.
- Swearing - Swearing in the forums or any other area of the site is forbidden, we attempt to run a family site here and with that, we try and keep it safe for children visitors to the site. We do realize that on occasion a swear word will slip out, not a problem we all do it, but, for those who continue to "slip" you will be warned by a member of the staff and subsequently banned from the site if it were to continue.
- PORN - Will absolutely not be tolerated on this site anywhere. Any posting of PORN or links to porn of any kind will prompt an immediate ban from the site and your IP will be turned over to the appropriate authorities
- Posting - Please keep in mind that this is a family site and that children may visit at anytime, make your posts with children in mind, what would you want your children subject too ? IF you are the owner of more than one site and are requesting support, please let us know which site you need support for.
- SHOUTBOX - The shoutbox is utilized on this site for chatting with other members and therefore promoting good times, it is not a place where you can request support, that is what the forums are for, so please do not request support in the shoutbox Swearing, porn and posting in the shoutbox, follow the same guidelines as set above for the forums
ARCADE - The arcade is obviously the main focus of our site. We have over 9000 games on this site with the ability to add more games at the click of a button. We try and be as fair as we can with the arcade, and reset scores from time to time (Hall Of Fame scores do not get deleted). This is where most of our rules come into play, so bear with us and read these rules carefully, if you have any questions about these, or any of the rules for this site, feel free to contact a member of the staff.
- SHADOWING - Is against the rules on this site. Shadowing, as defined by our site is when a member(s) follow another member around playing the same games. This is not only annoying but is not fair to the member(s) that you are following. To try and alleviate "shadowing" we give a member a 1 hour gloating period. What this means is that if a member (any member) has just posted a score, give them at least an hour before playing the same game. We are all about competition and it is not against the rules to play the same games as another member, but do it with respect for other members. We have over 9000 games here and it should not be difficult to find another game to play for an hour. IF YOU ARE BEING SHADOWED AND IT ANNOYS YOU, YOU NEED TO LET US KNOW, WE CANNOT DO ANYTHING IF YOU DO NOT SAY ANYTHING.
- FIRST OFFENSE - 24 hour ban from the arcade
- SECOND OFFENSE - 48 - 72 hour ban
- THIRD OFFENSE - BANNED permanently from the arcade
- Games that appear in the NEW GAMES category are OPEN PLAY for the time that they appear in that category (normally 5 days) this means that there are no restrictions for games in that category (shadowing rules do not apply in the new games category)
- CHEATING - Is not tolerated here by member or staff. Just because you cannot beat a score that has been set by another member, or you have not see a score that high on any of the other sites you have visited, or they regain a score on a game that you thought the score could not get any higher on, does not necessarily mean that they are cheating. IF you suspect another member or staff member of cheating, please PM one of the administrators and we will investigate the incident.
- GAMES NOT WORKING - IF you happen to come across a game that is not functioning correctly (not loading, not saving scores etc...) please use the Report Game link that is found with every game on the site. This will create a post in the forum which will assist me in keeping track of games that have been reported and what had to be done to resolve the issue.
- POINTS SYSTEM - We have a points system that we use for the Arcade. You can win points in the arcade and use them to buy special items in the ibEconomy shop (still being implemented) such as name color. We do not have ibEconomy entirely set up, but it is coming. Another way to earn points is by participation in the forums. At some point in the near future, the only way you will be able to play games in the arcade will be determined by the number of points you have in your account.
As stated above, this is not an "all inclusive" list of all the rules on this site, and we will update these rules from time to time. It is your responsibility to be familiar with these rules, so please keep checking back for any possible changes. Once again if you have any questions regarding these rules, feel free to contact a member of the staff, welcome to 3 Dogs arcade, we hope you enjoy your stay
