Hey there, looks like you just wandered in. Why not have a look around and stay for a while, maybe even start your own adventure, if you're into that.

September 25th Update!

Hello everyone! We'd like to announce some new wishing well content,
rule updates, new forum sections, and our newly hired artist team.

We had a super fun stream this month working on various wishes for
new items and pets. 10 new clothing items and 1 new pet species
are now available to be obtained through gameplay!

If you would like to make a wish for a pet/item to be created for the
site, visit the Wishing Well thread!

RULE UPDATES
We've made the following changes to the Terms of Service and Rules of Conduct. This will require users to re-sign the Terms of Service across the site! All rule adjustments were made for better clarity and to stay up to date with the development of our community.

TERMS OF SERVICE UPDATES

Adoptables/Closed Species Definition Update
Under section III. User Conduct, Clause 9. “Cross-site Trading” - 2. Genres of games with which cross-site trading is not permitted, we've elaborated on what an Adoptable and “closed species” community includes:
Adoptable and “closed species” adoptable communities that have their own game-like elements, currency, or assets which can be traded outside of the community.

VPN Rule Update
We've removed the no VPN rule to adjust to the fact that VPN's have become more and more essential to daily life for many in recent years. Rather than a blanket ban on VPN's, we've added an FAQ disclaimer for their usage:

Q: Can Dappervolk be accessed while using a VPN?
A: Users may use a VPN when accessing the site at their own risk. Usage may cause IP-related overlaps with others users due to how many service providers distribute IPs to their users. As it is difficult to detect VPN usage, this could result in investigation or account actions being taken due to how account interaction may appear to Staff. 

RULES OF CONDUCT UPDATES

Referral Bribery
We've added a section to describe our stance on referral bribery which occurs off-site.

Scamming
We've updated our rules on Scamming and expanded it into a section of its own for better clarity.

NEW FORUM SECTIONS
With these rule updates, we've also updated the rules in some Forum Rules & Guideline thread as well as added brand new forums and subforums in order to better sort threads and provide spaces for activities that didn't exist before.
 
We'll be spending the next couple of weeks moving existing threads to the appropriate new forums. If you don't see your thread moved and would like it moved after a week, please send in a ticket to request it!

FORUM SECTION GUIDELINE UPDATES
We've added new rules & guideline threads stickied to the top of each new subforum:

Roleplay Content Guidelines
Events Forum Rules & Guidelines
Hangouts Rules & Guidelines
Customs Rules & Guidelines
Offsite Trades Rules & Guidelines
Art Posts Rules & Guidelines
Writing Commissions Rules & Guidelines
RP Classifieds Rules & Guidelines


We also updated the following existing forum stickies to stay in line with the updated content:

DV & Lore Rules & Guidelines
Tradesmarket Rules & Guidelines
Art Commissions Rules & Guidelines
RP & Writing Rules & Guidelines

    whats the difference between a petsite and an adoptable community with a website?
  • Villager XerxesTxToast (#51698) 27 Sep 2021, 12:29 pm
    Glad to hear there's more artists! I'm excited to see the site's progress, that's a LOT of new artists.

    Kinda bummed that I can't swap CS characters for potatoes anymore, but things gotta be reasonably enforceable for staff.

    Didn't have time to properly process the whole update due to sickness, but i got reminded of the additions and fixes to the forums and am very pleased to see steps being taken to organizing them much more. Certainly not every change I would have liked to see has occurred but more focused categories are absolutely a step into the right direction!

    congrats to all the new artist chosen! can't wait to see what all of you come up with <3
