    As you know, Every pet site you visit, has a set of 'rules'.
    I was just wondering, How many of the VPL users have read the above fully?

    @Lion All the rules on pet sites all seem to be the same, just worded differently. Some have strict rules in regards to "talking about other pet sites", where others allow their users to have more freedom.

    @cpvr. I know they're pretty much the same, but sometimes people read the rules every time to make sure they don't do anything wrong.
    I don't like to receive warnings, Which is from now on, I will be reading them every time.

    I read all the rules in every pet site as much as I can, like how I'd try to find the rules sticky for every forum I join. The last thing I want to do is get myself in trouble for a silly rule I didn't know about.

    Would you believe that YayDigis had a rule where you're only allowed to role-play as the pets you own? People there would showcase their pets, saying they're up for role-play. Sometimes they'll pretend they're human. What if I had a pet named Anna but I wanted to roleplay as a guy named David? Nope! YayDigis says no to that!

    A totally ridiculous rule, but I should have read about it before.

    I read the rules every time. I need to know what I can talk about and how mature I'm allowed to be, or if it's a "kiddie" site (Neopets and Paladore fit this) where everything needs to be safe for the children.

    I absolutely always read the rules. I do not frequently re-read though as most suggest. I think it's unfair to tell a user it is their responsibility to basically read the rules every hour of the day because they shouldn't have to tell you they were updated. Just my opinion though.

    Omg, I love that thing!! LOL
    We shouldn't change it.. we should turn it into a link that if you click, it brings up our ToS.
    Ohohoh! I could always write up our ToS/rules?

    OH WOW, I'm off topic.

    Sorry! XD

    Yea, I always try to read the rules, but sometimes I know I won't be doing anything else except stalking, so I don't.
    but if I dig it immediately, the rules are the first thing I read.

    Hahaha. I'm welcome anywhere ^.^ I read the rules, the terms, and everything else to make sure I can crack jokes if I can or something. XD;)
    But then again, there's only a few pet sites that I check out - on their forums and such.

    It'd probably be a good idea to read our rules, lol.
    Mainly if you're an active poster and active in the community. Every petsite's regulations are relatively the same, and become flexible around a point, depending at what age group they are aimed at. For example, on Subeta, you can say what orientation your pet or 'character' is on their lookup, but if you even try to say, or even imply, that your pet is 'homosexual' then you'll be warned in an instance.
    This is not to say, however, that Neopets is anything like Subeta.

    I always read the rules no matter what. I read them before I join, after I join, when I'm bored, and I sometimes read the privacy policy too.

    I'm serious. I don't know why I like reading rules, but I do.

    I skim read (quickly) but if I'm posting something I'm not sure about I check the rules and if I'm still unsure I go ahead and ask a mod and check any/all FAQ. I am careful so in most cases I don't have to worry. But if in doubt, get the rules out (my personal rule of thumb).
