Do not write in any language other than English in the public forums, shout, guestbook, banner or your
profile. If you choose to speak in another language, then you must translate
the other language to English.
Failure to do so will result in punishment.
Inappropriate usernames with sexual content, profanity of any kind or references to substance use are not permitted. Accounts with inappropriate
usernames will be given a period of notice for the username to be changed,
failure or refusal to change the name will result in the account being timed-out
For Example: If your forum banner contains a curse word, sexual content or something offensive to other
players, you will be asked to remove it. If you do not, you're subject to time-out
Swearing is permitted given it is not done in the shouts, thread/blog titles, usernames, record labels, banners, or at other users.
For Example: Obvious enough, don't curse at other people in a malicious way but also please refrain from using
curse words or vulgar language in the titles of your threads and in any shouts
that you create. These posts show up on the front page, and it may be
off-putting to people viewing the site for the first time.
Advertising other websites is not permitted. Users may discuss other sites but accounts created solely to advertise will be deleted. You can post your social media accounts, but that’s at your own risk.
Virtual Popstar encourages suggestions to help improve the user experience. However, these suggestions should be constructive. It is not
permitted to speak negatively of the site or its staff in the forums, shouts,
etc. If you have a complaint or have a suggestion, it should either be passed
on privately to the administration or moderators via the report function.
For Example: If a designer should post a design asking for opinions, it's not tolerated to be overly rude.
Calling someone's design ugly is not going to help them improve, telling them
that they could use a little more shading in certain parts is constructive
criticism that allows them to improve.
Posting misleading links to jump scares, inappropriate content or showing images that are against the rules of Virtual Popstar is forbidden.
Clickbait titles are also not allowed, they’re a pain in the butt for everyone.
It is not permitted to divulge personal information to others,this includes but is not limited to: postal addresses, phone numbers, and passwords.
This is to ensure the safety of the community. Posts containing personal
information will be deleted. Since selling your account involves giving out your
password, it is not allowed.
Spamming is not permitted. Spamming includes but is not limited to:
- more than one of the same topic
- more than two messages in the shout
- spreading chain letters.
- multiple ‘I quit’ thread topics
- threads telling friends to check their mails
- useless/unclear topics
- bumping up old threads that have no reason to be brought back up
- more than two of the same posts in a row
A good rule of thumb is to post no more than 2 times in a row within a 10 minute period.
Constantly begging for Popdollars, credits and/or clothes is not permitted as it is a form of harassment. It is permitted to create a single
thread asking for help, but mass messaging or spamming is not. If you
message someone asking if they want to sell an item and they say no, there's no
reason for you to ask them every day after that.

- using bots to get PromotionPoints

- manipulating glitches within the game.
- abuse of a glitch in the system
- cheating in team competitions and Virtual Popstar games

If you scam another player and are found guilty via screenshots, you will receive a timeout, minimum of 24 hours. If
after 24 hours you won't return the item/pd/cr that doesn't belong to you, more
time will be added and you're subject to banishment.
Virtual Popstar is an online community game, not a dating game. If you want to find love, try another website.
The report button is used to report posts and messages that are against the rules and/or harming a user on Virtual Popstar. Before hitting the
report button be sure to check the VP rules to know if a player is breaking a
rule and use your own discretion to gauge whether a person is joking or
actually being offensive. If you are unsure, there is no harm in messaging
an online moderator and asking. Misuse of the report function is prohibited.
On Virtual Popstar bullying is not something we take lightly. Bullying includes but is not limited to:
- name calling
- making fun of another player
- attacking, ganging up on, and calling out another player
- being disrespectful to another player
- swearing maliciously at another player
- sharing someone’s personal information that they don’t want others to know
- spreading rumors
For Example: If a player voices an opinion it's not tolerated to verbally abuse them because their opinion doesn't
match yours. This verbal abuse is and not limited to: direct curses at the
player, death threats, name calling, false-reporting all of their posts, and unnecessary
rude comments directed at the player.
See Bullying. Harassment of other users directly or indirectly is prohibited.
For Example: If someone does something to upset you, it is not tolerated for you to create a thread
explaining why that person is a bad person. It is also not permitted to attack
them via personal message, guestbook, shout or in the threads. If you have a
problem with someone, message them and try to work it out yourself. If you need
help, check to make sure they've actually broken a rule and if so, report them
to a MOD via the report button.
Drug Related Discussion
Discussion of drugs is strictly prohibited. This includes but is not limited to:
- descriptions of drug use
- promoting drug use
- tips for acquiring drugs
If you wish to have discussions related to drugs, join the MatureContentSection group label.
Discussions that include pornographic pictures, videos, erotica,nudity, designs with nudity or overly-detailed descriptions of sexual
experiences are not allowed. Virtual Popstar classifies female nipples as
nudity. Individual cases will be dealt with by moderator discretion.
For Example: Discussions about your sexual escapades will not be tolerated, the thread will be deleted immediately
and immediate punishment will ensue. There are children on this site that don't
need to be reading your lewd stories.
If you wish to have discussions related to drugs, join the MatureContentSection group label
Glorification of Self Harm
Discussion of self harm in a positive light, asking for, or showing, images of self-harm is not permitted. Virtual Popstar is a supportive
site and promotion of damaging behavior is not permitted.
Posting links to, videos, or images of gore/graphic violence is not permitted. The discussion of current affairs such as wars is
permitted provided graphic, unsettling images are not posted.
Malicious comments directed at any specific race, culture, religious group, beliefs, genders will not be tolerated and will result in punishment.
The use of words or phrases that have a history of being offensive/derogatory
to people of a specific race, ethnicity, or any other affiliation is not
permitted by anyone. The only exception to the rule would be if you're having a
discussion about the origin of the word, but it should not be used to refer to
any person on the site or posted in a quote where it can be seen as being
directed towards someone.
For Example: Your personal opinion of the "n word" does not apply to the rules. Whether
you feel there is a difference between using it with an -a or with an -er, you
should still refrain from using the word on VP at all. It is offensive to
many people, and it is not worth the trouble of offending someone when you can
use another word instead. If you are concerned about whether a word is okay to
use, please message an online moderator for help.
If fighting is occurring, or about to occur, the thread will be locked.
Breaking one or more of the following rules stated above can result in a warning or time-out. Reasoning for time-outs will be
attached to the time-out message. If you don’t agree with a warning or time-out
you can mail a mod or the admin and we’ll look into it and see if we can remove
it from the system after the duration of the time-out is finished. Coming
online with a side-account while a time-out is active is not prohibited, and
could result in a longer time-out.
In this thread:
some examples have been created to give a better understanding of the consequences for rule breaking.
Virtual Popstar aims to be a fun, safe community for all users to enjoy.
For this reason, any case of rule breaking and its punishment is subject to moderator discretion.
History of rule breaking will be considered in all cases.
