We here at the IMVU Mafias' want to offer a quality forum for everyone to get together, socialize, shop and learn.

To that end we would like to keep our forums free of clutter, spam, and hateful content. So we ask that everyone please follow these guidelines when using our forums.

Users violating our rules & etiquette will receive a warning, their post deleted and any medits earned from said posts removed. Continued violation will result in the removal of your ability to post on the forums. Users who receive more than 3 warnings will have their account closed.

Rules & Etiquette
  • Do not spam
  • Do not post hateful content.
  • Do not flame, harass or attack other members.
    • Cursing is allowed as long as it is not directed at another member in a derogatory manner.
  • Do not post your IMVU name on the public forums or shoutbox unless allowed by Mafias Staff.
  • Do not give your IMVU password to anyone.
  • Do not give your Mafia password or login name to anyone.
  • Do not create multiple Mafia accounts.
  • Do not post adult content outside of the Adult Corner forum.
    • Consensual adult content is allowed in Private Messages
  • Do not create duplicate threads or posts.
  • Do not create posts regarding black hat h4c|<s, crash codes, lag products or any other malicious content.
  • Do not create posts regarding anything listed in the market prohibited items and services above.
  • All posts must be written in English. Please use a translator if necessary
  • Use the search feature before posting questions to make sure they haven't already been answered.
  • Avoid double posting outside your own topics.
  • Do not bump (this means reply to) old topics from before 2017 excluding topics creating by staff for official topics such as IMVULite.
  • Do not try to circumvent our word censors.
  • Do not post 1-2 word thank you type posts.
    • If you would like to post your gratitude for a post you found valuable, please do so in a way that contributes to the topic. Such as explaining why you appreciate what they posted. Alternatively, if you have nothing to post, you can visit the poster's profile to give them karma to show your appreciation.
  • Do not post entirely in emoji
    • Emoji only posts are allowed in the Social Games forum when/if the social game actually makes use of emoji.
  • Do not post in all caps
  • Do not attempt to farm medits.
    • Large copypastas, song lyrics or other long form copy/pastes must be wrapped in quote tags. See our Introduction to BBCode Part 2 tutorial to learn how to use quotes.
    • Number counting social games are not acceptable.

Breaking the forum rules is not a good way to earn medits. Medits are to be earned, if you have absolutely nothing to post about then play the lottery and log in every day to receive your daily medit reward.

Another great way to earn medits is by posting bugs to me. If you find something broken on the site, send me a pm and I'll reward you with some medits.

The rule about posting only emoji only applies to the forums, not the shoutbox. You're good.

I just wanted to comment on this so as to bring it back into the forfront in recent so that those that are new to the Mafia may have a chance to read the rules about the forums. This way it does not become buried and become a unread thread which is of high importance.
