The Flight Rising forums are public. What is posted is visible to anyone who visits the forums. The content on our forums can have an impact on them, positive or negative. Forum etiquette consists of basic courtesies and expectations which help create an enjoyable atmosphere and experience for our community. These are meant to complement our Code of Conduct, not replace it so please read this article thoroughly.
In order to provide a consistent experience for our players, if a thread or post does not meet these expectations they will be moderated appropriately. This moderation is not likely to result in any forum penalties; however, forum penalties may be issued in the event the behavior is repeated or the account has a history of rule violations in our forums.
Moderation happens for a reason and posting about forum moderation is not permitted. In the event your thread or post is moderated and you disagree with this action, you can submit an appeal by sending the Flight Rising team a message through Contact Us. (03/24/2018)

While you are not obligated to reply, by posting anywhere in our forums you understand you are participating in discussion forums and will most likely receive replies from other members of the Flight Rising community.
Read the stickies at the top of each forum, especially Welcome to the Forums!
If you are looking for help, use Forum Search to see if someone has posted about the topic in the past - the answer may be there!

Posting Threads and Replies
The Flight Rising website is a game and our forums should reflect this.
We ask that you refrain from posting about such topics like religion and politics, providing or seeking medical advice, or treating our forums like your private personal blog or social media account. (Updated June 1, 2022)
URL shorteners mask the destination location of the link, preventing you from seeing exactly where the link goes when hovered over or when using ‘Inspect’. They also collect data, including location data, on the person clicking. They are intended for brand accounts on social media to use where character limitations may exist and/or data on the audience who clicks is needed. On a social media post, a large amount of generalized information is collected. In a forum, it might only be your information collected. (June 1, 2022)
Thread titles should be relevant to the topic.
They don't always have to be fully descriptive but if you choose to use a "My reaction/that feeling when" or one word style thread titles, please do your best to communicate the topic:
- [Coli] That feeling when...
- [Gathering] Whyyyy
- [Nests] It finally happened!
Threads are not required to be tagged in this manner, but it will help your fellow players identify a topic they may be interested in. In the event a discussion forum becomes overrun with reaction style or one word thread titles, you may find your thread title is moderated to reflect the main topic.
Thread titles should not be in all-capital letters or random mix of capital and non-capital letters.
- TITLES SHOULD NOT LOOK LIKE THIS

When you type in 'all caps', you are more or less shouting at the person reading your post. There's nothing wrong with that in the body of the post or reply, but a forum of 'all caps' thread titles is a forum where everyone shouts at or over each other. That's not fun or enjoyable.
Threads should be on topic for the forum they are in.
If the thread is in a discussion forum, it should be open to discussion. Private messages are best suited for private discussions. If the thread is in a sales forum, it must be open and looking to sell, buy, or trade.
Refrain from reviving old threads unless the content is relevant and constructive.
Threads in discussion forums often come to their natural conclusion and fall back to older forum pages as more active discussions receive replies. Bumping these threads back up for the sake of doing so is spam. However we understand that on rare occasion, the thread may be relevant to someone seeking help or the posting player returns. These instances are reviewed on a case-by-case basis. (Updated June 1, 2022)
Be considerate of your fellow players when posting.
Threads and posts should not use font formatting that may make the text difficult for others to read, such as using fonts that are excessively small, large, or light in color.
Gifs should not have bright flashing colors or lights, nor should they involve the kind of bouncing or movement that could cause dizziness, nausea, seizures, etc.
Do not post “Goodbye” threads.
If you want to host a giveaway in the Raffles & Giveaway forum because you feel your time on Flight Rising has reached a stopping point and would like to distribute your items or dragons throughout the community so they can continue to be enjoyed, that’s okay. We’re sorry to see you go, but we understand and we hope to see you again in the future!
What is not okay is posting a “goodbye” thread that is a thinly (or not so thinly) veiled call-out of the Flight Rising community, volunteers, or team. Threads of this nature fall under our rules on Harassment and Non-Gameplay Feedback. (June 1, 2022)
Do not post “vent,” “pet peeve,” or “unpopular opinion” threads
These types of threads are most often passive-aggressive or veiled call-outs or otherwise negatively themed threads meant to target other players and how they play the game. Even if you sincerely intend for your thread to be different from the others, over the years this particular category of thread has demonstrated a consistent pattern of inviting rule-breaking behavior from others.
