For the purpose of this policy, “trading” is defined as: When a player exchanges Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency with another player for Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency.
“Cross-site trading” is defined as: When a player who plays Flight Rising and another virtual pet game wants to exchange Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency with another player for the other virtual pet game’s virtual items. Cross-site trading is done at the player's own risk.
“Supported” is defined as: In the event something goes wrong with the trade, Flight Rising Support will be able to provide assistance.
“Unsupported” is defined as: In the event something goes wrong with the trade, Flight Rising Support will not be able to provide assistance.
Cross-site trading is allowed so long as the other game is a virtual pet game that expressly permits (consents) to cross-site trading. In this case, you may engage in cross-site trades using our items, dragons, or virtual currency.
NOTE: Cross-site trading is done at the player's own risk.
Are three way trades allowed? (July 13, 2020)
No. Only trades between the player with the item and the player seeking the item are allowed.
Player A buys an art commission slot from Player B using real world currency.
Player C then trades A for the art commission slot using Flight Rising gems.
This is effectively buying gems with real world currency from a third-party. This type of trade is not allowed and will result in the closure of all accounts involved.
Only Flight Rising trades can be negotiated on Flight Rising. (July 13, 2020)
Do not use the Flight Rising website to negotiate a trade between two other games/websites.
What games are not allowed for cross-site trading?
You may not trade our items, dragons, or currency with another virtual pet site that does not clearly consent to their items or virtual currency being traded with another site. In other words, the absence of “No” is not “Yes.”
You may not trade our items, dragons, or virtual currency with any of the following. This includes but is not limited to:
- Any virtual pet site game in an alpha or beta state 1
- Facebook games
- Any Nintendo IP or games that use Nintendo IP 2
- Any Pokemon IP or games that use Pokemon IP 2
- Any Animal Crossing IP or games that use Animal Crossing IP 2 (July 13, 2020)
- Any other game not in our genre
You also may not trade or sell our items, dragons, or virtual currency for any of the following. This includes but is not limited to:
- Real world currency
- Any game code that is for anything other than Flight Rising 3 (July 13, 2020)
- Any virtual currency that can be converted to real world currency
- Steam gift cards
- Digital gift cards
- Tangible gift cards
- Tangible items with real-world currency value
What types of trades are allowed and supported?
Trades that only involve Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency and are fully negotiated on the Flight Rising website. (July 13, 2020)
What types of trades are allowed but unsupported?
- Eligible cross-site trades
- Flight Rising to Flight Rising trades that are negotiated on a third-party platform (Slack, Discord, etc) (July 13, 2020)
1 Games that are in an alpha or beta state are by definition unstable and subject to change. There is always the chance the account will be reset or items removed from the game. Once a game in our genre (virtual pet site) is live (officially open) and explicitly allows cross-site trading, Flight Rising players may engage in cross-site trades with the virtual pet site in question.
2 The Flight Rising team is aware that there are companies which are okay with fan made games using their IP for fan projects. Unlike fan projects, Flight Rising started as and remains a business. Allowing cross-site trades with games that use another company’s IP can and could be seen as making money off of their trademark and copyright. As Flight Rising is a business, we have chosen to err on the side of caution and not allow these trades.
3 Redemption codes for games other than Flight Rising cannot have their validity independently verified by our Support team. When this happens a Flight Rising player could be scammed for a significant number or value of Flight Rising currency, dragons, or items (ex: Kickstarter items). In order to protect our community, trades for non-Flight Rising redemption codes are not allowed. (July 13, 2020)
