Updates
August 26, 2015: No new rules. Format changes only.
October 23, 2014: Suggestion on giveaway hosts and posting their IGN.
May 27, 2014: Clarification on multiple forum accounts.
September 11, 2013: Minimum rep rule for giveaway hosts.



Rule #1 - Don't beg for any Guardian Cross stuff.
Please do not ask others to give you stuff.

Rule #2 - A reputation of 20 is required to host a giveaway.
This is due to the constant conflicts and doubts about the legitimacy of items being handed out. Any violations will be warned and topics deleted. Repeating offenses will result in severe consequences.

Rule #3 - No cross-game giveaways.
Giveaways involving other games, such as use of other games' referrals, items, participating in other games' tournaments, and whatnot are not allowed. However, games involving the likes of chess and snake are allowed. In case of doubt, please PM a yellow mod.

Rule #4 - Please add a date tag before or after your giveaway title, or in your first post.
This is to help make certain that the giveaway is at the least recent and active.

Rule #5 - No entering of multiple forum accounts in giveaways.
Any single person is only allowed to have one forum account. Violations will result in a permanent ban to all forum accounts connected. This is already a rule in the Code of Conduct, but there have been many who have been taking part in multiple giveaways with many forum accounts.

Rule #6 - Giveaway hosts may not ask participants of a giveaway to send them any in-game items via gifts and/or trades.
Please check the Code of Conduct. Repeated offenses will be warned. Examples include asking participants to gift 5*s as part of a raffle, or asking participants to send over a Guardian as proof of finishing a task.

Random Commentary #1 - Be happy that people are giving away any Guardian Cross items.
Please do not get upset if their way of giving away is "stupid" or "unfair." It is their choice of how they want to give away THEIR possessions. It is, nevertheless, alright to report if the giveaway is abusive, or against the rules of the forum.

HOWEVER, it is simply unjust if the participants put in effort for the giveaway, only for the host to disappear and/or not give the prizes away. Think twice before even having a giveaway.

Random Commentary #2 - A big THANK YOU would always be nice to everyone following the rules, to the giveaway hosters, and to those who make giveaways fun by taking part. Smile

Suggestion #1: Giveaway holders are advised to update participants regarding their rules, prizes, and giveaways as a whole.
In case of changes to the rules, prizes, and simply updating a part of the giveaway, please tell the giveaway participants.

Suggestion #2: Giveaway holders are advised to clearly post what IGN they will be sending giveaway prizes from in the first post of their giveaway.
This is so that the people receiving the free items will not be paranoid when they see gifts from unknown IGNs.

Thanks - rule added


Rules as of 12/23/2014
Rule #0 - To give away any Guardian Cross items (be it Guardians or Stat/Skill Stones), you should have built up at least 20 rep points (rule in effect from 11th of May 2013); Taking part with multiple forum accounts in Giveaways is unfair and absolutely not allowed.

Rule #1 - No cross-game giveaways (Not exhaustive: referrals/other-game cards/guardians/stones)

Rule #2 - Don't beg for any Guardian Cross items.

Rule #3 - Don't beg for any Guardian Cross items.

Rule #4 - This forum section is for hosting GIVEAWAYS - Don't beg for any Guardian Cross items.

Rule #5 - Be happy that people are giving away any Guardian Cross items. Don't get upset if their way of giving away is "stupid" or "unfair." It is their choice of how they want to give away THEIR possessions!

Rule #6 - Don't beg for any Guardian Cross items - The moderators will close your thread if you do.

Rule #7 - Please add a date tag before or after your giveaway title in this format: [DD/MM/YYYY]. <--Added 4/4/2013 By Sorairo

Rule #8 - Due to the constant conflicts and doubts about the legitimacy of the Guardian Cross items being handed out, we now require you to have at least 20 Rep to be able to host a giveaway. Any violations will be warned and deleted. Repeating offenses will result in severe consequences. <--Added 17/5/2013 By Sorairo

Rule #9.1 - Due to the many who have been taking part in multiple giveaways with many forum accounts, we want to point out again the Code of Conduct here. Any single person is only allowed to have one forum account, violations will result in permanent ban to all forum accounts. <-- Added 27/5/2014 By Remini

Rule #9.2 - Giveaway hosters may not ask for any in-game items via gifts/trades from the participants of a giveaway. Please check the Code of Conduct. Repeated offenses will be warned. <-- Added 23/12/2014 By Remini

Rule #10 - A big THANK YOU would always be nice to everyone following the rules, to the giveaway hosters and to those who make giveaways fun by taking part Smile

Suggestion: Giveaway holders should post what IGN they will be sending the Gifts from clearly in the OP. This is so that the people receiving the free items will not be paranoid when they see Gifts from unknown IGNs.


Edit by nutmagz @9/11/13 to ensure no guardian cross items are given without minimum rep.
Edit by Remini @5/27/14 to clarify no one is unfairly taking part in giveaways with multiple forum accounts.
Edit by BoomerBaby @10/23/2014 to help "Winners" know what IGN will send their prizes.

Thank you.

Post Rule: If a giveaway is started, there is no backing out of it. It's sort of like abuse of the post and trolling people.

Also, requiring people to give you something in return should be banned if it's not mentioned in the OP.

This blew my mind when it happened.

Post Addition Rule (Errrm.. not seem like a rule, just something that should do. In my opinion, anyway.)
- If there is something change in the rule, please do something to let people know that "it was changed", such as, use "edited#...", use color, use bold, etc. And in some cases, not just edit it without anything to notify them. The purpose here is to help all players to still have their chances, not just lost them because they do something right for the old rule but wrong for the new one.
- You have to keep your words. If you say you will give, you have to give.
- Etc.

Maybe, you should add "participant's rule", too (again.. seem like what should be done or keep in mind), such as...
- If giveaway required you to confirm something back when you win, you should frequently check on that thread and make sure that 'if you win, you will know it quickly'. So, in case of you have to choose something before the other one, he or she can get their reward before they forgot about that giveaway and lost their chance to get those thing just because someone's fault.
- Even if you help those who make up giveaway in some way, such as, do summary, do many bump, give them card to increase prize or help on finding some information, it's still their (giveaway's owner) decision to decide on whether they will give some reward for those who help them or not.
- Don't choose, if rule don't allow you.
- Please read the whole rule before participate.
- Etc.
