These are a set of rules you must follow when playing canvas.place. Depending on the severity, violations of these rules may result in a permanent ban.
Do not share or post graphic images for sadistic pleasure, glorification, or celebration of violence. canvas.place is targeted at many age ranges and people who may not want to see that.
No NSFW content
We're looking to expand into new markets, and we want a welcoming, respectful and safe community. We value everybody's art equally, and that won't change. However, NSFW art is now prohibited. We are targeted at many age ranges, and people who play may not want to see NSFW content. This extends to links, QR codes, or any other references to content outside of canvas.place as well. In addition to this, we have schools and other education groups interested in this project.
No offensive symbols or depictions
This includes any symbols relating to terrorism, racism, sexism, the promotion of self-harm or suicide, or ones intended to offend others. Examples of this include swastikas and the confederate flag.
No targeted harassment
Please respect every player. Do not threaten to harm another person or someone related to another person in any capacity, and do not make art depicting others in a negative or harassing manner.
No offensive words, phrases, or sentences
This includes excessive slurs, racist, sexist, transphobic, homophobic, and malicious text. In essence, don't create anything that discriminates or harasses a person or group.
Do not use bots
The aim of canvas.place is a social game where everyone can hang out and create cool art. We have anti-botting measures in place, so do not try and circumvent them.
Do not make alternate accounts
We limit all players to a single account to ensure fairness for everyone accross the board. If we see you using more than one account, we will take the appropriate actions to stop this and further sign ups.
Do not make accounts solely to grief
We welcome griefing to make space for new art and reinforce what made Place great in the first place. However, if you are not going to contribute anything other than trashing art, then you're not welcome here.
No other Place clones
As previously discussed, due to attacks on our website by other Place clones, the discussion of them is strictly prohibited.
Do not spam
Don't spam the chat with useless text or multiple messages that could have been sent in one. This may result in a ban.
