Pixels is committed to providing a friendly, safe, trustworthy and comfortable environment for all, regardless of sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, mental illness, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, age, or level of experience.
Team members, moderators and community members are expected to proactively support the creation of this environment within the Pixels metaverse, Discord, Twitter, and other associated platforms.
The goal of this document is to set the overall tone for our community. This isn't an exhaustive list of things you can and can't do. Rather, take this document in the spirit in which it's intended, and try to be your best self.

Pixels is a PG, family-friendly game. Sexual, abusive or malicious content will not be tolerated.
When participating in communication of any kind (chat, voice communication), you are responsible for how you express yourself. You may not use language that could be offensive or vulgar to others.
Hate speech and discriminatory language is inappropriate, as is any obscene or disruptive language. Threatening or harassing another player is always unacceptable, regardless of language used. Violating any of these expectations will result in account restrictions. More serious and repeated violations will result in greater restrictions.
If you chose to use a Pixels avatar, the name you chose is subject to the same rules established above. Any name the player has the ability to customize must be appropriate and inoffensive. Any name that violates our standards or disrupts the community will be changed, and additional limitations may be placed on the offending account per our discretion.
Cheating in any fashion will result in immediate action. Using third-party programs to automate any facet of the game, exploiting bugs, or engaging in any activity that grants an unfair advantage is considered cheating.
Exploiting other players is an equally serious offence. Scamming, or anything else that may degrade the gaming experience for other players will receive harsh penalties.
Farm Land Design
Sexual, racist, sexist, abusive or harmful designs will not be tolerated. This may include the arrangement of floor tiles or objects to depict an inappropriate image.
Abuse of the link feature will not be tolerated. This includes linking to sexual, abusive or malicious websites.
NFT collections that depict inappropriate language or imagery will not be integrated into the Pixels metaverse. Examples include (but are not limited to):
Sexual imagery or naming
Racist or abusive imagery or naming
Sexist imagery or naming
The Pixels team has the right to refuse integration into the Pixels metaverse.
Logs and Records in Discord
Please be mindful that things you say may at some point become public. We cannot prevent people from screenshotting or otherwise logging the server. We also can't guarantee that every member's login credentials and logged-in devices are secure. Files uploaded can be downloaded by anyone with a login. Please exercise caution and refrain from sharing sensitive information that could harm you or others if it became public.
Reporting An Issue
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a Pixels team member or Moderator on Discord. They'll respond as promptly as they can.
We will respect confidentiality requests for the purpose of protecting victims of abuse. At our discretion, we may publicly name a person about whom we’ve received harassment complaints, or privately warn third parties about them. We will not name harassment victims without their affirmative consent.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Pixels team members and moderators reserve the right to enforce action at any point in time.
If a user engages in harassing behavior, the Pixels Team members or Moderators may take any action they deem appropriate, up to and including expulsion from the discord and identifying the participant publicly as someone about whom we've received complaints.
If any user or their farm land is found in violation of the community guidelines, their land will be made private, blocking any visitors from entering. The user will be given 48 hours to redesign or make the necessary changes to comply with community guidelines. If the user fails to make these changes, their land will be reset to one of the Pixels templates.
