    The House of Friends Rules                                                                                                 

    Back 

    You are now one of us and this is your house. And just like in any house, there are some rules to be followed in order for us to all live happily together.

    Have a look around or use the search feature for information on any topic related to the game. Feel free to create an account, which will allow you to join in on the community discussions.

    Feel free to introduce yourself to the community if you haven’t yet.

    We encourage open and friendly discussions of topics here in Candy Crush Friends Saga. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the community remains a friendly and fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups. In case of any doubt or question, do not hesitate to contact one of the members of our team. 

    Please read the following guidelines before posting in the forums - Please note that the Forums are in English only.


    - Be Kind

    After all, we're all friends of Candy Friends here, so treat others the way you would like to be treated. We will not allow any behaviour that is disrespectful or offensive to other members of this community or towards the King staff. 

    Discrimination and hate speech are the quickest way for you to get banned. Discriminatory posts about sex, gender, race, creed, sexuality and religious beliefs will not be tolerated. No trolling! Baiting, insulting and posting controversial content, with the aim of provoking a response, is especially not tolerated. Any content deemed as trolling will also be deleted.


    - Keep it on topic

    Make sure that you post in the right community section. Spam, pointless and meaningless content ruins discussions and we have a zero-tolerance policy for all automated messages, advertisements and threads that contain links to websites that are not related to the game. These will be deleted and repeated behaviour will result in a ban. Irrelevant responses to posts will also be deleted - If you don’t have something meaningful to add to the discussion, don’t reply.

    Remember:

    - Looking for information about the game or how to solve a technical issue? Check our FAQ, the answer is certainly there!
    - Still need help? Check if other players have a solution for you or let us know in the Support section.
    - You want to chat about Tiffi's new outfits or discuss strategy, express yourself in the Discussions tab!
    - You have an idea on how to make the game even sweeter than ever, let us know in the Ideas area.


    - Keep it clean

    If it isn’t legal, take it elsewhere. Discussion of illegal activities which include but are not limited to: narcotics, illegal sexual content, circumvention of copy protection and piracy are strictly off-limits and will result in a ban from the site. 

    In doubt, all terms and conditions can be found here.


    - Search before posting

    You most probably will find your topic by using the search feature. Most of the topics in the forums already have lots of information and you’ll receive more feedback if you add your comment or question there instead of creating a new thread.


    - Violation of the rules and bans

    The Community Team will determine the severity of the infractions and act accordingly. All cases will be handled on an individual basis and sanctions can vary. In exceptional cases, unbans can happen.


    The rules also includes:

    . Duplicate player accounts are prohibited in the community to avoid unfair points and badges being earned with multiple accounts. 
    . No selling stuff or redirecting our players to other sites
    . Keep your personal information out of any public post.

    . Don't incite complaints, campaign or lobby.

    . Don’t question moderator actions publicly. What we say goes.
    . Discussions of politics and religion are not allowed.
    . Don’t get around our filters, that’s swearwords and other blocked terms.
    . Don’t air interpersonal disputes
    . Only English is allowed. Désolée.



    Thanks for reading through the rules and I wish you lots of fun in the community.

    Earning Stars and Badges (and becoming a King Legend  B) )                                          

    Back 


    What are levels?

    Levels are your progression path inside the Community. The more comments you make and the bigger your contribution is, the higher you will rank. Go all the way up to becoming a Legend in the Community! (Although it seems like there are three other secret levels afterwards...)

    What are points?

    Points are scores you obtain from your engagement in the Community. The more points you have, the higher you can be in the ranks and the more you can access exclusive rewards.

    But... What are points for?

    Points are scores you obtain from your engagement in the Community. The more points you have, the higher you can be in the ranks. And the higher you are in the ranks the more perks and exclusive features that you will unlock! 

    On top of that, we have leaderboards. On the Activity Section (and on every game's home page) you can see the top leaders of the week along with the all-time leaders. And what's even more exciting, we have prizesHERE is a thread that explains the different prizes you get as you reach certain milestones (5.000 points, 10.000 points, 25.000 points and 50.000 points). But remember: you have to comment on that thread once you reach those milestones so that we can give you the amazing rewards that come with it!


    If you want to make it to the top, you really need to check our next point!

    Who will be our first Ultimate Legend?! Now go and enjoy your time here and remember, the more helpful and informative your posts, the more stars you will have B)


    Happy posting!



    - What are the Badges and how to earn them?


    Each badge is like a sweet reward for achieving an action. Complete all the steps to collect all the badges! 
    You also gain points by earning them, which will help you climb to the top of the leaderboard. 



    One colour for each level - Green for level 1, Yellow for level 2, then Orange for level 3, Pink for level 4 and Silver is reserved for the real experts!

     


    You can see the full list of Badges here

    Go to your profile to see how many you've collected!
