Whirled Club has a set of Community Standards to which players must adhere. These standards are a basic summary of what is outlined in Whirled's Terms of Service. For the full legalese, read the Terms of Service. These Community Standards will continue to evolve in cooperation with the player and creator community.

Unacceptable Behavior

There are certain behaviors that are unacceptable and will lead to being banned from the service. They are as follows;

  • Intolerance: offensive or aggressive behavior towards individuals or groups based on their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, sex, disability, political or religious beliefs. Whirled is a place for radical inclusion and tolerance of others.
  • Harassment: there is no place in Whirled for deliberately harassing other players, either by being offensive or by 'stalking' them, doxing, sending repeated requests or chat messages, etc. Deliberately circumventing a block is considered harassment behavior.
  • Spamming: repeated text of any kind is unacceptable, including demands to 'Be my friend' or 'Play this game'.
  • Scamming: attempting to trick people into revealing their account information or personal information (i.e., phishing, collecting information for illegal purposes, etc.) is unacceptable.
  • Indecency: offensive language and uploading offensive content (see below) is not supported in Whirled. You must exercise good judgement about what the people with you find offensive, and if in doubt, err on the side of caution. Slurs of any kind are not accepted on Whirled Club.
  • Griefing: deliberately interfering with other players' Whirled experience, through technical or other methods.
  • Content theft: stealing or "ripping" the creations of others, either for your own personal use or for distribution on or off Whirled Club, without the permission of the original creator. We make an exception if the creator has been inactive for over a year and has not specified against uploading their work; however the creations must still be correctly attributed and not sold for bars. For more detail, see Whirled Club's content copying and derivation policy.
  • Ban evasion: creating a new account, or using an existing alternate account, to evade a ban or temporary suspension.
  • Exploits: attempting to exploit Whirled Club systems, features or bugs for any reason other than the intended use.
  • Breaking any U.S. law: "in real life" laws still apply on Whirled Club.

While these guidelines give an outline of unacceptable behavior on Whirled Club - as per the Terms of Service - the decision for what constitutes unacceptable behavior is ultimately up to the discretion of Whirled Club staff. With that being said, these Community Standards are subject to change, and we will inform you when we make changes.

Whirled.Club does not monitor or censor uploaded content

Players of Whirled Club should note that Whirled Club staff, as a matter of policy, do not proactively monitor or censor content uploaded to the service, however automated systems are in place that may flag certain content for manual moderation.
