All Metamoki user profiles, character actions and content in or on the chat boxes and message boards are created by our users and not by Metamoki.

Do not create names that are nasty, insulting, sexually explicit, racist, disrespectful of religions, intended to promote illegal acts or otherwise inappropriate. We can see your messages, so keep it clean and friendly! Do not abuse the chat functions by spamming (posting the same message many times) or using them to make party boards - this can result in warnings or a frozen account, too!
