3 pointsArtwork by pridark // Artwork edited by Rikifive Hey, did you know, that you can disable your messenger? If for personal reasons you'd like to avoid receiving messages, we're offering a special service, where we can come to your property and take your mailbox away from you, quite literally! If you'll decide to get rid of it, we'll be notifying others, that you cannot receive any messages if they'd be trying to contact you. Oh and don't worry! We will return your mailbox whenever you'd like to have it back, just say a word and it will be there! I promise! Disabling Messenger You can disable your messenger at the bottom of the inbox. Note, that disabling messenger WILL NOT delete the conversations you have. Everything will still be there if you decide to enable it back. You can disable/enable it whenever you want without losing anything, except the new messages, that will be blocked while having it deactivated. You won't receive any notifications, that someone tried to send you a message while you had the messenger deactivated. Disabling messenger removes it from your userbar: - and whenever someone will try to send you a message, they'll receive an error telling, that you cannot receive any messages at the moment: Note, that you cannot compose, nor view messages while it is deactivated. Enabling Messenger You can enable your messenger back at any time. While the messenger is disabled, a new option, "Messages", is added to your account menu. This option will ask if you want to enable it back: After selecting [ OK ], it will take you to your messenger just like it was before disabling it. No hard feelings, if you decide to get rid of your mailbox, we won't be seeing each other as often afterwards, but I hope we'll still be friends!
1 pointThe badges beneath a user's avatar usually denote what their posting rank is.

1 pointAre there any exceptions to the no advertising rule? Absolutely. While MLPF does not permit advertising without Admin Approval as a general rule, there are some common sense exceptions for users. All Users We will allow you to place your personal website, social media, discord server, contact details, and media sharing account link in your signature and the appropriate field(s) in your profile, providing the content on the site does not link to content considered inappropriate for MLPF. Octavia's Hall Directing people to off-site art content to promote your art is allowable, provided you are sharing your art in your posts too. Suggesting people check out your videos, DA page, collaborative projects, etc ia okay. Linking directly to a store front, or requests for financial support of any kind are not allowed without Admin approval. Commission Shops It is acceptable to encourage users to commission you for art if you are an approved Commission Artist on MLPF. However, don't be spammy or pushy about it. A little reminder in a status update that you have some slots available, or a comment to those seeking art is something that we encourage. Competing Interests If your project is a Pony Forum, Minecraft Server, or a platform similar to the ones we have created for our community, we reserve the right to disallow advertising.
