What's the Anyland behavior etiquette?

Anyland is proud to have people from all walks of life and all colors of the rainbow. Respect is one of our building blocks. We strive for a peaceful environment for everyone.

If you use the context laser (top Vive controller button on the thumb side) on people or things, you'll find options such as friending or reporting. You can also lock people out of your area if you want to.

When interacting with others, please be respectful. For instance, cursing at them or otherwise showing hate against them, is against the etiquette. Impersonation to confuse, deceptive creations outside of voluntary challenges, bullying, strong rudeness in speech or drawings, trolling, spamming, picking of fights, personal attacks, spreading rumors about someone, overly aggressive behavior towards others, homophobia, and racism aren't wanted by most and are against the etiquette. You may not reserve area names for future use, or mass create new areas, as everyone should get a chance at the names. Please do not create copies of existing external artwork (unless you can be sure e.g. fair use or public domain rules cover it). Please do not publicize videos or screenshots of Anyland with the intention to embarass or ridicule the person being filmed (depending on context, you can also let others know you're recording... the more it's not a group situation, the more expectation one would have to privacy).

Often, location matters: what people may consider offensive in one area may be accepted, funny and terrific in another more distant location with another group. Try to apply common sense and find the group and location that's right for you and enjoy! Communication and flagging is the basis for how we all self-maintain.

Please read the terms below for more.

What are the terms of service?

We try to keep the terms text short :)

First of all, we take our responsibility very seriously, and want to provide a long-term sustainable environment for everyone who joined. If you join Anyland, you agree to all of these terms of service.

Anyland requires you to be at least 16 years of age, and in some countries older.

We try to have the world be stable & permanent and have backups and such... but can make no guarantees regarding lost data or availablility of the service. We may block users who we find abuse the service, and cancel, remove or block accounts, creations or areas if they go against the etiquette or terms.

We want the best for Anyland and its citizens, and to that end reserve the right to amend the world and its rules in any ways we think helps create the best place for all citizens.

By submitting content in Anyland you affirm that you have the necessary licenses, rights, trademarks etc. on that content and that you give Anyland the universe-wide, non-exclusive, royalty-free right to do anything with it, and to give all Anyzens the universe-wide, non-exclusive, royalty-free rights to access this content (community happiness is our top priority to which all other decisions follow). Otherwise you are not allowed to use trademarked properties (including in created area names) or copy work. (Non-terms sidenote: We personally wish the world would switch to movements like Creative Commons and vastly broaden Fair Use and remixing defense in everyday creative situations.) Please note we will process and investigate all notices of alleged infringements and take appropriate actions as part of the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA), notifications of claims and counter-notifications should be sent in this form. It is against the terms to embed, share, upload, create or communicate content which is against the law.

If you're not an adult or you don't know if someone else is an adult, don't ask for or provide personal information like address, email, web page, phone number and such. By logging in to Anyland you agree to all of the terms, which may change in the future. You also agree to keep to our etiquette. You agree not to create highly offensive things in the world meant to disturb others through shock and similar. You agree to keep the etiquette and forum etiquette in all your actions and content. If you are under the age of majority where you live (i.e. you are not legally an adult yet) you represent that your parent or legal guardian has also reviewed and agreed to these terms. You also agree to not share your Anyland account with other people, or let others join Anyland via your account (an account must be self-managed, and for communication with us, the associated email needs to be used). You agree not to have a real-world audio source (like music from a radio) constantly stream through the headset microphone. We are trying to focus on world health and happiness for all of us. We reserve the right to delete any account and creations at our discretion, and there are automatic blocks based on certain patterns. Automation, redistribution or wrapping of Anyland and its components, or interfacing with them outside of the ones provided, is against the terms. You agree not to import creations. Please note we may set limits to cap things (like how many areas one can create and so on). If you discover a security vulnerability or any type of bug that can be abused, it's against the terms to keep using the bug, but please just let us know about it via email, it's very much appreciated. It's against the terms to submit untrue or nonsensical flag reports.

[Please note: Our goal is to offer the Anyland service for as long as it's possible. It's our labor of love and we are very dedicated to it. What if the servers go down though, or we can't pay the costs of running anymore? What if anything else happens that makes it difficult for us to continue the service? We may then one day consider other additional ways to cover costs to ensure the stability for all of you, or even restrict (or worst case, stop) the service. We hope this won't ever happen, but wanted to put in this cautionary note in any case... we hope you understand!]

If you are ever locked and you don't know why, or there's another account-related issue, please feel free to contact us.

We will do our best to provide a great environment for all of you!

Medical notes

Please try not to sleep with your headset on as it can hurt your eyes, and keep to all other Vive security instructions. Be safe!

Photosensitive warning

A very small percentage of individuals may experience epileptic seizures when exposed to certain light patterns or flashing lights. Exposure to certain patterns or backgrounds on a computer screen, or while playing games, may induce an epileptic seizure in these individuals. Certain conditions may induce previously undetected epileptic symptoms even in persons who have no history of prior seizures or epilepsy.

If you, or anyone in your family, have an epileptic condition, consult your physician prior to using Anyland. If you experience any of the following symptoms while playing a video or game – dizziness, altered vision, eye or muscle twitches, loss of awareness, disorientation, any involuntary movement, or convulsions – immediately discontinue use and consult your physician before resuming.
