About moderation

 

Moderators keep order in the chat. Moderators are selected from all players. Their main goal is to monitor compliance with the chat rules as far as possible. It means moderator is not obliged to be in chat at the certain time or continuously. Helping players is a personal initiative of the moderator. The moderator has the right to refuse to help the player without explanation. With a large number of questions, please be prepared that your question may be answered with a delay. Moderators can pass your problem or proposal to the administration of the project but they are not obliged to. To report in-game errors or problems with payments, you should contact Support via the "Report a bug" button (for the social version of the game) or by pressing "?" button (for the mobile version of the game). For suggestions and other questions please write to the official pages og the project in social networks.
