Be Generally Polite And Respectful
Most of our rules at PokerShibes are common-sense and fall under the heading of "Hey, maybe if everyone's nice to each other, it's more fun to play poker." This is a reaction to the toxic nature of many other sites with completely-unrestricted chat.
Chat Behavior
Chat is a privilege, not a right. At PokerShibes, we're extremely committed to ensuring a positive environment across our chat. As such, insulting, denigrating, or generally being a jerk to other users is not permitted, at the sole discretion of the Administrators and Chat Support Staff. Depending on the severity of the offense, punishment can range from explaining the rules to a temporary chat ban to a permanent chat or site ban in extreme cases. Evading the chat filter with clever spacing, spelling, or other tricks is also specifically prohibited and can result in discipline. We understand that poker can be a stressful game, but please don't take your frustrations out on other players.
Multiple Accounts
You may only have one active account with PokerShibes at any time. Multi-accounting, colluding, creating new accounts for the purposes of evading discipline, and other similar things as determined at the sole discretion of Administrators can result in punishment ranging from account bans to global site bans and seizure of illicitly obtained funds.
Account Naming Conventions
Names that impersonate other players, administrators, or staff or seem to be created for the purposes of deception will be closed at the sole discretion of the Administrators. Any profanity-filtered language is specifically disallowed in account names.
Age Restrictions
Players under the age of 18, or the age of majority in their jurisdiction, are unable to play on PokerShibes.
Email Addresses and Password Resets
For account security purposes, all password resets must demonstrate control of the email address associated with the account. If you're prone to forgetting your password, please provide a real email address that you have consistent access to.
All rules and regulations can be changed at any time by the Administration. In the event that no rule specifically applies to a situation that arises, the Administration will use their best judgement in keeping with the spirit of the site. Funds may be seized and redistributed to players if the Administration has found evidence of foul play of any sort.
Site Language
All site announcements, official site communications, and site support will take place in English. Speaking in other languages at the tables is allowed, but any collusion or soft-play will not be tolerated.
Fair Play
Any play or mechanism that attempts to gain an illicit advantage over other players is strictly prohibited. This includes (but is not limited to) collusion, multiaccounting, soft-play, botting, and chip dumping. We take all accusations of unfair play extremely seriously and investigate in detail. If you suspect that something unfair has occurred, please email admin@shibes.poker with as much information as possible, including the table name, approximate time, and what type of unfair play you suspect.
