Site rules

Last modification date: December 1, 2018.

hexy.games aims at being a friendly community of hexagonal games' players. As a result, the users are asked to behave accordingly while playing and interacting with others. There should be no abusive language, personal attacks, threats, or any other unkind behavior. Any examples of such activities will not be tolerated and, once recognised, will result in an account being deleted.

The users should not receive any outside assistance (neither from another player, nor from computer engines) to evaluate the position in their ongoing games except for situations when their opponent has agreed on such an assistance. In that case, the game where any player is being helped should not be rated.

The user should have only one hexy.games account. Every account should be managed and used by only one person.
