BronyTales Mission


BronyTales strives to curate an environment that is safe for players of all ages while also maintaining a friendly and fun game experience.
To make this goal a reality, we are taking multiple steps towards transparency:

  • Rules and repercussions are clearly outlined with very little room for interpretation.
  • All staff actions against players will be logged and displayed on our website.
  • All tickets that are sent via the server and freshdesk will be displayed.
  • Accusations of illegal behavior or activity will be investigated.
  • All gameplay changes, no matter how small, will be mentioned in the changelog on the Discord Server.
  • All rule changes will be logged, and changes made will be shown clearly. An announcement will also be made so players can review the rule change.
  • Any changes that may affect player gameplay will be announced.
  • All staff actions against players and all ticket(in game and freshdesk) responses will be shown on a page on our website. (still under construction)
All major events involving players, regardless of how they affect the server, will be responded to.
Any allegations of illegal activity will be investigated to our fullest extent before action is taken.
All tickets will be subject to our servers rules. Any violations or privacy issues within the ticket will result in the ticket being modified for the purposes of public viewing. All tickets will display with Name, Ticket Section, Date, Status. Once reviewed, ticket content will also be visible so long as they do not violate user privacy.
Staff are to promote a safe, fun, and friendly environment for Users of the Network. Being a member of Staff does not entitle any user to any special treatment or compensation. Any Staff members that are unable or unwilling to fulfill the duties assigned by Administration are subject to having their Staff role removed at the digression of Administration Staff.
