Community Guidelines

The rules what keep you from getting banned

Be Excellent To Each Other

VRChat is a place filled with creative and interesting people who love building things in virtual reality and having fun.

Our Moderators have been granted a lot of laissez-faire in order to try to keep it that way, so rule number one is to do whatever you can not to negatively impact the experience of other users.

Be 13 Or Older

For legal reasons we cannot allow children under the age of 13 to use our services.

Exercise Proper Mic Etiquette

If you’re going to be away from the computer for a while? Mute your microphone.

Try to keep your microphone broadcasting at reasonable levels - if you’re too close to the microphone or too far away from the microphone, you’re going to negatively impact the experience for people around you.

Language

Any profanity should be kept at a minimum, and should not be used when addressing others.

Hateful speech of any kind is prohibited. This includes but is not limited to hateful speech involving any of the following subjects:

Sexual Content

Overtly sexual content, including avatars, worlds, and YouTube video walls, are explicitly forbidden.

While this presents a significant gray area, moderator decisions on the matter are final.

Self-Promotion or Soliciting

VRChat public worlds are not a place to promote your business, nor are private rooms for which you do not have explicit permission to do so from the room creator.

If you wish to promote a product or service through VRChat in a public space, reach out to hello@vrchat.net for discussion on potential ways we could work together.

Politics & Religion

We understand that politics is intertwined with daily events. Political debates are not welcome in VRChat unless in a private space where all participants are aware and accepting of the discussion. As soon as any discussion becomes a hostile environment, we will take appropriate action.

VRChat public spaces are also not the place to spread religious beliefs and viewpoints.

Interference & Assault

Moving avatars against their will, or blocking avatars in a space in which they cannot move, is forbidden.

Illegal Activities

If there's a law, anywhere, against what you're doing in VRChat, don't do that thing, even if it's legal where you are.

This also pertains to any action or statement associated with drug activity or direct selling of drugs.

Distribution of Personal Information

Publishing private or identifying information about other community members is forbidden, even if they have already revealed that information.

Impersonating a VRChat Employee

Do not impersonate a VRChat employee, or spread misinformation about VRChat.

Petitions & Protests

All questions and concerns should be emailed to feedback@vrchat.net. Any effort to organize a petition or protest on official VRChat channels is forbidden. These include but are not limited to VRChat, the VRChat subreddit, and the VRChat Community Slack.

Trolling & Harassment

Do not repeatedly follow, message, or interact with other community members after being asked to stop.

Hacks, Malicious Programs, or Circumventing Account Suspension/Termination

Please do not use malicious programs, hack our client, or circumvent account suspension/termination.

Consequences

Disruptive accounts might be kicked from a room temporarily, banned from VRChat temporarily, or in some extreme cases, banned from VRChat permanently.

Dispute Resolution

If you feel that you have been blocked mistakenly, or you have mended your trollsome ways and wish to make a case for your reintroduction into polite society, send us an e-mail at hello@vrchat.net and we will take a closer look at your case.
