BABV-Guide Guide Forums is directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older. For those younger than 13, although
we assume that they have asked for guidance and assistance from their
parents or guardian during registration, for their own safety, they
have no access to the ChatBox and the Private Message (PM) system.

If you are the parent or guardian of the child younger than 13 years old,
we advice you to read the Privacy Policy located at the bottom of this
page. If you have further questions, feel free to contact the site

Policies and Guidelines

babv-guide.niceboards.org or BABV Guide is a fan-based community for
Build-A-Bearville.com™️. Build-A-Bearville.com™️ (BABV) is an online game
geared toward young children, teenagers and adults who are loyal
patrons of Build-A-Bear Workshop®️. The majority of our members are
young, or young at heart, and therefore, everything posted on this site
must stay safe and kid-friendly. Foul language, pictures, links, and
derogatory references including, but not limited to, race, religion,
gender, or disability will not be tolerated. Any post containing
inappropriate material will be deleted and the author of such post will
be given a warning. Repeated violations of any rules or instructions
from BGF Moderators and/or Administrators (“Officers”) will result in a
suspension and/or expulsion from the site.

BABV-Guide Officers reserve the right to edit, move, or delete any post without warning or reason.
Posts that contain real names (whether yours or somebody else’s), or
slander/criticize members, will be edited and/or deleted. Posts that
are posted in the wrong forum topic will be moved to the proper area or
deleted without warning. Posts that contain inflammatory remarks,
reference to violent acts, or that contain violations of the policies
of BABV-Guide contained in the Rules and Regulations, will be deleted. Posts referencing any films/tv programs that are not suitable for General
Viewing are not permitted. Posts that lack content and/or considered
spam will be deleted. If you repeatedly start posts in an inappropriate
section, spam the forums, or post improper content, then your posting
privileges will be suspended and your account may be expelled.

Anyone with access to a computer and the internet may visit these forums. As
such, any information posted here is visible to anyone anywhere at any
time. Do not under any circumstances post any personal information.

Personal Information: Please
do not UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES post, or ask for, personal information
in this site. Personal information includes, but is not limited to,
full names, cities, school names, friend’s names/information,
passwords, ages, account information, real life photos of yourself,
real life videos of yourself and/or friends, or any information that
could assist another person in locating you or stealing your identity.
This includes, but is not limited to, passing this information to
another through BABV-Guide Private Message (PM) system and anywhere within member profiles. If anyone asks you for personal information, please
let an officer know right away. This includes, but is not limited to,
giving out email addresses, IM screen names, phone numbers, social
networking sites, etc.

Posting Rules

All of the Policies and Guidelines cover all areas of BABV-Guide Forums, whether it be the forums and the member profiles.

Advertising Personal Sites/Forums:
Please do not advertise external sites or forums within babv-guide.niceboards.org, without the site owner's permission. We do not have a problem with
other sites; however, we cannot monitor the activities of other sites.
Any link to any external site will be deleted unless it has been
previously approved by the site owner.

The exception to this rule are Build-A-Bear Workshop®️ affiliated websites, BABV-Guide affiliated
websites, official weblinkers or approved video hosting sites. If you
are unsure if a site is suitable, then contact an officer for approval.

Inappropriate Content/Material:
Posts or Member profiles that contain, or make reference to, race,
ethnic origin, religious belief, or orientational preference are not
appropriate for this site. Also, posts containing foul language, or
making reference to nudity, violence, or drug and alcohol use (or any
other illegal substance), are not allowed within BABV-Guide. Officers will
edit or delete any item not adhering to this rule immediately, and will
take appropriate action against the member, according to the severity
of the offense.

This is when a user intentionally disrupts a thread by posting inaccurate, inflammatory, or
hateful comments. This is usually done with the desire to get a heated
reaction from other posters. Keep in mind that this is a
family-oriented and kid-friendly site, and our forums are not meant for
instigating arguments. Whereas members may have a difference in
opinion, be sure to keep fighting to a minimum.

Spamming can be considered multiple things; but overall, spam is any
post that does not follow or contribute to the subject matter of the
original topic. We do not tolerate spamming on BABV-Guide.

Signatures may be no larger than 250 pixels high by 500 pixels wide.
This rule is in place to show consideration to others while using the
forums. If your signature exceeds 250 pixels in height, an officer will
send you a private message to ask you to resize your image. If you see
this reminder, decrease your signature size immediately.

Impersonation of Other Members:
Creating accounts that use similar, or existing, member names in order
to slander existing members, or cause misconceptions towards another
member, is not allowed. This behavior will quickly lead to being
suspended from BABV-Guide.

Impersonation of Special Bearville Friends:
Creating accounts under the names of MaxineCEB, ChloeRocks,
CyBearGuides, SheaMegale and posing as these special characters will
quickly lead to being suspended from BABV-Guide.

Sharing and Multiple Accounts:
Members are only allowed to have one account. If you have more than one
account, your additional accounts will be suspended indefinitely.
Multiple members of a single household are encouraged to each have
their own account. That way you may each state your own opinion freely.
Do not let others on your account ever. If they do something that is
against the rules, your account could be suspended.

The Officers:

The officers check all content for its compliance with the Policies and
Guidelines and dispense disciplinary action at their sole discretion
but always with the approval and consent of the site owner. If you feel
your punishment is harsh, you may appeal to the officer who gave you
the warning, or contact the site owner. Public appeals on the forums
are not tolerated and may result in further disciplinary action.

If you see a post of a questionable nature, please notify an officer by
clicking on the “Report” button included in each post. Please include a
brief explanation of why you believe the item needs attention. Please
do NOT take matters into your own hands by replying to the message, or
PMing the author to scold them yourself. Remember - we want a safe and
happy environment for all of our members and guests.

Rules regarding codes

1. Posting of purchased item codes is not allowed. A purchased item code
comes from items purchased in Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and other
retail stores. While the codes given MAY be universal or generic, we do
not post those codes here as a respect to those who bought those items
for the code.

2. Please do not share receipt codes, Bearville
Outfitter codes, credits, BearBills Game Card codes, SFS Codes, and
Animal ID's and Keycodes.

We do not tolerate scamming here on BABV-Guide. Do not share your account information in
exchange for codes, credits, and/or bearbills. Please keep your BABV-Guide
password and BABV password safe! We do not give out BABV codes, credits
and items, except for the following:
- free club tee
- contest prizes
- auction items

*We have a special section for trading - the BearXchange. All trades are monitored by officers and are all valid and safe.

Officers do not ask for your account information, codes and items from members.
Beware of impersonators! If someone asks for your password or any
information related to your account here and Build-A-Bearville, notify
an officer right away!


A member is generally given reminders and/or warnings depending on the type of offense.

There are three types of offenses:

Light Offense - These are tolerable mistakes commonly committed by
first-time forum users. We only give reminders for light offense.

2. Minor Offense - These offenses merit a strong warning.

a. First three offenses of the same nature – 3 Warnings
b. Fourth Offense of the same nature – Temporary Account Lock
c. Fifth Offense of the same nature– Permanent Account Lock

3. Major Offense - These are types of offenses that will lead to Immediate Permanent Account Lock

BABV-Guide Forums reserves the right to add, delete, or modify its Policies and
Guidelines at any time, and your registration at this site signifies
your willingness to these changes without notification.
