WHAT IS USER CONTENT?
“User Content” means any content created by the User, based on the content of the Game or affecting the Game Client, such as (i) text, (ii) software, (iii) artwork, (iv) banner, and (v) work resulting from modifications made to screenshots or videos taken from the Game.
That's a bit dry, but to give an example, it includes things like fanart, fanfiction, home-made plushies, cosplay outfits, and all kinds of other cool things. Whatever our creative players come up with, pretty much.
WHAT ARE THE RULES?
- User Content may not be used for commercial purposes.
- User Content may not infringe on anyone else's content.
- User Content may not be offensive.
- User Content may not aim to harass someone else.
- User Content may not imply any relationship to Kakao (or our partners).
- User Content may not be harmful to Kakao (or our partners).
That may seem like a long list, but if you're creating something because you love the game, love making things, and want to share that love with other gamers, you probably won't have any issues with it.
