@Zavyt, we understand real life and other interests can and will take precedence. There's no one "right" way to play Flight Rising. Players can play as casually or hard as they want, and feeling like you want or need to take a break is 100% valid.

If you choose to take a break, your lair and your dragons will remain as-is. We don't close or delete accounts for inactivity, nor do we remove items, dragons, or currency from an inactive account. When you return, your lair and dragons will be as you left them.

do accounts get locked after 7 years of no use?

Users can also ask for their accounts to be locked if they're going to abandon them.
edit: spelling

Hello everyone, I hope you had a good weekend!

On locked accounts, voluntary/requested closures are not an option and not performed. Support only locks (or closes) an account when our Terms of Use or Rules & Policies have been violated. These occur after a series of warnings and suspensions. If the offense is egregious, an account may be closed immediately without warning.

As always, if you have an feedback or suggestions about our rules, policies, etc, we don't allow them on the forums. Please send them directly to the team through Contact Us. Thank you!

In the coming weeks, we will be rolling out some upgrades to our gem purchase system. Please see this post for more information.
Upcoming Gem Purchase Changes
Jul 23, 2020, 16:59:22
Hey everyone! We want to provide you with some notice about an upcoming change to how gems are purchased on Flight Rising, and how we'll be implementing those changes.

In the coming weeks, we will be implementing some upgrades to our gem purchase system:
  • We are expanding the ways you can purchase gems. It will soon be possible to purchase gems with most major credit cards in addition to using Paypal.
  • Should one or both of our payment methods go down due to technical issues, the Gem Purchase page will properly notify you and prohibit gem sales from that method.

BuyGemsNew.png

Due to the sensitive financial nature of this particular set of changes, we are opting to roll out the new payment methods functionality very slowly. At first, only a handful of player accounts will be able to see and use the new system so that we can confirm everything is working normally. Over time, we will slowly expand the pool of accounts that can use the system until it has been implemented site-wide. Starting with a small group first will allow us to fix any issues or provide any needed support (though hopefully not!) to affected players.

At the moment, we don't anticipate any problems and have been doing extensive testing over the last few months to ensure that the roll-out is as smooth as possible.

Thanks!

We've updated our previous Cross-Site Trading policy to the new Trading: FR Trades & Cross-Site Trades. For more information, please see our post here.
[Update] Rules & Policies
Jul 13, 2020, 18:01:18
We've made some changes to our Cross-Site Trading Policy. We now have one single article dedicated to both Flight Rising trades and cross-site trades called Trading: FR Trades & Cross-Site Trades.

This update replaces the previous Cross-Site Trading Policy. It addresses several types of trades or questions that have come up since the last time this policy was updated. Sections marked with (July 13, 2020) are either new to the policy or additional clarification.

We encourage our community to read the updated trading policy in full at your earliest convenience. When you do, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the definitions at the start of the article. We've also included this list below:
For the purpose of this policy, “trading” is defined as: When a player exchanges Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency with another player for Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency.

“Cross-site trading” is defined as: When a player who plays Flight Rising and another virtual pet game wants to exchange Flight Rising items, dragons, or currency with another player for the other virtual pet game’s virtual items. Cross-site trading is done at the player's own risk.

“Supported” is defined as: In the event something goes wrong with the trade, Flight Rising Support will be able to provide assistance.

“Unsupported” is defined as: In the event something goes wrong with the trade, Flight Rising Support will not be able to provide assistance.


Thank you for reading and happy trading!

New Contact Us Categories
Jul 13, 2020, 10:40:15
We've added a new dropdown category to our Contact Us page: Scam or Bad Faith Trade.

If you believe the person you've traded with is engaging in a bad-faith trade, or scammed you, use this category. While we don't support cross-site trading, we also do not tolerate players exploiting this policy for their own gain. Please report bad faith or scam trades to us regardless of trade type.
When you submit your report please make sure your request meets the following criteria:
  1. You're using the email address registered to your Flight Rising account.
  2. Your report has a link to the reported player's profile page.
  3. Your report has a link or links to any related Crossroads or private message.
  4. Your report details the trade agreement.

NOTE

If your trade (support or unsupported) was negotiated anywhere other than the Flight Rising website, please be advised that we do not accept screenshots as evidence. Screenshots can be easily altered and our Support team is not able to independently verify what was or wasn't said on a third-party platform.

When submitting a report to our Support team it's critical to choose the correct category. Tickets are triaged based on issue and severity. When reports are submitted to categories like Ask the Team, Other, Gameplay Issue, etc they can be missed.
