Guilded was founded with one humble goal — to connect gaming communities. In pursuit of this goal, we've developed a host of features for your community to chat, organize, share content, recruit, and compete with one another.
In order to provide a safe and fair environment for our users, some content and activity is not permitted on our services. Content and activity that is not tolerated broadly fall into four categories: 1. Violence and harassment, 2. Objectionable content, 3. Criminal behavior, and 4. Hacking and cheating. In addition, all publicly visible content, including but not limited to profile pictures, banners, team logos, profile posts, and public channel content, must be suitable for ages 16 and up.
