Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Very nice world to hang out but sadly they ban randomly the accounts and for a simple misunderstanding they give you a ban without let you defend yourself and treating you like an I'd**ot sending the same message even if you write them multiple times to ask clairment.they don't play clear with the users.

Cyber Sex

This is not a game for children. It is for adults that like to make objects, socialize or do the cyber nasty. Swearing is about normal for this type of game. There are a lot of perverts online so again no children! I got bored with it. The children pestering for the cyber nasty and the police pretending to be children. They got my IP address somehow. There is better out there on the net.

Too much sex
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
