What is PartiPeeps all about?

Is it free?
The website is totally free for basic use for anyone! It was created for fun, and because we've met some great people through similar sites, we wanted to give something back to your guys! We have a range of extras that do cost money but all the features are free with sometimes limitations. Our philosphy is that anyone can use any part of the site for FREE. Only pay for the extras you want or need. Make sure you check out the referal/invite system. Here you can earn points to pay for upgrades or exchange for cash!!
I havent Got/Lost/Deleted my Activation email
You can try to log in and a new activation code will be sent. If you are having problems getting your activation email then send a email from your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org with your user name and we will activate for you manually.
Banning and Suspensions
In the event that we have to issue a ban we have a auto ban system. The first ban will be for 30 mins, then its 1 day, 1 week and then permanent. After 30 days it resets back a level, so if you have a day ban, then no more problems within a month the next ban would be a day again rather than a week.
This is to encourage good behaviour and reward it as well. We do relised that things can be said without thinking sometimes and people can get baited.
Where possible we try to help members and warn that repeats of certain behaviour could cause a ban befoere we do it. There is no point having a go Admins/Mods, they can only use the auto system. If you belive something is unfair or wrong then contact Webadmin or email admin at partipeeps.com.
When we have a permanent ban we will log/ban the IP and email address to stop fake accounts. Continued vioalations may result in further action under the abuse of the telecoms acts.
