|Questions & Answers|
This thread is here for you to ask any questions you may have about the forums or the game!
Feel free to post answers to questions that other users may have.
Can I be a moderator?
Applications are currently not open at the moment. However there will be an announcement when we are taking applications, so check back periodically!
I've found a hacker! How can I report them?
You can report hackers using the report system. Click on the person's name in the chat box, or in the playerlist, and select report. You can also report people using the report command: /report username. Alternatively, you can contact an online Moderator directly. You can find a list of online Mods by doing /mod
When do my firsts/saves/cheese/stats start to count?
Firsts - 10 mice plus the shaman
Rounds - 2 mice
Saves - 3
Cheese - 2
Note: Every mouse needs to be on a different IP! Logging in 10 alts will not get you any firsts.
What are modules?
Modules are user created minigames that are playable in certain rooms beginning with #. You can find some of them in the "Game Mode" section of the ingame menu. These modules are created using lua, which you can find out more about in the Modules Subforum

You can play Transformice in fullscreen by pressing the fullscreen button. You can also download a standalone client so you do not have to play in your browser, more info Here
I've been kicked by a room, what should I do?
There is no such thing as voteban anymore; instead you get kicked from that room and you're unable to rejoin it for an hour. Simply join another room.
A player is annoying me. What should I do?
You can mute a player by using the command /ignore <username>. You will no longer receive whispers nor chat messages from them until you re-login. If you feel they are being extremely abusive please contact a moderator.

How many cheese do I need for title X?
A list of titles and the requirements for unlocking them can be found here.
Can you create a community for my country?
Communities are created if there are enough users from that country playing Transformice. The admins have access to very precise stats, so if there is a need for a community for your country, it will be created!
What are tribes?
Tribes are small groups of friends. They have a private chat and other interesting features such as ranking and a tribe house! Head over to the Tribes section to find out more information about Tribes.
How do I join a tribe?
If you want to join an already existing tribe, you must be recruited by someone who has recruiting powers in the tribe. You can either go to that specific tribes thread and read their requirements and who to talk to or you can post in this thread.
How do I purchase fraises?
Depending on your country, there are different methods available to purchase fraises. You can access these purchase options from the "Buy Fraises" button in the shop. Wherever you are from, follow the instructions on your chosen purchase option very carefully.
Why can't I purchase by SMS?
The payment provider Zong was causing many issues, so is no longer available for use. Only when a suitable payment provider for your country is found, will mobile payments be available.
How can I get a + in my username?
This is no longer possible. Accounts with a + at the beginning of their username are players previously from another game, extinction.fr. The accounts were merged with Transformice, and to avoid any name conflicts they had a + put in front of them.
How do I post a picture I have on the forums?
This thread explains in good detail how to posts pictures here on the forums.

I think it's because some of the yellow anchors overlap more than two objects. That usually causes builds to glitch and spaz out.
Thanks for the info. Where is the best place to post a thread asking for totem suggetions which represent pirate boats? lol
