Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.â€‌
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flameâ€‌, “troll.â€‌ or “hazeâ€‌.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)

- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create �sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

  • Thoughts on Forum Censorship

    Please don't use names or say anyone's title/role here on the forums. This will lead to thread being closed.

    What do you all think? IN GENERAL, regarding all forums anywhere on the web, do you agree with censorship by the people controlling the forum?

    Re: Thoughts on Forum Censorship

    Yes I do, very. For example, year or two ago we had someone named Theroux/Subrux who, at every chance possible, posted insulting derogative comments that were totally off-topic and trolled so many of us who were here to discuss and debate topics and he would throw out totally inaccurate info to those looking for it. Then, when you would try to give that said person the right info he would insult and troll you to the point that many of us wouldn't even come here or try to help others because we didn't want to put up with people such as him who was banned, came back under a diff name, and totally keep the forums a mess of arguments and insults that people like him was why the devs and admin. wouldn't talk to us on here and people who we would value their comments wouldn't even bother because of the rants by those who are now banned from here. Since Chelsea has been here along with Tank and others, they have cleaned this place up and it's 5 times better now than before when they wasn't taking their valuable time to make sure this forum was a place to post and debate maturely and not like a bunch of idiots and 10 yr old kids. Just my opinion though, it's way better here now in the forums than years past and I give that credit to Chelsea, the admins, and the gurus who take time out their day to make our day better while coming here to read/post/debate.

        Re: Thoughts on Forum Censorship

        All,
        Do not start threads to argue on Mods/Admin functions on forums. This leads to trolling and typical flaming and end up with infractions issued since people will step over the line. If you have concerns on this topic then send it to support or PM UWE_Tank.

        Further disregard of this notice leads to actions taken against the OP.


        * There are certain people ( not banned ) on this forums who under the guise of being helpful only seek drama and some that just want the forum to be hostile and some to troll others for lack of reason that defies logic. I understand folks want to be free but previous forum history has shown that without policing of TOS then we would have no Devs or Admins on forums. Newer players are not aware of what lead to TOS been enforced further than it was a year plus ago but TRUST ME when I say that a clean forum benefits all. If you have issues post them in appropriate section of forums. If you have questions then ask in correct sections. Everyone who posts has an idea of right from wrong but some love chaos.

        My role on forums is to deal with TROLLS and DISRUPTIVE INFLUENCES while maintaining the peace as best I can regardless of abuse or hate I may get ( 2 years and still here ) so long as Devs/Admin and respectable folks have a place to come to post and Interact. I and other GG do this on our OWN time which we don't always need appreciation for because at the end of the day We love the game regardless of the negative aspects to forum or in game I/We all deal with.


        Once again, any complaints of GG or Admin functions on forum can be sent to support or UWE_Tank.

        RESPECT the forums. RESPECT your peers. To those that feel above forum or TOS? They will have to accept the consequence of their action if caught ( GGs have real lives ( typing this on my phone while in a conference for my REAL LIFE job ) and PA are online weekdays so we cant catch everything which is why reporting helps ).

        Thanks.
