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.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

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 any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- 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.

          I just don't get why they can't give us a date, or at least a rough estimate.........

          Soon is to f*************** vague.

            Re: Arena

            Well... I can't say what their motive is truly however my best guess is so players can't stock up on fp and so the playing field is a little more even.

            The most likely reason to that is... They must have a very limited number of programmers who can program things on the server side. And can't give exact dates as the programmers can't guarantee when it will be done. They just can't just type in (this is how it works or should work) and the server will do it..

            Ex


            #include <windows.h> // include the Windows API

            // Application object which says hello and goodbye
            class Application
            {
            public:
            Application() // say hello when object is constructed
            {
            Say("Hello World!");
            };
            ~Application() // say goodbye when object is destroyed
            {
            Say("Goodbye World!");
            };
            void Say(char* Message)
            {
            // Use the Win32 function MessageBox to
            // display the message with
            // an OK button and an information icon
            MessageBox(NULL,Message,"Application Message", MB_OK |
            MB_ICONINFORMATION);
            };
            };

            // Create out global application object
            Application theApp;

            // WinMain function is the entry point for Win32 programs
            int APIENTRY WinMain(HINSTANCE hInstance,
            HINSTANCE hPrevInstance,
            LPSTR lpCmdLine,
            int nCmdShow)
            {
            return 0;
            }

            Is a simple code to get a computer to say hello world for win32

            All that must be done exactly right for it to work.. So you can see more complex stuff will take more time and much much more typing

              I understand the complexity of code writing, but that doesn't mean a rough estimate can't be given instead of "soon"

                Voodoo your my type of guy! i like people like you who actually understand the behind the scenes and not just focus on the end product. When i used to make games like these for web browsers i used to hate being rushed by players for me to implement things, like people forget first that this stuff isn't necessarily easy, and two that even when its done, it still has to be tested and debugged if necessary.

                        I post a list for PA to look at .. Everyone says "witch hunt! No proof!"....... 80% of the total players suspended were on my list.

                        I tell everyone Voodoo is a dev because he slipped and gave me too much information and he quickly glazed everyone over with some smooth talking........ Soooo once everyone finds out its true or if Sock somehow provides proof as he states he has "proof about PAs lies" on his website. Then you'll believe me?

                        Wish people would just trust me. I don't make anything up.

                        You will all see soon enough Im sure. The truth always comes out.

                          This code actually does a lot more. All it takes to say hello world in programming languages would be something like:

                          <?php
                          echo "Hello World";
                          ?>

                          In objective C you can do this by printing a NSString i think.

                          For a company that makes as much money as PA i would expect things to be going faster. They must be making a lot of profit.

                            I didn't really have time to cut out the garbage mostly did it to prove a point... And still even though pa is making money you still have to take into account how many programmers they have and of those programmers how man can actually code for pa servers.. At their current rate of progression I'd say they have 3 at most. Also keep in mind that any new content programming done by those server programmers also have to fix server sided bugs as well as other server issues and can't always devote 100% of their time at work to coding new content.

                            Also keep in mind that California law also requires a 30 minute lunch break for shifts over 5hrs. And 10minute break periods must be offered every 4hrs worked or major portion of 4hrs (which for that law major portion = 2 or more hours) so that too also hinders progress. Amongst other variables such as meetings, unexpected equipment failure resulting in work lossed etc etc..

                            I'd recommend getting "game dev story" by kairosoft while not every detail in game development is in the game and not in as much detail, you can still get a feel for what goes into it and all sorts of possible issues that can arise
