Forum Rules and Guidelines These rules and guidelines apply to all posts, private messages, status updates and replies, usernames and signatures. When posting, please be relevant and remain constructive and polite. Administrators and Moderators reserve the right to amend these rules and any forum content at any time if they feel it does not adhere to the standards of the forum and the game. General Forum Rules Respect each other. Be polite and don’t flame or insult other members. Use the correct sub-forums. Buying and selling threads belong in the Marketplace section and off-topic discussions belong in the Chit-Chat section, etc. No threadjacking! Stay on topic. Do not derail a thread (i.e. correcting someone’s grammar, trolling, etc.) No empty posts or power-posting (posting for the sake of posting to increase your post count). If you agree to someone’s post, like their post instead of posting “+1,” “I agree,” “Me too,” etc. Bumping threads is prohibited. The only exception to this rule is the Marketplace section of the forum. You may only bump your threads once each day; violation of this will result in your thread’s locking. Do not spam, post links to malicious websites or repost closed, modified or deleted content. Linking to any site that violates any of the forum rules is also not allowed. Do not impersonate anyone, including those outside of the game, especially Staff Members. No witch hunts. Do not actively encourage the use of the Report tool. If you think someone has broken a rule, keep it to yourself and report it and we will review it. Do not attempt to circumvent forum rules (or censors), or assisting or encouraging others to do so. Do not make false reports or spam reports. Report a post only if it's in violation of the rules listed here. Content Rules No posting of personal information, whether it be your own or someone else’s, without consent. This includes but is not limited to: phone numbers, full names, physical addresses, IP addresses, emails, and social media sites. Posts and discussions regarding politics, race, religion, sex or any other topics that are generally deemed explicit, inappropriate or controversial are not allowed. No posting of anything that can be deemed derogatory, discriminatory, obscene or offensive. Do not discuss exploits publicly. Report them privately to a staff member. Posting copyrighted material without permission from the copyright owner is prohibited. Threats of violence or harassment are forbidden. Backseat Moderating Let the staff do their jobs. Backseat moderating is when people who are not moderators try to enforce the forum rules. If you see someone breaking the rules, simply ignore their post or use the Report tool. Please do not speak for the Staff in any way especially when it comes to answering questions pertaining to or disclosing any information only the Staff has access to. Do not assume or believe everything that you hear or read unless it has been confirmed by or comes directly from a Staff Member. Reporting Report rule-breakers using the Report button found under each post. Please do not quote posts that violate Forum Rules. Decisions made by the Administrators and Moderators are not open to public discussion. Please contact them privately to discuss any issues regarding said decisions. Failure to abide by the rules will result in warnings, bans or other corrective action being given to parties involved depending on the severity of the circumstance.
