1. Read Before Posting
- Read the stickies, read the wiki, read the titles of threads in the first page or two of the subforum to see if there is already an answer to your question, or if your idea has already been suggested
- Don't forget about the search function! Threads that ask a question that has been answered in the wiki or another recent thread, or threads with commonly suggested ideas like "add bridges" will be moderated.
2. Title Your Threads Properly
- Condense the main idea of your post into one phrase or sentence and use that for the title. Poorly named threads will be moderated.
3. Server Issues
- All posts regarding server issues (such as lag or downtime) should be posted in this thread.
4. Inappropriate Content
- No excessive swearing, posting malicious links or disturbing images. That includes NSFW images.
- Don't be a blatantly stupid/unfunny troll, derail otherwise interesting threads with your trolling, or troll/stir up drama on the forums with an alt.
- Don't accuse others of being trolls when they are simply disagreeing with you.
- No hotlinking allowed - use a proper image host.
- Hate speech is considered trolling.
- Please refrain from offtopic chatting in important threads like the server status thread.
- Put some effort into your posting! We would like to see some actual discussion not empty "+1" posts like this or much worse like that
- The forum is not your blog! Threads not even remotely related to the game may be moderated!
- Don't go advertise your trades in every Apples for Oranges topic, or advertise your village in every Dwarves & Thieves topic.
- Stop requesting character wipes or map resets. They will only ever be introduced alongside major developments and there are no signs of those developments happening anytime soon. You have no say in the matter.
- Please avoid making grab bag threads with multiple unrelated suggestions. Give each idea its own thread so posters can discuss its merits, so that ideas aren't overshadowed by more popular ideas, and so that they might be found later using the search tool.
- Any concerns regarding a moderated post or thread should be taken to the moderation discussion. Do not derail threads with posts discussing moderator actions.
- Do not abuse the report function.
If you feel a post breaks one of these rules, please use the Report button instead of replying to it in the thread.
Warnings will be issued if your thread is renamed, merged or moved to hel. Repeat offenders will be banned for 1-7 days at the moderator's discretion. Accounts used for ban evasion will be subject to permabans if discovered.
