The Rules

Postby sabinati » Wed Dec 15, 2010 12:29 am

The official forum language is English. Please post in English. Other languages are allowed in the Dwarves and Thieves subforum, so that people can recruit others that speak their desired language.

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.

5. Spam
  • 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!
  • Stop requesting character wipes or map resets.
  • Don't go advertise your trades in every Apples for Oranges topic, or advertise your village in every Dwarves & Thieves topic.
  • 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.

6. Sass
  • 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 may 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.

Signatures should not be taller than four-five lines of text. If you have a signature larger than this, or one that is otherwise disruptive to reading a thread, you will be asked to change it.

Garbage posts are getting out of hand. Stop complaining about the new LP system.

Posted images must be suitable for mixed crowds.

If you MUST post something you wouldn't show your grandmother, put up a link with an appropriate warning. (Doing this is not a free pass to post anything.)

or troll/stir up drama on the forums with an alt.


Just as an addition since I saw this hasn't been explicitely pointed out yet: Do not support your own arguments in a debate with alts or advertise your own products with an alt. When in doubt rather do not use an alt account at all. For pure in game purposes like starting over new or similar things the mods usually don't care though.

to be precise: signatures should be max 70px high or less.

Reminder, low-content shitposting like "UMAD?" is against the rules.
