Forum Rules

CHANGES
  • Items changed, or highlighted for future attention, on 20 July 2013 are highlighted in yellow.
Global Rules
  • Forum moderators may or may not be Tripwire Interactive staff members, but either way, please respect them, as they are the authority of the forums. Speaking to them with intentional spite will not be tolerated and may result in the loss of your forum privileges.
  • Any decisions made by any member of staff or moderator are final and not subject to discussion. Doing so may result in a ban from the site. The owners of Tripwire Interactive Forums reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread for any reason, as well as to remove access to the forums for any individuals with or without warning for breaches of the rules.
  • If you have a complaint regarding another user, PM the appropriate moderators, or if you have an administrative issue, [RO]schneidzekk.
General Behaviour
  • Use the search function before posting. Chances are your question has already been answered.
  • Use a title that describes the content of your post. Don't use all caps or special characters to draw attention either in the title or the body of the post.
  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.
  • Flaming - We do not tolerate abusive, malicious, personal attacks. You will be banned if you persist in this behavior.
  • Trolls - Anyone deliberately antagonizing other forum users by posting 'flame bait' type messages is not welcome. You will be banned (possibly without warning depending on the severity of the issue) if you persist in this behavior.
  • Personal insults (directed at anyone) will result in a ban. If the behavior is not corrected, it will be made more permanent.
  • Constructive criticism is welcome. However keep in mind we (and other forums goers) may not agree with you. If you can't keep the conversation civil, you will be removed from the forums.
  • The use of hyperbole, one liners, and images as part of a forum debate is likely to get you infracted. You have many ways to participate and be a constructive part of this community, even when you disagree.
  • To make the highlighted bits above 100% clear to everyone, the following WILL NOT BE TOLERATED:
    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.
    2. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.
  • There has been too much in the way of abhorrent personal behaviors in the past. These will cease. It doesn't matter who started it or who reacted to it - it will all result in moderator action. If you have to indulge your hatreds, for whatever reason, go do it elsewhere - and do not try and drag our forum-goers over to enjoy your hatreds.
  • We understand that people have strong feelings about our games, what we do for a living and how we respond (or don't) to comments on the forums. We all aren't going to agree about everything. So, BE CIVIL in your disagreements!
DO NOTs
  • DO NOT Transmit any message, information, data, text, software or graphic files, or other materials ("Content") that is unlawful (including illegal drug usage), harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, libelous, hateful or racially, ethnically, sexually or otherwise objectionable. This includes publicizing private information, such as individual's real names, IP addresses and anything else that might be used to identify them to the freakier members of the internet. This also means you may NOT publically share private communications (PM, email or anything else) without the original poster's permission.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any Content that contains a virus, Trojan horse or other mischievous Content.
  • DO NOT Post or transmit any unsolicited advertising, promotional materials, "junk mail", "spam", "chain letters", "pyramid schemes" or any other form of solicitation.
  • DO NOT link to posts on any other forums, or any other form of media, that breaches our rules. It will be treated just the same as if you had posted it here.
  • DO NOT Double Post, cross Post or restart closed threads.
  • DO NOT Intentionally or unintentionally violate any applicable local, state, national or international law, rule or regulation.
  • DO NOT Upload or transmit any Content that infringes any patent, trademark, trade secret, copyright or other proprietary rights ("Rights") of any party.
  • DO NOT post cheats or exploits; THIS INCLUDES ALL/ANY REFERENCES TO HACKING, PIRATED SOFTWARE etc.
  • DO NOT complain about being banned from a server and DO NOT complain about other players on servers - that is between you and the admin, no need to get the community involved.
Username, Avatar and Signature Rules
  • Multiple registrations result in a ban.
  • No offensive user names
  • Avatars:
    Avatars are disabled.
  • All signatures should not exceed the following size limits, you can have both text and images
  • - For text signatures: 4 lines normal size, 8 lines small size and up to 100 chars per line. Font sizes above 2 are not allowed. (Blank lines count as lines.)
  • - For images in signatures: 1 image up to 400 pixels wide, 150 pixels tall and 100kb in size plus 2 lines normal size text and up to 100 chars per line
Netiquette: Written text has no inflection, and, as such, you should be careful how you write your messages as interpretation will vary from person to person. Please take advantage of the built-in emoticons to add such expression to your words. Please remember the golden rule: to treat other forum users the way you would like to be treated. Please use common courtesy, and enjoy using Red Orchestra's forums
Offensive material
The following is a list of some things that MAY be considered "offensive" by the moderators and the team. This is NOT an exclusive list and it does depend very much on context.

Crossing the line into "offensive" territory is likely to get you asked to change your name, sig or avatar or to withdraw/delete posts. This will be done politely by the moderators. If you refuse to comply further action WILL be taken once started, ultimately leading to banning from the forums.

A key point: please attempt to use your brains. What is mild humour to you may well be deeply offensive to others. While we have no intention of acting as politically-correct "thought police", we are on the lookout for those things that can cause offense and, in some cases, are actually still illegal in some jurisdictions.
  1. Names recalling notorious war criminals or personalities.
  2. Names recalling atrocities and war crimes in general, or units with particularly odious histories.
  3. Use of obscenities and expletives.
  4. Blatant racism, mysogynism or many other "ism"s.
  5. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Nazism or Fascism; this does not include pics of soldiers who happen to have such symbols on their uniform, unless we feel this has been done to provoke. Please note that many Nazi symbols (including the Swastika) are still illegal in Germany and other countries and considered deeply offensive by many Europeans.
  6. Use of symbolism and regalia recalling Stalinism.
  7. On both the previous two, the moderators' views on the intention and impact of use of such symbols will be final - not yours. Please be understanding if you are advised to change something.
  8. In general, if a sig/avatar represents your allegiances in-game and is clearly "in part", it is likely to be fine; if the moderators feel you are trying to demonstrate unpalatable political allegiances, or to use it in an attempt to ridicule or provoke others you WILL be asked to change it. RO is NOT the place to make any extremist political statements of any kind.
Examples:
So people get the idea, some examples that would be considered offensive, numbered as above:
  1. "Hitler", "Beria"
  2. "NKVD Blocking Detachment", "Einsatzgruppen"
  3. This one should be pretty obvious...
  4. So should this - and it includes calling all Germans "Nazis" and all Soviets/Russians "Commies". It got boring 50 years ago, so stop it.
  5. Use of swastikas, fasces, SS-runes and so on for the Axis.
  6. There is actually very little overt symbolism from the Stalinist era; the hammer-and-sickle isn't offensive per se.
A simple rule-of-thumb: many Europeans find Nazi symbolism of any sort offensive; many Americans still find Soviet symbolism offensive. Engage your brain before using.




Final Note: this is NOT open to debate, so please do NOT start whining and moaning if a moderator asks you to change something. They will advise at first, giving reasons, then, if you take no notice, they will step up the pressure through to banning.

    I see you avoided responding to my claim that you have a sense of self-entitlement.

    What TWI choose to do with their franchise is their business, and if they want to support another indie like themselves then so be it.

      I fail to see how its entitlement for wanting a game to be available on all platforms possible. Entitlement is wanting it to stay ouya only or for me to want it to be PC only.

      And sure its their franchise and business, but why alienate the core fanbase from another product of theirs?

          Well from my perspective you seem to be 'whining' that the game isn't on the console that you want, and snubbing the console purely for that reason. From that I gather you feel absolutely entitled to have the game on your platform of choice, and will bite and kick until you have your way.

          I fail to see how letting another company make a spin-off for a specific console is going to alienate the community. If it were a sequel to the game then I could understand your complaints, but it's not.

            The ouya is a piece of crap on its own, I've already gone over in detail why I think that, no reason of which includes exclusivity of calamity. Also please, as you wanted me to address your point of entitlement, address my point of exclusivity. My point regarding exclusivity in relation to calamity is that all platform specific exclusivity is bad. This 'new gen' of consoles seems to have prided itself on that alone, even in their advertising. (with the little * for the first 6 months). Its not good, because without exclusives they literally have nothing else.

            Gee I don't know, maybe the fact that half of the people that posted on the news post about it not even knowing what an ouya was might have something to do with it. Maybe there are people that buy things solely because they want to support TWI but don't plan on buying a proprietary paperweight to do it.

            Honestly, why is multi-plat so bad in your mind that you seemingly whole-heartedly endorse exclusivity of games?

              you seem to be fighting the fact calamity is ouya exclusive but....what about killing floor being pc exclusive? do you have a problem with that?

                Regardless of your claim that all platform-exclusivity is bad (which is not the case), I still think you have a misplaced sense of self-entitlement...

                ... And since you're going to invent a viewpoint for me, I'm not debating it with you.

                Of course he doesn't; he's not arguing against platform-exclusivity, just arguing that he should be able to play this one particular game on his preferred platform.

                  I don't see a reason for there to be any argument. Nobody ever said this version of killing floor will never come to any other platforms. They've just said that for now it is only on Ouya. There is no cost to develop for Ouya and they allow any game that follows their guidelines. Ouya also easily allows for local multiplayer. Makes sense as a starting point for the game. Also lets an indie developer support an indie system. I see no harm in that.

                  I don't blame anyone for wanting this on pc too but just have patience with it. If the game is well received I would think there is a good chance there would be an upgraded version for pc. Complaining about it not being on pc yet isn't going to make them port it to pc faster. Just check back every few months and you will likely hear about it coming to pc at some point.

                    Hey guys, at last I think we don't need to discuss so sprightly

                    I have an Ouya and I'm really (...REALLY) having fun with it.
                    However, I admit Killing Floor Calamity will be better on PC.

                    More smooth framerate, more visual details, and first of all, I'd like online multiplayer.

                    OUYA version limits it to local-2-players multiplayer, that's a shame.

                    I think that, after some months of "exclusive" for OUYA, the game will spread in other markets / systems, and that's only a good thing

                      I really want to try the Ouya now. More specifically KF Calamity. I think my friend has one.

                      Semi off-topic: Hoping the "perks with 20 levels" are somehow translated to KF.

                        Yup, remember Towerfall?

                        More marketing to be exclusive for a while

                          We have nothing against multi-platform games, it's more about the way you're acting like an *** because you don't like a certain console and translate this to "Ouya should die because it stole a game from my prefferred platform".

                          I like the Ouya, it's a nice little machine with some cool games. Plus, it's paved the way for other android consoles to start coming out now that the bad PR stigma has been explored and worn out over them.

                          Only a matter of time, look at something called "Tron" that's being made in China.

                              Soon. If you preorder you'll receive an exclusive hat for Team Fort-no wait...
                              Apparently, having some stats of the game I love in my signature is the equivalent of stroking my e-penis in the mouth of others.
