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 am thinking of getting a Mosin Nagant mainly because they are so cheap. That and the history behind them. But I am new to shooting, and the biggest round I shot was 7.62x39. How does 7.62x54R compare? Twice as much recoil? I can handle my AK fine, but I am not sure how I would take the larger caliber.

        I am mainly interested in the full size 91/30. I am sure the recoil on the carbines would be too much for me.

          Well, I really would not worry about the recoil. Unless you are like 4 feet tall and weight something like 60 pounds.

          The recoil of 7,62x54R is not that big. Of course it

          • Ok, I think I'll keep an eye out for a cheap one. If my gun store sells small amounts of ammo for a cheap price, I will get it.

            I might be able to pick up an M44 for $100. No tax or anything either, since it is a private seller. I'll see how it goes.

            Edit: The top dark one is the one that I might be getting:

            • ~100$ is acceptable, just ask what condition the bore is in and the general shape of the rifle. You don't wanna end up with something that can't hit the broad side of a barn.

              • Picked up this CZ-75B today and really like it. An extremely underrated line of handguns.



                This thing is seriously awesome. It feels well balanced, the ergonomics are excellent, feels like a tank, and the action is really smooth. The sights are similar in size to my Glock 19's and they even glow in the dark!



                I'm not too big on the safety as I'm a lefty with pistols but I figured I'll never be carrying it to it wasn't a big deal. It's definitely made my 19 feel alot lighter. The trigger in DA mode is definitely a bit rough but not something that bothers me much. SA mode has some take up but breaks pretty cleanly.

                I'm extremely happy and will definitely be looking at more CZ's in the future.

                • Sorry to drag the thread away from pics but I've got a newbie question of my own for the vets.

                  Are gun shows usually the best way to go for cheap surplus rifles? I went to a local gun shop today and they had several Nagants, Enfields, and others but the guy behind the counter (who was a bit of an asshole) said they weren't selling anything for less than $270. Besides being out of my price range for my first rifle that also seemed like a massive ripoff considering similar ones are available online for $80. I don't have a C&R FFL of course though so ordering anything online would be quite a hassle.

                  There's a 60 table gun show not too far away next weekend and a 100 table one the weekend after that. Are cheap milsurps pretty easy to find at shows or would I be better off setting up a dealer transfer and ordering something online (and waiting some weeks for shipping )? By cheap I mean ideally around $100 but I'd be willing to go up to $200 or so for something worth the money.

                    Depends on the rifle, if you get say a 91/30 you'll experience recoil which I'd describe as a good sturdy push. With the M38 or M44 you'll be looking at something a bit harder. If you can handle an AK you should be fine, recoil is recoil, it's all about holding the gun right then it doesn't matter.

                    I might not be the best person to ask though, I'm usually concentrating too hard on my target to even notice nor care about recoil. I also really don't get the complaints about recoil from rifles like the M44, never had an issue with it myself, I take my Polish M44 to the range every time I go, it's a real hoot and holler!

                    • I will be buying 200 plus rounds of 7.62x39 on Monday, and I will be right at a Big 5. I heard they sell decent and cheap Mosins, so I might have a look there.

                      I think I'll stick with a full length to.

                      Also, to the poster above, at the gun show see if you can find someone who is privately selling. Or look on an online site to see who is selling nearby. I got my AK off of Calguns.net (we met in person and did the PPT).

                        • Nice carbine! While I was getting my CZ-75B there was a M1 Carbine on the wall all decked out in crappy looking plastic furniture. It had a pistol grip and looked pretty bad.

                              • How much did that Carbine cost? Ever since I held the Auto Ordnance one a few months ago, I really wanted one. It felt really nice and light.
