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.

      It has nothing to do with routers, it has to do with the rediculous bandwidth restrictions ISP's in some countries enforce. Most of you enjoy an almost unlimited amount of gigabyte to download each month, with only a vague fair use policy to worry about.

      Some get only a limited amount of gigabytes to download each month. Thus making downloading patches of several gigabyte very costly.
      Going to jump in here. I have Comcast here in the States and they used to have unlimited downloading. Then one day they decided that a 250 gig cap was more than enough. You should have heard the uproar of protests from people who said that was just not fair.

      It's been quite some time now and I haven't ever reached 1/2 of that downloading cap and I download all sorts of demos, betas, free movies and tv shows, etc.

      So I hear you when your argument for not joining betas is bandwidth restrictions. I would not like having to figure out just what I could do without when there was something like this beta available.

        My apologies for my lack of humour, I didn't really consider it to be funny. Which is odd because I normally enjoy a good laugh.

        To be perfectly honest, I'm not in a country where bandwidth restrictions apply. As I'm dutch, but I know a few Belgians which only have acces to ISPs that enforce bandwidth restrictions.

        And 250 gig of bandwidth is more than enough for the majority out there, but there are some people that do require large amounts of bandwidth. Instead of treating them like customers, they would rather enforce a policy where you get cut off or being charged a price more expensive than is needed.

        Also it's the sheer burden of having to keep account of your monthly spendage which makes it far less comfortable, and yet you pay a good amount of money to be able to use the service.

        So I think that it's a good choice if TWI makes sure it doesn't provide another obstacle to those already burdened players.

          Uggh ... got me ... right ... in the sense of humour ...


          and, no, i'd rather have it rolled out in several gigabyte patches because i've been waiting since 2 weeks before release to play RO2 the way it's a beautiful game to play, and it's ready now but we're sat waiting. You must understand how much sadface that gives me. A lot of sadface.

            patience is a virtue.
            i prefer a well tested, big update without game-breaking bugs to a series of small patches that sometimes introduce more problems than they solve.
            sure it would be nice to already have some of the working refinements in the stock game, but yoshiro gave a reasonable explanation why they didn't roll out a patch yet and i can wait few more weeks.

              I can wait, but it just means that the game remains empty in the meantime, beta is almost always empty and after playing classic, vanilla kinda just... sucks.

                    Thus most of the people that are a subscriber to such an ISP, don't really have a choice, as there's either no competition or competition that doesn't threaten such a model.
                    I only know flatrates with unlimited traffic, flatrates that get limited after
                    a specific size of traffic and this contracts that allows you to stay online
                    as long as you want, but the traffic is limited to X gigabytes and you have
                    to pay for each additional Gig.
                    In which region is only a traffic limited flatrate available, and how much
                    would this 4 gig cost?

                    On one side i understand people with limited internet connections.
                    But on the other, i dont understand why you buy a game where you have
                    to expect to download some gig big updates when you don

                        Well if that's all that you care about, then why don't you play the beta?

                        BTW don't expect anything earth shattering from classic mode, it's the same ol' game but with a couple of more or less sutble tweaks added to it.

                          Different enough for many of us who have tried it

                          As for bandwidth, 60GB/month here, up from 30GB last year.

                            Regarding from my own experience in classic mode, the gameplay experience is much different from what we have now.

                                Which ISP do you have and how much do you pay for it.
                                And how big is your bandwith, DSL6000?
