Upcoming Forum Overhaul

We are starting the work to switch our forums, which have been based on a version of the Vbulletin forum software since their inception with the Red Orchestra mod (then VB 3 and currently VB 5.1) to an all new forum software called Xenforo. After researching it, we feel Xenforo is a better choice for the future as it has a vibrant modding and addon community that will allow us to extend the functions of these forums in ways players will enjoy.

As part of this, at some point in the near future these forums will be locked down so we cant merge over all of the existing content into the new forum database. It will likely then be a few more days as we work on the new forum and correct any issues from the merge.

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. Name Shaming and Public "Witch Hunts" are also not allowed.
    3. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    4. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    5. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.[/COLOR]
  • 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, "necro 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
[COLOR=darkred]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.

    Just because some mentions $12.99 as a pricetag doesn't mean he will be that price. Wasn't Mrs. Foster like 7.50?

Plus as I said, it is not common to add weapons along with characters (except with Tom Banner and the Zweihander, which was recieved rather poorly).

    Not to mention that new characters require new voice acting, which cost money. And apparently, it is Tripwire's new thing to count on the new characters to pay for the numerous free updates. So... I doubt they'll release it as a free, content update.
    It may not be a Nazi Zombie game, it's nonetheless fun to add some historical equipment to it. I rather enjoy using historical firearms in modern times. And I can definately see that Killing Floor is about fun. I think having both modern and historical thrown into the mix just makes killing Zeds all the more fun. Especially when we're raining hell on those bosses.

    You may got a point though... they would probably get us to pay up for it.

    1920s Chicago Mobster:
    With the Drum Mag Thompson like you said.

    WWII US Airborne;
    Add the M2 Carbine with him.

    Why? Because the M1A1 Carbine was widely used by Paratroopers in the war, and this was upgraded into the M2 Carbine. It can be switched from Fully-Automatic to Semi-Automatic. There is also an extended mag for 30 rounds to make it an efficient Killing Floor rifle for Commando

    WWII British Commando;
    Add the Sten gun for SWAT, as it was widely used by British Commandos during the war.

    WWII Russian Female Sniper;
    Add a Scoped Mosin-Nagant(Or a scoped SVT-40)

    Why? Cause there were female snipers in Russia during the war. So it's actually fitting.

    What do you think?

    This would add a unique variety with WWII characters, as Anton Strasser is already in standard German Infrantry uniform, so there's more types of WWII infrantry and would not at all make people think you're trying to add only more US characters(And they could actually see Killing Floor 2 having some fun with a mobster as an addition to the roster.)

    This being said, that's still a pretty wonky reason to add a marine. You didn't get a marine with the inclusion of the Trenchgun, nor a Belgian soldier along with the P90. Neither a did an Israeli soldier pop along with the deagle... Or a cowboy with the 1858.

    IF we really have to go that route, I'd much rather have a mafioso character. At least it would be fairly iconic.

    No, if we need to add yet another WW2 veteran, let it be from another country. Russian, French, British, Canadian... But not yet a freaking Marine.
    And if we're going to talk about adding other WWII vets, please add in these guns:

    WWII Russian:
    PPSh-41 for SWAT
    Scoped Mosin-Nagant for Sharpshooter
    And the TT-33 Sidearm for Gunslinger

    WWII British:
    Sten gun for SWAT
    Lee-Enfield for Sharpshooter
    And the Webley Mk VI Revolver for Gunslinger

    But other than that, if you're going to add a Thompson, let a WWII US Marine take the stand. Please add in these other guns BEFORE talking about that.

Just the one WWII Marine for the Thompson that's being added. If a World War II gun is being added, it's actually fitting for a WWII US soldier to be the addition to the Thompson.

    I could also ask for a Cold War Russian, and to have an AK-47 with the undermount Flamethrower for the Firebug/Commando.

    Anton Strasser looks so lonely without another World War II buddy by his side. And it would make an awesome addition to the M1A1 Thompson!

    I mean, if this character was some kind of badass soldier(but has christmass skin), instead of being Santa, that would be instabuy. And I know it's only me but... we still don't have clear explanation how seasons tie to whole lore. Don't get me wrong it's super santa and all, but... a Santa?

    (Kinda hoping we'll be getting other characters that are NOT DLCs every once in a while)
    Yes it is a little to high but I held off buying Mis. Foster, Garys success as an actor shows he is worth every penny in my eyes.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm more than impressed that the man himself sat out to voice a character, for a "medium game" (meaning, neither AAA nor a little indie one).

    Still, paying nearly half the price of the game for a character that doesn't even mean anything to the game (since Killing Floor doesn't really have a "story" nor "protagonists") is really a pain in the ***. I'm all for supporting the developpers, but I think it would actually benefit them to make it just a wee bit cheaper... More people would buy it (hopefully?). Maybe it's just me though.
