Forum Rules

  • 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 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 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.

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.

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.

  • Has anyone ever had a killing floor based dream?

    I had one a few nights ago, and I haven't played KF in 2 months.
    In the dream I encountered a new specimen called a "Young Clot". It was a humanoid creature that didn't have skin. They were spawning from a large fleshy nestlike structure. A scrake gestured for me to walk over to the structure, and I did. I then started to attack it with my chainsaw, and then the Scrake knocked me down and said "Do not interfere with the devil's mastery". **** was weird.

    I had one that felt very IRL. Someone intentionally pushed me over to leave me with the gorefasts with only a 9mm.

    I woke up in rage.

      Funny, I had the first and only KF dream last night. Found myself in a totally abandoned part of Manhattan, heard some mumbling behind a door, opened it and a scrake started out at me. Ran for a while, but it kept following me no matter how far I went. Since the "levels" in my dreams have been recurring fairly often of late, I figured I'd try to trap him in a room in the university. Unfortunately, since the last dream the basement level window I was going to had had bars installed (my mind would be a real asshole AI director in L4D/AS). Turned around and the scrake was right next to me swinging, barely dodged its saw as it hit the wall and spat stinging bits of concrete and pulled myself back up to street level. Made it down into the subway station, figuring a train would put some distance if they were still running. Unfortunately, it decided to rage at this point and charge after me, just as the train was coming. Tried to jump onto the tracks to avoid the saw, but ended up getting bisected just as the train hit me...

      They say dreams are practice for real dangerous situations, so I guess if I am ever chased by a scrake I should avoid subways at all costs? Either that or I should avoid telling people my dreams.

        Hmm, to be honest I mostly don't dream games stuff except from Resident Evil stuff, but I had few KF related dreams. One of the weirdest ones was that I was sick and couldn't go to school, so they said they'll send teachers to my home and I'll study at home with teachers, and well, turned out the teacher was a siren... I edned up having her scream in my ears, and when I woke up turned out someone just made a tea, hence why the scream in my dream and maybe also why Siren at all in my dream

        Also once I dreamt I was fighting with Patriarch and I found a secret door at Biotics lab which led to Resident Evil lab and well all that dream went into huge mash-up of other games, odd enough huh?


        • #5
          yes, and they were very unpleasant. I was still myself, so no weapon/combat experience, etc. and there were gorefasts I could see trying to get in my house, banging on the windows.... D:

          also had one w/the patriarch chasing me like he does in the game. woke up right when he reached me. whenever I'm the last one left ingame and I'm in that scenario, I cant help but be uneasy.

            Quite a while back I had a dream that I was running through some kind of warehouse taking out fleshpounds and husks with my ninja-style kicks.

              I had a dream once where i was kiting (i think, this was a vague memory) around a level much like Suburbia, it was night and i was running down an alley much like the ones in Suburbia.

              If i remember correctly it was a 3rd person experience, and that's what a few of my dreams are like.

                Phew so you had unlimited grenades. That almost sounded like a nightmare.

                  I did. Don't remember the details, though.

                    I once dreamt about dragon ball Z, though I hate that stuff, but never of KF; maybe I only of what's been bad to me

                        I remember seeing myself in a top-down perspective once after I played for way too long over a certain week. Didn't have anything but a pistol and AK, made my way through my neighborhood through agility alone (something I lack in real life) and ended up in the streets of London. Across the Atlantic ocean. Hmm.

                          lol I see what you did there. The first time I encountered that glitch it was with a friend playing firebug. He kept running back and forth down on the second floor of office throwing fire grenades shouting "FEAR ME FEAR ME!"

                            I haven't had a dream entirely about KF, but every once in a while zeds will show up here and there... One day I was in a church, long time since I had been there so I was observing what had changed. Out from the middle of nowhere a stream of clots shambled their way up to the front and disappeared down some doorway hidden from the masses. Strangely enough, no one panicked. It was as if it was a normal part of their sermon, so I just shrugged it off

                            Another time I woke up dimly remembering something about gorefasts, Tribes: Ascend, and its theme about going fast

                              I had sexual dream in trader room and no, not with specimen or trader ***** :|
