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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    1. Personal attacks, insults, antagonism of any forum-goers, moderators or Tripwire Interactive staff.

    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 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.

Username, Avatar and Signature Rules

  • - 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.

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 is said that the IS2, not unlike the tardis, is actually larger on the inside than on the outside.

              The IS2 breaks the paradox.

                      from forest of Siberia, to river of Elbe
                      come grasp the mighty 122mm cannon
                      from junction with the turret to brake of muzzle

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen
                      IS2, IS2, with its band of men
                      Feared by the bad, loved by the good
                      IS2, IS2, IS2.

                      He called the greatest tankers to a tavern on the green
                      They vowed to help the people of the Soviet spring
                      They handled all the troubles on the Russian country scene
                      And still found plenty of time to sing

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen
                      IS2, IS2, with its band of men
                      Feared by the bad, loved by the good
                      IS2, IS2, IS2.

                      He came to Berlin City with a feather in his cap
                      A fighter never looking for a fight
                      His cannon was always ready, and he kept his ammo sharp.
                      He used them to fight for what was right

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen

                      Feared by the bad, loved by the good
                      IS2, IS2, IS2.

                      With Uncle Joe and Zhukov they had a roguish look,
                      They did the deed the others wouldn't dare.
                      He captured all the money that the evil Hitler took,
                      And rescued many a lady fair

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen

                      IS2, IS2, IS2.

                      To cheating and corruption, he would never, never yield
                      And danger was his breakfast ev'ry day
                      The cobler in the hamlet and the farmer in the field
                      Were always helping him get away

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen
                      IS2, IS2, with its band of men
                      Feared by the bad, loved by the good
                      IS2, IS2, IS2.

                      He rode up to the Reichstag and was cheered by ev'ryone
                      His Lady Olga threw him a rose
                      The peasants knighted him the Marshal of the world
                      And that's the way that the legend goes

                      IS2, IS2, riding through the glen
                      IS2, IS2, with its band of men
                      Feared by the bad, loved by the good
                      IS2, IS2, IS2.
                      Thanks to this post I have come to love the IS2 and all it stands for.

                      I know I am not worthy to clean its treads with my tongue. Not even to scrub the oil spots that drop so majesticly and artisticly from its engine space onto the dusty concrete of the Berlin Ring road.

                      But I hope, one day, if I am good and faithful to the IS2. To see it grind its way majesticly up the High Street, 122mm sweeping from side to side in search of fascists and other evil wrong doers to dispatch with its heavenly fire and if I am really lucky for my eyes to be dazzled by the gleam of the Red Star on its turret.

                      If only I am worthy and keep all thoughts of such tractors as the Sherman, Panther and Tiger out of my mind.

                      I must think pure thoughts. I must think pure thoughts. I must think pure thoughts.

                          If one can bravely gift their undying faith (and their peepees) to the everlasting spirit of the IS-2, one can expect to be rewared by being endowed in such a way that is similar to the holy cannon of the IS-2.


                          • Will there be an IS2 riding the gamey Recon Planes?


                            • It is beautiful to see members of other forums rejoice in the praising of world's greatest machine. This proves that IS-2 is powerful enough to transcend internets borders and encourage us to ignore our differences. We all love IS-2. We all love 7thGuardsTankDiv. We are one.

                              Soon IS-2 will even convert the biggest Achtung Panzer addicts. And the world will be free from King Tiger fanboys forever.
