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.

    On another note, this thread is getting a little too 'weedy'

    from the forum rules:
    So talking about actually tokin' it up is probably not good so much :/
    Yeah you are right, well stop. Just give it some years, I will then make MG42 pot thread if politicians legalize. There then no rules

      Yeah but what about legal drug usage eh? So Zakarro what you described is called dabbing. Too much work, just get a vape pen... which also works for e-juice, to keep it on-topic.

        Yeah Colorado F yeah!!! Wouold that be considered a loophole of forum rules?

        Can TWi plz officially state the correct legal definition? STate law? federal? Heck what continent? Netherlands?Spain? Germany? Russia? Catch my drift?

        As for vape pens thats what I use for nicotine, just upgraded from VEAs which the coil only lasts 2 days..... Got me a kangertech aerotank 3 which everyone swears by.... Yeah the coil lasts weeks but this **** leaks nicotine 50% of the time in my mouth. Friggen idiot that sold it to me claimed it doesnt leak, I knew I couldnt trust him the moment I walked into that place. Of course he had to be Milanense, as soon as i told him Im part sicilian thats where we didnt like each other. For the uninformed, northern italians are pieces of **** snobs with all the money and treat the southern italians like scum, they think we are dirty and peaseants. Its also racial, north usually have blonde hair blue eyes due to austro hungarian influence, south has more moorish blood since sicily was conquered by moors hundreds of years ago. Mafia took care of that and got rid of those guys.

            Lets not derail but I put that on purpose to make it confusing, BECAUSE IT IS RIDICOULOUS AND CONFUSING in the first place. lol

            Im sorry but in my experience not my opinion the same ones that make and enforce "laws" are the biggest lawbreaking corrupt f(*&)( ever.

            Back on topic since I just derailed my own thread, just had to let that out my chest.

            Thank you.

              Well just to reinforce the topic,
              I haven't done any of the vaping so far since I don't know how much health-based research has been done about it. People on my campus do it constantly; occasionally I walk through a cloud of exhaled smoke- it's alot nicer than when that happens with cigarettes/menthols.

                You can barely smell it, I get nauseas if I smell tobacco burning. Vapes I cant smell.

                There hasnt been much health based research but in any case who cares its lesser of two evils I feel better vaping I think thats enough health investigation. Btw, if You thinking of starting dont, vaping imho is just for people getting off "stinkys" like me. You dont want to be addicted to nicotine trust me.

                  Yeah I think that's my main issue. Smoking anything for me is just a matter of if someone offers (and people are stingy, they don't offer very often) so I wouldn't have a reason to look for an alternative, tis strictly an occasional thing for me.

                      I believe we just passed some law in California equating nicotine vapors with cigarette smoke as far as anti-smoking restrictions are concerned.


                      But clearly its better than puffing the tobacco leaf. Doesn't get much nastier.


                      Now if they would only catch on with cigar aficionados, so I don't ever have to gag on that crap again...

                          I've smoked mainly bongs most days for a few years, and my lungs are starting to feel it. Back in the day the dumb hicks I went to high school with smoked poppers, which is basically a water bottle with some water and a (preferably glass or metal) tube as a stem through the side. Simple makeshift plastic bong. Then they'd rip off entire chunks of cigarettes, I saw one kid do an entire cig once, and shove it in the tube. Then they pack a little kush on top and light it up, eventually sucking the cig into the water and inhaling.

                          It was the dirtiest dirt **** I've ever seen, and I still tried it a few times. Overdoing that filterless plastic cancer smoke feels like heroin withdrawal lmao. Long story short, I think I perma-****ed my lungs. I'd be willing to look into a vape if anyone has good recommendations.
