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.

  • DEMO question,don't kill the messanger

    I have buddies from bunch of clans,but there are 4 clans that have been lurking the forums here and reading the posts.

    They also noticed that everytime there is a post related to the beta it gets closed.

    So most of them are aware that its only a month before the game releases and are sceptic that there will be any sort of beta at all for them to apply for key.

    So they asked me to make a post and ask if not beta,will there be any sort of DEMO after the release of the game?

    I'm just a messenger,do not draw you'r swords

    *Edit: They are impressed with what TWI brings to the table with the game,they love the way it looks from the videos,BUT they want to try how it feels,and thats what brings the demo question....*

    I think he was asking if there will be a demo available, not the beta necessarily.

    As for the OP, I don't know. There were promotional weekends with RO1 that got a lot of people to try the game that wouldn't otherwise, so I'd say it worked well the with the first game. Until TW says anything who knows, but it would be one more way of getting players who are unfamiliar with the experience to try it out.

        It's too late for that,bug testing invites with clans is closed,Yoshi got all the people he needed,they missout on this one cause lasted way to short and a lot of original RO clans missed out too....

        If I was on TWI place I would of taken mainly clans that previosly played the original RO,not just any clan application.

        I know The Ball has demo,but not sure if ROOST has.... but then again RO2 will have SP so maeby there is still hope for demo...

            I'm pretty sure TWI said they will have free weekends for RO2. Don't think they have mentioned hen the first one might be though. I hope it's very early.

              It really worked great in KF and RO those free weekends........sure the games were unplayable for 4 days and the communities got worse after each free weekend but it sure worked well.

                MP DEMO a week before release would be a smart move.

                  So what they want is a beta... to see if they want the game...

                  I'm sure there will be free weekends, and they are better then a demo.

                    a demo would be neat. Just like a co-op mission or something.

                      Whats free weekend? is that free weekend to play the MP or SP?

                      They just want a taste before they purchase it,they like everything about the game from what they saw and read,but want the taste of how the core game play feels(yes they are aware this is realistic FPS...),these people never played realistic FPS game before,will be their first one,well for 90% of them will be because the other 10% played some of the ARMA series.

                        Were you around during those early days when RO was a mod ? When only elite of the elite used to play and every match was a superior tactical experience . I wonder if RO gods are still around WickedPenguin , Lemur ,Donets , Putz .... are the ones I remember , the tournament was called BFE (Battle for Europe) . Lemur hated the original RO1 and refused to play it , he found it too unrealistic it was a step away from original mod experience even RO1 was not as hardcore as the mod was . So far I hear talk about HOS not having as much of a learning curve as the original that thought alone kinda scares me but will see.

                          That depends on twi, with a free weekend you get to play for 2 days. If you buy the game it unlocks the game forever since you have downloaded it already (most times).

                            What do you think how they found out about RO2...,I posted on their website and to some I spoke trough xfire,you think I didnt told them that I play ROOST and that RO2 will be much smoother?

                            I can see how RO2 is improved in many aspects over RO1 and no need to name them....I dont need to taste RO2 in order to buy,im preordering this puppy....

                            Not every body is the same,almost every body is sceptic when there is something new to be tried,its how people are these days."I can't force anybody into buying something-I'm not that good" LOL

                              Demo for RO2 - no.

                              Free weekends at some point - quite likely.

                              Beta - there will be more about that next week. There will be more opportunities!
