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.

    • Videos and threads linking to them here and on Steam are the best way to get those who haven't a clue, but might be interested enough in the mod to check it out.

      If 1000 people are in the steam group and only 15 show up to events, it pretty clear that you need to go fishing and catch a new wave of players. It's a new release, post some vids showcasing new features and gameplay in NEW threads. A new thread for every video, they won't live a long time, but the mod needs to get in front of new players, not remain buried in existing threads where only the faithful will see them.

          I don't even know what sub forums you are talking about.

          So nothing bad about a steam thread.
          Steam forums are eerily quiet but, as you said, I see no harm in posting there. If AAZ would be so kind I'm a bit busy with actually improving the mod to go around advertising it.


          Here are some things coming in 1.15 Alpha 3:

          Spoiler!


          There is a few more things I'm working on, and the Gewehr 43 and PPS-43 are also planned to be implemented for this version, but we'll see how that goes.

            This is quite logical because you dont like our mod and you dont play it (your own words)
            http://iommod.ucoz.com/forum
            Something I said last year, main reason was I don't like the sounds. Something I said before HOTW was even a thing. I don't play it because nobody else plays it. Events are all euro events scheduled as times such as 5am for me. That forum of yours is pretty dead. You have 50% of the posts made there.

            The steam forums for this game are more active than this forum. So making a thread there is only benificial.

              • +1 the official IOM forum is dead.

                If you did not understand, since beginning he's talking about creating a thread for IOM on RO2/RS Steam forum (if I understood) which is a good idea to reach people. But I would not advertise wile alphas are in test.. When 1.15 stable will be here, timing will be better I guess.

                  No I mean steam steam forums. The forum for the game itself. Like what Beskar Mando suggested. The steam RO2 forums are more active than the TWI RO2 forums. Anyone who uses both can see that. Sometimes on here no new post is made for an entire day.

                  Make an update thread on the steam RO2 forums. Bump it each time IOM updates. Works well for HOTW. Nobody complains and tons of people go "ooh what's that".

                    • The no reload sound for the german halftrack MG may just be an RO2 problem. Noticed the same thing playing offline testing out Caen outskirts. Could just happen offline as well.

                      • -Axis Grenadier role now replaces Axis Standard Assault on almost all maps. This is to reduce the number of SMGs as they were less common in the Wehrmacht, producing a more interesting asymetrical Balance. The Grenadier has a Kar98k, and carries a large number of grenades - 4x M24 (no frag sleeve.) He is based on German storm groups and especially Pioneers practically being overladen with grenades.
                        Thats just a VERY GOOD thing. Thank you tremozl.

                        I wish you will do similar thing with german elite rifleman, so on most of 1941-42 maps and on some 1943 maps german elite rifleman will have kar98k + pistol instead of G41.

                        This would be realistic because germans had MUCH less semi auto rifles but they had more pistols. And in fact german elite rifleman wouldnt even get nerfed, on medium distances kar98k is not much worse than g41 while in close combat pistol is better.

                          Yes, this. There is crossover between the steam & TWI forums, but there are a lot of both new players and players on the Steam forum that don't come to the TWI forums. If you posted updates there and links to video you will get new blood interested in the mod. I can't stress enough that video will sell it, the mod provides a new and different experience from vanilla, a list of weapon tweaks will not catch the average players attention.

                            Indeed. Almost every time someone makes an angry thread there about how RO2 feels wrong I try to point them to IOM. Does not always work, but most of the time one or two people give it a shot. Sure there are about 2 threads a week where IOM is advised.

                              Yeah, honestly I think the biggest appeal is not the game play itself, but the new content, at least to the average player. But there are the RO1 vets who don't know about IOM or the average player who doesn't like the way RO2 feels.

                                In the past week there has been a couple of instances of people essentially saying 'WHY DOES NOBODY PLAY CLASSIC YOU SCRUBS?!?!' Every time IOM is mentioned.

                                Admittedly there are some sillies there. I'm sure someone demanded a PPD, I mentioned IOM and they just said something along the lines of them not wanting to play crumby mods, but at least a few people then knew that there was a mod out there with a PPD in it.
