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.

  • Up to 10 emoticons are allowed in a post
  • Political discussions are prohibited.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

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.

Republic Of Korea instead Of the ANZACS please!

  • Republic Of Korea instead Of the ANZACS please!

    No Republic of Korea planned?
    So I was looking at the planned features for future updates and I noticed how ARVN and ANZAC factions are mentioned. \

    However, I did a little bit of research and apparently South Korea sent 320,000 soldiers to Vietnam; six times that of Australia. Is there a reason RoK forces aren't planned at this time despite their big role in the conflict? Just curious.

    based on casualty figures the ROKs saw way more action than the ANZACs- ROK lost 5000 KIA to the Aussies 500- that statistic alone is very telling as to who saw more combat.
    but as Static said, equipment wise, the ROKs would be no different in their TOE than the US or ARVN.

    they were absolutely feared by the viet kong which refused to engage them unless victory was assured

    ROK South Korean Forces In Vietnam
    why are we adding ANZACS?? when the south koreans gave more troops and were more well known then them??

    The South Koreans sent over 300000 soldiers to vietnam the most besides the USA!

    The Republic of Korea (South Korea), under the administration of Park Chung-hee, took an active role in the Vietnam War. From 1964 to 1973, South Korea sent more than 300,000 troops to Vietnam. The South Korean Army, Marine Corps, Navy, and Air Force all participated as an ally of the United States. The number of troops from South Korea was much greater than those from Australia and New Zealand, and second only to the U.S. military force. The military commander was Lieutenant General Chae Myung-shin, ROK Army.

    The South Korean forces had 3,800 combat deaths and 41,000 enemies were killed
    Capital Mechanized Infantry Division (Tiger)
    ROK 2nd Marine Brigade (Blue Dragon)
    ROK 9th Infantry Division (White Horse)
    Operations involving South Korea during the Vietnam War
    Battle of Bong Son
    Battle of Trà Bình
    Operation Hong Kil Dong

    look at these pictures!

    WHY are we getting anzacs?? when the REAL faction we should get is NOT the south vietnamese army or the ANZACS but the South Korean forces in vietnam!!

    Wait wait wait.
    Why not the South Vietnamese? Adding RVN Armed Forces would add so much more than adding the South Koreans. New vehicles, weapons, etc.

              You aren't helping them with this spam either.

              People will almost want to ignore because of this spam by you and you alone.

                this is a entirely different thread trying to get voice actors for the mod not a offficial request to AMG devs


                • #9
                  Well from what everyone sees is that is more of a request to AMG, rather than gathering voice actors. Moreover you already dont need them to make ROK anyway if there is already a mod starting up.

                    What about your other thread that isn't related to voice actors but is this exact thread? You just spammed. Again.
