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.
  • 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. Breaches of confidentiality and privacy of any sort.
    3. Any form of racism, bigotry or attacks on race, creed or color.
    4. Linking to posts on other forums related to ANY of the above, whether you are the originator or not, without exception.

  • 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 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 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
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.

      While discord is free for setup we do prefer teamspeak. Thank you for you feedback.


      • #4
        If you prefer teamspeak it means you haven't used discord. And I mean properly used it Nobody in their right mind would prefer teamspeak over discord. Teamspeak has no advantages.


        • #5
          it is our own preference


          • #6
            Fine fine.

            But the way I see it you're deciding to ignore something benificial to a group such as yours due to your reluctance to change.


            • #7
              what u think is benificial, we do not everyone has there own opinion.

              thank you for your time.


              • #8
                Gonna throw this out here, but until discord manages to have a feature like Teamspeak's whisper list, it's trash.


                • #9
                  There are benefits to using TeamSpeak, but this is clearly off topic. I personally prefer TS3, I know clan who went back to mumble too.. I also see the downside coming when most people will turn to discord, people just do not think really far...

                    Well his website is down and the image isn't working. This is about the 3rd clan he's started.

                    Bu yes all I'm seeing here is people mentioning features discord actually has. But not knowing discord has. Discord has a private message feature. Which is exactly what whispering is. Whisper list you say. Well you just add more people to the chat. It's called a group chat. Entirely private only those you invite can see it. Private messaging only with more people. It's essentially got the entirety of skype built into it only it's not ****. And doesn't have video. Yet.


                    • #11
                      let continue the off topic then. With TS3 or Mumble you also are the owner of your personal space, no one record discussions, you're sure there will be no ads in the future and your personal datas will not be sold in the future, it's really appealing, like facebook was at start... but like facebook I'm pretty sure it will turn **** when it will be THE THING everyone will be on. I searched how they financed the project and they have 'investors' do you think these investors invest millions of dollars for peanuts? no they want like all investor something back. and pretty sure big data is one of them.

                      Personally I don't like it, it is shiny and all, but TS3 does exactly what I need, not less, not more.

                      If you prefer teamspeak it means you haven't used discord. And I mean properly used it Nobody in their right mind would prefer teamspeak over discord. Teamspeak has no advantages.
                      just your opinion

                        I think most people wouldn't give a ****.

                        Even then then it's only a maybe. The amount of money discord gets from its investors compared to facebook has two less zero's at the end of it. And all their investors are gaming related unlike facebook which doesn't have a focus. They don't run ads either. Something they say time and time again they don't want to do.


                        • #13
                          Most people don't give a **** about GMO food, that doesn't make it a good thing. Future will tell who's right until then, TS3 rules.

                            Discord clearly cant replace TS3. On discord, there is no channel gradation, no channel description what so ever, of course there is one, but nobody will see that one ever. For M&B events we use TS3 and honestly I dont see how would we use discord for that purpose.


                            • #15
                              It actually just depends on what you really want. If you want only voice communication, light text chat, full control of everything (from audio codec to advanced permission system, plugins, bots, and so on), TS is better. If you absolutely need all the fancy stuff from discord (youtube video integration in chat, voice/text chat channel separately, emoticons and other stuff like that; basically TS3 + a forum) discord may be better for you. But what really annoys me are these TOS and the fact you are not home on discord, you're on their service with all what that means... (ok you can also rent a TS3 server where you're also not home, but I really don't know anyone who rent a TS3 server everyone I know use TS3 on their own machine). The only nice thing I like with discord is that anyone can easily use it from web browser. But there is actually nothing I need from discord when I use TS3. More is not synonym of better.
