Forum Specific Rules
« on: March 10, 2020, 08:20:37 AM »
Let's get technical for a minute.

By using this forum you accept that you are now a part of this site. Anything you say or do here will be a reflection of the site, Admin, Moderators, QA and other staff. That said, we don't like to look bad.

We do like to have fun, joke around and sometimes we do get carried away. That is fine! This is a safe place.

However, you need to keep a few things in mind.

First, we do NOT tolerate any form of abuse. If you plan to attack another member because of their beliefs, struggles, the fact they like cats, things they post, or anything else.. don't. You will be banned faster than I care to admit. As much fun as BliZZ is, and as devious as Evil BliZZ is, Pissed off BLiZZ will show up at your house and shit in your lawn.

There will be no flaming here. If you have a problem with another member, something they post, a mistake they made, etc. Take it up in private. If you cannot handle the situation on a personal, private level, you are to notify any Moderator or Admin immediately. We will handle it.

All posts need to stay on topic. The help threads are thinned out regularly. Just because your post disappeared doesn't mean you did anything wrong. We want to celebrate the victories, and be supportive of others. However, too many of these types of posts clutter the threads for those players still looking for hints, clues and answers.

If you want to celebrate and go off topic, use the General Chit Chat board. While it is still monitored and moderated, we don't remove posts from there as often. Feel free to talk about anything and everything in that board.

Never post answers, spoilers or overly-helpful hints. While the levels can get difficult, it is much more satisfying to get a small nudge and get the answer yourself than to have it handed to you. We do not employ spoiler tags here, you are expected to know the difference between a helpful nudge and a spoiler.

In the case that you make a mistake (it happens, no worries) your post will be edited or removed. If we have to remove it for non-obvious reasons you will get a PM with a quick explanation. In most cases this is due to a hint being too helpful, not that you did something wrong.

Be polite! We cater to the entire world here. Customs, expressions and verbiage is different around the world. What may be socially acceptable to you, might be offensive to others. Asynchronous communications can sometimes become difficult to understand how your words should be taken. Please use smileys to help get your point across, let the others know you are joking or in a good mood.

Likewise, if you are sensitive or do get offended, you may want to browse a while before you join and post here. Nothing posted here should be taken personally. The other side of the coin, so to speak, is that your customs will be different than the one that posted whatever offended you. Just like them, you need to be understanding of miscommunications and differences. If someone says something that upsets you, try to handle it in private on a 1 on 1 basis. If you cannot, get Admin and and the Moderators involved.

Finally, we love to promote the site. Anything you post here becomes the property of ACWoT. Your quotes may be used in promotional materials, on ads, pages, etc. (We will properly quote you, using your Forum username). By posting here, you agree to this. However, your real name, image or personal information will NEVER be used without your permission.

Keep your eye on this board. These rules can change or get amended at any time. Now go, have fun, make friends, solve some riddles.
