Code of Conduct


Welcome to the Warspear Online Discussion Forums! These forums are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of  game with other players. Community forums are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating in these forums.


The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behavior is expected of you and what behavior you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behavior. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behavior that they feel is inappropriate. Also, suspension or banishment from the game will always result in the same in regard to forum access. Your access to these forums is a “privilege,” and not a “right.”  AIGRIND  reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines.

 
 

We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category:

  • Refer to extremely violent real life actions
       
  • Pornography

Posting Unreleased Content / Hacking Data Files

This category includes both clear and masked language in posts, signatures, and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:


 
  • Are an inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
       
  • Are pornographic in nature


If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:


   
  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity


While these repercussions may seem harsh, we feel very strongly that this behavior has no place on the forums due to its extremely offensive and inappropriate nature.


Inappropriate Language


This category includes language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:


 
  • Are a mildly inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
       
  • Are otherwise considered objectionable

This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:


   
  • Insultingly refer to other characters, players,  AIGRIND  employees, or groups of people
       
  • Result in ongoing harassment to other characters, players, AIGRIND employees, or groups of people


If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:


   
  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity


Harassment takes many forms, and is not necessarily limited to the type of language used, but the intent. Repeatedly targeting a specific player with harassment can lead to more severe action. The idea behind this is to prevent any one player from consistently being uncomfortable in the forums.

  • Negatively portray major religions or religious figures


If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

  • Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity


Cross Linking Threads


This category includes:


   
  • Linking to threads from other forums

  • Posting on another account
       
  • Having someone post on your behalf


If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:


   
  • Be permanently banned from posting on the forums


 
 

IMPORTANT


    Repeatedly violating any area of the Terms of Use or Forum Code of Conduct, including the areas detailed above, will often result in permanent banishment from the forums.
    This policy is not language-restrictive. Language that falls under this policy will always be subject to the repercussions listed, whether it is inappropriate in English or any other language.


The bottom line is that we want Warspear Online forums to be a fun and safe environment for all players. While playing on WO and posting on its forums, you will encounter thousands of other players who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We’ve done everything we can to make this a great environment – now it’s up to you!

If it's in green - it's official. The rest is my humble opinion.
