Official Triad Wars Forum Rules

IainUFGIainUFG Posts: 2,479Member Community Manager

Welcome to the Triad Wars forums!

The Official Triad Wars forums are a place for users to engage in constructive discussions about Triad Wars. As part of creating a friendly and supportive community, we strive to maintain a level of civility and politeness. To that end, we reserve the right to edit, delete, lock or move any post without notice in our sole discretion. Here is a list of basic forum rules which will guide our decisions:

  1. Do not post: (i) pornography; remarks which are sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially or ethnically offensive; (ii) obscene or vulgar language; derogatory comments based on sexual orientation, or gender; (iii) information that encourages or illustrates illegal activity (outside of the context of Triad Wars); or (iv) links to sites that contain any of the aforementioned.

  2. Do not troll or flame other posters. Attacking and insulting each other is not conducive to a productive, constructive discussion. Attacks against staff or players, publicly in the forums or privately via PM, are not allowed. Disagreement is a part of discussion, but there is no reason to be hostile.

  3. Do not use profanity, link to websites, or post images or screenshots that contain profanity. Do not attempt to circumvent the profanity filter.

  4. Do not make “call out” posts to target a Triad Wars team member, single out a player for ridicule or point out actions or behaviors in game that you consider unsportsmanlike. Repeatedly targeting another person will be considered ongoing harassment and will not be tolerated.

  5. Do not derail other people’s threads. If you want to discuss something unrelated to the topic indicated by the title of the thread, search to see if there is already a thread discussing your topic before creating a separate thread.

  6. If you have a suggestion, concern or complaint, you may make a constructive post to bring it to light and promote discussion in the Feedback and Suggestions section of the forum. Be advised that no matter how valid your feedback may be, posts will be moderated according to the forum rules.

  7. Do not make non-constructive posts. These include but are not limited to: creating NERF X! threads, /bumping threads, rant posts and demands for answers from the Triad Wars team. “Goodbye” posts will be moderated on a case-by-case basis.

  8. Do not make petition threads, or inspire others to do so. Do not encourage, promote, endorse, or incite legal action against others or the Triad Wars team. Discussion of on-going legal matters involving players or Triad Wars team members is not permitted.

  9. Do not post conspiracy threads, or information that is inaccurate, false, or misleading.

  10. Do not post about exploits in the game. If you believe you have found an exploit in-game, do not discuss it or “test” it; report it immediately to a Triad Wars moderator

  11. Do not post about phishing scams. If you receive a suspicious email regarding a Triad Wars Games account, do not reply or follow its links. Copy the email into a PM to a moderator.

  12. Do not accuse others of hacking or cheating. If you believe a player has been violating the rules in game, you should report them to a Triad Wars moderator.

  13. Do not attempt to impersonate staff or moderators. Additionally, “moderator notified,” “post reported,” and “in before the lock” posts are not constructive and do not add to the discussion.

  14. Do not respond to or quote posts that violate these rules. Quoting a post that is in clear violation of these rules will result in your post being removed with the post you are replying to. If you feel that a post is in violation of these rules, please report it.

  15. Do not engage in thread necromancy. If a topic has languished for more than a few weeks, create a new thread and link back to the old post if necessary for reference.

  16. Do not cross-post or spam the forums. As a courtesy to others before beginning a new thread, please use the Search feature to see if an active thread on that topic has already been established. If so, place your comments there instead (as long as it doesn’t constitute thread necromancy). Multiple threads on the same topic divide the discussion and create a disparate communication path.

  17. Do not “sock-puppet,” proxy post, or use another account to evade a forum suspension or ban. Using a second account to avoid a forum suspension may result in action against both the original account and the second account.

  18. Do not post your own personal details, those of other players or Triad Wars team members. Respect the privacy of others and maintain your account's security by not providing personal information such as full names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, photos, profiles from Facebook or Linkedin, etc.

  19. Do not use this forum for advertising. Do not attempt to use the forums or the private messaging system to lure players to another website, forum or game. Do not engage in the sale or receipt of services.

  20. You may post screenshots, signature pictures, videos, audio clips and other images by linking them from external image hosting sites, provided that they do not infringe upon the intellectual property rights of any party. For example, do not post copyrighted images or other content that you do not have rights to. Forum rules apply to all media posted.

  21. The Triad Wars forums are primarily for discussion of Triad Wars. However, we may allow a wider variety of non-disruptive discussion in the Off-Topic forum, and on server-specific forums, in our sole discretion. In order to provide a safe and constructive environment for all of our forum members, certain topics of discussion are not allowed on the Official Triad Wars Forum. Some examples of topics for which discussion is prohibited include, but are not limited to:
    • Political discussion
    • Religious discussion
    • Inappropriate discussion as defined in Rule 1
    • Real-world topics including current world events and sensitive historical events
    • Dedicated discussion of video games other than Triad Wars and/or limited discussion of other United Front Games products, including posts that compare and/or contrast Triad Wars with other games

  22. You may have a signature, but it will be subject to the forum rules. Additionally, signature images are to be no larger than 500 pixels wide by 150 pixels tall. If you use a signature image, you may have no more than 2 lines of text in addition to the image. Signatures may not be animated.

  23. Do not repost material a moderator has removed, or repost a topic/post that has been locked. Do not edit or change a moderated post. If you do not understand why your post was edited or removed, you can PM a moderator to ask.

  24. Do not post about forum moderation decisions. If you have a complaint or concern about a forum moderation decision, you may PM a staff member to inquire about it. Appeals against forum moderation decisions will be considered. While it may seem like there is always someone doing something worse, this does not make minor violations any less valid. We enforce all aspects of the Forum Rules.

  25. Do not post private communication between yourself and Triad Wars team members. This includes support tickets, petitions, email or private message correspondence, in game chat logs, etc.
