General Rules

In order to avoid any confusion about what people can and can't do on any forums; here is a more-or-less complete list of the rules. Unless explicitly stated, one should assume that the following rules apply to every forum and thread. Some forums may have additional rules, so check any appropriate "stickies" before you post.

A Note about Respect

We're here to have fun and to share information with each other. With so many different personalities gathered in one place, clashes are bound to happen now and then. But how one conducts oneself during these situations makes all the difference. Don't get us wrong, opinions are valued on the forums, yours and everybody else's. But please remember to respect each other and have discussions and not arguments. If you find yourself disagreeing with another member, think first and then calmly compose your words. Don't be insulting if you happen to disagree with someone, just understand that their views are different than yours. Just really treat each other how you would like to be treated.

You may not use the N0Fear Forums to:

1. Transmit unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, vulgar, obscene, hateful, racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable content. Profanity filter dodging and filtered words/statements with clear vulgar intent will also be considered outright violations.
2. Post or transmit sexually explicit images, text or other content that is deemed by PWE staff to be offensive.
3. Impersonate any person including, but not limited to, representatives and staff of PWE .
4. Advocate cheating during gameplay including, but not limited to, modification of the game program files.
5. SPAM by posting frequent and/or annoying messages in the forums.

Violation of any of the above mentioned rules may be considered grounds for an immediate ban of the forums.

Other rules for posting:

7. No trolling, or flaming.
Any form of personal insult will not be tolerated. General rule of thumb: if you think that what you are about to post is insulting, don't post it.

8. No posting of personal conversations or personal information (from IMs or PMs).
Topics such as these are considered breaches of privacy. Please refrain from posting such items including, but not limited to, email exchanges with GMs, admins, moderators, PWE Customer Service or personal communications with other members.

9. No links to illegal downloads or ill-gotten copyrighted materials.
This applies to MP3s, games, pirated software, movies, books, comic scans, the works.

10. No advertising of any sort.
Posts or threads containing advertisements of any sort will be removed. Users posting such articles will be warned and/or will have their account privileges suspended, revoked, and/or terminated.

11. No power-posting, spamming, bumping and/or flaming.

12. No inappropriate discussion types.
Inappropriate discussion-types include, but are not limited to, the following discussion types: Politics, Religious issues, Abortion debates, etc. Common sense should dictate what is appropriate or not.

13. Keep posts in the appropriate forum.
For example, don't post a topic about Untamed in the Winged Elf forums.

14. Keep posts on-topic.
Keep the topic in mind when you post. Refrain from posting irrelevant information.

15. No mouthing off at staff.

16. No bandwidth theft.
Every time you link to a picture hosted on someone else's site without their permission, you are stealing their bandwidth. If you want to post an image, download the image and re-upload it to one of the many free hosting sites out there.

17. No representing banned members.
Don't represent any banned individuals. They were banned for a reason. Assisting them in any way or form will lump you in the same boat.

18. No public discussion about disciplinary action administered to members.
If you have any questions regarding rules, disciplinary actions, user bans, or even a thread move, please use the Customer Support Ticketing System or PM function of the board to contact us.

19. No discussion about competing MMORPG's (including other versions of PW) and other similar games on these boards.
Discussion of console, handheld, mobile & non-MMORPG PC games are allowed in the Off-Topic Forums only.

20. Post only in English.
We have to make sure that we can properly moderate and understand the topics being discussed in the various forums. So please, keep everything in English.

21. Graphical & Text Signatures.
If you choose to utilize the signature function (graphical & text) please keep it in good taste. All of the above mentioned rules also applies to your signature. To clarify, please be respectful and avoid any content that can be deemed as questionable (eg - violent, disturbing, obscene, sexual, racist, etc). Also prohibited are signatures with advertorial content. Exceptions to this rule may be made if related to business arrangements with PWE or for PWI Community Fansites. Admins of PWE reserve the right to remove or alter any signatures deemed inappropriate.

With friendly greetings,
The N0Fear Crew
