Welcome: Posting Guidelines

Recommended Posts

Greetings Defenders,

Our expansion, Power of the Ancients is right around the corner. As a game and studio we are constantly evolving, and are trying to provide the best experience for our players and community both in-game and out. To not only keep the forums as a place to share with one another and provide great feedback, we want to make sure it only gets better as our community grows. This means we are updating our guidelines slightly to maintain a constructive, welcoming, and awesome atmosphere. The previous guidelines can be seen here. Let’s take a look!

Posting Guidelines Update

  1. Courtesy and Respect - Our game is full of a wide variety of people with various backgrounds. There is zero tolerance for insults directed towards sex, sexual orientation, race, spiritual background, disabilities, language barriers, handicaps, preferred platform, skill level, or anything used as an attempt to degrade another user.

    1. Users - Harassing or bullying other users will not be tolerated. This is a place for people to share their experience in-game, and come together as a community. Disagreeing or not liking a particular user does not turn the forums into a platform for the aforementioned.

    2. Dev Bashing - As developers in an ever-changing game, we are susceptible to making mistakes. We’re people, just like you, making a game that we hope you enjoy. Sometimes things don’t turn out how you may particularly like it, sometimes we overlook something. We see every post, and constantly encourage constructive criticism. The majority of the changes we make to the game are based off this feedback, and we’re thankful for your support in making the game better wherever we can. That said, we’re human, and prefer to be treated as such, so insults and talking-down will not be tolerated and promptly removed.

  2. Posting Standards - We want the forums to be a social hub where people feel welcomed and come to converse or inform one another. You all do a great job of helping others when asked, or informing them of ways they could improve if they are running into a wall they can’t quite get over. They are active discussions, and they are wonderful to see within the community. To have the forums continue to be a welcoming platform, moderators will remove posts that are: rants/rage-based, complaints (not feedback), misleading titles, advertisements, spam, discussing closed/removed threads/posts, or any other inappropriate material.

  3. Privacy - Posting real life information of yourself or another user will be removed. Personal information will be removed regardless of the format it is provided in, and focuses primarily around name, address, e-mail, account information, IP addresses, or any other identifying info.

  4. Game Data Leaks - Within our ToS we discuss that you should not be datamining any information, along with sharing protected information. If we see this information posted, we will remove it without discretion. Things change with a live game, and we want to avoid misinformation or specific expectations being set that would not be met.

  5. NSFW material - This is anything that includes gore, pornographic, or otherwise adult in nature or offensive content.

  6. Trolling - Baiting users and belittling one another will not be tolerated.

  7. Anything skirting the line as inappropriate behavior under the discretion of CG or Moderators.

If there is a failure to meet these guidelines (as well as our rules and guidelines posted here), we will at minimum execute the following:

  • First Offense - Private Message Warning

  • Second Offense - Two Week Suspension

  • Third Offense - Permanent Suspension

The first two offenses will fall off after a year from when they were initially issued. The moderation team will be able to track this information easily, so if you receive a warning and want to inquire about them, reach out to us. You will be notified of any warnings/suspensions.

Sometimes we may not be the first to see something that may be against our guidelines. If you happen to see anything that concerns you, feel free to reach out to me or any of our moderators:

These changes will not apply to the vast majority of our community, because you all tend to be pretty amazing and know how to present yourselves as such. We’re just making sure that we can continue to cultivate a growing community where people like you will feel welcomed and enjoy their time here.

Stay awesome, Defenders!

The Dungeon Defenders II Team
