Exclamation Posting guidelines [Read before posting]

Welcome to the forums

These rules are here to help you out while you are staying at these forums. They are used on all sections of so getting used to them is a thing you must do. If you have any question about any of these rules or maybe one thats not posted, feel free to PM the mod staff. We will be happy to help you out.

The Rules

1. Don´t flame other members
There are lot of people visiting these forums and your way of thinking can be different from someone else but that doesnt give you the right to flame/insult them.

2. Don´t spam
.1 Spam are posts that have nothing to do with the topic or are one sentence posts like "I agree",... Bare in mind that a topic often doesnt stay 100% on topic and that we are aware of that. In most sections this rule has to followed very closely, however, in Absent without a leave, the off-topic section a little more freedom is served. Note, it clearly states off-topic and not NO-topic.

.2 Also chatting with other users, like having a private conversation amongst eachother, is considered as spam. Use the Private Message feature for such things.

.3 The Staff reserves the right to delete or close spammy posts and threads at their discretion.

3. Posting threads
.1 Before you go posting a new thread have a good look if a similar isnt already existing. There is a search option to be even more sure of that.
Also dont create a thread similar as one that was closed. It doesnt make you look that good. Same goes for bumping very old threads.

.2 Try to make a good thread with a clear title so everyone will have a good insight on what your topic will be about. Also when posting try to use a good understandable language. We know we aren´t all from an English country. Hell, I´m not not even from one but trying just might give you that extra credit towards others.

.3 You are responsible for your own posts. In the rare event that we receive a complaint/legal action from something you've posted, we reserve the right to forfeit any information we know about you, including your identity, IP address, etc.

.4 Do not, and I repeat DO NOT, post any threads dealing with illegal or disturbing matters. This means pornography, discussion about downloading or copying software,... is strictly prohibited.

.5 Keep in mind that a thread needs to be created in the right section.
Reporting for Duty is the place for all discussion and news about RC, while Absent Without Leave is the place for a more freely off-topic conversation.

Design Schematics is the place to go for everything that has to with modding, editing,... the game. Squad Recruitment will be open for all clan discussion while tactics, walktroughs, strategy,... go in the Tactical Operations.

Last but not least, for all your questions, feedback,... about the site or forum you are welcomed in the Debriefing Station where we again will be happy to help you out in any way we can.

4. Use the spoiler tag
A spoiler isnt the info about the game published on the official website, its more or less everything concerning the storyline or game ending.

Also since Republic Command is INTIMATELY linked with the prequel films, specifically Episode III, this means that spoilers in the game are also spoilers for the movie.

Keep in mind the game will be out BEFORE anyone has a chance to see the movie, and many of us want to remain spoiler free for Episode III.

If you are to create a thread with (a) spoiler(s) follow these guidelines:
- Put *spoiler* in your thread title
- Dont put the actual spoiler in the thread title
- Use the spoiler tag (important) in the thread

How to use a spoiler tag?
Just put the text that are spoilers between this code
PHP Code:
[spoilerPut your text here [/spoiler
It can then be seen when you highlight the area with the mouse.
Put your text here


.1 Penalties for spamming, cussing, and flaming:
First, the person will receive a public warning in the thread in which the offense occurred.
If the person does not comply, he/she will be given a final warning via private message.
If the person keeps flaming/cussing/spamming, he/she will be banned.
Spamming may also result in the reduction of the user's post count(to 0).

.2 Penalties concerning illegal/disturbing activities:
If the person posted links to, or discusses ROM sites and/or warez/kazaa sites, the post will be edited and the person will be warned. If the person does it again, it's a temporary ban. Best advice is to not talk about it at all here.

If it's about posting pornography, the user will be banned without warning. We have a zero tolerance policy about anything that deals with porn in any way. Best advice: Take it somewhere else.

.3 Penalties for registering another account under the same IP:
The person be warned, and the extra account(s) will be immediately deleted. If the person recidivates, his/her IP will be banned from the community.

Additional guidelines

If you don't have interest in a certain thread, move along to another one you do like. There is no need to waste your time by posting in them just to post.

If you witness someone breaking these rules, please help us mods out and use the 'report post to moderator' link. Now this isn't for just saying hi or whatever. It is to be used to report those breaking our rules ONLY.

The staff doesn´t like to be harassed, hassled, cajoled, or threatened. In addition...don't ask to be a moderator.

Please keep in mind these rules are not here to make us look big, they are here to make this place an enjoyable environment which brings us to the most important rule: "Have fun while you´re here but dont be stupid."

These rules are approved by the staff and based on the rules provided by the Starwarsknights, Battlefront, Jedi Knight and StarwarsGalaxies community. In addition altered by Pad to be used on the forums.
