CATEGORY SPECIFIC RULES AND REQUIREMENTS

Category use/purpose

A description of the intended purpose or use of a forum category can be found in the category description. Any topic that does not follow this can be moved, and even hidden or deleted. In case of users frequently posting in the wrong category, a verbal warning or even a warning point can be issued.

 

Category specific rules and requirements

Any category on the forum can have specific rules or requirements that only applies to that category. When this applies, information will be given in either the category description, above the category content or in a pinned topic in the category.

Subcategory have the same category specific rules and requirements as the parent category unless otherwise specified. For example, the ETS2MP bug reports category has the same rules as the general Bug report section.

When a category has a specified format, using this format is required unless otherwise specified. Formats are given in the same way as category specific rules.

 

Strict moderation

In a category with strict moderation, any off topic posts will be given a warning point, without verbal warnings prior.

This is to ensure the quality of the information found in certain sections.

These sections are identified with a [STRICT MODERATION] tag in the section description.

 

 

DISABLING USER ACCOUNTS

We do not allow complete deletion of user accounts - however we do offer to disable user accounts by permanently banning them. If you would like to request this, please contact a Community Manager or higher by email. Send the email to [email protected]

 

 

PUNISHMENTS

Punishments chosen:

  • Even though a ban is not a specified punishment, the user can be banned for breaking this rule depending on previous warnings and/or warning point given.
  • Which punishment is chosen depends on both previous punishments, warnings and the severity of each case.
  • Hiding and/or deleting the relevant post(s) is done for most rule violations.
  • In very severe cases, upper staff can decide to give harsher punishments than specified in these rules.

 

Server and forum bans:

  • Bans and punishments on the forum and on the game servers are separated as a general rule - a ban in game does not apply on the forum, and a ban on the forum does not apply in game.
  • In severe cases there can be exceptions, where a punishment carries over between the game servers and the forum. This can be decided by upper staff on a case by case basis.

Forum rules completely rewritten.

 

The rules have mostly stayed the same, though they should now be clarified better than before.

Changed the wording of a couple of rules, clarifying some aspects we enforce, but that wasn't visible enough in the rules.
