The condensed version, for those that aren't Monty Python fans.
1. Post with respect and courtesy. Debate is fine ... so long as when you disagree with someone, you respond in a civilized and constructive manner.
2. No slander. Don't come here and slam/flame anyone/thing. Don't come here sounding off that Vanguard sucks, Blizz sucks, EQ sucks, mod_author_01 sucks, etc and so on. None of that. You want to post things like that, take it elsewhere, there are enough other boards that cater to that type of thing. This isn't FlameVault. See 1.
3. Don't spam. If you have something to discuss, a question to ask, advice to give, that's fine. The occasional silly post/joke/whatever in Chit Chat forum is fine. (Example - my post directly above this.
) But posting random crap for no reason other than to post random crap ... just don't do it.
4. Don't break Vanguard EULA or ToS. If you come here and post something that breaks Vanguard EULA or ToS, your post will be deleted and you will (at minimum) warned not to do it again. Repeated offenses will lead to banning from the site.
