Forum and Discussion rules
Absolver Forum GuidelinesWhile these sites are the property of SloClap/Devolver Digital they are here for you, the community. In order to keep this a fun place for all, there are certain rules that must be followed. The rules apply to all methods of communication between community members i.e. forums, private messages, groups, e-mail, blogging, etc.
- I. These forums are for Absolver, and related topic discussion and are to be engaged in a pleasant and fun manner. These forums are run by SloClap and Devolver Digital for the promotion of our games and communicating to our customers and Community members. The topics and subjects discussed here should focus around Absolver in general and other related topics. These forums are not for discussing other topics such as politics, sex or adult topics, religion, etc. Topics or discussions may be closed at the discretion of staff and volunteer moderators.
- II. SloClap staff, Devolver Digital staff, official Moderators, or appointed agents reserve the right to edit or delete any content found on these sites and ban any offenders to the site rules without warning. By using this site you are accepting the Site Rules and agree to follow these rules.
- III. There is a zero tolerance policy on any form of abuse towards staff, moderators or other Community members. Content that is insulting to anyone based on gender, lifestyle, religion, ethnic group, race etc. is unacceptable and will be deleted without warning. Anyone posting a personal attack on staff, moderators or other Community members will, at the sole discretion of staff or moderators, be banned from the Absolver Community Forums (ACF) without notice and is no longer welcomed. In addition, do not post another member's personal information such as their email address, other website profiles, or other sensitive material without their permission. "Doxing" will not be tolerated.
- IV. Using these forums is a privilege, not a right. While we continue to value all of our customers and fans, participation in the ACF and engaging with staff and like-minded community members is - to be abundantly clear – a privilege, and not a right. Members may continue to discuss and critique our games and products in a civil manner, but any form of discussion targeted at an individual will not be tolerated. New and existing members who cannot adhere to the code of conduct, or maintain a civil demeanor at all times, are encouraged instead to contact customer support for any game related issues they may have.
- V. No Spam. Spamming can be defined as posting multiple times about the same thing, starting multiple topics about the same thing, posting off-topic posts in other people’s discussion threads or topics, or providing links that have nothing to do with the forum, topic or subject at hand, or taking existing discussions off of intended topic. Spam will be deleted without warning. Posting single images or animated .gifs instead of discussion is considered spam and is not wanted here. Posts may not contain secret codes or languages. What constitutes Spam is up to the discretion of staff and moderators. Forum “bumps” are considered a form of spam and are not allowed. This extends to "necro’ing" threads more than a month dead. Let the natural conversational flow of the community determine what should rise to the top and what should not.
- VI. Talking about your personal projects and successes is welcome and encouraged, selling things is NOT. Linking to sale sites is forbidden, suggesting that users contact you for sales is forbidden, discussing grey market prices is forbidden. Asking for money or donations is not allowed.
- VII. No posting single images or animated images. Posting single images or animated .gifs/images instead of engaging in discussion is not allowed. These are discussion forums and that means engaging in dialog, not picture spam. Using images to support your discussion is fine as long as the images used conform to the standard forum rules (no adult content, no slander, no racism, etc). Posting single images instead of discussion will be considered spam and will not be tolerated. Images will be deleted without warning. Posters may be banned for repeated offenses.
