    Welcome to the RageRaid Forums!

    These forums are here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss ideas, give game play advice, role-play, and converse about any other aspects of RageRaid with other players. Community forums are at their best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. There, we ask that you conduct yourself in a civilized manner when participating in these forums.

    The guidelines and rules listed below explain what behaviour is expected of you and what behaviour you can expect from other community members. Note that the following guidelines are not exhaustive, and may not address all manner of offensive behaviour. As such, the forum moderators shall have full discretion to address any behaviour that they feel is inappropriate. Also, mutes or bans from the game will always result in this same in regard to forum access. Your access to these forum is a 'privilege', and not a 'right'. RageRaid reserves the right to suspend your access to these forums at any time for reasons that include, but are not necessarily limited to, your failure to abide by these guidelines.

    We reserve the right to evaluate each incident on a case by case basis. The action we take may be more lenient or more severe than those listed under each category:

    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be temporarily banned from the forums
    Be given a final warning, after which any further violations may result in a permanent ban from the forums.



    Extreme Sexuality / Violence

    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    Refer to extreme and/or violent sexual acts
    Refer to extremely violent real life actions
    Pornography

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be permanently banned from the forums



    Real-Life Threats

    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:


    Refer to violence in any capacity that is not directly related to the game

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be temporarily banned from the forums
    Be given a final warning, after which any further violations may result in a permanent ban from the forums



    Distribution of Real-Life Personal Information

    This category includes:

    Releasing any real-life information about other players or RageRaid staff team

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be permanently banned from the forums




    Sexual Orientation

    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    Insultingly refer to any aspect of sexual orientation pertaining to themselves or other players

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be temporarily banned from the forums
    Be given a final warning, after which any further violations may result in a permanent ban from the forum.




    Posting Cheats, Hacks, Trojan Horses or Malicious Programs

    This category includes:

    Posting links to cheats, hacks, or malicious viruses / programs
    If you would like to report information regarding cheats to RageRaid , send it to
    support@rageraid.org
    Do not post it to the forums.

    Be permanently banned from the forums



    Impersonating a RageRaid Staff member

    This category includes:

    Passing yourself off as a RageRaid Staff member to post false information

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be given a final warning, after which any further violations may result in a permanent ban from the forums



    Obscene / Vulgar

    This category includes both clear and masked language in posts, signatures, and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    Are an inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
    Are pornographic in nature

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity
    While these repercussions may seem harsh, we feel very strongly that this behavior has no place on the forums due to its extremely offensive and inappropriate nature.



    Inappropriate Language

    This category includes language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:


    Are a mildly inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
    Are otherwise considered objectionable
    Bypass the Mature Language filter


    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity



    Harassing or Defamatory

    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    Insultingly refer to other characters, players, RageRaid Staff, or groups of people
    Result in ongoing harassment to other characters, players, RageRaid Staff, or groups of people

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity
    Harassment takes many forms, and is not necessarily limited to the type of language used, but the intent. Repeatedly targeting a specific player with harassment can lead to more severe action. The idea behind this is to prevent any one player from consistently being uncomfortable in the forums.



    Major Religions or Religious Figures


    This category includes both clear and masked language and/or links to websites containing such language or images which:

    Negatively portray major religions or religious figures

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be given a temporary ban from the forums, depending upon severity

    support@rageraid.org



    Circumventing a Suspension / Ban

    This category includes:

    Posting on another account
    Having someone post on your behalf

    If a player is found to have participated in such actions, he/she will:

    Be permanently banned from posting on the forums



    Staff Decisions

    Decisions formed by Staff members are final, requiring no disputes following the statement regarding it. This includes Application denial, user reports, etc.

    The bottom line is that we want RageRaid to be a fun and safe environment for all players. While playing RageRaid and posting on its forums, you will encounter thousands of other players who share different experiences and come from vastly different backgrounds. While certain language and images may not be offensive to you, consider the fact that that same language and images may have a completely different effect on someone else. We’ve done everything we can to make this a great environment – now it’s up to you!
