  3. Legibility of Posts
    Posts should be written in a way, that everyone can understand easily. This is including a legible style - with punctuation marks and so on - and also a comprehensible speech. Codes, unusual abbreviations, dialects and board-foreign languages should be avoided as far as possible.
    You should read each of your Posts again carefully, before you make it public, to ensure its legible and understandable quality!

    Any kind of commercial advertising as well as advertisements not related to the forum themes are not allowed. We won't do support for any game which isn't directly from or related to Deep Silver. Infringements will be punished according to their degree.


  8. Glorification of violence
    Spreading, linking and embedding of advocated violence is not allowed. You will be excluded from the messageboard by the administrators if you don't comply to this rule.


  9. Posting in the correct forum
    The Deep Silver Community features a number of different forums. Each forum has a purpose and we expect you to post the topics in the right forums. If you happen to place a post in a wrong forum, a moderator or administrator will move the post accordingly.


  10. No individual welcome-threads
    Please use this thread to introduce yourself to the Deep Silver Community. Chaos would commence if every user start his/her own "hello world"-topic. All individual "hello world"-threads are going to be deleted by the boardteam without prior warning.


  11. Searching
    This messageboard has an excellent search function. Please use this tool to look for topics that might answer your question, before you start a new thread on your own. The chances are high that a person had a similar question before. The advantages are a) you might get a faster answer and b) this will also avoid that the same questions are asked over and over again.


  12. Avoiding post with similar topics
    Please refrain from posting the same topic over and over again. Just use the search function and you might find a thread which already covers your topic.


  13. Avoiding cross- and multi-postings
    The creation of multiple thread with the same question/request/comment in one or several forums is a big no-no on our messageboard. Only the quality of the post determines if you get attention or not. Besides, if there is no one who knows an answer to your problem, there is no reason to keep the post on the most important slots.


  14. Avoiding nonsense posts
    Nonsense posts are not welcome here. That also applies to so called Smiley-Posts which consist of only a smiley or one-two words. We don't count the amount of posts you gathered, therefore is no need to spam or bump topics back to the top. Those messages are going to be deleted by the boardteam without warning or notification!


  15. Forum-Trolls
    Trolls won't be happy in our community since we don't condone their existance. This messageboard may not be used as a showstage for self-adulation. Users which are constantly disrupting discussions with flameposts will be dealt with, and may even be excluded from the community.


  16. Choosing meaningful captions
    Captions, that are supposed to lure the visitor to read the post, and may lead him to a complete different subject are not allowed. The same rule applies to extreme capitalisation (CAPS & SHOUTING) in subject lines.


  17. Avatars
    All custom avatars must comply to these specifications:
    Your custom avatar may not exceed 100x100 Px (height&width) or 80kB (filesize). The use of animated avatars is forbidden, since they distract too much from the text, and this is what this messageboard is all about. You may be excluded from the community if you don't follow this rule. Animated Avatars will be deleted without notification!


  18. Signatures incl. picture/banner
    All signatures must comply to these specifications:
    The whole signature may not exceed 110x640 Px (height&width) as well as 100kB (filesize). The use of animated signatures is forbidden. Animated Signatures will be deleted without notification!


  19. Pictures in postings
    All posts with pictures must comply to these specifications:
    A maximum of 5 pictures per post in JPEG, JPG, GIF, PNG format. The pictures may not exceed 800x600 Px (width&height) or 1MB (filesize). If you got bigger pictures please do not embed them into the post, but supply a link to the picture, so that the users may decide for themselves if the download of the picture is needed. As always, please keep in mind that many people don't have access to a broadband internet connection, and keep your files as small as possible.


  20. Account Violations
    We're very ambitious to keep everything fair and clean on this forum. To ensure that polls and sweepstakes are completely fair, only ONE account per user is permitted! We will check the database frequently via some software for people with two or more accounts so be warned, don't try it! If you are suspected to have more than one account, you will be contacted by an admin about the possible account violation and you will get the chance to state your case. Please be aware that you might also be banned from this community if you're using more than one account. If a second account is detected, it will also get "frozen" by the board software until the matter is sorted out.


  21. No sales and other disposals
    It is not allowed to search for or offer products for payment of any kind. This applies indepedently to the fact whether the product is published by DeepSilver/KochMedia or not.
    For example: The offering of used games for real money or game-money.
    Excluded from this rule are favours from and for the community, as long as they are not payed with real money. (like skins, avatars, banner and so on)


  22. Exception to the rule
    There may be exceptions to the rules posted above, but only the boardteam may decide on a case to case basis, if an exception is the right way to go! If there is the need to "bend" one rule, we got a damn good reason to do so.
