Global Rule 3

3. Keep discussion within the subject of the topic (stay on-topic). If you want to change the subject, create a new topic.

  • 3.1 Do not call out users for improper DevForum use on topics, as this is off-topic. Instead, flag their post for the Developer Engagement Team to handle.

Global Rule 6

6. The private sections of the forum are mature enough for occasional swear words for emphasis. That said, do not direct swear words at other members or use sexual/extreme language.

Global Rule 7

7. Spam replies and topics will be removed. Do not post the same topic repetitively or repeat the same post within a topic. Spam includes posts like “bump” or “first” that do not add to the content of the discussion.

  • 7.1 Do not create topics asking how much you should sell or buy assets for; these will be considered spam.
  • 7.2 Do not create topics asking users to rate your assets. Asking for feedback is fine, but asking for a rating (e.g. X out of 10) will be considered spam.

Global Rule 8

8. Do not make posts regarding Developer Forum moderation. If you disagree with moderation actions on the forum, discuss it in private with the moderators.

  • 8.1 Do not reply aggressively to moderation or feedback messages. If you want to discuss a moderation action or feedback message that you’ve received, you are expected to do so in a civil manner. Inappropriate, derogatory, or offensive replies to these messages will result in punishment.
  • 8.2 Do not abuse the Flag system to maliciously hide posts.
  • 8.3 Do not create artificial forum activity, such as using alternate accounts to like your own posts.

Global Rule 12

12. Our community is gauged for Developers aged 13 years and older. Therefore there should not be any references to illicit or extreme content anywhere on the Developer Forum. This includes (but is not limited to) adult content and use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.

  • 12.1. You may not post NSFW/adult content on the Developer Forum. Intentionality is a factor - anything that is borderline or questionably NSFW will be considered unintentional, whereas any post that is very clearly NSFW will be considered intentional. The punishments for both differ, as you can see in the Broken Rules Matrix.

Global Rule 13

13. You are not permitted to accept any kind of payment for using the Developer Forum by proxy. This includes creating topics or replies for another user. Additionally, you may not sell access to features you obtain through membership, such as Beta User features available to those in the Developer Forum. Engaging in these activities will result in immediate removal from the Developer Forum.

  • 13.1 You may make topics in the Bulletin Board section for other people, provided you are not doing so in exchange for money or anything else.

  • 13.2 You may not make any other type of topic for other people.
