In the case of continuous breaking forum rules by the user, this measure will have no place and will be replaced by "Rule Breaking Warning".

 

  • "Rule Breaking Warning"  - in the case when a user is knowingly and intentionally violating the Forum Rules. User post will be marked with a red note indicating which rule was broken, and a warning with penalty points will appear on User's warning list.

Moderator Communication Guidelines

 

In an effort to increase transparency regarding the moderation of the forums, we decided to post the internal guidelines that our Moderators adhere to. If any of our members have any questions or concerns regarding this guidelines, feel free to PM any member of the Senior Staff.

  • Minor incivility is not productive and should be avoided at all times: "I don't think we should take this player seriously, because X and Y", "This is nonsense", etc. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and comments such as those simply open the door for more incendiary reprisals and do not provide a discussion with any sensible direction.
  • Be RESPECTFUL even if you're not being RESPECTED. It can get a little heated around here, but cooler heads lead to cooler conversations and better decisions.
  • Keep your cool, try and avoid taking it personally, if you are finding yourself getting emotionally involved and/or bullied  then ask one of the other members of the team to step in and monitor the discussion. Remember that in most cases, an emotional user’s reaction is not aimed against you, but to express discontent with a game decision.
  • Unsure of how to respond to a situation? Message your peers and bounce their ideas off of yours. We all have the potential to make mistakes, but this is limited when a group consensus is formed. You may discover something that you didn't consider before.
  • Treat others in the manner you would wish to be treated, fairly and Justly. Remember we have a wide audience from all different age groups and cultural backgrounds.
  • What you do reflects on the rest of the team and Gaijin, you are seen as an official voice which can lead to either productive discussions or incendiary ones, depending on how you present yourself. Ask yourself if your action could have negative consequences for the community and if the answer is yes, you should probably not do it.
  • [Forum & Live only] When issuing warnings, or mitigating a situation between two members, always strive for the least punishing response. A verbal warning is always better than a moderation queue or a suspension, in anything but the most extreme circumstances. Escalation should only occur when a member chooses not to heed the first 2-3 verbal warnings we issue. Keep in mind the nature of the infraction. Someone just trolling for a bit of fun is not equal to someone posting an image of someone being violently assaulted or killed, for example.

Game Rules Amended - Changes indicated in red.

As whole Game rules were redesigned, only categories were marked red for easier reading instead of whole text.
