Rules, Guidelines & Tips For Creating Suggestions For World War Mode (Please Read Before Creating A New Thread!)


  • Senior Suggestion Moderator

qOQfwjm.png General Rules:


When submitting a suggestion, there are a few basic rules to comply with. By following them, you can easily get your point across and improve the overall structure of your suggestion:



1)  Anyone can submit a suggestion  - Nothing gets ignored or removed, so long as you follow the suggestions rules and be respectable. Everyone and anyone can submit a suggestion.


2)  Write your suggestion in English  - All suggestions and replies to suggestions must be written in English so everyone can understand you. If you're not that good with English, write to the best of your abilities and make it as understandable as possible.


3)  Clearly title your suggestion  - Having a title such as "Some suggestions" doesn't tell us, or anyone else, clearly what your idea is. Please aim to be as specific as possible.


4)  Include as much information as possible  - When making a suggestion, its best to explain your idea and show it to everyone. Stating that you would like "This" or "That" without justification or explanation doesn't really help anyone. Think of it like pitching an idea, you want to win people over, not make a statement. When suggesting vehicles - facts and figures are vital, performance data as well as some historical background info are invaluable.


5)  Pictures speak a thousand words  - When possible, always try to include images, especially for vehicles. Letting people see what you're talking about helps immensely. It also adds to presentation value.


6)  Stay opinion free  - Be constructive, try not to bring in opinionated views or rants.


7) Include a poll in your suggestion  - Having a poll as part of your suggestion allows fellow users to quickly and easily show support for your idea. Besides the obvious convenience for other users, it also provides a good general overview of the support your idea garners over time.



ZPje0i2.png Please Do NOT :


Naturally, there are also a few things you should try to avoid at all times. Those things are the following:


- Submit a new thread on an existing topic 

If someone before you has already submitted the same idea you have, please refrain from posting your version of the idea in a separate thread. Instead, use the existing thread to share your thoughts and opinions with others there. This way, we can avoid having several discussions on the same subject in multiple places. 


Submit a thread more than once

Threads have to be reviewed and approved. This takes time, so please don't double post a thread because you thought you didn't post it or it was removed. If a thread does not pass the approval process, it's up to the poster to contact the suggestion moderation team for further details. However, in case a thread is locked, the poster will be notified.


-  Create rants or demands

Suggestions are for constructive and beneficial ideas and additions, not for raging and ranting over existing content. Follow the suggestions rules and be constructive .  Any instance of ranting/raging will not be tolerated. 


Create one sentence threads

While we welcome everyone's input, please don't simply submit suggestions including "Please add the B-47" or "I would like to see the..". It's not much use and isn't really presentable to anyone. 


- Create suggestions regarding Battle Ratings, Ranking, Current Vehicle/Crew/Repair/Modification/Ammo Costs

All of these figures are carefully calculated by taking into account many different parameters. Should significant changes to these figures be made, developers usually ask for feedback in the respective official topic, share your ideas on these matters there.


Create polls that don't include a "Negative" or "No" answer

While polls offer a good and simple way for individuals to quickly express their stance on a subject, without having to elaborate it in detail, there are ways to manipulate polls to always show a desired result. To avoid having an unfair voting system, make sure to  always include a negative option to a question so that it's fair and unbiased. If this requirements isn't met, the thread author will be notified and the poll will be altered to provide a fair voting system.


Create poll-only topics

Every submitted idea should be open for evaluation by players by sharing their opinion on the subject. With poll-only topics, this cannot be achieved as users can only leave behind a vote. This vote may not reflect their entire opinion on the subject and does not provide any meaningful feedback on the suggested idea. Submitted poll-only topics will not be approved.


Create "bump" posts in existing suggestions

When replying to an existing suggestion, post only relevant content that is directly contributing to its discussion. Posting "bump", "up" or similar useless posts, with the sole intention of giving the thread more exposure by getting it to the first page, is considered as spam and is not allowed.

- Copy-Paste entire sections from 3rd party websites for use in your suggestion
While we welcome a copy-paste for things like vehicle specs, historical background etc., please do not simply copy-paste entire 3rd party pages (e.g. various wikis and encyclopedias) as this is not only seen as taking little interest in your own suggestion, but is also considered as plain plagiarism.


IMPORTANT: Any new suggestion thread that does not include the above points will not be approved.
