Forum Rules [Updated 12/21/2016]

MAIN RULES OF THE FORUMS

Please respect your community. Respect each other as you all enjoy the same thing – The Game.

We encourage open and friendly discussion of the game and the Community. Moderators and Staff have final decisions on all matters, and are here to make sure that the Community remains a friendly, fun place appropriate for players of all backgrounds, ages and groups.

It is the forum member's responsibility to stay up to date on forum rules and to honor the behavior outlined.

PURPOSE OF THE FORUMS

These forums provide an area for constructive player discussions of the game. It also allows players to
help each other identify bugs and issues, and help each other reproduce and resolve them.

These forums are not the most direct way to contact support. If you’re having an issue with your game and you need direct assistance, please tap on the FAQ/Support tab within the game.

CHANGES OR IMPROVEMENT

Please make sure to stay updated on these rules by reviewing this page from time to time.

SET RULES

This is a private board. As such, decisions made are final.
We reserve the right to remove any message board content without notice for any reason.


Rule 1: Responses to rule violations
Violating these rules will result in warnings, either formal or informal, suspensions, banning, or other sanctions.

Rule 2: Respect other users on the forums
- Do not make attacks or insult other users, either in the forums or through private messages. Disagreements and debates are fine, but don’t make it personal.
- Do not attack groups. This includes professions, races, religions, sexual orientations, genders, incomes, or even vague groups like “you people.”
- Do not use ill terms which are offensive to groups, do not “flame”, “troll.” or “haze”.

Rule 3: Respect the forum purpose and structure
- Make your posts in the appropriate forum.
- Please use the Search function. If a relevant thread already exists, please post there instead of creating a new thread about the same topic. Duplicate threads will be closed to keep the forums orderly and easy to navigate.
- Keep off-topic posts in the off-topic forum.
- Don’t start discussions about games that are not ours.
- Do not cross-link to other message boards or websites unless approved by a moderator.

Rule 4: Respect the law
- Do not post anything illegal under U.S. law, or encourage other users to break the laws of the U.S. or their country of residence.
- Do not encourage users to break terms of service. This includes giving information about how to find scripts, exploits, or cheats, as well as arranging to buy or sell accounts or virtual goods.

Rule 5: Respect the audience
Think about who you're talking to. Users may be as young as 13 on these message boards, and may be male or female, and from countries across the globe.
- Keep your language civil. Profanity is frowned on.
- Do not post Adult Material, inappropriate graphic sexual content in any format, or links to sexually explicit sites.
- Do not post graphic images or explicit descriptions of violent acts.
- Do not use an avatar or signature that could offend other users. They have to look at it a lot.

Rule 6: Respect privacy
- Do not post any private emails or private messages unless you have the explicit permission of each person involved in the exchange.
- Do not post private communication between customer support, members, moderators, or administrators on these forums, or anywhere else. (This include support ticket responses)
- Do not post any information covered by a non-disclosure agreement or beta testing agreement. Even if you somehow have inside information about our competitors, for legal reasons we don’t want to hear it.
- Do not post Facebook information about other forum users.
- Do not post any private information about other users.
- Do not post in-game information in an attempt to have other players attack your target. Be careful to not cross the line into bullying.

Rule 7: Do not spam
- Do not post repeatedly about the same topic.
- Do not spam users on the forums or through private messages.
- Do not start a thread without actual purpose.
- Do not start a thread about a news story or article unless you make it clear what the story is about, and offer your own opinion to start a discussion.

Rule 8: Respect your account
- Do not share your account information with other individuals. You will be held responsible for any rules violations that occur under your account.
- Do not create new accounts or use other tricks to avoid suspensions or bans.
- Do not create ‘sock puppet’ accounts – multiple accounts created just so that you can agree with yourself and make it seem like your ideas have more support than they do.
- Never include your e-mail address or any other personal information in posts.

Rule 9: Respect the Moderators
- Do not post using the color red. This color is reserved for moderators.
- Do not impersonate moderators. Do not claim to speak for the moderators.

Rule 10: Respect the decisions of the moderators
- The moderation teams reserves the right to warn, suspend, or permanently ban users judged to be acting against the spirit of the rules, even if the user is following the letter of the rules.
- Do not argue with moderators about moderator decisions. You can disagree with a moderator’s opinions, just like any other poster, but when they post moderator actions in red text, it is considered final.
- Moderators have no access to your game account. If you have an issue you must contact customer service.

Generally, BE NICE. There is nothing wrong with being nice to each other.

    You're right, the devs do have a low profile here, and they have been made aware that we are aware of that fact. I believe Kori is trying to help remedy that somewhat tho.

    Unfortunately, the Devs aren't going to hang around in the forum all day tho waiting to hear everyone's problems with the games and honestly we probably don't want them to. If they are here, then they can't be making updates to the games that I (and others) enjoy.

    I have seen and found that if newcomers do come here with a question/problem and post in the correct area in a non-threatening, non-hostile, pleasant way then those here tend to help them more often than not. However, if they haven't attempted to find the answer in the forums (using the nice search feature) and there are already a dozen threads already started on "their" problem, you can see why those in the forum would start to exhibit a not so pleasant attitude toward them.

    If say the devs use the news area in the games to update the players with reference to links in the forum then maybe, just maybe people will start changing their mind about the forum. Which is a better start than having so many people disgruntled.
    Oh no, I'm not suggesting the devs go all Big Brother waiting to pounce. Just the basics. Any major event, devs viewpoint is known either immediately or almost immediately. Atm we have -some- announcements of game events, and the occasional forum crisis post when unrest starts reaching fever pitch. If it's REALLY bad they'll news post as well, but in both of those cases it's far too late. Even as simple as that would have reduced the number of armours we see drastically. But like you said, our words have been put forward and we can only see what happens next.

    Relative outsiders and angry responses....we saw a case of tonight. Because frustration was perceived as attack, the claws came out on both sides and a long exchange was only just cut short. That's not a CA forum thing, that's any kind of specialist or even community thing. If I went around any community or group harbouring ill-will it probably wouldn't be long before they set on me, and specialists are even more touchy due to the fact the masses already malign them for (allegedly) taking themselves too seriously. They see the 'attack' and.....boom. Preaching to the converted somewhat here though, we both already know this - the problem is entrenching it into the community culture. Personally, I do think you're right - good dev experiences would probably change a lot in that regard.

      26 out 30 for proper context, good time to post this after the last few days
      10 out of 10 for condemantion, I felt your final closing sentence was very strong and should sting some people.

      Overall I am going with a 88% and B+.

        That wasn't in your first post, though. You stated originally that you just wouldn't believe anyone who doesn't fit into your theory.

        And of course, just because they've played the game for more than a month, doesn't mean that you can guarantee they've visited the forum. That's a broad generalisation, and generalisations aren't specific, as they don't apply to everyone.

        If you were to say 'most people would have visited the forums' instead, that would be very different.

          -visits- I broke into two of your 5 windows . The other 3 windows decided to punch me out and stole my chowmein .

            Yea, im not *quite* perfect, and I could probably have not alienated some folks by saying "the excuse is that not everyone KNOWS about the forum" instead of "not everyone reads the forum". That is the true wording of the posts I was referring to. Read it like that and you have closer to my original intent. And for the second part, you are right, and I retracted that sentiment later in the thread. That was getting a bit too specific for a general statement, and it does not hold up to scrutiny. I guess I lost a bit of credibility with that one. My professor would have hit me on that immediately.

              Post something somewhere and hope you can find it again once those darn mods move it!

              EDIT: I had it set for threads. I could have told it search for posts. Sorry, but I think since the captcha has been removed the search works pretty decent. I generally dont have much trouble finding stuff here now. I used to run from it
              Used to be one of the perks of being a mod: no Captcha!

Oh! and for Monster Hunters like myself, I can shake a magic 8 ball and find better information on monsters than I could on this forum, so it has nothing to do with the monster hunters not having thick enough skin, as to why you most likely will not be seeing a mass influx of new membership from them, but because for monster hunters we can find better info else where. Basically to me there is a need for this forum, and for people in my groups that may be looking for more Army members, this is where I'd send them, however if they want information on anything else, to be honest with you this is the last place I'd send anyone, because I know how they'll most likely get treated.
              You may want to consider this thread and the resulting spreadsheets:
              http://castleageforums.com/cforum/sh...ad.php?t=33159
              Probably the best source of monster info anywhere in CA.

                Not going to argue with that. ALOT of my guild members are happy that spreadsheet are out, all players from all building styles.

                  I'll admit that if someone knows about the forum, they've probably visited. I just couldn't say everyone has, as I'm sure that some haven't, even if they know the forums are here. Although, there is an actual forum link at the top of the game, so I think it would be difficult to miss knowing that there are forums here. Having said that, I don't know why someone wouldn't have visited out of curiosity.

                  And for the second part, you are right, and I retracted that sentiment later in the thread.

                  But it's a long thread, I didn't get that far in.

                    I'm one of those older people (I'm in my 50's), and probably not the most technically gifted person when it comes to computers, shoot I was a big hold out on even getting one up until about 5 years ago. Anyhow, I have seen that spreadsheet, and for me I don't really care for it, I prefer individual monster strategy guides like you would find on Castle Age wikia for example, I've even seen some really good strategy guides posted by people on facebook, so for me those are the types of places I prefer too look for castle age information,and it's places like that that I typically refer people to, because for me it's much easier to find what I'm looking for, but that's just me.

                      True, but the spreadsheet shows you how much activity/damage you need to do on each monster to ensure 1,2,3 epics and/or legendary drop. That is what everyone is after, what is the minimum damage for those.

                        So do most of the strategy guides on Castle age wikia, at least a lot of the newer monsters show that.

                            I looked through your post history, and I'd like to apologize for trolling your thread

Don't read anything into what I'm suggesting that isn't there, when offensive battles where up, and you could have more than one on the board, collection time was 24 hours, where as now you have to wait 9 hours to have another auto battle, that is too much time to have to wait to battle again. Think of it this way, you call a battle at 6:00 am, usually when normal people are getting up to go to work, and say it goes the full 5 hours, you wouldn't be able to call another one until 8:00 pm, now say that one goes 5 hours, it wouldn't end until 1:00 am well after normal people have gone to bed, and since those people wouldn't be be up for the whole battle they may not bother to even join, so they either need to allow more auto battles to be called, allow offensive/defensive battles again, or keep the collection time as is or make it 24 hours, but allow you to initiate a new battle sooner than 9 hours, because the 9 hour timer with only 1 auto battle allowed at one time only allows 2 battles per day, and there needs to be more.

                              Those strategy guides are probably based upon the spreadsheet figures...
