Forum Rules
« on: March 28, 2015, 01:19:17 pm »
Introduction

L4DNation is the largest forum dedicated to competitive L4D discussion. We try our best to make it a welcoming community for players, coders, config makers, casters, and spectators to come to talk about the game and community they love. However, posting on L4DNation is a privilege, not a right. We expect our users to be respectful of one another and their viewpoints.

Arguments and debates are to be expected, but at the end of the day we want L4DNation to be a safe place for people to come and discuss. The staff at L4DNation will not hesitate to ban or remove privileges when posts cross the line from heated discussion into personal attacks.

Should I post this?

If you're about to make a post that you think might be crossing the line, take a step back and re-read what you've written.

  • If your post aggrandizes yourself at the expense of others...
  • If your post insults, demeans, or mocks other people...
  • If your post responds to and extends stupid, pointless, or toxic conversation even if directed specifically at you...
  • If your post fails to contribute to the discussion in a positive way...
  • If you aren't sure that your post does not fall outside of these bounds...

then DO NOT POST.

A good post can express your viewpoint without encroaching on the rights of others. If you're worried about your viewpoint opening you up to attacks from other users, feel free to seek the help of a moderator (ProdigySim, fig newtons, Visor) to try to address those concerns.


Addendum
We've been a pretty easygoing community for a good amount of time, and we're still going to be that. Adding a set of rules is a change that's probably something we should have done a long time ago. It's mostly just a move to sort of formalize things to help let people know where we stand.

Feel free to provide feedback on the rules privately or on the Site Feedback forum--we're always open to hear from you guys.
