Although the administrators and moderators of joinDOTA Forums will attempt to keep all objectionable
messages off this site, it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages express the views of
the author, and neither the owners of joinDOTA Forums, nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of vBulletin)
will be held responsible for the content of any message.
We here at joinDOTA want you all to have a great time, and also want to have a great time with you. In order for that to happen, we have to ask you to read the following rules carefully and abide by them.
These things are forbidden:
- Insult other members or demographics
- Use this forum as an advertisement platform
- Spam threads with unsubstantial posts
- Beg for Betakeys
- Trade or sell betakeys
- Backseat moderate, as this is considered spam
- Practise racism, homphobia, elitism and other forms of being severely uncool
- Violate the law (i.e. with talk about piracy)
- Post in non-english language
If you do these things, and we catch you doing it, moderators will give you an infraction. If you have three infractions, you will automatically be banned for a month.
Here's some things we ask you to do:
- Treat other members with respect
- Always be polite and make well thought-through posts
- Employ the Search function before you create a new topic
- Read threads fully before you post in them and engage in ongoing discussions rather than blindly repeating it
- Try to help your fellow community members out with your own knowledge and by directing them to the right threads/page sections
There is a report function which allows you to report posts to the moderators. This helps us keep the forum clean and we encourage you strongly to use it. However, if you abuse this function, by constantly reporting posts that don't violate any forum rules, because you personally don't like them or you're just bored, you will also receive an infraction.
