FORUM RULES (MUST READ)

GAMEVIL USA welcomes you to our community forums! We love being able to provide a place for our players to gather and discuss the games they play! Our players mean everything to us and we enjoy hearing your opinions (good or bad) about the products we provide to you. This means providing a safe, constructive and pro-active environment for every player new to veteran to come and provide their feedback, and hopefully make some new friends in the process! Below we have detailed the forums Code of Conduct with the intent to inform our players of the rules and regulations of using and posting on these forums. We hope you enjoy these forums as much as we enjoying having them for you! Thank you!

GAMEVIL USA Forum Code of Conduct:

Disciplinary action for violating forum rules will typically take one of the following forms, depending on severity:

• Warning
• Temporary Ban
• Permanent Ban

1. We encourage our players to create fun and innovative forum names that can distinguish themselves to the rest of the forum community. When choosing a forum name please be mindful of the community and refrain from using any names that contain profanity, sexual language/actions, and impersonating GAMEVIL employees. This includes abbreviations, slang, and other bypasses. Inappropriate forum names will result in the account banned from the forums.

2. We will not tolerate rudeness, insulting posts, personal attacks, harassment, name & shame, or purposeless inflammatory posts. Any abuse towards our Community Managers, in any form, will not be tolerated. If behavior is deemed to be toxic, Community Managers may ban forum members without notice.

3. We will not tolerate inappropriate, sexual, vulgar, discriminatory or offensive language of any sort, this includes simulated, insinuated and abbreviated swearing. We ask that all posts pertain to our games and posts referring to illegal activities (drugs, pirating, crimes), Sexual activities and Terms of Service abuse such as hacking, account trading, and account selling will be removed from the forums and the poster could face ban from the forums. This policy also includes inappropriate or profane language that could offend players who read them. Community Managers have a final say on what is deemed inappropriate and there will be no chance for appeals.

4. GAMEVIL encourages players to be active on the forums and feel safe while doing so. This means that spamming another player on their thread or creating a thread to denigrate another player will not be tolerated. Any player found spamming, harassing or flaming another player on the forums will have the posts removed and could face a ban from the forums.

5. We understand that players may have strong feelings toward a specific subject. However please refrain from creating multiple threads of the same topic or discussions to overwhelm the forums. Bumping (repeated posting on a thread to keep it going or visible) is also not allowed. Players found in violation of this will have the threads deleted and may be subject to forum ban.

6. Advertising referral websites, phishing websites, or other malicious links is strictly prohibited. This also includes threads that contain links to non-GAMEVIL games. Any players found posting these types of threads will be banned from the forums.

7. Always post in the correct channel. Unrelated posts will be deleted or moved. Any groups created within the GAMEVIL forums must be pertaining to GAMEVIL or GAMEVIL titles. Any created groups found to be related to any other subjects will be deleted and the creator of said groups could face actions taken against their GAMEVIL forum account.

8. Players found to be posting unapproved, unannounced, or unofficial content based on speculation is subject to deletion, or temporary account suspension. Action taken is based on severity of infraction. This includes speculated future content notes taken from any other site that isn't GAMEVIL USA, unannounced coupon codes, or third party fan sites that may feature potentially leaked content.

9. Do not post or send any (disciplinary) actions taken by Community Managers or Moderators, such as banning, deleting posts, etc. Posting or sending private messages that are received from Community Managers or Moderators is prohibited.

10. GAMEVIL USA asks that players keep the length of their posts to a moderate length. Writing long threads can invite other players to harass the poster as well as incite arguments between players. Players creating extremely long threads will be reminded of this policy and further lengthy submissions could be removed as well as disciplinary action taken against the forum account.

11. GAMEVIL USA with help from moderators monitor the forums. For information on what our moderators do please follow this link: http://m.gamevilusa.com/forums/showthread.php?34449-Moderation

      The new layout out is really confusing. I liked it how it was before, really. Now I can't see the latest threads in each section... which is, annoying.

        When I'm on the main page, I can't see the names of the sub-forums (General, Off-topic, Noob intro, Announcements and all the iOS/Android games).
        I'm in the mobile version btw. Oh, and I have the same problem as Asch, the Full site link doesn't work.

          I don't think there is a mobile version. I clicked mobile on my iPad and the layout didn't change. When on my computer, I have the same layout that I have on my iPad.

                It's also displaying the full site on my iPad now, so I can see the newest posts in each section. I like the green and black / white Gamevil theme on the main page, but one problem currently is that the "Reply to Thread" / "Post New Thread" text that appears on the green buttons is really hard to read. The panel that starts with Welcome and Notifications seems slightly awkwardly placed. Another thing I noticed is that the calendar is still outdated, because it doesn't go up to 2013. The previously-broken Mark Forums Read function is now working, which makes things a lot easier for me compared to going through every forum and subforum to get rid of the check marks on the main page. There used to be the forum / subforum links at the top of the page like Gamevil Forums > Gamevil Notice to make it easier to navigate the site; I think that should be added again.

                I like how the moderation features can be accessed from both the top and bottom of the page; that makes things a little more convenient. But I also liked the check box above the posts that selected all the posts at once (I know it's in Inline Mod now, but it was a little faster before when deleting spambot posts). Also, is there a quick link to the Moderated / Deleted Threads and Posts on the user profile's main page, or do we have to go to Private Messages first?

                    I still dislike the new layout. The bolded threads thing was way better.

                    And now I don't know how to switch location on the forum. Once entering a thread, how do I go back?

                      When I was using the iTouch to drop by real quick this morning, I couldn't see the "latest post" column on the main page, but I can view it now, so...

                      Go to "Settings" on the top bar.

                      Currently, I'm just hitting the "Archive" down at the bottom right corner to navigate subforums.

                      It's good to see that the forums have finally been upgraded. ^_^

                      Earlier today (4AM ish) when the forums were down I went to the moderator control panel and it was vbulletin 5.0. Except I think version 5 is still in beta or didn't implement all of 4.2's functions. At least, 5.0's mod panel had no background at all, it looked kind of horrendous. 8D

                      One thing I really like about this update is the auto-save feature when typing posts. I'm sure many people here know how frustrating it is to type out a giant post, then lose it because of net issues or the forum cutting off part of the post. So that is a lovely feature and...

                      Well, I'm attempting to familiarize myself with the new forum before I give out more concrit. Square seems to have it covered for starters though. We've been using the old layout for so long that it's natural to be rather bewildered with the overhaul, but I think we'll all get used to it.

                      Generally inactive. If you have need to contact a moderator, please consult the list of active forum staff here, thank you.

                          I like the look and design of it, but i really miss the breadcrumbs to jump back to previous forum overview.
                          Can that be changed? There are only two buttons.. 'previous thread' and 'next thread', not really useful.

                            I noticed that sometimes, quotation marks in posts are replaced by question marks: (example).
                            I think it resulted from using quotation marks from an older version of MS Word instead of from the forum editor, but the forum displayed them normally before.
