HUDS.TF

Hello There, Guest!

Forum Announcement: Forum Rules
Here at huds.tf, we offer the community a free place to be able to sign up to and discuss everything Team Fortress 2 HUD related, as well as all the other stuff you guys like to talk about. However, with this service, rules are required to keep the community friendly and welcoming.

Here's what we're saying:

1. Membership criteria
1.1. huds.tf operates under an open membership policy, using Steam OpenID. Membership on these forums is a privilege, not a right. huds.tf staff reserve the right to revoke membership at any time and for any reason.

1.2. Each member is granted one, and only one, account. If you are found to be using multiple accounts, you will be subject to immediate and permanent banning of all accounts involved. You can change your username once when joining the forums. The huds.tf staff will not change your username at any point if you have already changed your username. Failing to be able to change your username is not a valid excuse to join using another account.

2. What we expect of you
2.1. huds.tf is primarily a place to hold civil discussions about the development and editing of Custom Heads Up Displays (HUDs) in the video game Team Fortress 2. Discussions about Team Fortress 2, video games, the video game industry and video game-related material and other friendly discussion is allowed are fully welcomed and forums have been created to cater to such discussion. If the huds.tf staff find that a thread or poster violates any of the rules, the corresponding thread may be closed or deleted, and posters may be permanently or temporarily banned from the forums. Please keep in mind that there is no special dispensation granted on these forums; your post count or association with other posters does not protect you from being banned. Also, the issuing of bans can be instantaneous and without warning if the huds.tf staff feel the offence is grave enough.

2.2. By signing up to the huds.tf forums you confirm acceptance that you will not use the huds.tf forums to post any material which is knowingly false and/or defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, deemed as 'spam' or otherwise in violation of any law. Sexual, racial, or ethnic slurs will not be tolerated in any form and can see the offending member banned on the first offense if it is deemed necessary by the huds.tf staff. It is recommended that profanity be kept to a minimum as it does not promote civil conversation. We appreciate that the use of profanity is to be taken in context on occasion so warnings and/or bans are issued on a case by case basis. Foul language in the form of insults directed towards other members is not acceptable and may result in a ban.

2.3. A troll, as defined by Wikipedia, is internet slang for someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion. Negative commentary in topics is allowed, but such comments should be substantiated. No matter your supposed intent, if the huds.tf staff perceive you as a troll making unsubstantiated comments in an attempt to provoke the community, actions against you will be taken.

2.4. Images of a sexual or profane nature are frowned upon. Images presenting exposed genitalia, bared buttocks, or female nipple / aureole are not allowed. Outside of this, common sense and a "safe-for-work" rule should be followed. Also, spamming the forum with the same image is not allowed and is subject to banning.

2.5. The posting of topic related articles/media found on other websites is allowed, as long as credit is clearly given to the original source with a link to the source included.

2.6. The topics of emulation and piracy, including the technical nature of emulators and ROM images, hardware modification technology, as well as their effect on the industry as a topic are allowed. However, linking to pirate / emulation download sites or providing directions on how to get pirated / emulated software to work will result in the user in question being banned.

3. Moderation of posts / topics / members
3.1. Moderation of the huds.tf forums is not done by committee. All decisions with regards to thread closure and movement, permanent and temporary bans, and membership issues are made by the huds.tf staff and are final. Constructive criticisms and suggestions are welcome and should be sent to the huds.tf administrator.

3.2. Considering the real-time nature of the huds.tf forums, it is impossible for us to review messages as soon as they are posted. Any post submitted by you is your responsibility and is in no way reflective of the views held by the huds.tf staff. Any member who feels that a posted message is objectionable is encouraged to contact us immediately. We have the ability to remove objectionable messages and we will make every effort to do so within a reasonable time frame, if we determine that removal is necessary. This is a manual process, however, so please realize that there may be a delay before any action is taken.

3.3. The huds.tf staff reserve the right to edit or delete any message for any reason. You remain solely responsible for the content of your messages.

3.4. huds.tf operates on a “three strikes” rule. A warning is given for each occasion the huds.tf staff feel you have broken a rule. Warnings have no expiry date. Accruing three warnings will result in a ban. This ban can be for a limited time (i.e. you are banned for one week) at the discretion of the huds.tf staff but more serious offences or receiving warnings for the same rule break on three separate occasions will result in a permanent ban. If you receive a temporary ban, your account will be reactivated with two live warnings meaning that one more warning will result in a permanent ban. All warnings / bans you receive will be accompanied by notification of the reasons for it. If you are deemed to have committed a very serious offence, even if you have no warnings against you, you could be banned immediately.

3.5. The huds.tf staff reserve the right to reveal your identity (or whatever information we know about you), typically in, but not limited to, the event of a complaint or legal action arising from any message posted by you.

3.6. No posts should be made regarding your opinion of another user's actions or behavior. Any and all discussions regarding these matters should be discussed in private with the huds.tf staff via e-mail or Private Message.

3.7. Registration with the huds.tf forums is free. You agree to abide by the rules detailed above. Please be aware that these terms are subject to change at any time without notification.

That's the boring stuff out of the way then. Enjoy your time here at the huds.tf forums!
