--=Bungie.net Rules=-- Welcome to the Bungie.net forums! First off, the entire site is governed by the [url=http://www.bungie.net/help/code_of_conduct.aspx] [u]Code of Conduct[/u][/url] and the [url=http://www.bungie.net/help/terms_of_use.aspx][u]Terms of Use.[/u][/url] Be sure to read them and abide by them at all costs. <[b]The Rules[/b]> [quote][/quote] [*]Spamming should not even be contemplated! [*]Do [b]not[/b] reply to spam in anyway shape or form. Regardless of what response you leave you will be blacklisted! Do not respond with “lol locked” “forum cops r comin!” or anything of that nature. This is your only warning. [*] Do not link to inappropriate websites. This includes, but is not limited to, sites containing adult content,information on any type of software piracy or shock sites. This will get you [b]permanently[/b] banned. [*]Impersonating forum moderators and/or bungie employees is strictly prohibited. Do not break this rule. You will be permanently banned. Also, do not “forum cop”! [*]No political or religious discussion of any kind will be tolerated on the forums. These kinds of conversations almost always devolve into insult contests. Use groups like [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/politic/GroupHome.aspxHYPERLINK "http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/politic/GroupHome.aspx%5DBody" ][u] Body Politic[/u][/url] or [url=http://www.bungie.net/fanclub/black/GroupHome.aspx][u]The Black Chapter[/u][/url] for such topics if you wish to discuss them. [*] Xbox hacking/modding discussions will not be permitted on any of the Bungie.net forums. [*] Do [b]not[/b] ask for trial cards for Xbox Live. [*] Do not troll the forums. [*][url=http://texasholdemblogger.files.wordpress.com/2007/10/do-not-feed-the-trolls.jpg]Do not feed the trolls. [/url] [*] Don't bypass the -blam!- filter (that is the profanity filter for those who have not seen it in action). [*] No quote pyramids (That's five or more posts quoted). [*] No petitions. [*] Do not link to ‘brain stealing’ text games or any other text games of any sort. If you have such a link put it in your signature, [b]remove them[/b]. [*]Do not advertise your screen shots, gallery or movies. [*] Do [b]not[/b] Flame each other! Use your manners and common sense. If you disagree with someone, do so gracefully. Additionally do not link to websites such as youfail.org or any other website pertaining to it in identical nature. It will be treated like spam and dealt with accordingly. [*] Bumping is illegal. Breaking this law has high consequences. Such as but not limited to: assignation by ninja, hippo licking, and/or complete forum thread annihilation. Or we will most likely just lock your topic. Don't bump! [*] Advertisements for your Group, Clan, or Tournament are to be posted in [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/topics.aspx?forumID=9][u]The Classifieds[/u][/url] only. Posting an advertisement anywhere else will receive immediate ninja attention. [*] Noob, Newbie, N00b, and any other variants on the word newb are hereby banned from use on this forum as is the "gamer slur of the week" (currently the "bad kid" alterations would qualify). Any user who violates this rule will be put to [url=http://www.soffish.com/images/noob.gif][u]death[/u][/url]. These are insults and are a form of personal attack. It is not "playful trash talking", save it for your LAN party where the target of the slur at least has the ability to kick you in the nuts. [*]Don't use the forums as a means of communicating with a specific person. That is what Private Messages are for. [*] No bad jokes. (We mean it!) [*] Do not "break" the page width or forum formating by repeating or special characters. [*] Do not post in all Capital letters. Additionally do not post in “leet” speak or with special characters/symbols. [*] Do not create threads with "attention-grabbing" subject lines such as all-caps, excessive punctuation, or out-of-context special symbols or characters. [*]Posting "epic fail" forum art is an automatic 7 day blacklist. No warning, no questions asked. This is spam and irrelevant on these forums, post it and you will be taking time off. [*]Do [b]not[/b] post "reported" or any variation when replying to topics. Doing so will earn you nothing more than a blacklist. [*]Do [b]not[/b] attempt to buy, sell, or barter accounts, or anything else for that matter on these boards. Doing so violates our code of conduct, and will be met with at least a 14 day ban from the forums. [*]Typing upside down using an online translator is grounds for a ban. Don't do it. [*] You have no rights. Play nice.™ [quote][/quote] -==Spam and You==- [i]Various ramblings and insights...[/i] >If you encounter a spam topic report it via the [url=http://i29.tinypic.com/2ldvyw5.jpg][u][i] Report Spam[/u][/i][/url] >Do [b]not[/b] reply to spam.

There's no point in making a forum topic if we can't understand it because of multiple spelling errors. [*]Don't use stupid abbreviations. (Example: Your = ur, You = u, Are = r, I = EYE, one = 1) [*]Use the [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Search/default.aspx?q=&g=0][u]Search Feature[/u][/url] [*]Always check the stickies, they contain useful information and can likely answer most questions.

    [u][b]BUNGIE.NET DEFINITIONS:[/b][/u] [quote]What is "spam"?[/quote]Spam is any post that does not contribute to discussion on these forums. That includes: - Threads that only require a one-liner reply such as a number or rank - Rick Rolls - "youfail," "You Fail," "Epic Fail," "Phail," "youfail.org," or anything even remotely similar - ASCII art, such as facepalm, middle finger, the care cup, or anything similar - Posts in any language other than readable and intelligible English - Forum Games - Posts that attempt to "catch attention" by using all-caps, false hyperlinks, or all-bold/italics/underline. - Any other post that does not contribute or encourage intelligent discussion here Bungie.net's administrators and forum moderators reserve the right to determine whether any particular post is spam and to warn or blacklist users with this thread being your only warning. If you are unsure about any particular post, PM a moderator BEFORE posting. [quote]What is "bumping"?[/quote]"Bumping" is replying to a thread for the sole reason of bringing it back to the top of the forum. A thread can be "bumped" even if the user is not the original poster and even if the post is not a double-post (two posts in a row by the same user). A good rule of thumb to follow is, any reply in a thread should be an actual and on-topic "reply" to a previous poster who posted after the last time that you did. [quote]What is a "petition"?[/quote]A "petition" is any thread designed to acquire signatures, including threads seeking change in Bungie games, policies, actions, or rules. All "sign here" threads or similarly purposed threads are petitions. [quote]What is "off-topic" and what is "on-topic" in this forum?[/quote]This forum is for discussion of topics relating [i]directly[/i] to Halo 3 only. Off-topic posts include: - Posts about XBox Live - Posts about Bungie.net / XBL / Halo 3 indidivdual users and players - Posts about groups of users based on age, race, sex, religion, national origin, or ethnicity. - Other-games-versus-Halo-3 topics - Halo 4 or future Bungie game topics - Bungie.net website topics - Bungie general topics, and - Any other post that does not relate directly to Halo 3. [quote]What is "trolling"?[/quote]Trolling is any post designed to evoke an emotional or flaming response instead of an informed, well-reasoned reply. These posts are characterized by broad generalizations and personal accusations about specific people or groups of people rather than a well-reasoned assertion backed up with support. Just a few examples of trolling include: - "All level 50s suck" - "Kids under 13 have squeaky voices and are all annoying" - "MLG players are arrogant" - "Halo 3 is the worst game ever created" [quote]The Terms of Use and Code of Conduct give Bungie Employees and Forum Moderators the right to interpret these definitions based on their own personal experience and opinions.[/quote] [Edited on 10.01.2008 3:14 PM PDT by Duardo]

    <[b]Halo 3 forum specific rules.[/b]> [quote][/quote] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x Bungie's Web Team has asked us to inform you that threads about the griefing clan "HLG," or any other clan dedicated to griefing (i.e., ruining the game experience for others by hiding, exploiting in game glitches, network manipulation, or other means) other players in Matchmaking are prohibited. Violation of this rule will result in a one-week-minimum ban.[/quote] [quote][b]Posted By[/b]: lukems Lately, we've been getting a lot of repeat threads here on the H3 forum, a lot of complaining, some constructive, some inflammatory. We're not interested in stifling well-thought out criticism, but the flamebait and vitriol is a bit out of hand. A few pro-tips for retaining your posting abilities: 1. Search the forums 2. If it's something you're complaining about, check my own post history, while it's not all encompassing and there are likely gaps in both quality and regularity, I have mentioned a bunch of things on the H3 forum about the following; Ranks, EXP boosting, Game Mechanics, and discussed in vague terms some of the complexities Bungie is facing in tackling any potential issues in Halo 3. Infractions will be met with 30-day bans, effective immediately. [/quote] [b]About Recon[/b] [i]Your final and only warning![/i] [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=17206655] Nothing about Recon armor ever needs to get posted. You can't have it, you don't need to know how to get it, we don't care about your complaints about how you can't have it, or gloating that you do have it. If you want to talk about it so bad, make a group where you can make it so that all threads have to be about Recon armor.. [/url] So do not post about it or you will be blacklisted. [quote][b]Posted By[/b]: Lukems Following up on this, asking folks from Bungie or here on the forums if we'll give it to you is a pretty great way of ensuring that you won't. Go about your business, be good folks and be excellent to everyone. And I'd probably advise against behaviors that would augment your EXP in some fashion, as well. We're watching, making lists, checking them twice and doling out treats when appropriate. [/quote] The Halo 3 forum is [b]not[/b] the appropriate place to talk about matchmaking playlists. If you'd like to take part in the discussions on playlists or leave feedback on the latest updates please use the [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Forums/topics.aspx?forumID=5576] Optimatch forum. [/url] The Halo 3 forum is not to be used to set up custom games or to find people to party up with. Please visit this [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=13630199] thread [/url] to set up, search for and participate in custom games, or use the Classifieds forum. This also applies for "help", consult your friendlist if you want to co-op Legendary. The Halo 3 forum is not to show off your "awesome stickzorz!" please use the appropiate subforum in the [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/default.aspx?mode=halo3] Halo 3 Files Forum.[/url] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] x Foman123 x Lots of people, even faithful Halo 3 fans, are excited about the release of new video games by other companies. Everybody likes a great video game, and there's nothing wrong with that. But please be aware that [b][u]threads discussing other games are not allowed in the Halo 3 Forum[/b][/u] -- even if you call it a "Other Game vs Halo 3" topic. That doesn't mean you can't discuss new video games at all on Bungie.net -- just be sure to do it in [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/topics.aspx?forumID=10]The Flood Forum rather than here in the Halo 3 Forum[/url]. Please consider this your warning -- these threads will be locked and their creators warned and/or banned.[/quote] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] evilcam This rash of people selling accounts on our site has got to stop. You can't use our site for personal profit. You can't sell ANYTHING on this site. If you create a topic which attempts to sell anything, you will be banned, for quite awhile. Consider this your warning.[/quote] [quote]Please do not post to complain about Group X, Y, or Z choosing Bungie Favorites. Any user who does so will be banned for a minimum of three days. Any user who replies to [b]and/or makes any post at all[/b] in a thread violating the above rule will be warned or banned in accordance with this rule and the rules against replying to spam. Please use the "Report" button and move on. Thanks.[/quote] First, and most importantly, [url=http://img396.imageshack.us/my.php?image=10755713bp7.jpg]Click Here[/url]. Because people still can't be bothered to read the rules, here's an FAQ regarding Recon Armor. Recon armor topics and debates have recently become a full blown epidemic. In this case, [b][u]any thread about Recon Armor will be met with a stern ban.[/b][/u] Bungie has decided to use Recon as a means to either reward exceptional community members or any other way they see fit. Begging for it, selling yourself into slavery, hippo licking™ or posting every "leet" video that you've ever taken will not get you Recon Armor. Let me also clarify this rule with another post. [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=17854014][quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Achronos If you were following the rules, your thread wouldn't have gotten locked. If you want to find the source of your problem, locate a mirror. The rules apply to everybody - the mods aren't on a power trip because you happen to not like a certain rule. Nothing about Recon armor ever needs to get posted. You can't have it, you don't need to know how to get it, we don't care about your complaints about how you can't have it, or gloating that you do have it. If you want to talk about it so bad, make a group where you can make it so that all threads have to be about Recon armor.[/quote][/url] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] ash55 Additional: If you see a thread that is entitled "How do I get reconz?" or anything similar, if you reply to it, [i]you're bumping a spam thread and keeping it alive.[/i] Under no circumstances are you to reply. Even if you intend well, you are ruining the forums by doing so and you will be blacklisted. If you want to tell the OP that their thread is off-topic, do so with a PM only. Thank you, you have been warned.[/quote] [quote][b]Posted by:[/b]Achilles1108 Ok for all of you who do not understand what ash is saying I will summarize it for you. If you reply to any Recon thread you will get a [b][i]minimum[/b][/i] 3 day blacklisting. If you you do it again they will just get longer. Now is that simple enough to understand?[/quote] [quote][/quote][u]A mini FAQ about Recon:[/u] [b]What is Recon Armor?[/b] [i]Recon Armor is a special set of armor for Halo 3. It was originally given out to Bungie Staff and is a much sought after reward. [/i] [b]How do I obtain some reconz for me?[/b] [i]Posted By: Lukems Following up on this, asking folks from Bungie or here on the forums if we'll give it to you is a pretty great way of ensuring that you won't. Go about your business, be good folks and be excellent to everyone. And I'd probably advise against behaviors that would augment your EXP in some fashion, as well. We're watching, making lists, checking them twice and doling out treats when appropriate.[/i] [url=http://www.bungie.net/news/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=12857][i]I’m making a list, I’m checking it twice, and it’s a list of dumb messages (and perfectly polite ones) inquiring about the Recon armor permutation. The short answer to those inquiries is, “No, you can’t have it.” The people you see with the Recon helmet are Bungie employees, and they did nothing in-game to unlock it. There is nothing you can do to unlock it.[/i][/url] [url=http://www.bungie.net/News/content.aspx?type=topnews&cid=12901][i]We’ll give it out based on good deeds and valuable community service and occasionally because they make us laugh, as seen above. There will be plenty of occasions and reasons to get it. PM-ing and emailing us will not make any difference. But play nice and be a good sport and who knows?[/i][/url] Recently we've been hearing a lot of chatter about “go to this link and send it to 50 of your friends” type messages showing up in people's messages. This [b]will not get you recon[/b] by either sending or trying to participate in them. Ignore them and block the user. Also information about going into your internet browser and changing your Halo 3 Service Record picture to recon will not get you recon. This is only a local change in how your browser reads Bungie.net and you will be the only person who sees a new picture in your Service Record. [b]Where can I see this recon armor?[/b] [i]Follow this link to read Halopedia's article about it [url=http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Mark_VI_MJOLNIR_Powered_Assault_Armor/R_variant] here.[/url] There are also other websites that feature pictures and tidbits of information about it as well, please pick your search engine of choice (google for example) and initiate a search for it. Additionally using Bungie's own search feature and can look up previous topics about Recon.[/i] [b]Can I has recon!?[/b] [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=17206655]Recon Rule[/url] [url=http://admin.bungie.net/Forums/posts.aspx?postID=25767341]In the wake of recent development we have decided to issue some advice and some extensions of the rules. Not just specifically for this forum but for all forums. Threads about groups of users based on age, gender, or nationality, including discrimination against these groups, will be barred from further discussion. Topics that have been created before today will be locked, new topics will be met with a blacklisting.[/url] [Edited on 09.30.2008 2:26 PM PDT by x Foman123 x]
