    [b][u]Halo 3 Forum: Forum-Specific Rules[/b][/u] *[b]Do not create topics related to Recon Armor as applied to individuals or personally awarded by Bungie.[/b] Recon Armor may be obtained by getting all "Vidmaster" Achievements in Halo 3, and therefore you may discuss Recon Armor in that or a broad, universal context only. For more information on Recon Armor generally, BEFORE POSTING please visit [url=http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Mark_VI_MJOLNIR_Powered_Assault_Armor/R_variant]this link[/url]. *[b]Topics about clans or groups of players dedicated to "griefing" other players in Matchmaking are prohibited.[/b] "Griefing" is the practice of ruining the game experience for others by hiding, exploiting in game glitches, network manipulation, or other means. This includes topics about "HLG" or any similar clan. Violation of this rule results in a minimum one-week or longer ban, with extended bans depending on the individual circumstances of the post and the user. *[b]Admitting to any form of cheating or griefing in Halo 3 is grounds for extended or permanent ban.[/b] *[b]Threads discussing other games are not allowed in the Halo 3 Forum.[/b] This applies even if you call it an "Other Game vs Halo 3" topic. This does not mean that you cannot discuss other games on Bungie.net at all -- but please discuss them in the [url=http://www.bungie.net/Forums/topics.aspx?forumID=10]Flood Forum[/url] rather than the Halo 3 Forum. *[b]Posting to complain about the fileshare items selected for Bungie Favorites is prohibited.[/b] Any user who does so will be banned for a minimum of three days. Any user who replies to and/or makes any post at all 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. *[b]Please conduct a search before posting about common issues or problems, including searching through Bungie employees' recent posts.[/b] See below: [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]Leaks and Scans Are Prohibited[/b] [quote]As excitement and news of Halo 3: Recon and the Mythic Map Pack continues circulate in popular gaming publications around the world, we thought it would be prudent to remind you that posting scans of copyrighted material (such as a picture printed in a magazine) is illegal. As a result, doing so is prohibited under the Bungie.net Terms of Use and Code of Conduct, by which all users here have agreed that they will not: [quote]Upload files or post messages that contain photos, music, software or other material protected by intellectual property laws, rights of privacy or publicity, or any other applicable law unless you own or control the rights thereto or have received all necessary consents. [/quote] Bungie has notified the moderators of these forums that [u][b]posting scans of copyrighted material will result in a minimum ban of thirty days, with possible permanent ban.[/b][/u] Moreover, any user claiming to have, linking to, asking for, or otherwise discussing material that they believe to be inappropriately "leaked" will be [b][u]banned for a minimum of thirty days with possible permanent ban[/b][/u] "Leaked" material includes any material not officially released by Bungie via its website, its employees in their official capacity, or to the press. Please be sure to abide by these rules, as leaks and illegal content on Bungie.net are fought with the strictest measures.[/quote] * [b]Threads about external websites, even Halo 3-related sites, are prohibited as off-topic for this forum.[/b] * [b]"Rank/Statistics Baiting" and "Rank/Statistics Trolling" are prohibited.[/b] [quote][b]What are "Rank/Statistics Baiting" and "Rank/Statistics Trolling"?[/b] "Rank baiting" or "statistics baiting" means attempting to belittle or deride the opinion, statement, or argument of another user by bringing up that user's rank or statistics in Halo 3. For example, this includes (but is not limited to) posts similar to the following: * "I wouldn't expect you to understand this argument. You are only a Colonel." * "I don't know why you're complaining about that when you only have a 1.12 k/d ratio." * "You only believe that because you're a General." "Rank trolling" or "statistics trolling" means the creation of any post that relates to the personalities, behaviors, desires, motivations, or out-of-game activities of users based on their rank or statistics in Halo 3. For example, this includes (but is not limited to) posts similar to the following: * "Why are Generals such jerks?" * "Why are Majors such whiners?" * "Generals are obsessed with their ranks and statistics a lot more than the rest of us." * "Brigadiers have no life." * "People with more than 1000 triple kills tend to talk trash in the lobby." Such posts are prohibited. Violations of this rule may result in a ban.[/quote] [Edited on 01.07.2011 6:42 PM PST by Duardo]
