    Welcome to the Combat Arms: The Classic Forums! We want to make the forums a positive and productive environment where you, the players, can interact and have discussions on various topics relating the game. The forums are a place where people can interact and have discussions about different topics related to Combat Arms: The Classic and unrelated topics should be posted in the Off Topic Discussion category. We ask that you follow these guidelines to ensure that the forums have productive conversation. These rules and guidelines are strictly enforced by the administrators and moderators, and at their discretion may delete posts without warning that do not comply. Also, failure to comply with these rules or our Terms of Agreement and Privacy Policy may result in a ban from the forums or the entire game.

    Respecting Others
    • Please show respect and consideration to other users. We want the forums to be a welcoming place for everyone.
    • Every single one of us in here come from various backgrounds which means whenever you create a post, a reply, and/or a comment, always keep in mind to always be polite and respectful.
    • Please keep all personal conflicts aside as we want every topic to have positive discussions, not arguments.
    Personal Information
    • Please do not post any personal information about yourself or anyone else in the forum.
    • If you witness anything that resembles personal information about someone, kindly ask the poster to remove it or report it by flagging the post (Recommended).
    • Personal information can be defined as any data that explicitly reveals the real-world identity of an individual.
    Forum ID / User ID
    • Your VALOFE account is tied to your forum account which means that whatever your User ID is for the game, it will also reflect your Forum ID.
    • The ID that you use will be the name that will represent you.
    • VALOFE Staff have the right to change your Forum ID into something more appropriate if proven that the ID is inappropriate.
    Avatars and Signatures
    • An avatar is the display picture that represents you and your signature are words or images that you have on the bottom of each post that you make.
    • Please keep your signature to an appropriate size and your avatar decent.
    • Avatars and signatures that contain inappropriate content or not allowed may be edited or deleted by staff or moderators.
    VALOFE Staff, Game Masters, and Moderators
    • Members under these titles will enforce the Forum Rules and Conduct and reply to topics and posts whether it's to address an issue or to simply have fun.
    • Being unable to respond to you does not mean that we are ignoring you but because we simply don't have a good answer as of that time.
    • We'll always try to help out but please remember that we have other tasks as well.
    Topics Directed to VALOFE Staff, Game Masters, and/or Moderators
    • The forums is not the place to direct your personal issue, vendetta, or whatever you have in mind to attack anyone.
    • This includes questioning your account suspension, profile modifications, and topics or posts being deleted.
    • If you feel that Staff, GMs, or Moderators are ganging up on you, please understand that we do not have the time for silly things like that. We have actual work to do.
    Topic Titles using the words "VALOFE", "GM", "MODERATOR", or any VALOFE Staff / GM / Moderator Names
    • We understand that everyone would like VALOFE to read and acknowledge their posts, however, using these words will not help the topic's visibility. Always make it relevant.
    • Topics containing ambiguous titles such as "HELP IT'S AN EMERGENCY" will attract less replies compared to titles that give a clear description of the topic.
    • Try not to make it look like a spam as these topics can be closed / deleted.
    False, Fabricated, and/or Fictitious Topics/Posts
    • Do not post false, fabricated, and/or fictitious topics/posts.
    • Official news or announcements will always come from the website first.
    • If you feel like you are looking at false, fabricated, and/or fictitious topics or post, try to contact whoever may be involved and have them clarify it for you.
    • If you cannot reach anyone involved, contact anyone that has direct contact with the person involved instead of being an accessory to spreading false, fabricated, and/or fictitious topics or posts.
    • Combat Arms: The Classic Forums is a Safe for Work environment. Always.
