Hey guys, you're to be congratulated. The folks who wanted a modding forum now have one thanks in largest part to the willingness of the community to calmly and patiently advocate for it.
I'm the junior mod on the totem pole, so this isn't *my* victory. I doubt I had much to do with getting this forum in place. There will be guidelines and FAQs coming soon along with a list of forum moderators and, most importantly, interested members who will share their experiences. The *only* thing I'm doing now, and this is because there are no posts as of right now as I create this thread, is to congratulate you and, just as importantly, urge you to keep up the good work you've done by maintaining the principles that have made this forum possible in the first place.
1. Be gentle with one another. Debate, even fierce debate, is always welcome. Personal attacks and pointless acrimony don't help anyone.
2. Be conscious of the intellectual property of others. Not just because of potential trouble but, beyond that, because it's the right thing to do. When in doubt, consult Obsidian's guidelines here: https://eternity.obs...et/legal/ip-use
3. Help one another. The point of this forum is for folks to compare ideas and create possibilities for everyone to share.
4. Lodge complaints against Obsidian where you find fault and speak your mind, but remember that they created the game, this message board, and this sub-forum. They deserve some gratitude for that. If it weren't for them, we wouldn't be here.
This is all I have now and, as other mods assert their authority I'll probably gulag this post. I just wanted to get a quick word in saying congratulations.
