Forum Guidelines


Obsidian Entertainment provides this forum community as a service to you, our customers and community. As with any community, there are certain rules that must be in place in order to maintain a mature and fun place to visit. The rules below apply to any of the available methods of communication these forums provide, including but not limited to, posting, private messaging, e-mail and instant messaging.

In general, our guidelines are based on the fundamentals of common sense, respect and tolerance. We ask that our users not post material that is abusive, defamatory, libelous, harassing, hateful, obscene, profane, vulgar, or illicit. When posting to a file, please ensure that it is not a direct download. When posting a link, please be aware that external sites might change their content without warning, so avoid linking to sites of unknown or questionable reputation AS YOU WILL BE HELD RESPONSIBLE.

Advertisement: This forum is not to be used to advertise or distribute products, services or copyrighted material. Please do not post scans of magazine articles about our games - while this may be of interest to the community, this material is generally copyrighted, and Obsidian will fully cooperate with copyright holders to maintain their rights.

Alternative Accounts: At the present moment there is some tolerance for the use of alt accounts. Such use, however, remains dependent on the appropriateness of such accounts. If an alt is used in an infraction of any of the Forum Guidelines that account will be removed and the member who created will be censured. Furthermore, the use of an alt that is used by more than one member is strictly prohibited. Such accounts will be immediately disabled and all members will be censured accordingly

Avatars and Signatures: Obsidian allows its users to associate a graphic image, or avatar, with their account. This image is displayed in posts underneath the user's name, and may be 64x64 in size, and may not display pornographic, indecent or otherwise inappropriate imagery. Users may be requested by the administrators or moderators to change this avatar at any time.

Users may also create a signature that appears at the end of every post. Such signatures should remain at six lines or less of text without imagery, or at most two lines of text with imagery. All images, regardless of text configuration, must fit within a perimeter of 125 pixels high by 600 pixels long.

Discrimination: Obsidian has a zero-tolerance policy with regard to racial, ethnic, gender, religious, disablement, and/or sexually discriminating remarks.

Harassment: We ask that the users of this board treat one another with respect, even when opinions differ. Personal attacks that are intended to cause unwanted attention, embarrassment, or harm will not be tolerated. In addition, Obsidian does not tolerate disrespectful and/or slanderous posts about its competitors, developers and publishers. Such posts will be subject to editing or deleting, with its posters censured or banned.

Images: Obsidian prohibits the posting of sexual, violent, or otherwise indecent or illicit imagery on its forums, or through it communication features, such as private messaging or e-mail.

Impersonation: Impersonating another person, such as a celebrity, political figure, user, moderator, company, or Obsidian Entertainment employee is prohibited.

Moderators: Should you find posts that seem inappropriate, please feel free to let our moderators know. If you have an issue with the moderators, please use our private messaging system to message the moderator or administrator. Personal issues between moderators and users may not be posted publicly (nor through avatar or signature use) and will be deleted without notice.

Objectionable Content: The use of abusive, vulgar or profane language, even if hidden through the use of symbols or other characters is not tolerated. Intentionally posting workarounds to our language filters are prohibited. Posts may be edited or deleted at any time by the moderation team, and depending on the severity and frequency of said posts, the poster may be censured or banned.

Spam: Posting frequent, annoying, and/or nonsensical posts are not tolerated in these forums. Posting the same message to multiple forums (also known as cross-posting) is also not permitted. The 'Ban Me Game' or any such variations will result in the member being placed into moderated status until such determination can be made whether this form of SPAM will result in the removal of posting privileges

Trolling: Trolling is also not allowed in regard to other gaming companies, their employees or moderators. We've worked and continue to work with various people at many game companies, and it is not within the spirit of our forums to allow disrespectful posts about other company's policies, employees, or moderators. It's OK to say you don't like a game, but referring to another company's employees or the company itself is simply not be tolerated here. Posts which intentionally attack another game company and/or it's employees will be deleted and the member censured accordingly

The rules above are open to interpretation by the moderators and administrators of these boards. All decisions made by Obsidian Entertainment regarding these rules are final.

If you have any questions, feel free to send a private message to any of our moderators or administrators.
