Welcome to the official Outbreak forum!

Hereby some basic rules:

1. No Flaming
Flaming is considered anything that is said or done to insult another member. All members are to be treated fairly. If you don’t have anything nice to say, don't say it at all. If there is a serious issue that needs to be addressed, please talk to a moderator. If you are caught flaming, then you will get an immediate warning, if flaming is directed toward a staff member you may be banned. Attempting to start "drama" will not be tolerated.

2. No Discrimination
This is similar to flaming, but is not aimed at a particular person or social group, but towards an entire race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. Discrimination is a serious offense and will lead you a warning, or possible banning. Again, think before you post.

3. No Illegal Discussions/Downloads
No links to illegal downloads or copyrighted materials are permitted. This includes, movies, books, software,etc. Do not attempt to sell these products or post links to where this can be done. This will result in a ban.

4. No Alternate Accounts
IP's and login times are traced once you login onto your account. These can be checked to verify that you do not have multiple accounts. Attempting to do this will result in a ban. If there is a circumstance where you think your ip may show up for different accounts, contact us FIRST, so we are aware of the situation. Playing with multiple accounts will result in an immediate ban. There will be NO WARNINGS. The use of VPNs or Proxies is allowed but we are able to track them. If needed we can ask for more details or to temporarily disable them when your account is under investigation.

5. No Plagiarism
Do not steal other people's works and post them on this forum as your own. If you find something cool, that you'd like to share, please provide a link to that site. If you are using information form another site, you must credit them in the post. Stealing information and calling it your own will not be tolerated.

6. Posting Links
We ask that before posting a link that you check with an admin or moderator. Reason being is so that we can check to make sure you are not sharing links that may contain a key logger or any type of virus, or posting a link that will ask for personal information. We want our members to be safe.

Approved links: YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia, Foto links.

7. Our Content on your Site
If we find you have copied anything from this forum onto your site without providing the proper credit/link, we will ask you to remove it. If you don't, we will ban your IP address from this forum and we will contact your host about this. Our members put a lot of effort into our original content. Please respect this. Feel free to tell others about things here, but DO NOT copy it and use it as your own.

8. Spam
Please keep Spam to a minimum. To not be considered spam, your post must be longer than 5 characters. Please do not promote your webiste or your store. If you'd like to do that, contact an Admin and we will see about allowing you to promote here. Flooding members PM boxes with spam is also not tolereated.

9. Similar Threads/Correct Posting
Before creating a new topic/thread, take a look around and see if a similar topic already exists. It only takes a moment, and you can use the search function, too. Please make all posts in the correct forum. This is common sense. If we find that you are constantly posting reply's in the wrong forum, you will receive a warning. Please keep things on topic when posting. Do NOT hijack someone's thread for your idea.

10. Content/Pictures
Nude pictures, pornography, or links to like material are NOT ALLOWED. There are plenty of places to go to find this stuff on the internet, this is not one of them. Please keep all pictures posted within these limits. Any graphic content or offensive material is NOT ALLOWED. Please use good judgment on this. If you post something that the staff feels is violating this rule, the post will be removed and you will be issued a warning.

11. Calling out/treatment of Staff Members
Will do nothing but get you in trouble. If you have an issue with a staff member, take it to PM, but keep it respectful. You may not always agree with a decision, and that is fine. The staff has a job to do, please let them do it. Remember, we are here to help you. The staff deserves your respect, and I expect them to be treated with it. Disrespecting a mod or admin will get you suspended, even banned. There is to be NO discussion on any action a mod or admin takes. Ever. Members are not allowed to post messages from banned or suspended members.

12. Language
This is not too much of a problem, talk how you want, but please do not overdo the swearing. We understand this is a game, and some people might do some role-playing. If this gets out of hand, censors will be added to block out swear words.

Haha sorry Rick_Grimes ;)
@physics, no it won't result in a ban, your brother is welcome to play. We understand people can play from the same location (same house, same school, etc). We encourage teamplay, so if you and your brother try to work together, as other players also do, it is no problem. We do monitor activity and if we see suspicious accounts - like town A doing nothing but sending all his resources to town B - we can decide to give a ban.
