announcement ORBX FORUM RULES

Recommended Posts

Introduction

These community and support forums are privately owned and operated by Orbx Simulation Systems Pty. Ltd., and as such their use is governed by a set of terms and conditions separate from the terms and conditions for Orbx software.

Our forums are moderated by Orbx staff and community moderators. Posts can and will be deleted if they violate the terms of use or is deemed inappropriate by moderator discretion.

General Forums Rules:

1.    Users may only create a single account, users with multiple accounts will be requested to pick one account for future use and other accounts will be closed. Creation of duplicate accounts to circumvent a ban, evade piracy detection, or participate in a contest or giveaway more than once will result in banning of all current and future accounts.

2.    The private messaging (PM) system on the Orbx forums is strictly for private communication between registered members and is not to be used for support issues. Requests for support to staff members will be ignored or redirected to the appropriate support forum. Posting contents of a private message to a public space is viewed as a serious breach of privacy and will result in a permanent ban.

3.    Advertisements, release announcements, sales, contests, affiliate links, and other promotions for other developers or companies are not allowed. The Orbx forums are a private platform and not to be used for promotion of other entities.

4.    Signatures are limited to one image per person, with a size limit of 500 by 120pixels. Signatures may contain links to commercial products or services except for those competing with products or services provided by Orbx and it is not an affiliate program link. Signatures that may be confused with official staff are not allowed.

5.    User avatars, signatures, and other profile areas may not contain offensive materials and may be removed at moderator discretion.

6.    All text typed into forum posts automatically becomes the property of Orbx Simulations Systems Pty. Ltd. and can and may be used for product marketing, testimonials and/or evidence of forum misconduct. If you do not wish your text to become Orbx property then do not post on these forums. Orbx reserves the right to remove, re-purpose or delete any text typed into any posts or subforums. All screenshots displayed in forum posts can and may possibly be used for Orbx marketing, promotional material or form part of product design or brochures or used on web sites, regardless if those images are hosted on an Orbx-owned site or not. If you do NOT wish for Orbx to use your screenshots or images, then do not post them on these forums. Do NOT post images for which you do not have the right to display on these forums without the original author's permission.

7.    Rules are subject to change, forum moderators have final discretion over content posted to the Orbx forums.

 

Support Forums Rules:

1.    All support threads require a valid order number/transaction ID to receive support. Users that cannot provide a valid order number/transaction ID will not receive support.

2.    Any user caught pirating Orbx products will forfeit their rights to product support for any and all Orbx products purchased in the past. Additionally users will be banned from access to the community and support forums.

3.    Users who have had their access limited from the community forums can continue to receive support via the Limited User Support Forum.

4.    Please allow 24 hours for response to support threads, do not bump posts before this time period.

      5. This is a private support forum for issues with Orbx products only

 

Community Forums Rules:

1.    Be civil to your fellow users, rude behaviour, insults, personal attacks, and inflammatory posts will not be tolerated.

2.    Posts containing religious, political, sexual, discriminatory, or otherwise controversial/offensive content is disallowed

3.    Discussions of illegal activity including but not limited to software piracy is not allowed.

4.    Users with repeated infractions in the community forums will be limited in their participation but will still receive product support via the Limited User Support Forum.

 

Guidelines:

     Avoid using CAPS for subject lines or post content, it is interpreted as shouting in a forum environment.

     For promoting content or a flight simulation related website, contact an Orbx staff member to get permission before posting.

     Please refrain from posting threads which highlight, announce or promote other vendors' flight simulator products. Since Orbx is a commercial scenery vendor and this is a privately owned vendor forum, it is inappropriate to show screenshots or videos that specifically promote or highlight another vendors payware products
