When using these forums, please refer to these rules and our Rules of Conduct help yourself and others to keep this a nice and friendly place.
No "harmful" content please
Some examples of links you shouldn't be posting:
These forums are for everyone, so treat others as you would have them treat you. Be a decent human being and show respect to your fellow player. Please consider that for many players, English is a second language. Also consider that all players do not have your wisdom, game skill or general understanding of the game.
Vulgar Language and Swearing, is not allowed. Swearing, even in Abbreviation or phonetically, in an attempt to bypass the swear filter, is not allowed. You can make your point just as easy, without such language.
Post in English
We're a multi-cultural and multi-lingual bunch here on the forums, let's all try and speak the same language so everyone can participate. Please be considerate to those who have difficulties with English. U wot m8? This also includes text speech. Please keep it to a minimum.
Other people will have different opinions than yours, that's their right. Don't flame someone for disagreeing with you. In turn, donât post topics that will incite flaming, be thoughtful in your choice of words when composing your topic.
Continuing the spam specific guideline: Everyone likes to be able to read forums without going blind. Please refrain from posting spam, or other "nonsense" which serves no purpose. This includes "Cool story bro", "lolumad?" images and click to grow pets and other such websites, ascii drawings and Sub/superscript, excessive or unneeded use of upper case letters, posting "First", "First Page" and "Second" solely to show that you are one of the first to comment, seizure inducing animate gifs, excessively gory or violent images, this includes, but is not limited to meaningless or unproductive posts or replies (see Flaming).
Signatures may be a very personal part of yourself on the forums but you must take into consideration other players using the forums. That is why under no circumstances may signatures contain any abusive, racist or sexual language or imagery. You are also not allowed to call out other players or name and shame them in your signature.
Signatures are your Battlefield Heroes identity. For COMPLETE details on Battlefield Heroes Forum signatures, please read HERE
Everyone wants to comment on something, and feel free to use the forums to interact with the topics that interest you. But please do not troll these forums.
Some examples that are considered trolling:
This is a community forum, not a place to peddle your site/wares. You can leave the blatant ad space filling to us. This also includes links to websites that get users to generate hit counts, offer prizes for joining and completing tasks or attempt to lure users to sell or offer unlicensed EA products or software including other games.
You are not allowed to sell your wares and/or services on the Battlefield Heroes forums. This includes but is not limited to eBay auctions, accounts of any kind, forum signatures or or any other service.
Make sense, not war
When you start a new thread, try to use a title that makes sense. If people can easily see what you want to talk about, they will be more likely to open your thread and talk with you.
Some examples of inappropriate thread titles:
No Politics & Religion
When you use these forums, please leave your politics and religion at the door. Everyone is entitled to their views and opinions, but these forums are for fun and for social contact. Discussions can get heated at any moment; politics and religion are two topics that will quickly send a thread down in flames. This also includes political and religious imagery in player signature art, links to political groups and websites and links to religious groups, churches and websites.
No one gets favored
Don't use attention seekers. What's an attention seeker, you ask? Using an Administrator or Moderatorâs name in your topic, for example. You don't need to add our name(s) in your thread title, nor use all CAPS to get our attention.
Reporting problematic players:
Don't give possible hackers, exploiters, stat-padders or otherwise problematic players attention on the forums. This includes, but is not limited to, creating topics about them, mocking them, generally discussing them and/or posting their user names.
Report by searching the player's name through player search, click the "report this player" button on the user's profile ( the one that shows all their character names) and link or upload video evidence in the report and fill the report out.
The nature of a forum is that discussion and interest will naturally bring important and relevant topics to light. Petitions do not contribute to a useful and productive forum. You can off course make suggestion in the relevant section.
