As already hinted on the forum, we've updated our forum rules - see the updated version here: https://support.gog.com/hc/en-us/articles/115001814049-Forum-Code-of-Conduct
Please take the time to read the rules and familiarize yourselves with them before posting on the forum. For the majority of you, I believe nothing will change in terms of what and how you post, however, I'm very much hoping to see a positive change in the overall environment of the forum. Some of you might have to be a bit harder on themselves to get used to the new Code of Conduct, but I'm sure you can all do it!
Also note that, while I welcome constructive feedback, the rules are currently not subject to change. I'd like to give it a couple months to see if/how they work, before considering any major changes and updates.
Thanks everyone for your co-operation!
EDIT: Just to clarify as it's come up a few times - support tickets are not to be used as reports. If you wish to alert me to something you suspect breaks forum rules (this excludes past offences), do so via PMs to me directly.
EDIT2: If you have any questions, before asking me directly, please read through this thread: https://www.gog.com/forum/general/rules_threads_all_that_jazz
I looked over some of the rules and while some are clear and plane such as not posting pornography others are more open to interpretation. I think the addition of extra forums features would be more useful. We already have a ratting system and the ability to ignore. Maybe more things like that. I really don't think the "going off topic one" is good because people go off topic all the time and I've been accused of going off topic when I thought I was right on topic.
