We have added two new rules to the forums for EVE Online. The new rules are as follows:
· Personal attacks and abuse of CCP staff.
There has been a worrying trend of increased personal attacks on developers on our own forums as of late, this will not be tolerated. Our forums are an area for players to exchange ideas in a polite and friendly manner for the betterment of EVE Online. Players who abuse staff will receive a permanent forum ban across all of their accounts which will not be subject to review at any time.
· Rumor threads and posts
Rumor threads and posts which are based off no actual information and are designed to either troll or annoy other users will be locked and removed. Players who engage in these type of threads can expect to receive a warning and ban.
Our aim with these new rules is to ensure that CCP staff can engage our community on the forums without being the target of ongoing personal attacks and hate speech. Our ongoing communication to players is paramount for development of EVE Online and we want to ensure that both developers and players can communicate in a friendly and engaging atmosphere.
