Arrow UPDATE to Forum and Organizational Changes

UPDATE to Forum and Organizational Changes
Updated September 16, 2010
Communications Department



In our continuing efforts to improvement the ability of SWG PreCU players to come and help the development process, we have taken another hard look at the forum rules and staff positions. Please read the announcement below that updates Forum and Organizational Changes.


Revisions to Forum Rules
  • 2.4 Troll posts or threads. We define troll posts and threads as those which knowingly lead to inflammatory or off-topic messages with the intent of A) provoking other users into a desired emotional response or B) disrupting normal on-topic discussion. 1 point, expires in 9 months has been revised to
    • 2.4 Troll posts or threads. We define troll posts and threads as those which knowingly lead to inflammatory or off-topic messages with the sole intent of A) provoking other users into a desired emotional response or B) disrupting normal on-topic discussion. 1 point, expires in 3 months
  • 2.5 Posts that have been removed are not to be reposted. 2 points, expires in 12 months has been revised to
    • 2.5 Purposely repost threads that have been locked or deleted by the SWGEmu Team. 2 points, expires in 6 months
  • 2.9 Upload files that contain a virus or corrupted data. 5 points, never expires has been revised to
    • 2.9 Upload files or post a link that contains a virus or malicious data. 5 points, never expires
  • 2.13 Spam, defined as the re-posting of content repeatedly. Spam includes QFE's without explanation, +1's, Bumps, blatantly off topic posts and "In Before Lock"s. 1 point, expires in 2 weeks has been revised to
    • 2.13 Spam, defined as the re-posting of content repeatedly. 1 point, expires in 2 weeks.
    • All infractions given based on the old incarnation of this rule have been reversed.
  • 2.14 Advertise or attempt to sell products for profit. Only products authorised by SWGEmu may be advertised for sale. 1 point, expires in 3 months has been revised to
    • 2.14 Advertise or attempt to sell products for profit from any SWGEmu service, such as in-game items, in-game characters, etc or any non-SWGEmu product shown on any of the SWGEmu services. Only products authorised by SWGEmu may be advertised for sale. 1 point, expires in 3 months


Revisions to Organizational Structure
  • The TC Server department, managed by TheAnswer, has been renamed to TC Services Department to cover all SWGEmu services, not just TC: Nova. The "services" we refer to are not player support services but are the hardware and software administration behind the scenes.
  • PhantomLeader has accepted the move to the manager position for the new Test Center Services Department.
  • The Moderation department has been reorganized in its structure and staffing.
  • Leodextrin has accepted the promotion to Lead Moderator and will report directly to Kellina, Support Manager.
  • New organizational chart


Points of Clarification:
  • The updated rules are reordered so the progression from minor to major rules is clarified.
  • The new account management system includes new versions of all our services.
  • The new account management system will allow the separation of infraction points so all our services will have their own, independent tally of demerit points and independent bans.
  • The old forums will be archived so useful posts can be brought into the new forum easily by Staff.
  • Those that currently have approved multiple accounts will be able to continue with approved multiple accounts.
  • "Impersonate another person (including celebrities)" is so people don't hide behind a name or account that is not their own.
  • The policies and rules listed in this announcement are effective immediately to all users registered on this site.
  • Your account name can only be changed when the new site is released. This will likely be with the release of the OR to TC: Nova but we will not hold up the OR release waiting on the site to be finished.
