    Forum Rules and Guidelines (Read Before Posting)


    If you plan to participate in this forum, you must follow these strict rules:

    Message Icons
    • You MUST choose a relevent message icon for a new thread. Not choose one will result in a warning and your thread being removed.
    • If you don't see an icon for the topic you wish to discuss, you are in the wrong forum. Mod ideas and concept discussions belong in the Mod Request Forum, and editing questions here and programming questions belong here.
    • Vehicle CTF belongs under MOD MAP for now.
    • The OFFICIAL icon is for Admins only use of it will result in a ban.

    Subject Lines
    • If your thread contains pictures add [Pics] to the end of your subject line.
    • Add the status of your mod in the subject (Example: [Alpha], [Beta], [Final])
    • If you have updated your thread with a later post, go to the first post and change the subject to [Updated]
    • If your map is for UT2003 only add [03] otherwise we assume it works for UT2004

    Etiquette and Behavior
    • Screenshots cannot be larger then 640x480. If you want to link to a larger photo that is fine, you are welcome to use the [screenshot] tag to resize on the fly.
    • Do not misuse the Recruit icon for clans, it is for mod teams only, misuse will result in warnings
    • If you want to advertise your mod/map in a thread, we suggest the following format:
      1. Name: Your Map/Mod Name
      2. Version: Version Number/Status
      3. Compatibility: UT2003 or UT2004 and other mods or patches it requires to have installed.
      4. Description: Description/Concept
      5. Comments: Comments
      6. Screenshot: 3 screenshots of your work in action (must be 640x480)
      7. Credits: Yourself and whoever you borrowed content from
      8. Homepage: Link to website
      9. Download: Link to download
    • If you like a mod, you are expected to leave feedback and cast a vote on the mod. You can vote by the dropdown in the bottom right corner of the thread.
    • Constructive criticism is welcome but do not be harsh or mean, you'll be swiftly removed for out of line remarks.


    If for any reason you don't follow these rules you'll probably get a warning for insubordination. You expect users to read about your mod but you don't read the rules.

    If you receive a violation in this forum it is likely for one of the following reasons:
    1. You didn't select the proper post icon
    2. You didn't construct the proper subject line
    3. You had screenshots larger then 640x480
    4. You posted off topic
    5. You were being a jerk and not leaving constructive feedback

    Just a reminder: The above rules need to be adhered to or your threads will be closed. If you forget to use a post icon you can edit your thread under "thread tools" at the top of your post. You may also PM me and I'll add it for you.

    Thank you!
