With the upcoming changes being announced keep the following guidelines in mind when posting. This is the place to discuss these changes only.
Failure to do so will result in an automatic infraction.
- Do not merely link blue post information without any useful contribution of your own.
- Do not bitch, whine or moan about the changes during your discussion of them.
- Do not suggest what you think Blizzard should do. Neither we nor Blizzard care about your great idea.
- Do not post class change discussion in the current 3.3.3 threads.
- Do remember that all normal rules apply.
- Do remember that these are proposed changes and subject to fine tuning and/or complete overhaul.
Those suggestions should provide a good baseline for appropriate discussion of the changes in development. However, I understand warlock psychology and the needs of the warlock population. You crave answers, quantification of penalties, and certainty in what is and is not acceptable. To that end, I am providing the following supplementary rules:
1. Discussion of revealed information will be limited to this thread only. Attempts to spread discussion to other threads without specific mod permission (we won't grant it, don't ask) will result in at least a 1-day ban.
2. Anyone copy/pasting or linking to information that has already been linked/pasted will receive disciplinary action. Read before posting. This has always been a rule and is even more important now than usual.
3. Whining about Cataclysm changes will result in an infraction severe enough to result in AT LEAST a one-week ban. Note that this may result in a large number of infraction points being assigned at once. Don't let that happen to you.
4. Useless speculation and/or wishlisting will result in AT LEAST a three-day ban.
5. If your post does not actually contribute to the conversation in a worthwhile manner, expect to be disciplined more harshly than usual.
Those of you reading other threads should feel free to report any Cataclysm discussion in them. That discussion should be in here. As with any big news, the number of terrible, stupid and otherwise annoying posts is likely to increase for a while. Help us moderators keep this forum readable and the information readily available.
Thank you. And now, on with the show!
