Ash -> =DF= Question & Answer Forum Rules (12/9/2009 20:45:20)
The Rules of the DF Q&A Area
All Universal Forum Rules relating to posting behavior apply!
These should be the first thing you read when you join the forums. They apply everywhere; this means that any behavior prohibited by the Universal Rules is prohibited in this forum. This means no flaming, no trolling, no spamming your signature or emoticons, and no mentioning hacking. Period.
This is DF Question and Answer forum so any thread posted to discuss a topic belongs in the DragonFable General Discussion forum. The DF Q&A forum is not for discussion, so once a question has been answered you should not continue to post in its thread.
No Duplicate Topics
If you have a question, please search the forum to see if someone had it first. If there is already a thread about your topic, please read it first to see if the replies answer your question.
Thread titles MUST relate to the question being asked. If your thread title is something along the lines of "help!" or "????" it will be seen as spam and removed.
Commonly asked questions.
Your question has possibly been asked before. If it has been asked enough, you'll probably find the answer in =DF= Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ). Please - before posting your question, have a look through that topic. It's in easy to understand sections, with either answers or links to answers that will help you. If you are having trouble finding the answer to your question in the FAQ, press CTRL and F / Command and F together to search the thread.
While duplicate topics are not permitted, please do not post in someone else's thread with your own questions. If your issue is not addressed by any existing threads, please use the [image]http://forums2.battleon.com/f/image/blue/post.gif[/image] and post your own thread. If you see a thread that has been hijacked do not post in it, wait for an AK to delete it.
No Game Account Questions
If there is something wrong with your DF game account, please use the DragonFable Help Pages. No one on the forums can help you with any game account issues, so please do not post about them in this forum.
Begging for Membership, or an upgrade to any of the other AE games is not permitted. Do NOT do it at all, not in PMs, not in threads. There are no contests for which an upgrade is a prize, either. It only encourages begging.
No Spam / Mini-modding
This forum is for DF-related questions ONLY; please be sure to use the appropriate forum for your topic. If you have found a bug, please use the DragonFable Bugs forum. For discussion of the game, please use the DragonFable General Discussion forum. Anything regarding AExtras belongs in the AExtras forum. If you see someone posting spam, please do not reply to it. Mini-modding is also against the rules, and replying to spam just creates more spam. If you find a post or a thread that breaks the rules, please PM one of the DF Q&A ArchKnights.
Use your Resources
The DF Encyclopedia is a very helpful and important resource. Please search it before posting to ask questions here. This includes questions that are very clearly explained in cutscenes or by talking to NPC's. Skipping them to quickly finish something isn't always the best choice. Make sure to watch a cutscene, or read an NPC's dialog before asking a question about an area.
No Farming Questions.
These are questions such as "where can i get a lot of gold quick" "where is a good place to farm" "how can I level up fast?" The Guides forum has a couple of topics on the 'best' farming spots.
No Hacking Accusations!
This is stated in the Universal Rules but it needs to be said again. Do NOT post in the DF Q&A with any hacking accusations about anyone. It is not allowed. This includes any questions about a player's equips, name, skills, classes, armors, or anything else that has a staff member's name in the item's name or after it. Contact a Forum Moderator from this list if you would like to report someone. Do not post about them.
No Equipment Comparison Questions
If you are wanting to compare two or more items or see which item(s) is best for your current or future build then the DragonFable Equipment Comparison is the place.
Battle Strategy questions.
Yes, there is a forum for this, with many existing strategy topics for a variety of opponents. It's (funnily enough) the =DF= Battle Strategy forum. You need to look for existing topics first, and if there's nothing there for your monster, you MUST use the template in the rules topic there. That's so people can help you most effectively.
Character Advice or Character Suggestion Questions
When asking for character advice or suggestions please offer as much helpful information as you can to help those giving advice / suggestions. The more information provided the better the help will be.
Formats are suggested for use when asking for character advice to provide extra information for those that are giving the advice.

Please remember that we were all new once; new to the forums and new to the games. Responding to questions with kindness and understanding is not a request, it is a demand.

Any instances of discourteous replies that flame or troll another user will also be met with consequences including official warnings.
