Official ZDoom Community Rules [revised May 8 2021]

We sure do have a lot of rules and guidelines threads - find them all here, and please make sure you've read them! Also, community-wide announcements (that aren't major ZDoom News) go here as well.

Press "New Topic" at the top of the subforum you need. If you don't see the button, you are not allowed to make a thread in that subforum.

Cheers, who do I have to ask for moving threads? I somehow misclicked and opened my thread in the Resources forum instead of the Gameplay mods.

In the future, simply report your own post. It will be taken care of. It might sound scary but it can be used to correct such mistakes and it won't get you into any trouble.

Ask the original author's permission. It's better to be safe than sorry. If you can't get in touch with them, you might be alright as long as you give them credit, and make sure that all of their original credits still exist.

Make a new post. Better that way, so you can provide updates more easily.

1. I know that posting warez directly in this forum is a no-no on this forum.

2. But what about posting a link in this forum which links to warez? Is that okay?
Either on purpose or through ignorance.

How does one contact an administrator after having reported a post?
Just drawing attention to item 2 going on.

I have seen your report but haven't had the time to follow it up with an investigation. I would personally treat it in a case by case basis, going mainly on intent. If the distribution of warez is completely on purpose, in a "screw copyrights, stick it to the Man" kind of way, I would probably issue warns or punishment. But around here, half the time, it's accidental, or just done out of poor understanding of etiquette. I'd sooner delete the link and say "hey could you not do that please" than go straight to the administrative action.

I haven't investigated your specific case because I'm much more frequently on my phone, on a metered connection, where I can't justify downloading just any file to investigate whether it has Warez in it. I'll bring it to the attention of my other staff and see if any of them can spare the time or bandwidth.

Hi! I don't really know if it's the right place to ask but anyway it's about "rules" so....
I'm not a very active participant of this forum but I'm a very active reader, and a lifetime player of doom!
I recently wanted to send a PM to one modder to ask him stuff about his mod but I got the following message when trying to compose PM:

"We are sorry, but you are not authorised to use this feature. You may have just registered here and may need to participate more to be able to use this feature. "

So my question is simple: What do I need to do or to achieve to unlock the PM feature on this forum?

Thanks!

You should already be able to, you're past the post limit for new users.
