Forum Terms of Service

The moderators of this forum will try hard to edit or remove reprehensible messages as soon as possible. However, it is impossible for them to review all the messages. You thus admit that all the messages posted on this forum express the sight and opinion of their respective authors and not those of the moderators or the Webmaster (except messages posted by them) and consequently, they cannot be held responsible of the discussions.

This forum uses cookies to store information on your computer. These cookies will not contain any personal information; they are only used to improve comfort while browsing. The address e-mail is only used in order to confirm the details of your registration as your password (and also to send you back your password if you forget it).

- Aggressive or slanderous messages, as well as personal insults and critics, the coarseness and vulgarities, and more generally any message contravening the French laws are prohibited.
- Messages who promote - or evoke - illegal practices are prohibited.
- If you post information who come from another site
, look first if the site in question doesn't forbid it. Show the address of the site in question in order to respect the work of their administrators!
- Please post your messages only once. The repetitions are unpleasant and useless!
- Please make an effort on grammar and spelling. SMS-style language (ex: r u sk8ing?) is not advised!

Any message contravening the listing above will be edited or removed without additional notice or justification within deadlines which will depend on the availability of the moderators. Any abuse will involve the cancellation of the registration. Internet is neither an anonymous space, nor a space of no-right! We reserve ourselves the possibility of informing your access provider and/or the legal authorities of any malevolent behavior. An IP address of each poster is recorded in order to help us to make you respect these conditions.

In short, the rules here are really quite simple...

Advertising and soliciting other members to buy, sell, or view any products or services through the COD Zombie forums is strictly prohibited and will result in the immediate banning of your account. Topics/Posts that contain advertisements will be permanently deleted.

Topics/Posts that are just complete nonsense or duplicates of topics/posts that have been made before will be deleted or in some truly inadvertent cases may simply be Locked or Merged. As a member of the COD Zombie, you should use good common sense when posting. Before making a new Topic, make sure that you have performed a thorough SEARCH in order to ensure that a Topic/Post hasn't been made previously. Spamming has a serious impact on the members that are thoughtfully contributing to this community, therefore it will be dealt with first by Warnings (which will result in point deductions from your account) and in cases where Warnings are not effective, your account will be Permanently Banned.

3. NO FLAMING: Posts that are knowingly made to harass, threaten, embarrass or cause the distress or discomfort upon another Member of the COD HQ Community or any other individual or entity will be dealt with extremely harshly. In some cases, Warnings may be issued, but Flaming is likely to result in Permanent Banning. It is therefore advisable to always be respectful of your fellow Members; this does not mean you cannot disagree with someone, but you do not need to tear a person down in order to prove your point.

4. NO OFFENSIVE LANGUAGE: Using offensive language (the bad words that we all know so well), in any context, is not allowed here at COD Zombie Forum. We believe that our intelligent members can make their points and offer their contributions WITHOUT the necessity of vulgarities. Posts containing offensive language will be edited and/or deleted by the Forum Moderators and Warnings will be issued as appropriate. Repeat violations of this policy may result in more severe actions, up to and including Permanent Banning.

Topics/posts that contain or exhibit any form of racism, whether direct or indirect, overt or implied shall immediately be deleted or edited by the COD Zombie Forum Moderators as deemed appropriate. Violations of this policy may result in Permanent Banning without Warning.

Topics/Posts made that serve no other purpose than to increase the Member's own post count are considered disruptive to the community and interfere with other Member's usage of COD Zombie forums. Violations will be dealt with through deletion of the thread and issuance of Warning(s). Repeat offenses of this policy will result in Permanent Banning of the violator's account.

7. NO CROSS-POSTING: Making several posts of the same question across multiple forums is not allowed. It is up to each individual user to select the forum which most appropriately fits the Topic/Post. If you are unsure which forum to use, send a Private Message to one of the Forum Moderators. Cross-posting violations will be dealt with by deleting all cross-posted threads, and leaving in place only the relevant post.

Topics/Posts that contain offsite URL links to content must fall within the scope of standard established by this CODE OF CONDUCT. Any URL links or other references to offsite content provided in Topics/Posts by Members that contain Pornographic, Racial, Offensive Language, Defamation, or any other derogatory content are strictly forbidden. Posts containing offending URL links will be edited and/or deleted by the Forum Moderators and Warnings will be issued as appropriate. Repeat violations of this policy may result in more severe actions, up to and including Permanent Banning.

What should I do if I see a violation of the COD Zombie Forum CODE OF CONDUCT?

REPORT IT! Every post on every thread contains a "Report This Post" icon. It is absolutely the DUTY of every Member who discovers any and all acts in the COD Zombie forums that are in violation of this CODE OF CONDUCT to alert the Forum Moderators. The Forum Moderators are greatly concerned with maintaining order and high standards for our Members, but we need your help! So, if you come across any violations of the CODE OF CONDUCT, simply report it. Your reports will be kept confidential.

What happens if I violate the COD Zombie Forum CODE OF CONDUCT?

Depending on the severity of the violation, a number of actions can be taken by the COD Zombie Forum Moderators. At a bare minimum, our Forum Moderators have been given the tools to EDIT, DELETE, MERGE, and MOVE offending Topics/Posts. In addition, our Warning System has been tied into the COD HQ points system. Therefore, each time you receive a Warning for violation of our CODE OF CONDUCT, you are in fact receiving DEMERITS that will reduce your overall POINT ACCUMULATED. It is even possible that Warnings received could demote your RANK achieved (assuming that the points deductions received take you below the minimum threshold for your RANK. For more severe offenses, the COD Zombie Forum Moderators have been empowered to strip Member's of their RANKS and ACCUMULATED POINTS on either a temporary or permanent basis.

For the less interested or involved COD Zombie Forum Members (or for the TROLLs that make their appearances from time to time), Forum Moderators also have the ability to Permanently "Ban" a given user name or an offending IP Address (or both).

Enjoy the site, and have fun.

Thanks from the Staff
