All Rules for the general forum as outlined in the user agreement for registering with Paradox are in force in this forum.

Forum Rules.

Pay particular attention to the following :

  • You will respect the rights of other users to have their own opinions.
  • You will not use expressions that are considered foul, vulgar, sexually harassing, racially offensive or in any way discriminatory. These expressions include, but are not limited to, ethnic slurs, hate speech and religious epithets. Whether an expression fits under this definition will be determined by Paradox staff at the time.
  • You will not make posts that are inflammatory with the perceived intent to rile people up (i.e. "trolling" and "flaming" are prohibited).
  • You will not flood or post on the forums redundant, empty, or nonsensical posts or advertisements as determined by Paradox staff (i.e. no "spamming").
The following additional rules apply for this forum:

  • As with Victoria, there will not be any kind of "extermination of minorities" or "ethnic cleansing" in Victoria 2. Thus, there is no need to ask about their presence in the game. People who continue to do so will be warned and, if they persist, banned.
  • There has been a dramatic increase in the number of threads that are evolving into long-winded, technical historical debates regarding specific political, social or economic events, mostly relating to the Victoria period but more than occasionally involving conditions after the Victoria game-time period. And more than occasionally, these discussions have been turning into personal soapbox diatribes for some posters to grind axes towards either certain historical targets or, worse, against fellow posters who share alternative opinions.

    While a bit of historical discussion is going to be expected in a forum like this, I would remind posters that this forum is focused primarily on gameplay, what it will be like, what features will be included, and once the game is released, how gameplay works and strategies for successful gameplay.

    Therefore please keep the technical discussion of historical questions, economic theory, social theory and the like for posting on either the Off Topic or History forums in the Fun Forum section of the Paradox Website. This forum should not be seeing dozens of posts debating military strategy of specific generals, or long analayses of economic theory, or massive rehashing of ideological opinions. That is what the fun forums are for, and for the effectiveness of this forum to do its primary task, please use the fun forums for the long debates that have in some ways distracted from the purpose of the Victoria 2 forum.
  • Unless it relates to actual gameplay mechanics as planned or implemented in Victoria 2, the discussion regarding whether the current generation of Paradox games have the right balance of historical content vs gameplay flexibility is beyond the scope of this forum and should be taken to a general forum such as the Off Topic forum.
  • Threads/posts touching the subject of Israel - Palestine, or anything remotely linked to Arab-Jews relationship are forbidden.

Further additions to the rules that will apply specifically to this forum will be posted as they are needed.

With the imminent release of Victoria II please be aware that a proper display of decorum and polite discourse to be maintained in this forum. To ensure that goal, the following notices are being made now and will be rigourously enforced :

Pure spam posting, that is posts that have nothing to do with the original topic of a given thread or do not add any content of substance to the topic under discussion will not be tolerated in this forum, especially now as the expected inrush of new forum members, as at other times of new title release, will likely increase the strain on the forum servers. The forum moderators and Paradox administrators have the final decision regarding what is considerded spam and what is considered acceptable, and those who do post spam will be assesed infraction points upon their accounts.

Paradox welcomes and actively encourages constructive criticism when it comes to the discussion of gameplay features and design. However, those who offer criticism should do so in a polite manner designed to encourage discussion on how to address differences on how gameplay functions should operate that may arise between player understanding and developer design. It is expected that a respectful tone will be maintained by posters when raising their points for discussion, and any post that disrespects or outright insults members of the Paradox staff, the moderators of this forum or other posters who have a difference of opinion on a given topic will result in the relevant infractions being assigned to the poster of the offensive material. The forum moderators and Paradox administrators have the final decision regarding whether a post is in their opinion disrespectul or insulting.

In the end the utility of this forum is as much based on how each and every one of us utilizes the forum and behaves when interacting with others. A forum that becomes toxic because of the obnoxious behavior of a certain fraction of posters loses its utility as both a channel of communication and as a platform for interchange between players. Those posters who feel the need to bring a Jerry Springer Show-mentality to this forum should consider finding another forum in which to engage their bile, as such behavior will not be tolerated in this forum during this period of commercial release of this long-awaited title.
