§1) General good behaviour
Abusive, racist, sexist, homophobic comments (or any other type of bigots), personal attacks and name calling are not allowed either on the board or through PM's. If you receive a PM that you find offensive, harrasing or spamming please forward it to a administrator who will investigate.
Flaming and spamming in forum is forbitten, its ok to dig up old topic, but do not spam on it, this might lead to temporarily ban.
Flame-baiting is also not tolerated, flame-baiting is making a post to someone that is obviously intended to provoke.
§2) Follow the instructions of the forum staff (Admins and mods)
If or when forum staff member asks you to do something or to stop doing something, please follow their instructions. If you have questions/complaints/comments about the actions of forum staff please PM them to a administrator, we will do our utmost to reply to any that we receive. Do not make own topic for your request.
§3) Discussions about copy protection or copying, backing-up, hacking, cracking or reverse engineering of any of BI's products or the products of any other developer will not be tolerated and such discussions will be deleted immediately. Any breach of this rule may result in the poster no longer having access to the forum.
Advertising commercial products
Do not advertise anything commercial product/service in forum without prior permission from administrator. Such activity will lead to permanent ban.
Advertising anything without releation to ArmA, OFP, OFP2
Advertising anything that is not releated on games and their mods is forbidden. If you feel like FWW2 community should know about it, post PM prior to it to admin. He will decide is it proper content for forums. If you get permission post it on Free-for-All. Failure on this will result permanent ban without warning.
§5) Limitation of images
No posting of pictures containing porn, real killing, mutilations, wounds, carnage, and other disgusting/explicit or otherwise improper images. This also includes links to pages that contain such images. Pictures you hotlink in forums should not exceed 150Kb.
§6) Post in the right forum and only once. Double posting and bumping.
Please ensure you make new topics in the correct forum, if you're unsure of which forum to post in feel free to ask from forum staff. Do not duplicate your topic, if forum doesn't seem to work, wait a while and try to reload forum root to see did it actually come there already, even if it didn't appear so. Posting your random non-releated topic/reply in General Discussion is not proper thing to do, we have Free-for-All forum section for that.
Avoid double posting, however if longer period has passed from your last post you may repost incase there is something to add. Useless topic bumping is also forbidden.
§7) Leave OFP era topics alone
There is very little point to dig up topics from OFP times, rather make new topic than use them. They serve very little use to anybody anymore and should be concidered only as archives.
§8) No duplicate accounts
Having several accounts is strictly forbidden. If you want to change your username, contact administrator. Incase you forget your password, contact administrator or post in Free-for-All forum where you don't need to log in and you will be posted new password.

Typing in all caps equals according to standard net etiquette to yelling. It is also difficult reading such posts. Same goes with colors, do not use them unless you want to point something out that is extremely important.
