READ FIRST - Primordus Visions Forum Guidelines
Always use the search button before posting a new thread to see if your idea has been suggested before.
2. Posting a Thread
Primordus Visions, like Sardelac Sanitarium before it, is a forum dedicated to the ideas of Guru users. Please be sure that when you are creating a new thread in this forum, you have a good idea of what you wish to suggest for Guild Wars 2, and are ready to put some time into writing about this idea so that other posters can get a good feel of what you are suggesting (and respond to it with their own thoughts in a similarly detailed manner).
2a. Posting Similar Ideas
If your idea is a slight change of another suggestion that's already been suggested, don't post a new thread on it, post it in the existing thread and continue the discussion over the general idea.
3. Use Relevant Thread Titles.
Make sure your thread titles list your idea. Don't post threads with vague titles like "Greatest Suggestion Yet" when only in your post do you discuss your suggestion. Make sure your thread title states your idea, to keep things organized and less confusing.
4. Do Not Bump Threads for no Reason
The practice of posting simple 'bumps' to threads when nobody is responding is discouraged here, and threads seen being 'bumped' without good reason and nothing new to add, will have the offending post deleted, or may be closed. If you are going to 'bump' a thread, do so after a reasonable amount of time, and let your 'bump' post contribute something to the thread rather than simply taking the thread up to the top of the forum.
5. Post One Idea Per Thread
Do not post "A Few Ideas" threads. If you have more than one idea ---first double check with the search button and the index thread to make sure they're fresh suggestions, and create a separate thread for each one with a relevant title.
6. Post constructively
If you like, or dislike an idea, please give reasons why. A minimum character limit has been put in place to help encourage this, and will be enforced by moderators as they see fit. Discussions in threads outwith the topic of the thread will, in most cases, lead to post deletion, or complete thread derailment may result in closure.
6a. Quoting the OP
To put it simply, please do not do this unless you are responding to a very specific and detailed portion of the opening post of the thread. If you are replying to a thread for the first time and are not quoting a previous poster's assessment of the OP's idea, it is automatically assumed that you are replying to the OP itself, and thus you need not quote it.
7. Reporting Bad Posts
If you feel a post breaks the rules, is inappropriate, or is an advertising thread, please use the Report button to bring it to the attention of the Primordus Visions Moderators. Do Not use it as a reason to post spam.
DO NOT REPORT a post of someone simply disagreeing with you. DO NOT REPORT someone you hate because you hate them. And DO NOT REPORT a post multiple times. Only once is enough. Each time you report a post, an email is sent to all the relevant moderators. There is no need to spam us. Someone will get to it in time. And if nothing is done about it, consider that we may not have agreed with you on the subject. Perhaps we found nothing wrong with the post you reported.
8. Bumping Old Threads - "Thread Necromancers"
Bumping old threads in Primordus Visions, with the aim to renew the discussion, or adding to old discussion is allowed providing the idea posed in the thread has not already been implemented. If you feel someone has bumped a thread unnecessarily, please report the thread. Do Not begin posting messages "heckling" people as Thread Necromancers - this is considered spam and will be deleted.
9. The 12-Character Rule
There is a minimum requirement of 12-Characters per post on this forum. This is in place to discourage users from simply posting "/signed" or "/notsigned". Do Not try to bypass this rule by posting symbols, numbers, or offtopic spam. All it takes is one or two sentences explaining why you do or do not agree with the idea posed in the thread. If threads become inundated with people wanting to simply sign an idea, a Poll may be added. If you use the poll, there is no requirement for you to make a post telling us what you selected on the poll. Polls are put up to try to discourage the posting of spam, or +1 posts.
10. "It'll Never Happen!" "Too Much Effort!"
Primordus Moderators would like to remind you that this is a place for discussion, and to share ideas, regardless of how likely they are to be implemented, effort required to implement them, or how long implementing them would take.
RULES AGAINST /SIGNED SPAM POSTS WILL BE STRICTLY ENFORCED. SPAM POSTS WILL BE DELETED ON THE SPOT AND YOU WILL FACE THE WRATH OF THE FORUM MODERATORS SHOULD YOU CHOOSE NOT TO FOLLOW THESE GUIDELINES.
