    FFXIV: Standard Rules - Updated 2/12/16 - Read me!

    Emphasis Added on 4/19/12.
    Updated and merged on 8/15/13

    All standard BG Forum rules still apply, for reference see this thread.

    This section is for players to post small questions regarding the game as a whole. If you're familiar with the old Standard section for XI, then you should know how this area is going to work. People should be able to ask a question in this section, no matter how seemingly stupid it is, without getting their hand bitten. If you can't answer their question, then don't post.

    Also in addendum, you may make a brand new thread for something that can be answered with one post AFTER YOU HAVE DONE A SEARCH FOR SAID QUESTION. Failure to use the search function will get you slapped.

    Speculation =/= troll posts or just plain awful, awful threads. Discussing the potential of existing abilities/traits, the possible optimal ways to use them, or the ridiculous power/awful gimpness of individual jobs is all good here. If you wish to get out the word about your great ideas about how S-E should make it so that Botanist can grow a giant plant-dragon to fight their battles for them that was inspired by your 364-page FFXIV fanfic, you can post it in this section.

    Use. The. Search. Please, before starting a new thread for a specific question, attempt to find an answer to your question via the search function. If you have a very small one-shot question, please utilize the current 'Random Question' thread, which is very likely a sticky in or near the top of this forum.

    Postcount spamming to 10 posts so you can post images and URLs is NOT okay. If you have under 10 posts and feel a pressing need to post a link or picture, PM Sonomaa to request your account to be granted access to do so.


    I thought this would go without saying, but apparently it needs to be restated. I'm doing this so there won't be any tears when you get banned.

    This is the Final Fantasy XIV forum. There are rules here that must be followed. This sticky is here to inform you of those rules. there will be no excuses when they are broken.

    All standard BG Forum rules still apply, for reference see this thread.

    This forum is for general discussion of the game. Keep your flames and your trash out of the forums. Keep the discussion on this game, or you won't be discussing at all. All smaller questions can be asked in the new Standard section.

    Comparative arguments or even debates are not allowed, keep it to the game and the game only. Consider this the warning, because you won't be getting one if I see WoW vs Final Fantasy, Blizzard vs Square Enix crap.

    Derailing is going to happen, especially when the servers are down. Keep random talk to a minimum in threads, and if it's requested, move the thread back on topic. If a topic is too derailed it will be slashed up and offenders infracted.

    Trolling and intentionally starting flames is not okay. The first time it gets out of hand it's a warning, the second is a time out, the third is a vacation. If someone is obviously trolling, do not respond with return trolling/flames/garbage posts. The moderators will handle it, if you seriously take exception to something there is a 'report post' function for a reason.

    Also, also, you can use google. Type in what you are looking for followed by BlueGartr. Works like a charm.

    Speculation =/= troll posts or just plain awful, awful threads. Discussing the potential of existing abilities/traits, the possible optimal ways to use them, or the ridiculous power/awful gimpness of individual jobs is all good here. If you wish to get out the word about your great ideas about how S-E should make it so that Botanist can grow a giant plant-dragon to fight their battles for them that was inspired by your 364-page FFXIV fanfic, you can post it in this section.

    Postcount spamming to 10 posts so you can post images, URLs, and make threads is NOT okay. If you have under 10 posts and feel a pressing need to post a link or picture, or need to make a recruitment threadPM Sonomaa to request your account to be granted access to do so.

    Comparative arguments or even debates are not allowed, keep it to Final Fantasy XIV and Final Fantasy XIV only. Consider this the warning, because you won't be getting one if I see WoW vs Final Fantasy, Blizzard vs Square Enix, FFXIV vs FFXI. If you think your post is comparing Final Fantasy XIV to a game from 15 years ago then DON’T POST IT.

    Derailing is going to happen, especially when the servers are down. Keep random talk to a minimum in threads, and if it's requested, move the thread back on topic. If a topic is too derailed it will be slashed up and offenders infracted.

    Trolling and intentionally starting flames is not okay. The first time it gets out of hand it's a warning, the second is a time out, the third is a vacation. If someone is obviously trolling, do not respond with return trolling/flames/garbage posts.

    Attack the argument, not the person. Discussions and opinions are welcomed here but insulting each other is not. You can disagree without attacking each other. We’re all adults here.
