Star Wars Galaxies INFO | Forum Rules | (read before you post)

First before I start, let me say:

Welcome to
SWGalaxies.Net


These are the forums for the LucasArts Entertainment Company game
Star Wars Galaxies.


On these forums there are some people who you can contact if you any problems or questions come up.
Juztyn: He is our Administrator. He is the big boss of the SWGalaxies.net site and these forums.
Wraith 8: (thats me ) He is the first moderator of the forums.
Jan Gaarni: He is our second moderator of the forums.


Before you go off and post in the forums, please note that we do have a set of rules to keep by.
We would like to keep the forums as they are. A cool place to post, and people that have fun.
Not a place to swear at eachother and insult eachother.
So that is why we have the following set of simple rules.

1. Dont Flame.
2. Dont spam.
3. Do not go off topic all the time.
4. Keep the right threads in the right forum.
5. Dont tick of mods.
6. Use the edit button.
7. Don't post exploits.


Ill explain the little rules one by one.

1. Dont Flame.
Flame. this means Insults
Do NOT insult people.
Also, do NOT provoke people.
There are a lot of people who are very sensitive about certain things.
Later on I will tell you a way to make sure we all know what you mean.

2. Dont Spam
With this I dont mean the meat.



With this i mean senceless posts. Posts that have absolutly nothing to do with the topic of the thread.
Now it is ok to sometimes post a funny thing. But dont open threads that dont say anything at all.
Now please also, elaborate on your post. Do not always say one tiny word. make sentences.
Please say a bit more than just 'ok' or a smilie like ''.
Iknhaton, the Administrator of the X-wing alliance and Rogue Squadron forums, once told me:
It is not the quantity of your posts. It is the quality of them.
I totaly agree with him.

3. Do not go off topic all the time.
This goes along with the 'Dont spam' rule. Ofcourse you can go off topic once in a while. But dont drag the whole thread down with your posts.

4. keep the right threads in the right forum.
Its important that you keep the right threads in the right forum.
on the General forums we have 5 different forums. they all stand for something. keep the topic of your thread in the right forum. ill explain them later on.
If you do not keep the right threads in the right forums, I will move them to the correct one.

5. Dont tick of mods.
Now Im a mod, but when I made these set of rules, I wasnt one. Still it is a good rule.
I once saw a fight between a Moderator and a member of the Lucas Forums, and believe me that the member lost big time.
Now I know we arent all powerfull and always right. But dont do things that would upset others or moderators.

6. Use the edit button.
Like the title says, use the edit button.
If you double post, or triple post, use it to delete your posts. Clean up after yourself. It's not our job to clean up after you, it's our job to make sure you do it yourself.
Also, if you have anything to add to a post, and noones posted before you and it's within an hour since you submitted the previous post, use the edit button, unless you know it will be a long post.
If you don't know where the edit button is located, take a look at this picture:
!Picture not available at the moment! Sorry!

7. Don't post exploits.
This means exactly what it says.
Any violations will result in either deletion of content, or deletion of thread/post (Mod's preference).
The same goes for posting links to sites which purpose is to spread exploits, or ask for links to such sites.
Spamming these exploit sites can result in a ban from these forums.
!NOTE! Posting about 3rd party macro tools also falls under this catagory.


I hope these rules are clear to you all. Please keep by them.

(this thread will be used for a lot of information. ill post regular update on info. so check this thread more than once.)

6. Recruitment Forums
Here a PA can advertise their group of players and try to win over some members. people can also check for a good PA.

7. Private Forums
These forums can only be seen by Administrators, super moderators and moderators. The moderators of the PA forums can also view them. They are used for the discussion of issues that should stay a secret or needs to be secret for some time.

I hope this is very clear to you.

The Importance of Smilies

With smilies you can make your posts prettier, or use them to express yourselfs, or use them to make a post seem different as what you said.

And that last point is extremely important.
Its important for my first rule i set up. Dont Flame.
A while back we had a slight flame war going on around here. And our own moderator, Jan Gaarni, posted a very good point about the use of smilies.

Ill start with some examples:

To make your posts prettier:
Quote:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
JUZTYN
To express yourselfs:
Quote:
Come on guys
Quote:
Thats funny
to make a post seem different as what you said:

Now i already said that this one is the most important. Ill post an example and see how you react to it.
Quote:
Your a real jerk you know that
Quote:
You Idiot
See? you know, when i typed this, you would feel offended. but if you use smilies with it, it will look tottaly different.
Quote:
Your a real jerk, you know that
Quote:
You Idiot
You see? now it looks tottaly different and it doesnt look offending.

So my advice to you all is:
Use smilies with your posts. cause that way other readers will be able to know in what sence you mean it.

SWG character Transfer

Originally posted by Jan Gaarni

Want to switch servers, but don't like the idea of starting all over?
Fear not.

You can now ask the SWG Team to transfer your character to another server/galaxy. No need to start all over.

Just head here and fill in the application.

You need to log in, so make sure you log in with the account for the character you wish to transfer.

NOTE: If you already have a character on the server you want to transfer your main or whatnot to, then you need to delete the char that are already there as you cannot have multiple chars on the same server, unless it's a different account.Originally posted by Jan Gaarni

No game cards for Europe

Originally posted by DarthMaulUK

Due to the cost of bringing in Game cards and other payment options for Europe, Activision (Who publish SW Galaxies outside of the USA) will NOT be launching game cards at this time.

If the situation should change, i will let you all know.

If you want to purchase Game Cards, a well established and respected Import company can supply these REGION FREE gaming cards for players wishing to play Galaxies without the need for a credit card.

I have used this company several times and infact ordered my original Galaxies game from them. Alot of people at work use them as well. However, if there is a mix up from time you time, you cant blame me and order at your own risk

Gaming cards are 31.99 and Import Madness accept Switch, Solo and other major credit/debit cards. It will show the cost first in US Dollars then covert it into UK pounds

These gaming cards will buy you 60 days worth of play.

Full Details

Hope this helps all of those wishing to play without the need for a credit card.
