IN ADDITION TO OUR USER AGREEMENT HERE ARE SOME BASIC RULES AND GUIDELINES ALL USERS ARE EXPECTED TO FOLLOW WHEN USING DOTAFIRE
Members are permitted to open one account only. Members found to be operating more than one account may have any or all accounts removed at the discretion of DOTAFire. If you are having trouble accessing your account reset your password or contact our support before creating a new account.
Plagiarism is strictly forbidden on guides and other content. If you are using a picture or video that is not your own please link back to the source. Spamming to make your guide longer is also against the rules.
Each member is expected to vote in good faith and without bias casting a single vote on any active build on the site. Working around site fail safes, bribing, falsifying or otherwise "fixing" voting on any build, comment, or other content is strictly forbidden. You get 1 vote and 1 vote only, use it wisely.
DOTAFire has a system called “+rep” to award its users for being helpful. You are not allowed to ask for +rep in any way. It is also against the rules to bribe, trade or blackmail other users for +rep.
Commercial Spam: Unauthorized advertising on DOTAFire is not allowed anywhere. Related banners and links may be used in signatures and posts at the discretion of DOTAFire. Should any material be deemed unacceptable it must be removed immediately.
Self Advertising: Do not post links or otherwise advertise your builds or other content. There are pages and lists across the site to show your creations to those who want to visit them. Sharing your content in relevant conversation is one thing, dropping links and otherwise advertising around the site in an attempt to get more visits is another. Don't make us create a Dunce topic, leave the spam alone.
Clan & Guild Advertisement: Clan advertisement falls under unauthorized advertising and is prohibited. While DOTAFire is all about Dota 2, it is not an advertisement board. However, you are welcome to place links and graphics about your clan in your forum signature.
Spam Comments: Comments such as “lol”, “:)” and “…” that are completely unconstructive are considered spam. Replying to a thread simply to “bump” it to the top of the forum is also considered spam.
Post threads in the most appropriate subforum, and keep discussion on topic. If you have a new topic to discuss, create your own thread. This site is a place for fans of Dota 2 to share battle strategy and discuss all things Dota 2. There is an off topic forum for anything that isn't related to Dota 2. Keep all the off topic stuff there.
While DOTAFire prides ourselves in letting you be you, there is always a line you can't cross. Excessive aggression, constant harassment, stalking or any other type of bullying behavior is not allowed. Speak your mind, but lets talk how we do in person, when someone can reach over the table and grab you by the collar :)
We will carefully review each situation individually, but if we determine that the sum of your behavior is having a negative impact within the community, you may quickly find yourself on the outside of it, at DOTAFire's discretion.
No adult or illegal material of any kind including, but not limited to, video, pictures, links, discussion, or access information will be allowed anywhere on the site.
We don't like rule dodgers and as such reserve the right to ban anyone for any reason. Bans may be permanent or temporary depending on the infraction and your history in the community or any of the MOBAFire Network communities.
