Excellent point!
Well said Galahad

I have actually pm'd quite a few people about it lately Katie so you should start to see some improvement sooner or later.

one thing I want is the ability to split my fire everywhere, it makes no sense that a squad of 10 guard or marines or whatever all have to fire at 1 target with everything, is the guy with the lascannon not smart enough to realize maybe he would be better off firing at the massive tank looming overhead instead of the little man no bigger than a squat running at him, or is that far too complex for the 10yr olds?

Awesome! I don't mean to tell you guys how to do your jobs (since you're doing kickass jobs anyway it'd be pointless), just pointing somethin' out.

Don't forget, you can do your part too.

I've PMed a few people myself just offering a friendly word in their ear to let them know that they'll have an easier time getting their posts answered and having their opinions taken seriously if they put more effort into making their posts readable. It seems to be working.

Just be polite and tactful and helpful and they tend to listen.

Back on the subject of profanity for a moment...

Perhaps we should have a rule that officially codifies the profanity policy to avoid people from making posts that;re nothing but pointless cursing.

Something like:
"Please keep profanity to a minimum. Though not strictly against the rules, we like to enforce a policy of mild and moderate use of adult language. We're grown-ups here, but nobody wants to read a post that's nothing but gratuitous cursing. If you habitually abuse our language policy, you will be subject to disciplinary action."

That way we know it's alright to let slip a grown-up word now and then, but we also know that it's not alright to talk like a 12 year old who just watched Clerks and wants to try out his new vocabulary.

Maybe (if it's technologically possible) implement some user-side filter, where if you don't want to see the naughty words you can opt to have them filtered on your end without forcing everyone else to see 'bleep!' or '<DELETED BY THE INQUISITION>' in the middle of their posts.

Any chance we can have the 'spelling and grammar' announcement, and my rule about personal attacks and army/playstyle bashing included in the official rule post?

I;d do it myself but <looks behind me> No cape.

Ah, cool the revision got posted. I'm bumping a sticky

A great lot of rules. May Heresy Online last for a thousand years. Or something like that.

Swearing is still fine, just so long as your posts don;t become an excuse to flex your vocabulary.
