Seriously.
It never turns out well, and honestly it's starting to get annoying.

It's unoriginal as fuck too. Doesn't matter the context, if it involves men in brown shirts and a man with a funny little tash, it's been done already and someone got banned for it, starting with Hitler himself and continued to this day in pretty much every internet forum ever.

You're not the first bloke to think the Imperium (or the Tau, or Chaos, or any other freaking army in the game) have some common themes with the Third Reich, you're not the first to think it's cute and cheeky to do a 40k army up in historical colors, and you're not the first person who thought clever and intelligent to slather on a swastika just so you can get all haughty when people fail to recognize its ancient, non-Arian roots and meanings to the symbol. It's not cute or smart, it's just stupid and unoriginal.

If you have some burning need to discuss the pros and cons of the universally recognized Bad Guys of WW2, go and find a nice Historical/Political forum to post it on. Even if it;s somehow 40k related, we just don't want to hear it.
No offense Galahad but I must reply, Im guessing this is directed towards me, if not I am pretty sure that I am at least the catalyst. I try to avoid all discussion about the swastikas. One thing I have to say though, in my defense, I never tried to tell people it was about it "ancient roots" and I never got haughty about them if someone got offended, in fact I tried to preemptively stop any conflict before it started (we see how well that worked). I am hoping this doesn't mean I can't post pics of my models any longer. The Gallery is one of the main attractions to the site for me.

Actually it's been something of a hot issue with the mod staff for some time. Recent (and by recent, I mean more than a month ago when I made the rule, closed your thread and posted the rule in your thread) threads just brought it back up and finally broke the fuhrer's back, so to speak.

Every time someone talks about the nazis it turns into a flame war, because 99% of the time, it's some twit trying to get attention. If you're not a twit trying to get attention, then I'm sorry, but they already ruined it for you. Actually, Hitler already ruined it for you, but that's neither here nor there.

This wasn't aimed at anyone in specific...trust me, we don't need to make up new rules just to target someone specific. That'd be both unfair and a huge waste of time, since if we're out to single someone out we'd just ban them and laugh about it. Making up rules to justify it just makes us look weak, instead of distant and terrifying

If you want to continue posting your models in the gallery, that's fine (Unless we start getting complaints, which we haven't yet), we just don't want it spilling over into the forums. If that means you can't post nazi related fluff about your army, or ask which colors work best with a swastika motif, then I'm afraid that's just the way it is.

The only way to head off a flame war about whether or not it's ok to invoke the Nazis is to simply not invoke the Nazis.

Yeah, except all the ones about post quality, spamming and advertising.
Fuck off.

New rule:

Threads About Gold Farming/Selling, Power Leveling or other shady Bullshit Regarding Warhammer Online or any other online game Will NOT Be Tolerated!

These sites always violate the terms of use of your chosen videogame and more often than not are fronts for scammers, hackers and account thieves. Heresy Online is not responsible for any damage to your computer, game account or bank accounts resulting from someone being stupid, lazy and greedy enough to click a link to one of those sites.

If you see anyone posting an ad for such a site, asking about specific ones or linking to them in any way, shape or form, report them immediately. I don't care if it looks like an innocent newbie asking if I-Steal-Your-Credit-Cards.com is a legit site or not. If you see a link to or name of a site offering shady services for online games, report the fuckers.

Anyone caught intentionally shilling for these sites will be banned, permanently. No warning.


The rules have been updated to include this and the adoptables prohibition

Thats a good rule. It makes sense. Ads for those sites are all over the place on the net, and we don't need any more of that. Thanks for another good, safekeeping rule guys!
