Eimear Studios Community Rules of Conduct

We hope that you find the time you spend in Eimear Studios’ community Web sites to be useful and fun. To ensure that everyone has the best possible experience, we’ve established a few guidelines. Please take a moment to read them, and thank you for participating in the Eimear Studios community.

About E-mail Addresses and Privacy

Reducing Spam Associated with Posting to Online Communities: Due to a recent increase in “spam” (unsolicited junk mail, including advertisements and sometimes malicious mail containing viruses) sent to posters in newsgroups, Eimear Studios advises that newsgroup and community participants* should consider avoiding posting to newsgroups, forums, or other public forums using their real email address. Eimear Studios is also committed to continuing to address the issue of spam from a technological perspective.

To help avoid receiving unwanted messages (spam) in your regular e-mail account, you may not want to include your regular e-mail address when you post a question or reply to a post in a discussion group or other public forum. Instead you may want to do one of the following:

• Use a modified e-mail address: Use a different version of your e-mail address that others will understand, but that spam tools can’t automatically pick up. For example, if your actual e-mail address is “anonymous@eim-games.com”, consider using a modified e-mail address such as: “anonymous@eim-games.com.invalid”, “anonymous@REMOVE_CAPS_AND_INVALIDeim-games.com.invalid”, or “anonymous@eim-games.com.NO_SPAM”. In this case, the spam tools will send mail to an invalid e-mail address, and others will know to exclude the extra terms when they send you e-mail. When you post a question or reply to a discussion group, just enter your modified e-mail address in the appropriate box.

• Use a secondary e-mail account: Set up or use an e-mail account that is separate from your primary account for posting to discussion groups. When you post a question or reply to a discussion group, use your secondary account as your e-mail address.

Expectations of Service

Eimear Studios’ Role: Eimear Studios does not offer formal support for the communities you’ll find here. Instead, our role is to provide a platform for people who want to take advantage of the global community of Eimear Studios customers and product experts. Eimear Studios may monitor content to ensure the accuracy of the information you’ll find, but any information provided by Eimear Studios staff is offered “AS IS” with no warranties, and no rights are conferred. You assume all risk for your use.

Rules of Conduct

Appropriate Language: The purpose of our communities is to exchange technical information and expertise about Eimear Studios products. Please avoid personal attacks, slurs, and profanity in your interactions.

Relevance to Topics: Please make sure that your postings in newsgroups and forums are relevant to the subject at hand. It is normal for some topics to drift from the stated subject. However, to ensure maximum benefit for everyone, we encourage you to keep your postings as close to the subject as possible.

Advertising/Solicitation: These communities were created as a forum for providing peer-to-peer assistance related to using Eimear Studios products and services. We ask that you refrain from posting unsolicited advertisements that do not pertain directly to the intended use and purpose of the newsgroup or forum.

Confidentiality: Please keep in mind that our communities are public spaces, so don’t post anything that you don’t want the world to see. Credit card numbers, product keys, and other confidential information, including anything covered under a non-disclosure agreement (NDA), should not be posted to a newsgroup, forum, or other community.
