And now for the expanded version:


Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,

Authors - without whom this site would be nothing;
Users - everyone that enjoys the game, the site and using custom interfaces;
Staff - Turbine staff, staff from other fan sites and the staff of this site

Together, these Three Rings make up our community under the sky, our "fellowship".


Seven for the Dwarf-Lords in their halls of stone,

Courtesy; Consideration; Respect; Understanding; Sensitivity; Decency; Patience

That is the way we expect you to treat each other while you are here. Debate is fine, so long as when you disagree with someone, you respond in a civilized and constructive manner. We know that not everyone will agree with everyone else, it'd be a mighty boring world if it were otherwise. However, that doesn't mean that you can't be respectful of someone else's point of view. Take the time to understand where they are coming from. Even if you still don't agree with them, they are entitled to their opinion. Keep that in mind. In short, be good to each other.

Together, these Seven Rings make up the foundations upon which we build our sites. They are the way we expect everyone to behave while they are in our halls of stone.


Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,

Unfortunately, this section is going to be long. It is a real shame that we have to spell this stuff all out, but it is a sad truth of the world today. Regardless, here it is and you will do well to heed it.

Slander

Don't come here and slam/flame anyone/thing. For example, don't come here sounding off that Blizz sucks, EQ blows, mod_author_01 should DIAF, etc and so on. None of that. You want to post things like that, take it elsewhere, there are enough other boards that cater to that type of thing. This isn't FlameVault. See the expected behavior outlined in the "seven rings".

Prejudice

You may not use our community to form or participate in groups whose ideology is based on or resembles anti-religious, anti-ethnic, anti-sexual orientation, racist, or sexist philosophies.

Do not, repeat DO NOT, make usernames / post threads that:

- Promote racial/ethnic hatred
- Are recognized as a racial/ethnic slur
- Allude to a symbol of racial/ethnic hatred
- Insultingly refer to any aspect of sexual orientation pertaining to themselves or other players
- Negatively portray any religions or religious figures
- Promote national hatred
- Are recognized as national slurs
- Allude to symbols of national hatred

Harassment

While participating in our community, you must respect the rights of others to participate in the community. To this end you may not harass, defraud, threaten or cause distress and/or unwanted attention to other members. This includes, but is not limited to:

Name-calling or other insults
Posting with the intent of provoking another user or users
Flaming another user for their spelling or grammar
Bringing disagreements with someone into unrelated threads

You may not use sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially, nationally or ethnically offensive language. You may not deliberately misspell, or substitute punctuation or other special characters in, filtered words to circumvent the filter.

Discussion of religious or political topics is prohibited on the forums.

You may not post the personally identifiable information of another user, including but not limited to their real name, address, phone number, email address, or links to personal websites without the express consent of that user.

You may not re-post Private Messages on the forums without the express consent of the sender.

Do not, repeat DO NOT, make usernames / post threads that:

- Refer to extreme and/or violent sexual acts
- Refer to extremely violent real life actions
- Are Real-Life Threats
- Are an inappropriate reference to human anatomy or bodily functions
- Are pornographic in nature
- Are Obscene/Vulgar
- Include Inappropriate language
- Are Harassing or Defamatory
- Insultingly refer to other characters, players, groups of people or LotROInterface or Turbine employees

Spam

If you have something to discuss, a question to ask, advice to give, that's fine. The occasional silly post/joke/whatever in Chit Chat forum is fine. But posting random crap for no reason other than to post random crap ... just don't do it.

You may not market, promote, advertise or solicit products or services for sale or trade within the LotROI forums. You may not post advertisements for websites that are not directly related to The Lord of the Rings Online. You may not post links to the secondary RMT (real-money trade) market.

You may not distribute or spotlight sexually explicit, harmful, threatening, abusive, defamatory, obscene, hateful, racially, nationally, or ethnically offensive content. This includes posting links to sites which contain any of the above.

You may not start multiple new threads to post the same thing, or make short posts for the sole purpose of moving your thread up the forums ("bumping") or adding to your post count.

Copyright Violations

You may not upload or transmit copyrighted material, without the express consent of the copyright holder.

Do not upload other people's interfaces. That is a violation of their copyright. Only the original authors may upload to our site.

Do not download from our site to host somewhere else. Again, this is a violation of the interface authors' copyright. You may not redistribute without expression permission from the authors.

Authors - Do not use another's code without permission from, and credit given to, the original author. Also, do not use copyright images without permission from, and credit given to, the original artist. To fail to do so is a violation of their copyright.

Violation of LotROI's ToS or CoC

Users must not viloate, or promote the violation of, LotROI's Terms of Service or Code of Conduct.

Violation of Turbine's ToS, EULA or CoC

Users must not violate, or promote the violation of, Turbine’s Terms of Service, End User License Agreements or Codes of Conduct.

Impersonating Turbine or LotROI staff

You may not impersonate any Turbine, Inc. employee or LotROI staff member, past or present. This includes the use or modification of the Turbine or LotROI logo as a forums avatar.

Violation of Local, National or International Law - You may not violate, nor promote the violation of, any local, state/provincial, national, or international laws or regulations.

(Some of the above is taken from this thread on the Turbine forums, as further expansion on our rules. All rules required by Turbine will be upheld here as well.)

Together, these Nine Rings make up the things that are absolutely forbidden on our site and will cause you to be doomed to die (banned). Break any of those rules and you will (for lesser infractions) be warned. Greater, or repeated lesser infractions after your warning, will result in a permanent ban from the site.


One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,

No, I'm not saying Turbine is the Dark Lord. I am saying that they have the "One Ring". The one ring that rules us, the one ring that finds us, the one ring that brings us all and in the [game] binds us.

In the land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

One Ring to rule them, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.


Lord of the Rings Online is our Land [of Mordor].


Also, Signatures:

We know a lot of you like to have graphic signatures. We are going to ask that if you wish to have a graphic signature that you make them not exceeding the following dimensions and size limit.

Max Width = 465 pixels
Max Height = 150 pixels
Max File size = 30kb

Anything exceeding these limits will be removed without notice.

The reason for this is tall signatures just take up way to much vertical space making it more difficult to read threads. The reason for the width limit is so all posts fit well on a 800x600 screen. The file size limit is for those who have slower connections.

*Please refrain from using "huge" or "oversized" text, especially in conjunction with larger pictures

Signatures that advertise a product or service can and will result in the owner’s account being permanently banned.

(more to be added as necessary)

This is a quote from thread (that has been deleted) that I think needs addressing:

Quote:
Um Im surprised this was even allowed on this site myself. Might as well be a goldselling site cause thats what it is. Hey everybody lets buy our way to endgame at while we are at it lets ruin the economy and cause fair players to pay out the nose cause someone decided to advertise a goldselling site where some guy sitting in his basement makes millions of dollars off idiots who have no real concern for community or the possibility of running a wonderful game into the ground. Is this site going to allow this? If so Ill frequent another forum that believes in fair play,as well as alot of others who will see this! Do the right thing LOTR Interface!
If you read the site rules above, you'll know that this type of thing isn't allowed on the site. If you've used our other sites before, you'll know that we have never allowed crap like this on our sites. As soon as we become aware of a thread like this, we immediately ban the poster, ban their IP address, censor their website addy/email addy so that it can't be used again and delete the thread. What we need the community to do is to not respond to these jerks, but to simply use the Report Post icon () that is on the top right of every post, so that we are aware of it even faster. Responding to them simply keeps their thread bumped. Don't give them the air time guys. Just report them and move on, knowing full well that it'll be gone just as fast as we are aware of it.

To suggest that we'd allow it to stay on the site is rather unfair.

Yeha i got a earful form Dolby, and Im really really sorry about that. My anger seems to get the best of me at times and I tend to just rip on these guys when i see them, sorry if LOTRInterface got caught in the crossfire. Please except my apology and know that I sorry for even assuming you guys would allow this. Im loving the community here and to know exactly where you guys all stand on this issue is a breath of fresh air as most side with these cheat enablers and help them with their businesses. Thank you for the wonderful opportunity to be apart of this wonderful community.

On a side note, I have managed to figure out how to skin now and Im hooked! Its awesome and looking to learning more in the months to come. Thanks and know that Im truely sorry for my actions and will never ever happen again!
