~ Guidelines and Feedback - Heroes 7 Falcon's Last Flight




Falcon's Last Flight is the place to post and discuss news about the upcoming release Might and Magic: Heroes 7.

Altar of Wishes forum will be the place to discuss ideas and wishes for core version of or expansions for Might and Magic: Heroes 7 as well as future chapters of the game.

Please read the Newcomer's Guide below, if you're new to the forum and want to know how to behave.

Also use this thread for forum feedback.

1. The 10 Laws on "How to behave in the Heroes Community"

1. Read the Code Of Conduct which explains what's allowed and (especially) what's not allowed in the forum.
2. Respect your fellow forumers, and talk to them in a nice manner.
3. Before you post, make sure what you want to say and state it as clearly as possible to avoid confusion.
4. Don't resurrect old and dead topics if you haven't got anything new to add to them (i.e. read through them and think twice).
5. Before posting a new Topic, make sure there are no other topics covering the same subjects.
6. Instead of making a new topic for a small question, rather use the already existant Questions Topic.
7. When posting a new Topic, make sure the title is discriptive as to what the topic is about. This helps other members to easily decide whether they want to read through it or not.
8. When you quote a topic with a lot of pictures or other load-heavy contents, please delete these from the original message.
9. Respect the wishes of the Moderators. If you feel that they are unreasonable, leave a message in this feedback thread, or send them an instant message to solve the issue. There will often be an explanation that you might not know of.
10. Be positive.


2. What are the yellow and red stars?

For a full description of these features, I refer to the Community FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions). Here is a short review:

Yellow stars correspond to the member's post count. Members start with no yellow stars and can get up to seven yellow stars. Each yellow star amount has a rank associated with it, see section 2.1.
  Yellow stars come automatically, and don't show anything about the quality of the work of the poster, only the amount.

Red Stars correspond to the quality of the member's posts. Posts of particular outstanding quality (top 2 % in forum) will be awarded a Quality bonus and will be marked with a Red Star to show other forumers where to look for quality work. The number of red stars below your fellow forumers avatars correspond to their total number of Quality bonuses (or QP's) (see section 2.3 for more).
  Members with less than 2 red stars in their status will have received quality penalties for breaking the Code of Cundoct (see above). For effects of red stars, read below.


2.1 How do I get/lose yellow stars?

As mentioned above, you get yellow stars by posting. Yellow stars depend on your post count as follows:

  1-20 posts: No yellow stars. Rank: Tavern Dweller.
  > 20 posts: 1 yellow star. Rank: Hired Hero.
  > 50 posts: 2 yellow stars. Rank: Adventuring Hero.
  > 120 posts: 3 yellow stars. Rank: Known Hero.
  > 300 posts: 4 yellow stars. Rank: Famous Hero.
  > 800 posts: 5 yellow stars. Rank: Supreme Hero.
  > 2000 posts: 6 yellow stars. Rank: Legendary Hero.
  > 6000 posts: 7 yellow stars. Rank: Undefeatable Hero.


Posts refer to post count. Post count is affected by the following things:
  - If you send in a post and the previous post in that thread was not your own, then your post count is increased by 1.
  - If you send in a post and the previous post in the topic is your own, then your post count stays the same.
  - If you send in a post and the two previous posts in the topic are your own, then your post count is reduced by 3.
NOTE: If you've made a reply to a thread, and want to make a new one then you can edit your post to avoid the penalty. To Edit a post you must log in using the user name you had when you made the post. The "Edit Post" link will then appear at the end of each post you've made.
  Trouble-shooting tip if the link does not appear even though you are logged in: When you log in the user name is not case sensitive. However, the "Edit Post" link does not appear if you are logged in with another capitalization of the user name than the one you used when you made the post.


2.2 Yellow stars and custom Avatar.

In order to get a custom Avatar you need two yellow stars. Each member can ask for only one custom Avatar. The size of the Avatar is restricted to 2kB. More information on Avatars and Avatar reservation is in the FAQ.

The option to reserve an Avatar becomes available when you have two yellow stars when you edit your Profile. (If you do not have two yellow stars then the option to reserve an Avatar will not appear when you edit the profile.)


2.3 How do I get red stars (quality points)?

The forum guidelines says that quality points should be awarded to the 2% top posts. Red stars will earn you a new Prefix as follows:

  0-2 QP's: 2 red stars. Prefix: No rank.
  3-7 QP's: 3 red stars. Prefix: Promising.
  8-14 QP's: 4 red stars. Prefix: Responsible.
  15-25 QP's: 5 red stars. Prefix: Honorable.
  25-50 QP's: 6 red stars. Prefix: Admirable.
   > 50 QP's: 7 red stars. Prefix: Praiseworthy.


It should be noticed that quality is subjective and the moderator reserves the right to judge what is good quality. Therefore, quality points is usually something which you will not get with any predictability unless a post is outstanding.

Getting quality points is not only a matter of posting things which has a good content, but it's also about avoiding things that are breaches of the code of conduct. Most minor breaches of the code of conduct will not result in penalties.
  NOTE: Moderators are overall good at keeping notes and remembering the good things you've done along with the bad things.


2.4 Benefits with red stars.

Three red stars removes flood-protect when editing.
Four red stars removes your flood-protect.
Five red stars allows you to rate topics in the forum.


3. Falcon's Last Flight

3.1 Which topics belong to this Forum?

The following topics are on-topic for the Falcon's Last Flight:
- News about Might and Magic Heroes 7.
- Discussions about the game, including in-game experiences or more general aspects of the game once game or beta is released.
- Note that discussion about wishes for future editions of the game belong to the Altar of Wishes, although the boundary between these two fora can be difficult to define precisely.


4. How do I search for existing topics?

You can search the Heroes Community using the HC Search Engine, where you will be able to see whether certain topics have been discussed before.

The main reason for this is that the forum currently has no way to merge two threads, so creating a duplicate topic will place very similar discussion in two different threads and will make it harder to find things in the forum.

Speaking of red stars, this would be a good place to nominate posts that you believe deserve one. I will be honest with you, I have trouble keeping up with the crazy amount of posts when my work and real life issues monopolize the amount of my free time. I may have missed some good posts or simply not yet taken the time to evaluate others that caught by eye. And I know all too well how disappointing this can be to members who who have contributed their fair share in the community and not received a qp. I've been there.

So be a good sport and bring those posts in my attention, whether you think they are funny, insightful, smart or otherwise leave you with a good impression. Let's promote some quality discussion

General guideline and behaviour update: Please take notice that following the Sylvan vote, there have been several people overstepping the boundaries of what is allowed to call other members on the board, both as individuals and as groups. We will not tolerate members talking bad about other members just because they gave another vote in the Sylvan voting (or any other vote for that regard) and posts violating this may be subject to penalizing and deletion without further warning.

I would like to nominate Protolisk's post (about angels, faceless and strides) near the bottom of the page in the following thread: Striders - Yea or nay? for a +QP. (I do not know how to focus the link on his comment)
I think it is a worthy post.

Moderator note: This is a general warning. There has been widespread complaints over JeremiahEmo's posts on the subject of female units. The Moderator Team has therefore requested that he does not bring up this subject up again.

However this decree goes both ways. We will not tolerate direct provocations against any member, and that also goes when the member is Jeremiah. Please notice that direct baiting will be considered within the boundaries of this.

From this point, further posts going against these rules will be penalized unwarned.

I post a complain about GenyaArikado for being repeatedly provocative and offensive towards other forum members.
Also, the animated gif spamming is a pain to my eyes while browsing the forums.

What is the 4 red star benefit of "Removes your flood protect" supposed to do? Even though I have 4 red stars to my name now, I still see this message:

Quote:
Heroes Community Overload Protection Active.
This page will display automatically in a few seconds.


when I open a number of different forum posts (middle mouse button in FireFox, opens the link in a new tab) or when I go berserk on my F5 button to refresh the page. I was under the impression that the 4 red star benefit was regarding this particular flood protect?

Edit: Or is the benefit that you can make as many new posts as you like? I guess that would make sense, but I don't recall ever having run into that threshold myself .

I think the 3-star benefit removes the daily limit on  your posts. 4-star benefit removes the frequency you can make new posts and edit posts I believe.
