The long running unofficial bonus code thread over in the Gameplay section has been a source of much angst and the cause of far too many petty reports.

 

So we are moving it over here and starting afresh with some basic ground rules.

 

Normal forum rules apply though bear in mind this is the off topic section so topics other than World of Tanks may be discussed but be wary of rule 4.

 

Quote

4. Don’t spam!

Avoid:

  • Repeatedly posting the same content
  • Posting the same content in multiple threads
  • Multi-posting (creating several posts in a row within a short span of time)
  • Posting irrelevant content
  • Referral links, advertisements, etc.
  • Advertising for product sales of any kind
  • Advertising for services offered by individuals or companies
  • Excessive capitalization, use of fonts, colours or images
  • Begging
  • Bumping posts (unless it is expressly allowed in the sub-section)
  • Abusing the "Reported Post" feature by sending false alarms or nonsensical messages

 

I realise many of you followed the old thread and if someone said "thank you" it cause you some inconvenience.  I suggest that you use the like button if you want to thank someone for a code but we are not going to sanction people for being polite.

 

We may find we have to clarify or modify some of these ground rules so do check back often.

 

If you want an official source of codes then there is a dedicated channel on the official Discord server https://discord.gg/world-of-tanks

 

The success of this thread depends on you.

 

P.S. I know some of you won't like this decision, it has not been taken lightly and is the result of much discussion between moderators and CMs.

How is game related content off topic? The problem I see with this thread is that nobody will look here, why would they since they are looking for game related codes? And as such, will just result in players posting their codes in the usual gameplay section.

 

You might say "Oh well you seemed to find this tread just fine didn't you so there's no problem" I didn't find this thread though I just clicked on the link attached in the old codes thread currently floating in the first page of gameplay which therefore caught my attention but that thread is now locked so will soon pass down along the digestive tract of gameplay into anonymity.

Just remember the luddites who play this game that don't use discord and rely only on this forum for official info and codes.

Makes no sense to have this thread in off topic

Short version - i highly disagree with what you just did by moving it to Off topic.

 

Long version/explanation - 80% of english speaking forum users were checking  , are checking AND will check Gameplay section ONLY. That section is heart and soul ( as corrupted and black as it may be ) of WGEU english speaking community. So what you did - you moved it to offtopic , where 3-5% of ppl check for news, and with that, you have effectively made this thread more or less invisible for majority of people.

 

This may come as a shock to you, WG staff , but you have a long lasting tradition of trying to fix things which dont require fixing, and ignore things that DO need fixing. Let me explain - several times you have been politely asked to PIN THIS THREAD on top of Gameplay section. You didnt do it, for whatever reason you have. So people were somewhat forced to BUMP the thread to made it visible on 1st page of Gameplay section. Research shows that average user visits links from Google search only on FIRST page of results. Same is with average english speaking player that visits Gameplay section.

 

GG WP WGEU.

They can use Discord through the same web browser they use for the forum.

Even if someone uses it through the browser it still will be Discord. That's the next big data failure in many possible ways. Either they got "hacked" or they start selling your data.

Can we have this thread pinned to gameplay section instead? Whether it's off-topic or not codes are a gameplay section tradition.

This is not the right section for this,deserves to be in gameplay section.

Bad job with moving it to off-topic

Can't please all the people all of the time.  This solves a lot of the problems the other tread had.

What does it solve? What´s the reason for moving it here?

Can you at least try to please some of the people, some of the time? What exactly was the problem with the old thread? Who wants the thread here exactly? Is it just convenient for the mods? Do you actually prefer people opening up new threads asking for codes rather than keeping it contained in one thread?

 

This seems like a heavy-handed solution to a problem nobody was having. I echo the request made earlier to have this thread moved to the general section and pinned.

There was no problems earlier, this just really does not deserve to be here.

You have been gently pleased 8+ times,and no,you still act a hero.
