    Welcome to the official forums of RedFox Games! In order to keep the forums a pleasant place for everyone, please adhere to the following guidelines. Note that these guidelines are incorporated into the RedFox Games Account Terms of Use, located here.

    In addition to the restrictions set out in the RedFox Games Account Terms of Use, the following actions are not allowed while participating in the forums.

    We're here to have fun and to share information with each other. With so many different personalities gathered in one place, clashes are bound to happen now and then. But how one conducts oneself during these situations makes all the difference. Don't get us wrong, opinions are valued on the forums, yours and everybody else's. But please remember to respect each other and have discussions and not arguments. If you find yourself disagreeing with another member, think first and then calmly compose your words. Don't be insulting if you happen to disagree with someone, just understand that their views are different than yours. Just really treat each other how you would like to be treated.
