Hawk Wargames reserves the right to decide on the relevant action required based on the rules that were broken and the severity of the incident.

General Etiquette

Before posting a New Topic, please ensure you search the Forum for similar posts. Keep Topics on their original subject; if you wish to discuss a new subject, please start a New Topic.
Members may disagree on certain subjects, if this happens and you do not feel the Topic can continue without breaching Forum Rules, please leave the Topic and do not continue to post there.
If you receive Private Message that is in breach of the Forum Rules, please report this to a Moderator.
If a user has posted a link to external content (not based within the Hawk Wargames Forum, Website or Shop) be aware that Hawk Wargames takes no responsibility for the content this may link to.
We appreciate that English may not be the first language of some posters but from previous experience we have learned that questions to the forum are far more likely to generate a good response if the question has been well thought out and presented.
We also appreciate that some people may have genuine difficulties with spelling and punctuation, consequently we ask our existing members who cannot comment politely to be understanding to leave the moderation of the forum to the Moderators.
Please do not use pictures or other graphics in your signature. Likewise, please do not use offensive pictures in your avatar, and please no animated ones either.
And finally, the Hawk Wargames Community exists so that members can air their views on our games; discuss topics, share information and debate ideas. We welcome and encourage constructive feedback about our products, whether the feedback is positive or negative and whether it is through the Community or direct to us. However, the Community is not the place for unconstructive criticism or compliant about any companies, people or products and such posts will be removed.
Note: The Forum Rules and Etiquette are subject to change.
