1C Company Official Forum Rules
1C Company Official Forum Rules
1C Company forum is a service for users of the entertainment software published by 1C Company ("Gamers"), which gives the opportunity to discuss our computer games and other 1C related topics. The forum is divided into several sections, each having its own main subject that is stated in the section's name. There is also a section titled "1C Games", which is especially for discussing topics that do not contradict these rules, yet do not fit the description of any other section.
The 1C Company forum is not an official means of providing technical support service. The Technical Issues section on the forum is the place where users can discuss troubleshooting and technical problems with each other though. All questions regarding usage of entertainment software published by 1C Company should be addressed directly to the 1C technical support service (support at 1cpublishing.eu)
The 1C Company forum is post moderated, meaning the information posted is not read or edited beforehand, although forum administrators may edit or delete submitted posts.
The Moderators are peacekeepers of the forum. They have the right to edit posts, delete them and lock topics without prior warning. If you want to know the reason for being banned from a section you can ask the forum administrator via email (admin at 1cpublishing.eu), contact the moderator that banned you or the Global moderator via PM message.
