    About Us


    DiabloFans.com and all its associated pages belong to the Curse Network. We are a fansite for Blizzard's Diablo franchise, primarily focused on the upcoming title Diablo III.



    General Information



    If you have any questions regarding reporting posts, posting images, the rules, the posting ranks, the different staff members, or just about anything else, please read over this post first. It has been meticulously written to address the most common issues members ask about. If you have any further questions, please post a thread in the Site Suggestions and Questions forum.



    Reporting Posts

    Use the Report Post Feature:

    Administrators, managers, and the moderation team try to patrol as much of the boards as possible, but can't read it all. If you find a post that is inappropriate, report it and they will look into it as quickly as possible. It's simple and keeps you out of flame wars and out of trouble.


    Do not, under any circumstances, publicly discuss moderation about threads, members, social groups, visitor messages, albums, and/or blogs in any public venue.


    For more information on the report-a-post function, please read here.



    Infractions

    Each violation will add one or more infraction points to your account's history. Infraction points last three months*, after which they expire**. If you reach certain levels, an automatic ban will take place. You can view your current infraction level in your profile.



    • Warnings: No Penalty
    • 1 Point: No Penalty
    • 2 Points: One Day Ban
    • 3 Points: Two Day Ban
    • 4 Points: Five Day Ban
    • 5 Points: 1 Month Ban
    • 6 Points: 2 Month Ban
    • 7+ Points: Permanent Ban

    * Infractions may be given longer or shorter durations depending on the situation.


    ** When an infraction expires, it is no longer counted in your active infraction total. It will, however, always remain in your history.

    Staff Guidelines


    These are the behavior guidelines we intend to hold our staff members to. If they violate these, please contact the staff member's manager or an administrator. If you are interested in being a Staff member, please understand that you will be held to stricter standards than the rest of the community.



    • Staff members are official representatives of DiabloFans and DiabloWiki and should act accordingly. For this reason, staff members must never be found threatening the integrity of the staff team by breaking any of our regular rules (see [thread link="rules"]above[/thread link]).
    • Since staff members are representatives of the site they are entitled the respect that comes with that responsibility. If any user shows flagrant disregard or disrespect for a moderator performing their duties please let an administrator know.
    • Staff members should never carry out personal agendas with their privileges. If you feel there is a conflict of interest, please report the post or contact a manager or administrator.
    • Reported Posts should be responded to as promptly as possible. Staff members should try to follow reported problems back to where they started and take the appropriate actions.

    The site has been updated to the latest version of vBulletin.

    As with all installations this can come with some possible "side-effects." Currently everything seems on track and running smoothly, but if you notice something that seems wrong or straight up broken please let us know by creating a thread in Site Feedback.

    Thanks for your patience.

    Jeeezus!! I do like most of the changes, but the DII & LOD forum definitely need subforums. PvP & PvM, Builds, and General would be acceptable for me.

    The new buttons are uber sexy, but the bar at the top with "Home, Blizztracker, forums, etc" should be changed to match the new buttons. Also, I think the current forum theme should include some red in it to match the red in the buttons. Other than that, AWESOMENESS!!!

    As for the whole post thing, lol, I gained only about 70 posts. XD That's right, I hate spam.
    Cool - thanks for the feedback suggestions! We're still discussing what's the best course of action with the subforums.

    Isn't it already in the OP from the Twitter Tracker? It says update at 10 PST. Dunno if that was you or not, Sixen was just on a tiny bit ago. Unless you did it, of course :P
    If I understand your question correctly - that was their stance from last night. This one is an update we just received from the Blizz community reps saying that it will NOT be in vegas.

    Sorry to break everyone's heart, but we just received an update from Blizzard:


    Official Blizzard Quote:



    We haven't announced any details regarding our next BlizzCon -- though we can confirm that it will not be held in Las Vegas -- so we recommend everyone refrain from making any BlizzCon-related travel plans at this time.

    Just a suggestion for the smileys.

    Is it possible to make it work like the wiki images, so you upload something and choose a name (for example sparta) that will make it appear when you type :sparta:, like this:

    Unfortunately not at the user level. But feel free to suggest smilies you would like to see.

    We'll get on this soon :P

    That looks good. Some suggestions for the tables is if its possible to customize the tables for different colors, borders, shading, etc...
    I can look into getting something working for that, however, I don't want to overcomplicate the tags for everyone. You can use any bbcode you would like inside of the table, so making font colors, bold, smilies, etc.

    Alright I've added in a


    Here is another table that shows some other options you can use:

    [ table="head;width=400px;sort=2d;autonum=1;sortable=false" ]name|number|phone
    Seth|24557|Verizon Droid
    Rapture|578|Apple iPhone
    Someone Else|123123|Crummy FlipPhone
    Sixen|2301|HTC Tilt
    [ /table ]

    This is an example of a presorted table. Each new line is a new row. The option table="head" means that the first will act as headers. The option width=400px sets the width of the table to 400 pixels. The option sort=2a sets the table to sort by the second column (number) in ascending order. 2d would set to descending. autonum=1 automatically numbers the rows, you can also use autonum=a or autonum=A to list in order. sortable=false disables live sorting.

    OUTPUT:
    [table="head;width=400px;sort=2a;autonum=1;sortable=false"]name|number|phone
    Seth|24557|Verizon Droid
    Rapture|578|Apple iPhone
    Someone Else|123123|Crummy FlipPhone
    Sixen|2301|HTC Tilt
    [/table]
    Still working with this stuff, so let me know if you guys run in to any issues or problems. Have fun :)
    bbcode, great suggestion.

    [ table ]Row 124557This is some dummy information
    Row 2578AAA should make this sort to the top when you click "Information"
    Row 3123123Z will sort to the bottom when you click on "information"
    [ /table ]

    This is the most basic table you can make. Each new line is a new row in the table. Columns are separated by the pipe ( ) character.

    OUTPUT:
    Row 1
    24557This is some dummy information
    Row 2578AAA should make this sort to the top when you click "Information"
    Row 3123123Z will sort to the bottom when you click on "information"

    [ table="head" ]Header 1NumberInformation
    Row 124557This is some dummy information
    Row 2578AAA should make this sort to the top when you click "Information"
    Row 3123123Z will sort to the bottom when you click on "information"
    [ /table ]

    This is an example of a live sortable table (click on the headers to sort). The option table="head" means that the first will act as headers.

    OUTPUT:
    [table="head"]Header 1NumberInformation
    Row 124557This is some dummy information
    Row 2578AAA should make this sort to the top when you click "Information"
    Row 3123123Z will sort to the bottom when you click on "information"
