Forum Guidelines and BBCode Tags in General Discussion


    At Dotabuff we've found the forums to be a great home for content and exciting discussion--involving in-game strategy, eSports gossip, improving MMR, and match feedback. At the same time, we also see our forums as a constructive environment, a friendly gathering place, where people can talk comfortably and build connections in the Dota community. Communities work best when people can treat each other with respect and courtesy. We would love to maintain this positive environment, and with that said, there are a few guidelines and rules of conduct to promote good discussion.

    Please take a moment to read through the Code of Conduct for the forums.

    If you come across a user who is violating this code of conduct, you can help by reporting the player via the button on their profile. We love to see great discussion on the forums, so lets all work together to make this a positive community. Thanks!
