Welcome, Heroes - Please Read!

General Discussion
Welcome to the Overwatch forum! We encourage you to use this forum to discuss your experiences while playing Overwatch.

Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy, so we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct and Guidelines before posting.
Before you begin posting we’d like you to understand a few things about how to post here, what’s appropriate to post, as well as how to best use these forums.

Please read and be aware of the Code of Conduct and the forum posting guidelines. These will ensure that we can all enjoy discussing games with one another.

Please search before you post. Making a new thread on an existing subject can result in your thread being deleted or, if you continue to re-post the same content, the loss of your forum privileges for spamming.

Follow and talk to us on Twitter and on Facebook for game news and information.

In addition to the forum Code of Conduct, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow—While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, they cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked.

  • The Overwatch forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Overwatch.
  • Topics irrelevant to Overwatch or Blizzard Entertainment are subject to deletion.

Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, and/or non-standard symbols, etc.
Let your post stand on its own merit.

Using the words "Blizzard," "Blue," or any community team members' names in a thread topic is frowned upon.
Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject.

Posting "First" or IBTL ("in before lock") constitutes as spamming.
Don't create posts to call out that you achieved a specific reply in a thread.

Do not "bump" posts.
The act of posting simply to bump a thread is considered spamming.
This also includes bumping very old threads for no reason (called "necro bumping" or "necroing").

Petition posts are frowned upon.
Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion.

Do not post about locked or deleted threads.
Posts that are moderated have a reason behind the moderation. It's up to you to read the forum Code of Conduct and these guidelines to determine what you did wrong, learn from your mistake, and attempt to post again without breaking any rules.
