1.0 WoW Roleplay Gear

WoW Roleplay Gear was first conceived in December 2009, as "The Visual Roleplay Gear List", an image-based resource for roleplayers in World of Warcraft. Work began on January 1st 2010, although the site was not officially released until Autumn 2010, due to the large amount of preparation building up a database of item sets.

Following the announcement of Patch 4.3 and transmogrification, the site moved home and rebranded under its current name in Autumn 2011. Since the early days, the site has grown to encompass in excess of 1200 different articles, gear sets and roleplay related items, although the work is far from complete!

WoW Roleplay Gear is the brainchild of Ironyca and Noelani, a couple living in Denmark in reality, and Argent Dawn EU in virtuality. The aim of the project is to present an easily navigable compilation of armor in World of Warcraft.

For further information on the website, check the WoW Roleplay Gear About Page.

2.0 The WoW Factor

The WoW Factor is a weekly transmogrification event, jumping from server to server across the US and EU, awarding prizes such as gold and mounts to the finest transmogrification outfits around.

The project started as a collaboration between Keelhaul of Disenchanting Azeroth and the WoW Roleplay Gear team, in February 2012, with the intention of making live community events in which all transmog enthusiasts can participate. Events are livestreamed with commentary from the judges.

Organisation and judging of the events is conducted by Noelani and Ironyca of WoW Roleplay Gear, and Elvine, a gold-making livestreamer, who joined the team in mid-March '12. Guest judges are also invited to participate in the events, with one bring brought in each week to spice up the judging panel.

For further information on the project, check the WoW Factor page.

3.0 Forum Rules & Details

3.1 Core Rules

There are a handful of core principles which we hold on this forum, with the intent of making it an enjoyable and safe place to browse. Any violation of these rules may result in the offending user being cautioned or banned from the forum.

The principles are as follows:
1. No abusive, vulgar or discriminatory language.
2. No imitation of any WoW Roleplay Gear staff member or affiliate.
3. No posting of or linking to any pornographic of otherwise "Not Safe For Work" content.
4. No advertisement by members to anything unrelated to World of Warcraft.
5. No linking to harmful content/viruses or the use of any disguised/shortened links, such as TinyURL.

If you find an instance of these rules being broken, please click the "Report this post" button to notify the forum staff.


3.2 General Forum Guidelines

In addition to following the rules above, we encourage participants to observe the following points of etiquette when using the forum.

Whilst you will not get banned if you don't follow the guidelines (outside of exteme circumstances), moderators are likely to address these issues, so it will certainly benefit you to keep them in mind.

1. Post in English - We are unable to support posts made in other languages, as our website and its primary audience use English. Topics posted in other languages are likely to be locked.
2. Avoid creating multiple threads on the same topic - It splits up discussion and can be considered spam.
3. Where possible, avoid multiple consecutive posts - Sometimes it's relevant to make a couple of posts in succession, but generally it's better to edit your initial post with the additional information.
4. Keep signature length to a minimum - Whilst signatures are welcome, it can be irritating for somebody to read through a thread if the signatures are longer than the posts themselves. The maximum image size for a signature is 400 pixel width by 100 pixel height.


3.3 Administrators & Moderators

Moderators are individuals who have the authority to edit, delete, move and lock posts and topics in certain areas of the the forum. They are generally long-term contacts of the site founders, who have proven themselves helpful, knowledgeable and responsible. Mods can be identified by having green names.

The forum is designed and maintained by the Administrators, those with red and purple names. They have full moderation powers and oversee the running of the forum. Only the founders of WoW Roleplay Gear belong to this group.

A full list of Admins and Mods can be found on the Team page.


3.4 Wowhead Tooltips

If you would like to add a colored Wowhead link to your post, with a mouse-over function showing the item details, you can use the following bbcode and edit the parameters as necessary:
Code:
[url=http://wowheadlink][color=#hexcolorcode]Item Name[/color][/url]


For example, posting the following code...
Code:
[url=http://www.wowhead.com/item=65357][color=#1eff0e]Rainbow Generator[/color][/url]

... produces a link like this: Rainbow Generator

The hex color codes for WoW items are as follows:
Poor 9d9d9d Common ffffff Uncommon 1eff00 Rare 0070dd Epic a335ee Legendary ff8000 Heirloom e6cc80
Just edit those numbers into the code above to get the appropriate color for the item you are linking.


3.5 FAQ/Troubleshooting

Should you experience any technical issues or have any questions regarding the forum, you may find the information you need on our general FAQ.

If the FAQ does not help with your issue, you're welcome to post a topic in the Forum Info forum, or send a PM to one of the Administrators.

4.0 Gallery

4.1 Overview

The forum has an image gallery feature implemented, which allows users to upload pictures of their own transmogrification outfits to their profile, to share with the community.

Individual galleries may be viewed through a user's profile, and a searchable overview of all uploaded pictures can be found on the Gallery page.

Users may upload pictures as they please, along with any relevant description. Other forum users may rate and comment on these pictures.

A user may also link their gallery or a specific picture into a forum topic, if they so desire.

The Gallery feature is an external plugin which we have edited to our needs as best as possible. If you experience an issue with the feature, contact Noelani (contact details listed at the bottom of this thread).


4.2 Uploading Pictures

When you want to upload a picture, you can follow these steps:
1. Navigate to your User Control Panel via the Profile button at the top.
2. Select Gallery on the "Options" bar to the left.
3. Select "Manage personal albums".
4. Select "Upload Image".

The following page will allow you to upload 3 images simultaneously to a maximum size of 250KB each.

Browse to select the images you want, click continue, then you are able to name and write a descriptions for your pictures before uploading.


4.4 Editing Pictures

If you would like to edit the information for any of your images, or perhaps delete them, you can do so via the following steps:
1. Navigate to "Manage personal albums" by the same method as listed above.
2. Select "View My Gallery".
3. Click on the thumbnail of the image you wish to edit.
4. Clicking the "X" on the left side will delete the image. Clicking "Edit" will bring up a new page.

From the Edit page you can change the name and description of your image as you please.


4.4 Posting Pictures

If you'd like to include one of your pictures in a forum topic, you can add a thumbnail link by selecting the "Gallery" option at the top of the post window (near to where you apply bold and italic bbcode formatting).

Clicking the Gallery button will bring up a pop-up window, from where you can browse your own images and select "Insert image into post" to finalise your option. You can of course review how the embedded image looks in your post by selecting "Preview" at the bottom.
