The purpose of this forum is for players to discuss various topics on FINAL FANTASY XI with other players.

Please carefully read and adhere to the following rules and FINAL FANTASY XI Forum Guidelines(North America/UK) before posting.

General Forum Rules:
  • Please keep all posts on topic. Making off topic posts will only cause confusion and miscommunication. When you create a new thread, please do not mix multiple unrelated topics into a single thread. Instead, please create an individual thread based on each topic.
  • Please use the search function placed at the top of the forum to see if your questions have already been answered. If there happens to be a thread with similar topics, please divert your questions to that particular thread.
  • On certain discussion topics, there may be instances when the development and operation teams will ask you to place designated tags.
  • Please try to write in paragraphs that are both easy to read and understand.
  • Since you cannot see each other on the forum, your words may be taken the wrong way or may have a negative emotional affect on others. Please try to maintain a polite manner and review your entry before you post.
  • Please show respect and consideration to other users. Users of this forum come from various backgrounds, where their ages, sex, occupations and residential areas differ. Thus when you are making a post or reading the posts made by others, please respect and give thought to their backgrounds. This also applies to those who are new to the wonderful world of MMORPGs. Everyone has to start somewhere and those first few steps into an unknown realm can be quite daunting for some. Lend a helping hand to a novice and who knows? Someday he or she may repay the favor tenfold!
  • Please refrain from using ambiguous titles for new threads. A post with an ambiguous title such as “HELP! It’s an emergency!!” will attract far less relevant replies in comparison to titles that give a clear description of the thread.
  • Please do not post false, fabricated and/or fictitious information. It is unconstructive and will only confuse others. Please be careful with what you post and keep in mind that your words can affect others more than you may expect.
  • Please do not make a simple post just for the purpose of “bumping” a thread.
  • Please do not post any personal information about yourself or anyone else in the forum. Even if you know each other in real life, please use the character name or user name instead. If you witness any unwanted divulgence of personal information, ask the poster to remove it or report it by using the “Report Post” feature.
    * Personal information can be defined as any data that explicitly reveals the real-world identity of an individual, and can include the following: name, home address, age, birthday, telephone or cell phone number, e-mail address, etc. Personal information can also be consisted of a combination of information that can identify an individual.
  • Square Enix will not be held responsible for any issues encountered when visiting any posted links to external sites. Visiting these sites will be at your own risk.
  • Square Enix may either edit or delete posts that are deemed improper.
  • If you happen to find a post that may be violating the FINAL FANTASY XI User Agreement and/or the FINAL FANTASY XI Forum Guidelines, you may report the post by using the “Report Post” feature placed at the bottom of each post. Square Enix will take proper action based on the reported details but please understand that details of the investigation and action taken cannot be disclosed.
