CoDz Code of Conduct
Listed below is the Code of Conduct.
Please don't just read numbered points and say "I'd never advertise!" and skip over it, because there are things you may not realize are categorized as advertising, or anything else, that are and you might have already broken them. If you have any questions regarding this, please ask, and have a good time and be sure to follow the rules!
1. ADVERTISING [ADV]:
Rule: Advertising to other users inside the CoDz Forum, whether it be via a post, personal message, or profile/signature links, to buy or view any products, websites, or other service is strictly prohibited. Non-intrusive links in signatures to personal YouTube accounts may be allowed, but that is case-to-case and each will be reviewed individually.
Consequence: The infringing user’s account will be banned, as well as the IP address. Any post with the intentions of advertising will be immediately and permanently deleted.
Example: If you are a spam bot, a hired advertiser, or a desperate website/business owner, this may apply to you. Signing up and making your only post a promotion for your zombie gameplay YouTube channel is breaking the rule. However simply sending links to a fellow forum goer who wants to know where to buy a capture card is not breaking this rule, PMing your buddy a link to a funny YouTube video isn't, etc.
2. DOUBLE ACCOUNTS [DBLE]:
Rule: Creating another account when a a user already has one account on CoDz is not allowed. There is little to no need for a separate account. If you've forgotten your password and need access back to your main account, use the Forgot Password link. Should there be a logical reason outside of forgetting credentials for the double account, contact a staff member immediately with details of the situation..
Consequence: The secondary account created by the original user will be permanently banned given with evidence of double accounts. In addition, the original account held by the user will be temporarily banned as well. Using the secondary account to avoid a suspension/ban on the main account will result in both accounts being permanently banned.
Example: A user creates a double account because they've been banned. If that account matches up the original user and no case has been made to the staff about the reason for the double account, both accounts will be banned after contacting the user.
3. SPAMMING [SPAM]: Spamming is defined as many things, and all of them aren’t allowed. As a CoDz user, you should hold yourself to a high standard and use common sense when posting.
Duplicate Posts -
Rule: Creating a thread that discusses a topic that has already been brought up in another thread is generally frowned upon, as each user is responsible for finding the pre-existing thread and making their remarks there. Cross-posting violations (making more than one post of the same question/answer across multiple forums) is prohibited.
Consequence: The infringing duplicate thread will be either merged (with the original thread), locked, or deleted, depending on the situation. When dealing with two duplicate threads, the staff will sometimes exercise their own personal judgement with regard to the thread’s posts, to avoid conversations being broken up and posts losing their cohesion, as all the comments in both threads are merged and arranged by the date they were posted.
Cross-posting violations will be dealt with by deleting all cross-posted threads. Users are responsible for figuring out the appropriate section in which to post their topic. If you have any trouble you may ask any staff member for advice!
We always welcome PMs from the users!
Example: If two threads are created that both discuss the exact same element of a newly released Zombie Map trailer, they become ‘duplicate posts’, as they consist of identical, or very similar, material. However, if someone makes a thread about, for example, who they think the Pentagon Thief is, and then someone else makes a thread in which they argue that it is actually someone completely different, they would not be breaking the rule.
Moreover, if someone made a thread that came to the same conclusion as the first user’s thread did, it still wouldn’t necessarily break the rule, as long as they brought new evidence to the table (or reevaluated old evidence) while doing so. If they reach the same conclusion, then they will be merged, in which case the older thread will remain, and the newer thread will become a reply to the older post.
Post Pumping -
Rule: Any user that makes a post just to increase their own post count is considered disruptive to the community, and is interfering with the other members’ usage of the CoDz forum.
Consequence: Violations will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis - some users will be warned verbally by PM, others may receive an official warning, and posts/threads may also be deleted (which will make your post count drop again!). Repeat offenders will suffer a Permanent Ban of their account on the forum.
Example: If a user makes a post saying “I agree,” or “We know,” or something similar and they do not further the conversation or productivity of the thread, that would be grounds for deletion of the post. The specific details of post pumping are left for staff to decide case-by-case, as there are a broad range of possibilities, which are quite dependent on the circumstances.
4. FLAMING [FLAME]:
Rule: Posts, signatures, avatars, or PMs that are intended to harass, threaten, embarrass or cause the distress or discomfort to another member of the CoDz Forum Community or any other individual or entity is unacceptable. (For this reason, the emoticon known as “facepalm” has been removed from the forum.)
Consequence: In some cases, warnings may be issued, but flaming is likely to result in Permanent Banning. It is therefore advisable to always be respectful to your fellow members; this does not mean you cannot disagree with someone, but you do not need to tear a person down in order to prove your point, so be careful with sarcasm! The response “I was only joking” will not get you much sympathy.
Example: If a user says to another on the forum that they are stupid, dumb, illogical, incompetent, etc., that is an example of a user tearing another down, and is considered to be ‘flaming’. Even sarcastically saying “Wow, you’re a bright one, aren’t you..” or “Did you figure that out on your own?” would qualify as a form of harassment.
5. OFFENSIVE CONTENT [OFF]:
Rule: Using offensive language in any context is not allowed here at the CoDz Forum. We believe that our intelligent members can make their points and offer their contributions WITHOUT the necessity of vulgarities. Included in this would be racism, sexism, or any other form of discrimination that may end up causing the distress or discomfort of a user or any group in general. Along with offensive language, displaying or linking to offensive content is not allowed at CoDz. Please be sensitive towards others and how they may react to sensitive material.
Consequence: Posts, signatures, or profiles containing offensive language, content, or links will be edited and/or deleted by the Forum Moderators and Warnings will be issued as appropriate. Repeat violations of this policy may result in more severe actions, up to and including Permanent Banning.
Example: You can come up with your own examples for sensitive language, I trust we all have at least a few in our heads, but simply starring out a letter or putting a strike through the word does not excuse its usage, such as f*ck, sh*t, etc. An example of offensive content could be an avatar of the Twin Towers falling with the caption “Burn baby burn!” This is very offensive to many people, and although it may not be so to you, please respect the feelings of other users.
Examples of offensive links include Pornographic, Racial, Defamation, or any other derogatory content. If it does not pass our CoC do not link to it on our site.
6. SIGNATURES [SIG]:
Rule: A user’s signature may only be 5 lines high, 15 pixels high per line and 65 pixels wide per line. A signature must follow all of the above guidelines concerning offensive language and material, and also concerning advertising.
Consequence: If a user creates a signature that violates the above rules, they will first be contacted and asked to change their signature. If they do not comply, someone will change it for them. Particularly horrid offenses will be dealt with by staff in an appropriate manner.
Example: A “good” signature could contain a few links to some threads (as long as they follow previous rules), zombie round numbers, a small image, or something personal, such as a saying or quote. A “bad” signature would contain any annoying “flashy” .GIFs, or any content that would not comply with previous CoC rules.

Hey All, We've been doing a lot of thinking in the admin team recently, myself @Boom115 and @InfestLithium on how we continue to grow and utilise the talents that we have on the team. What do we want to achieve and what are our goals (more to come on this). Our YouTube channel and the content creators have been doing a fantastic job and we are greatful to them for the work they have been doing.

Out of the admins own pockets (most of the time). We do obviously generate Adsense money from the adverts we show but most people have an adblock in place anyway and we don't have that annoying popup asking you to disable your adblocker to view the site. We do generate money from our YouTube channel as well but there is a lot of costs involved with creators just to put a video on YouTube (mostly time). The forum software also has costs for the renewal and continued support/maintenance releases, along with added applications and plugins (not all of them are free). So we do have on the sidebar a donations option, it is as discreet as we want to make …

Hello CoDz folk! The day has been full of excitement and anticipation with our official Black Ops 3 Zombies reveal, however with the good news, as so often happens in life, must also come the bad. Today marks the end of an era for CoDz Forum, as our longest standing Moderator, Ehjookayted aka eyecntspel, or as some may know him Paolo, has retired from the CoDz Staffing team. I hope you will all join me in wishing Paolo the very best for the future of his gaming career, wherever it may take him. All jokes aside, Paolo has been an integral part of CoDz Staff for an incredible amount of time, joining the team in January 2012, a mere five months after joining the site…
Call me Kanye again, cause for another time I am late. Asche auf mein verschissenes Haupt.

Hope you are having a good or not terrible start to your December and stay healthy, ja? Wunderbar. Much love, fuck Covid and eat some Spaghettiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Hall of Fame Class of 2019 Greetings everyone. Boomy, being the bright and fast thinking meme lord of CoDz, decided recently that it was time to award some new folks with the thunderous (hint hint) colour of the Hall of Fame from CoDz. So after days and nights of thinking and battles til death we first and foremost decided to give our friends @DeathBringerZen and @GRILL the honour not only for their great contributions as staff members, but also because they always were a big part of this cosy little community. I can not express enough gratitude towards both of you. Without the Grillmeister, I'd probably would not be on this site for longer than that o…

Good morning, good afternoon, good evening to the far-reaching ranks of CODZers! I hail you with this message, and beseech thee: attend! Over the last few months, the CODZ YouTube team has been working hard to grow the CODZ Community's visibility in the YouTube sphere, with aims of bringing more attention, and passionate zombies fans to the forum and Discord discussions.

Hey CODZ! It's your friendly neighborhood GRILL here, checking in. What a viscous pandemic that has gripped our planet! It's truly in these dire times that I thank CODZ for a community that I can return to, and feel comfort to envelope myself in. To me, it honestly feels like a zombie apocalypse out there - I live in a highly effected area. How's everyone doing? Everyone washing your hands like crazy? I just needed to come here and once again acknowledge how important this place is.
No doubt you'll have noticed that we have upgraded the site and we now have a new theme, I'm sure you'll all agree it looks great and will take a little bit of getting used too. Hope you all like it, however, if you come across any bugs or such like, or something doesn't look/feel right. Please let us know below.
Did you know? You can set a custom activity stream to follow the content you want to follow, you don't have to view all activity, you can choose what you want to view, how you want to view it. So lets say you want to view just Alpha Omega topics/post, then choose the relevant options with a custom stream, save the stream and call it whatever you want "Alpha Omega" sounds like a good shout. So how do you do it? I've set a custom stream to follow staus updates, records, topics and tournaments. You can also select the other options such as show me, read status, ownership e.t.c. From within topics opt…

We have been working hard in the background doing some adjustments to the website and user experience and want to give you a little understanding of what we have done, are doing and a few did you know things.

You should all be starting to see the website speed improving, we made some changes on the server by introducing memcached again, we are also using a faster php processor mod. on top of that, the forum software now implements some speed and performance enhancements and we are now running a content delivery network service. load times should be pretty rapid and we’ll be monitoring the changes and implementing further changes if required and when needed. If you’re finding things take longer than 2 seconds to fully load, let us know and we can have a look.
Hey everyone! It's been a while since our staff has made a major announcement like this. I'd like to preface by apologizing for not being nearly as transparent as I'd like to be with these new changes. You may have seen some new things coming our way if you've been watching us closely on Twitter (and receiving our email newsletters the past few months). With this new announcement, we - myself, the staff, and our new friends - are making big changes and want everyone to know what's going on. We're happy to announce that Call of Duty Zombies is officially a part of the Collateral Network! For those out of the loop, CoDZ is now being managed not only …

Hola Compadres, Your beloved staff have come together to recognize another individual in our little pocket of the internet who has truly demonstrated a deep dedication to the forum. Not only through frequent challenging of the status quo, but also years of contributions to conversation, theory, and story telling. Webster's dictionary defines Dweller as "a person or animal that lives in or at a specified place.". I personally think this person emobodies that definition with every letter they add to this forum, but I digress. This is why we would like to congratulate @The Meh on his promotion to Dweller. Not only has he earned this spot, but he also …
