And as soon as someone reports this to ZF you'll most likely be banned.
Consider it reported. Beware BuiltTOKill, these forums are a bit more intellectual than the bnet forums. (no offense to those that use both) We don't support the use of such things. Take a look over the rules or pm a moderator if you have questions about what is appropriate.

the maker of the mod has contacted blizzard, telling them of the launching of the private server, as well as saying that if they want him to shut it down he would do so immediately...blizzard has not requested that he do this. If blizzard still had a problem with it, they would have responded. Also, the individual is not stealing money from blizzard, if anything he is giving people another reason to play the game while saving blizzard the effort of making the changes themselves. Not to mention it is on blizzard's forums, so if they had a problem with it they would have issued some sort of warning.

I'm not really here to argue the fineprint, just stating that blizzard has been notified by the mod maker himself, and that they have not taken any action whatsoever indicating discontent with what the mod maker has done.

It may not be against Blizzard's rules, but it is not allowed here.
 
I didn't post that hyperlink without finding out whats going on first of all, secondly, no where in your rules and regulations does it say anything about this circumstance. So, if I am to be banned for opening a new world to the players of diablo 2 so be it, I did what I came here to do. End of story.

ive seen blizzard shut down a number of private servers , not to mention some not so nice letters to forum sites that advertise them

"3. Thou Shalt Not Advertise. We do not intend to serve as a linking service or a search engine to other sites.

3. Sites that are competitive to any of the fan sites here."

I believe the link you posted falls under this rule.

well if it is just against this forum's rules, thats a different story. I'm just saying that blizzard knows about this server which is posted on their own forums and has been up for almost 30 days now now, and has not indicated that they want it shut down. I'll stop tho if it is in fact against forum rules to post about this.

I'm just curious tho as to why, if blizzard has not spoken against this publicized server, and this server in fact bans hacks and other things this forum is against, why is it so problematic to introduce a much more enjoyable d2 experience to people that will only benefit blizzard by drawing more people to the game. I am not trying to be argumentative, just wondering.

Yea ive seen how the battle.net forums are moderated , so 30 days is nothing. As for thier lack of action , its still illegal weather they do something or not.

Advertising alternate realms is definitely against the rules here. And I can tell you for that just because Blizz hasn't gotten around to shutting this one down doesn't mean they are giving permission. Permission for something like that has to be given explicitly by Blizzard, not by their silence.

For example, it's still considered rape if the rape victim did not say no. The absence of no doesn't mean yes! However, the absence of one's legs make it hard for one to walk. To answer the question brewing in everyones mind, yes, it's hard for even mimes and werewolves to walk without legs, but only if they have been cursed by the funny hat brigade. Proven fact. Just watch CSI: Crappy Show.. Iduno! They know everything.

Many thanks for stopping by and setting the record straight. :thumbsup:
