This is one of those things that I really shouldn’t have to tell you, but in the interest of making it absolutely crystal clear, here we go:
You may not represent or imply, in public or private, that you have any relationship with or endorsement by Harmonix, MTV, or the Rock Band Network.
If we find out that you have attempted to mislead a band, artist, label, or really anyone (and we will find out. We know people):
It is appropriate to mention that you are enthusiastic member of the community, that you are the head of a successful authoring house, that you are a Scorpio with a fiery passion for Latin Rock, or whatever. We love that you guys are so enthusiastic about the program. We also understand that misunderstandings may happen, and we certainly aren’t going to punish anyone for innocent mistakes. But we would also like you to go out of your way to make sure that those mistakes don’t happen.
- The first offense will result in a 30 day ban from creators.rockband.com and/or these forums.
- Any subsequent offense will result in a permanent ban from creators.
- There will be no refunds for the XNA subscription that you purchased.
- In serious cases we will discuss the issue with Microsoft, and they may also take action which could include revoking your XNA membership, banning your Gamertag, or even banning your console from Xbox Live.
A recent unfortunate incident has led to our first 30 day ban. This was not a case of a misunderstanding. The creator in question referred to “our games” and mentioned that he was emailing “on behalf of Harmonix.” Just in case you are scoring along at home he did NOT work for Harmonix. This is totally unacceptable.
Thank you for reading. You may now return to your regularly scheduled authoring of teh ROCK.
