      [Please Read Before Posting Threads] What Is And Isn't General Discussion?   03/31/2016

      Tenno, Recently a lot of forum users have been posting feedback, bug and question threads about the game here in General Discussion, only to complain when community moderators or forum staff move their thread to the appropriate section.   General Discussion is not for feedback about the game, for bug reports or for help questions, we have other forum sections specifically for these things.   There are a few criteria for determining what feedback is and what general discussion is, but the two main criteria are the following: Objective - The goal of the thread Target Audience - Who is being addressed with the thread   A feedback thread's objective is affecting the game; be it through negative feedback (change is desired) or positive feedback (change is not desired). And a feedback's Target Audience is the developers; your thread is directed towards DE, they are who you are making the thread for. If either two of these criteria are met then the thread is most likely feedback (and belongs in the appropriate feedback subforum).    A general discussion thread's objective is not to affect the game, it's to hold a discussion. And the Target Audience of a general discussion thread is other players and the community, not the developers. For example, a thread titled "Which frame do you like the most and why?" would be a discussion thread, because its objective is a discussion about what players enjoy, and it's audience is other players.   Ultimately, a lot of what determines whether a thread is a feedback thread is the opening post. Although feedback threads can have discussions in them between players, this does not make it general discussion. What it boils down to is the goal of the thread and who it's addressing. It's a thread for conveying opinions to the developers, and people are bound to agree and disagree (and therefore start a discussion on said thread).   -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------   If you post something in General Discussion and find that it's no longer there, chances are it's been moved (if it was merged, we will try to notify you via private message, but sometimes when we have to merge a large number of threads we may not be able to). Here's a helpful guide for you to figure out where it might have been moved to:   Players Helping Players is the forum for when you have a question about something in the game or need help with something game-related--such as mod builds for frames/weapons, build comparisons, how to craft certain things, where to find components/mods/enemies, strategies for bosses, etc. Guides, solutions, tips and tricks can all be placed here. With hundreds of thousands of players, there's bound to be one that has experienced the same issue as you and has figured out how to solve it! PC Beta Bugs, PS4 Beta Bugs and XB1 Beta Bugs are the places for threads reporting malfunctioning parts of the game, bugs, things that have broken, et cetera (you should really make a support ticket too!). Fan Zone is the place for fan fiction, fan-sponsored contests, screenshots to share your achievements and Warframe-related video streams/Youtube channels. Fan Concepts is the place for concepts for new systems, warframes, weapons, and gameplay mechanics. PC Trading Post, PS4 Trading Post and XB1 Trading Post are for all things trading on the respective platforms. Threads looking to sell, buy, and trade go here, as well as any price checking. If you post a thread critiquing changes or content in the game, it's likely been moved to one of the Feedback Subforums, the guide to which is below.   Because feedback threads are by far the biggest offender in General Discussion, I've put together this guide on where feedback goes, breaking up and explaining the feedback subforums (Feedback forums are where the devs go for feedback regarding the game! Not General Discussion!). The list is a bit lengthy, so it's been put in spoiler tags:     So, for example, if you make a thread in General Discussion saying something like "The lore really needs work, and this is how I think it should be done" then it's probably going to get moved to the General Feedback forum. If you're dissatisfied with a recent patch or update and want to give DE a piece of your mind, the Specific Feedback associated with your platform (i.e. PC Specific Feedback or PS4 Specific feedback) is probably where it will get moved to (it may also be moved to the other feedback forums depending on what the thread is specifically about).   Wording is also very important, and your choice of description is also. This is why many people mix up feedback with discussion. In discussion, you are talking about things that are current, not commenting on how cool or disappointing they are. For example, 'What do you think is the best frame? I like Valkyr because of her focus on melee.' is General Discussion, whereas 'Valkyr is a really good frame. Her melee animations are nice, and her abilities compliment eachother well.' is feedback.     tl;dr - We have specific subforums for feedback, bug reports, helping players, fan-made stuff and so on. General Discussion is not a "catch-all" forum, and for the sake of keeping things tidy and organized we'd really appreciate it if you didn't treat it as such!   If you have any questions, comments, suggestions, please feel free to post them here or to send me or the other moderators a private message!

Founders Gifts - Some Size Information Would Be Useful

70 posts in this topic

Hi,

 

So I just received an email with a link to claim my Founders Reward - which appears to be a shirt.

 

What is not helpful is that there is absolutely zero size information in that email, or on the form page, or anywhere on the website.

 

I am in Australia, which usually means a medium shirt over here is an XXS shirt if order from America.

 

I am not saying you are all fat, but you have wierd sizing systems. (Don't even get me started about womens clothes and the $&*&*#(%& way they are sized differently in various countries)

 

In any case, you should really provide some sort of measurements or a proper sizing chart from the actual manufacturer.

 

It would absolutely suck to order a medium "to be safe" and end up with a tent-sized american lard-&#! shirt that will never ever get worn because I want a T-Shirt not a Muumuu.

 

ALSO ARE THESE MENS OR WOMANS SIZES!!! I missed this but it was just pointed out to me by my partner

 

I have also raised a support request for this issue (Request #80508) as it directly relates to the founders program.

A quick Google search yielded this info:

 

Australian Size = US Size 
-------------------------------- 
XS, S = S
 
M, L = M 
 
XL, XXL = L 
 
3XL, 4XL = XL 
 
5XL, 6XL = 2XL 
 

7XL, 8XL = 3XL


http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_convert_American_shirt_sizes_to_Australian_shirt_sizes'>Source

 

Honestly, I'm a little disappointed that they didn't go up to 3XL. Yeah, I'm a fat American. Fine. But even if I went down to my target weight, I'd still probably be an XL, at best. Small I ain't.

'Murica! I'm getting the XXL because either my fiancee will wear it like a nightgown, or it will shrink, so whatever. I agree, though, that size information would be nice.

 

Also, for the ignorant, Digital Extremes is a Canadian company. I'm not saying that you don't know that, OP. It just seems like you're under the impression it is.

Going on sizing from places like Tee-Fury and other American retailers, you all big boned, damn.

 

A "Small" from one of those places is easily a loose medium in Australia.

Which is all good, but means absolutely nothing depending on who actually manufactures the shirts

I know they are Canadian but I am assuming they will go with an American T-Shirt printer and distributer (with the actual work done in some third world sweatshop) as it will be much cheaper.

 

Canada is like Australia - they get a ridiculous markup just for being Non-American on practically everything.

I lived in Canada for a short time. I was six years old, though.

 

Anyways, yeah, you might be correct in that assumption.

I guess just contact Support. I don't think there is a way to change it...

I usually wear a Medium, but not knowing who they are going with for printing, what material the shirts are, are they preshrunk, etc makes choosing kind of difficult.

absolutely. i'm not sort've concerned. i'd love to wear this shirt. but there's a lot of important factors we need to know. 

 

especially preshunk. if it is, how much? i've still had clothing shrink over time even if it is 'preshrunk'. so i don't believe that word very much. 

 

but i don't want to say i want 'XXL' to compensate for shrinking and have it end up as a tent by accident, or the reverse, and it shrinks and can't be worn anymore.

Like OP said, even between mfrs there is a huge discrepancy in sizing. I am an XL, yet I have some shirts that are L, and some that are XXL. It really just depends on the cut. Since I am currently in Slim-Down Mode, I went ahead and got the XL and am hoping for the best!

 

GL to all!!!  Enjoy your ten... erm... T-shirts!  XD

 

EDIT: Oh, and as always... wash COLD, tumble dry LOW, or HANG dry.  ;-)

Its a free Shirt, so I'd say get the biggest size you can get. That way it can shrink, or be used as an over shirt

I'm honestly surprised that it wasn't included in the first place.

 

Oh, and my address is in Arabic. I wonder how they'll get it here... :/

I kind of realized that, but I'm slightly concerned as to how I will type out the address, lol.

 

I'll just ask my family later, oh well.
