The "modification" (also further referred as "mod") is a file, or combination of files, related to WoWs project, that interacts directly or indirectly with game client (client's files), and/or that alters its behavior in any way.


Modders group is entitled to:

  1. Create and/or publish modification.
  2. Follow the forum and modification publications rule (further referred as "Rules").
  3. Support and update their respecting published modifications.
  4. Receive the "Modder" status as the author of publication, after at least three game versions release from the moment of publication, if no Rules have been violated.
  5. The "Modder" status is given to the author of publication, even if he's not the person (or group of people) who created the modification initially.
  6. If the modification has been created by a group of people, this group should provide one representative, who'll be considered the author of publication and be held responsible for it. The representative will receive the Modder status; the rest of the group do not receive the Modder status.

Participant can be excluded from the modders group if they:

  1. Violate the Rules of modification publications.
  2. Makes intended changes into already published theme, that contains files with prohibited or malicious content.
  3. Stops support for all published modifications for more than three game versions releases.
  4. Published modification, that causes harm via files and programs after installation; installs malicious files and programs; or installs files not mentioned in modification description.
