Site Rules

1.0 Violations

These are GameBanana's official Posting Rules that apply to all threads, comments, messages, posts, and private messages in addition to the Terms of Service. If you believe someone has broken a rule or have any questions, contact a moderator.

1.1 Language

English only on Submissions. GameBanana is an English based site and we cannot moderate and therefore cannot accept non-English content (This excludes posting on your profile, studios or clubs where you are free to post in any language you wish. We also have certain language embassies where you can post "Readables" submissions in those select languages). Try your best to use good grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, etc when posting and especially when making threads. Do not post in ALL CAPS, Title Caps, use excessive!!!!! amounts of punctuation, or break the site's layout. Submissions with poor English may be flagged by the community or withheld by moderators.

1.2 Abuse

No discrimination, abusiveness, 'trolling' or flaming. Discrimination based on race, sex, age, sexual orientation, etc will not be tolerated. NO EXCEPTIONS. 'They started it', 'they deserved it', 'they are n00bs', etc. are not valid excuses.

1.2.1 Backseat Moderating

Let the moderators do the moderating. Backseat moderating is when people who are not moderators try to enforce the rules -- or their interpretation of the rules. If you see a person breaking the rules, take advantage of the Report/Flag buttons or simply ignore the offensive content.

1.3 Unconstructive Feedback

No negative feedback without explanation. If you don't like something or strongly disagree with someone, fine. But make sure you provide reasons for your opinions and constructive feedback whenever possible. Also, make sure not to stray into a violation of rule 1.2.

1.4 Warez

No warez talk of any kind. That includes but is not limited to requests for CD keys, discussing illegal downloads of software, music, movies, passwords for websites, and pretty much anything that could get GameBanana into legal trouble. When in doubt about this rule, ask a moderator or don't post. If it might be illegal, test the limits of copyright law somewhere else. For more information consult GameBanana's Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) Policy or the Porting Whitelist.

1.5 Advertising

Non-commercial advertising is allowed, under certain circumstances. See the User Advertising wiki for more details.

1.6 Graphic Content

No shock material or pornography. This includes but is not limited to graphic images and videos designed to severely disturb or scare the viewer. Private parts of the body must be covered with clothing and no sexual acts may be displayed.

1.7 Spam

No spam. Spam is defined as posts, threads, or other messages that do not contribute to a discussion or forum. If you have doubts about whether your submission would contribute consult a moderator before submitting it. Please avoid posting several related submissions soon after one another as this is considered spam. Instead please pack related content together into one submission.

3.0 Autoplaying Music/Videos

All music players must be started manually. No autoplaying music is allowed.

4.0 Section Specific Rules

In addition to these site-wide rules there are section rules that must be followed:

    actually i've never seen the word "flaming" before, what it means ?

    It's basically insulting another user repeatedly, and constantly arguing for the sake of giving ot a piece of your mind... In a exaggerated but actually serious way.

    "Flaming" is essentially throwing a fit in your posts and insulting one or more people for absolutely no reason at all. For the sake of example, let's say you said something completely harmless with the intention of helping someone improve their submission, and that same person you were trying to help just so happened to take it as an insult or as you trying to call their work garbage; if they were to make a flaming post, they'd probably say something along the lines of "fuk you asshole I worked hard on this you fking fagit if you don't like it then don't fking look at it you mingebag cuntwaffle" as their response. That would be considered flaming, and reporting the post would be perfectly reasonable. If the user happens to have a rather nasty habit of flaming other users and they have their posts reported constantly, that could eventually result in a gag from posting, if not an outright ban from the site.

    I hope that helps.

    What about racism?

    Right here:

    1.2 Abuse

    No discrimination, abusiveness, 'trolling' or flaming. Discrimination based on race, sex, age, sexual orientation, etc will not be tolerated. NO EXCEPTIONS. 'They started it', 'they deserved it', 'they are n00bs', etc. are not valid excuses.

    You're a bit late there, buddy.
