By using this site, you automatically accept these rules.

1. 1.0 Language

GameBanana is an English-speaking website, but you may post submissions in non-English provided you prefix the submission name/title with the language, e.g a Russian thread must have a name/title beginning with "[RUS]".

2. 1.1 Grammar & Punctuation

Try your best to use good grammar, spelling, punctuation, sentence structure, etc when posting and especially when making threads and other readables. 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.

3. 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.

3.1. 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.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 1.5 Advertising

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

7. 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. We also reserve the right to remove any content that we feel is too suggestive or inappropriate for all the age groups that use the site. 

7.1. 1.6.1 NSFW Toggle

Certain content is allowed if the NSFW option on the submission is selected. See the NSFW Rules wiki for more details.

  1. NSFW submissions must use the NSFW toggle provided.
  2. Real and animated nudity is allowed but no "Sex Acts" should be shown, or implied.
  3. No depictions of under 18's (real or animated). This includes 'Lolita' content where the character is visibly under 18 no matter how old you state they are.
  4. No unnecessary closeups.
  5. No bestiality, shock images etc...
  6. Mods have discretion to remove any content that they feel is too sexual in nature or inappropriate.

8. 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 thematically related submissions soon after one another as this is considered spam. Instead please pack these themed submissions together into one submission. Submitting a lot of unrelated content soon after one another is ok and is not spam.

9. 1.8 Quality Control

No deliberately low quality or low effort submissions. We always want to be a place where beginners can submit their content and learn, however if a submission is considered to have been made deliberately of poor quality on purpose, to troll, point farm etc, it may be removed.

10. 1.9 File Content

No executables or similar are allowed in regular submission files. Any submissions found with executables in their files will be withheld until the executable is removed. Tools and Gamefiles are exempt from this rule. If for whatever reason you really must include an executable in your download, please contact a moderator to ask for permission before uploading it.

11. 1.10 Autoplaying Music/Videos

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

12. 1.20 Section Specific Rules

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


13. Notice About Rules

If you are having trouble understanding any of these rules, please contact a moderator or administrator before submitting. To view a list of moderators and administrators, head over to this page.

    What the different of Moderator, Super Moderator, Admin, and Super Admin??

    Just curious :)
    Moderator is restricted to a single section.
    Super Moderator is a Moderator that reaches that position once they get enough moderation permissions (as in, number of places they're allowed to moderate)
    Admin is someone who has universal control over the site.
    Super Admin is restricted to Tom, and is basically universal power with access to the site itself, like its code, etc.

    hey, a moderator flagged my sound for no  reason, this motherfucker flagged the sound for 

    being against the rules, being copyright infringing, having credit theft, having improper credits, being Inappropriate and having lacking information

    any help? can you just make him NOT A MOD
    First off, they flagged it for a good reason; insulting them for flagging the submission in the first place really isn't necessary. Second, the flag was removed not too long after it was placed, so there's no problem here at this point.
    sorry for late reply, but i regret insulting him and also the flag was resolved

    It's okay. I can understand you being heated up, especially when that user added that many reasons in just one flag. Remember that you can always add a support ticket in case you have an issue you want resolved!

    Not as serious as you'd think.

    Is it allowed to post the same submission for different games? Since it is supported in the way VALVE made games one can gain a lot of points.
