Site Rules

This is a Wiki submitted by BigDog.

Site Rules

By using this site, you automatically accept these rules.

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]".

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.

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. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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:

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.

    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.

    Does anyone know the designated points needed to request mods? Like how much for a sound mod or reskin and so on.

    That's pretty much decided by the request creator, in other words, you decide how many points you want to give once your request is delivered, but whether someone actually makes the mod you're asking for or not, it's not something you can control if the amount is too low.

    "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.
