Site Rules

A Wiki

Updates

menu
Wiki Links Fixed 2y
  • Adjustment Updated all links to match the new style of Wiki links (by id rather than name)

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. Heavily pornographic images are not allowed. This includes photographic and drawn images that have been clearly made for pornographic reasons.
  7. 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. 1.21 Authors

Every person who worked on any part of your submission must be credited. Put the authors names in the author field and their role in the role field, each entry separated by a new line. Detailed credits should go in the author's notes field. List authors once only. Do not include anyone who did not have a role in the creation of the content. 

14. 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 there any ruling on advertisement and/or linking to sites which have cheating software available for download? One of the submissions on the TF2 front page at the moment has a link to a certain aimbot software site (which I will refrain from naming) in its description.

    EDIT: It seems it was deleted. I understand the ruling now.

    quick question about rule 1.1.: do the abbreviated weapon names (e.g. 'M4A1', 'AR15' or 'M110 SASS') exempts the rule or not?

    I was just curious on this; what is Gamebanana's stance on commissions? I can't seem to find anything on the site related to them or if they are allowed or not.

    Any answer would be appreciated!

    You should update the link in sections 12 & 13 to reflect the new wiki link style.

    "Your submission has been withheld because it failed to follow some of our rules. To have your submission re-listed please follow these steps:

    • Please fix the author group. By default, it's set to "Original Authors" and if you got nothing to type, please leave it as it is.
    Please reply to this message after making the requested fixes" I readed this rule section and didn't find anything about this..
