Ads keep us online. Without them, we wouldn't exist. We don't have paywalls or sell mods - we never will. But every month we have large bills and running ads is our only way to cover them. Please consider unblocking us. Thank you from GameBanana <3

User Advertising - A Wiki.

Rules and guidelines that apply to advertising.

1. Non-commercial Advertising

Advertising anything non-commercial is permitted; if relevant to our site's interest/audience. Eg. If someone wants to advertise their work or link to something on a gaming site that's fine. Linking to a social network profile, a band or some other organization or community is fine too.

1.1. Exceptions

Commercial advertising is allowed only if the user is NOT directly benefiting from it. Eg. Linking to a specific computer part you bought on a site.

2. Referral Advertising

Referral advertising of any kind is strictly prohibited. No prior warning will be issued and the violating content will be removed.

3. Servers

Advertising of servers is not allowed anywhere on the site. Certain exceptions may be allowed for servers set up specifically for GameBanana members however it will come down to the discretion of administrators and moderators to allow them.

4. Discretion

What is deemed "excessive" is at the sole discretion of administrators and moderators. The forms of advertising that are permitted are privileges and can be taken away.

5. Non-Compliance

Non-compliance with any of the aforementioned clauses will result in offending content being removed. Repeat offenders will have their advertising privileges revoked and may be gagged or banned.

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.

    By servers, does this mean game servers or Discord servers?

    Also, "servers" can really mean anything, it could be a website or an email address or whatever, all of those are hosted on servers! Yeah I know that's a dumb misinterpretation, that common sense should tell me isn't the case, but I like to consider it just incase.
