Hi all, just thought there should be an update in here saying that you can't post to creative corner unless you've used the forum for a bit. It instead says "post require moderater approval and wont show up right away". Not a big deal, just think ppl should know.

Most recent edit: 2017-09-27: fixing formatting.
  • Until you have 10 posts on the forum, your posts are subject to moderator approval. It may take a while for posts to appear, but be assured that they're still there! Similarly, private messages aren't allowed before you've gotten 10 posts (since private messages can't be viewed by moderators, they can't be sent with moderator approval). If you're having trouble figuring out how to reach 10 posts, visit the General subforum, there are many topics to chat in there, and there aren't many limitations!


This is the first post in the forum rules topic.

Hey, all! Just wanted to remind everyone about the Creative Corner rules that are in place. Particularly this bit right here.

Renara Wrote:Just a few helpful rules to keep the creative corner running as smoothly as possible! These are of course in addition to the global forum rules.

  • Please do not post to topics asking only for updates or progress.

We've been pretty lax in enforcing this one because, hey, it's understandable to wonder what's going on and we can't be in every topic looking for this type of post. But I'm noticing it pop up more and more frequently so I just wanted to remind everyone.
This especially goes for people who create an account just to ask this question.

Since we can see those pretty easily, I am going to start not allowing these type of messages out of the queue. If you recently sent a post that never appeared in the topic that asked this question, now you know what happened to it.

Could you ever explain what the problem with patreon is? or what to avoid

From what my understanding is and how I enforce the rule, basically just throwing a link to Patreon is little more than using the site to advertise. Advertisement is any form is a bannable offense, so I try to police it as best I can. Now, if you have a game going, a playable demo (that doesn't lead to Patreon, though I'll give it some leeway if the demo isn't trapped behind payment), a description and some images to show and you just so happen to also have a Patreon where people can support you, I'm gonna let that go because, to me, that's not Advertising. You've already given everyone alternate ways to find you, so it's sorta like just listing another social media method to reach your work. That's the way I play it at least. Basically I want you to be interactive with the community rather than just using us as a spot to advertise.
