    Default Please, Please, PLEASE don't just plug in your website.

    I've been noticing a lot of people just joing, plugging in there site, then leaving. If the only reason you came is to show off your site, than the chances are that no one will visit it. For people to care about your site, they will have to care about you first most likely. Stick around, get to know the members, than try showing off your site. We want new members to join and stay with us. If your new, than don't simply use this as an advertising board. Have some fun.

    No one will care about the site of some newb they've never heard of.

    Edit: Also, make sure that your site has something worthwhile to look at. If you have something new with barely anything, it's ok to post asking for help, but don't post saying "It will get better... eventually..."

    Pople mostly come here to advertise their website. They only care for themselves. Make up a rule for this forum to stop these thing from happening.

    Id admit that I did find this forum by looking for places to post a link to my site. Through Im not really interested in advertising as I sort of just want like 50 people to play through a while to find allot of the bugs, but I think this forum has a lot to offer as I can always get feedback and help here, so Im going to stick around

    the fact of the matter is, that this website is a gaming community, full of potential gamers.

    For game developers its the perfect oppurtunity to get there game out in the open to its relevant market.

    I don't think there is anything wrong with freewebs as long as your site isn't bare. Yes, I just joinded today but I've also noticed people posting links and leaving. I actually joined to have fun and get some advice. An added bonus to this site is people to beta test when my game is ready! which it won't for a while, but hey, what can I say.

    Hi. Here's a simple rule that you could do. If anyone want to post or promote their website, make it a minimum of 5 forum posts (or something). But here's the bad thing...people will sure to spam just to reach that quota.

    Or, make that section as section that requires moderation (or approval before post), therefore only a handful of posts would be posted. Requires a bit of work tho, that mod have to find all of those 5 posts to see if they arent spams.

    Just my 0.00001 cents.

    Yeah the only advertisement I care about is my UO server. But I rather host that for the purpose to offer mmorpgers what they want. I have played so many mmorpgs that lacked a few features but had some good ones. So i took my knowledge of the systems and implimented them on my own server after every game played to make a mmorpg with everything good and hopefully very little bad.

    I might be a newbie to the site and yes I might stick something up about the games I love to play but I am always checking out what is said and how it is said. If there is a new topic area for those who want to do that they why downgrade someone for it just dont visiit it. I really enjoy comments so I have like a zillion forums that I am with so yeah it might seem like I am here and then gone again but I love checking up on everything when I can. But I just dont like bashers. If anyone posts a question pertaining to my game then I will answer that question. If i see a game here I like or someone has a question to a game that I know of then yeah I am going to reply. I just dont have all day to stay on one site.

    I will post a link of my site soon enough. It is not MY site or a site about me. It's a blog site where I post my reviews for MMORPGs so I think it's relevant here too. I'm currently adding more games to review. I'll probably post it here once I have at least 5 games on the list.

    Please support it when it comes.

    I agree. People posting site urls and leaving sucks. I mean, if you're here for promoting something, at least do it with effort. :3>

    IT has to be admitted I join sites like this to promote a new game a friend and I have developed. We get lots of views but no bites, and I wonder why. However if I see anything interesting on the forums I do browse and post if that is relevant. But sites like this are a godsend for games wanting to test things out with a few players.

    I'm very thankful that places like this one exist, otherwise as new devs we really don't know where to start
