    Default ***Hold it RIGHT THERE!***

    Rule #1: Websites only - NO FORUMS
    In this forum, you may post your website to get it rated or simply for help regarding it. You may also discuss website-related things. However, you may not post forums, IRC channels, Oekakis, Wikis or anything else that has its content created by members rather than a certain webmaster and/or staff. This includes:
    a) Direct links to forums, IRC channels, Oekakis, Wikis, etc.
    b) "Portals", websites that contain no real content aside from a link to a forum, IRC channel, Oekaki, Wiki, etc.
    c) Encouragement to join a forum, IRC channel, Oekaki, Wiki, etc. while giving an indirect link (link to a site containing a link to there).
    Any such threads will be locked and the link removed.

    Rule #2: Keep it clean
    You may not post a link to any website containing pornographic or otherwise inappropriate content, including excessive swearing.

    Rule #3: YOUR OWN sites only
    Do not advertise a site which is not yours. If you are a staff member of said site (staff member does not include being a forum moderator, etc.), you may advertise it with the actual owner's permission. If you are a co-owner, you may advertise the site as you please.

    Rule #4: Advertise modestly
    You may only post one thread per month about a given website. If the previous thread is still active after a month, you may not start another thread until the old one dies.

    Rule #5: No spam
    When replying to other people's threads, you may not post:
    a) Spam replies that contain nothing useful for the webmaster.
    b) Double, triple, quadruple, quintuple, etc. posts, many posts in a row in the same thread.
    c) Direct advertising for your own website, even when accompanied by a valid reply about the other site.

    Rule #6: Effort, please
    Do not advertise a site unless it shows some decent effort put into it. This means the site should either:
    a) have quite a few pages of content created entirely by you or other staff, or
    b) have an originally made layout created entirely by you or other staff.
    If your site does not comply with the rules, the thread will be locked and the link removed.

    Rule #7: No stealing
    Do not advertise a site that contains stolen content with improper credit given. Not specifically claiming you made it is not an excuse for theft unless the original creator of the content specifically states it may be used by anybody without credit.


    If you come across a rule-breaking thread here, you should either PM me or, if you don't have the time, rate the thread one star. I don't check my e-mail often enough for reports to be very effective - by the time I read them, another mod has usually dealt with the problem, so I tend not to really look at them very carefully.


    If there is anything else, please remind me.

    YES! FINALLY! THANK YOU! <3

    Question: When I report, I leave a note that I reported and why I reported it, in hopes that others will cease to reply and just wait for you/other staff to lock it. Would you like me to continue this, or just report?


    And another question, does posting a thread about my site PocketNews fall under that "Not allowed" bit, as some of the "content" is made by users?

    Technically, replying to rule-breaking is spam, so you should just report it...


    And another question, does posting a thread about my site PocketNews fall under that "Not allowed" bit, as some of the "content" is made by users?
    Well, since anybody can come, register and post there, I'd call them members so it's not allowed. (If people had to ask you before becoming members, they would count as staff and it would be allowed.)

    Nice to see, the rules have finally been updated :P

    Well, are we only allowed to advertise websites or can we talk about general webbie things like host's, forum software, HTML coding etc. too?

    You may also discuss website-related things.
    So yes, you can talk about that.

    What if you want to know how to make a forum? It is not advertising any forums just asking how to make one.

    I really think there should be a rule against freewebs site-builder sites, we've seen that same boring layout 12472487 times there is nothing to rate. Not to mention every site that uses that layout has no actual content. If people don't even bother to work at making their own layout, they will never learn how to make websites for real.

    95% of Serebii.net does not understand competitive battling. If you're one of the 5% that do, then don't waste your time putting this in your sig - head straight to Smogon.

    Remember, Serebii loves you

    I agree with you.
    I actually think there should be a rule that every site which gets posted here should either have an own layout or some decent content.

    *adds rules six and seven* Hmm, funny. I could've sworn I made rules like that before.

    Can you get help for information for a site. Cause we're making a site for our forums so we can advertise it. But we need help. We need alot of members to help. So can we?
    PS: What's wrong with advertising forums.

    No we don't need much help, loads of the mods on it are already gonna help. I think we can't advertise it because it may 'steal' serebii's members, or maybe it's to effortless and boring to look at, and an excuse for admins to get more members, the current site we're making breaks loads of rules, but now we're getting help.
    Never mind about Bling's post, it's sorted.

    The only reason you can advertise actual websites is for getting criticism on them. If you're showing a forum, it's kinda ridiculous to tell you "Hey, that's a very nice forum! I like the category names!" or "I don't like your forum, this member is really mean." So basically, advertising a forum is just advertising.

    That makes alot of sense, but what about skins? Then again saying "nice skins!" is stupid too... And what's wrong with encouragement? I'm just being like a newbie, I think i know why but I'm checking.

    To be honest I think rule no.2 could be changed to allowing it but there must be a BIG warning on. And also what is Oekakis and Wikis?

    Nope, porn links will never be allowed here.

    An Oekaki is a kind of board, where you can draw pics and other people can comment on them.
    More info

    A Wiki is a kind of information system where everyone can submit and edit information.

    He means content that the staff did not make. Like in Wikis and Pocket-news.

    is that a must?
