Global Rule 14

14. Our community is gauged for Developers aged 13 years and older. Therefore there should not be any references to illicit or extreme content anywhere on the Developer Forum. This includes (but is not limited to) adult content and use of drugs, alcohol, or tobacco.

  • 14.1. You may not post NSFW/adult content on the Developer Forum. Intentionality is a factor - anything that is borderline or questionably NSFW will be considered unintentional, whereas any post that is very clearly NSFW will be considered intentional. The punishments for both differ, as you can see in the Broken Rules Matrix.

Global Rule 15

15. You are not permitted to accept any kind of payment for using the Developer Forum by proxy. This includes creating topics or replies for another user. Additionally, you may not sell access to features you obtain through membership, such as Beta User features available to those in the Developer Forum. Engaging in these activities will result in immediate removal from the Developer Forum.


Post approval procedure:

  • 15.1 If you are a New Member, and you want to create a topic in a category you do not have access to, you need to take the following steps:

    1. Create your topic in the Bulletin Board category instead first. Make sure your post fulfils all the guidelines of posting in the category you actually want to post it in. Save the link to the topic.
    2. Then, put the link in a group message to @Post_Approval. Make sure to mention the category you want it moved to in the title.
    3. The people in @Post_Approval will then check your topic and move it to your requested category once it meets all the guidelines of that category.

    If your topic doesn’t meet the category guidelines, they might ask you to make changes, or might deny the request if a similar topic was already made or if you fail to make the required changes.

    You are not allowed to circumvent the post approval procedure by posting your topic in an entirely unrelated category.

    Post approval requests are processed by volunteer community members, so the process can take anywhere between 10 minutes and several days depending on availability.


  • 15.2 You may make topics in the Bulletin Board section for other people, provided you are not doing so in exchange for money or anything else.

  • 15.3 You may not make any other type of topic for other people.
