DarkeSword Posted February 28, 2015 Report Share Posted February 28, 2015 The Community forum is our main forum for discussion different topics related to the site. You can talk about video games, music, and other kinds of entertainment, or just about OC ReMix in general. There are a couple of rules and guidelines I want to go over related to specific kinds of threads that pop up every once in a while, and just posting guidelines in general.General Guidelines Keep in mind that you're posting on a forum, not in a chat room. You have time to read over your post to make sure you're spelling things correctly, using decent grammar, and generally being readable. Don't forget to paginate your posts; nobody wants to read one giant block of text. If you're creating a thread, make sure it actually contains a decent amount of discussion. Don't just post a link to an article on another site, or just a one-liner question. If you're posting about a video game, don't assume that people here know about that video game; try to create an informative first post with details about what kind of game it is, who makes it, what platforms it's on, when it comes out, etc. Maybe include some screenshots as well. Threads should be discussions of topics, not feeds for off-site content. For example, if there's a video series on YouTube that's fairly popular and you want to discuss it, that's fine. But if all you're doing is posting a link to the newest video in the series every time one comes out, that's not fine, and the thread will be closed. And remember, refrain from posting favorites threads.Promoting Music You're allowed to promote their own music in this forum if you're an OC ReMixer (posted or to-be-posted). If you haven't had a remix posted on the site or haven't had one accepted by the panel, you should use the Post Your Remixes! and Post Your Original Music! forums to promote your music instead. As an eligible ReMixer, you're only allowed to promote completed albums that are coming soon or are already out and available. This forum is not for releasing singles or for notifying the community about incomplete albums that are still in-progress. However, releasing a single in order to promote the impending release of a full album is fine. In addition, no one is allowed to promote unlicensed, for-profit remix albums anywhere on the site. If you want to promote a for-profit remix album on OC ReMix, it needs to be licensed in some way, such as through OverClocked Records or Loudr.Kickstarters and Crowdfunded Projects For Kickstarters (and other crowdfunding projects), you're allowed to create a new thread specifically for any project you're directly involved with (i.e. creating a game, writing music for a movie) if you're an OC ReMixer (posted or to be posted). If you have a Kickstarter that you want to promote just because you're interested in it or are a backer, but you don't have any involvement in it in any way, you can post about it in Crowdfunded Projects. This applies to OC ReMixers and regular forum members.Special Note: If you're an OC ReMixer whose first remix is still to-be-posted and you want to post a promotion thread for an album or a Kickstarter, please include that you have a remix in the to-be-posted queue in your post so that the moderation team knows to leave it alone.
