Well, this would be something that falls on the "common sense" category but common sense is not that common haha. Now if you can implement my second idea then this forum will be a better place...

Hmm.. I like those ideas. To be honest, I think this is the first time I've seen you being serious about helping with the forums.

Duly noted. I've been guilty of this in the past, didn't realise I was breaking the rules. Would be great if there was somewhere on TA we could let readers know about giveaways though. Anyway, sorry again.

Sorry this is going in slow motion, I'm traveling, so it's harder to keep track of things. I'll try to get it addressed later tonight.

One thing I'd like to remind people is we have a very strict policy about no site/blog promotion. That also includes your twitter accounts, etc. It's always subject to abuse and spam, so we just don't allow it.

Clarification: To post Promo code giveaways you need to be the actual developer (or a full time employee of the company). You can't be just associated with or acting on the behalf of the developer.

Hi Arn,

I would like to conduct a promo code contest for The Horrible Vikings that MidianGTX is allowed to control. Why? He amuses me immensely. But also, I like the idea of TA players and fans becoming involved with our games in a personal way. Anyway, I would start the thread, distribute the promo codes, and have the guidelines clearly laid out. But Midian would be allowed to shape the nature of the contest (whatever his wacky brain thinks of. Posting photos of alligators fighting pythons? Who knows.) and he would be allowed to choose the winners. Also, I would make sure that everything is appropriate (we don't want it to reflect badly on us after all!).

Would this violate Touch Arcade's rules? I would appreciate some clarification. Thank you!

Hey Grace, I think you're fine because John, Battle for Vesta dev, is running an icon contest that was created by da shiz and is being judged by him too.

Seems ok, as long as the contest stays contained to a single thread, and is not a promotional vehicle for outside sites/twitter accounts etc...
