These seem to be the biggest "spam" issue and we probably will allow it to some degree once we get the forum in place.
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.
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!
