PostSubject: About Advertising   Mon Jan 23, 2012 3:43 pm

Before we cover ANYTHING, you need to follow these basic guidelines or else your website/forum will be removed from our list.

1. You must present your work with a professional manner (basic spelling and grammar, please).

2. Your website/forum HAS to be gaming related in some sense. We don't require our partners to be necessarily SEGA/Sonic related, but we DO require you're gaming related.

3. We only partner or allow advertisement of gaming related FORUMS and WEBSITES. This can include blogs, so forth. If you come here and advertise your YouTube channel without a blog or something to go with it, we'll remove your advertisement thread.

4. No rude or inappropriate content please.

If any of these above guidelines are broken, we'll remove your thread without warning.

Now, there's a difference between OFFICIAL partners and people who simply advertise here.

*Official partner's works are stickied for everyone to see.
*Official partner's works are shown in our official affiliates list.
*Official partner's works are mentioned in EG's intro topics on SEGA Forums and other places.

Now, how can you be an official partner, and what do you need to do?

*Official partners need to contact an administrator of Emerald Gaming and arrange partnership.
*You MUST be a Sonic/SEGA related forum/website.
*You must have a relatively active forum. With that said, we don't ask for new posts every day, but a relatively fair activity level (a few posts every week).
*You need to have at least 20 members

Well shoot, looks like I need to finish working on my site and get it up and hosted before I advertise my channel :/

Also, to partner, do the entire channel have to be COMPLETELY Sonic/SEGA related or can it have a little bit of other games thrown into the mix as well. I do have Sonic videos currently up on my channel, but that isn't the only game I focus on, nor are all my games that I focus on SEGA branded, although some are.

Well, since you seem to be going for being an unofficial partner (since channels aren't official partners) that would be okay.

Alright, I need to get some things up, then I should be set. I went over to Forumotion to host my site since I like the way it works. It won't be much to begin with, but it will become better once I get some work done on it. Hopefully I can get my site setup enough to make it work for a bit.

Alrighty, if you need help, you can always come to me or Azzy for Forumotion help. Bot's probably your best bet if you need skin help or anything along those lines. It's not too hard to figure out, but I needed some help when I first started using it.

And I forgot to add a requirement for being an official partner, you need at least 20 members, so keep that in mind Ases.

Well, I guess I won't put in a request for official partnership until then. It's going to be a bit slow at first, but hopefully I can get enough members by then.

OH WAIT! It's been past a week since I joined. I can put up my videos now Very Happy

I did just replace the banner and I got to say it's simple, but looks nice. I'm using a HitSkin theme for now, but eventually I'll have to replace that. I'm using phpBB3, but I may change depending on what I need. I may switch to phpBB2 for templete editing eventually.

The key with making a good forum is making it look good, and getting the right people to help you. EG's still a work in progress, in fact. The forum needs a new design, and the staff is currently working on that. :P So we can do this together, more-or-less.

Just let me know what I can do to help, because you seem like a nice guy with some good goals, so I don't mind helping out.

Yeah, I was editing my post while you posted.

I will probably end up getting a staff of my own eventually. However, my main goal right now is just to get this up and running so I can get some members.

Actually I can just give you the link to the site. I'll send you a PM. Reminder, this theme is only temporary.

Going to phpBB2 might be a good idea. I did look in the Special Themes section and I did see a really nice Minecraft Themed design that I may use for an optional theme when I get the multi-theme scheme setup.

What we do (and most other forums I've seen) is find a easy skin with a simple design, and just adjust the widths and templates, then add our banners in. Just make sure the banner/icons/anything else fits with the proportions you've either adjusted or left the same.

Sure, just PM it on to me. Very Happy

Problem with adjustments is that you don't know what size screen the other viewers have. So you don't know what it looks like on another person's computer.

But yeah, Lucky for me I have some experience with HTML and CSS, so I think editing for the most part won't be a big problem for me.

Yeah, true. Just finding some good proportions overall though usually works.

Well, it seems pretty much ready. I may make some changes with ranks and such, but nothing too major at the moment. I'm going to wait for twenty members before I make my topic here about the site and channel.

Sounds cool, guess I'll just go ahead and sign up. Very Happy

So now, all you need to be an official partner is at least 20 members, and a relatively fair activity level.
