Planning to post in Your Announcements? Does your post belong here?
Posts that don't belong might be closed or deleted, or might get a better response if posted in a different forum. The following list may help you decide if you should post in a different forum, or perhaps that you shouldn't bother posting at all.
Looking for help to create a game?
Try the new Classifieds system, accessible from the top navigation of the site.
EXCEPTION: If you're just looking for people to play and give feedback on your completed game you're probably better off in Your Announcements.
Offering services to help others create games?
If you're selling something -- web-hosting, texture or model packs, etc. you probably belong in Your Announcements, although you might also consider the Marketplace.
If you're offering skills -- graphic design, audio, programming, etc. you should probably post in Classifieds.
Are you selling cheap shoes, mobile phones, WoW gold, or pre-levelled game accounts?
Don't bother posting anywhere on our forums -- not only will we delete this sort of spam, but your account will probably be banned as well -- usually before anyone even sees your content.
Just trying to have a discussion?
Try our off-topic forum, The Lounge.
Trying to get feedback on the source-code of a completed game?
If you've just created your first game and are looking to get feedback on your programming from more experienced developers, try posting in the For Beginners forum. If possible, include the code using source tags (as described in the forum FAQ) as well as a link to a playable version of the game.
