    7. Your Announcements

      PLEASE README BEFORE POSTING

      While the Your Announcements forum is here to allow you to spam the board with your website or game project, GameDev.net offers additional - and more visible - ways to get the word out.

      News - Do you have a tool, library, art, asset pack, or something else that would be of interest to developers? Then submit it to our news channel at https://www.gamedev.net/news/?do=form

      Projects - Use GameDev.net Projects to showcase, make announcements, and more for your project and development team. Learn more at https://www.gamedev.net/projects/about.

      Otherwise...

      Use Your Announcements to make your web site or game project known to everyone. If you're going to spam our board, this is the place to do it - but we still recommend using GameDev.net Projects!

      Note: In order to post in Your Announcements, Members must show minimal participation in the GameDev.net community through discussion in our forums, articles, blogs, news, gallery images, etc. We no longer allow members to create accounts simply to make announcements.

      If you are announcing a tool or service for developers, consider submitting a News Story at https://www.gamedev.net/news to reach a wider audience or post your project in Projects!
