Rules of the Game Development section
The community rules also apply here.
  • Theft is not tolerated!
    You may not claim another person's work as your own, nor should you use it without said person's permission. If permission is granted, you should clearly credit that person.
  • Do not talk about Emulation or ROM Hacking here.
    You may do so in the ROM Hacking section.
  • Do not ask how to obtain illegal versions of any software.
    It is against the rules of PokéCommunity to provide warez.
  • 100 days limit to thread revivals.
    You may revive any thread so long as it has been less than 100 days since its last post. The Resources and Scripts & Tutorials sections have no thread revival limit at all. See also the rule about keeping project threads updated below.
  • Avoid repetition by using the Search function.
    Before you make a post or thread, be sure to do a search in order to avoid repeating an existing thread/post. However, you should make a new thread rather than bump an old one of the same topic if that old thread has been inactive for more than 100 days.
  • Be clear.
    When posting, make sure that your post is legible, relevant and coherent.
  • Be constructive.
    When commenting on a game or idea, be sure to do so in a constructive manner. Simply saying "This game looks great! Keep up the good work!" is not a good post. In addition, be sure to accept any criticism directed toward you.
  • Showcase screenshots.
    If you wish to show off maps or in-game screenshots, you may do so in the Map Showcase and Review Thread or the Screenshot Showcase thread respectively.
  • Game project threads.
    Game project threads are not to be posted in the main section. They should go in Progressing Games instead. All game project threads should start in that section, regardless of how developed they are - you may ask a moderator to move your game project thread into the Games Showcase if you feel it deserves to be there.
  • Keep your project thread updated.
    You should show from time to time that you are still working on your project. If you have stopped working on your project (either temporarily or permanently), you should say so. If there hasn't been some kind of progress report posted in 100 days, your thread may be locked. You can revive your own project thread after this time, so long as you post a progress report and not just an "I'm still working on this" message.
  • Do not ask about release dates.
    If a project's creator has not mentioned a specific date, please refrain from asking when a game will be released. Doing so is considered spam.
  • Do not ask to become a beta tester.
    If a project's creator has not requested any beta testers, do not ask.
  • Double posting.
    You may double post in a project's thread if you are the thread's creator, but only if your second post is about an update to your project.
  • Locking and unlocking threads.
    You may request that a moderator lock your thread by sending them a Private Message. You should do the same if you want them to unlock a thread.
