We're excited about seeing your ideas for MechQuest! We do need to have some rules in place, and guidelines for you to follow. Of course, the Universal Forum Rules apply here; rules violations may result in official Warnings that could lead to a ban, in accordance with forum moderation policies.
Multiple Suggestion Posts
Each forum user is permitted one suggestion post in each of the MQ Suggestions forum sections. You may have one post in each subforum. (This means that you put all your suggestions for new mecha bases in one post in the Mecha Bases Forum; please make a separate post in the Starship Items forum for your items ideas, for example.) All additions to a submitted post must be done via the button within the original post. You may find your existing post easily by using the 'view all threads I posted in' option (in the Filter dropdown menu at the upper right-hand side of the forum) and of course you may bookmark your own post in your browser. Please do not make more than one post in each subforum; multiples will be removed, and repeatedly breaking this rule will result in official Warnings and consequences in accordance with forum moderation policies.
Please review the "Please Don't" List before making your suggestion!
We talked with Warlic about the kinds of suggestions which do and which do not interest him at this time. It would be appreciated if you'd have a look at the "Please Don't" List before posting. Posts consisting of things covered by this "Please Dont" List will be deleted.
Banners / Images / Signatures
Please post your suggestions in a quickly-loading, easy to read format, without any embedded images. Your post may be edited or deleted (with a quote of the original) by the moderation team if you post images. Please do not use the image tags at all, for any reason.
There is no need for a fancy banner at the top of your post. This is a type of image, and causes the page to take extra time to load. No banners, please.
If you wish to provide an image with your suggestion, please use link tags.
[link= ] [/link] or [url= ] [/url] or just paste the link into your post.
Never link to images that aren't your own art without permission. This is considered "Ripping,"which is defined in the AE Gallery as "the use of another's art without permission." This is not allowed under any circumstances.
We prefer that you do not use your signature in MQ Suggestions. There is no need for them - they simply aren't necessary. They just prolong the loading time of the site, and quite honestly they distract from the actual suggestion you are posting.
Advertisement is not permitted.
Please do not advertise your suggestions in any form, be it posting in other people's threads to link to your post, posting threads in other forums or having links in your signature (i.e., "Look at my suggestions please!" types of sigs). Please do not ask other forum members, AKs, moderators, administrators, or game staff to look at your suggestions via email or the forums PM system. Advertising your suggestion post will result in deletion of your post, and any further consequences deemed appropriate.
Discussion of Suggestions:
The MQ Suggestions forum is first post only, for members to post their suggestions for review and consideration by game and forum staff. If you wish to reply to someone's suggestion, you may do so only via the Private Messaging system. Please be polite and respectful! The Universal Forum Rules apply to private messages, so any abusive or otherwise rulebreaking PMs may be reported to moderators for disciplinary action.
Suggestions must fit the subforum category:
Please make sure that your post only includes suggestions for the category defined by the forum title. (When the MechQuest Team is looking at Player Equipment suggestions, we are not looking for new ideas for mecha bases at that time. etc.) Suggestions posts that don't fit the category or with an unrelated suggestion within the post may be deleted with a request for reformatting and reposting; the moderation team will not move your posts for you. (Remember, you are responsible for keeping a copy of your own suggestions!)
*What to do with a suggestion that does not fit in any category? Save it to your computer in a document. Watch for contests and watch the Design Notes. The MechQuest Team will make an announcement if and when it is time to hear ideas for anything that is not in one of these categories.
-Suggestions AKs/Mods shall delete any post found to be in violation of board/forum rules.
This means that if the rules of this board or the Universal Forum Rules are broken, the AKs/Mods in charge of MQ Suggestions will delete the post as well as hand out any appropriate Warnings or penalties as a consequence. While this should (ideally) be a rare occurrence, any post may be removed without prior warning. You are responsible for reading the rules and for keeping a copy of your suggestions.
