Rules and Acknowledgements

There aren’t many rules here but the following are important and MUST be adhered to.

1.) Images used on this site must have a Creative Commons attribution license, and the authors visibly credited.

The internet is a minefield of illegal usage suits if you aren’t careful, so we will not allow any posts using images that do not have a verifiable creative commons license. This just as much for your protection as it is for ours. If you don’t know where to get creative commons licensed images, just search “Flickr Creative Commons” in Google, that’s a good source. (the image at the top of the page is sourced from Flickr creative commons and correctly attributed, follow that example.)

If you have your own images you’d like to use, we’ll happy to use them so long as we can confirm that they’re yours. Ideally we’d like written permission to use them, so if you send us an image to use with a post on the site, please just state that you’re allowing us to use it in that message.

While images are not required for posts, if you choose to insert a header or “featured” image, please make sure it is at least 672 pixels wide. (And please link it as the featured image to the post.) This will ensure that your post will appear in the front page slideshow.

2.) DO NOT re-blog other creators’ work here. Anything posted here must be your own work, so anything from your own blog, site, or channel is fine.

Stealing content is taken very seriously these days, and even mistakenly using stolen content can result in major financial obligations for the poster and the site that hosted the post. Just don’t do it.

3.) Keep it SFW (Safe For Work)

We want to attract the widest audience possible and get you and your content all the attention we can, so we will not permit any explicit content here.

Acknowledgements

We hope it goes without saying that by posting here on United We Game you give us permission to display your post.

Finally, if you have been posting here and one day decide that you don’t want to be affiliated with United We Game anymore, all you have to do is ask and we will promptly remove any content you’ve posted here. We hope it never comes to that, but if it does we’ll wish you well all the same.

    1. Thank you for your offer to contribute to United We Game. I will email my fellow admins, and we’ll get back to you.

      While I can tell you what we’ve decided here, if you would like to, you can email us at wegameunited@gmail.com or leave us your email address in a comment, and we can contact you by email. (By the way, if you leave your email address in a comment, I can delete it once we have your contact info if you don’t want your contact info visible to others.)
