Personal Forums


What is a personal forum?

    A personal forum is your very own subforum here on HBGames. If you have a game development team or another group project, it's a great way to keep in touch with the members of your team, and can serve as a useful base of operations for your work. These subforums can be password-protected, and you will be able to share your password with whoever needs access.


How do I get a personal forum?

    Personal forums are one of the perks of donating to HBGames. If you're a sponsor of the site, then we'll thank you for your donation with a personal forum. Just send a private message to an administrator, and we'll set it up for you. Give us the name of the subforum and a short description for the personal forums page. You can also request a password, and you can send in a small image (up to 100 pixels wide by 15 pixels tall, like this: Image) to mark your forum on the personal forums page. Once we see that you've donated to the paypal account, you'll be ready to go.


Who can see my personal forum?

    Anybody can, if you don't have a password set. If you do have a password, then just you and your team members, plus all forum staff members. If your forum has a password, that is yours to share with whoever you like.


What else do I need to know?

    Staff can and will enter personal forums for janitorial duties and to make sure nothing naughty is going on. Too much spam is also still unacceptable. If you don't post in a personal forum for a long while (over a year) it will be moved to the retired forums section, but can be moved back on request.


How do I get on the homepage?

    Just ask, and we will place a link to your forum on the homepage. Preferably it should have a logo image, something up to 164 pixels wide by 35 pixels tall. The image should contain the name of your forum (or an abbreviation of it). It will show below the affiliates, as a link to said personal forum. Only active forums will show on the homepage and we may remove those that are not getting posts from the homepage - as short as a 6 month hiatus even. Once more, it will be re-added on request should you return.

Yeah, since that's what they are. All money goes towards the site's own hosting.

An added feature of donating. You don't donate just for the sponsor badge or subforum, I hope!

#3 - "accidentally" double/triple/quadruple post
#4 - Break your posts up into more than one at a time
#5 - Make pointless threads, such as this one
#6 - Start or encourage arguments as often as possible
#7 - Welcome all new members, even if you don't want to
#8 - Bump threads by asking questions that you don't want to know the answer to
#9 - Necropost in really old threads to get the activity going again
#10 - Troll EVERYONE

One quick question: is it possible to eventually swap ownership of a private subforum? Say I donated, graciously of all things, for one and am no longer using it; would it be possible to give it to someone else who might use it in a much better way than I would? Or even sell it to him for 10$, or 5$, or something lower than the limit.

Basically, ownership change? Yes, no, tic, toc, pish, posh?

So, can we keep our own rules in these places? Obviously there are your base legal rules that won't eve be altered for obvious reasons, but other than that I could make a...I dunno....Mr Magorium's Porn Emporium?

RMXPW.org was a joke. I don't think we're going to be having April Fools next year.

They're intended for game development teams who want a place to dump project information and such. If you want a porn forum, make an InvisionFree board.

I don't see why there'd be a problem with it. So long as the forum doesn't DIE and isn't flooded with porn or warez everything should be cool.

I would really not suggest selling it, but if you arrange some sort of deal with a person in private there's nothing that we can do about it. We'd really avoid that sort of thing, though.

If you want to donate to the site, and donate enough to receive a private forum, but have no use for one, then by all means you are welcome to set it up for someone else. Likewise, members have donated and given sponsorship status to other members in the past.

It's better than them bitching because we did something and they were too thick to understand what it was.

It's okay Noliander, you weren't the first - and I doubt you'll be the last, to inquire about that.

Actually right now, $15USD is more like ‚¬9.5 or £7.6.

Edited: Crap, I'm an ignorant American, sue me. Oh wait you can't. :S

It's not even that much. Pity I'm too young to own a credit card to keep a Paypal account, and to lazy to get the 'rents to do it for me.

As much as I'd love to "donate" for a private sub-forum, I could buy a large stuffed panda instead. I could probably have more fun with the panda, but I'm sure people would rather go for the sub-forum, at least they would once you factor in the cost of stuffed panda food.

Err, bravo RMXP.org! Very nice feature you've got there.

What about public sub-forums?

If someone was interested in one of those for one of their projects, do you offer those in a similar exchange for more or less?

No, these were designed for private use only. We don't want the board clogged with public forums that need moderators to police. When there are private forums, everything is less troublesome and problematic, and it looks better. We also don't want to demonstrate official project endorsements to people not-in-the-know about private subforums.

Perhaps the main forum with the FAQ could maintain a list of board owners? Off the top of my head I cannot personally think of a reason why, but I'm sure a public list would be handy.
