Important Review Section Requesting Guidelines (Please Read)

Post by Derri on July 15th 2014, 11:38 am

Review Requesting Guidelines


Requesting Rules


  • Only Forumotion forums can be reviewed. If your forum is not on Forumotion then the request will be locked.
  • Review requests that are made where the forums violate the Forumotion terms of service will be locked and refused until said content is removed.
  • Bumping your request for attention is permitted, but the post must be separated from your last post with a 72 hour time span.
  • If your request is not in the proper format, we will refuse it. We ask that you post in the given formats so that people can begin starting the review process.
  • The review section also follows the rules of the forum itself. You may find the rules in each section as a Global Announcement, or you can access them here.
  • Only Administrators of your forum can request a review here. If you are not an Administrator, you may not request for a review. If your Administrators group is hidden, you must post a screenshot of the group itself proving that you are an Administrator.
  • All forums must be in English. If your forum is not in English then your request will be denied.
  • You can't mark your own topic completed. Only official reviewers have the right to mark a review official, and change the topic icon to completed.
  • Any further questions regarding reviews can be asked in our [Only Topic] "Questions about Reviews" located here.
