Is making a non official support forums against FM ToS/Rules?

Post by Ramdaman on September 14th 2014, 4:47 am

Hi, I was thinking about making an Albanian support forum (non official, I would make it very clear in the site description that it is unofficial).

I was wondering if I was allowed to do this? Thanks.

I don't know what you mean by that,

But if I get the OK to do this, I'll probably have everything sent to the Pro Admin/Managers to ensure that it's good.

Then again, you wouldn't have db access or whatnot.

Staff can act as a translator then.

I believe that this is allowed, though using the exact skin of official forum skins may not be allowed.

Hi,

I do believe you are allowed to make an unofficial forum, permitting you display that you are 'unofficial' and never claim to be an 'official' support forum. You however cannot use any of the images used on any of for forumotion support forums.
However, i do strongly recommend sening ButterCup a PM just for further clarification, as she works in the office and she can give a better picture of things.

Done. Now the question is how do I request a banner for this. Lol.

Like Radiohead said, I'd speak to Buttercup about this first and then maybe ask her some questions that you have, because she might be able to help.

We do have a number of support forums that by most intensive purposes are considered unofficial or were official but then made unofficial.

Let Buttercup know you're planning to make one and see what she says.

I've sent her a PM but I must wait tomorrow.

Am I allowed to share the link here?

For now, do not share the link.  Even if Buttercup says it is ok, I see you having issues.

That'll be something you'll have to ask Buttercup about.

Buttercup has given me the OK to make this.

I have a question, where can I advertise it, since the forums language is not English.

You will need to find somewhere to advertise it since we do not allow non-English forums to be promoted here.
