New community venture announced!
Hi everyone and all of you creative members of our community in particular.
We have promised we will support our community as much as possible and here comes another service we want to offer to you. From January 2010 we plan to introduce a new section at www.arma2.com called Guerrilla / Community. This page will be dedicated to the entire community content created for ARMA or ARMA 2, as we feel it deserves more public attention.
What we offer is the possibility to participate in the content published at this website. It's the opportunity for you to present your work to a much wider public and newly recruited players too!
This kind of content is expected to be published at the Community Page:
- User made MOD / Addon / Tool announcement
- User made SP / MP Mission / Campaign announcement
- New website announcement
- Weekly reports from ARMA2 news sites
- Important community events
- Useful web links
If you are interested in such collaboration on the official ARMA 2 website, just follow these steps to become a contributor:
- Go to this contact page at the ARMA 2 website and complete the form with these details:
- Your real name, city, country where you live.
- Your nickname used at the Bohemia Interactive forums.
- What community group / MOD / website you represent.
- What kind of content you want to contribute.
- Which language(s) you speak (English is required as minimum)
- Please note that all details are mandatory and without them the request will be deleted.
- Once you send the form, just wait until it's processed in Bohemia Interactive, which might take up to several days as every single request will be handled manually.
- Once the request is approved you will obtain an email with your newly created user account at www.arma2.com to be able to log in and post the article or web link you want to publish.
There are several rules for all contributors which must be followed at all times:
- Only true and confirmed information directly related to ARMA / ARMA 2 user made content or activity is required. No spam, slander, lies, mystification and so.
- Clear, brief article. No double posts or unbearably long stories.
- Announcements, releases or major updates only, no WIP reports or minor updates.
- Weekly news reports up to date, no releases older than one week in the summary.
- Proper and spell-checked language. No irregular/slang words or any explicit content.
- One image per post. (Except news sites weekly reports). Every image must be hosted on your own website or on free public image hosting (ImageShack and so).
- All content should have the permissions of their respective creators, if there is any doubt that content permissions have not been sought you must not submit it to the website. Any content found to have been created without the prior permission of those who created any part of it, whether that be script, texture, model, sound, etc. will be removed from the website immediately and it is unlikely the person claiming this content as their own work will have any further content published on this community site.
There will be no warning / infraction. Any violation of these rules will have serious consequences such as both arma2.com and official forums account ban. As the venture progresses it is of course likely that further rules/clarifications will be required, which you will receive notification of.
After submission, every single article will require approval and publication by official administrator / moderator. The user created article might be deleted without explanation if considered improper by administrator / moderator. Nobody should expect it 100% certain that their submission will be published. Authors who prove themselves reliable and trustworthy may obtain higher user status to be able to post and publish their submissions immediately and they may become moderators in the future.
We will also appreciate any non-English submissions. However, the mandatory is to provide correct translation to English. The list of languages available follows:
- English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Polish, Hungarian, Czech, Russian
This service is not meant to be a competitor to established community websites, this service should hopefully complement the incredible work that the numerous news sites have performed for many years, nor do we plan to host files or images of user made stuff at Arma2.com for now. We hope this concept may prove itself viable and useful so we could introduce even more at www.arma2.com in the future.
Please, don't hesitate to contact us! We look forward to hearing your feedback / suggestions at www.arma2.com.
