Rules for Script Releases
« on: September 26, 2012, 12:42:50 am »
In this board, there are five simple rules to follow. Please don't break them.

  • All script releases must include source code.

    If you post a thread and say "source code is coming soon," your thread will be removed until you post the source code with it. This is for safety. We do not want malicious code to appear, pretending to be a gamemode, and not be noticed because the source code couldn't be looked at.

    Include the .pwn file or don't post at all.

  • Scripts must be tested and must work.

    Clearly, if the script is broken, it may be removed. If not, a notice will be placed at the top of your release thread saying that it is broken until it is fixed.

  • Scripts must be available as compiled gamemodes or filterscripts.

    If you have to say "copy and paste this code in this function" or "add this to the top of your script" instead of releasing it as a filterscript, you should post it in the Snippet Showroom.

  • Do NOT claim other people's scripts to be yours.

    Copy-and-pasting code without giving credit, or modifying a gamemode so that your name shows up instead of the original author's, is breaking the basic forum rules. Also, don't post SA:MP filterscripts or gamemodes and say they will work for VC:MP. They won't work for VC:MP. They have to be converted.

  • CHECK for viruses before posting a release.

    Releases that include server files (e.g. server.exe, announce.exe) MUST be checked for viruses or they will be removed if they do contain viruses. Several infected server.exe files have been released in the past, along with other viruses on this forum, and it is important that script uploaders must either not include them or make sure they include the right server.

    Download servers from the home page as often as possible:

    They are virus-free and safe to use.

Updated to include a rule regarding malware, since several infected or modified servers have been uploaded in the past, including today...
