    Erm... That's against the rules, IIRC

    Oops, I guess? I didn't see it anywhere.

    Unless for the purpose of funding an RPG maker game. In my patreon, it states I'd like funding for my game. Soooo... How am I going against the rules?

    I'm not trying to argue or anything! I just want to make sure I'm not going against the rules. I can't really clog up the forum with little updates and concept art for the game and what not, and I was gonna do most of that on Patreon. So if I can't even link to my patreon at all, that's a bummer. Lol.

    I'm not familiar by how Patreon works and I won't do mini-modding calling you out for it (because that's against the rules too), from what I know if you are using it only for funding an Rpg Maker game then you are fine.


    Just don't advertize it in statuses I guess, add it in your signature and profile to be safe. In any case, good luck with it.

    Mini-modding sounds like a cute thing tbh. Mini-modding. Doesn't that sound cute?!

    I wouldn't say cute, it means that someone else is trying to do Mod work. :p

    No, no, the action sounds ugly. But just say "Mini-Modding" out loud. Doesn't it sound cute? XD

    Yeah - link to forum rules is on the tabs at the top of the page, so easy enough to find.


    Specifically, you can add a link to your patreon in your signature (which then makes it visible on all your forum posts), but you can't make a post or a thread saying "here, have a look at my Patreon", and you can't advertise it on the profile feed.  imo putting it in your signature is better as it means it'll be seen more often, if you're a frequent poster.


    It might also be worth checking the rules pinned in the Crowdfunding forum - I know if you have a kickstarter or gofundme or similar for a game in development you can post about it there (a full game profile plus the link, not just the link).  You might also be able to do this for a patreon.  I just don't recall as I haven't looked at that thread for a while.

    oh - I left out ... the above applies if the patreon is for a game you're making.  It doesn't apply if it's for resources or scripts/plugins or other stuff.  So you could do it, but I couldn't, for example (if I had one).
