FANSITE PACK, TERMS & CONDITIONS AND LICENCE
We've had requests from people to use Illyriad trademarks and copyrighted material in third party websites.
We very much appreciate all the time and effort that webmasters and mistresses are putting into creating fansites, portals, wikis and all other supplemental resources concerning Illyriad.
So - to help these builders along - we've put together a Kit to help these paragons of Illyriad create their Illyriad-themed sites.
There are a few rules, regulations and requirements that
third party websites agree to abide by, when using our content. We've
tried to keep them as simple as possible.
1. OFFICIAL THREAD LISTING
When a fansite is operational and complete we will list it
on an official thread in the forum. Message boards or alliance forums
with no publically accessible content are not eligible for
listing on the official thread. Post a link in this thread or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the URL to your fansite and we will have a look at it prior to
listing. The decision to list or delist a fansite is discretionary to
Illyriad Games Limited.
2. ILLYRIAD RELATED
must be a recognisable connection to Illyriad on the fansite. Sites
that concern multiple games other than Illyriad are fine, so long as
there's some part of the site that we can link to directly, that
concerns Illyriad and Illyriad only.
3. PROHIBITED CONTENT
Fansites must not explicitly or implicitly solicit users, under any circumstances, to divulge their ingame account login password.
Fansites must not include offensive or adult content or have any commercial activity associated with them, with the following 2 exceptions:
4. REPURPOSING CONTENT
Non-commercial sites may use content and resources from
official Illyriad websites under the condition that the COPYRIGHT NOTICE below
is either displayed directly - or hosted on a separate page on your
fansite, and that this page is visibly linked from every page where
Illyriad content and resources appear.
When using materials or content that was originally published elsewhere, proper credit must be given to the original author and used only by permission. When using content, including forum posts or blog entries, from official Illyriad websites, please include the name of the contributor and a link to the post or location of the content you're using.
