General questions about the site

Postby Porus » Thu Aug 08, 2019 1:46 am

I want to know more about the Legends World sites so I made this topic.
First question:
Can I upload games whose genre is not covered on the LW sites, such as strategy, simulation, survival etc in the User Uploads Section, or is it restricted and against the rules.

Edit: I haven't checked other forums for a similar topic so sorry if I am repeating already covered discussions.

Sure, you can post download links to genres we don't cover in forum for people to get here. Just search forum first as it may have been posted in the past.

In the "Who Is Online" section, in the registered users area, most of the times I see these names listed "Google [Bot] and Bing [Bot]". I have no idea what these are and never herd of them so could someone explain to me what these "Bots" are, what they do, and are these the ones that create the spam posts. :huh: :?. :thanks: in advance.

They're bots that scour internet for updated pages on websites for search purposes of their indexers.

If I upload a game younger than 3 years in the "Restricted Game Uploads From Past 3 Years" section, in time (when it is old enough) will it get uploaded on the LW Sites or that section is similar to "Uploader Exclusive Uploads". :thanks: :)

Yes, they will be posted on site once their release becomes older than 3 years.

It's for links to torrent and ed2k links shared by users from here. Emule/eDonkey file sharing is not as popular as a decade ago.

Can I change my username if I want to without having to create a new user account, and is it necessary to fill the forum which asks for your date and year of birth. And is there any system of minimum age on the site, if there is, what is the minimum age required. Sorry for so many questions :oops:.

Only way is for admin (me) to change your user-id without you having to create another account.
There's no age limit on site and you don't have to put your birth date if you don't want to.

How does the promotion from newbie to Moderator/Admin work, like I became a super member, and you are an Admin and a moderator as well. What does one have to do to become a Super Member or Moderator. :thanks: just wanted to know :).
