Rules for Manialink addresses and manialinks list

Post by gouxim » 24 Jan 2012, 14:37

On the player page, you can manage your Manialink addresses. Some new rules were introduced in ManiaPlanet so here are the official rules. They were made (quoting hylis) to avoid some players to borrow to many "key" name for manialink and enable the community to have a wider share of address.

Must be at least 6 chars
We only enable the Manialink with 6 letters or more. It should avoid many obvious short words in many langages that players tend to use, like 'home' or 'test' or 'link' etc.

Cannot begin or end with "mania"
We disable any Manialink starting with Mania and ending with Mania. We keep them for ourselves inside the game. We have a welcoming attitude with people calling stuff *Mania*, but these names, ingame, are too offical look a like to leave this to go up to there. Example: Manianews. This is something we used for years internally, that Ubisoft use on the website, that we say nothing against it for the youtube channel, but that would be a trouble for us to see on an internal Manialink.

Monthly fee of 100 Planets
It will cost planets to keep a name per month. We would like to avoid people trying to have as much manialink as possible and even letting them for years in a corner without updating it. The domain names will be then released again when they stop to pay the planets cost. Some will have no trouble to afford a lot, but at least, it will be a way to contribute to putting back in the system the planets.

I think it was only written in the Beta forum, so some people that weren't in the beta were confused.

Can you make a new rule for a manialink?
The manialink bryan199813 is offline for some months, and I don't like this.

It includs blogs with ManiaPress, participation in tournaments with the future "Competitions" Manialink of Nadeo... The possibility are important and will evolve in the future, thanks to the community.

We know it can be difficult to find a particular manialink. So Mania-Actu has decided to propose a Community list where everyone can add their manialink, with a description and tags to classify and database it the right way. The list of tags can evolve, do not hesitate to tell us if you think we need to add some or other search options.

The longer the list is complete, the more it will be usefull for the community. So do not hesitate to talk to your friends who create ManiaLinks.

You can find the list in the menu Community / Manialinks or directly here: http://mania-actu.com/eng/manialinks
