Captain Commando here!

This part of the forum is for posting your Metroid creations! You can post links or embed smaller files here. There are hundreds and hundreds of people who have made work that is in honor of or inspired by Metroid, and here's your chance to show us some of it!

You can put any kind of thing here. Fanfic, fanart, remixes, fan games, Metroid-themed computer programs, pictures of you cosplaying as a Metroid, instructions for Chozo yoga...you can even put links to other pages or images from them here if you think there's some cool Metroid stuff you want everybody to check out! The only thing that we request if you do so is that you put information on where you got the stuff so we have a better idea of who made it! (A link to the source would be nice...)

You can also comment on anything that's posted here - some people may even explicitly ask for feedback on a work in progress or a finished work! Just try to be friendly and constructive, as some people can't take harsh criticism very well!

Further, if you want to submit something to the Metroid Database, please read our submission guidelines here: http://www.metroid-database.com/fansub_guide.htm

Note that you can post a lot of things that might not be accepted to the site, and that's ok. Just be aware that we try to have stricter guidelines than this board for posted material (for one thing, you can't submit somebody else's work unless you have their explicit permission and contact information so we can double-check).

You can also put practically any content here. We'll allow straight-up Metroid pieces, crossovers (yes, crossovers and alternative universes are accepted here!), encyclopedia articles, EVEN fictitious advertisements for the Space Ball 20X5 Intergalactic Championships! If it has something to do with Metroid, you can put it here. If it's something you think is REALLY cool but doesn't have ANYTHING to do with Metroid but would still be TOTALLY awesome if we saw it...well, maybe you should consider posting it in the General forum. :wink:

However, we request that you don't put anything with gratuitous and/or explicit sex, violence, and language. This doesn't mean you can't have something that's a bit NSFW (not safe for work), but in general, if it's there, we expect there to be a reason for it. Here are some explicit limits:

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES MAY YOU POST OR LINK TO PORNOGRAPHIC OR X-RATED MATERIAL.

There are kids here, and this isn't a space brothel. This does not mean you can't anything that's risque, but it does mean that there is no frontal (or side, or backside) nudity. Please don't link to any of this stuff, either. Doing so will give you a strict warning or could get you banned depending on the severity. Anything of this nature will be deleted on site.

DO NOT PURPOSEFULLY LINK TO OR EMBED ANYTHING THAT IS OR CONTAINS MALICIOUS SOFTWARE. DOING SO WILL GET YOU BANNED. PERIOD.

Nobody likes it when their computer is purposefully damaged by something they thought was safe. We already have enough problems with viruses, spyware, and the like as it is. If you think your program has bugs that could cause problems, make sure everyone knows before they check it out! And above all, make sure you check your files for viruses!

FINALLY, A SUGGESTION

If you think there is material in the work you have posted that will probably get you in trouble if a minor sees it or that is NSFW, you might want to indicate that in the subject heading. Fanfiction.net has this policy and it seems to work pretty well there, so there's no reason you can't use it here.

Note that we DO have to pay attention to this stuff as per Galactic Federation Forum Protocol #4,976/B, or the concept of General Public Forum Decency.

And above all else -- have fun!

I have a question regarding posting other people's work without permission.

Almost 10 years ago when my older brother was in high school, a friend of his had drawn my Metroid fan-character (Tianna Flame) and gave the drawings to me. I never met this young lady, and it's been so long that I don't think that even my brother knows how to get into contact with her. I only know her first name, but she did sign the drawings with her initials. I would really like to share these drawings because they are a) special to me, and b) because they are well-drawn and nifty.

So will I not be able to post them because I am physically unable to get Charla's permission? Or because I own the drawings (i.e. They were given to me as a gift) will I be able to post them up regardless? :?

In case, it wasn't clear, this thread is just an announcement about what the Fan Stuff section of the board is about rather than a submissions page. If you actually want to submit stuff to the MDb through here, put as the thread title in big ol' caps 'SUBMISSION' along with something more descriptive.
