Of all the Runelocus boards the one that needs to be monitored the most is the RSPS advertsement section. I decided to make a quick little guide/example to make a good Runelocus advertisement that follows the rules.

[SIZE=1][COLOR="#FF0000"]Before we start take a look at my thread title: LocusScape 718. A customary title should simply be your server name and revision. Don't forget to add a prefix of your revision on your title. Notice how the title doesn't name any features or other text except for what is necessary. This makes you look professional and helps keep the advertisement section clean. [/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][CENTER][COLOR="#FF0000"]This is your banner. Make or have a GFX designer (like myself :)) make you one. This helps show your server style and helps identify your server. Make it nice but not to large as thats against the rules. I'd say 650x150 would be the best.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][COLOR="#FF0000"]Here you can post a brief desrciption/intro of your server. This is not to be confused with features. Normally it would be longer then this example however I got kinda lazy[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[COLOR="#FF0000"][SIZE=1]Personally I think it's best that you keep your links together and near the top. You don't need to post a link to every url your server has. Good links would be, Websites, Downloads, Webclients, Forums,Wikis, and other IMPORTANT aspects of RSPS[/SIZE][/COLOR]

[SIZE=1][COLOR="#FF0000"]This is a big part of your advertisement. List some important, impressive and unique things your game includes. Don't lie about your features. I know mot of you think "I would never do that!" but it's actually more common then you think. Don't Say "active pking if when you log on, no one is in the wilderness. Don't say all minigames working if you haven't even tried out half of them. Try to keep your list short and sweet. If all the other servers have it or it came with your source, odds are it's just taking up space.[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][COLOR="#FF0000"]This is the most important part of your advertisement by far. If your server has a promo video that should go first. After that you should upload some pictures. There are 2 type of pictures: screenshots and Feature Ads. Everybody knows what a screenshot is but if you need help check out [URL="http://www.runelocus.com/forums/showthread.php?513-Guide-to-making-a-good-advertisement"]this[/URL] guide. Feature ads are more indept and include multiple screenshots. You can make them yourself or ask a GFX designer to do it (like me:)) Runelocus requires that the first 3 pictures are outside of a spoiler. If you have over 5-6 pictures I recommend you put them into a spoiler buy using [SPOIL*][/Spoil*][/COLOR][/SIZE]
