How to promote a new region...
...without making everybody want to kill you.
That's what I'd like to know.
I just founded a new region entitled "Blackwater Park" for fans of the band Opeth, and I would like to know where IS and is NOT OK to advertise, so that I don't get myself into any trouble.
Rules on advertising -
You MAY telegram nations in the pacifics regarding it.
You MAY post on the Feeder regions CH boards, this include the five pacifics and the Rejected Realms.
You MAY post here in "GamePlay" on the forums regarding your region.
You MAY NOT post on player created regions CH boards.
You MAY NOT telegram a nation more than once regarding your region.
Telegramming nations not in the feeder regions is risky, and from what I believe rules are still pending on this strategy of advertising.
Although you may post on feeder regions CH boards, many of the feeder regions nations find it disruptive. As long as you stick to these guidelines, you will be ok, whatever a non-mod may telegram you.
One way to limit the randomness and spam appearance of your telegrams is to make ther forum based. So if you find someone in the forum who shares ideas that you think would fit well in a region, send that person a telegram, be tactful and understanding.
Those guidelines above are superb.
When posting on Feeder regions' CH boards:
Don't advertise more than once every few days.
Don't make incredibly long advertisements with stories and songs and poems and all that jazz in them. One paragraph should be the limit.
Heh thanks Powerhungry Chipmunks,
anyway what Serpania says is partly true, you are allowed to post once every 24 hours on a feeder region CH board. And although there is no rules on posting long adverts, people tend not to read the long ones, and therefor it won't have as much effect.
