    Video – Comment submissions include posts and comments for videos on YouTube, Dailymotion, Veoh and other video hosting websites.
    You must make comments related to gaming, online gaming, MMORPG, and other videos that you can apply the keywords we described in Post Info. There is no limit to this type of submission.

    Conditions:
    -Comments must be relevant to the video being commented
    -Comments must include keywords related to the video theme and suggest Aeria Games
    -Comments must include a URL web address for Aeria Games’ homepage or a specific Aeria game like Last Chaos, Grand Fantasia, etc. The next 2 points cover how to write the URL web address

    -URL web addresses in the comment MUST be written in the following format:
    -If the video is about Shaiya –
    Format: shaiya(dot)aeriagames(dot)com
    -If the video is about a free online game and you want to refer viewers to our games list webpage –
    Format: aeriagames(dot)com(slash)games

    -Comments must be at least 1 short paragraph in length — More is acceptable as long as you stay on-topic and do not over-stuff the comment with keywords
    -Our staff must not have to log in in order to see your comment
    -When submitting, you must include your post name (YouTube username) so we can identify you among many posts.

    Acceptable Comments:
    -“This video does a lot to capture the action of this great MMO. I’ve played a similar one called Shaiya from Aeria Games. If you’re interested, try checking out shaiya(dot)aeriagames(dot).com ”
    -“I have seen better videos of this game on SiteB. It has some pretty good quality anime MMORPG vids and vids of free online games. Aeria Games also has good games with in-game vids here aeriagames(dot)com(slash)games”

    Unacceptable Comments:
    -“Checkitout aeriagames(dot)com” <– Reason: Spam
    -"Dude this game sucks, y'all should try grandfantasia at grandfantasia(dot)aeriagames(com)" <– Reason: Spam
    -"Great vid for a great MMO. I like the part at 2:32 when the sword glows. Here's a free anime MMORPG with a good site and videos http://grandfantasia.aeriagames.com&quot; <– Reason: Good message, but it has a full URL and will probably be removed
    -"mmorpgs, online games, free to play and download, best anime mmorpg right here! grandfantasia(dot)aeriagames(dot)com!" <– Reason: Keyword spam, not a comment that helps viewers

    About the URL web address format
    The "(dot)" and "(slash)" text (without quotation marks) is essential because YouTube and other video hosting websites do NOT allow "http://&quot;, "www" or ".com", ~.com/games, etc. in their video comments in order to prevent spam.
    We would like to see good quality comments on the videos in addition to the URL web address.

    Cautionary Remarks
    -DO NOT put only the URL web address as this will be counted as spam
    -DO NOT bash or insult other comments or attack other users
    -DO NOT respond to bashing or attacks by other users
    -Respect posting/commenting guidelines for each video hosting website respectively
    -If we cannot find your comment due to deletion by the website, or by not providing your post name, you will not receive AP

    AP Award
    Video – Comment submissions are worth 50 AP per verified post.

  5. TWITTER SUBMISSIONS UPDATE
    Everyone’s feedback on Facebook was very useful for us to clarify and improve on a few points for Twitter submissions:
    1) Tweet posts must be submitted by EMAIL ONLY
    -in light of the nature of tweet submissions, the play-ninja submission form is not efficient
    2) In the subject box, put “Twitter; Aeria Name; Post Name” AND in the body text, list out each tweet’s date/time (one per line), no need to copy/paste the tweet content itself
    – this way you can submit multiple tweets in one email and we can check one by one
    *”Post Name” = “Twitter account name”
    Example:
    Tweet – new; 04/30/10; 8:30am
    Tweet – retweet; 04/30/10; 8:33am

    TIP #1: Highlighting and copying the time and date next to the Twitter post, will automatically create a link when that content is pasted in an email (for submitting)
    TIP #2: To make it easier for everyone, please submit Twitter posts in groups of 5 or 10 per email.
    Caution:
    -ALL tweets and retweets you post must be UNIQUE, no repeated tweets or retweets should be visible on your Twitter account page.
    -No AP will be awarded for chain letter tweets (“retweet this and you’ll live until age 115”) or back-and-forth tweet chat (“Dude did you play GF anime mmorpg last night?” “Yeah, I did play GF anime mmorpg!”). Save these tweets for your own personal tweet activity.

    We hope this clears up any confusion. Please let us know if this helps!
