Your site must have a unique design, and offer a unique service.
Sites may range from fan sites, development/editing sites, or
other types of sites. GameVisions reserves the right to reject
any site propositions for any reason, or without given reason.
Sites must be updated in a timely manner. That does not mean
once every two weeks. We mean OFTEN. As you have likely noticed,
many gaming and hardware magazines don't offer hosting services.
Having come through the ranks ourselves, we understand the need
to find a good source to be connected with, but a lot of work
also comes with the territory of being associated with a large
mass-market site. We accept only the best of ideas, so try to
make it a good one. Don't be afraid to try, either, what may seem
not great to you, may very well be the next best thing to hit
All sites must have a large viewing audience. We won't give
a speciffic number, because every different type of site has a
good adequate number. Statistics on unique, as well as total hits
preferable. We don't want some second rate "I did it overnight"
sites, you site must have a thorough design. While having a cult-following
is always nice, we also realize the difficulty for an up-and-coming
site just hitting the market, and will certainly consider hosting
them. All sites submitted for recommendation must have a complete,
or near-complete design and format, as well as expected ratings,
and target audience.
Your submission for application signifies that you agree with
the rules set forth here. You will be asked to confirm that you
have read and agree to these terms. Also note that both GameVisions
and -- reserve the right to terminate your site without notice
for any reason, or without given reason. Also note that you do
not recieve any money for ad banners. It takes money for GIN
and GameVisions to keep the servers and the sites going, and therefore,
at the level of a "hosted" (non-network affiliated) there is not
enough revenue generated to warrant fees. The purpose of the GameVisions
Network hosting program is for smaller sites and fan sites who
do not pull off enough ratings to warrant a major network affiliateship
to find a place that offers everything they need to run a gaming
site, free of charge, and within their own community. Put it this
way, what we offer sure beats some lengthy GeoCities URL that
will nary be found :).
