What's the etiquette for adding games that are currently in playtest or in the ashcan stage? I want to add Apocalypse World, but I'm not an active member of this community, and thus don't want to step on any toes.

Thanks,
Noah

Hi Noah... according to our Guide to Data Entry:

Quote:
Beta Products, Homebrews, Prototypes

Beta Products that are released in a tangible form (PDF, Book, Download of some kind) are okay to list.
Homebrews have their own special [rpg] bin called Homebrew RPG. Please make use of it for games you've developed but do not plan to publish or major derivations of existing systems that have been developed (including unofficial releases like "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (3rd Edition)". It's a bit of a sandbox really.
Prototypes have their own special [rpg] bin called Unpublished Prototypes. Please make use of it for games that are in development (though major games that have a definite scheduled release and are in the final stages are considered under the "Upcoming Releases" below).

As soon as a game become published (self-published is fine) and has enough polish to be considered complete and playable, it should move out of Beta/Homebrews/Prototypes and be given its own [rpg] entry.
Upcoming Releases

If a publisher has a books in the works and it has as set date of release and has a reasonable amount of information available (designers, artists, etc) then it can be listed in our database. Since there is a lot of vapor-ware out there with small offerings, be sure that these entries are from reputable publishers and that it has a high probability of actually reaching a release point. We want people to discuss and get excited about upcoming releases but be sure this product is likely to see the light of day before entering it. At a minimum, it must have a target release date.

We ask that after you submit such an entry, you go back to the item and use the Add Tags feature you'll find near the top of the item listing. You should add a new tag called upcoming-release so that we can search for it later and fill in any missing/incorrect information for the product once it actually hits the streets.


You'll find the aforementioned RPG at [rpg=2348].
