RP Submission Guide

Ready to submit your RP to the directory? Amazing! If you've not already registered and activated your account, check out the Getting Started Guide.

Before you submit

To be listed in the directory, you'll need to satisfy the advertisement requirements. We recommend making sure you do this before submitting your advert, so we can approve your advert faster. Requirements change a little depending on the type of roleplay you're submitting.

Advertising requirements:

  • Have the TRN affiliate button visible on your main page, in a static (non-scrolling) position (preferred) or
  • Have the TRN advert pinned at the top of your Guest Friendly Advertising forum or
  • Have a text link to TRN included on an affiliates/similar page easily accessible from your main index (for sites/groups that do not have an existing affiliate table, or who list their affiliates in a different way) or
  • Have a link to TRN pinned in a resources/similar channel (Discord only) or
  • Another method that suits your group/site. Come chat to us in the #Site-Help channel of our Discord server to work out what works for you!

You can find current copies of the advert and affiliate button code in the Advertising Materials page.

Creating a submission

To start your RP submission, select "New RP Group Listing" from the Sites > Roleplay Groups menu, or click this link here

It might look like a lot, but most of it is checkboxes. Each field and tag is designed to help potential members find your site fast, the more information you can give, the better matched your RP will be for people searching through our system.
