If you run a website which is focused on Dungeons and Dragons Online™ Stormreach™ (DDO), we'd like to help you increase your traffic!
Approved fansites will receive these benefits:

A direct link from DDO's Fansite Page (https://www.ddo.com/en/community/fansites).
Inclusion on our email list, through which we keep fansites updated on the latest announcements and events for DDO.
Fansites will be reviewed on a regular basis, and some may be selected for Spotlight Features on http://www.DDO.com.

To be considered for approval and listing on DDO's Fansite Page, websites must meet the following criteria:

Content must be at least 70% focused on DDO.
Content must be updated on at least a monthly basis.
Sites must provide a clear link to http://www.DDO.com. (http://www.ddo.com./)
Site administrators must be age 18 or over.
Sites must already be online and receiving public visitors. At least some news and information should be accessible to users without registration.
Guild websites are not eligible as a fansite. To promote your guild we suggest using the Guild Matchup (http://forums.ddo.com/forumdisplay.php?f=39) forums.
Sites must not contain any illegal, unauthorized, offensive, or objectionable content or promote the violation of Turbine's terms of service, code of conduct or end user license agreements.
Sites cannot contain any copyrighted material (code, images, text or otherwise) without express permission from the original source. However, DDO assets which have been previously published, publicly distributed or released by Turbine may be used in site creation and content.
Sites must not contain defamatory content or references to any Turbine or Wizards of the Coast property, other products relating to the Wizards of the Coast.

Turbine may remove links from DDO's Fansite Page (http://compendium.ddo.com/wiki/Fansite_listing) at any time for any reason or no reason with or without notice to the Fansite administrator.
To apply to have your site included in the fansite program, post a thread in this forum with the following information:

The name of your fansite.
The fansite's URL.
A brief (around 50 words max) description of your fansite's content (if your site is accepted, this description will be displayed in your site's entry).
The email address(es) you would like added to our email list for news and announcements. (They will not be displayed in the listing.)

It may take 24 to 48 for your listing to be reviewed and appear. We may revise the submission process in the future.
