Website Showcase Guidelines

Website Showcase Guidelines

The purpose of this section is to allow members to submit their websites for review by our site members and Staff. We accept submissions from a wide variety of platforms including, but not limited to, HTML, IP.Board, vBulletin, XenForo, etc. Keep in mind that these reviews may not always be positive, so consider this before submitting your site for review.

Members must have at least 15 non-spam posts before submitting a website for review.
Submissions must contain the following information:

  • Website Link
  • Date of Creation
  • Site Description
  • Number of Members

All submissions will be hidden until approved by a WebFlake Staff member. After submission, it may take up to 72 hours for the approval process to be completed. If your site is not approved, a Staff member will send you a private message indicating the reasons.

The criteria we are looking for includes:

  • Is the site's design complete? We realize that all websites are constantly in a state of being a "work in progress", however, in order to be approved, your website must have all applicable basic design elements completed — such as skin, logo, favicon, sidebars, homepage etc.
  • Is the site easily accessible? It is difficult to do a review of a website if, for example, your site's link brings guests to a registration page. While we understand that some areas of a website are "premium" or restricted areas, there should still be ample areas of the website which guests can review. Guests should not be required to register at your website in order to review it. All submitted sites should be in English (or have a reasonable option for English-speaking users).
  • If the site offers services, are these services available? For example, if you have a modding site, your site should actually have ample amounts of mods on it.
  • Is the site active? Due to the likelihood of most users submitting newer sites for traffic or registrations, please do not submit sites that are largely inactive or have an awfully low member count.
  • Does the site have content? Sites with empty forums and empty applications (such as Gallery and Downloads) will not be approved. Adding content is hard work - and only sites that have actually done the work will be approved for review.

Keep in mind that the Website Review section is not a "Looking for members" or "Looking for Staff" area. We feel that if someone visits your site and finds it interesting, they will join your site.
Do not submit sites that have similar sections and/or have copied/leeched materials from WebFlake (you will likely be suspended/banned from WebFlake if you do this).
Once approved, please keep the following in mind:

  • Please only submit websites that you personally own/run. Do not submit websites for a friend.
  • If your site will be "down" for maintenance for any period of time, please edit your original post to alert our Staff of the specific details. Otherwise, all dead links will be removed.
  • Do not "bump" your submission once it has been approved. If you have made updates to your site, please edit your original post.
  • Longstanding, inactive accounts and/or websites will be deleted.

We welcome all members to review all sites which have been approved in our Website Reviews forum. Keep the following in mind when replying to a submitted site's topic:

  • While negative reviews are acceptable, they should be constructive.
  • Posting something such as "I like it", "Nice site" or "I don't like it" are not acceptable. Take a moment to explain why you like or dislike the site. (The reviews can be very short, but should contain specific things you like or dislike)
  • Sites should not be reviewed by its Staff members.
  • After writing a review, be sure to "rate" the site using the "rate the topic" stars at the top of the topic (this is not required but can be helpful). Please do not rate topics unless you have provided a review.
  • Do not ask to become a Staff member at one of the posted sites in these forums or via private messages. If you are interested in being considered for a Staff position at one of the sites listed here, please join that site and apply for any open Staff positions there.
  • Do not request a copy of the site's theme, hooks, applications, or other content. This is not a support section.
  • Keep in mind that writing good reviews — whether positive or negative — are one of the ways we will evaluate your membership here at WebFlake.


These guidelines, parameters, and thresholds are subject to change at any time, at the discretion of WebFlake administration.
