Frequently Asked Questions
How Do i submit rules
If you already have a set of rules published on the Web send me an email with : Rules Name, Description and weblink.
can you host the rules for me
If you don't have your own webspace then I can host the rules for you. There are a couple of conditions the size of the document cannot be larger than 5 megabyte and they must be in an appropriate format (see below) and must not breach the copyright of any other set of commercial rules.
what format should rules be in
Ideally Adobe PDF format, Microsoft Word or OpenOffice format. If you have a word processor to write your rules on they can easily be converted to PDF by installing free PDF software on your machine (doPDf, Primopdf or PDFcreator) or use an online conversion tool (zamzar).
I have a set of rules but they are larger than the 5mb limit
In that case create yourself an account with Box.net or Dropbox and upload the file there. Share the link and then send the link to me.
i have an old set of commercial rules that are no longer in print can you have them on your site
No not unless the copyright holder has expressly agreed for them to be shared. Even though they are out of print the original author still retains copyright over them.
why don't you have a review section up to review the rules or rate them
This has been asked a number of times. I do not intend to put a review section on the site as it is too time consuming to create. If you would like to create your own review site for free rules please fell free to do so.
how do i contact you
Use the contact link at the top of the page.
can you supply stats on how many times my rules have been downloaded
No I can no longer do this. If you want to monitor your own downloads then you will be required to host them on your own website and let me have the link to it.
who owns freewargamesrules
The site is owned by Pete Jones a wargamer from Wrexham in Wales. I have been wargaming since the 1970's. My first website was created in 1997 for the now defunct Wrexham & District Wargames Club. I was the first website to solely list and collate free rules from across the World Wide Web. In 2000 I purchased the freewargamesrules domain name.
