Welcome to the former forums for DidYouKnowGaming?! In March of 2013, VGFacts was launched and this community was merged into the new forums there. These forums were originally taken offline at that time but I brought them back as an archive while transferring sites to the new server. Registrations and all interaction (posting, editing, moderation, etc.) are disabled but everything can still be read. If you're interested in joining the community, head on over to https://www.vgfacts.com/forums/ and join there but I've always thought it was important to preserve a site's roots so these forums will forever be available in this read-only state. Enjoy!

Are There Any Legit "Rules" for Submitting DYKs?
When we submit Did You Knows to the site:

1. Is it preferred that they come from our own experiences with the games?
2. Is it acceptable to reference trivia from other sites so long as we credit the person that originally found the trivia?
3. For excellent Did You Knows that should be on this site, but are not (I've seen a good few that deserve to be here), should we suggest to that person to submit their findings on this site, or just submit that trivia with a reference?

Are there any other guidelines we should follow on the site?

I think the rules are derived from common sense, and rely on people's good judgment.
I, for one, don't really care who it's from. If some person on the internet has found it, credit it in your post, sure. But don't decide to avoid a fact just because you didn't personally find it.

I agree with Seriously though. If you know who found it, give them a mention. The information is more important. The credit in the images is just a little show of appreciation.
