Hello everyone. Got a (perhaps) unusual question. Just stumbled across somebody's guide and right in the first section there is a giant-*** Paypal donation link assaulting your eyes before even one word is said about how to play the champion the guide is on.

Is this allowed under Terms & Conditions or Guide Rules? Honestly interested. If so, why? If not, why?

Thanks,

Swuft

I've only seen this a couple of times, but I think it's allowed.

According to the free user agreement, any guides you make belong to MOBAFire royalty free, so theoretically they could tell you to knock it off. However, shouldn't really be an issue, considering you're making a product that costs time, and drawing people to the site. They may institute rules regarding how/if but until a mod/admin moves this to site support and responds, we can't know for sure.
Thank you Jovy for this bomb *** sig!

Yeah figured, but I thought it could promote discussion one way or the other so here it is haha.

I've seen Donate buttons in a lot of different places. I even had one on my Ashe guide in like, 2012. I never got any donations though :P

Not sure of the rules regarding it, but I assume it'd be like a Youtuber putting a donation link in the description, or a link to Patreon.

Yeah we don't have any rules against including donation links.

If it's super obnoxious or deceptive (trying to trick people into giving them money) we might do something about that though.

Edit: Changed my comment a little. Guides with a donation link are okay, guides that exist just to throw donation buttons all over the place, not so much.
Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!
