In order to partner with the Phoenix Community, there are a few requirements you'll have to meet to even be considered. They are as follows:
The owner/ applicant must be at least 16 years old; no exceptions.
The organization/ group/ server requesting a partnership must have at least 50 existing human members
The organization/ group/ server must act in an official manner; no poor grammar, underage staff/members or non-english groups (yet).
The owner/ applicant and relevant staff must already be/ become a member of the Phoenix Community (If you are unsure what this means, see the FAQ)
Here at Phoenix Gaming, we don't believe in that standard ad for ad type of partnership. Our partners have to have a personal touch, we want to be involved in what's happening so that we can help each other grow in a unique way. So how do we do our advertising? It's all done through our website, see the example below.
With a partnership we will post a strip on our website dedicated to your group/ organization. It will look something like this:
Your banner/ Graphic goes here
Title/ description here. Be as descriptive as possible.
Add a logo here (if you want)
Link to your group here (under logo, or clickable logo)
An announcement will be made on our discord/platforms regarding your partnership, but it will be linked to this strip so use your space wisely!
Now here's the other side of it. Partnerships go two ways- we help you and you help us. That's it. It's literally that simple.
Here's what we want: an announcement to your group/ organization, and a permanently visible link to our website- www.phoenixgaming.info. We want this permanently visible because of the nature of our platform, its not as easy as copy and pasting an advertisement like most discord servers do. Our discord is not our main focus, so we direct traffic to this site first.
If your group is based on discord, this is as easy as an @everyone and a locked voice channel.

Being an affiliate is like being a partner but more in depth. Think of it in the sense of how businesses work, afterall we are a business by technicality. When you you become an affiliate it is like saying "I am my own organization but I operate under Phoenix Gaming." It's not merging your group, and it certainly is not us taking over.

Difference between Partners, Affiliates, and Sub Servers
The difference can be hard to tell so let's break it down. Partnerships have the least involvement from Phoenix Gaming, Ad for ad and cooperative staff. Affiliates are branded under Phoenix Gaming, but maintain their individuality and separate ownership. Sub Servers are owned and ran by Phoenix Gaming Administrators, making them owned by us but giving that admin complete control of how it is run. If you still have questions, don't be afraid to ask us!
