Evony Fansites Kit

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

“We at Evony™ believe that we have the best player community around and that each of you support the success of the game; after all, since April 2009 we’ve had over 5,000,000 registered active players! Fansites bring large groups of the community together in many different and special ways and we at Evony™ want to show that we support those third party fansites, administrators and staff who dedicate significant time and resources to create a fansite or provide a fan service and keep it going at no cost to the community. We applaud your efforts! It is this type of community spirit we want to foster and encourage.

As such, we are proud to announce and release the Evony™ Community Fansite Program. When your Evony™ fansite or fan service is online and available and wishes to be reviewed, please contact us at [email protected] We will be reviewing your fansite or fan service and if it meets our preliminary requirements, you’ll receive soon after an application form and we’ll begin the formal review process.

If after the formal review process your fansite or fan service qualifies for being included in the Program, we will add your site or service to the Community Fansite webspace which will be located on the official Evony™ website with a direct link to your site! We’ll also be publishing the fact of your fansite being accepted.

If after the formal review processes your fansite or fan service does not qualify for being included in the Program, we will provide immediate constructive feedback on how you can perhaps change or expand your fansite or service to qualify for listing. You can re-apply, but only once per 30 days.

We’re sorry, the Program is not for Alliance websites.

For approved Fansites each recognition level has different rewards!

The Program

There are three recognition levels in the Evony™ Community Fansite Program:

  • Prinzessin Class Evony™ Fansite
  • Earl Class Evony™ Fansite
  • Knight Class Evony™ Fansite

All qualified fansites will have the Knight Class upon successful review and application into the Program. A Knight Class fansite may apply for Earl class after it has been a qualified listed fansite for a minimum of thirty days. An Earl class fansite may apply for Prinzessin class only after it has been an Earl class for thirty days and must meet the requirements.

Evony™ is setting a high standard for the fansites that we include on our Community Fansite area, and this reflects on the desire to have fansites that have a positive effect on the community.

Please read below for the requirements at each level in the program:
