There are dozens of threads here now gauging interest from potential packages to showcasing early in development packages with the intent to submit to Epic soon. According to the rules though all of these threads should be moved from this forum to the Works in Progress thread. I was subject to just this yesterday and it’s brought me to question whether this rule should be changed or not. There is a clear different between content that is aimed at being developed for the marketplace and showcase materials in general.

These are just threads on the first page of the Marketplace forum and these would all get shoveled off into the Works In Progress forum. Now in full disclosure this happened yesterday to my own Infinite Knives and Blades thread that I made yesterday and I can’t understand why my thread would be moved and these be allowed to remain. So I’d like start a conversation as to what the deal is with the discrepancy between the rules, the actual threads that are allowed to remain that don’t follow the “Only post items that are already available on the Marketplace” rule, the threads that moved to the WIP forum, and when topics can return from WIP to the marketplace forum at all.
Because either all of these threads should be moved by the moderators to the WIP forum or the rules should be adjusted to be more flexible now that the state of the UE4 community has evolved. I would like to keep conversation civil and polite. I think that by not moving threads like the above to WIP for so long this forum has implicitly accepted that the threads like the above, and my own knives pack, should allowed to remain in the Marketplace forum and that the official rules for this forum should be changed.
