World Publishing Guidelines

World Publishing Guidelines

You must adhere to the following guidelines for publishing worlds. These guidelines aim to help you publish worlds effectively so that users can quickly and easily find what they're looking for.

World Publishing Guidelines

All published worlds must adhere to the Content Guidelines.

Published worlds must not:

  • Be empty, or an unedited template world

  • Contain any references to Sansar, Sansar inc. or Sansar-related terminology that may imply a false relationship with or sponsorship, endorsement, or employment by Sansar.

The following requirements apply to all text associated with worlds:

  • Only alphanumeric and basic punctuation characters, such as commas, periods, slashes, colons, dashes, underscores, and quotation marks are allowed. Sansar does not support international and other special characters at this time.

  • Senseless or excessively repetitive use of characters, in Sansar’s sole discretion, is prohibited.

  • Avoid replacing letters with special characters or numbers (e.g., replacing “A” with “@” or “I” with “1”). You will want to make it easy for your item to appear in search results.

  • There should be no leading, trailing, or creeping white spaces.

  • Control characters and line feeds are not allowed.

  • References and links to external websites or stores are not allowed.

World Name

Each world name must:

  • Adhere to a character limit of 100 characters maximum (including spaces)

  • Be clear and accurate in order to make it easy for users to find your world.

  • Contain detailed descriptions instead of general terms. For example, instead of using “House” as a name, use something more specific such as “The Witch’s House” or “Kit’s House”.

  • Contain spaces in between words.

World Description

Each world description must:

  • Adhere to a character limit of 1,023 characters maximum (including spaces).

  • Describe the world clearly, honestly, and accurately. Keyword spamming is strictly prohibited.

  • Not contain leading, trailing or creeping white spaces; however, paragraphs are allowed.

World Image

Image File Requirements

Each image file must:

  • Be in PNG format.

  • Contain an aspect ratio of 16:9.

  • Not exceed a maximum file size of 10 MB.

  • Not exceed image dimensions as follow:

    • Minimum Dimensions: 480 pixels wide x 270 pixels tall

    • Maximum Dimensions: 1920 pixels wide x 1080 pixels tall

Image Content Guidelines

  • Accurately represent the world and must not be misleading.

  • Not include the Sansar logo, user interface, or other controls.

  • Not imply a false relationship with or sponsorship, endorsement, or creation by Sansar.

  • Not contain links

Additionally, images:

  • Should make your world stand out! We recommend the use of bright colors, interesting angles, and the like to make your world attractive.

  • May contain text; however, refrain from making it the focus of your image.

  • Should not use overly excessive borders, watermarks, logos, or inset images.
