Are fan remixes / remakes of video game music allowed to be posted here? I could see them being deemed a violation of the Illegal Activities rule due to copyright (and even if legal - which I assume it may be due to the prevalence of them on the web and other sites with harsh copyright regimes not prohibiting them - I'm well aware GameFAQ's definition of "Illegal Activities" is loosely based on the law at best).
Nope. I'm totally not the white ninja. You're confusing me with someone else.

Provided you're just doing it for entertainment and aren't profiting from it, you should be fine under fair use laws. As far as site rules go, if it's a topic about "what is your favorite video game music" (just as an example) and you said "I like this remix: <youtube link>", then you're fine. If you just go into random topics and link to it you'll likely be moderated for spam or disruptive posting.

I don't have any of my own, I was just thinking more in the context of sharing ones that I've found and like. Yeah, I wasn't intending to spam it, just wondering whether it's okay if it comes up. (The question was provoked by that I was listening to them at the time and wondered "Hm, would I be allowed to share these on GameFAQs?")
Nope. I'm totally not the white ninja. You're confusing me with someone else.

As long as it is appropriate to the discussion at hand, there should be no reason it wouldn't be okay to post.
