Advertising on TLA

Tue Dec 28, 2010 7:47 pm

Hey folks,

Over the last few weeks we've had several incidents of people joining our website with the apparent sole intent of advertising models for sale, on websites and eBay. At TLA, we are a community, not an online market place. We do NOT want people to join solely to advertise - anyone doing so will have their thread locked, and be asked to not do it again. If they turn out to be an active member of the community, and they wish to advertise as part of that, we can accommodate that. In the new site, we may put in some system for allowing people of a certain rank or post count or something to advertise eBay auctions or put up things for swapping, but at the moment, we don't have that facility.

For those of you that are regular members, we don't have a problem with you popping up a thread about an eBay auction or asking about swaps - preferably in the Off Topic forum. What we want to avoid is becoming an advertising spot for eBay vendors.

I hope this clears things up for people, but if any of you do have any questions, please don't hesitate to post here, or drop any of the Rangers a message.

Thanks guys, Champ Out! :)

Isn't there a way to make (I think) universal threads that can be seen in every forum? That way really important things like this would be seen everywhere, and so people trying to sell stuff would have no excuse for not seeing the warning. Otherwise they have to know to look here first.
