Notice About Special Offers
« on: December 04, 2013, 02:15:24 PM »
Hi Guys,

Just a quick forum policy notice about posting offers in the "Special Offers" section:

Starting today, if the majority of your forum posts are offers then there's a very good chance your offers are going to get deleted.

I have no problem with offers being posted. But at least have the common decency to be a participating member here.  It's not that hard ... and you'll probably make more sales as a result of your increased participation in the forum.

Please note that I'm not trying to be a jerk. We're all marketers here and I'm all for making money. But this forum has a great bunch of members who sincerely try to help each other and I'm not going to allow one or two members to ruin that for the rest of us.

Thanks,
Mark

I glad you did this as it is best every thing is in the same area. I do not think your being a jerk as the forum is really growing and things need to be done.

 :::tu Way to go Mark. You're not a jerk. You're as good as it gets. You have a very understandable point. If they can't understand it, too bad for them. We are an active community. If you post an offer, that's the least you can do is be there to address any concerns and stay active with your offer. Active offers are useless without active owners.

I noticed this too. There would always be people who need to be reminded of the rules.  *duh*

Mark,
You are the opposite of a jerk. (Is that krej?) If anything, you're sometimes too nice, although I hate even saying that. In this day and age, there's really no such thing as too nice if it's sincere.
