Mike posted a topic in AnnouncementsThere has been a rise lately of people advertising their Magazines, Blogs, Forums, Websites and Channels to entice members to sign up for their modelling musings, and it's now got to the stage where we need to call a halt to it. It is becoming more apparent that some members can't limit themselves to just a single post about it in their quest to get subscribers and from those subscribers, subsequent advertising revenue from their enterprise. We have kept a watch on things and it has increased in frequency until it has now become irritating. From now on, we will remove any thread that has teaser photographs inviting you to see the rest in a magazine or those posts that invite/link to blogs, sites, Facebook Page or YouTube channel etc. without discussion. However, anyone that wishes to have a link to their chosen magazine, blog, website or channel in their signature may still do so as long as it meets the usual signature criteria, and is not of the animated type. Why have we done this? We took the decision very early on that Britmodeller was not to be run as an advertising platform for our own, or anyone else's benefit. For the sole reason that we dislike the intrusion upon the enjoyment of the honest content, we have stuck to this way of thinking with a great deal of support from the membership. Having people advertising their own commercial ventures such as magazines, blogs, YouTube channels, forums etc. makes a mockery of that aim. Britmodeller is a community of modellers, for modellers, not a profit generation opportunity. This site exists on the generosity of members providing donations, please don't abuse their generosity.
