I am currently wading through the posts on all the forums with a view to eliminating advertisements. I hope to have finished the task by the end of this week. This is first and foremost because the forum rules and regs state clearly that this is not allowed and second because some people are rightfully complaining about "unfair treatment" as some advert-type posts have slipped passed me whereas others were deleted.
If you want to advertise something, be it services or goods, please just contact Mike Gibbs to see if you qualify for a free or paid listing on this site. If you have skills and want someone to employ you, put it in the Looking For Work section.
Anything that smacks of an advert will be automatically deleted.
Also, if you are replying to someone who wants information about services or goods, please send them a PM. In PMs you can talk as much as you like about your wares. It is NOT NECESSARY to put a note on the forum saying "I have sent you a PM" for the simple reason the interested party will already KNOW you have sent them a PM. Such posts will be deleted.
DO NOT SEND UNSOLICITED PMs. If I do get any further reports of this happening the sender will be banned from the site.
Sorry folks, rules are rules and they are there for everyone's good.
