Or before it does. I’ll go first.
I totally understand the desire and need for those members with wares to sell to want to advertise in these forums.
I think that might be fine if limited to the
Industry | Retailers | Reviews
It wouldn’t bother me if someone placed an “ad” in that section. If there is a sale on some item or member discount then it should be there. Perhaps a link to that ad could be placed elsewhere in an appropriate section (i.e. a Hobbies & Habits sub section)
But I wouldn’t want to see ads just placed as new threads everywhere. As this forum grows that could quickly get cluttered and irritating.
Just my $0.01. ( my opinions today only are 50% off )
