No Advertising Here
Given the number of threads and posts we have been deleting lately, I feel it's time for another reminder. This forum (the Team and Company Discussions) is not an advertising vehicle.
Acceptable Use Includes (but is not limited to):
- Talking about team-related activities (upcoming races, results, etc)
- Talking and/or giving feedback to team drivers
- Talking about a company in the general sense
- Asking questions about products
- General chat
Unacceptable Use Includes (but is not limited to):
- Website updates and links
- New stock arrivals
- New product announcements
- Sales and special deals
- Solicitation of products and/or services
- Any thread at all from a retail-only operation, online or otherwise
As those of you who have been here a long time are surely aware, I have always done whatever I could to keep the "anything goes" discussion atmosphere here at R/C Tech. It saddens me that we have to police this as much as we do, but in recent times as we have seen more than a few places cancel their ads and continue to post announcements and sales in here, it became obvious what was going on (at least a couple of the more honest ones have said as much to me).
I have also gotten an extremely, extremely negative reaction from some of you whose posts or threads I have removed. I don't know what to say other than, I'm sorry, but we have to pay our costs and hopefully make this site worth our while. Our operating costs have almost doubled since this time last year. I'm not asking for pity, I'm just asking for understanding--what we do is not to hold anybody back, but rather to protect our one and only revenue stream.
If anybody has any questions, I absolutely encourage you to talk to me about it.
