Default Spam / advertising ?

I belong to other forums and most have strict rules against blatant advertising (or what some may term spam). But that doesn't seem to be the case here, or at least it appears unmoderated. Is that the case?

Sure - in the tutorials forum.

I would assume most have the same perception and that is when going to the tutorial forum and clicking a subject / post, they will be able to read a tutorial.

However, when clicking on The Sensual Woman Glamour Lighting Workshop all you get is an advertisement.

Personally, I think that's placed in the wrong forum. It's not a Tutorial, it's an advertisement. The poster is a regular here, though, so I don't fault him for posting it...I just think it would be better placed in a more appropriate forum

Yeah, that thread should be in Announcements. I moved it.

There are currently over 48,500 threads on this site. We miss a few.
