Exclamation REMINDER: DO not advertise your threads!!

I've seen this a lot lately.
I'll go to my profile, and I'll see a new message from someone I do not know at all who wrote 'Come join my contest! Here is the link: XXXX'.
I've seen them on profiles (Including mine), threads, and through private messaging.

Advertising threads is NOT allowed! The ONLY time it is allowed is in your signature.

If you ever see somebody advertising a thread, be sure to report it! This is considered spam.

**Your are allowed to invite friends.. but don't go around and spam on users' profiles who you do not know!**

Please remember to follow the rules, and let users COME to your thread.

Ohh, I wasn't sure if you were allowed to advertise, I've gotten many through PM and profile messaging. So you can't invite your friends to join a contest or club you made or something? Thanks for the reminder though!

No inviting people you know and who are your friends/contacts are fine, but don't go around spamming everyone in sight's profiles and PM boxes with your thread advertisements.

Oh okay, I wanted to make sure that it was okay inviting my friends, I do that often. Thanks for the reminder, I hate it when people post on other threads saying "Hey check out my new thread!" That does get very annoying, I'll report it when I see it!

Yes I've got invitations for "Howling Moon Contests" and "Anna Banana Productions" and all sorts of things! It's really confusing and irritating when you don't know who the person is! Although I do enjoy participating in the contests, it's annoying with the spam!

Inviting your friends is fine. It is spamming the forum or profiles of people you don't know that is considered spam. It will be deleted, if you see it, you can report it to a mod.
