Default Why do people...

...send other members on WI VMs and ask them to visit their shops - either pet naming shops or avvie/siggie shops? It is incredibly annoying. If I needed a name for a new pet, I would have gone there myself without their asking me to! And I like my own avvie and siggie so why on earth would I change it? Just because I don't change it every few days (exaggeration) doesn't mean I want a new one!

And also, isn't it illegal to do that? I thought I remembered reading somewhere it was illegal to do that kind of thing.

Even if it's not illegal, those who do it, please stop it. It's annoying.

Default Re: Why do people...

I agree with you to a point. If somebody you're really close to says, "Oh, and I changed my A/S shop the other day; would you mind checking it out when you can?" I wouldn't mind that; and I actually might say something like that. I find it rude if somebody random (and this does happen to me often) that I don't even know says "Check out my shop PLEASE!! Please please please there's no posts and I'm sad thanks!" and then they give the link. If that's the case, I'm annoyed so I ignore the post. That, is against the rules. (Not illegal; you won't go to jail! )
So, I think that if you're just letting your friend know that you've added things to your shop or opened a new one up, etc, that's perfectly fine to let them know once or twice. But if you're a complete stranger advertising on everybody's profile, that is against the rules; simply click the report button if you see this or it happens to you.

This is against the rules. If a friend posted on my profile saying "Hey I updated my shop check it out" It would be ok but people you don't know shouldn't be advertising on your profile. This is spamming and you should flag it if you see it again.

Not illegal, against the rules. If someone points it out nicely "Oh, BTW, i just opened a shop, wanna look?" and don't give you a link, let you do it on your own, then thats OK, but a random profile posted "PLLLLLLLLEAAASSSEEE COME TO MY SHOP! I"M HAPPY! THAT UR COMING!!! CLICK HERE (link)" is ANNOYING! i agree, definantly agree!
