Could someone give a more detailed description of the Advertisement section?

Petrarca has a sticky on there that says
"If you plan to advertise a service or website, please note the following:

You are allowed a total of ONE thread regarding your service/site/whatever. If your website or service is mentioned by you in more then 1 thread it will be deleted everywhere and you will be banned from further postings."

--------------

Lark, a mod on here, also said in another thread:

"The Terms of Use forbid advertising here. This is generally assumed to be advertising services for payment."

------------------

Does this mean that any services that are free are okay? But not ones that are charged?

Should we report the threads we see, for example the one by Tea7105 (no offense Tea7105, just trying to get clarification here) that clearly are offering services that are being charged?

As a side not if someone pays to use Google Adwords (technically it only costs money when someone clicks) to post a charging service will they be gagged?

You can find out how to advertise on this site at the bottom of the page by clicking "Advertise On SoM"

All this conflicting information is very confusing.

opps. I meant "side note", not "not".

I really wish I could edit posts.

If you have questions about how this site is set up and works then I'd suggest that you take it up with the Site Owner/Administrator. Petrarca is the one who make all of the rules here on Spells of Magic and he would be the one to clarify what he means when he sets out a rule.

No offense taken. I would like to know if I'm breaking the rules too. I thought what I was doing was ok but yeah.

Strictly speaking you are breaking the rules.One advertisement maybe forgiven, but really you are getting free advertising. So only do it once!
To advertise on this,or any other site, you have to register with an Agency, or with something like Google Adword. You will see the legitimate adverts on the left hand side of the page.
So, as Petrarca has said,you may advertise,as a Posting, once! Do it twice, and you will be gagged.

This only applies to goods or services with a money charge. Anything offered "free" is not advertising in the commercial sense.

So if I reply to someone in their thread about my tarot readings I'm breaking the rues then? If I delete my thread can I still have the information on my bio too or shold I just delete the thread?

If you are answering an enquiry, do it by private message. What you have on your bio is okay,because it is only viewed by members who want to view it:not on view to all members, as is a thread!
You have to be careful.Not only are there "rules" about advertising, there are Laws! Especially Tax Laws!
