Amy you are basically correct. Any link to a freebie which is also a link to Commercial items designed for that freebie is considered a Commercial post. This happens most frequently with limited time freebies, as they are in themselves only really promo’s for the commercial items.Demo’s are treated in the same way, and also freebies which depend on a Commercial item to work. Freebies that are add-ons for a Commercial character don’t fall into this category.
We do not demonise certain sites, all sites which fall within this criteria will have links removed.
There are 2 or 3 threads around about Dawn, one in the Commons, one in the Poser forum and she had already been mentioned in this thread as well, so another thread dedicated to her was getting to be an overkill.
11.) Multiple posts for a single product or topic will be consolidated to a single post or the duplicate post may be locked or removed in order to reduce entries in the forum.
No Daz3d has not been demonizing any site, I think it falls more to the some sites do not have a webpage with a freebie on it that is not also a store page for other $ products. And this is getting to be quite a common practice as many sites either never have, or now no longer permit links to other commercial websites either. And some won’t even mention the name of this site. They are not demonizing Daz3d either.
And I’m patiently waiting for all the kiddies to stop fighting and play nice together again. I realize a certain location may well freeze over first, but hay!
In the meantime as to the concern that there be too many posts made in the forum ... well, if they’d return the option for us to delete what we have posted, we could take care of that big problem for them. However it being that they are also advertizing their forums as a place to come and get assistance, it’s rather mind boggling that they shouldn’t want a good number of posts in here. There are people wondering ‘why’ we don’t have more posts ... but soon enough people figure it out ... and sure more are using the PM system but that’s hardly helpful to the masses.
