I now want to see crackdowns across the board on this type of promotion.

Stox and deuces cracked have a partnership with us.

Anyone in the same field as them get no free ads.

As always, I am open to the possibility that my perspective is flawed. Crackdown, resign if that applies, or convince me I'm wrong.

As far as I and uNL are concerned I either nuke or warn against any mention whatsoever of coaching, or paid mentoring sessions. There is the occasional offer of a free sweat or minor hand history review from our more experienced members and I feel that there is nothing wrong with this, but I do not permit commercial enterprise of any kind in uNL and I make no exceptions.

These really should go. They're nothing but free ads. The 80x80 avatars aren't much smaller than the 120x60 ads on the right side.

They're different than Evan's golf avatar because the Leggo avatars compete with our paying advertisers.

Avatars are harmless. They are not clickable (like the ads), they do not mention the name directly, and there is no way to get to the site as a direct result of viewing an avatar (no url or link mentioned), and further they don't even explain at all what our site is (like ads do). Clearly paid ads are FAR superior, and we are looking in to purchasing some in the very near future. Me and Mat talked privately about removing some of the avatars as to which I agreed.

Ticker,

You are clearly biased on this issue and should not be acting as if you are not.

Agree with leader. if people want to use their avatars to promote sites then they should pay for it. I think we should just ban advertising avatars altogether rather than charge though.

Also the fact that some mods/people with access to this forum are doing it is gross. Pick a site to associate yourself with and stick with it, but you cant honestly represent each sites best interest without conflict.

So like, is this whole setup with the logo/location legal?


I have mentioned to a few other CR owners that we should probably make CR logo-avatars to use on 2p2 and they tell me, "nah, we don't need to be spamming 2p2." Is this considered "spam" in the eyes of the admins?
