While we have been diligent moderating for links
posted by the seller/vendor
, we have allowed what we call the 'Look What I Found' threads as long as the vendor
/seller was not directly involved in posting.
We have recently noticed that vendors
/sellers are posting more in auction threads. The increased involvement of the sellers within these threads leads to promotion of the auction by the seller, which we have never allowed.
We are requesting that sellers/vendors
do not involve themselves with threads about their auctions, other than posting a note of thanks to the bidders and/or winning bidder when the auction has ended, if they choose.
If this trend continues, we will be forced to strictly enforce Rule 8 and allow NO posting of these links
