I have started receiving complaints from TU members about business owners, tackle supply retailers, lure parts companies and others spending time here in the forums with a single motive; selling TU members their goods or services. This message serves as notice to everyone that this will STOP here and now! TU is not a venue for ANYONE to spend time hanging out here, trying to sell their products to people. It is a place where people come to learn from other lure makers. Any company who has people here and is actively soliciting TU members, be forewarned that your accounts are in danger of being permanently banned! I don't take this lightly and you shouldn't either! So if you happen to be one of those people who has been becoming more active here for the sole purpose of trying to reel in new customers, put an end to it now. If you want to share your knowledge with others without mentioning your company and without offering to "help" them with their problem by offering to sell them something, then feel free to continue to to participate here. I will be keeping a close eye on this and TU members will also be watching and if they see anything going on that is outside of these guidelines, it will be passed along to me. Once again, accounts of guilty parties will be permanently banned if this continues after today!
Advertisers, please read this and familiarize yourself with these guidelines! In an effort to maintain continuity in the TU community, here are the guidelines for TU advertisers. Keep in mind that these guidelines can be changed without notice and they will be enforced without prejudice! Advertisers are allowed to post occasional specials and sales, but prices cannot be listed. Once the sale is posted, no further posts can be made about that sale. ie: no posts mentioning that the sale will end in a specific number of days, the sale has been extended, etc. Advertisers are encouraged to take part in forum conversations, but not solely for the purpose of promoting their business. Any content added to forum topics should be relevant and should add to the topic of conversation, without blatantly promoting their products or services. The only exception to this is when making a post to announce a sale, discount or special. Advertisers who abuse this privilege or break the rules will be warned. If the behavior continues, the advertiser will have their account banned temporarily. When the temporary ban is lifted, if the advertiser continues to abuse the privilege, their account will be permanently banned and their advertising account will be terminated. Advertisers, keep in mind that when you become an advertiser on Tackle Underground, you are already benefiting from the exposure your banner ad gets. This alone is enough value for the price your ad costs you. Anything we allow you to do above and beyond that is a bonus and a privilege, not a right or an entitlement. If we see that this privilege is being abused, it will be removed, with no questions asked. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
