one of the WHT rules says: Participants may not publish or discuss any information regarding their product or services, or future (possible) products or services, or any product or services they are, or have been, associated with. This includes, but not limited to suggesting your own services, or services of partners, clients, employers or friends. The Advertising Forums are for advertising.
But at the same time threads like Anybody know of any good web site design companies or is anyone interested in... are perfectly allowed and people do post links to design companies which in fact they are sometimes associated with! I was given 10 warning points for mentioning my own websites. But it wasn't my intention to promote my services, but it was just a link to a place where he can find some very nice designers at an affordable price. Besides I thought that if it is allowed to request this kind of information, it should be allowed to provide this information as well. In my opinion you should either remove threads like this or make some amendments to the rules. It's not that I want to find a way to advertise my website on WTH, but that I really find this situation unfair. Thank you.
It is quite simple "The Advertising Forums are for advertising". The main forums aren't. You can recommend a design company you have used, but you can't recommend your own company or associated companies.
