Any chance of placing an Advertisement board/sub-board on the forum? I've just noticed the Off Topics board is getting a lot of threads with people advertising their own game/server/check-this-outs. Could work nicely as a sub-board of the Off Topic board.
From past dealings and just noting the setup and rules of the forum as is-- the other staff do not seem so keen as their forum being used as a means of advertising. There are the KITO forums for that.
That isn't to say this isn't an easy add-in but at current the off topic board doesnt have that much post traffic that any advertisements that are actively handled are being pushed back. I do not think cluttering with another sub board is necessary at current but I think it's more up to Rim or Rak as to what happens with this
In the Rules, advertising is allowed so long as people have to PM you for the link to whatever it is you're advertising, so if they weren't keen on being used as potential advertising space, advertising would have been banned altogether. And if they aren't keen on being overly-targeted for advertising, an ads board is a good way to redirect that flow off traffic to a place that's less right in your face/in amongst chat threads (and can also be more easily found by members should they want to see what other people are advertising about).
At the moment, there are 5 of the 17 threads on the first page only of the Off Topics board which are advertising something. There are less in the past pages, so either there's just been a random boom now, or this is only the start of more ad threads to come.
Yes I am aware of the rules, and thus why it's a possible thing. The fact that the URL has to be hidden is reason enough to believe thAt they had no intentions of an advertising board at all. But at current the off topic board is used for very little else besides these occasional servers and a few topic threads. Unless it continue to grow with more and more of these little private servers, I do not believe we'll need one. Though I consider what your saying so I'll ask the others about it when I can catch them.
