There has been some trouble lately with the understanding of rule #4, the selling rule, on the info page. We have re-worded this rule so that it should now be quite clear.
---*---*---*---*---*---*---*---4. All sales and store advertisements must be placed under a cut. Internet store sales and direct sales may be posted once. Online auctions may be posted twice, once near the beginning of the auction, and once near the end. Additional advertisements are subject to mod approval. Updates for online stores, selling journals, and commissioners should be kept to a minimum. Please keep these updates to no more than twice a month.
All text and images of a sales post must be under a lj cut
. This includes all
images images and all
(White puff-sleeve Angelic Pretty cut-sew for direct sale.)

If you are an online seller and you have something really cool that you've made that you just want to share, these rules do not apply. Certainly you can show off something cool that you have made. If you are a seller, you are still a member of the community and a regular person who might want to share something nifty from time to time. However, do not abuse this. Do not use a "just sharing an accomplishment" post to cleverly disguise shop announcements or online sales.
I want everyone to understand that this rule isn't just because we're trying to be picky or anything like that. This is a large and extremely active community, and there are many members who don't want there to be sales posts at all. In efforts to keep the peace, we have come up with these standards for sales posts.
Please note that we will *not* be giving warnings anymore for sales posts in violation of the rule. We will leave a comment explaining the reason for the deletion, but there will be no warning and waiting for the post to be fixed.
Does anyone have any questions or does anything seem unclear? Feedback is welcome on this, good or bad. We want to make this community a great place for everyone, and to do that, we need your input.
