Clampdown on Use of External Site Promotion


Recommended Posts

Good morning all!

Just a quick message to say that we have seen a rise in cases recently of members using this forum as an excuse to promote their own ventures, businesses, websites, and blogs. Punters Lounge has never been about pushing promotional material onto its members and it's reached a stage now where we feel action needs to be taken.

It has been decided that from now on the use of promoting external sites (mainstream ones such as BBC, Sky Sports, and bookmakers such as Bet365, Betfair, Betfred etc are exempt obviously!) either in a username, avatar, or posts will no longer be tolerated.

We accept that a number of members contribute positively to this forum and are involved in their own projects so we will still allow members to have a single link with a single line of promotional blurb maximum in their signature. That way, any members that do wish to find out more about that member can click on the link but it's not something that is rammed down their throats.

The Punters Lounge staff team will spend the next few weeks looking to address this issue by contacting those we feel need to make changes to their usernames, avatars, or posts. We encourage you to save us time and hassle by either changing these yourself if you feel you are one of those individuals or giving one of us a PM if you spot a member that you feel needs to change these details. Any members that fail to make the necessary changes or continue to flaunt these new guidelines will be warned and, if required, be banned.

Punters Lounge remains a place where we encourage discussion and laughs about the various sports and topics at hand. We hope that by clamping down on promotional material that can come across as spam posting we will generate a more positive, welcoming, and enjoyable forum experience for all that post here.

Thank you! :ok
