Private messages can certainly help in this. Don't be shy guys, I am not going to eat you,( although Grr might, he is a lion)
I agree with you ash. Not many are comfortable posting at chatbox and that's why I suggested to have an exclusive thread to get permissions. That way, it'd be easier for mods to moderate and also members will know where to go to get permission for a giveaway....
When nothing goes right, go left. :becky:

Practically its not possible Sam. The reason--- if someone asks for permission in a thread, the URl is already public and not under MOds queue unless some mod looks at it which sometime may be even a day or more.
Do not PM me for help. Just open a thread at the forum or use the search function.

why not activate thread moderation for that sub forum?

Oh! If it's impossible then its ok. What arn said is also good. I think there should be an easy way to communicate with mods... Some ways, we can use forms, threads (moderated as arn said) etc...

Thread moderation is a option we could go for...

if guess it would be easier rather than going through chats

Don't think that's the only reason to disallow those. The most important can be "bored and disgusted" :pound:.

Grr Wrote:I voted Yes.

Q: how have we benefited from not allowing posting the limited giveaways?

@Arnab- true, but the % of THOSE bloggers won't be more than 10%.

@ALL - if we ALLOW, pls consider the following points:

1. Identify prepare a list of all those forums/blogs/sites/vendors-which are allowed here to post either their own giveaways or someone else posting
2. Make separate sub-forums for EACH direct site giveaway such as tipradar, facebook, twitter, WinX direct, blog giveaways, special 7/10/30 days events...this would help US better organize+Moderate

In the end we Do Not want to have spammers here, but not every member who had (or will) post a limited giveaway is a spammer.

Yours Sincerely,
Lion

--Very nice there! I second that! and I vote "yes" also --but do consider Grr's suggestion(just me!)

My vote is No.

Primarily, it's because the forum currently has a very high quality of giveaway posts.

Secondly, I'm not really against it per se... but there will be difficulties. You only need to take a look at the Freebies sections on Raymond.cc to get an idea of the headaches involved for the moderators.

I will say that opening it up will probably result in much more traffic. It's a question of how you set things up and how motivated the moderators are to undertake the extra work.
