Exactly how are you going to handle original posts for all offers or deals from one place?
An example is redbox offers.
I am going to assume you want all the offers in one post rather than in individual posts.
I would guess this would also apply across the board.
An example is the post "current free magazine subscriptions"
I would guess it is also treated the same as “all redbox codes” and all magazine offers would go there.
Another example is Zapals
They offer a new free item every few days.
I would also guess that you would want all of them posted in the single “Current Zapals offers” rather than individually every 2 days
@Tuskers As I’ve already communicated to you through chat, the moderators and admin are going to discuss this and formulate an official policy. No decisions or statements will be made before then. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
My apologies for the delayed public reply to this question.
Members are welcome to group multiple related deals in a single thread (e.g., ebooks, magazines, stickers, etc.). It is, in fact, appreciated because doing so does help to keep a forum uncluttered, especially when individual items are not particularly strong enough to warrant their own threads (e.g., self published ebooks by unknown authors, newly published, with few reviews and/or poor reviews). You may choose to post a new grouped-deal thread daily, weekly, or monthly, etc., or to just post replies to a single grouped-deal thread indefinitely whenever a new related deal is available.
However, PWF will not require other members to post their related deal in a combined/grouped-deal thread. They may certainly do so if they choose, but they are also free to choose to post their deal in their own separate OP/new thread… or to create their own grouped-deal thread on the same topic (as long as it is not a repost: the moderators will help them to remove any duplicate links).
As previously posted, PWF will create a master thread in which all self-published free ebooks will be required to be posted if the Free Stuff forum ever becomes flooded with individual threads for poor quality vanity ebooks. Should that occur, we will still continue to allow mainstream ebooks to be posted in individual threads (mainstream meaning books written by well known/established authors and/or that have well known publishers).
On a related note, please be aware that at PWF, “Official” threads need to be approved by the site and, due to several issues, we’ve placed an indefinite hold on the creation of any new official threads. We are aware that that’s a bit different than how things were done at FW, however, we need to do what is best for this site. As mentioned previously, members are free to create threads that group like deals, and the OP and members are free to add new information/deals to such threads on an on going basis (but are not required to do so). So, such threads will essentially function the exact same way… just without the “Official” label. Feel free to use the words “Master Thread” in the title for such threads (although this is not required). Any unauthorized use of the word “Official” will be deleted from the thread title/OP by the @Global-Moderators. Existing “Official” threads are exempt/grandfathered in, and related deals are required to be posted in authorized “Official” threads (except in the rare cases where their value is so unusually high or the terms so unique it warrants its own thread).
Thank you so much for your patience in waiting for a reply… and thanks to everyone for your understanding and cooperation.
