When is a link an advert

Post by Michael Mkpadi » Wed Nov 25, 2015 6:47 pm

The brand new site for the Chiltern League is now live.

Visit http://www.chilternleague.org.uk/ if you dare.

This is running version 1.2 of LeagueManage from The UK Chess Organisation (me!) :)

Enjoy!
This link post was allowed in links. I recommended a link and it got moved to adverts, it's actual a free website with no ads and i posted a url.

Maybe some consistency in the moderating of this forum might help newbies like me.
Chess is a conversation. At Chess Club Live everyone can join that conversation whatever your elo rating. :D

I think I agree with you I made a mistake and will move it back.

I considered John more of a link but it's also an advert I suppose.

iPhone moderation is perhaps a mistake.

I would say that a link to a commercial site is an advert and a link to non-commercial site is just that.

Call me old fashioned perhaps?

Is this forum providing a service?

Each of the League Management sites has a link to this forum.

Are these adverts rather than links?
