Hey All, long time lurker here.

I've recently started a new community site - the general concept is that it's a middle ground between editorial and community posts - each page is owned by someone with an interest in the topic - eg football, or The Cobblers (my team ;-) but the community at large can chat & share content too.

I'm looking for people to step up and create/run the communities for their respective clubs

I'm not going to post a link or anything like that, because I don't want to spam.

If you're interested PM me.

Sorry if i've posted this in the wrong place.

u don't want to spam, yet your first thread is advertising another website?

:flint: Well it's not really advertising, is it? I didn't even mention the name, no links, no links in my profile or sig. Nothing.

Well you have a very strange definition of advertising - You couldn't find the site unless i told you, so it's pretty bad advertising.

But hey, forums are about opinions right, so you're entitled to yours - So I apologise if you've taken offense to the post

dictionary definition:

the act or practice of calling public attention to one's product, service,need, etc., especially by paid announcements in newspapers and magazines, over radio or television, on billboards, etc.

u are calling attention to your product, u are just making us have to take the effort to find out what it is. so not only is it still advertising, despite you 'not [wanting] to spam', it's lazy advertising making us do the work. if you're gonna spam do it properly

I've not called attention to a product, there is no reference to the product at all. Think what you like, if you're not interested then whatever - don't respond, I don't think i've done anything wrong or doing any harm asking for help - so just move on, what are you adding to anything here? nothing.

i don't like spam. it's rude to appear in a community and immediately post an advert elsewhere, if u were really sincere about this you could have posted a bit more beforehand, building up a rapport so a thread advertising your site appears less self-serving. pming a mod would have worked too, but you're not sincere and your inability to understand why it's unacceptable is telling

I've used this community for many years (under it's previous name) - As i've said i'm sorry if you took offence, I have been posting in other topics. It's not for you to decide if i'm sincere or not , that is nothing but your opinion. I also disagree that it's an advert, and that's my opinion. But this conversion isn't benefiting anyone. So let's just agree to disagree and leave it at that.

Good luck at the weekend, everyone in the country is rooting for you guys :)
