Oh certainly. I mean, we do endorse the things we like here all the time.

But . . . what if Hair Merchant X started supplying someone here with free hairs, on the understanding that they would showcase them? Would that be ethical? Would it be if you just wore them, and included the style's details in the post without an outright endorsement?

Not sure, to be honest, but it's a pretty fine line.

Its already being done, a lot of bloggers on Flickr, are "official" bloggers for certain brands and get a free sample of products to blog them. There's also posts on the forums that link directly to blogs. I don't mind at all, if the pictures are good, I find tons of lovely new stuff by following blog Flickr accounts. The vanity topic on the forums is ment for showcasing items you wear and naming them (last part is forgotten a lot of the times).

I would never wear something I didn't like just to promote it. My style is my style and that's not negotiable whatever the perks!!!

Oh and being at the behest of some store owner isn't my idea of fun either so I'll just carry on  floating around snapping up shiny things!!!

My best finds so far have been Lutz (where I just dropped on the link and then explored it properly)...... and now OX. And that's all down to a dance at the Lesbian Sisterhood sim!!!! But that Hawk outfit is one of the best I've ever seen. It looks good,  like Wonderwoman, and makes me feel great wearing it......

Just a reminder that my store of choice is Blueberry........ :) Oh and Essenz...

And I've paid for it all haha! But don't tell (RL) management or I'll be in trouble.

I think that this is the principle that many YouTube reviewers abide by. They don't hide the fact that they've been sent stuff to review for free, but they also don't hesitate to trash it if it deserves trashing. Presumably that means that only companies that are reasonably confident about the value of their wares send stuff -- no point in giving something away for free if it's only going to result in a blisteringly bad review.

I've been watching some game reviewers. One I especially like is Jim Sterling. Game companies have mostly blacklisted him from getting pre-release copies of games because he reviews them honestly. AAA game companies are using strong arm tactics to freeze out 'bad' reviews by a slew of sleazy practices. DMCA of 'bad' reviews and outright buying 'good' reviews that contain their PR Departments 'talking points' among those practices. That includes a lot of YouTube reviewers for games. I like Sterling, because he's also not a gamergate type manbaby.

We need one. And it should probably look like one of Maddy's [unused] slippers.

FIFY 😃
