No this how you keep a forum from turning into a copy of that notorious imageboard ;)

It's important to know when the competition is doing better at something. As I point out occasionally, SL isn't that bad technically. Most of the big technical problems turn out to be accumulated bugs, once you pry open the lid and look inside at the machinery.

Head in the sand is not good for Linden Labs.

 

i have seen a lot of company driven forums where discussion about others in the market isn't allowed. It's nothing strange.

I wish hijacking dead threads wasn't allowed ... 

Would be lovely, if threads that hadn't had a response in a month would simply close themself.

let's create a forum for 'dead threads'.  At the end of a month (or two) we clean the thread.

I've got a better idea. Let's create a forum for naming and shaming necro-posters ;)

Hi there ... i have been doing forums for over a year now and have done them the same way since i started .. as they are properties for sale and for rent i post them in both sale and rent mainlands .... however i got a suspension on my account for a day .. i was asked to do a support ticket  and asked if they could explain what it was that i did wrong.. I got no reply just ticket resolved .... so i thought maybe i did it under 24hrs between them and that was the reason ... so instead of listing all properties separate i put them all on the same listing ... again listed in both sale and rent and now got a 3 day ban from SL  if i was told the first time what i did wrong i would not have made the same mistake and like i said previous i have done them in the same way for almost   on a daily basis ... so why now is a issue i really dont know ... So as i am not getting anywhere with  support and still not knowing what it is i have done wrong ... i would appreciate it if anyone could explain it to me 

Many Thanks

I just looked at your ad on skybox for rent mainland and I can't see anything wrong with it.  The only thing it might be (in my opinion and just a guess)  is putting the same parcel in 2 categories could be considered spamming if someone reported it.

I think someone went through on a reporting spree against estate agents.

One reason I like being able to set my own feed and not see land category forums :)

But to be locked out of SL for it in my opinion is wrong and by the time they even look at your support ticket your back up and running ... this is so unfair  and why they cant explain to you were it is or what it is your spamming how are we to know .. sighs ....

The email that you received should have given some sort of reason in there somewhere - though it might just be a broad category type statement (like 'violation of spamming policy').  Typically that is the best you get from LL and you just have to guess on the details.  

I truly don't understand why they can't add some sort of specific comments to their canned emails when they send them out.  It is one of many frustrating things about LL communications.

I don't think you'll ever get a specific answer.  I think a lot of times it depends on the Mods and if the posts get reported.  A while back I got a forum warning for posting the same things that I've always posted.  My guess is that someone decided to be a PITA and report my post for some reason and the Mod decided to be nit picky on it.  

Given all of that, I'd recommend that you open a Support ticket to ask for feedback on your normal posting style.  Do not reference the ban.  Simply say that you would like to ensure that you are not in violation of the posting guidelines, thus you would like to know if doing blah-blah is acceptable and if not, how would they recommend that you proceed in order to accomplish what you are wanting to do.

Unless there is something that we are not being told, it's very disheartening that a Linden would still do that after all the discussion we had here. I'd hoped that we'd seen the last of it.
