We welcome the posting of commercial messages in this area, however our members have decided that in order to post something here, you must also have contributed to other parts of this forum.
Contributing means sticking around and replying to a few messages, or starting your own topic. We have many different subjects under discussion, therefore it should not be difficult for you to find something that interests you.
Once you have posted 10 messages
, and 7 days have elapsed
since you joined, you will automatically be given the ability to post in this area. Your ability to post in other areas will not be restricted, you can post anywhere else as soon as you have completed your registration. Please do not post other people's messages for them
. If you have earned the right to post here, you should post messages which either promote your own business, or a business with which you have a very close connection.
Any advertisement posted here should be relevant to the expat community
. This means it provides a service that expats are often looking for, and almost always provides information in English. A business which provides a generic service which can be obtained anywhere (e.g. services on the internet) does not fall into this category. If in doubt - ask first.
If it becomes obvious that you are posting worthless messages simply to be able to post in this area, or if you post commercials in other areas, your messages will be deleted and forum moderators reserve the right to exclude you from further use of this system.
In addition, other forum members may use the reputation system to lower your reputation if you are seen posting advertisements without contributing to any of the other discussions.
So in summary - we'd love to help support our active community members by having them post adverisements for their businesses, we hope you understand our position.
Please also read the guidelines regarding how to write your advertisements which can be found here: Promotion/advertising with this forum - guidelines and info
