    Concerning Freebies and Giveaways, please read!

    Hey,

    a community member has recently brought my attention to this, there are alot of threads in the Freebies section of our Marketplace that require users to give the thread creator and in order to participate.

    That is against the rules. (http://i.imgur.com/riZIt.png)



    I haven't paid too much attention to that, frankly. That's why all threads created prior to today, the 19th of September 2012, can suck my dick, really. Erm, I mean, will not be punished as no one really noticed and/or cared.

    Please do follow this rule as I will not hesitate to punish it gravely. (in fact, it IS a rep system abuse.)

    All the best,
    Jizzeldy Jolinar.

    That's me
    Thanks, I hope that from now on, people use this section for giveaway things, not for ask or for the purpose of accumulating rep points in an illegal manner.

    You're right, that's not the point of the freebies section, is it.
    For free means for free.

    Being required to give rep for freebies is like taking a survey to download from a YouTube video.

    I did not know this, i admit i gave Rep and Thanks to people in some of those threads. If i had known it was against the rules i would not have. Fortunately, i did not make any of these threads myself or exploit Rep or Thanks. So thank you for bringing this to my attention and my apologies for giving those people free Rep and Thanks.

    Well a rule is a rule we have to reinforce it or else. Guess we'll have to keep reminding the people who start the freebie thread with
    / rule.

    I can talk for me, i'll continue to do the giveaways as i always have do, without asking anything for exchange

    If someone want to make a new giveaway need to follow the rules and do it for free without make a mandatory rule like and , too easy make rep point in this way...
    If someone want to thanks or rep a thread/post must be a choice, not an imposition

    I'm a genius! I usually thanked them, participated in the giveaway and removed the thanks again! BAM!
