Since this entire YoYoExpert forum is financially supported by YYE store sales and such; YoYoExpert feels it is not acceptable to use the Forum to advertise other sources of Retail yoyo supplies. Mentioning other Yoyo stores is strictly against board rules. People that ‘bother to read and understand’ the Forum rules already know this.
Some people for whatever reason feel it ‘ok’ for ‘them’ to slip now and then and just throw in some free advertising for another Store.
Andre and his crew have actually been pretty relaxed about enforcing their own rules; which, over time has caused some people to feel they can operate outside the board rules with impunity.
Sometimes somebody posts up talking about another store and the Mods just don’t catch it for a few days; causing others to feel that it must be ‘ok’ to talk about Billybobs because they didn’t delete the post?
… Poor thinking🤔
Television shows… Radio shows… Billboard advertisements… Etc.; all have something in common. All commercials have to be paid for. Even 10 second commercials cost money. No free rides. That is the way most Business works.
There is an old saying, ‘My party, my rules’. This is Andres’ party(forum).
You don’t have to ‘buy’ everything yoyo related from YYE. You can buy your stuff from anyplace you want.
But no matter how innocent your intentions; talking about others Stores is not allowed.
