  1. When Asking For Advice

    If you are asking for advice, include as much information and detail as you possibly can. Failure to do so may lead to removal of your thread.

  2. No Selling of Any Kind

    This is not a place to sell any of your stuff. /r/forsale is where you should post those things. This is also incorporated into our zero-tolerance abuse policy. Selling results in an immediate, permanent ban, no exceptions.

  3. No Self-Promotions

    This is not the place to promote your business. Any and every post promoting a business, in any capacity, will be removed and will result in an instant ban.

  4. No Recruiting

    This is not a place to recruit sales people. There are other subs for that. A good starting point would be this guide.

  5. No Spamming

    Spamming, or blatant self-promotion, will result in an instant ban. Keep the conversations on /r/sales appropriate. Spamming gets zero-tolerance, so be forewarned.

  6. Minimum User-Karma of 10

    Your account must have at least a minimum of 10 user-karma in order to make a post. If your post gets auto-removed, the moderators may approve it themselves after review, or you may contact them directly and request a consideration.

  7. No Affiliations With Submissions

    By posting here, you agree that you have no connections to the sites where your submissions originate.

  8. No Blogspam

    We do allow articles, but we do not allow blogspam. Any post that looks like blogspam will be removed. This will be under the moderator's discretion.
