A number of members have expressed annoyance at the numerous ads for the sale of pelt, bone, and other items. I too feel that the number of sales ads in this group has gotten somewhat out of hand. In some galleries, the ads out number the actual taxidermy works.
What should we do about these ads?
Currently, I propose the following solutions:
We can disallow sales ads and direct them to other groups. There are already a number of groups specifically dedicated to sales with an active customer base. They include the following:
Other groups that host sales of specific items:
If we go with this option, the ads will not show up in you message box. We will affiliate these groups and direct members there if they are looking to shop. Sales ads will still be allowed in comments, just not submissions.
We can create a section in the group gallery specifically for sales. Please be aware that the sales will still show up in your messages.
Please post your thoughts. Any suggestions are welcome. If you any better ideas, please post here or note me.
