Mary Ellen Woods (maryellen_woods) | 163 comments I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but.... Could one of the mods explain the reason for the ban? Were we having issues with this?

I understand discouraging spam, book whacking and so on but when a link is appropriate to the discussion why would it be banned?

We haven't had a problem yet but we just decided that it would be better for everyone if we said no links!

What Lady E said ^_~

Spam will become (more of) an issue as the group grows. I've already had tricksy people contact the "umbrella" account. And yes, we also have a problem with bookwhacking/author site-whacking/etc. sooo instead of having to always be a dick and ask, "Please, would you mind deleting that," we're just making it easy peasy.

No confusion FTW haha!

Wow. I'm crap at explaining shizz LOL

What I meant was that while links *might* be appropriate, mods can't always check them immediately (and I don't want us to have to anyway) so yeah, no links. Hope that makes some sense. Yo, Lady E...

How's my English tonight? XP

Jane Blythe If you have a resource or article or something you think would be helpful for people then you can still tell us about it and where you found it so other people can go and look it up

This is bordering on negative Miss Mary! I'm thinking we need to close this thread.

Mary Ellen Woods (maryellen_woods) | 163 comments Sorry...I was kidding, honestly! I deleted what might be considered negative. Close it.

It's okay Miss Mary but I am going to archive it now that the question has been answered!
