Recommending other websites and fora?
« on: November 08, 2006, 08:19:22 PM »

Hi All

Before I commit a breach rules and or etiquette is it permitted to invite LL members to visit and join other sites.

I am a member of many other fora some of which get regular mentions like outbackphoto and dpreview but I also belong to a UK based (but with some international members) group of photographers whose forum operates more like an online club with critique advice by fellow members and even competitions.  It also has a more 'public' face with a website.

I have been asked by the senior moderator to invite folk to come visit and if they like what they see registering and joining in?

So, please let me know if I can do this? I have found my membership here worthwhile and would not want to jeopardise it making a mistake about this!

TIA

Hi situgrrl

As no moderator has commented I will PM you the information.  I do not want to blot my copybook by putting the info here before I get 'permission'

Maybe this will get a moderator to react.

I have noticed frequent references to DPReview and other forums from time to time here, along with suggestions that people visit them (of course, some such posts can be interpreted as an invitation to a certain poster to go away.)

It sounds to me as if you are not pushing a commercial product, so it seems reasonable (to me at least) to let your post stand here.

I would certainly be interested in at least visiting your site.

That's my unofficial take on the rules of this forum.

Thanks for asking and I will defer to Michael, but I can see absolutely no problem at all
