    I don't think anyone on this thread actually reads what I say. I said "Makes sense. Not" That's sarcasm. And i'm not complaining. It's called being a man and saying the truth. And not trying to act right to impress the girl in this thread.

    We don't ban people for most violations of the rules, only for egregious and repeated violations, such as posting pornography on the forums. If Gary Wilson came onto the forums and started promoting his site through his signature, we would kindly ask him to remove the link to YBOP from his signature, as we did for you. Experience tells us that self-promotion generally detracts from user experience. Thousands of users find YBOP helpful, as do we. We frequently link to his site, as do many users on the forums. If they are sharing it of their own accord, a resource that they have found helpful, that is fine. But self-promotion introduces an element of self-interest into sharing external resources. When that happens, it can easily become not so much about helping others, but using the forum to build a personal platform, or sell some product or service. I am not accusing you of doing this, but I hope you can see why we do not allow advertising and self-promotion to keep these kinds of posts off the forum. People who are only on a forum for their own self-interest will probably not be as interested in helping others and contributing to the community.

    We are happy to give our policies regarding this further consideration. That is why we keep this feedback section open! We always welcome feedback from Fapstronauts like you. This particular policy about advertising and self-promotion however, has served the community well. It has help us keep the forum organized, ordered and on topic, eliminating content that detracted from the inclusive rebooting experience the NoFap forums offer.

    In the future I would suggest reaching out to us about sharing some of your content before linking to that content of your own accord.

    It is against NoFap rules to advertise regardless of who you are, please respect this and remove the link from you signature. There are many other ways to advertise these different sites and youtube videos without using NoFap as the medium. Thank you.

    We do our best to keep it that way. Sometimes things leak through the cracks, but usually not for long. Thank you for the positive feedback.

    I did remove it and added a site that was not my own. What are some other ways by the way?

    It doesn't make much sense for other people to post YBOP links but Gary can't just because it's his own... No logic behind that. But rules are rules. I'm not asking them to be changed but for the rules to be more closely examined, as it could help people more.

    I am not sure what those other ways are due to me not being in advertising. I am sure a google search on how to setup advertising would help. Otherwise, I wouldn't even know myself.

    The link in your signature violates the NoFap rules that are in place. These rules can be examined more closely and I doubt that they will change or could in fact become stricter than what they are now. I don't know this for sure, that is just a guess and I do try not to just guess. Whenever someone links to other sites those are usually checked to make sure that advertising isn't happening. @matthewmammothrept would probably have more experience with this sort of thing. Regardless of what I think and what you said, the rules are in place for a reason and I believe that the link you have in your signature violates that rule. I am afraid that if it isn't removed, then further action would need to be taken by moderators. I would rather not have to do that. It is ultimately up to you how you want to proceed.

    Thank you for your time and patience.

    Disagree.

    When I want to help others I use resources and strategies that I perfectly know. If I would be offering a method to solve a problem, I'd ask to people to try it at all and I'd avoid methods which I don't know.

    @Evan K What if you are the interested one to have traffic and money carrying people from this site to yours?

    I thought I already resolved this with the other mods. I originally had a link to my own site, now i'm linking to reddit and I thought they were cool with that. The rules say no self promotion. I don't own reddit.

    It's fine to make money doing what you love, but it's not cool when you take away resources to help people over money. I'm not taking away resources, only supplying them so you disagreeing means nothing,

    Putting a link to your site in your signature is just exploiting this site for free advertising, regardless if it's a link to good or bad.

    These are the rules of advertising.
    It's not a personal thing.

    OK I can't lurk any longer on this one - gotta call this nonsense out. I commend the moderators for so patiently explaining the rules of the forum to you. You broke the rules, you have to deal with the consequences - end of story! For now, the rules don't allow self-advertising, and if you choose to post on this site, you have to abide by them. It is clear you understand this. It is also clear you continue to reply to this thread to PLAY DUMB, go in circles, and attempt to raise drama to further self advertise your new signature link! This issue is black and white. Everybody knows you understand the rules, so follow them and knock it off, dude. You are making yourself look like a huge jerk. For real. It is clear to anybody with a brain that you are trying self advertise and are only here to advertise a site, but this is not the way to do it. You have already branded yourself poorly by the terrible arguments you are posting here and I am embarrassed for you. Please stop. For your own sake. Also, I checked out your signature link to your post on Reddit and found that it was BANNED FROM REDDIT AND PORNFREE for the same reason - self advertising!!!

    So you got asked by a mod to stop advertising your site, you change it to a reddit post that you made where you are still advertising your site and claim it isn't advertising because reddit isn't your website, but then your post got removed by PORNFREE reddit site for advertising too and even your whole Reddit account is banned for advertising. Others cant even see your post that you linked to on Reddit (attempting to get around non advertising rules here) because it was removed for advertising by another site --- LOL! This isn't the way to gain an audience for your site, buddy. The mods and other people on here couldn't be any more clear or kind in explaining this to you but you continued to make posts that don't make any sense. And the only way to help people is to advertise your website? That's totally nonsense! If you want to be a community member you should have been a community member, but it's clear that you only care about advertising your own website on every community (here, Reddit, PORNFREE) that you seem to join. Stop making yourself look bad and knock it off. Everyone will thank you to do so.

    Another fun thing about this is that the NoFap mod @ILoathePorn who responded to this thread links to other sites like yourbrainonporn that aren't affiliated with NoFap in his signature, which is totally different from self advertising.

    brb going to go onto your website and spam my fitness blog and personal training service everywhere in your blog's comments area. Because that would be totally cool right, you wouldn't remove my comments or restrict them or ask me to not link to my website at the bottom of every comment on your site, since I'm only trying to help people???? And removing my advertising posts from your site would be immoral and make you a money grubbing industry monopolizing person that doesn't care about helping people.

    ps I do have a fitness blog but don't advertise it here because I wanna remain anonymous but also because it is basic common sense/courtesy to not go onto a forum just to advertise external websites.

    Let's see how much your website is making. Oh zero. Looks like another failed entrepreneur who couldn't make money himself so hates on others that make money.

    Pepper M doesn't hate on you.
    And I don't think you are being very helpful to Pepper M saying things like what you said above, in fact it's very hurtful to say what you have said.

    I'm on other forums and one of them IS spammed to hell at times. And it annoys me because it's spam about stuff that is not even related to the forum topics. For example, someone wrote about solar power and while I am in FAVOUR of that, I don't appreciate seeing it on a forum about hypnosis etc. It's not relevant.

    And I feel like your site would be more relevant advertised elsewhere. There ARE places where it would be welcomed with open arms. There ARE places on the net where people are crying out for productivity links and I strongly suggest you advertise there. I'm sure it's a great site.

    But, I can understand what the others are saying, we don't want advertising to take away from the purpose of this site, which is to help us with our addiction. I also think that it's a LOT of work to make and run a site and grow it, a LOT of work, mind-boggling amount. And I wouldn't want anything to detract from that, or from the sense of community that is offered here.

    You wouldn't want Pepper M to advertise on your site.

    And, for someone who claims to be wanting to HELP others, I find your comments to Pepper M the opposite of that, in fact I find them incredibly mean. I thought that while entrepreneurs want to make money, there was also some element of HELPING others, not trying to knock them down like you did with Pepper M.
    This alone puts me right off wanting to check out your site.
