Advertising outside of the For Sale forum

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I checked the "read first" threads in the "For Sale" forum, but I didn't find an answer to this (unless I missed it).

Is it OK to advertise an item on sale in the "For Sale" forum, in other threads in other forums, specific to the device that's on sale? E.g., if I'm selling DAC "X" in the "Source Components for Sale" forum, may I advertise it in the "DAC X appreciation thread" in the "Dedicated Source Components" forum? I assume not, but I figured I'd ask anyway.

Another question: I'm advertising my item in my signature; is that OK?

Advertising in the signature is fine/common practice.
There's no rule against advertising in threads, but usually it's frowned upon unless it's somehow part of the flow of the thread or very thread specific. 

Like if you've been participating in a thread for a while and then say you've got the thing you're talking about for sale, nobody usually minds that.

But if you just join a thread out of nowhere like "hey guys, buy my stuff!" people don't really like that because it encourages others to do it which pointlessly floods the threads with ads.
