OS Grid Donation Drive Events & Scheduling - Sept 21-28, 2018

OS Grid Donation Drive Events & Scheduling - Sept 21-28, 2018 OS Grid Fundraiser Carnival 2018 __________________________________________________________________ Greetings everyone, OS Grid which has given us all so much, reaches out and asks us all for a bit of help in return during our Annual Carnival Fundraiser Donation Drive. The Open Source Grid charges no money for content, entertainment or even land, but not all is free to the grid itself. Servers to host all of this must be paid for along with a few miscellaneous expenses needed to keep us afloat, therefor we rely on the generosity of our residents and guests.

This person Cata is known spammer in osg. I had to unfriend her because when she has events she post it in group chat on 10 groups, send notices on same 10 groups, blast IM to her friend list and in openchat she types all caps. 20 invites for the one place no thanks. I wish admin would combat spam.

This is a discussion forum -- please don't use for advertising events or promotions that are clearly not appropriate discussions here. You have the events listing and your region listing page to post and advertise with.

In other discussions you complain about spam yet all you seem to be doing is spamming your complaints where they don't belong just inform an admin if your so concerned. No need to make drama which seemed to be your goal with your complaint.

those postings you refer to are not discussions but rather self promotion.
There are ways of promoting events and news and this is (my opinion) not the place.
Since you seem to think this discussion forum is for events and region/grid self promotion maybe you could reply to the post I created about this issue?
Would love to see a rational thoughtful point of view regards not posting discussions but rather using a "discussion form" for posting events and region/grid news?

BBQ Bernice, going after fund-raisers gives new meaning to the word deplorable.

you talk about grief but sure are good at dishing it out ...
You have an opportunity here in this "Discussion" to put forward good reasons why posting events and self promotion of regions/grids is acceptable in this "discussion forum" even tho these kinds of postings are not "discussions".
I wish osgrid and cataplexia and you too the best of success however dont spam discussion forums with non-discussions. Now imagine everyone posts their event, special news here? What happenns is that legitimate discussion posts get buried under all the spam right? How nice is that? How fair to subvert a given purpose to self interest?
Look at the threads ... My beacon is not working help, my landing point is wrong help, any scripts available for hunts, help, etc. That is what this forum is about.
Since it appears you can not form any reason or rationale you attack me personally, call me names hahahahaha.
Thats very sad

You have the opportunity here with the message board to practice what you preach. I really look forward to reading all the many positive and helpful discussions you start and add to.

I don't see anyone posting to any of these threads justification for using the discussion forum for posting events and self promotions .. not you or swag who seem rather passionate about this. Seems you both can only attack me personally trying to distract from not having any good rational or reasons of your own for posting events and self promotion in this discussion forum. You can see others who agree with me.
However I will proffer this idea ... Opensimworlds used to have a "news" section that was perfect for what you want to do and it was used extensively for self promotion and event posting or any other kinds of region news.
I would be happy to join with you and others to petition the admins of opensimworlds to bring it back. Why it was disposed of I have no idea. We can gather support to bring it back and in so doing leave the discussion forum to its intended purpose.
What say CocoDo?

Maybe you should leave the rule enforcing to the admins of this site which you are clearly not. If they had any issue with this post then they would have removed it. If you think this post breaks any rules of this site then inform an admin.

thank you for using this "discussion forum" for what it is designed for
I am not complaining but rather is education for those who don't seem to understand that this is a "discussion" forum not a "news and event" posting arena. Hopefully they will use the tools of promotion opensimworlds provide and use this "discussion" forum for discussions right?
Those with events can use the event posting provided on the region listing, can promote their region using "gold coins" or use their region listing itself.
Imagine if everyone uses this "discussion" form for listing every event, news item for their region/grid as self promotion.
This rather defeats the intended use of posting questions about openimworlds, opensim use, region issues such as tech where they are looking for answers from the community.
maybe you would like to read the opensimworlds tos -- they do not police so no i agree with you no rules broken however posting events and region/grid news in this forum is (in my opinion) not appropriate and being a discussion forum this is the place to say so.
Rather than admins spending time policing I would like them to bring back the "news" section and continue working on making opensimworlds the go to site for finding regions, events where people are, most popular, most liked, and newest region listings Kudos to the admins for keeping it working so fantastically for everyone. That seems time well spentl rather than spending their time as you suggest.
