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.
