After much discussion and deliberation, we have decided to run, as a trial, a new Forum area where members can highlight their own books, films, trailers, websites and things of genre interest. The Promotion Zone is just that: a place where new things can be examined by Members. The area still follows all the usual SFFWorld rules. This is a new area for us: and, looking at the rules, is not what we normally do at SFFWorld, up to this point. So, it is a work in progress, and one we will watch very carefully. Staff will be moving threads and posts that are placed in the usual Forum areas to this new Zone where it is felt to be more appropriate. Thank you for your understanding. Mark / Hobbit Addendum: Since we have offered up the Promotion Zone for members to post about their novels / stories / blogs etc, we expect NOT to see such advertisement posts in the main forum. Furthermore, if you post visitor messages on a Member's page or send Private Messages to members advertising your novel / stories / blog / etc., this would be considered severe abuse of our forum guidelines and the spirit behind providing this forum for Promotion. As a result, you will be banned immediately.
