    I created post with 3 Udemy courses that were free FOR A LIMITED NUMBER OF 3 DAYS. Now I have received a "spammed advertisements" warning because they are no longer free.

    THIS IS HOW UDEMY SALES OPERATE!

    I posted them for the good of the community, and despite pleading my case they clearly were free when I posted them, I was told "they weren't free when we checked them." The post had 11 thanks so obviously they were free at the time. Lesson learned. I will not be posting any more course deals.

    Please delete this post of mine as in 15 hours they will no longer be free either:

    The onus is on you to report threads you create for Udemy where the coupons run out.

    Paid Udemy courses are on the DNS list.

    Obviously you need to mention when they sale ends or delete the thread on your own once there's no more deal. Otherwise the posts you spam are just going to be left as advertisements for paid courses forever, misleading anyone who sees the title.

    If you want a post or thread edited or deleted please use the report button.

    If you post something that has a life shelf as to being a freebie it is on you to report it.

    Plot twist: People that sell on Udemy often do the free deal for X days, post that in a ton of places and when it goes to paid they get traffic to their paid course. We get that often here so please be responsible with your shares and when they are no longer free use the report button so the staff can clean things up.
