    Can someone answer a rules question for me? I was hit with a penalty for selling off forum, when I had suggested if people wanted to hire me that we use a freelance site(or not as their choice) for everyones safety.(I am looking for a job) I understand selling products is supposed to be done thru here, but hiring to work is as well? I looked and couldnt find a good answer, probably missed it. Hate making stupid mistakes! Just want to make sure I dont mess up again.
    Thanks for any clarification.

    you have to be a donor/Jr vip and have to pay the success fee if your service thread is approved.

    You cannot sell your services here without opening a BST thread. These threads are moderated to ensure that you are providing quality services to the members here.

    You tried to bypass the rules by starting a thread about your service on odesk or whatever asking for advice. But your trying to get customers here.

    Hence you are trying to sell services outside the BST forum and you got an infraction.

    Well that explains it -- I never thought looking for a job was offering services for sale! Thanks for the clarification. Will ask the mods how to do it right.
