The Commercial Information Board

To complement our existing Bazaar boards, which are primarily directed at private users, we have decided to introduce a "Commercial Board".

The purpose of this board is to allow commercial miniature companies to post general news on their companies. This would include the following:

The opening of a new or revamped online store
Special offers and other events

NOTE THAT THIS DOES NOT INCLUDE SPECIFIC PRODUCT NEWS. If your company is about to release a new product or if you wish to showcase work-in-progress items, please feel free to use the appropriate period board as it will more easily reach your target audience there. For multi-period items, use the board which is most appropriate; for tools, paints etc., best use the Workbench.

In any case, it adds to clarity if you add the [COMMERCIAL] tag to your topic header to signify to readers that you have a vested interest. If you are promoting a crowdfunding project, please use an appropriate tag, e.g. [KICKSTARTER], [INDIEGOGO] etc. in place of the [COMMERCIAL] tag.

To further clarify, if posting a period-specific topic on a board, you are NOT obliged to use the tag if the topic title is sufficiently clearly-worded, but it is only polite to make your intention clear to readers just to avoid any discord about "sock-puppeting". 

In addition to companies' publishing news and announcements, regular forum users may use the Commercial board to give public feedback on their customer experience, or to point out issues with websites or e-mail contacts. Specific product reviews should be posted in the appropriate period board, whereas general praise or (preferably constructive) criticism of a company's products and services may be posted on the Commercial board itself.

If you are in doubt where you should place a news item or require other info, feel free to contact the Bazaar Moderator (Westfalia Chris) for further information and guidance.

In accordance with the Bazaar Board Rules (http://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=46530.0), all Commercial News topics posted on the Commercial Board must feature a [COMMERCIAL] tag in the topic line to help users identify it in the "Show Recent Posts" functionality.

Please note that requests for information, or feedback on a company's services do not require the [COMMERCIAL] tag. If you wish it to stand out, you can add a tag describing your topic's intent, or simply rely on a clearly-worded topic title.
