A question has come up regarding the "No Commerce Guideline" I established on this forum. It puts me enough on a post that I would like to open the question up for discussion. The "No Commerce Guideline" follows below: "2] Maintain a commerce free environment. Please do not use the LF forum to sell equipment, workshops, services, etc." With respect to this guideline, should we allow participants to post notices about non-free workshops, so long as there are no dollar amounts quoted in the thread? After only a brief announcement the new thread would point towards a webpage that would provide additional information. On the positive, it would inform participants about possibly excellent workshops that they might like to take, especially since LF educational resources will probably become less available. On the negative, it would "clutter" this forum with threads that are not related to direct questions about techique, aesthetics, etc., that people would like to ask. Plus, I've noticed that for the free workshops we permit, additional posts are generated if the workshop doesn't fill. Given the number of workshops available, one wonders about the number of additional threads that allowing these announcements would generate. Please add your thoughts as to whether or not you think we should allow announcing non-free workshops in the above fashion.
