Goes in Ads Chat:
Any advertisement for buying, selling, trading, clubs, contests, scavenger hunts (the advertising part,) paying for quest help or any type of ad where a player will pay for something.
Exception: In front of Earton Bank or at the crossroads, if players congregate to buy and sell horses, they may use chat here for advertising, players can mute chat here or move on if they don't wish to see it. Also, at Auction, players may use chat here.
Does not need to be in ads chat unless they wish to post it more often than every 5 minutes. May be in ads, but doesn't have to be:
Asking for buddies, quest help, chatting - unless the topic is not appropriate for this game, or it's totally flooding the server and others are complaining. I usually give them about 5 minutes to flood then ask them to take it to Chat Here, Buddy or PM. If the chatting is only interesting to a few players then they need to move it out of global as well. Chatting is fine, as long as the topic is family friendly, mods can become involved in the chat if they wish, or they may stay out of it.
I'm sure I have left out quite a few things, I've only had 1 cup of coffee... so please post any questions you have! :) *laughing out loud!*
When players are looking for quest help or asking to be shown where something is and offer to pay, I respond: When you offer to pay, it becomes an ad, and belongs In Ads Chat please.
It reminds players to 1) use Ads Chat, and 2) think about what they're saying. Because it's super annoying to be muted when you're trying to get quest help or make a trade. *laughing out loud!*
As always, Thanks for letting me help = )
If they are paying for others to enter the competition then it needs to be in ads chat.
