    So I have a website in development and was advised this is a great place to go and post a contest for a logo, so with hope I join, try to post but cant because you need to be here for 48hrs and need 3 likes!!! What on earth does this prove? So yesterday I post requesting people to like my post so I can actually get on with the task in hand, since it is time critical but then I get a warning for doing so?

    Mods - your stupid! Seriously, lighten up, go ahead and ban me if its such a crime to come and actually give your site some purpose! Anyway, off to elance I shall trundle!

    peace out

    The beauty of our modern world is there is a place for everyone. If you don't like the rules in one country/website/etc there is another one waiting for you to check it out. Celebrate freedom of choice!

    This is just to make sure that no spammers stay on the website,
    I agree I was annoyed at it in the beginning too.

    But now I use to almost daily, Other Members are very helpful and no BS suggestions for the links and SEO crap.
    Good Forum if you are in it for good advise.

    Love it, thanks for reinforcing my point 'staff'! I observed how the discouraging 'staff' member response gained a few kiss ass likes, yet the encouraging non staff member response didn't get any.

    Anyway, cheers Manish for the insight, nice to know others have found similar issues but more importantly I agree there is some great content on the site worthy of reading, some not so but I won't go any further into that.

    Hopefully some time this year I'll be able to post an advert for a logo! Lets hope I get those 3 likes soon!

    Oooooo lets hope I'm not spamming somehow! Haha crazy!!!!

    Cheers

    I wasn't meant to be discouraging. I was acknowledging the OP's concerns while not getting upset at being called stupid. If the OP wants to womble over to elance we can't stop that from happening. The rules here have evolved over time in response to problems. If I had time I'd maybe look at elance and see how their moderation team works and what we can learn from it. If anyone knows one of their mods please put me in touch.

    I will be a bit more brutal than @sarahk :)
    Is like you go for the first time in the house of somebody and you want to get naked. First of all you must be liked and appreciated and then the party is starting !!!. I've said few times - if there are the rules these must be respected. If there is a way to bypass the rules the use of that one should be punished. I had few times the threads deleted here (I don't even asked why). We're living in a society (even virtual ones) if we don't respect the rules then we're nothing than a horde.
    All the best to DigitalPoint Forum - cheers :)

    So at elance you pay $ for the privilege of using their service. At Digitalpoint you "pay" by being a useful member of the community to use the "services"......

    You're the one who broke the rules by publically asking for likes, yet the mods didn't ban you when they ought to have. And with all that you still refer to them as stupid. You have an interesting sense of justice.

    To be honest you sound like a loser. You want a free logo ad so people can do free work. Then you throw a tantrum when you can't just drop in a forum and exploit it on demand.

    Maybe you could go buy a logo and pay people for their work.

    So go to elance, I guarantee no designer with self respect would take part in a free logo contest. It's ridiculous.

    A couple days ago I created an account on another well-known marketing forum (ahem) and after posting there a couple times I just didn't find it appealing to me at all. Something is missing there. This is the place where I like to come back to again and again.
