    Hi folks. With the recent growth it's been a bit like the wild west here lately. For a long time there were just a few kind individuals selling specific items for our small niche market. However, that time has passed and we realize we're long overdue for some advertising policies.

    While the forum's growth means there are more things we are able to accomplish, it also means more costs for us.

    To date TMC hasn’t collected any fees for selling things on our site. That’s going to change over the next couple weeks as we ease into some proper structure. Basicly anyone promoting or selling something on TMC should have an arrangement with TMC management. This is standard for most forums and we've put it off for too long.

    This is still a work in process, but our preliminary Advertizing Policy is posted here. To start we’ll have a Sponsors’ Forum where sponsors are allowed to post within certain guidelines. The goal here is to keep promotional type messaging out of the main forum, but in a place people can find it when they’re looking. Advertising threads from businesses we don’t yet have an agreement with will go in a Provisional forum.

    If you have already been advertizing on TMC without an arrangement, please be proactive and fill out our Sponsors Form.

    Cheers!
