I need your thoughts on this message I got on FB.... - Page 2

post #16 of 22

Clarification:

 

It is not allowed to start a thread asking for Facebook fans.  It has no context and is considered self-promotional.  We have a single long-running thread for people to post their Facebook page if they want to try and get fans, and adding your FB page in your signature line is of course allowed.

 

In this case, starting a thread adding a Facebook page in the original question is frowned upon as it could be viewed as a solicitation for fans instead of a real question.

 

You are allowed to post links as long as it's an answer to a question posted on the boards.

:-) Thanks, ladies, I heart all of you, especially the ones who can spell, and use proper grammar!

 

CC-ing is sure getting complicated. And the "anonymous  moderator" from nowhere is a bit "big brother" or even "socialist Russia-esque" if you ask me (or don't). I am wondering why there isn't a photo with a jack boot on someone's neck, instead of the moderator picture?

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Pseudonymous moderation (or separate accounts when moderators are also regular forum contributors) is actually the norm in many forums. There should be no difference except in how you contact CC in case of moderation issues.

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I get strange emails like that all the time...I just answer that I don't have employees, and that any classes I'm planning would be on my website. You don't have to answer every quetion someone asks you, just send a generic polite response back.

 

As far as the thing about posting a facebook link in a post as opposed to in a signature, I don't see why one would be seen as a solicitation for fans when the other wouldn't. But then again, I was once told by a moderator that I couldn't put my website in my signature because people could find it in my profile. Seems random to me, but whatever.

Funny, I just received an email about a cake starting with "I seen one of these cakes...."

Good grief, made me cringe.

Hello from WI, you're right up the road from me :)

 

 

I get these a lot. I do the same as the others- thanks so much for the compliments, I am a one woman show and do not offer lessons at this time....but there is this GREAT website called Cake Central that has EVERYTHING you need to know to be great!

 

I would tell her that you are licensed, inspected and insured though- it will encourage others in the area to do it the right way.
