What is considered "Advertising"

I'm not trying to be smart or anything, I was just wondering what types of things were considered advertising or not. People advertise their stuff for sale, so what is not acceptable? Is it like posting a banner that says where to go to get certain parts and stuff?

If it links you to purchasing items, it's advertising.

B/c I work at a sign shop and can make the window stripes and such and I was going to post that you can order custom lettering ones through me, but I'm not sure if that would be advertising. I don't want to get banned or in trouble with the forums.

Just ask us (mods) for permission, give us the link (Via PM) we'll check it out and if we find it acceptable, we'll let you post it.

I don't actually have a link to the sales, but I can get a link to the business and then they can call or email.

Anything other than Car-Forums.com.

There is a specific section to advertise personal sales of cars and things related to cars. It's not intended for commercial advertising for a used car lot, a parts store advertising specials... Some things are slipping through.

It's best to ask first...or try your luck.

Sorry, Bav, but I'm gonna have to take that one up with UFF, as that definition is BS.

Signing up here to promote another website, or a product, is definitely advertising. But an existing member providing a link to a site or forum that will help a specifically asked question (such as telling a person to ask a BMW specific question on a particular BMW forum, or giving a link to Summit Racing in response to a question about the best place to get a Holley carb new) cannot be construed as advertisement. Advertisement is, by definition, soliciting. Responding to a question with a site of company you're not affiliated with, as a way of helping the person asking the question, is NOT soliciting.

<---agrees with Chris. i remember that in my thread about advertising (Advertising = Bad), i referred to people giving links to outside sources in response to a question as legit, and not advertising.

There aren't that many non product sites out there and those that are, usually have some form of third party advertising.
