Do I have to provide evidence? Can't I just be lazy, say it's a scam and be done with it?

Just kidding. On topic, doesn't this count as advertising? I mean, I might try it but just thought I'd ask that.

Edit: Changed my wording in one sentence because I typed it wrong.

Just read your sig. How can someone be here for seven years and not know the forum rules?

Scam? Maybe. Appropriate to advertise here? Absolutely not.

Hello! I looked up the rules before posting this. Rules are:

1. Inappropriate Links
~ Advertising for profit or personal gain. Links to youtube videos that the poster has monetized, crowdfunding projects to pay a person to make a series of webisodes, or any other form of link that gives personal profit is not allowed.
Allowed: Links to crowdfunding sites are allowed as long as they break no other rules (scam/adult content) and are for smaller independent companies creating an actual product. Links to music or other art you create is also allowed so long as there is no purchase links/pay for hits involved.

I'm not advertising for profit or personal gain, its the users who try it out that get something out of it. I don't receive any gain whether they try this out or not. If this is truly against the rules, I'm sure they'll take it down. Then, my apologies.

It's advertising nonetheless. And this really does not go into general discussion. That right there is one mistake. The thread that might get you banned is pasted on the front page of Crunchyroll.

And I know this is completely irrelevant and really doesn't matter that much, but this is an anime site first and foremost. Yeah we have manga and game forums, but...Christ I'm starting to sound like I've been here forever or I'm a mod or some shit.

Sorry, I gotta go. Need to reevaluate how I'm talking in freaking CR forums.

Hi. Even if not a scam and doesn't result in profit to you personally, it is a kind of advertising that's not appropriate as a thread in CR's forums, so I'm closing it (and deleted the opening post).

Threads started for the purpose of advertising things like crowdfunding projects are allowed, but not for commercial businesses even if it's not the poster's business.
