    1) A recommendation, backed by reasons

    2) A note that you will PM

    3) No mention of pricing, or slagging off competitors.
    Thanks for your opinion

    If I don't want to buy from CP or anyone else then I won't I am quite capable of going elsewhere for quotes etc...

    If I want a quote from your company I'd contact you and ask for one.

    Why don't you stump up some advertising cash or do you think you can punt your wares for free on here?

    Hi Ben

    Thanks for your opinion.

    I appreciate that it takes cash to run Edugeek & I genuinely think its an excellent forum.

    We are considering advertising, I have recently been sent the prices.

    I am trying to reach a happy medium.

    I am not trying to advertise for free (or "punt my wares"!), I wish to simply give advice where I can & if we have a product or service thats suitable PM the relevant person.

    To be fair I realise its probably not reasonable to post a price as this simply can antagonise competitors.

    I have done this in the past & I apologise & certainly wont do so again.

    Thanks again for your view.

    Thats fine however I think that taking it behind closed doors by using the PM system isn't in the best interests of Edugeek either.

    Can I ask why Ben?

    Surely this allows the poster to decide if they want to take it further without the forum descending into a Dutch Auction.

    You stay in control.

    That is the norm in all other forums that I participate in, where commercial information is involved.

    Edugeek rules state there is to be no advertising from non paid up suppliers.

    Why should those that choose not to pay be able to spam our members via the PM it's different if someone PM's a supplier and asks for a price.

    I am certainly not going to Spam anyone & I am not advertisng anything.

    How can they know what price etc we can do without us PMing them?

    The poster is asking for advice, all I want to do is give them that advice.

    To be fair they are hardly likely to PM asking for a price if they dont know us!

    This is getting way off topic now if you want to discuss this more with the site owners go ahead I am going to call it a day and hope that the OP has the info he requested now.

    Elemtech - that has to be the most obvious advertising spin I've seen in a long time - pointless posts, all with your company sig abusing your position on the forum.

    What's the point of CPLTD paying for the privilege and then you strutting all over it.

    Either we have advertisers who pay or we don't. At this rate CPLTD deserves a refund. Shame on you.
