    A forum where we can talk about specific markets

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by Steerpike, Sep 10, 2011.

    I do not think we are supposed to do that in the Publishers forum. I thinking about a place we can mention specific markets looking for submissions, or give our feedback about markets.

    You are missing the point of why we don't allow it. It's to keep out both advertising by stakeholders in those markets pretending to be satisfied customers, and to also keep out grudge posting badmouthing agencies or markets.

    If you think this is paranoia, you should see some of the shady stunts would-be smappers hgave tried to slip their ads in, even doun to adding shill accounts to ask the right question to get a "helpful" recommendation.

    So you'll have to count on the other resources, like Preditors and Editors and the various reputable market publications for that kind of information.
