Hi,
I'm sorry for asking a question I'm sure is old hat. I've done a search but also wanted some 'live' feedback. Mods, please feel free to remove this thread is it's just to noob to live!=)
So:
I have a friend, irl, that started a website. He will also be publishing a book soon that is related. The website is an opinion and interaction site, much like ATS except it's based on Christian topics and opinions. It's completely free. I don't get anything out of it. He doesn't even know I've checked it out yet. (that's for anyone who wonders about motives) It's just really, in my opinion, a very awesome, well thought out, site.
I would Love to share it with people at ATS. We have some amazing critical thinkers here that I think would both enjoy it and benefit the site. It's still just starting up.
I know the obvious answer is just to U2U people I feel would be interested. I do plan to do that. But because I mostly read here, not post, I don't "know" to many folks, as yet.
So I was wondering what a good place to do this would be? Or even if it's allowed? I have seen it done here when someone found a good site. I have also seen it be criticized as just 'advertising' and not appropriate. So I felt like I should get some feedback before I posted. (The worst way to mention a new place would be to get negative attn for it by not presenting it well, IMO.)
Thoughts?
Advice?
Again,
I apologize, as I know this has to have come up hundreds of times. But each situation is unique, so I wanted to use the question board to clarify my question a bit. Thanks in advance to anyone who reads this and/or gives me a hint how to handle it!=)

(It truly is completely non-for-profit, he doesnt even ask donations. I just really enjoy the level of intelligent posting there and think a lot of ATSers would as well!)

We have an entire forum for discussion of other websites: Cool Websites.

People really need to explore BTS more.

Im surprised you haven't been banned yet. ATS takes advertising very seriously (as you no doubt can see), and should you even mention another website, you'll have to pay the almighty $$$.

You obviously have your own opinions of ATS. Ones I don't share. I knew if i asked an honest question to get information (rather than a question trying to start an argument!) someone would help me. It's a shame that despite that positive, polite, timely response I got to an honest question you chose this thread to take a swipe at ATS.
Again,
Thank you Gools for the response to the awful noob type question! I appreciate it!

Me? I love coming here to discuss topics. I wasn't insulting you or ATS at all. Just stating true facts, with a bit of my own patented sarcasm.

You're exactly right.

When people are honest and up front, we have no problem with helping them promote another site.

It's when they sneak around and try recruit our membership in violation of the TAC when things get ugly.

Since this seems like an opportune moment, i just want to be on record for being upfront. My name/avatar is purely a conceptual entity, no "Foundation" actually exists, but if anyone has some bags of money laying around the house getting in their way, the "Foundation" would be more then happy to help relieve you of your clutter. Just know that your donation is going to a good cause and thanks to ATS we open eyes and minds 24/7.
