low quality event promotion in the event guide

seeing a fair bit of repeated low quality event promotion in the event guide comments by promoters

yep get that people are passionate and enthusiastic about their events and want to spread the word to everyone

that is why we have a fully featured dynamic event guide

but repeated low quality promotional comments  in the event comments by promoters does have a negative effect on the event guide

we do have guidelines and we do expect member to follow them both in actions and spirit

it is a free feature, show some respect, drop the spammy comments and the repeated posts

cheers

mike

EVENT PROMOTERS GUIDELINES - Please read & follow

[Note: this guide shows to event posters/promoters only! Other members do not see this]

Guidelines that may assist you in running your event listing on the Soul Source Event Guide..

TITLES - Please use A-Z only - for Event Titles. Your event will show in many places so the title MUST be Plain and Simple - The title of the Event Only!

EDIT - Please use the 'Manage Event' link to edit your event details after posting - Such as date, title, content etc

CANCEL - Please use the 'Flag This Event' link to request event removal eg if canceled etc. Or if you do have any concerns or questions

COMMENTS - Please use the event comments to pass on informative info only - Please do NOT use the comments to bump events up

OTHER SITES - Please only post facebook adverts and/or other 3rd party links in the main event section - not in the comments

CHECK - After posting an event - Please check the event listings and your profile for duplicates! If there are please flag them asp.

NEW FEATURE - Promoters can now use the 'Add Similar Event' feature. This makes adding similar events very easy. The link shows next to the flag/report link on one of your published events

*ONE EVENT ONE ENTRY - We do have a policy of one event guide entry for each event. No repeats or posts or sub-event type entries in other sections please

*LOCAL & INTERNATIONAL GUIDES - These and similar location based guides are automatically generated, ensure your event does have a valid location entered

REVIEWS - No reviews by promoter please' policy. All promoters of events ( inc the event guide posting member) are requested to use the comments rather than the review feature once their event has ended

Thanks

another day another step in

-------------------------------------------------------------

When you post an event guide comment it shows on the event guide entry first of all

The title  and a link to the entry then also shows on the front page of site, it also shows on the forum index, it also shows on the event guide index, it also shows on the event category index and it also shows in the 'activity' feed

This all means that posting many comments floods these pages/features with the title of your event causing a really negative effect on them all, as in the front page display, forum display etc etc

Not only does it cause this, many comments also increases the loading time of the event entry and makes your own event entry harder to load, read and share

It also has a negative effect on all the other members comments and events in the guide by pushing them right down the display order and often leads to other event promoters then trying to counter this push down effect by posting even more comments, which all cause more damage to the event guide

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

COMMENTS - Please use the event comments to pass on informative info only - Please do NOT use the comments to bump events up
