  • That stuff belongs in the marketplace, not general areas.

  • By posting that link you are actually promoting a business so it applies to school fundraisers. You are asking CM members to give money to someone. It can apply to any link outside of cafemom and has been applied even to political sites since they are requesting votes.

    You can post journals and flag them for the market place or you can add it to a few different kinds of widgets on your profile. You can also post it to your thought bubble. Outside of those areas it is usually not allowed.
    You didn't say where you posted this. In answers for sure it is not allowed and in groups it depends on the group's individual guidelines. CM owned public groups don't allow it at all and very few private will either. You just have to read and post accordingly.
