Hey ladies! 

I know we have A LOT of new members so I wanted to post this with Admin permission, which I did get. 

In this group, it is against TOS ( terms of service) as it is CM owned and run, for anyone to advertise. You cannot have a link in your signature or recruit in the group. This goes for everyone..I have seen many new ladies in the group that are advertising so I thought I would remind everyone of the TOS. If you are reported, you can be removed from the group, so please don't advertise. I don't want to see anyone removed from the group. 

That is my PSA for the day. wink

ETA: Advertising includes:

  • Work-at-home businesses
  • Products that you are selling (personal or professional)
  • Job opportunities
  • Charities and charitable causes
  • Promoting another website (personal, non-business websites are not advertising)
  • Promoting your entry in a contest (e.g,. "vote for my baby in the cutest baby contest on xyz.com!")

ETA: You are also not to pm others to solicit business. You can be reported through pm as well and removed from CM.

I don't advertise, but it was my understanding that having a short note in your signature was fine, you just couldn't make posts advertising anything. Am I mistaken?

You cannot post a link in your signature...you can put a note, but no link as that is considered advertising by CM.

I'm so glad you posted this!  Too many people are pushing products, and even just "PM me for more details" is advertising.  It gets really old, and part of what we love in this group is promoting healthy weight loss without "miracle" products.
