THIS IS NOT BACKPAGE

How to advertise on the Grain Belt News. READ BEFORE POSTING. Grain Belt News is an information and entertainment portal that permits advertising - not an advertising site with discussion. Ignoring these simple rules has led to apoplectic fits by people who find themselves cut off from the system.

You will note the all caps in the title - this is not appropriate here.

You will note a little further down a subject line - Some Tips on Writing Ads- please become familiar with them. Daily advertising WILL get your access privileges revoked. If you aren't organized enough to figure out a schedule for a week at a time, you probably shouldn't advertise here.

Most of us are smart enough to figure out if your schedule for a week will fit within our schedules - you don't need to remind us every day of that schedule - it's annoying AND spamming.

You will note - there are a few rules of decorum and deportment that are expected here - you will find a subject further down called "Rules of the Forums" which are very short and concise.

I've tried to explain this to a couple ladies... It is helpful to them for a couple reasons. We get to know them better, and people don't get the impression that they are only here to take from the community...

Since I've been associated with GBN, the ladies who had the most success here are the ones who regularly posted in the forums -- not the ones who continuously advertised.

Ladies, posting regularly in the forums allows the gents the opportunity to get acquainted with you on a mental and psychological level, to some degree. Being smart and being able to express yourself intelligently in the forums is very sexy to many gents. Trust me, the effort more than pays for itself.

The same goes for gents. Intelligent and thoughtful posts in the forums will get you noticed (and even appreciated) by many companions. Do you think this may help in scheduling hobby dates? I know it does.

The saddest fact of this ''hobby"/lifestyle is that too many, both companions & actual &\or potetial clients, just do not care!

I've been castigated for being too rough on the ones who do nothing but advertise.

Those who have done so should note that I have not ceased. Doing nothing but advertising is not what we're about. The rules are really really simple. Taking some time to learn them - about 5 minutes - isn't too much of a burden.

And people can choose to use GBN solely for advertising, but there's a pittance of a price for it. Roughly one year of advertising what it costs for a day on some sites.

I agree with Pubs I personally like the discussions, and I feel as if I get to know some of these people and would be more comfortable in meeting the because of this...

People are permitted to use the site solely for advertising - but running this joint isn't free.

I can happily provide personal testimony about the positive effects of some of my better posts contributions! It really is a great opportunity to share how multi-faceted we are as people (we aren't limited to a one-dimensional Contractor role here). My sincere thank you to those who've struck up private conversations with me, that have lead to personal encounters, based on a few well placed and well received words.

I am seeing a number of new female registrations, and on follow up, see that the people linked to those registrations are/have been BP girls.

Read this before you post your first ad. The last one who didn't bother got ripped stem to stern for the low class approach permitted on BP. It is not acceptable here.

Of course, I don't actually expect them to put in the effort to read the rules here, they obviously don't apply to them, right?

I've tried, really tried, to get BP advertiser's attention.

Three, today alone, show the laziness typical of BP advertisers.

Not one of those three, even after formal warnings, bothered to read any portion of this section.

You'll not be hearing from them a third time if they repeat.

Time for a bump.

Please note: These advertising rules were here years before you, and likely for years after you sail off to the horizon. Don't expect them to be changed for you.

This rapid influx of lazy is pissing me off.

We have rules of conduct. Here is the consequence of disregarding them
