#6 Are we allowed to encourage Gaians to like us on Facebook by offering rewards like 1000g per "vote" ?
my concern is that some Moderators have claimed that such action is taken as Off-site Trading.
I remember awhile back you asked the users to like Gaia on facebook and in return we had a chance of helping you win something and IF you won, we( the users) got a prize out of it.
You use the same tactics your Moderators say others can't do, you set a double standard.
A double standard is the application of different sets of principles for similar situations, or to different people in the same situation. A double standard may take the form of an instance in which certain concepts (often, for example, a word, phrase, social norm, or rule) are perceived as acceptable to be applied by one group of people, but are considered unacceptable when applied by another group.
You can do it but others can't, that´s a messed up example you set for the users, it's very Confusing but Acceptable If we knew the real reason you desperately needed those votes.
you needed the popularity on Facebook to attract more sponsors?You say it's so you will have our support, want us to watch more ads? we'll do it if that is necessary just to keep this site alive. sure, no problem.
How to White-List Ads on Gaia
In 2008 when i joined Gaia, for me it was really hard to earn 1000g,I had to play Pinball 120 minutes to get that amount of gold gaia_gaiagold , today in 2013,1000g is nothing.
One of the reasons for bringing this up is because recently I was accused of doing this but No evidence was found , someone gave 1000 gold gaia_gaiagold as a tip (not a donation, I Sextans do not accept donations ) for a posted opinion in the Gaia Forums. i have never voted on Something off-site, never!
Also in regards to the tip function,this should be considered the same thing but just more than 25gold.
6-1 They liked my post and they wanted to tip me 1000g , so do tips suddenly violate the Tos?
6-2 Why would anyone want to put their account and reputation at risk for a simple 1000 gold gaia_gaiagold reward ?
Maybe clarifying a few things could help future problems involving these things,setting a double standard doesn't help us.
but i'll gladly take the Official Warning from you "Jefe de Jefes" whatever it takes to make a point Lanzer,hoping a misunderstanding like this never happens again to a fellow gaian.
Taking such action is considered off-site trading. You are using Gaia Online as an advertising and promotion platform for your product/service/page/etc on Facebook and offering Gaia Gold as compensation. We do not allow this because, first, you are advertising through means that we have not authorized. Two, you are using our copyrighted material to support this advertising. This is current policy, we can, obviously, look into changing this to fit whatever needs we see fit, but moderators are correct, this is not allowed. Additionally, another reason is that we have no way to verify if the person has actually liked your Facebook page, there's no way we can verify anything that the user has done.
