    Fundraising where a product will not be obtained by the purchaser/donor - a signature link, that fits within the members signature guidelines, is all that is allowed.

    Fundraising where a product is obtained by the donor, for verified charity or organization*- Active member may start ONE thread related to the fundraiser and may have a signature link that fits within the members signature guidelines.

    *Verified charity or organization - such as Boy Scouts popcorn sales, Girl Scouts cookie sales, things of that nature.

    If you are unsure how your fundraiser falls, please start a Private Channel with Staff thread here: http://www.militarysos.com/forum/private-channel-staff/ and we will review it with you.

    Consultant/Home Business listings - Active members may have ONE thread PER business. If member wishes to start a new thread due to a change in special, catalog, etc., they are responsible to start a Private Channel with Staff thread here: http://www.militarysos.com/forum/private-channel-staff/ to ask that the old thread be closed BEFORE a new thread related to the business is started. A signature link that fits within the members signature guidelines is also allowed.

    ***** Craft, Etsy and Facebook shops will be considered to be home businesses. *****

    Yard Sale/I'm purging my closet type sales - Any active member can post this type of thread. Please limit your items to one thread.

    Staff asks all members to remember that these guidelines are here to help protect our members, but the responsibility rests with you to protect yourself.

    For those who wish to sell or rehome pets - these transactions are not allowed on MSOS. Please refer to this thread for more information: Rehoming pets - please read!


    PLEASE BE ADVISED: Unsolicited PMs to members regarding solicitation and advertising are NOT allowed. You may PM someone with information if they PM you first or if they indicate in a thread that they would like more information from you. You may NOT PM someone with the intent to solicit business from them without express and clear conversation from them that your solicitation is welcome.


    Staff and MSOS assume no responsibility in any and all transactions.

    Effective from this date forward

    This version of Advertising and Fundraising Guidelines supersedes all previously posted guidelines.

    We have a thread for that: The Official "Vote for..." thread!

    As we see threads of that nature independently posted, we merge them into that thread.
