but...i dont mind it, because i assume Mothering needs funds from donations and auctions to keep these wonderful FREE to use boards running so smoothly....and arent making any extra cash from promoting their own auctions on their own website.
if we were able to link to all our stuff, it would maybe bring unsavories who want to profit from us and not partake in this community, as well as steal some thunder from wahm and the quality companies who pay for advertising.
is that what you meant by the question? maybe i didnt follow you exactly????
I agree with the previous poster. If Mothering provided free advertising (by allowing auction links), they wouldn't be able to get anyone to pay for advertising. They have board moderators and web administrators to pay (and I'm certain they are not making large sums of money), as well as adminstrative costs, hardware costs, etc. It is, after all, their site, and they should be able to advertise their own stuff any way they choose.
