I just wanted to note that I’ve added this text to the About the Nature Talk Category text, under “This is not a place for:”
- Solely promoting your work or cause and only linking to other sites (eg Instagram, YouTube, personal site, etc). If you want to share your work, it should be framed in such a way as to start a discussion here on the forum.
We’ve had a few posts there lately that seem to be purely promotional, linking to articles or social media accounts without any sort of attempt at starting a discussion. This is, first and foremost, a place to discuss things. If you want to share your work or a friend’s work, please a) be judicious, this shouldn’t primarily be a promotional board and b) frame it in a way that starts a discussion about it. So I added that clarifying text.
