I have a question about sharing content on this forum.
I understand it is against the guidelines to share promotional content. But what about when the content specifically addresses questions or topics asked by the OP?
If I know of a video or article that’s helpful I share it and it’s never been a problem. But sometimes the only content I know that touches on exactly the question being asked happens to be my own article or video.
I’ve been slapped on the wrist before for linking to my own content so now I just don’t.
I don’t understand how my free content is “promotional” in the first place to be honest. It’s free and I’m not selling anything or make any money off my content creation at all.
I’m on this forum to help people. I publish content to help people.
It feels weird to me when I can share other people’s content to help improve the quality of an answer but if it’s my own it’s considered “promotional” especially when it would be so helpful to the OP to go read my article or watch my YouTube video.
Is there no way to share my own content on this forum without getting banned? Or is there an etiquette to follow to ensure I don’t get flagged as spam when sharing my own stuff?
