Hi guys, we have clarification on this: Promoting an extra item as free or bonus, or offering a bonus outside of the main download package is not allowed. In these cases Support can take action, if it is reported.

However, Authors can include bonuses that pass review in their main download package so long as it isn’t advertised.

I hope this clears it up for you! Carmen

Thanks for clearing things up, Carmen. I’m still waiting to see what action was taken on the situation I reported, as that clearly doesn’t fit in the above.

Guess I should file another report then, as now I saw someone giving another one of his TF files on sale as a bonus. That definitely didn’t pass the review as a ‘non-advertised bonus in the main download’.

Call me paranoid for hunting and policing like this, but I really don’t think this is fair to other authors.

EDIT : just saw the ‘action’. The text that advertised the bonus in question was…. removed. Wow, guess authors can continue giving bonuses like that until someone like me or from staff sees it and… ‘takes action’. Not a bad deal…

*I didn’t have any strong tag in my reply, but maybe the forum interpreted my asterix (and I can’t edit). Let’s try and close it, the asterix at the beginning shouldn’t be visible.

EDIT : pffff… someone from staff should take care of this, please. Had no idea we can’t use an asterix in the text, in order to define a reference…

No, I want people to see what I wrote, so I’ll wait for staff to kindly help. It’s not like TF is falling apart because of an asterix :)
