Hello,

Thank you for visiting PhotoshopForums.com.

After careful consideration, we have decided to make an adjustment to our User Guidelines that relates specifically to those who run sites that feature Photoshop tutorials.

From this point forward, if you run or are affiliated with such a site, you are not allowed to post links to your tutorials, even to answer a question. Though it may seem like a strange guideline at first, we believe it makes sense because our community is about community - it's not about dropping in to post links to your site.

What we are encouraging, instead, is for those who run sites like this to post a link to a tutorial at another site, that answers whatever question is being asked. If your site has a tutorial that addresses a given issue, chances are another site has one, as well. Spread the love, please, and it'll come back to you.

At the same time, we also want to allow the opportunity for people to post tutorials that are created for members, that are free of any links or branding. If you want to create a text, graphic, video or other tutorial for a member, that is awesome and we really appreciate it.

When doing so, please do not include any branding outside of your username (assuming your username isn't a website), your real name or something along those lines. Links (whether hyperlinked or not, inside of the graphic or video or not), names of companies you are affiliated with, etc. are not permitted. Text can be posted in the forums, graphics can be attached through the forums or hosted at an image host and video can be hosted at a site like YouTube and you can link to the YouTube video page, which should also be free of any branding, links, etc.

This guideline doesn't affect many people, but we felt it was important to go ahead and set a clear standard, as we do have people who join our community as a means of generating traffic to their tutorial site.

Thank you for reading. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. I appreciate your time and cooperation.

Sincerely,

Patrick
