[Admin Note] Commercial Links rules suspension for COVID-19 threads
#1
Information 
Commercial Links rules suspension for COVID-19 threads
TO OUR ENTIRE MEMBERSHIP:

For the duration of this Coronavirus pandemic, we are suspending our "commercial link rule" on important longer threads that have a red  [COVID-19]  prefix on them (with a few exceptions).  This is to help our members during this emergency so that we're not overly inconvenienced and can feel free to post links to products, services or other information on commercial websites that are directly related to helping us cope with and deal with the issues that arise as a result of the pandemic.

The suspension of this rule will ONLY apply to those coronavirus threads that have [COVID-19]  as a thread title prefix.  All other threads in public forums must still abide by the commercial links rule, even if the thread title has "coronavirus", "COVID-19" or similar words in the title.  This relaxation of the rule applies only to the threads with the red [COVID-19] thread prefix.

If you'd like to review the policies, our commercial links rules begin with Rule #5 (HERE) and are further explained (HERE).

During this crisis, I must insist that you do not abuse this rule suspension by attempting to generate sales for a site or product that you may profit from personally.  This relaxation of the commercial link rules will not apply to prescription-required items, like CPAP-machines or links to any DME-owned or operated website... those commercial links are still off-limits.

But for the benefit of our members during the crisis, I'm instructing our Admins, Monitors and Moderators to not issue any warnings, nor remove any commercial links in the [COVID-19] threads as long as the link is directly related to products or services that can be of help during this pandemic.  They will remove links and issue warnings if the commercial links posted have little or no relationship to the pandemic issues discussed in these threads.

Keep in mind, not all coronavirus threads will have the [COVID-19] prefix on them, so before posting a commercial link, please make sure you're doing so in one of these [COVID-19] threads.

Thanks for your help in this folks.  We need to help each other as much as possible during this pandemic and Apnea Board will do all we can to assist in this crisis.

Thank you.   Coffee
