I was wondering if BitcoinTalk moderators read private messages sent from user to user. If I try an advertise in a private message is that against the rules? I know that spam is against the rules obviously, but if I add a referral link in a private message am I gonna get busted? I want to give my referral links for people that specifically ask for something. I put a referral link in a thread on here and it got deleted. It was completely relevant, but nevertheless it was deleted.

Does BitcoinTalk only allow advertising in signature and avatar pic? Or can I private message people as well.

I'm worried that if I put a link in my private messages that some bot is going to flag my message and the mods will hate me for it. Don't hate me mods I'm not a spammer or malicious user.

No referral code (ref link) spam.

Sending unsolicited PMs, including but not limited to advertising and flood, is not allowed.

If someone asks you in PM about the website you are trying to promote and you share the ref link then that isn't spam, but adding your ref link in each and every messages is kind of a spam, and sending unsolicited PMs to users with your ref link is absolute spam.

As far as moderators reading your messages is concerned, you should ask them Grin

Sending your site to other users will be considered as spamming and even If if you don't get banned, users will leave you a negative trust which will no longer make you trustworthy in the community and make your account worthless. As for reading messages, I believe it's impossible except for the administration because they have access to the database, but reported P.Ms should be visible for them just like posts are.

I agree with the other responses. Sending PMs adverty your product/services is spamming and very shady. I would definitely leave you a negative trust. Why don't you just post publicly on the services section? If you are confident and not trying to scam, then post it there.

No, we can't directly read PMs, just ones that are reported directly to us. You can send your ref link if it's warranted, but if not and they report the message you'll be banned for unsolicited pm spam

Any administrator has the ability to read arbitrary PM's between users, even if they are not reported.

It has been said this will not happen without the consent of at least one of the parties of a message, and I have not seen evidence that contradicts this.
