It occurred to me that I should write a little about this in case anyone's wondering about what dogie's doing, or why other people are getting banned for somewhat similar activity:

Ads are typically not allowed in posts (outside of the signature area) because they are annoying and off-topic. It is especially disallowed to put ads or signatures at the bottom of all of your posts. Except for traditional valedictions, which are tolerated but discouraged, signatures are for the signature area only.

However, if you are using the forum as a publishing platform to host something really substantial and useful, selling ads in that substantial work is allowed. To be eligible for this, your post must be in a topic that you started, and your post must be substantial and long enough to make the ad seem entirely insignificant. If in doubt, ask me.

Seems like this was always obvious but I guess it wasn't to some people. Maybe this should be stickied otherwise it'll just flow down and get forgotten.

BTW, I added this to the unoffcial rule thread: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=703657.0. Have I correctly phrased it (Rule 24)?

So simply put. You may not put a banner image at the bottom of each of your posts UNLESS it is a topic started by you that contributes to the community is a valuable way.

Huh Correct?

Can I put an ad at the bottom of: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=748821.0 (For example only)

No, not every post.

And no, that thread certainly doesn't qualify.

So what about this thread of mine: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=774828.0

Can I add a banner ad? (most likely to another thread of mine not a site)

Definitely doesn't look long, substantial and useful enough to me.

Take a look at one of dogie's posts:

This sets bad precedence. Soon, more and more people will be asking if their OP is good enough to have ads. Where will the fine line be? Mods will then either have to objectively define what qualifies, or will have to constantly use their own judgement on every request.

Yes, he asked for it in advance and is allowed to do so. There was a seperate thread for that.
