GrabCAD Community User Group

Self promotion on GrabCAD has been getting worse lately. Is it just me that gets annoyed by it? I figured we could discuss it for a bit and see if anyone agrees, or maybe you'll convince me it is a great idea.

What is self promotion? It's creating content on GrabCAD, and/or another platform (i.e. YouTube), then posting about everywhere on GrabCAD.

I don't want to call out a few members that have been doing it a lot recently, let's just say that after their content is uploaded they post links in the Questions section and several Groups at the same time. There usually isn't a question associated with the post. And the Groups selected are often unrelated to the content.

I get why the posts are created. I'm "guilty" of answering questions by pointing someone to a Tutorial I posted. But there is a context and reason for directing them there. I don't post a new tutorial, then tell half a dozen Groups about the tutorial being uploaded.

What are your thoughts on self promotion posts. Do you like them? Hate them? Do you create them? Report them?
