Premium Backdrops are 11 of the top 18 posts in the HONGZ Forum.  I know that they are a sponsor but flooding the forum is IMHO annoying.  Kinda like robocalls and political adds.

As always... Counting the days till Christmas.

SORRY, sponsor or not, it is akin to a form of spamming. I have submitted several complaints to the moderator with no response.

Don't the sponsors help keep this forum alive by paid advertising ?

One ad a day is spamming?  Just went a few weeks back on this forum and it looks like you need more original posters.  My brother left me some N stuff that I need to unpack and I’ll post some pics.

I really liked some of the layout pics that have been posted here in the past.  Need more.

It is NOT the ad itself that is the problem, but rather the excessive multiple repetitions, without any apparent customer response. I do agree we need more member participation on this forum, but sponsors should have to abide by some rules just as we do.

I find it interesting I'm discussing a store that I have not bought anything from nor probably ever will (I use wood store fronts against a blue painted wall), but in the last 48 hours the topic store has posted one ad here.  Lets call another store "store A" that has done 2 posts.

On another forum, this store has done 1 post, store A has done two posts, store B has done two posts, and store C has done 4 posts.  Frankly, I always thought store C, on a day to day basis, was the one that overdid it.  However, I just bypass their posts and go on to the posts I want to read.

As far as no comments on their posts, not many of the other ads get comments.  Besides, a forum needs participants to see the ad to make a comment.  I think if this forum had more original posters here nobody would have noticed these ads.  As it is, this forum goes days without a new post so it looks like the daily post of this company is spamming.  At least they have taken an interest in the HONGZ forum.

Myself, as long as the advertisers keep the OGR forums going I'm happy.  Maybe once in a while I'll open their posts to see what they have.

It also seems that such ad "overkill" might actually be a turnoff for prospective customers, but what do I know?

Yes, it most certainly is.  Especially Ron's store C mentioned above.  Often, their ad is still on page one of the 3 rail forum and it is reposted.
