From this point forward, until overridden by WD staff, I will consider these announcements to be advertising. And advertising is not permitted. For two reasons.
First of all, this isn’t merely announcing the availability to fellow writers. It’s an enticement to participate. As such, it is in direct competition with Writers Digest, who provides their own contests and competitions.
Secondly, there is no point of discussion or of information. This is, first and foremost, a discussion forum. Not an advertising venue.
I understand that these posts have been permitted previously. And since there’s no private messaging option right now, this is open to discussion.
I want forum participants to be aware of avenues like this. But there is a difference between information and advertising. The former is encouraged. The latter will be blocked.
