Hopefully we can address the issues you have stated.
First, we're not sure how you know ads are being taken down for bogus reasons/incorrect reasons as the reasons are not posted for everyone to see.
Second, we have less than an average of 6 'Report A Post' per day on ads. The ones that are reported are usually for 2nd ad wihtin 7 days or TER logo is missing/not working. We do verify if the reason is legit before taking a ad down.
As to why ads are removed or unapproved, the main reasons are (and even the most savy provider makes these mistakes from time to time):
- Touring ad: the dates are not in the subject line ("until this weekend" or "end of week" does not count)
- The TER logo is not clickable - when the logo is clicked it should link back to TER; sometimes there is text next to the logo because the webmaster has been unsuccessful at getting the logo to work; we will usually accept this
Often a logo is clickable one day and then maintenance is done on a site and the logo is corrupted. So yes, you may have been doing this for months/years with no problem, but things do happen that you may not be aware of (why would you click every logo/banner on your site each time you post an ad?)
- The TER logo is missing or somewhere that requires us to look through multiple pages or banners on a page to find it. The guidelines clearly state it should be on the Enter Page or the About Me page and should be easily seen. We are reviewing these guidelines and sometimes we may allow a logo on a different page.
Do we sometimes miss something? The answer is yes. We have over 2500 new posts to read daily and take action. If your ad is not approved or is taken down, and it is not clear as to why, ask. We will take the appropriate action (this varies from case to case).
