How do those articles sound like advertisements? They've got two sentences of information at most, and a link. That's factual information. Please don't continue to add this template without reason. Spaz Kitty 07:34, 10 August 2006 (UTC)

o_O Thats why I thought they sounded like advertisements -- there was essentially no real information, and just a link to a webpage; thus it seemed like they had only added these entries in order to advertise their website.

That's what the stub template is for. =3 And Sine is usually the one who adds the stubs in the first place; advertisement templates are generally used on articles that go on and on about how great the forum/RP is and how everyone should go there. Opinions rather than fact. Spaz Kitty 07:38, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
WikiFur has a lot of pages like that. Most of the time it's just "I didn't have enough time to write a full article on it, so here's the basic information you need to find out more". If people are actively promoting a site as being better than others, then that can sometimes be a problem that the advert template is suited for. --GreenReaper(talk) 18:04, 10 August 2006 (UTC)
