In the guidelines it said "Unauthorized advertising on MOBAFire is not allowed"

Just post in Introductions and Matchmaking and you should be fine.

You guys seem to have different ideas about the rules.
I made the thread after you gave me the green light, and it was deleted.
the message I got by "Mowen":

"The thread advertising your clan has been deleted. Advertising is not allowed anywhere on this site, even if it is related to League of Legends.

Our General Rules and Guidelines state:

"Unauthorized advertising on MOBAFire is not allowed anywhere. Related banners and links may be used in signatures and posts at the discretion of MOBAFire. Should any material be deemed unacceptable it must be removed immediately."

Please refrain from advertising in the future. If you continue to do so stricter action will be taken."

It was this thread:
http://www.mobafire.com/league-of-legends/forum/matchmaking/na-euw-eune-zealot-gaming-multi-gaming-worldwide-community-20453

Soo, let me ask again, Is it allowed ?

Clan advertisement should be allowed, That's the main purpose of the matchmaking forums! finding others with the same mindset to play with!

If you had read the thread that Jpikachu had linked, you would have seen this:

DEWO wrote:
So if you are looking for some Guild/Clan/League please post IN THIS TOPIC, dont spam with making a new topic just for you.

It asks you to post in that thread, not to create one specifically for your clan or group. So advertising is allowed, but it looks like you need to do it inside that thread. Now I can't view the thread you have linked us, but I've seen (and there are currently) threads that promote / invite people to their clan.

I would be in favor of allowing clan advertisment in this forum though (meaning the matchmaking forum). It seems like the place to do it.

PS: So this guy gets in trouble too then, for advertising his group?

Clan advertisement is not allowed. I've started taking a stricter stance on this since the people who do this are just coming here to use our site as free advertising and get them to come to their site. If the person that wanted to advertise their clan was a regular member or contributed to the site it would be a different story.

Is that threshold at the discretion of the person reporting / the reviewing mod then?

What about Polse?
Or this "new guy" who's advertising for a group?
Or Mooninites?

New guy isn't ok others are. It is up to mod discretion. I didn't clear out everything just the more recent ones.

So we should be reporting everyone we see making a thread for their clan / group, and then let the mod decide what to do.

Good to know.
