To any who are not aware, /a/ has a daily Japanese thread for purposes of learning the language. Over the past few years it and its collection of materials have emerged as one of the most eminent resources for Japanese self-learning on the web. However, there is currently no generally-accepted paid product that many of DJT users use. It's easy to see see how this could be viewed as an untapped market for advertisers, and that's exactly what has happened.

Over the past several weeks, a program for Japanese learning with a monthly service fee, Wanikani, (logo pictured) has begun to be advertised on DJT. This peaked with Wanikani having a New Years' sale which was heavily advertised in the thread. Since that time, the advertising has continued daily - although most veterans of the thread are beyond the point where the program would be useful, many new users may be convinced to give the program a shot. However effective Wanikani's methods are is not what is concerning. What is concerning is that blatant advertising in violation of Global Rule 11 has repeatedly been met with little disciplinary action from moderation. I assume this is because DJT does not have a dedicated janitor/mod, which is understandable. But similar cases of advertising on /a/ (Crunchyroll, the Daiz Fakku scandal, etc.) have been put down swiftly. The advertising by Wanikani, too, should be dealt with if the current rules are to be enforced. Thank you for your time, should any staff read this.

That's nice.

Advertising is against the rules. Report it.
