The rules state:

Advertising and other Self-Promotion


Promoting goods or services in which you have a personal stake is not permitted



So would it be against the rules to post a thread and/or make a list of GMT P500 games that you have purchased, but need more people to buy in order for it to be pushed to "made the cut" or "final production"?

There are already monthly GMT P500 geeklists. Probably a good place to shill for your favorites:

That is NOT a personal stake in the success of the game, unless you owned/worked for GMT, were the game's designer, etc.

After all, you are trying to get GMT to TAKE YOUR MONEY (granted for what you hope is a worthwhile game), not trying to gain money.

Depends how you define "personal stake". If you define it narrowly to mean "has a potential financial benefit from the game's success" then it isn't.

However, if you take a broader definition of "has a personal interest in the game's success" it is a personal stake. It's an interest in seeing the game get produced and more pre orders are needed for that to happen.

However, considering the large number of people in the Recommendations forum shilling for Kickstarter projects they've backed, I think it's fair to assume that it's ok.
