Did I miss something?

Did you guys notice that products sold in CurlMart are being linked in our posts?

Are YOU guys doing that? Is that like a new trendy thing? Some of the links go back to product pics that are no longer valid. I haven't noticed it in my OWN posts, but it seems random.

I went back and looked at the Hair Bio thread, and I swear some of the products in people's posts that weren't linked before are now linked.

Am I crazy?

Fia 2cFi, fine texture, med porosity CG 5-29-09 * My hair loves protein! Currently using : DermOrganics Shampoo and IHM, G2B Kinkier Mousse, Re:Coil VMM, Anything Spiral Solutions! MO Sealing. Coconut Oil Pre-Poo, once a month Hard Water shampoo. Avoiding Glycerin in finishing products.

Nope. Not crazy.

There was a general post somewhere (forget where..readers product reviews or general maybe??) that said they were doing this. So however they have it set up it will link it if it recognizes the product. Some of our abbreviations throw it off (not all..seems to recognize KCKT and KCCC)

I thought it was kind of neat!
FIA 2c/3aFi

Done experimenting! Loving Spiral Solutions products!

Pretty ingenious marketing imo. Plus it saves trips to check out the acronyms for new folks. Even better, I can get quick ingredient reads on things - which rocks.

Its seems really random, I've noticed that its linking CCCC lite as CCCC. With an incorrect link.

I'm with Peda, I'm not sure how I feel about this. It is marketing GENIUS, but it sorta gives me the willies.

I've noticed that Deva products don't always link. I saw one for Deva No-Poo, but it doesn't link Deva Curl No-Poo. (I think, I'll have to check it when I post this hehehe).

Obviously they don't have the recognition software programed to recognize ALL of their products. Apparently, I always misspell product names because even when they are in curl mart, and will link for other people, they don't always link for me.

I wonder if you can't see the links in your own posts?

The links take a bit to show up. Goober's weren't there at first, and then they were.

Right, right after I did it, it wasn't there -- like for 5 mins or so, but now when I come back to the thread a little while later they are there. Interesting!

Can't decide how I feel about this. Part of me loves the user-friendliness of it. Part of me dislikes the commercial aspect.

The old fogie part of me is all like, "Back in MY day, when I was a newbie, I had to SEARCH for the product names, try to decipher the acronyms (before the Big Acronym List was created), and THEN go to curlmart to find the listings."

AND I WALKED 5 MILES IN THE SNOW! BAREFOOT! AND WE DIDN'T HAVE ANY HAIR PRODUCTS WHEN I WAS A KID; HAVE I REMINDED YOU OF THAT LATELY????

ok, I'm done now. Ah, that felt good!

Wurly and proud!

My only dalliances up to that point were the earliest type of intranets and AOL. That all changed in very short order, however, once graphics and HTML got going.

What? My curly hair site doesn't pay for and run itself?
You make a good point.
Thank goodness when I was a young curly they did have the secret decoder ring (acronym thread). I don't know what I would have done without it.

I actually think it's great because it will eliminate the guesswork with the acronyms. If it drives traffic to curlmart then so be it. It will be a tremendous help to the newbs and it will stop the kind of newbie questions like "What's KCCC"
