Originally posted by smegs:I guess what I'm looking for is a specific statement saying it is or isn't allowed. Games having been greenlit that used such tactics doesn't really say anything. Valve may have not known about their promotions, or it may not have made a significant difference to the vote totals and they ignored it.
