The asset store forum, as rightly indicated is only for marketstore content. I cannot post there until content is sent and accepted for the unreal store. The moderator allowed me to post on this general discussion.
Some people will never like any type of promotion on forums, but the reality is, many customers on a budget would loose out, as lots of customers who don’t have 3d experience in making their own assets value purchasing low cost assets to help their learning and level set skills in any engine.
Also, in helping customers with the start of what will be a large collection of unreal ready assets.
In answer to your comment about how I contribute in a meaningful way, I also supply many free packs to this community time to time as a thankyou to unreal forum mods for allowing me to post and forum goers. Full packs with full commercial license for free…at certain times of year
