Pimp journals still banned?

I remember FA making a rule saying users aren't allowed to make journals pimping raffles and such, but I can't find the rule. Was the rule removed?

I half-thought was something else, but you can't promote raffles in your journals?

One time, there was a rule saying you can’t require users to post about raffles (but they can still if they choose), think it was causing spam.

Just don't go overboard with it. ;)
(This is not, like, rules-level advice, just some background to the original rule.)

As I recall a contributing issue that lead to the rule being introduced, back when, was that one raffle journal received so many comments it actually caused technical issues with the site (as well as spamming up everyone's notifications, but I think official policy on that is "vote with your watch"). While this is unlikely to recur (that journal was claiming to raffle off like $1k if memory serves, and there have been server upgrades since), it's worth keeping in mind and possibly capping entries if comments start getting up into the triple digits and the journal or submission starts consistently having issues loading.
