    well, ive been planning to build a forum, and its finally been executed. currently, the forums topic is anything (as in it has everything on it... which i dont think is good cos there are too many of those).
    i was thinking maybe changing the topic of that forum to edsk/sig2dat links forum. do you think it would catch?

    i mean, if not, ok, if so, maybe give me some tips?

    thanks,
    Rafi


    p.s: mods, is it ok that i posted this thread last time i posted one asking for help on my old board, but i posted a link too... is this suitable?

    Well... It seems like advertising to me. Otherwise he wouldn't have posted it in the lounge. He would have posted it in Internetworld instead.

    So you think that if someone posts to mention he has a forum but doesn&#39;t have a link in the post other than in the sig then it&#39;s ok?

    I can see it now. The ton of new posts that say... "I have a forum. Click the link in my sig".

    And you think that&#39;s not advertising? Hmmm.


    May I also point out that tralalala did ask a mods opinion in the first post.

    While we are on this subject can anyone explain the logic in this rule.

    You are not allowed to &#39;advertise&#39; your forum in &#39;a&#39; post. But you are allowed to put it in your sig. Where it appears in every post you make.

    Why not just ban it completely.

    I don&#39;t know. I don&#39;t make the rules. I have only been put in a position where I am supposed to evaluate a situation and apply the rules the best I can.
