    Hi Guys,

    I just had a quick question regarding the BHW Premium/Donor Membership. I've already searched the boards and shot off a few PMs to get an answer but have so far come up short.

    My question is: If I were to sign up, are there any restrictions on what I can and cannot put into my forum signature?

    I ask because I am about to launch several large giveaways and competitions on my personal blog that are related to social media, SEO and so on. The prizes are high value and I'm certain that they would interest the vast majority of the BHW community and I would like to include a link/banner to whatever current giveaway I have going on via my forum signature.

    Does anyone have any further knowledge about what is/is not allowed in the forum sig of a Donor member? I've got zero intention of spamming and was actually just going to pay for the membership and press on anyway, however, out of respect and to avoid accidentally breaking rules/stepping on toes, I thought I'd check in with you guys first.

    I'd really appreciate any constructive insight.

    Thanks guys!

    Hey SEOExplored,

    As a Donor, you would be able to include a maximum of 3 links or 1 banner image (728x90 pixels) in your signature space.

    Remember all the forum rules apply, so no promoting other forums etc and refrain from calls to action such as 'PM me'.

    I always thought we could have 2 links along with one banner. Is this possible?

    Hey Jasmiin,

    I really appreciate the timely response!

    That's really cleared things up for me and I've brushed up on the forum rules again and as far as I can see, I should be fine using my signature in the way that I'd like to.

    Thanks you and everyone else for their insight!
