    I think it's legal for regular members to buy sig space, since non-members can as well. A foreign site can offer members to buy their ad space and they're never even a member of the forum, right?

    Yeah, you can buy and rent signatures here, though in the case of renting the signatures of others, you still need to be a Jr. VIP. To clarify, another moderator stated that, "If you can't use your own signature, you can't use someone else's signature".

    All of the rules related to signature spaces below still apply to rentals.

    Additionally, while there's a BST section for signatures in the Jr. VIP Zone, it's not required that you post a sales thread to rent out a signature space.

    This is something that needs clarification in the forum rules. It does look a very grey area because there is no specific rule regarding non jr vips renting signature space from a jr vip.

    I did remember seeing this somewhere though.

    I'd like to add though that if you're renting out your signature you'll find it easier if you are a active member here... same goes if you're looking to rent, you'll want a member who is actually using BHW on a regular basis and/or has a good reputation. Renting out a guy who only posts once a year won't help you much. Likewise, if you never spend any time on BHW you won't find anyone who cares about your sig.

    you can buy sig space from a jrvip regardless of your membership status. if you want to sell your sig space you got to be jrvip.

    Read @Zwielicht's post above, Dave.

    That is not really permitted.

    I've noticed some changes on the TOS page, but I agree that they still need to be updated.

    For now, any rules I find that aren't mentioned on the TOS page or in a sticky thread will be included in this thread: https://www.blackhatworld.com/seo/new-forum-new-rules-lets-update-the-forum-rules.854057/

    Actually, I don't find the length intimidating. In fact, I would be up to the task of cleaning up that page. After all, it's only 5,191 words (excluding any new content).
