I often find little jewels of advice on this forum. People often recommend a tool or site that I find valuable. I understand that we do not want to turn BHW into an affiliate pitch farm. But I would like a way for people to use their affiliate links unobtrusively in the forum, so I can do more than just hit the thanks button when they help me out. Take for instance when the person who told me about a site a while back. I would gladly have signed up under his affiliate link to thank him. However, he of course did not mention in his post that he had an affiliate link, and I only found out about it when I signed up and could have given him a free month with BL for referring me. What I am suggesting is that Jr. Vips and above be able to place a small icon (like the "tags" icon) at the end of their post when it contains a link to the website or service they are mentioning in the post. Clicking on this icon would take interested people to the place in question via the posters affiliate link. Only one icon per post, and infractions given to those who spam the icon in their posts. Keeping it as a JRVip perk will weed out the majority of icon spammers (we will slap the rest of the offenders around), and give the JRVip section another perk. I have great respect for this forum and the members here too, and I do not want to diminish this forum in any way. BUT, I would be happy to sign up under many of the members affiliate link if I am going to buy that product or use that service anyway. But the method needs to be unobtrusive, and not lend itself to spamming, or it will not be a positive thing for the forum.
