    Hi, is there a way to locate forums that allow ******** signatures (and don't have a minimum post before sig shows up, hopefully). Is there a list, can it be scrapeboxed?

    [edit] d-o-f-o-l-l-o-w got turned into *******'s.

    I think most forums have d0follow links and don't require a minimum post count. You could try scraping it but I don't know if there is a generic footprint out there on the forum rules pages that would work on a mass scale.

    One way to do it would be to scrape users profile pages with 0 posts and then run that through the outbound link checker. You could then go on and use the link checker to check for text such as rel="nofollow" - this would turn up all the pages with nofollow links but the nofollow could be for internal linking or signature links.

    I think you should change your avatar because it's obscene. I agree with you that ******** links are found in most forums. What does scraping for this mean?

    Here is a footprint I use with scrapebox and have had great results with.

    Code:
    "Find all posts by""Find all threads started by""Total Posts: "signature" 
    Found it here on BHW a while back.
    NOTE: To find .edu or .gov forums just add
    Code:
    site:.edu
    or
    site:.gov
    
    at the start
    Then just fill up the keywords with a bunch of keywords and let it go. Then filter out dup domains then get domain PR.

    Good luck
