    So far in past 1 hr, I have seen 2 people selling stuff via signatures, either they are asking to PM them or indirect advertising...

    In the past couple of days, I have seen such more people, though they know nothing, but still they call them "guru"...

    I don't want BHW to become shitty like any other IM forum which is out in which everyone is trying to sell something to others....

    Perhaps, I think they are also breaking the rules...

    ok.. um, im not sure what to say to this to be honest. besides the fact that jr vip's are allowed to do it. but for the people that aren't, they need to stop and get a 1week ban, we have a ton of members here so its hard to nail down all of them. but yes, i have seen a crapload of people selling from their sig without the jrvip,exec,mod, sup mod, or above.. i believe its against the rules.
    ill have to go back and check again.

    You are right Forgot .. I too have seen many people selling all kinds of tools and reports via sigs. I think it is against the TOS if you are trying to sell something here at BHW without having an approved Sales thread.

    Is it against the rules to have your affiliate banner in the signature without the jr. VIP, Exec, Mod, etc.?

    I have no desire of putting an affiliate banner in my signature (I don't have an affiliate banner, for that matter), but I was just pointing out the fact that while bitching about the rules, same people were breaking them.

    Oh, I didn't realize that. It says "donor" to me. Why did you remove it when it's allowed?

    As far as I know even Jr VIp can not sell via signatures if they do not have a BST. They can not use sig which asks the user to PM them to buy...

    Plus, I have seen a lot of indirect markt. in which sellers creates a buzz here....

    its because when your jrvip, you can edit waht it says.
    as it says in mine. Backlinks blah blah blah
    but if i didn't edit it, it would say it.
    i didn't remove my aff link btw, its still there, for some reason it shows, and sometimes it doesn't, i haven't quite figured it out yet. i think
    it only shows on my 1st post to any thread

    EDIT: ok i just looked and its only on a few of the post .. wierd

    your right, its not allowed to sell in the sig without a bst , even for jrvip, im not selling in mine though. :)
    but, i do also have a bst thread lol

    I've paid twice and i have 2 bst threads and i only sell stuff via sig that related to my BST in some way. But you're right, lots of people selling in signatures. Lots of new registered accounts used to use fake signatures lol, like this:

    We know the rules already, the aim of this thread to convey is that many bhw members are violating the rules and thus bhw is loosing it's potential revenue which it could have made if such rules breaker were given infractions or given temp ban.

    Turn off signatures for not paying members - the best solution.
