    I put a lot of hard work into my Facebook Live Reactions script. Those who seen it yesterday seen how epic it was and were asking me to share.

    Now, yes I did put a small affiliate link on the setup page on Github for Digital Ocean. But seriously that's the reason for removal?!

    Don't you think that it's a tiny price to pay for a free script that does what no other scripts out there can? I'm sharing it for free! The user doesn't have to use Digital Ocean ... and if they do what's the problem they get $10 free.

    I find that a joke to be honest. I will not share anything here again because it's obviously not welcomed. I'm one of the cool guys around here and people find my shit helpful.

    This script is worth some $$$ ... yet I chose to give it to the community.

    Forget it. It's the communities loss not mine. Blame the moderators who are moaning over a silly affiliate link to Digital Ocean. I will not remove that.

    Moderators are very lame sometimes.

    Power gets to their head.

    I don't even care, but just playing devils advocate.

    If what OP says is true, shouldn't every single link that contains some kind of revenue generation (ads) be removed?

    If you see it report it and a Mod will look it over.

    I share tons of stuff here, and have for years, and never advertised using an affiliate link.

    Never.

    As have tons of other people.

    if the rules that you're saying is absolute, then delete the thread.
    why other people are whitelisted from the rules?

    No sense getting upset with BassTrackerBoats.

    But there is a good point in the thread about some threads having special privileges and OP getting smashed.

    My guess is that it had to do with greed and over saturation... you're right Bryan.

    Because rules are rules. If the mods cut everyone some slack, most of the threads would be garbage, intended to only make profit via affiliate links and no one wants that. The forum already has a lot of retards doing that on a daily basis, as if we are too stupid not to see through it (most of us anyway).

    That's exactly the reason why you are allowed to post affiliate links as long as you also post the non-affiliate link versions and state that clearly in the post. If people find your information valuable, they will click the links (affiliate ones). You don't have to force it. It's the general rule of marketing: the more value you create, the higher your profits will be. You don't have to be sneaky about it, that will only kill your credibility.

    On the contrary there's the possibility that there would be more quality threads and shares if the people who were contributing, had the incentive to do so, as in they would make some cash from it...

    For example, BHW has burnt bridges with OP. He will most likely never contribute anything significant again, and with good reason.

    But yes ultimately people should be sharing without wanting anything back. I mean, how did they learn in the first place? Free shares and free knowledge.

    However not everyone is interested in altruism. People want to be paid for their efforts and that's okay too.

    Did you even read my post? You can make money from your threads via affiliate links as long as:

    1) You create value for the community members.
    2) You play by the rules.

    Obviously, OP missed the 2nd point.

    Then they can buy Jr Vip, apply for a marketplace thread and then sell their products or services.

    That is how this site operates.

    Again, though, I promise you I have shared 100 ideas, methods or other posts that would help others and not asked for or expected a dime as that is the way this site works.

    And I sure would not be upset if a thread was deleted if I broke a rule.

    I didn't get a chance to take a look at what he posted but I saw the video he posted earlier so I just made it myself.
    Please no one PM me, I'm not selling or giving it away.
