    Why certain members comment and participate in posts so far only to show their banner? I think it is very invasive/bad thing. Do not you have any help writing phrases like "good method" or "thank you for sharing."


    According to me it's just a gimmick to advertise their business but without giving a hand to the forum and its users.


    What do you think?

    Well.. the world is not a perfect place. That's why there's AdBlock Plus. Either way, some are quite helpful, compared to those telling you to use the search function.

    Listen it all depends on the response and or OP. If the there is a couple of word answer or just a thank you response then thats that, but most of the people here actually do help :)

    I don't see anything wrong because a forum is used for promotion nd sharing stuff but that's why you pay to get your signatures with banners...

    Coming from a man who made 6 posts mentioning "Thanks" and similar in the past 3 days. So now do you belong to that group?

    Anyway, It is NOT always about increasing post count/advertising. A bit of appreciation is always a good thing. Assume you shared a killer method and you received 0 appreciation and 0 replies, you care to share anything on the forum?

    Okay is clear. You are all of the same opinion. I did not mean to raise a fuss but compare my ideas. And obviously they are very different from yours :)

    I am opposing your statement saying that people need not post if there is nothing to give back to the forum and its users.

    Looking at your post history, it looks like you do what you're complaining about. A lot of wow|great share|thanks from you and not much helping of others. I'm guessing Argan Records isn't your brand then, because that would be a little too hypocritical.

    This is a business forum first and foremost, people are here to make money, run a business, show ads in their signature(especially if they got paid for it).. If you want to learn, search here, search the search engines, search wikipedia, ask people directly, go to school.

    Sellers do not owe their information to anyone, and it is by their generosity that they return any help they've received learning from others, not because that's "how it is" or that they are obliged to.

    You're trying to stifle competition. You're not concerned about the people more than the sellers, but do pretend to. It looks like you don't like seeing the possibility of someone else succeeding. It is up to moderators to define what is spamming or a useless post and what is not.

    In the end, who cares|why does it matter|who does it hurt|who does it force to do anything|what does it take away from you?

    Those kinds of people, the ones who just post randomly to get their ads around, have always been around, and that's called marketing. They are not the ones who bring down quality, because they weren't helping beforehand anyway.

    For me who say thanks to mailing list method how can two minutes later say thanks to PPC method? This person goes in posts to say thanks for one reason.
