    What am I NOT allowed to post within my signature?

    Can I post a link of websites and/or domains I have for sale?

    Really do not want to get another infraction..

    Oh, and I met a girl... Just thought I'd share that ;)

    Let me guess, the girl you met is an "SEO Babe" that's making you money?

    I don't want to sound mean but what more is it you would like to know?
    Yes you can post your website, for as long it ain't virus on it.

    This is an excerpt from our Forum Rules:

    5. SIGNATURES.

    You must be a member of the forum for 30 days and have 50 quality posts
    before you will be allowed to use a signature on this forum. In order to use
    links or images in your signature, you must be a "Donor." You may post 2-3
    affiliate links or 1 banner (728x90 pixels max) in your signature. Do not use
    a font size larger than 2, crazy fonts/colors, sound clips, excessive smileys,
    or anything else annoying. Including calls to action such as "PM me"

    Okey now I feel stupid telling OP to read the rules, but I got a question popt up as well..

    What's the reason behind not being allowed to include "PM me" in the signature?
    Where does the line go? I can link to a thread with my contact details but not leave my contact details in the signature?
    Does this include checkout forms and opt-in forms?

    I've also seen people having banner AND links in their signatures, is that allowed? The rules says no.

    OP, Wiz cleared your bigger doubts, now you can clear your still bigger doubts :)... about the girl you met: how you met her? who, what, where is she? when will you more than see her? -- is this only a flirt or is she serious? are you? ...but all about that in another thread :).


    You needed the push from the forum to talk about it, so here is the push. Now go ahead and... talk! lol

    A linked banner is allowed, but you cannot have BOTH a linked
    banner and a text link. You can have one or the other. If you
    see someone using BOTH, please report it. It is against our rules.

    The Signature link takes to a webpage where everything, all conditions about the business, is out there in the open, and the forum moderators and everyone else can see it. PM takes you to a closed personal meeting platform where there is every scope to dupe/scam you, and as the PM system doesn't give everyone else to keep vigil on what's happening, it is not recommended at the beginning of any (forum) business. Once you both get more known to each other, you may use PM for your ongoing business.

    The Signature space is there for a purpose: to get exposure to a business webpage, and that space needs to be within control of the forum owner, admin, and moderators -- it's not there as any Jr VIP or higher-ups' personal property in a sense that they can use it to call others to open private one-on-one business or otherwise channels.

    It's my personal opinion, and that's the best way I can tell you about it. In short: The link in Signature space needs to be open for scrutiny by forum authorities AT ALL TIMES, and a "PM me" link can never be that. The rule is there for our own safety, that "our safety" includes all members' safety.

    Of course you don't qualify for it... read: You need to be a DONOR...

    You have to be a PAID member. . . Either a DONOR or a Jr. VIP.
    You are not qualified to have a Signature, since you are neither.

    If you have under 100 post points, you can pay $97 to become a DONOR.
    By doing so, you will be allowed to have a signature with a banner or with
    text links and a larger capacity PM inbox. However, some people make the
    mistake of thinking that after they have become a DONOR and have reached
    100 post points, they will automatically be upgraded to Jr. VIP. That is NOT
    correct. You would have to pay ANOTHER $97 for the Jr. VIP upgrade. The
    advantage of becoming a DONOR (pink name) is that you will have a larger
    capacity PM inbox and you can have a signature.

    If you wish to wait until you have reached 100 post points, you can pay
    $97 and go straight into Jr. VIP status.
