    and I am going to share it on BHW. One of the things I use has an affiliate program so if I want to use that link do I also need to give the option to sign up without an affiliate link?

    Well, since you are a donnor, you might have some privileges.. I'm not sure though.. but I guess you need to post them both. Anyway, when someone is sharing a nice method, the way I can return the favour back is to sign up under his aff. link. Won't affect me, and also the other guy will get to 'win'

    Yes. It is common courtesy to post the non affiliate link. If it is a common site then don't post an affiliate link. I'd have to take a look at the product, but it's more appreciated if it doesn't include the affiliate link. When you share a method, you're giving back to the forum. You're not giving back and then hoping to get something out of it by posting affiliate links. That just defeats the whole purpose behind sharing a method. Giving back.

    Be cautious of posting affiliate links on BHW. I'm assuming you probably don't want your account banned and I've heard that far to many times, not to mention the fact that BHW rules don't allow you to post affiliate links anyways.

    Here are the rules regarding affiliate links:


    "4. AFFILIATE LINKS
    Affiliate links are only allowed in the Affiliate Programs section of the forum, or in your signature. This includes links to your websites or blogs which redirect to an affiliate link. If you wish to let people know about a new website or program, create ONE thread in the Affiliate Programs forum and provide detailed info about the program and include 2 links: one affiliate link and one non-affiliate link. You MUST give them the choice to sign up under you or not. Also, do not try to avoid our rules by making a post about an affiliate program you found, where you ask people to PM you for the info. This is no different than affiliate link spam. If we are notified of any violation of these rules, your affiliate link may be removed and an infraction or ban will be given at our discretion."
