    If someone ask what can make them money? can you tell them about your company and maybe sign them up....affiliate? or is that against the rules?

    That is a very tricky subject indeed. Often the line between "helping" someone and advertising your product or service publicly without paying to have it placed in the Buy/Sell/Trade section becomes very blurred.

    For the definitive answer on that, you would need to hear it from an Administrator, such as HaRRo or Pofecker.

    I have found it much more personal and effective to take this as an opportunity to send a nice PM rather than posting an affiliate link in the thread.

    If someone is asking for the information then they should be open to you contacting them. :)

    Most people who ask that want to be spoon fed.

    You want to be very careful, so I would await confirmation from one of the admins. Do not want to tell you something they later may backfire, sorry :)

    If someone helps me out, then I don't have a problem with signing up under them. Usually though they have helped me quite a bit so I feel like I should.
