    Earlier when I used to place a signature which even had a hint of advertisement, it got removed.. okay I understand...

    but when I became a donor, i assumed that I would be able to advertise my product/service using a link in the signature, as also stated in the donor payment page

    Code:
    As a reward for your donation you'll receive a LARGER PM box (Over 500 PM Capacity), the ability to use links in your signature (for advertising)
    But today I see that my sig was changed to, Selling product/service through signature requires mod's approval... I was advertising my product, which was allowed by you guys. And its not that I wanna hide anything or am trying to scam anyone, I even applied for a BST to sell my product with a BHW discount, but didnt get any response, I understand you must be getting thousands of BST applications and it takes time. So for the time being I thought of placing the link in my signature.

    Its my humble request to please allow it, as most of us here are not owners of big corps and just trying to make a living online . Hope you understand :)

    I mean no offence to anyone, so I apologize if anyone was offended

    If you are selling a product or service, then you must have that service or product already in the bst threads. therefore it must be approved already. otherwise, you are also allowed to advertise affiliate links, but nothing more than that.

    this was nowhere mentioned in the donor page :( ... only ADVERTISING was mentioned, I had no idea we cant advertise anything which is outside the forum (except another forum) ...

    you can have affiliate stuff in your sig but you can't have products you own/promoting unless it's an approved by a mod/admin.

    To clarify, do you mean we're allowed to advertise affiliate-related products but not services which we'll be providing to the BHW forum? I can't quite discern the difference between what is allowed and what isn't. :eek:

    Are you looking for affs or are you selling something to people on BHW?
    Perhaps you can just get your product approved.

    adsense assassin is one of the most shittiest products i have ever read, you should be glad that it is on the do not share lost, otherwise i would have already shared it here.

    but seriously, 99% of the information is 100% shit.

    and the 1% are maybe the content i did not read because i had enough from the main pdf.

    That is pretty rude to say to a fellow member. Even if the information is sub par to what you know already maybe you shouldn't be sitting here flaming and out there making money. FFS

    He worded it rudely but at least he spoke his mind. I'd rather have people voicing their negative opinions than have a bunch of folks who either post positive reviews or stay silent.

    After taking a look at the donor page, I would say it doesn't clarify very well..and it very misleading. That needs to be updated ASAP.

    The ones MOD post in this thread didn't even make sense.

    There's my honest thoughts.

    ok.. so you guys aren't thinking very clear are you ?

    one way around it, sign up for your own service/product as an affiliate

    post THAT link. not the direct link.

    problem solved
