Default Just a suggestion..

Hello, I am here to suggest something.. I think much better to allow the member to put their signature.. Of course to make this forum more active and to let other member being active to post their ideas and reviews.. As we all know, forum commenting is one of the best way to get traffic, and of course to help the members promote their businesses. Well it's just my suggestion, coz I am an active member here and I noticed that few are not posting anymore..

Thanks and have a nice day..

Thanks for the suggestion Kate but again, that runs against the purpose of this forum. There are tens of thousands of other forums that do support sigs, so it baffles and frustrates me no end that people can't seem to accept that the owner of this website doesn't want to allow them due to rampant abuse (including SEO spammers posting in the "death announcement" thread of one of our most beloved former members). the types of members who leave because we don't support sigs are not the target audience for this forum.

We target professional, full-time web publishers and media players who understand that building relationships with similar professionals is 1000s of times more effective than gathering a few clicks and a miniscule SEO boost from inbound links on forums. Sig-seekers would be able to make more effective use of their time on other discussion boards.

I hope you understand as, as mentioned the last dozen times this issue has been raised, I really, really, really hope this is the last time I'm asked to justify a perfectly reasonable and personal decision made on my own website. Others can run their sites as they see fit and I simply ask for the same level of respect for how I want to run this site and spend my time as the one who is tasked with deleting spam and moderating the influx of SEO-driven posts that contribute nothing of value to the community. Those who appreciate this point of difference will stick around and those who don't, won't. It's as simple as that.

Hi Kate,

Just to clarify, do you mean that you're employed at a CPA network and would like to promote the network as a whole to members, or are you looking to promote individual CPA programs via referral links and the like?

Thanks,
