Default Advertising on Profiles

Okay, this is starting to become a problem, imho. Avatar and Signature makers are going around advertising on other people's profiles. This is against the rules of the forum, and I find it to be spam. People will come to your shops when they see that you do quality work. I also think you should enter avatar and signature contest, and have a link in your siggy. There are other ways to do this.

Thanks!

No worries, you know now. I don't know if it is considered spam by the book, but I consider it to be.

You CAN post link in your signature. You CAN NOT go to another users profile page and post messages asking them to come enter your contest. That is considered spam and personally I take it very seriously. The last thing I want is to go to my profile and see a bunch of messages asking me to join contests or to start getting contest invites in my PMs. You aren't even supposed to post messages in the open board asking people to please come to your contest thread.

Technically I don't think you're supposed to. I suppose if you know the person really well and know they won't mind, then MAYBE it would be ok. I think the rule is in place mostly to stop people from just randomly posting on people's profiles or PMing people asking them to come to contests or avvy and siggy shops.
