I think this should be a new rule on WI (Just updated! June 9th)
 
(I checked and didn't see a thread like this)
Well I've been seeing a lot of links in siggys to other websites. I think that's ok but when someone has a link to another Webkinz board, I think that's a bit rude since WI is a Webkinz board and you are taking away members from here. Also for Home Pages people put Webkinz related boards. I think you shouldn't be aloud to put a link to a Webkinz board UNLESS you own it. Like you made the site, and all Webkinz board websites should be banned from siggys. It's just a bit rude. It's like going to Target and putting a Wal-Mart sign up. So tell me what you think.

UPDATE
I think it would be completely fine to put in your siggy a website you own (or a staff member) OR a site that doesn't have that many members but a full fledge Webkinz board is a bit rude. I guess it could be your home page but I don't think it should be in your siggy. And of course it's super rude to put- Join my site! It's better than WI! or even Join my site! It's just as good as WI

UPDATE
I think if you have a link on the other site to WI then it's fine. :)

I think that s ok for members o advertise, i mean we get it every day. you're watching a infomercial about downy paper towels, and then when it's commercial break, you see one for bounty paper towels. to me, that's just how things work. justin/wendy don't control how many people come here and they can't control when and why people leave, for the most part. i think it's plenty fine to advertise any other site here, becuase we know wi is the best anyways. lol.

That's why I said if they own it they can advirsetise it for there home page. Well the tv is different. That's a place for advertisements but WI isn't. Like a store. Like I said, It's like putting a Wal-Mart poster in a Target store. BTW thank you for not yelling!

THAT my friends is my favorite line! :2funny:
I agree 100%! A ton of my friends on WI are making these. I have showed and expressed to them over and over again (everyone, friends or not on WI) through my profiles and PM and VM and avvies and siggies, etc, then I love WI! And yet the post VM's:

Hey! Come check out my new website about webkinz!

Uh....k? :2funny:

Great thread! REP FOR YOU!

I know what you mean. It really annoys me when people do that...they may have good intentions, but it seems like they are stealing WIs members. I agree with you, there is something about it that really irks me...

I don't really mind it but I get what your saying.
And your example was prime! It's a good rule, though.

It seems a little rude, but if someone is really faithful to
WI they will stay here, no matter what someone else has in their signature.

Spam, report it. Only place it is allowed is in a siggy...no other advertising or linking other sites.

That's true. Like I said, I think any other Web site (like to Target XD) is fine but when it's a Webkinz board I think it's rude
