Personally I don't see anything wrong with this, as long as it is done in a respectful way. I agree that people should NOT be doing this advertising through PM's and VM's as this would get sooooo annoying!

If someone chooses to leave this site for another, it isn't anyone's fault. Everyone has different interests, and personalities. And these other sites may mesh better with them. And, personally I find that to be the most important thing. I also don't see were it would be fair to say that only owners should be able to post these in there siggy. What if I went to another site and contributed a lot there, and was proud of the work I had done as member. Shouldn't I be allowed to advertise that as well? This is all just MHO!! Thanks so much for sparking this great conversation

It does cost money to run this site and there are many people who put a lot of work into making it run well. I don't think you should just piggyback off WI with no apologies and think you're entitled to do it. In the end, it's a matter of ethics and judgement. You MAKE the call.
I think that makes since. If you really want a new Webkinz site just Google it! Just think about how you would feel if you owned a small Webkinz site and someone came up and put WI in there siggy.

When I link to a forum in my sig on here, I create a link thread on that forum linking back to WI so it really wouldn't bother me I would recommend this or something similar to anyone who links to their forum on WI

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


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!
I agree. I've seen links too really popular Webkinz Forums,that already have a million members. But if it's a Webkinz Forum that only has 10 or 11 members,that's fine. So I agree,and Rep if I can give you any!

I think it would be ok if you have a link back to WI on the other site.

Honestly, I think that if you want to out a link in your signature or maybe VM your closer friends, then it should be fine. I totally agree with jessicabarnhart.

I agree! I see people's signatures or "Visit soandso's Homepage!" in their drop-down menu, and it turns out to be a forum for Webkinz that they created. I feel like it's a huge slap in the face sometimes.

I must disagree. The reason why they let us put those things there is because they don't mind if people visit other sites. At my friend's site, she's not asking for profit. She just wants some visits.

I must admit though, the whole Wal-Mart thing is very clever
