You may also advertise off-site links in "your homepage" (one of the options that comes up when someone clicks your username).

Thanks for posting!
Its always great to remind people of this rule.




I wanted to add to this.
Like the others said, its okay for onsite links.
However, it is always nice and forum rule not to spam of any sort.
So even advertising your house thread on every post can be ruled as spam and isn't allowed.
But posting links to your friends is allowed.
They are your friends after all and would LOVE to see your hard work.
But again, if you really want them to see your house thread, its probably not a good idea to VM them back every day asking them to visit.

I just wanted to add that little note.
Its perfectly fine to VM your friends on-site links or post links in threads of the same topic.
Really? I always thought you were not allowed to post links to people's profiles unless they asked for it (if on a VM list, that is OK). As it is "advertising" and you could just add a link to your siggie instead...

Default Re: Reminder about Links

From what I've seen here on WI, people have left VM links to their house threads, birthday threads, club invites, etc., and that seems to have been allowed. I think as long as they don't keep pestering people about it, if that person chooses not to respond, then it's not really an issue.
I could be wrong though.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe there is a definite rule on this.
The posting of links falls under many rules, but posting links on another profile does not have its own rule.
I don't think its considered advertising if the link is in a VM/PM or in your signature.
Those are the only places posting unrelated links are okay.
However, when posting links on profile you'll want to make sure you aren't harassing anyone.
Such as posting "VISIT MY HOUSE THREAD> NOW!!!!" every single day.
It then turns into spam and lots of other things.
And if someone doesn't like VMs you should honor that and not post a link.

So I don't believe its against the rules.
Its more or less the way you go about posting them that is against the rules.

I'm glad you did!
I would LOVE an answer on this as well.
Its an incredibly complicated topic.


But what I meant was I feel like posting "HELLO PLEASE VISIT MY HOUSE THREAD." Or "I SEE YOU'RE FRIENDS WITH JOE... COME WISH HIM A HAPPY BIRTHDAY" isn't against the rules.
But posting something like... "HELLO PLEASE VISIT MY HOUSE THREAD." then posting again "PLEASE COMMENT!" Then posting again another say "PLEASE VISIT MY HOUSE THREAD." Like repeatedly posting the same link is against the rules because it would be considered spam and is a little bit rude if you're not interested in the House Thread.
If that makes more sense.

Sometimes, I think that things may fall into a category of 'it's not a problem until it's a problem'. lol
Again, I could be wrong. xD

Default Re: Reminder about Links

I totally agree. I think I've seen a certain website in tags in at least 7 or 8 WNTM threads, which is not allowed. And, people post links on their profiles. I understand if, like with the Googles Club, there is another website for that club. But, for people to be just posting links to random websites is not allowed. I agree with MeWuvKitties on this as well, if you see a link on a post or in a tag, report it/red flag it so that a moderator can remove it.

That's true. (:
But if you mention a site when you're talking to someone and they're like, "What's that?" You could give them the link on their profile. Correct?

Default Re: Reminder about Links

It is best is when VMing or PMing a link the person has asked for it. If not you risk being reported for spam.

I think that if you want to PM friends of a birthday person that you have made a post for it is probably okay within reason.

For the most part, if in doubt, then just don't do it. Better safe than spam.
