Signature Link Sales are Allowed
Several very smart NetBuilders have suggested that we ban the sale of signature links.
The arguments can be summarized as:
- Signature links motivate forum members to create low-quality posts.
This argument is undeniably true. However, the sum of reasons to allow signature link sales outweighs that argument:
- We can't stop signature links sales. If we ban them, they will simply go underground. This will create a hostile environment between the forum management and the community members.
- Disabling signatures entirely would not even be a cure-all. Members would then just sell links in posts. We would end up creating a "War on Links", which is really a waste of everyone's time.
- We want our community members to make money. For many community members, selling signature links is a good way to enhance their incomes while also contributing to the forum.
It is our job as forum moderators to keep forum spam to a minimum. Many of us have seen this fail on other forums. The solution is to have more active moderators. Banning signature link selling is the wrong solution for the problem of low-quality posts.

I swear, by my life and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine.
Thanks for the notice guys . I think we cant just place a full stop to this matter . If a buyer is interested in buying such kind of links then others must not have any problem .
Let them do what they want in GC section but we must be strict in other webmaster sections . Go to dp and check that most users those are sitting on 10k to 15k post counts are working hard in underground and GC sections lol .
I want to say that make some rules which can help both of the sides . GC users must know that they can enjoy as much as they want but only in gc section . If you want to make any reply in webmaster section then your reply must be above 10 words which don't look like spam and must be related to thread .
I also agree with you
Signature link is not for spamming here ...
