TO ALL MEMBERS
As part of wanting to make the forums more user friendly again, I would like to clear up this matter once and for all about how we decide whether an external link is allowed to be posted on the forums.
Which is why I have made this posting a global announcement.
|When you are in any doubt as to whether the posting of a link to an external website will be allowed on the forums, please read the above guidelines which have been there since late November of last year.
If the external site is not your own which you are promoting or advertising, OR the owner of the website is not being intentionally or deliberately given free advertising or promotion of their products or services by you posting it on our forums, then please go ahead.
If a moderator disagrees with you about whether a particular link should be posted then we reserve the right to either remove the link itself, or if necessary the entire posting if it no longer makes any sense without the link being included.
No bad feelings, and no harm done.
