Anti spam measure to stop new members posting a couple of threads, spamming their signatures and then vanishing..

And as yours appears to be spamming some kind of replica handbag crap shop it will never appear, in fact I'm not going to ban you immediately, seeing as it's christmas time and all that, but I will remove it from your profile and if you see fit to add it back, then I will ban you.

Cheers and a merry christmas to you.


/oh, and your homepage link won't work either and that too will be removed

You need to acumulate time and posts, legitimate post, to be able to show your signature.

because the amount of spam on this forum got out of control to say the least and it got to the point where the only real option was having noob users (like you) prove that they're worth the risk of allowing anything you could stuff a clickable link into.

so, to review, the reason is, you had your chance, you blew it, for everyone.

I hate everyone, so you don't have to.

Sorry, but because the spam filter works so incredibly well for us, we'll likely leave it that way.

Hello, I have read all posts on this forum about signatuers and I do not understand why you are so hostile with people that are just asking how they can show their signature to get a backlink to their site when posting here.

If you guys do not want to get spammed for seo purposes why dont' you just put nofollow to the signatures so that nobody will ever come here just to get backlinks.

Anyway, I want to show my signature as well. And yes, I registered today. There's no problem with having no signature for a while (biggest number i have ever seen is 50 posts on v7n forums) but I think that would be advisable to decide how many posts you need or what rank you need to show your signature.

I am saying this because when you come from the outside and read posts about signatures on this forums, it really looks like old members want to keep signatures only for them, flamig newbies for wanting that as well, and willing to keep the signature clan closed to new members.

It seems that you are deciding case to case whether to give or not sig right to users. And seems like you are basing your decision on whether you like or not what the user is writing in their posts. There shall be a minimum amount of posts or rank to achieve to get sig rights. And it shall be the same for everybody.

Also, why do you give for granted that someone asking why they can't see the sig is here just for spamming? As a new member you can set up your sig but then it doesnt show. And you are not warned about it, anywhere. I think it's pretty normal that someone might think it is a techical problem.

I hope nobody get offended for what's just my opinion, and I do not mean to offend any admin of this forum. Also I know already that my english is bad so please don't mention it.

Have a nice day.

Orange.

Given that your signature is encouraging people to 'buy web traffic' I don't exactly think you have a lot of room to complain of our signature rules.

It'll never show up for you, you have my word on that , oh and don't change it back either, theres a good fella.

Where did you take the right to judge what i am promoting?

Dear Mr. Jones, dont think you know everything, becasue you do not. I wrote a very polite posts and you answer with hostility.

Your word? There are million of ways to spam your forum with thousands of accounts, no matter what your word is.

I am not changing the sig do not worry. You can ban this account for disagreeing with you. Or for having a link to a site that you do not like.

You are ruling this forum like a nazist would.

Now take my word: I am coming back, I will make another account no matter if you ban my ip, I will make useful posts and get signature rights letting you think i like your community. Then I will keep posting to get as many backlinks as possible. And you will never even know it's me. But I will know and I will sure rofl at you.

You know what? Probably 99% of your old members are already doing that.

Next time learn politeness before crashing your head on the keyboard. And learn to read posts as well because you clearly did not read my post but obviously jumped to check my sig link.

I was pointing out the site rules that you agreed to when you signed up.

In case you missed them, here they are again.
http://forums.winamp.com/rules.php

First item on there.
Quote:
Advertising
- Advertising or soliciting other members to buy, sell or peruse any products or services through this discussion forum is not permitted. Chain letters and junk mail are also strictly prohibited. Topics/posts that contain this will be both edited and locked.
Are you telling me that 'buy web traffic' is not advertising or soliciting members to buy sell or peruse products and services?

But by all means carry on, sign up a new account make usefull posts and the firs time your signature for 'handy traffic' pops up, either myself or one of the many other moderators on here will sort it out for you ;-)

Yeah, sure, because after this conversation i will surely keep promoting the same site.

I will definitively not use another site i'm affiliate to.

Nono I will keep the same url and let your personal police spot me.

Keep dreaming.

Im not coming back to check your answers. For now.

I love the fact you are taking the time to argue that you appear to be in the right and that the fact we enforce a 'no spam' policy on here, which you agreed to when signing up, is wrong.

Anyhow, crack on, I'm done arguing the point, although it is a pleasant change to have a spammer answer back, certainly beats most of the bots we get on here on a daily basis, they are so impolite and hardly ever provide any decent sport.

I'll leave it to the other members of the forums to continue pointing out the holes in your arguments, who ,I'm almost sure, will point it out in much blunter ways than I would ever likely do.

Cheers!

You bring up a good point here. It can come as a surprise when the sig doesn't work. If I knew how and had the ability to fix the site to address this concern, I would, but I'm just a regular member.

However, I must say we really do take a strong stand against advertising. I've been on this forum for years, and if I posted spam (a.k.a. advertising) either in my post or sig, the other members here would likely hate my spamming just as much as they hate yours.

I think I speak for a lot of members in saying we really don't hate you (being new we don't even know you yet), we just hate attempts at advertising on these forums. One of the reasons most of our posting members have been around for so many years is that these boards are good at preventing several types of spam.

It really doesn't matter who it is (you, me, or anyone else). People who break forum rules will very likely have action taken to correct the problem. Our mods are pretty aggressive and fast with this kind of thing, and for good reason.

If that's the sort of thing that gives you pride and entertainment, then I think there are some deep-rooted issues that you should really consider assessing. Sig censorship is the least of your worries by comparison. Read your post as if you were on the other side of the discussion - someone who has been around a place for a long time, reading what you wrote. The more assertive people around here will likely call that pathetic; and personally, I feel sad that there are people out there that have to resort to such a thing just to feel good about themselves. Look in the mirror and ask yourself, "Isn't there something better I can do, or is this really all I am?"

Anyway, Hi Pixie!

Don't forget to live before you die.
