    If random people can come and post stuff at it, you can't link to it here.

    Okay?

    Now, if THAT isn't the very epitome of simple, I don't know what is.

    She means advertising forums.If you can post at the link the thread starter linked to then it's a forum(or other non website things).And forum links aren't allowed here.

    The purpose of this thread is to try to make it clear for even the most dim-witted members that they can not link to their forums, RPGs or whatever here.

    It's fine in sigs, just not posting it in here.

    I'm just curious, but why can't we post forums? Just wondering.
    Banner over 46800 pixels and your signature was out of date (not against the rules), so the entire sig was fed to hungry Eevees. Read the signature rules.

    All I'm going to say is this is a forum, and it is not general practice to put links to other forums on your forum anyway (in most cases)

    It would be like nintendo putting ads for sony playstations on the gamecube, you just don't do it.

    As well as not promoting other forums on a forum (except in sigs) being a standard rule, anyone can take a stroll down to invisionfree.net and create a forum in a fraction of a second.

    It takes more effort to make a site, for one thing. And people randmoly chatting isn't really useful information that people want...

    A succesful forum is also alot of work, don't dismiss it like that.

    3.Macros

    It's not allowed not because forums are easy to make, but because they might remove members from this very forum.

    There is only one purpose in linking to a forum here: advertising to get more members.

    Meanwhile, when you link to a website here, you can receive comments and criticism, people can point out bugs, etc. It has a point. People with real websites would have a very hard time if all their threads were drowned in blatant forum advertisements.

    It's very difficult to "criticize" a forum. Yeah, you can criticize the forum banner, but then just go to Fan Art and have it criticized there. Because the content of the forum is not created by you - it's created by every registered member - you can't just go "Oh, fix this member's spelling" or "This member is wrong when he says this".

    That was perfect. But no one is giving comments to my site...

    I'm sounding really n00bish saying this but are we allowed to post sites that link to a forum somewhere in the site?

    Actually, you're not allowed to link to a site with a forum if the forum is pretty mcuh the only content on the site.

    So this is basically outruling Guestbooks, Wikis, Oekakis, Forums, and RPGs.

    I see.

    What about refferel sites?

    Like, www.url.comu=namehere

    bassically a free site thats based on points, if i get people to sign up under me i get points.

    The site also has a forum but the main purpose of the site is to get points and prizes.

    The way to get points is to do polls, read news articles, do trivia, invite other members, etc.

    What if you actually CREATED the forum code and not just used a pre-made template to set it up?

    Then it would make sense since you can show/get help for the mechanisms you used in its design... =/

    That's very rare indeed. I suppose that would be an exception... Dragon/Butterfree's the boss though.

    I'm not talking about something like: "hey this is my forum come visit it and join in" more like "Hey I'm DEVELOPING a forum TOOL from scratch, check it out" that's way different than grabbing vbulleting or any other of the 1000's of forum tools out there and SET UP a forum.

    Anyone with a limited knowledge about software can set up a forum using one of these tools, create the actual tool is a different story...

    Rather than advertising the content of a forum that case is more like showing a forum tool you created, the same thing as showing a web page IMHO.
