Can everyone come and check out my board located at http://smasters1.pro...1.com/index.cgi . The board is mainly for sports talk, but you can talk about anything. I hope you come, post, and become a member. I'd def love everyone's input. You don't have to be a member to post.

Your post seems irrelevant to the purposes of this board. However we are not quite as strict as Ebaum. You may get banned, though, if you post that link more than once here. :deal:

Why are you visiting this forum? Did you have a reason other than posting that link?

This is a fine point of forum manners, and everyone's rules are different. In a similar position, i've given this issue thought. My take on it is: If the board tolerates a URL in your sig, AND you are posting to some purpose associated with the board, you can probably get away with relevant mentions of your own site.

IF the board doesn't tolerate a URL in your sig, chance is pretty good any other mention of your own site is verboten as well.

Nobody wants pointless advertising much. a bit of self advertising along with a contribution is a lot easier accepted. :hmmm:
Helpers Rules (as I see 'em)
First, Do No Harm!
Second, Use Known Good (canned) Fixes when possible.
Third, Get Help From Others when not positive of your answer.
Fourth, Do Not Recommend complex procedures without verifying the skill of the user to accomplish necessary tasks.
Fifth, Specify optional removals as 'Users Choice'.
Sixth, Give Credit for info and assistance.
Last, BE POLITE. Especially when it is most difficult.
