This website is about a topic that I am interested in, so I thought I would join forums and put a link or 2 in my sig and discuss this topic. In reality, I put 4 links in my sig.
I read a few threads and I contributed, where I felt that I could.
One forum, I was immediately give a ban for blatant spamming.
The other forum just cancelled my account all together.
Both of these forums allow links in the sig. In both of these forums I was contributing and not just posting one line answers. I read TOS and as far as I can see, I did not break any rules.
So my question to you is:
What is the correct etiquette when posting on other forums and sigs in other forums?
