No more signatures in warrior forum...

57 replies
Wow, it's been a while since I've been here, but I just noticed no one has a signature anymore. Crazy. probably too many people are posting stuff to get more exposure to themselves and get links instead of posting quality.

Tip to everyone: quality always wins over quantity. If you want to make money online, build quality relationships, write quality articles, etc. If you have a bunch of crap floating around the web, what is that going to do to your reputation?

Once your reputation is ruined, it takes way longer to build it back up. So stay true and offer quality, so you can build up a good reputation. Reputation is everything online (and offline).

Offer value, and you will get value in return.

    But still, my tip about quality vs. quantity still stands!

      Actually, I just haven't been here for a while, and today I came on over and I was on a thread in the main internet marketing forum and I saw a few threads and there were no signatures. The reason I was looking was because I was thinking about changing my signature because I just changed my blog from blogspot to my own domain (finally, lol!)

        Well this thread was a nice bit of signature bait if ever I saw one.

          How many minutes of your life did 5,600+ posts take since 6/2010 - that's NOT even 2 years!!! I want YOUR signature spot - it's mega-huge - hey, that reminds me - I think I paid the $60 for the image signature last week or the week before and forgot to put one there :rolleyes:

          Thanks for posting this - who knows when I would have remembered?!!

          They do a very good job about handling that on a case by case basis. It's one of the excellent things about member moderation. We as a whole can catch individuals that the "formal" moderators might never get a chance to see. It makes it so that we don't all have to lose the privilege because of a few dumbasses.

      Ah don't worry, we wouldn't do that.

      Incidentally, in your signature you have the "Master solution to winning the lottery".

      Very impressive indeed. I'm pleased for you that you've found it. May I ask why you didn't buy your own domain and hosting and put it on free Blogger blog instead?

      I just thought if I had that formula and it worked, I'd have already won the lottery. Therefore if I decided to sell the formula I'd have put a bit more effort into the sales copy, as opposed to the current four lines.

      Well done though, you must feel a million dollars waking up every Sunday to yet another lottery win.

      Good for you.

        You know, I agree with people when they say that spammers and people with s****y offers are bringing down the forum, and I get why it makes their blood boil.

        Then I see the comedic effects of dealing with them/calling them out, and it makes having them around for a few minutes almost bearable .

    After Contacting WF Help Desk. Here's Why I got.

    According to the WF staff named Thomas, my signature was disabled
    because I was accordingly making random posts just to "expose my signature"
    to the public over and over. That's is quite a big accusation to me. I AM NOT GUILTY! :p

    Personally, I did not know that my signature was disabled by the admin, for
    all I know it is me who disabled it just for the mean time.

    Since I wanted to upgrade my account, I asked him if this will solve my issue.
    The respond was I should get back to him after 1 month to reinstate my signature.

    So in conclusion, if I didn't have the idea to contact them about my signature,
    I wouldn't know for sure why I am not able to edit my signature. And There
    will be no actions about it further.

    In the end, Although WF is getting so stiff to most users, I still love the idea that
    they care for the wF environment.

    Long Live WF.

      Not a mod and haven't paid any attention to your posts previously; but if your sig is disabled then it means there was evidence to support the claims made against you. Maybe you feel you didn't break the rules. I'd bet money that you did though.

      Nope. Taking the time to read and understand the stickies at the top of the Main Forum cover everything you need to know.

      EDIT: Oh, you're just on a one liner posting binge. My mistake. Although it does reinforce the above statement about needing to read those stickies...

      I think if you are panicing that they are going to delete your sig links, well you do not have a real business.

      You should not be relying on sig links for you business, it can be one avenue and is for us, but you will find many people are going to absoulty POOP in their pants when they remove them from here, if they do, becuase lots of people are relying on them singularly to get business.

      Silly....

      Or maybe you've posted many times over .. which admin's interpretation is advertising your signature too much.

      Don't worry buddy, the knowledge you will learn from this forum is a lot better and useful than having a promotion on your signature, with those knowledge you can promote anything at any place with full control . In the end, we came here to learn right?
