Did it violate any of the signature rules? They can be found in the FAQ.

It didnt violate any from what I can tell...





edit #1:If the mod who deleted my sig could say something, that would be great. I want to get my sig back up and going ASAP but first I want to know what was wrong so I dont get another infraction.




edit #2: Going to start adding stuff back to my sig, and I REALLY dont want to get banned so please let me know if you see anything that doesnt belong.

So what was in your sig originally?? We cant give you an opinion on how appropriate/inappropiate it was unless you tell us what it was.

Selling NIB (New in box) items in your sig, or requesting that users PM you for prices on New items you are selling is prohibited. Links to NIB items you have listed in the NIB section are allowed. Links to a commercial website are also allowed.

You are offering a service which is considered "NIB" and that must either be placed in the NIB area with Gold Ups or just link it direct to your website.

(Stolen from Phantom Ghost. PM me if you don't see the differences.)

What I want to know is, why is the link in my sig any different from the link in TargetIndy's sig? His link is selling NIB items, isnt it? Why does he get to sell NIB items in his sig?

The difference is that he either is paying for Gold Ups or he is direct linking to his website.

A website with a cart system so people can purchase what you are selling.

Since there would be no thread on PbN, it wouldn't be valid for feedback.

So it needs to have a cart system? Then wouldnt the link in this users sig for instance be considered illegal too, as well as basically every other link in any anodizer/engravers sig since you really cant use a cart system?

The difference is that that is an actual website.

You're just linking to a forum, effectively avoiding the NIB forum here.

Why don't you just leave off the link from your sig until your website isn't just a link to another forum?

Eh, because I really dont want to lose that business, even though it may only be a few days. I'm guessing I have to get rid of the link ASAP? Can I add a thing on the site for now where they can email/pm me for info?

That sounds like a much better compromise.

We don't want you to start a trend on how to get around the NIB forum by just setting up a quickie website which is a link to another forum that doesn't have a strict MAP price policy. We're really trying to protect legit businesses like yourself.

Alright thanks, I'll remove the link for now and add it back in a bit when I get the site updated.
