I agree with Boxtop; why not just ban signature contests? That makes sense to me, but why shouldn't users be allowed to put a vendor link in their sig just because they want it there? Someone's sig (or post) might contain a link to a vendor they have had good experiences with for the same reason it might contain a link to a tek they have had good experiences with; because they think people should know about it and it might help someone who is new to this. Frankly, some vendors have lower prices than others, and if I want to help out a vendor who has sold me good shit at a good price, then why the hell shouldn't I be able to do that? If we have vendor links in our sigs, it could possibly help newbies, it could possibly help the vendor, and who would be hurt by it? The unpopular vendors that no one is going to recommend?
Oh, and by the way, lovedem, shouldn't the NRA be paying for all the "free advertising" they get on this site because of you? What a stupid thing to say.

Read my post about 4 up.... it wouldnt matter what anno decided to ban, if anno had banned the contests instead you would be reading a post about how he should have banned links in sigs instead of the sig link contests. Either way anno looses and someone is still whining.

>why not just ban signature contests?

The fact that some vendors are "buying" the signature space with their contests has been recognized (a few months) too late by the shroomery administrators.
That?s why it wouldn?t be fair to only ban the signature contests, but we had to take futher action, namely get rid of the already gained signature advertisment space.(even at the cost of prohibiting some "legally" ment support)
And even if we would have only prohibited such contests, look at what windex wrote in his posts....

windex: Maybe and maybe not. But even if you are right that vendors would still be complaining, I wouldn't be. I don't like sig contests. And as long as users can still put info about vendors into their sigs (if it isn't a link), then this rule isn't such a big deal. But I don't like it, and I don't think it makes any sense. Serioulsy, what is the point of this rule? It would have made sense to ban sig contests, but this doesn't seem to make any sense at all.

Anno was justified in this matter, I am no longer getting involved in the BB and it is now upto 3D, Anno, and Moe to deal with these issues.

The signature issues was something that we had always discussed to deal with, simply because there is abuse and we want it to stop.

Hmm, then you will have to face the consequences.
Your signature will be edited, and if you put it back on, you will get banned.

It?s your choice.

lol dont bullshit anyone here, the fapa was another way, for YOU to get the free advertising in a round about way. and of course, your all for this new rule, as you dont see many of YOUR links in sigs, and now, your going to save $$$$ on the free filter disks............. or, since we all are link free, you going to send them to every shroomer here?????
i do agree, sig contests are shit, and i have denied entering quite a few. UNLESS i really respect the vender who is running it.
but i say fuck the venders, this aint about them. the users here are the only ones who really lost something, and again i say, if you got a problem with the venders doing something TAKE IT UP WITH THEM, leave the user's alone. now anno is even threatening banning USERS. all because he dont have the nads to actually enforce the VENDERS to do as expected. of course, the users dont pay the bills, so its easier to make them change, INSTEAD of those who are fucking up in the first place.
for those who whined until this rule was passed/enforced. do you think just because the fav venders dont have links put in satisfied customers sigs, that your going to get more sales, hahaha the venders with the most sig links, EARNED them for the most part. you dont get that many VOLUNTARY links by bad service.
and the best service will get the most sales, links or not.
In reply to:

hmmmmmmmmmmmmm wouldnt it be better to have what 10-15 venders whining, as aposed to 10-15 venders AND 1500+ users?

*** btw MM *** your sig is violating the new shroomery rules. i expect anno will want you to change it soon as possible
NOTE im sorry i was wrong on the last statement
In reply to:

4. Vendors are allowed to have a simple link to their site in their signature but no graphical advertisements.




lol i guess only the users are being punished ...unreal the ones who caused all this bullshit, arent even being made to follow the SAME rules........

But ehey, in this way considering it again, vendors do not need to lick members asses, such as some did for a long time. In that way, members profited, and there where many contests. I think only Ralph himself did over 50 of the contests. Especially those signature ones.

Now, with this new policy, the only rule is the money rule. No more good idea rules.

Anno, I think you are missing a big deal if you think that good vendor will gain customers by making this rule. Its pretty famous thing that NEW products who could be far better in giving the service have no virtual chance if they can not make any sort of campaign, even signature one.

So, the basic line is next. If you censour things, you are stoping natural flow toward healthy equilibrium. Equilibrium that would be good thing for the whole community, especially members.

BTW, I do not give a shit about these things nay more, but my 2c are here.

In nature the antelopes only reach a heathy equilibrium if the lions and hyenas are limiting their striving to spread over the whole African continent...

lol@u, in nature equilibrium is only acceived if the strongest are able to be the strongest. the weak die off. if all lions and hyena's are only allowed a "fare" share of antelope ass, then ALL lions and hyena's get thin, and die anyway. because they arent strong enough to fight off disease and predators. this of course, leads to an over popluation of antelopes ( not enough spores, or venders, which allows them to raise the prices, due to supply/demand issues)
nice try tho [me] gives anno a+ for effort

The lion eats the antelopes(or to put it the other way round, the antelopes feed the lion). . The antelopes graze the grass.

The Shroomery is the lion

OK, you are lion. I thought you are informational site made to help creating the equilibrium. At least you are presenting yourself in that light. Except this little error.
