    I understand exactly what your saying, but I figure if I'm going to be posting, I might as well be promoting my website. I don't feel like having a few links in my signature is making anyone else have a more difficult time on the site.

    hi gblack, thanks for your contribution - u are right there is no harm in it and ur entitled to do so - like ive always said i guess its down to a personal preference and what you want to get out of ur time whilst spent on this forum

    So, did we ever get to a conclusion of whether signature links are justified?

    there are alot of mixed opinions on this one and lots of points u have to take into consideration, i think there is no right or wrong answer its down to the individual to make their own conclusion on it, personally i think in some cases its ok, but again i still dont agree with self promotion in links but there are some cases which weve seen throughout this thread that makes me think twice - but there is one thing i am sure of - i wouldnt self promote in my signature

    So what about self-promotion in general then?

    Like say, would you keep call-cards on you when you go out liming or describe to new people you meet what you do for work?

    firstly, of course i agree with promoting your business through appropriate mediums and at appropriate times

    i never keep call cards / business cards on me *if thats what u mean* and i rarely meet new people but i would say what i did for a living if i was asked but i wouldnt go into detail cause i wouldnt really know them properly and if on the rare occasion i am out socialising i wouldnt be talking business i would just be having fun and having a laugh

    In general - yes.

    But when you go liming - no. When you go to a conference of your profession - yes.

    Sure, I have the typical signature of a spammer.. well, but I post mostly to help others, so I don't care really what people think of my signature :-)
    I joined because I wanted to participate in a community of webmasters because computing is a passion, and I like little challenges such as helping others find out what the solution to their computing problem is.. NOW it's also my livelyhood, but computing started as a passion when I was 11 long before I needed to earn money to live!
    And the fact is I use my signature in webmaster forums to promote sites I have intended for other webmasters. I'm sure several members of sitepoint became members of my site since the time I participate on the forums and thanks to my signature. :-)

    @mizwizzy I don't mind you not clicking my signature, but I least I put it on display so others can click on it if they wish, that's what signatures on forums are for, seriously :-)

    To be honest... I don't know if I should delete this post or pm you... I would say to you that you may want to see the links in my signature instead... they talk about guidelines and fluff and how you can be penalised for them

    See Mizwizzy? Signatures are more that just promotion... sometimes they even have some use!

    Hey Miz... but it is true... there's nothing wrong with having sigs... the wrong thing is spamming members!
