Rules on Posting Liks to Other Bicycle Related Forums...

Hello!

Before I go and do something that will get me in trouble, I should pose the question here...

What are the rules concerning posting a link to a Forum other than BikeForums.net? For example... if a member made a post concerning a particular frame set, and I happened to find the info the member was looking for, but it happened to be located in another Bicycle Forum... is it OK to post a link to that particular page?

I know on other Forum sites the Mods frown on that practice; I just wanted to verify if that was the case here.

Thanks!

Alan

Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

OK, the best way to deal with that is to PM the info. We really don't enjoy advertising for our competition, after all, although there are some points it's all right. Mainly, what we don't want is people who come here exclusively to spam that forums link all over our site. Use your judgement and ask yourself, "If I owned this forum, would I want this link posted for this reason?"
