    Default Is it okay to mention another Suse forum here?

    This is a forum rule where my understanding is unclear.
    There is another Suse forum that has been started by Mattb4, it's called the Suseunbound Forums.
    If allowed I was thinking of either mentioning it to new members or as a link in my sig.
    On the latter,if allowed,am I a member considered trustworthy enough to have a link in their sig?
    Regrettably, I've read the Announcements & am not clear on this rule either.

    Of course you can mention Suseunhinged here. Sorry, smack !, I mean Suseunbound. Couldn't help it.

    And there's the opensuseUS too. And LinuxQuestions + LinuxForums both have Suse forums too. I seek help in all of them if I can't get an answer here.

    PS I'm a member of the unbound too, nice bunch.

    I'm a member of suseunbound as well, although I haven't visited for a while. I think its a good idea to broadcast linux issues to the widest possible audience to maximise your chances of getting help. I've been a member of LinuxQuestions for several years since first playing around with Red Hat. Recently joined Linux Forums too - they have several distro-specific forums.

    It is a violation of the T&C to post explicitly for the purpose of
    driving traffic to another site. While we personally sympathize with
    any forum dedicated to supporting Linux, allowing obvious exceptions
    opens the door for proponents of any site to use the forums as a
    platform to advertise their services, free or otherwise. It's an
    unfortunate situation we can blame our spammers for, and there's no way
    to easily handle the dilemma without appearing arbitrary.

    @sagemta, Keith's post has drawn me back to this thread. And I now wonder what this means that you said earlier:
    On the latter,if allowed,am I a member considered trustworthy enough to have a link in their sig?
    Regrettably, I've read the Announcements & am not clear on this rule
    I'm not aware of any trustworthiness criterion that has to be addresses before Joe Citizen can have a link in her post. Can you explain that please and direct me to the "Announcement" so I can see what you mean?

    OK then I see. That doesn't prevent any legit ppl from having links in their sig does it? Or am I missing something?

    I'd suggest you read the terms and conditions which covers advertising and
    explains what needs to be done if you want to put an advertisement link in
    your signature: http://forums.opensuse.org/faq.php?f...#faq_novellgen
