Confused over the rules on posting URLs
April 26, 2007 9:48am CST
I have noticed many discussion posts where myLot members are including a URL with user-name that are promoting various other programs and/or their own blogs or websites. I'm a little because I thought that this was not allowed on myLot although I've not seen anything in the rules to say you are not supposed to do it.. But I tend just to skim through the rules. Maybe somebody will have some answers on this?

If the link you're providing will contribute to the discussion you are participating in, then I don't think you're violating any rules of mylot. I think what's forbidden is to post personal referral links to other paysites. I don't know why exactly, but a lot of users have been annoyed by this.

I had been noticing it too and I am also a bit confused but most of those posts are still here. Only a few get deleted. Maybe it doesnt really matter if you will post a URL if it has got some relevance on your topic and if you will not start a topic with it.
