I have received some comments, and noticed personally, that advertisements are starting to appear in parts of CoinTalk that weren't meant for advertisements. I do believe that I've bent over backwards to freely give members of CoinTalk places to advertise their coin collecting related services, coins for sale, want lists, etc... and while some of you may not like new rules, I believe it is something that needs to be snipped in the bud. Going forward, we will not allow advertisements in Avatars, in your Custom User Title, in your Location, or in any area outside of the designated Advertising Section. The only (qualified) exception to that rule is how you can use your signature. We have allowed, or even encouraged, people to put a link to their own website or their own Ebay auctions in the signature. This will not change. You may still link to a website or page that you own, or that of your employer, or your Ebay auction page. I'd like to mention too, about the signatures, please keep them tasteful. Nobody wants to see garish flashing or bright colors, or sales pitches, or other types of enticements in the signatures. Thanks!
