Some members of Electrician Talk may work for or own a company the sells tools, equipment, supplies, or other electrical related products and services. It is natural to want to advertise your product and/or services on this site. However, in order to create a community that is not continuously filtering through unwanted solicitations the administrators will enforce firm rules in regards to advertising.
What advertising is allowed?
We allow you to create a signature file found here: http://www.electriciantalk.com/profile.php?do=editsignature
This signature file can be up to four lines long and contain a link to your company, phone number, and and your namet. Text in the signature must be standard font size (2) and must not contain any questionable content or sales pitches.
Any signature file that is longer than four lines or contains large fonts will be deleted.
Once you create a signature file you are free to participate in meaningful conversation on the board. As you gain a reputation on the board you will also be advertising your company via your signature.
What type of advertising is NOT allowed?
Users who post messages that promote any products or services that they sell or provide will be deleted. Anyone who posts ads or meaningless content just to get their signature out there will have their posts deleted as well.
Users who violate these rules will also have their accounts disabled.
Last, if you have a product or service that you really want to reach the board with then you can buy a banner ad from us. Please contact us if you would like to receive more information on advertising.
