---- Ok Hotshot - So how do we adjust the moderation policy?

Not true, look at the firestorm it created. It was a little fuel on the fire so to speak. This particular discussion was about the moderation policy.
|gpilling* had made a promo-type post, which added nothing to the discussion. I think these should be disallowed. |
It also got a more useful response from @sugarrae*
The article I mentioned on her site is a really good one, similar in quality to the classic '26 steps'. It is detailed, thorough and useful to anyone in this field of work. But we can't even mention the title of it or link to it here, so no wonder that people take their toys and leave.
So, when I have something really in depth to say, I'm going to blog it, rather than post it at webmasterworld... because it's easier for me and more useful for the people who read it... that's the real danger of the current linking policy to useful and helpful information being shared here at webmasterworld.
For everyone beating the 'no self promotions' drum, have you realized that @btabke has pulled a fast one on you by putting twitter links under user's names? If twitter isn't a self-promotion vehicle, I don't know what is.
It is worth noting that @tangor has a forum in which the users can disable signature links, but he expressly recommends that they don't do it. Maybe the links are different on Barsoom.
I agree. To use another old saying 'WebmasterWorld is cutting off its nose to spite its face'
|@kaled Good businesses deal with each other in ways that are mutually beneficial - right now, Webmaster World doesn't seem to have grasped this properly. In the fight against spam (which is laudable) the site is being damaged - think "baby" and "bathwater". |
*I have never met or corresponded with sugarrae, but have read her blog and followed her endless tweets about Tim Hortons.
