Members - signatures can not contain “html banners” or “url hyperlinks” from a company that is not an advertiser on DragRaceResults.com. Advertising companies are listed in "BOLD" in our Business Directory.
This is a decision that has been made in respect to the advertisers who pay premium dollars to have their advertisements placed on this board and in turn for us to use. I am by no means singling out any one person or company in this process. I just feel it gives DragRaceResults.com the best credibility possible with our sponsors, in letting them know we appreciate their support and that they will not be competing with companies who have not paid for advertisement to provide this board for its members.
I know some of you own and operate your own businesses, have personal sponsors, etc. that you advertise for. But I have to ask you to respect this policy (race team banners excluded), if they are not an advertising company. Believe me when I say I appreciate your loyalty to this board, but I have to draw the line somewhere. Part of the reason for some of the DRR advertisers not returning in the past years is due solely to this issue. I do not want to lose any members, but I certainly don't want to lose the board that our advertisers provide for us.
You may ask why I don’t deny html or links in signatures all together and only allow special requests? Because our board does not have the ability to administer that option by member, only by group and that is everyone. Also pictures and non conflicting images and banners would also be removed and I do not want to take away personality from your posts. If you are in question about an advertiser please check our Business Directory or feel free to PM or shoot me an email.
Moderating is a tough job and some people may not be aware of this new policy. If you become aware of a member who is not conforming, please PM or shoot Nicole or I an email and We will address the member accordingly, no strings attached.
I know that pictures are an important part of our members signatures also. Please work on reducing the size of them, 150h x 300w approximately, so it does not hamper the readability of your posts. Also please remember to update your email in your personal zones if it changes.
