    Question Still Figuring out stuff; A Little Help Please
    Hello Everyone,

    I just added signature privileges to my sign on. Can anyone direct me as to where I can add my title (instead of the word newbie?)

    Man, I guess I have to sing for my supper even in cyberspace.

    C'est la vie!

    I may be wrong but I am pretty sure that can't be changed by you. I think that is something an admin sets.

    Lightbulb Finding My Way (Just like Alex, Geddy, and Neil of Rush)
    I have no problems with admin changing my sign on, in fact I WANT them to do so.

    I have taken over managing affiliates from another guy who no longer works at Tarsus and I think, or at least I'm starting to believe, that fellow may have set a precedent (not a good one, I gather) in the affiliate forums. If that's the case I can assure everyone that things have definitely changed since his departure. It's definitely a "work in progress" (as am I), and I am merely trying to establish a presence within the affiliate community. Hope this helps.

    Inquiring minds want to know: When and how does someone spam in the forums? I know what spamming is but how is it done within the context of the affiliate forums.

    Talk to Haiko about changing your status title. Sometimes you don't have to wait for participation to change it, it's up to Haiko.

    What is spam in the context of the forum? Unpaid promotions, unpaid advertising, link drops. Many times a day posts get deleted when their only purpose is to drop a link. It's the same in any blog or forum anywhere, but it is well policed here so it's possible you haven't seen any yet. I get a warm fuzzy feeling by clicking that little red triangle to report a spam post

    Thanks 2Busy,

    Ultimately, I would like to make a difference in the forums. It took me a long while to muster up the courage and participate, solely because I had heard that one needed to be extremely competent in the field of Affiliate Marketing in order to make impressive posts.

    Maybe for others that's a piece-of-cake, but I'm the type of person who needs full disclosure and understanding in order to solve problems, so I waited until I felt comfortable enough to have something to discuss, knowledge to share, or information to learn.

    I previously signed up in May, 2008 but I have been learning what I can and cannot say and posting my thoughts only for the past three weeks. Now I'm definitely looking forward to see what happens next!!!!!

    I would suggest that you read the rules if you are unsure about what's acceptable. They are right at the top of every page. I know that a manually added signature is not acceptable, but that exceptions are made on a case by case basis, especially for Affiliate Managers. For very low advertising fees you can introduce your programs and add whatever links you have to promote them with. I'd suggest that you become fully acquainted with the layout of the forum (Click on the big "A" for a good overview) and see what others in your position have done, see what features the forum has that might benefit your business.

    I wouldn't give it a second thought. It is the quality of the information that you bring as well as your attitude that people will notice.
    Experiance isn't measured by the one or two word description under your nick.

    Hi Terri,

    I'm a little confused. When you say 'I wouldn't give it a second thought' Do you mean that I should not be concerned about the title and strictly focus on the quality of my posts?

    I was not sure if you meant that I should not be allowed to have my title adjusted. Granted it has been changed to Marketing Rep and that will work for now, so I'm somewhat content with that title. Please advise and thanks.

    Ian

    Hi Ian,
    I also suggest reading the rules carefully, and when in doubt about something, don't do it. I've been struggling myself to find a balance here with how I normally post on message boards (both personally and professionally) and how I post here to ensure that I and those whom I represent are seen well and for what we are.

    Good luck; you sound genuinely vested in reversing any ill-will the last rep for Tarsus garnered!

    Thanks Trisha,

    You are SPOT ON about your analysis. For the most part All we are doing at Tarsus is Lead Generation sprinkled with a few Sales offers. I'm in the process of promoting the network and being an asset to the affiliates that come to the business through my efforts.

    My weakest strength is that when I started out, I wanted to believe that everyone had similar ideals as myself: honesty, integrity, timeliness. But when the first few fraud affiliates, followed by the affiliates who signed up just to view our offers and compare pricing with theirs started to be more the norm, I was a bit taken aback by that.

    As I said in a previous post, this is a work in progress, I anticipate that spending at least two hours a day reading forums and responding to threads practically around the clock will eventually make someone sit up and take notice.

    Thanks again

    Ian
