    Coupons on Message Boards
    I am considering adding a shopping section to my fairly active message board for posting merchant coupons and sales. For those of you who already do this, do you have problem with others posting their affiliate links? Do you have policies in place against this? Do you allow it?

    People can truly be so annoying. I have ONE rule for the work from home section of my message board. Before someone posts their opportunity, all they have to do is either PM me or email me and get permission. I just want to check out their site and/or opportunity and make sure it is legitimate. You wouldn't believe how many people won't follow the simplest of instructions and I am forever removing their links and posts.

    So...I am wondering if I am opening up a can of worms. I just love the $$ opportunity of offering coupons from merchants though.

    Any thoughts are appreciated!

    I would have a problem with it. I have a special section just for coupons and deals where i'm the only one who can post there. There was another thread talking about this where some other sites use some sort of script or something so when someone does that it puts your affiliate link on it. Something like that.

    Ditto...

    Those deal sections do work. Even though my forum doesn't look very active, I see the views to those posts increase...and sales happen.
