Can we use our signature space for paid advertising?

Just think of the personal revenue it'd generate!

Why and/or why not?

(yes, I was dropped alot as a baby)

Let's say I made a deal with Carl's Eel Face Soup company. They pay me cash, I wear their logo in my sig. space.

Cha-ching!

the short answer is no.

the longer answer is no, unless you get permission from the owners.

Just the thought makes me want to

I will pass thanks
Although it looks like you have gone ahead and advertised it anyway.

Now I'm not good at math but I've posted @15,000 posts. 2/3rds of them were trashed by mods because I wrote something silly.

That leaves. . . um. . . 73 posts still up.

That's 73 posts that could be used by advertising.

I know the real answer is a definitive, resounding "NO".

And I'm cool with that.

Just wondering why less scrupulous sites haven't done it.

You should just give your sig space to the site's 3rd party advertising.

Maybe the owners will give you a cut

I was wondering about that Beez during the Regents debacle..... I always thought it impolite to ask however..

(Your ad here)

However, I don't think paid adverts for things in our sigs would be a good idea, there's not enough space anyhow, cramming an ad in there would just take away prime quotong space........ (Space.com the place to be)

Wouldn't that mean "getting paid to post"?

Obama just sent me an email requesting to use my sig space to advertise for his 2016 campaign, after he heard about your idea.

See why it's a bad idea?

Actually, the advertising metrics would need to be based off your surfing habits. While the server traffic would be sublime for ATS, there'd really be no owner control over WHAT was being advertised. Remember, we are family friendly here.

Multiply uncontrolled ads floating around by the average of 400 members logged online at any given time, and the lack of ability of the staff to edit your sig space, well, it becomes a logistical nightmare.

I'm sure ownership has other reasons, as well.

There are some things in the universe that should never be shown.

Aside from the reasons already provided as to why not -- the best reason is, no one would buy it.

Why?

Thank you for your reply.

Since your avatar scares me so much, I won't ask again and will hide under a table until the shakes are gone.

Not only did you smack the idea away, but you did it with logic.

What a buzzkill.
