    Question: Rule against affiliate Links.

    Is there one?


    Let me get started, I love this site.
    I would not want to lose our integrity and lose the
    Community that we have. But, is there a way to have members
    profit by making good suggestions. Could there be a separate
    Category called "member vendors".

    I am not here to make money, nor have I ever promoted
    anything here. If Bobby posts some great videos and people like his
    points about something then should he be able to profit from
    the referral?

    I do not know if this could be I implemented and not flood
    the forum. But what if affiliate links were Only allowed in
    Member Vendor section and each member had their own thread,
    could think of a store of links

    I don't think this would work either.

    Is it even worth talking about, or even discussing?
    I am not sure. I wouldn't want to lose the feeling of HF.

    But how many would deal through Shug?
    Make him some money. Is that right?

    I would imagine that the owners and mods would not
    want the trouble that this would make. Th:e moderating
    duties would be horrible. But, what if we create a system that
    takes very little maintaining?

    I don't know that I have That answer. I am just posing a question.

    What if it was another feature of Donating Member?
    Could it be visible to all members?

    This question will be very malreceived.

    Ok, I think I understand what your are asking.

    You are purposing that each member is able to have links to vendors where people can buy things and the member whose link you click on gets a small amount of the sale, a referral fee in essence.

    I don't think that it is necessary as most all vendors have a presence on the forums already. Because of this I doubt that it would be feasible for any of the vendors here to do such a thing as it would cut into what I imagine are fairly slim profit margins as is. I know that several of our cottage manufacturers actually have full time jobs as well as their businesses to run.

    I would imagine this to be a fine idea in a larger/more broad community where there were more vendors than people could search through, but we are still quite a niche group.

    Seems like you answered your own question.

    It is how link farms operate.



    Now if the idea were that everyone starts walking through the woods covered in sponsor patches so that we look like NASCAR drivers with a backpack instead of a car then it might be a different story.
