For user Ajay Shivaa, all of the posts made by this user has a link back to his/her website. I see that it's in the Internet and Websites section, but is this really necessary to "spam" the board like that?Originally, I thought I had warned this user weeks back but I see he has a 0% warning now. I would warn him, but by the amount of self promoting links he posted, I might as well ban the account :P

Heck, I sometimes do that, but mine's just not spam. Plus, the board rules doesn't rule that out either.xboxrulz

Are they links in his signature? Or just in the post itself? And are they purely promotional links? Or are they of the type "I'm having problem, see it here"?~Viz

Can you also link where you see this? I can't find what you're talking about.xboxrulz

With these in mind, he only has one or two posts that aren't advertising! :P

As far as I know, advertising your own web site (in some way, at least) is allowed only in the "Website Review" forum:

 

Review other people's websites here, or get your own reviewed. Remember to play nicely.

On the other hand, he is informing us of some Internet services (which he offers, though) that can be found useful by various members of the community.

 

In other words - I'm pretty puzzled :P

No you didn't he never received a warning and yes, this is spam. It's clearly spam.xboxrulz


xboxrulz1405241485

I issued him a warning. If he gets another one, I'm disabling his account.xboxrulz

Sorry guys, haven't been around too much lately.I too remember giving this guy at least a warning before (unless it was removed?).I agree that advertising in certain sections are somewhat allowed, but as you and I both saw, 95% of his posts has a link that he posted in his reply. Giving him the boot as well if I see another one of these from him...
