    We do have a forum entitled "Equipment & Services" where you can post about equipment or services for sale that is relevant to our community. But, that is the limit of the advertising that we allow on the site. Thank you.

    Hi ruttmaster Driving members away to another site is not good business ethics .

    That basically is why if you need info - do some intetrnet searching ( Browser ) what ever search engine you use it is kind to follow guidelines of any their sites Rules .

    Wouldn't allowing a link to a homepage in the profile page solve the problem?

    It is still considered spamming to put commercial links on the Profile page, or to include them as your signature, embed them into your posts, or to post them in Visitor Messages (on either your own or other members' profiles). We also ban those who register a commercial name or URL as a user name.

    Hi the reason your having alot of trouble with spammers is people selling edu website links and list with site:.edu "register.php"
    if you enter that into google yours is 4th spot out of over 2 million results.
    which will explain the high rise in spam

    Thought id message and let you know not sure how you can solve it other than closing registrations il look into it and see if the is away to hide it
