    New/Old to PSD

    Hey guys, I'm back.

    Used to post here a lot back....a while ago.

    Minnesota sports is my thing. I cover the Minnesota Twins as a reporter and am a fan of the rest of the teams in town.

    So....uh....remember me?

    Yes, Vikings fan, I remember you. You used to be real active around the time I registered in 2008. Glad you're back with us.

    Thanks dude. I just checked -- despite not posting in over five years, I was still "averaging" 6.5 posts per day. Yikes.

    You were given notice that linking/promoting personal articles/sites wasn't allowed before you were banned, but having it in your sig was fine, and you acknowledged you understood. It wasn't just simply reporting news.

    True, after his return he began spamming his podcast in several threads. Maybe we can work out a deal with him. For each post he promotes his stuff he has to plug PSD on his podcast.

    To be fair though, and I said to whoever banned him, I know he understood what he was posting but there are quite a few PSD posters of past and current that are writers/bloggers for MLBTR, roto, fangraphs, etc and I know PSD has allowed those sites to be linked now.

    So if I would link a post from MLBTR that a PSD user wrote it'd be ok?

    To be honest, I'm not familiar with MLBTR or fangraphs. My love for baseball and basketball has diminished over the years. As for Rotoworld, I am familiar with them and it's totally fine linking them as the source. Maybe a baseball mod can answer on the other two you've mentioned.

    There's a difference between linking reliable sources and promoting other sites/forums. Sites that may lure our members away usually have forums that have the same type of community that we have here.

    Forums like Reddit and W⅁ๅɐəଧ are threats to a site like ours and promoting those forums will get users in trouble. Linking a post/article from either site is extremely prohibited.

    I usually wouldn't discuss this with you here but since we're on the subject I'll go ahead and put it out there.

    We're currently discussing a rule change, in certain cases the spamming/linking infraction might be lessoned. Most of us feel the 15 points penalty should be for posters trying to lure our members away. Promoting or linking sites like Reddit and W⅁ๅɐəଧ will get hit with 15 points.

    Promoting or linking personal sites/articles/blogs/podcast, etc. will only get 5 points. Basically, BW52 would get 5 points on his recent infraction.

    BW52, what do you think about doing some sort of exchange? A favor for a favor. What if we gave you a platform for posting on here? In return you plug/link us (PSD) on your podcast/blogs.

    To whoever it may concern: Please don't copy me on dodging the filter. W⅁ๅɐəଧ is censored for a reason and dodging the filter will likely get you in trouble. I'm only using it here as an example of what's prohibited.
