      Little rant... Its getting tiresome of comming on here, and checking new posts, only to find someone selling services... I thought the topics were for help and discussion and not a marketplace. It reminds me of opening a magazine to have all those little cards fall out...

      My 2 cents..

      Re: Shlepping Wares....

      Agreed. The Mechanical Design Forum is first and foremost a technical resource for its members!

      I will confirm the terms officially next time update the forum rules but basically this is what's acceptable and what's not acceptable:

      1) it is only acceptable to self-promote within the "pop in and say hello!" forum, and this is only acceptable in a single introductory post (ie. no repeated promoting).

      2) It is acceptable for anyone to use their company logo or branding in their avatar.

      3) It is acceptable to use signatures to promote company or services offered. Links to company website are permitted.

      Good Start! I may add, a limitation to lines on a signature if it isnt there already.

      Currently max signature length is 200 characters. Up to 5 hyperlinks are allowed.
