"Must have 30 or more members a day active on line and so many posts per day before you can even affiliate with us."
To me this kind of alienates new sites like mine that are trying to get off the ground. Yet in their same advertisement sections with link backs and such, there are no requirements.
What I want to know and understand from role play site owners, is why such a strict ruling on affiliations? I don't see many sites that can achieve this sort of thing right away. If you don't have such rules for advertisement, then why restrict the affiliations in this manner?
I agree. I've started out many of sites hoping to affiliate with a much more well off site so that I can hook members but the affiliation and ad rules that limit others like this sort of repel me from being able to post.
I only require that my website affiliates have the proper size banner so that the forum isn't stretched but other than that I don't limit according to the website's activity.
BUT, I can understand why they do it. Advertising in plug boards has gotten out of hand lately. Many new sites get eaten up in other websites ads and it sucks but there is no other way to draw attention to your site unless it is canon.
And now i've swayed off topic....
