Links to ads in sig lines?

There is an interesting discussion going on over at THR, where they are about to institute a new set of policies that will affect both private and commercial sales on the site. No comment on those changes. But the discussion has raised an interesting question. It seems that some have, on occasion, included links to their business sites, or even to threads in the Buy/Sell/Trade forums, in their signature lines. Is that kosher here on TFL? Would it be acceptable, for instance, for me to do the following with my signature?

Cogito, ergo armor.
For Sale: R&D Conversion Cylinder for Pietta 1858 Remington.

I hadn't thought of this before. Don't know if I like the idea or not, but I might avail myself of it occasionally ... if acceptable.

We allow links to businesses, generally as long as they are firearms related.

As for links to active sales in the Gun Show Forums, Shane Tuttle or Mal H would be the ones to answer that question.

We have no problem with members adding a link in their signature to their ongoing Gun Show thread(s).

Thanks for the prompt reply. New idea to me; appreciate the feedback.

I'll second that, Legionnaire. The number of available lines able to be posted in members' sig line were limited sometime back. That toned down the over the top billboard signs for their businesses.

If a person is eligible to post in the Gun Show forum, then they should be able to stick it in their sig line. The key to continue to be able to do so, however, is to follow the Gun Show forum rules. If they're not followed, and ones' post has been deleted, the link will not work.
