You may not realize it, but The Saloon is in a constant state of war...a war to bring eyeballs to our site instead of others.

Please help us by being judicious about posting links to other sites; of course we DO want our readers to get information they really need. It's not always possible, but when it IS possible, please copy and paste info HERE (with proper attribution, of course) instead of taking the easy way out and just posting a link. This helps us develop OUR content, not point readers away to other sites' content.

NO post should ever consist of just a link, without even a bit of relevant commentary.

Be especially wary of entering posts that lead people to sites that could be construed as competing against us in our own target audience. A lot of hard work goes into getting readers HERE; please don't undercut us with posts that prompt our readers to immediately go on to another site.

Let our competitors do their own advertising, thank you. bibibibibi

I'm not saying you should never post a link. I'm just asking you to be careful in doing so. Please help us keep readers on The Saloon rather than encouraging them to go elsewhere.

Please also see new Rule #16 in our amended Forum Rules. http://raoulschinasaloon.com/index.php?topic=16.0
