If everyone hates the idea of an SCU OIFY forum, then they're definitely not going to like a spammy advertising forum.

Put your advertisements in your sig and people will see it and if they want to go there, then they will. Just advertising things on a forum would be a spammy sort of thing, I think. There'd be no point; there's nothing to discuss other than, "Hey, I go here and it's cool so you should too." and then people would be like, "Hey yeah it rules" or "Ugh this place is dumb." There's no real opportunity for discussion. Right now at least a person can go through a person's sig links and then PM the person with their thoughts. This keeps the boards clean and uncluttered, and most importantly, cuts the amount of spam.

I do not believe that an advertising forum would be a good idea.
Reason: People do not want to look through a forum to see if there's one that they like. What actually happens is that person unexpectantly (sp?) comes across a forum or website that sounds interesting to them in the signature of an individual. In other words, I would rather fall upon an interesting forum or website rather than having to search for one that suits my needs.

Also, it takes much more moderation, to make sure that no innapropriate websites or forums are being posted, that are against the forum rules.
My two cents.

I think advertising in your signature is enough, thanks.
