A strange doubt!
Alright, It's hot and most of us know, Irrelevant self promotion isn't allowed. We many post a link to one of our post, which is realted to the on-going topic.
But IB provides a took to insert link to our blogs. I don't get the reason why is that necessary? Or why is it even there?
I've got one question to ask. How is this button even useful?
It's just part of the forum platform, Ritvik (it's included with other features). Maybe taking it off will be too cumbersome.
But not posting links and not allowing self promotion ensure the quality of discussion is maintained in the forum. Else things would go haywire. Check out LinkedIN forums and you'll see...
Hmm.... I had no idea they used some third-part platform for forums!
I have no idea how this forum is built, but what Vishal says may be true because we have been raising this question for a long time and have not got any reply till yet. Also as Vishal says, allowed or not, I personally feel that we should abstain from it otherwise it will eat out quality discussions
Yeah.. I agree one should abstain using it.. I was just curious why is it even there..
