    We prefer the term underfunded and overexperienced.

    I always like it when DP is in some way statistically better than other forums. : )

    It means DP is disappointing many members who earn (though small) through DP signatures.
    And if DP is earning through visitors/traffic so they should get chance to earn with it.
    This is my point of view though I don't use signature.

    I pay to access Charter Cable, and they make money from advertising.
    By the reasoning above they owe me some free cable advertising. :)

    Have you any inkling of an idea what it costs to host and maintain a busy VB Forum? ;)

    You of course have a lot of chance on earn through Digitalpoint forums, including but not limited to signatures!
    But why emphasize so much on SEO value of a forum signature ?? I mean do you think it is equivalent to 312 (your number of posts so far) high quality backlinks to your website?? Then you are doing it wrong! (or if you are firm in your believes then go buy a premium membership, it is much cheaper than buying 1000s of high quality backlinks after all, isn't it ? )
    Signature catch attention, so they do well in selling stuff does not matter is it do follow or no follow, just must be a clickable link or a clear message to the reader.

    and many forums do not even allow signatures, DP is still very generous to you comparatively.

    if I become a premium memeber does that mean I do not need a reputation to be able to use signatures?

    Didn't read this before,

    Now I understand why it's "vox populi" opinions pointing to scam deals occurring here due to the high number of inexpert teens playing to be the wealth and successful business men.

    Only hope their wealth is not based on ripping off other members, LOL

    Not really sure how a scammer could fake Quantcast info, but I suppose it's possible... don't know enough about it myself.

    I'm glad to see some real positive data for DP over the scammer admin's at WF where you pay to post in BST.

    Just a quick question, do premium members still get do-follow forum sigs?

    Yeah, but it's not guaranteed... more like it's a chance (anything the system considers as possibly spammish is nofollowed regardless).

    Oh? It took me forever to see this. That's sad. Just another example why this site is going down the drain. It's not anything Shawn did, it's the freakin hockers in the buy forums that are willing to sell anything to anyone dumb enough to buy it. There's very little in there actually worth pursuing. Sorry to hear this.
