Why are people advertising non-DAZ lighting training in their signatures? I’ve seen it in the signature of several people, I think, Do they work for that company? Do they get some kind of kickback for clicks or something? Does DAZ allow that kind of advertising on their forum? I find it kind of off-putting.
They get a kickback, but not based on click-throughs, it’s just a flat gift cert per month is my understanding. There was an email that went out to (at least some) customers of one product offering a gift cert a month for folks who were helpful, regularly posting forum members.
The idea I believe is not to incentivize useless posting, but if you’re already being helpful, and would like to make money in addition, then adding that in your signature would work. I presume there was a vetting, where the people offered their usernames, and the product owner checked out their posting history, so it wouldn’t just be ‘some guy/girl’ spamming to get the gift cert.
I didn’t investigate it further myself, as I pretty much knew what was going to be expected. Plus I’m too new to be particularly helpful, or prolific in posting…and, I admit, I’m looking for beta tester folks to try out my own web service, which means my signature is spoken for.
Hope that helps!
