    Obviously someone shouldn't be responsible for advertising someones site in your sig and that site scams. If someone makes their own thread advertising a website, whether they are a worker or the owner I guess is a different discussion. But for the sake of @ABM's suggestion, if someone creates their own thread advertising a website and that website scams I think they should be held responsible but I think a lot more can go into responsibility.

    Is the person that created the thread responsible for all the debt (amount scammed.) I support this, I would just like to see other peoples opinions as I'm on the fence since this is a broad subject.

    Thanks.

    I think the difference with signatures is that you see banner ads all over the place, in a signature is not much different. However, a thread has a lot more power and obvious/strong claims.

    Why is this issue being avoided? It's been plenty of time to discuss and determine appropriate actions.

    Tbh we should make people responsible for signatures too, as average user associates them with an user whom profile it was posted on, which may lead to scam. If this continues to be allowed a very dangerous precedent might be set where scammers will get a green flag to start buying well known people signature spots

    I thought that if you make a post claiming a reputation, you (and whatever you advertise) are working under your reputation and thus you are liable. See Invas Vouches for a fairly similar case - They claimed a number of vouches, Panda is claiming his donor rank/mod status.

    When did this ever change? The dispute was with the site, but Panda should also be liable under that ruling?

    Personally the sig space issue I think could simply be resolved as stating
    "The following are paid advertisements and I'm not personally involved"
    I agree a fair bit wth veng.
    Honestly I'm a little torn on this. Using panda as an example and rsgoldrush.
    I have done a fair amount of bussiness with rsgolsrush. Admitly I first saw the appeal to them because a mod was essentially vouching for them. I have had plenty of great experiences with rsgoldrush and this isn't targeted at them!
    I do not expect persay a worker should be held liable for the actions of owners. However honestly I'm not sure if this should be a thing to be carried by the accomplishments of others to promote your own bussiness.
    To some degree Panda gets compensation for posting RsGoldrush's page instead of having to spend money on donor status and such himself and posting it himself. It garners him a certain amount of bussiness just because of their threads tags.
    Personally as a general policy I think the website/or owner only should be allowed to make the initial post. (Since that is the person you will hold liable for issues. A worker is never liable)

    All this said I don't see an issue with panda/rsgoldrush!

    Alternatively something along the lines of

    This is a paid advertisement by "Panda" on behalf of "Rsgoldrush" would also suffice as a disclaimer
