    Default Suggestion "hide"

    Hello,

    Is it possible to get the "hide" function here on gpwa ?

    example ( https://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=282328)

    I could hide links / text and make it not visible for google or unregistered members.

    regards

    The sense of a public forum [area] is certainly not to hide text from the public audience.
    Only if someone has something to hide or believes, unregistered people are less worth than registered ones, what is for sure not my opinion.
    A forum is no private club, where the members are writing for the members only.
    In a public forum everyone writes also for the public audience and has to stand for what she/he is writing or he is a weak person.
    And a public forum is no SEO testing ground.
    A public forum is a place of love.

    Every user can make links in his posts very easy useless if he believes, they are rogue, when she/he simply does not add the http://www. or www., and also the moderators changing links to worthless texts with xxx if they are obviously rogue.

    affpower.com = useless = no link
    http://www.affpower.co.uk = useful = link

    For everything else apart the obviousness, the question must be allowed: "Who has the right to decide, for all, what "rogue" is and what not?"

    There is a way to make forum signature links no-follow.
    https://www.gpwa.org/forum/support-n...tml#post770296

    For regular forum links, I will share your links with some people here and get their thoughts.

    As far as hiding posts, we have a "hide" feature and that is the private forums. All posts and links there are not picked up on Google.
    I am here to help if you have any issues with an affiliate program.
    Become involved in GPWA to truly make the association your own:
    Apply for Private Membership | Apply for the GPWA Seal | Partner with a GPWA Sponsor | Volunteer as a Moderator
