BFT Forum Announcment
Dear BFT Members,
Later this week we will be implementing a change to the forums that we felt we should make everyone aware of. We wanted to post an announcement to make you all aware of the change, explain some of the reasons, and get feedback from members.

The Change:

As a default we will be removing HTML signature files

What does that Mean:

Basically it means nothing to any users who don't currently have HTML Signature Files.

For those users that have pictures in their signature files but don't link them to another site, you should reply to this post and let us know and you will not be affected.

For services or individuals with existing partnerships (i.e. barter relationships) you will not be affected but please PM an Admin to confirm we have already activated your account.

For current advertisers of this site with links in their signature file you will not be affected

So basically the only users affected will be users with links/advertisements to outside web sites in their signature files. If you wish to keep your link/advertisement in your signature you will need to purchase a "BFT Supporter Signature Package ". For your convenience it can easily be obtained by clicking here . For merchants or services who wish to trade Signature link packages for BFT Web Site promotional Give-Aways, etc.. please contact us .

Why is this happening: We have decided to make this change for many reasons the main reason being, we feel it is a fair, reasonable way to create revenue. The Administrators and moderators of this forum are committed to keeping BFT a "community" environment and we are in complete agreement. We feel this is a great way to generate revenue and continue to provide value for users benefiting from the promotional links in their signature file on this forum, while not affecting the "community" appeal that users signatures with their favorite photo's and things have.

How do I know if I currently have a HTML Signature file? If you have anything in your signature file that is not just text it is HTML.

For those of you have HTML and don't link out to another web site and would like to keep your file the same. Simply reply to this post that you want to keep your current signature file and we will enable it before the switch is made.

What if I have questions about my specific HTML Signature file that has not been covered here? Please use the Contact Us form with questions.

How will I know if my account has HTML activated? You will see the following graphic above your signature file:

1) I have a grapic HTML pic in my signature block.

2) My pic is NOT pointing to another Web site. It points to a BFT location.

3) I would very much like to keep my signature block picture.

4) Please let me know if I said everything right.

Thanks.
