I would like to start this by saying I fully agree with the policy of "No new threads promoting personal referral codes". There is a single authorized thread where people are allowed to pump their codes and what not and it's fine. That being said, (and please correct me if I'm wrong), but people are allowed to promote any other kind of web link in their signatures right? How is a simple: "Save $1000 on a new Tesla using this link: <link> " in a signature any different? Much like the banner ads at the top and bottom of this site, most people just tune out signatures anyway. A referral code benefits Tesla, the code user, and the code supplier. There really is no downside to these, after all they come from the company that is the reason we have this forum to begin with. If anything, allowing referrals in signatures frees up mods to focus on things actually distracting from the quality of the site. I was just wondering what the cause for the policy as it stands is.
