As we have always tried to battle spam and abuse of the features available on the site, sometimes it has gotten out of hand when it comes to the links being posted in poster's signatures. For some, it is seen as form of free advertisement, and we are fine with a small amount of it as long as it isn't blatant. In order to curb the amount of linking spam on the site, we have setup the following measures:

- New members must post a set number of times before their links in the signatures will be visible. That number is a pretty easily attainable post number that any regular member could hit that limit in no time. Until then, a message stating that the link is not visible due to post limit is shown in your signature. Note: Any means to circumvent this limit by either adding your links to the body of your posts or making one-word posts to gain post counts could end in being banned.

- Only members logged into the site can view signatures meaning that all guests lurking will not be able to see your signatures. This curbs the amount of signature link spam. Just as above, adding your link to the body can result in short bans, or ultimately the link being censored from the site.


We are currently working on a Link Exchange program where regular members can post a link to their site here on Anarchy Nation, while posting a reciprocal link on their site. They will be able to add as many links, which would be approved just as long as a link back to Anarchy Nation is found. What if you don't want to have a link back to us? Anarchy Nation VIP members will be allowed to post links without having a link to us on their site. Finally, we are working on a setup that will allow people to pay a small fee to have their links showcased in our Anarchy Nation Market Place!

Anarchy Nation receives over 110,000 hits a day. It is categorized in all the major search engines, and have search engine bots crawling for new links. Every link properly placed on the site as explained above is categorized, which will increase traffic and score of your websites!
