    Is linking to facebook allowable?

    Is linking to a slot car centric commercial website allowable?

    Although I think it is always preferable to provide the info here, rather then simply linking to another web site...
    I do realize that is not always practical... and often there is content of interest to fellow slot car racers & OWH readers that might actually exist out there somewhere else in the slot car universe (heaven forbid!).

    On the world wide web & information highway interwebs, etc... there is a fine line between "sharing" and "hijacking".

    So prior to posting a link, just ask yourself a few simple questions...

    "would really be better if I simply posted the info here?"

    "is this unique or original content that might be of interest to OWH readers?"

    "is this a link to something that is promoting a product or brand that should probably be a paid advertisement?"

    "is this something totally off-topic, or not about slot cars at all, and probably shouldn't even be posted?" (kinda like YouTube links...?)

    So... race announcements, race results, news, gossip, etc.... post it HERE.
    but interesting stuff that is original in content on another site,
    that is not directly duplicating what could be posted on this forum...
    then in some cases it's better to share the link here.
    (example would be the mainstream news articles that I share in the Media forum)

    So Facebook links....? I guess if you really have to, or it only exists there.
    Commercial web sites:
    OWH sponsors - pimp away!
    Others.... they should really become a sponsor... then pimp away! Otherwise...

    In any case... if you guess wrong, I reserve the right to delete if I darn well feel like it, depending on my interpretation or mood.

    Geez... I have no idea how to make a short answer...
