I came across someone posting about PBS with a link for referral a little while ago on craisglist and meant to ask about it. Is this ok to do or does it violate the rules?

It is not a violation of the PaperBackSwap rules. It may or may not be a violation of Craigs List's rules.

I will always be grateful to the person who posted the ad I ran across on craigslist about PBS. That's how I found this wonderful place.

I've seen those in my area too. I don't see how it would be in violation of either site's rules. The links would generate traffic here, which is good. I guess it could be in violation of craigslist's rules if it's posted under the wrong heading, but there's lots of advertising that goes on there!

Within the Community tab under "Spread the Word", there is a link for an email and nickname signature.  You can have it as part of your email signature or on discussion boards and you will get a credit if a person clicks on that and joins.

And you can put it on your personal emails, too.

Hi, I list on Craigslist quite often for PBS. I have had my listing deleted once but that is all. I have tried searching to see if it is against rules at all but haven't seen anything. I am grateful to the person who listed on Craigslist that got me started on here:)

I found this site because of a posting on Amazon.  It was in one of those chat things at the bottom so I gues it's okay.
