    Hi I know only community advertisers are allowed to advocate sites that they are connected to or own directly through links and posts etc. Are community members allowed to have their logo as their avatar or would this too be breaking forum rules?

    Cheers in advance :)

    I don't think so, other people have their logo as their avatar, though I guess to make sure PM Anthony

    As far as I know logos are fine but domain addresses are not.

    Thanks for all the replies... I take it the above statement means that your logo cannot display a domain name within it? Or just that there is no domain linking in comments?

    Logos from a branding perspective are acceptable (at least at the moment), but any form of solicitation on the logo itself and that would be against our terms.

    Hope that clarifies.
