Frequently Asked Questions


The following is basic information about our forum. Please read this before posting questions or answers if you are unfamiliar with this sort of forum. Click on any question to show or hide the answer.
  • What kinds of questions can I ask here?
  • Most importantly, questions should be relevant to our community. Before you ask, please make sure to search for a similar question. You can search for questions by their title or tags.
  • What kinds of questions should be avoided?
  • Please avoid asking questions that are not related to our community, too subjective or argumentative.
  • What should I avoid in my answers?
  • Internet Marketing Q&A is a question and answer site - it is not a discussion group. Please avoid holding debates in your answers as they tend to dilute the quality of the forum.

    For brief discussion, or to thank someone for their answer, please post comments, not answers.

    Also, please avoid putting personal links into the answers you post. Keep all personal/advertising links in your signature (available by clicking on your username link at the top of the page).
  • Who moderates this community?
  • The short answer is: you. This website is moderated by the users. The points system allows users to earn rights to perform a variety of moderation tasks.
  • How does the point system work?
  • When a question or answer is voted up, the user who posted it will gain points. These points serve as a rough measure of the community trust in that person. Various moderation tasks are gradually assigned to the users based on those points.

    For example, if you ask an interesting question or post a useful answer, it will likely be voted up. On the other hand if the question is poorly-worded or the answer is misleading - it will likely be voted down. Each up vote on a question will generate 1 points, whereas each vote against will subtract 1 points. The following table lists points gained per activity:

    Posting a question: + 20 points
    Selecting an answer for your question: + 30 points
    Per up vote on your question: + 10 points
    Per down vote on your question: - 10 points
    Limit from up votes on each question: + 100 points
    Limit from down votes on each question: 30 points
    Posting an answer: + 40 points
    Having your answer selected as the best: + 300 points
    Per up vote on your answer: + 20 points
    Per down vote on your answer: - 20 points
    Limit from up votes on each answer: + 200 points
    Limit from down votes on each answer: 50 points
    Add for all users: + 100 points

  • What questions get Featured on the home page?
  • Great questions that get great answers will be Featured in a rotation above the other questions on the home page. In order to have your question Featured, you need to have your Avatar set in your Profile.
  • How to change my picture (gravatar), and what is gravatar?
  • The picture that appears in user profiles is called a gravatar, which means globally recognized avatar.

    Here is how it works: You upload your picture (or your favorite alter ego image) to the website gravatar.com from where we later retrieve your image using a cryptographic key based on your email address.

    This way all the websites you trust can show your image next to your posts and your email address remains private.

    Please personalize your account with an image - just register at gravatar.com (just please be sure to use the same email address that you used to register with us). The default gray image is generated automatically.
