Hi. I help out a lot of the forums answering questions, entirely just because I like to help and often I learn something through trying to figure out the problem.
Now I totaly understand why you should never offer your services in the forums, its all about empowering people. However I noticed that WP has even gone so far as to hide your website, and I think it would be a nice little tit for tat if we could at least have our website links on display so if someone really liked the help we gave they could choose to navigate to our website.
What do you guys think? I think it would give intensive for more helpers to spend time. There would of course need to be bans for anyone who withheld information or pointed to theire link.
