On FM Scout you can chat about Football Manager in real time since 2011. Here are 10 reasons to join!

Why are there links to make us join other sites on this site?

Mediafire is not something I want to waste time on

Hi Everyone,

Can someone tell me why these links to Passion for Football Manager 2013 are allowed on this site please?
I'm not saying they're bad but they do require joining Mediafire. I think this uploader is trying to get members by offering something decent but only if you join another site.
I belong to many forums and every one warns then bans such members. How do I know what this site tries to get from me informationwise.
I would like comments on this please.

I couldn't find that if I'm honest, and as long as they've cleared it with Stam, it's fine. Even if they haven't, it's not exactly being well-advertised, so it's fine.

PS: I can shout if you really want me too :P

Thanks for the response. As I see it- to offer something that points away to a download that to get it, means passing on private info, is wrong. And they do advertise thamselves as the top site fore FM 2013.
If Stam says OK, then it's OK but not for me. The top site is this one.

Hey Britpol

I saw this post and I wonder what you got against me sharing a tactic I've created.
Everything I've created is shared on a personal blog free from advertises.

Unlike FMScout people don't need to log in to see my work
I've seen other who have published their content with link to their personal blog here as well, so why shouldn't I be credited?

There are so much untrue in your statements that I don't know where to start

I'm not saying they're bad but they do require joining Mediafire. I think this uploader is trying to get members by offering something decent but only if you join another site.

1) The tactic you links to are for FM12 - I lost everything of that work when a Norwegian hosting site got hacked.
2) People don't require to join mediafire! I use the same as 80% of others in here, so if you can't read then that's not my fault as you can download files without joining mediafire - this is only their advertisement that I can't do anything about.
3) You don't need to provide me any information to read my blog - in difference to FMscout where you publish your email, name, birthdate and whatsoever.
4) I have never advertised my blog as the top site for FM13 - but it's all relative.

I do agree that FMScout.com is one of the best sites out there. My blog is just an addition to it. If FMScout wants to partner up by having advertisements for their site at mine they are welcome to contact me.
Well i'd rather see an advertisement or link go to passion4football then [email protected] or sortitoutsi not that those 2 are bad, but you have to sign up to actually get acces to most parts of their content. While most of the stuff here is accesable without signing up and as far as i know their isn't a download limit either as a non member.

@passion who knows, maybe stam will contact you about it or any of the other mods
