We have had to close many topics (some of which have already been opened for quite some time) for breaking this rule.

It does not matter if you previously had the link added. If, at any time, there is no link back to either the Zybez website or these forums, then your topic will be immediately closed.

Directly quoted from the Global Recruiting Rules:

Quote

DUAL LINK POLICY:
All clan website/forums being advertised here MUST have a clear link back to either Zybez (http://www.zybez.net/) or Runescape Community (http://forums.zybez.net/index.php?) visible without requiring registration or logging in.
  • On websites: must display the Zybez.net or Runescape Community link somewhere on the page (can be on a 'Links Page').
  • On forums: must have a static link (outside posts/signatures) -or- a link via a redirect forum -or- a link as part of a forum description.

    Note: Why RSC requires you to place links on your site? (1) Advertising(hey, you're advertising here so it's only fair if there's a link back, right? Besides, your site will probably get a lot more visitors from RSC then RSC will get from your site. (2) Google rates websites higher that are linked to by more websites, and we really need to stay at the top.

If you post a recruiting topic without a link back to Zybez, it will be immediately closed. In order for it to be reopened, you must add an acceptable link on your clan's site and by contacting a Recruiting section CL or Clan Discussion Moderator.

If this is not done within four (4) days, your topic will be removed. If you add a link after the fact, you may either request that topic to be readded to the forum or you may post a new one.

If you post a new topic without adding the link, your topic will be immediately removed and your clan's recruitment topic rights will be removed for three days. Attempting to post another topic within these three (3) days will result in a suspension/ban.

If a link is still not added after this, then topic rights will be permanently revoked.

If you need help adhering to this policy (or if you have any questions), then please contact a Recruiting CL or Clan Discussion Moderator through private message.

What if my clan website is based on the RuneScape website?

If your clan website is based on the RuneScape website, then there is no requirement to link back. This is because it is against the RuneScape rules to link to external websites and would therefore be unfair for us to enforce such a rule.

I've been seeing a lot of clans who link to the price guide rather than to the Zybez website or the forum index. After discussion among the CD staff, we have decided that you must either link to the main Zybez website (http://www.zybez.net) or the forum index (http://forums.zybez.net/index.php?); the price guide will not count as your link back.
