in thread New jobs section

I don't have anything to add here, but wanted to add my voice.

I certainly think it should be allowed (if for no other reason than it will happen anyway :) ). It will work best if given it's own section. Vroom, since you aren't an employment site, I'm not worried about functionality. If they want a job database, there are lots of sites that do that. I'm thinking just a place where they can drop their message, and refer to it.

    But do not allow the normal [ ] linking tricks to work. I would be concerned about people posting "answers" to questions that were merely links to their job posting.

    Actually, would it be useful to make posting to the Jobs board unavailable to AMs? If you are going to post a job offer, then you must at least go through the steps of creating a user account.

      But do not allow the normal linking tricks to work.

      Actually, that doesn't bother me. I can think of (a few) cases where this would be relevant. More importantly, you can't really keep them from linking anyway (HREF's would still work). I don't mind someone in a thread about writing a DBD module saying "There's a relevant job notice at [Jobs: Bob]" To me that's a different creature than a job listing, and someone looking over your shoulder shouldn't think you are job hunting.

      Now in many cases it WOULDN'T be appropriate, but a lot of things aren't appropriate, and that the point of the moderating.

      That initially makes sense to me, but again we have the concern that they could always post out of section as an AM. I'm willing to say that they should be allowed to post AM, since if they don't have a regular acccount here, but make one, people might /msg them and so forth expecting answers, or perhaps bug them in the chatterbox.
