Have you ever seen something like this on vbulletin?
so if you did, the question is, why vbulletin use this mod?
ok forget vbulletin, have you ever seen redirect links on Internet?!
so, why some site using redirect links?
Why would you want a redirect link?
So it’s not so obvious but you’re promoting an affiliate link!!
It’s a personal choice…
Also, you can put a commercial banner for advertising in the redirect page, force users to see the advertising!
So, I post an external link within a topic, and members who click that link will be redirected (to where?) after a countdown expires?
It's just not clear at all, to me.
after countdown expires, you will redirected to real link.
