I agree with everyone here....affiliate marketing using a forum is indeed a great idea, but might be too complicated for a beginner....If you are already familiar with making money online, then go for it....but not if you are just starting....
Also, it is not a good idea to edit member's post's to put in your own affiliate links as it would make you lose your member's fast, and kill your forum's credibility. Just think if it was done to you....all your profits hijacked by somebody else...you'd be pissed. It can be done, but it's not worth it.
I suggest that if you want to push through with your idea of marketing through a forum, try to come up with more positive ideas on how you can promote products and earn, and also keep the trust of your members....
