actually, the restriction on posting urls is spelled out in the terms of service that you agreed to when you joined the site, allie - i guess you don't read those things any more carefully than i do... Wink

btw: if you had just clicked your browser's back button when you got that warning, it would've taken you back to the post box, where you could've removed the link(s) and then made the post.

i just added words to that effect to the warning; thanks for letting me know about this. Smile

So we cannot link to other sites anymore? I missed that. Is there a reason?

you can still link to sites, barbara; the restriction is only on new members, and it's only for their first 10 days and 10 posts.

there are two posts that talk about the reasons; the first one was when i restricted new members from posting urls in certain fields in their profile and can be found in the "message board tips" forum ("why can't i add my location, interests, etc. to my profile?"), and the second one was when i took that measure a step further by restricting new users from posting urls of any kind anywhere on the system, and can be found in the "news" forum ("change to terms of use").

these measures are intended to restrict message board spammers and spambots from polluting our community with their junk posts.
