POLICY: LINKS IN SIGNATURES AND HOMEPAGES

You may not have links in your signature until you reach Junior Member status (50 posts).  If you are a Newbie with links in your signature your posts will be removed as soon as they are noticed.
 
Sorry if that seems harsh, but there have been a large number of spammers creating an account with commercial links in their signature, posting one or two hello-type posts, and never being heard from again.  These posts clutter up the forums, and serve no purpose other than to spam the links.  There is no problem with active forum members linking to their blog, promoting their favorite website, etc., but this is a privilege to be earned by contributing to the discussions, and the simplest place to draw the line is at the status change.
 
In addition, any posts by new members with a website in their profile may be removed at a moderator's discretion if they appear to be spam.  This is a relatively low-traffic board and the moderators can generally tell who is genuinely participating and who is just here to spread links around.  If you feel your post has been removed in error, feel free to PM any moderator (click their name, then Send Private Message) for a personal apology.
 
Of course, exceptions can be made for exceptional circumstances, and there is no intention of making this policy retroactive: that is, old posts which violate this policy will generally be left in place.  Remember, this is a policy, not a law carved in stone for all time.
 
Thank you for your understanding.
 
 
tl;dr: link spam not welcome here--go peddle your crap elsewhere.
