The decision has been taken to enforce signature and www profile linking rules on this site.
You should now strictly follow the signature rules.
This mean, you should at least have posted a 100 posts before you can use your signature privilege.
This could seem a bit too much posts, but, this is as well the only way to keep the Good quality of the backlinks provided to our dear members.
As you may have noticed, some user are tempted to just post a single message and never read the answer or even come back just because they know it will be a good Backlink within a short period of time.
Our shared interest is to keep up a good quality in posting and to avoid spammers.
This being said, you should not try to post one hundred post as fast as possible, a hundred post is far enough to figure out one's goals.
Do not forget signature privileges can be removed any time, and it's not so good to loose hundreds of backlinks at once.
This is a way to thank real users (not spammers) for their involvement in this community. A great thing for true users, as one hundred more backlinks on a well spidered web site is a real nice thing.
Concerning the www profile link, the decision is 50 posts before it will show up. Same reasons as above, but you'll have those backlinks (again very good ones) faster
Due to an increasing spam harassment these past months, the decision has been taken to limit the number of active links a new user may add in his messages. From now on, new user will have to post 10 messages before they will be able to add more than one active link in a post. You will still be able to add more URLs in your messages (for example to link to a page of your site to get support) but you will have to un-activate them by adding an hyphen ("-") at the beginning.
We hope you understand we all need to fight again spam, the final solution would be to totally disable signature and www link, and to limit active links in post to zero, or to use a nofollow meta tag, but the project is really to help out Search Engine Optimizing, so ...
This has to be said, for this growing community's best.
