    limit on posting links urls

    I wanted to post to the Hunter "Fix my DPS" thread but it rejects my post saying I need more posts before I can post a message with links in it.
    I guess this is some kind of security rule, but it is frustraiting cause I signed up for the specific purpose of fixing my DPS and that thrad chain requires links to your Armory profile and som boss fight logs.

    I am not sure even ho many post I need to make to be able to post a message with links.

    If I remember correctly you need 10 posts before being able to post links.

    you need 10 posts in any section except the funstuff in offtopic.
    it is to stop spam bots.

    Four posts in four years.
    You have six more years before you can post links at this rate.

    Well I been reading this Forum for years, I just decided recently I needed some real help with my Beast Master DPS
    but they require I post links to my Profile and to logs, kind of a catch 22

    Thanks for your replies I will just need to do mu 10 posts, I understand the security requirement Forums can really be ruined by spam bots

    You can post URLs under 10 posts, just not links. Make sure not to include http:// or www. to avoid the URL being automatically converted into a link.

    Can't you just do a... http://www.mmo-champion.com/members/574202-Nixx to break it?

    Edit: Apparently not.
    Edit2: Apparently some parts of it were broken by doing that.

    That seems more annoying for everyone.
