Spam Prevention & New Member Restrictions
Due to the rash of spammers posting advertisements on the site I have implemented restrictions that prevent New Members from posting links.
Any link posted by a New Member will be replaced with a link to our FAQ page.
I have also implemented a change to the way links are handled by regular members. Posting links works fine, but I have added a tag that makes search engines ignore the link. So posting a link to your personal website will let people link to it, but will not help your search engine rankings. This measure is in place to prevent spammers as well.
So, to summarize in large letters for those of you who do not want to read the description above:
1) Links posted by New Members are replaced with a link to the FAQ.
2) Links posted by all other members will work, but will be ignored by search engines.
