What type of self promotion is prohibited?

Hello

I was reading the rules for the "Upcoming iPhone and iPod touch Games" section, and this left me confused: "Self promotion is strictly prohibited".

Opening a thread about one's game is a kind of self promotion, thus I'd like to be sure of what to post before doing anything bad.

As a developer, I suppose I can: a) post about my game, b) post links about an online demo of my game, c) post links to a development blog about my game. Am I right? Or not?

I was also wondering if I can have a link to my game's development blog in my signature.

Thanks

Daniele

Yes, developers are welcome to promote their apps, but just clearly identify yourself as the developer of said apps. And the sig is fine.
