Default URL tag not working?

I apologize profusely if this is a commonly known issue, but I read through the rules post and searched the forums but have not come across anything.

Whenever I try to use the [url] tag in posts or my signature instead of creating the actual link it just displays the tags and url in text. Is there something I have to do in order to enable this on my account?

Example:
http://www.google.com

Thanks!

You won't be able to post links until you have a certain number of posts, I forget how many exactly, I think it's like 15 or 20. We enabled that to try and help fight against spam accounts. Not sure if it's working or just making life harder for new members

Actually I think it's a great idea, that way at least people aren't clicking the spam links by accident, which in turn could ramp up the spamming x10.

Thanks for letting me know

I'm actually at 20 posts but still unable to use the URL tag, which I'd like to use in threads regarding our upcoming game. So I was just hoping to check on this to make sure there is nothing else I need to do?

EDIT: I hit the magic number, thanks again

Hey guys,

UPDATE: seems to be working now. Thanks

same problem here as well. URL tag not working and I have quite a bit over 20 posts. Great idea with the 20 posts rule.

I'm having the same problem. Assuming it's because I'm also a low poster ( for the moment! )

I just signed-up today and experienced the same issue. But after looking into the forums a bit more, I now understand the logic behind the rule. Thanks for sharing this!

Default How to post a clickable link in TA?

I posted a new thread yesterday but the links in it can't be clicked on to direct to the sites, so you have to copy and paste the links on your browser, which is quite not convenient.

For example, here is the link to our fb: https://www.facebook.com/shineconegames/.

Does anyone know what I should do to edit it? Thanks!!!
