Question about Forum Signature

Hey guys!

Ive started a blog which will contain german reviews of iPhone/iPad Games and Apps.

Am I allowed to link to this site in the signature, so developers can come up and request (free!) reviews if they want to be promoted to the german audience?

Cheers

I believe you're allowed to link to it in your sig, but not draw attention to it by advertising in your actual posts.

That right. A subtle link in your signature is fine.

Do you mind if I join in this?

If I just lets say, post a my blog's link but is related to the topic, is that considered 'advertising'?

Can't insert link to url on signature

Hello people!

I'm having problems trying to insert a link to my website in my TA forum signature. Using the signature editor, this is the code generated:

HTML Code:
[URL="http://dyabitgames.com"]Dyabit Games[/URL]
And that's exactly what's shown on the forum, the code, instead of a link.

Any ideas? What code do you people use to show url links on your signatures?

Thanks in advance.

That code is correct, but the forum disables a bunch of features for low-post new members.

This includes in-text URL links, signature links, and generally links of all kinds except Appinfo and youtube video embeds. This restriction gets lifted at around 25-30 posts from what I understand, so if you keep posting (and don't get in trouble for spamming) you'll get there in no time and links will be enabled automatically.
