Im new here, and over the last couple of weeks, I have been able to post URL's in my posts, but now all of a sudden, it tells me that I need to make 15 posts. Why is it that I was able to do it before and not now?

I don't see any urls in your posts while skim reading; however, you shouldn't have been able to post urls until the 15 posts were reached, the message should've been displayed from the start, but it doesn't really make a difference, it's apart of the rules anyway as you can't post them until the 15, which you realise now.

When we upgraded the forums, some of our plug-ins borked. One of them was the limit we have people with under 15 posts linking to other sites. This is a preventative measure to ensure people don't join PC to just advertise their site. In the time you joined, we fixed that plug-in. Before then, you were able to post URLS. Now that we turned it back on, you won't be able to until you make 15 posts.

This doesn't mean spamming to get your post count up to 15. Just make some solid posts around the forums and you'll be able to link to whatever you wish (as long as it isn't other forums or pornography or anything else we don't allow) as much you want.

Ok, thank you so much for telling me the problem, now I understand :)
