    why cant people post website URL's!

    how can we help people without being able to post URL's directly to as an example: a developper website.

    It's not like people leave this forum or you risk getting sued.

    I really dont get why you are making lifes of many people dificult by being so crazyabout URL's...
    I get the "no forum url" thing but not the rest

    most URLs (thousands) are not blocked. you are either redirected automatically or simply have to do an extra click. URLs posted that are not in accordance with our rules are blocked

    Would you mind telling me why my thread about the proxy was deleted and I received an infraction for it when I didn't post any links?

    EDIT: @FrozenIpaq (below): It was bgizzle himself who gave me the infraction

    Now it's obvious why you brought this topic up. For the normal users who posts links to guides and releases it's not a problem at all. As another site it is a problem for you. You are a competitive website to iPTF and is thus blocked - that should be completely understandable as it is the same way on the forums that I operate

    @Simon - your best bet is to contact whoever gave you the infraction via PM and not in an existing thread about another issue/problem - don't think bgizzle will come back and check this - better to stay on topic anyways

    first of all, i can see the amount of hits to every outgoing site, so you must have posted a link or it wouldn't be showing up in the statistics.

    secondly, you received an infraction because you posted a thread advertising your website on the forums without permission.



    also, in general, i reserve the right to block links to ANY outgoing site for any reason. as a courtesy to the members, i have outlined the guidelines that i typically use to decide whether to block a link or not.
