Signature Photo Gallery Link Mysteriously Deleted
« on: June 27, 2008, 10:42:38 PM »
I have a link to my photobucket album in my signature.  I have noticed twice in the last few days the link is mysteriously deleted but the text above the link remains.

Any idea what causes this?  I have to check my profile every once and a while and add the link in now and then.

Regards,

CB

I believe this may answer your question.

See under heading "Signature Lines".  We don't allow links in the signature lines or avatar captions.  One of the main reasons for doing so is that when search engines "crawl" a site, they pick up all links like this.  And also, we simply just don't want links or banners in the signatures to begin with.

John and I were discussing this today as he asked me to remove the .com from my avatar captions. I did so and then I told him about little globe icon under the avatar which links directly to FaireNews anyway. Try it, click the globe and see where it takes you.

Thanks.

Actually I had the photo album already as my "Website URL".
