    I have no idea what your really asking, but my suggestion is to click on the globe icon and use that to insert the link.

    That, or wish harder.

    Remove the [/color] from the link and try again.

    "My Cyclone Football Coverage"

    Hopefully this works...last time the format was messed up in my post from how it actually looks. I'm basically just trying to make a hyper link.

    Re: Signature

    ...so apparently the hyperlink will work when I post, but not in my signature because I get the error:

    The following errors occurred with your submission:
    1. BB code url is not allowed.

    Re: Signature

    I am toying with an idea of leaving links out of signatures except for donors. With ad revenue way down with the economy and site expenses increasing all the time, it's a novel way to maybe encourage a couple more people to donate for those extras that are trying to take people away from the site to someplace else.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    It would keep people from pimping other sites for free anyway...

    Probably a good idea. I thought this was already banned since I had a link removed from my signature (and I am a donor). No big deal, but I wasn't sure what the policy was.

    Re: Signature

    Right now the policy is as such...

    - No links to Cyclone related blogs or forums (could be considered competition).

    - Nothing that is offensive, slows down page loads or is too large.

    That's it right now - those are the rules as they've existed from day one. The possible use of links being only for donors is just something I put in a few days ago to see if anybody would notice.
