Posting Links on this forum?

No, sorry. The admin policy is that links external to EA should be only in signatures, and requests to remove them must be honored. Videos can be embedded in posts using the code, so long as they're appropriate. You could embed a video from a certain channel, but technically not link the channel itself.

    I'm fine with observing that policy, but it makes no sense. Not only referring to video embedding, but to any link we would like to provide. I gotta wonder why I can display a link where it is visible in every post I create (in my signature), and I'm allowed to write in a post "If you'd like more information, just follow the link in my signature." But I can't paste that same link in that same post. The link can be there, as long as it's visible below a horizontal line but not above the horizontal line. Just boggles the mind. What was the guy who came up with these rules taking? ;)

    It actually makes a certain sense to me. If you put a link in a bunch of posts, and it's something that needs to be removed, it can be removed across the board by a request for a signature change. One edit instead of several. It's just in case a link turns out to be problematic, I think.

    Excellent point. Hadn't thought of that. :)
