    I've introduced a post restriction for new members, this is due to new members not reading our welcome message and therefore completely ignoring the posting rules on advertising, which results in links appearing in totally unrelated topics.

    So for new members only, they will be unable to post links for at least 2 days which I'm hoping makes them go away or they find the welcome message we send to every new account.

    Completely understand that you want to get your blog, product, YouTube channel or whatever else out there but posting it everywhere possible is not the way, can you imagine scrolling through a thread to then see post after post of "check out my YouTube channel" or "here's my blog", seriously? So awful. There's the ads section for that.

    If you have somehow deleted your welcome message, I've uploaded a copy in our help section.
