Posted:Hi Malcolm. I just updated my signature with my new homepage address and none of the links seem to be active. Is HTML/UBB code off in signatures? If so how come?Or maybe I'm just doing it wrong - it worked before though.

Posted:Unless I am mistaken, they were turned off because some people were using the HTML/UBB code capabilities to advertise websites that are essentially in direct competition with Malcolm, selling fire toys and such. While the competition is not a bad thing, the free advertising is. Malcolm pays a pretty penny each month for bandwidth usage, the store funds this site, esentially. For someone else to come in here and *freely* advertise to get business away from Malcolm is really kind of low, imho. And since Malcolm wants to keep the site ad free (let's face it, who really likes banners and pop-up ads?), the only way to control it is to turn them all off!(Mine was shut down too, and I don't even advertise a competing site!)I can completely understand Malcolm's standpoint from a business perspective and support it thoroughly (as if I have a choice!

Posted:Pele is correct.I actually have to sell 150 poi sets/month just to pay for the bandwidth alone. The easy option was to shut down the UBB and HTML in the signatures. However people can still see and type the links into the address bar on the browser.
