    You will need 10 forum posts to be able to post urls.
    It's a prevention measurement against spamposters.
    Just hang around the forums a bit and you will get enough posts in no time.

    Rules are found there: https://gbatemp.net/help/terms

    Awesome, thanks - is that why IMG BB Code doesn't work too? Only allowed to post images after x number of posts too?

    Some sections of the forum wont rise your post count like this one you are in right now, just a FYI.

    Ha, I know, that's pretty standard for forums where your post count needs to be above x for something. They always normally exclude your "Intro" post, and/or comments on it :)


    URGH - Plus, can only make 1 thread every 24 hours! God damn it! :(

    For urls you can split them up a bit
    https : // gbatemp.net /threads/hello.498154/ sort of thing.

    Not great if you are writing a guide but for the sake of a post or two...

    Good point! Now I'm just caught out by the bloody 24 hour per thread thing! I only joined up because a) Getting back into the Wii for a bit and b) I really wanted to discuss something about Accio Hacks (No, not asking "why doesn't it work / download codes") but can't make a new thread now. I get wanting to avoid spam etc, but 1 thread per 24 hours is extreme and annoying - especially when I'd already written out a huge post only to find out I can't post it... Well, actually, first attempt, I got told I needed more than 10 posts to include links, 2nd attempt (I previewed first this time) noticed images not working - assuming for same or similar reason, Then I made this intro post, went back to other tab , removed images tried to post (3rd attempt) said gotta wait 24 hours :nayps3:

    just had to copy and paste my post into a text editor so I don't lose it haha

    Forgot to mention first time.
    If you have a title you would prefer and stick the post up from notepad to something like pastebin I will edit it in and the title if you want.

    If you have a thread you would want to sacrifice I can edit that.
    Otherwise I can split posts from an existing thread.

    I can't post as you directly (nobody can unless you have access to the database) but I can make things appear somewhat like that.

    Ahh, ok - no I though you meant post on behalf of me (but still as your account), not literally as me :)

    Sadly no, this intro thread is my only one, since, as a new account, I can only make a single thread per 24 hours. :( Thanks for the offer though

    If you want to make the reply to this the name of the thread you want to make, the location of it and a "link" to the pastebin of its content I will split it into a new thread in that location with the contents of the pastebin in it.
    It will appear to be from you just like you made it with a fully activated account.

    Edit. Done
