    Those in control of the forum spam filter feel it's best not to say too much about how it works, particularly the mechanism that makes members 'trusted' as this would help those looking to post spam.

    Word to the wise...

    If (for argument's sake) someone were to post short comments in many different threads, just to reach the post count threshold that allowed links to be posted, then immediately started posting unsolicited links to commercial websites or services. The moderators ban-for-spam threshold may also be reached ;)

    If in doubt over what's permissible in the way of website links, it's probably best to message the mods first. I think it really comes down to whether links have been posted for commercial gain, those are the posts that we look out for. Products or software that are VR related or specifically designed for Rifts and Quest would generally be ok provided the posts weren't repeated or bumped in a spammy way.

    I am interested in it too. I often see some threads where answers with links can be useful for posters

    If any of you need clickable links in a post before you hit the requirements, let a moderator ( @kojack @DaftnDirect @Techy111 @nalex66 ) know and we can edit them in for you.
