I know I'm dumb but I need to ask. To link URL's how do you do it again. Like on my old account it was easy but now it seems impossible.

You used to be able to switch between comicvine content and URL's, now the former is all that comes up, yes I know I'm stupid [BTW I know the screenshot doesn't appear just open it in a new tab].

Microsoft Edge user REEEEEEE. But for real I think it the whole linking ability thing has been changed, I’ve encountered the same, maybe a mod can clear it up.

@darkhoudini: @jacensolo77: I'm not a mod, but a veteran user. This isn't exactly a bug. It's part of the limits a new user has until a certain time frame has passed or they hit a certain comment count. It was implemented to stop spam bots from going crazy as we get to get attacked by those every now and again.

What's the limit? Like how long does it take to clean up.

@jacensolo77: Since i'm not a mod I honestly don't know what the exact number is for the post/link limiting to end. But I believe it should be removed when you hit 50 posts (Don't quote me on that). I'll call in a mod who might know the number or the reason.

@renchamp Can ya help me out here? Was I right or completely off?
