The title is my question.
I kinda find it an odd rule.
I wanted to show you guys a banner i did a year ago, but the title popped up.

It prevents spamming. If you get a bunch of spamming members, then we'll have like another spam attack.

It's to prevent spam bots from advertising, or posting porn and such.

That's exactly what I was just about to ask. I've only been on the forum for 4 days so far, but I REALLY want to show a recolor I did D: I find this rule kind of annoying...

External links aren't even allowed on the forum unless putting them in your signature.

7 days isn't that long of a wait, anyway.

Maybe since they are new, and they don't want them to post anything bad or bad links?

Wait, a second. We're not allowed to post anything external at all?

Like youtube vids arent allowed, links to articles, links to games, etc. I mean that just seems a little ridiculous to me.

That reminds me of that post heartsNARIA posted last year, which is so true, but that's just my opinion, except for most of the personal info section but yeah.

It's considered advertising. Just wait 7 days. And you can just insert youtube links

Wait, so linking to a Youtube video is considered advertising, and to an article that isn't by you, I kinda disagree on not letting us post to articles.

Advertising
You only can advertise in your signature. This means no Private Messaging links, or posting links, or chatting links in the chatbox. This is a serious rule, and will be taken seriously.

The rules state this.

Youtube links are allowed, and some articles are allowed. Advertising your fantage fansite, your personal blog/site/forum, etc is not allowed to be posted and should be kept in your signature.

Advertising is not allowed, I understand that, but you said no external links are allowed to be posted.

I'm a little confused. My understanding was that we are not allowed to post any external links to advertise something we would benefit from. Is that correct, or are there other restrictions to what we can link.

That is correct. Anything that you can "benefit" from (aside from youtube videos, those are fine) is not allowed to be posted. And, anything that breaks our rules (such as inappropriate content) is not allowed to be posted.

If you have a question about a link, just PM a mod/admin and we will tell you if it is alright to post. Smile.

This is basically what I got:
You are allowed to post videos, articles, etc.. Just don't go all, "HEY GUYS LOOK AT MAH YOUTUBE VIDEO PLEASE LIKE IT!" or "LOOK AT THIS ARTWORK I DID NOW GO ON MY DEVIANT ART AND WATCH ME!'' and yeah.

Am I right?

Yes. Correct, because your two examples were advertisement.
