This is usually to prevent spam from people. A Lot of boards require you to have 20 to 30 posts of substance before you're allowed a signature. It acts as a deterrent to people just spamming the forums with 5 or 6 posts and their signature on all the posts.

You'll find a lot of boards don't allow people to post links as well for a similar time period.

Define useful :)
lol, who can define it! My personal definition is if it is relevant to the forum...

to be honest if the link belongs to a regular poster, no issue... but hate the drive by posters who drop in their 10 posts so they can get the links in and are never heard of again


On Mr. Forbairt... we're all still waiting for "coming soon ... ( vague but descriptive isn't it ) " to be removed :p

Signature contradiction...

I don't really get it... somewhere it says that it's ok to link to your own site in the signature, yet in the forum rules it's called spamming... This is bewildering...:confused:

From the forum rules:

Self-promotion is okay, but spamming isn't. If you can't see the difference between the two, then maybe this isn't the site for you.
