They should allow link sharing from pre-approved sites like Wrong Planet, SFW Wordpress, etc

I'm not sure what you mean by this?

We are generally allowed to share links as long as they are SFW. Facebook is not allowed because that gives out very personal details. But aside from that, I have never seen a link turned down unless it's NSFW or blatant advertising.

I remember seeing Wrong Planet in somebody's signature, so I thought they were allowed there?

Are we allowed Facebook PAGES but not profiles?

No, Facebook is not allowed at all. The only thing I've seen allowed are image addresses that link to only a photo rather than an actual page.

It's highly unlikely it will get approved. Use a site like Flickr or Photobucket, both are perfectly fine for photography or make a thread and post the photos themselves using the image addresses.

We already allow most sites to be linked. We only have restrictions on what shouldn't be linked, as the rules say...
Acceptable Content Includes (but is not limited to):


Tumblr
Flikr
Instagram
Blogspot
Livejournal
Pinterest
Quotes (assuming they aren’t slanderous)
Any other appropriate text or images may be posted. If you are unsure about any text or images, ask a moderator.

Unacceptable Content Includes (but is not limited to):


Facebook
Twitter
Pornographic Websites
Illegal Hacking/Cracking Resources
Illicit torrents
4chan (or any other “chan” site)
Youtube videos and links, including links to channels
Ask.fm or anyother similar sites


Any kind of offsite contact information (which includes prompts to it), including (but are not limited to) the following:


Skype, Oovoo and Google+
KIK and Whatsapp
AIM, Yahoo Messenger, Google Chat, and ICQ
iMessage addresses and Blackberry Messenger PINs
Gamertags (PSN, Xbox Live, etc... [note these are permitted in the about me section of your profile.])
Personal Contact Information (i.e. a phone number or address)
Gorey, vulgar, racist, or illicit text or images
Any images of self harm or any triggering images in general
Any sexual content or remarks (i.e. penis size, interests etc.)
Obscenely large text (i.e. Size 6 and greater)
Asking people to “add you” or to “email me”

While these guidelines are under the signature rules, they apply to the whole site.
You should either make a thread and post just the images, or create a flickr to host your images.

Facebook isn't allowed because it's a social media website, not because it's NSFW. Given contacts on a personal page, evildoers can abuse that to spam or say bad things. The problem isn't that your page must be reviewed, it's Facebook. Both WrongPlanet and blogs, however, are 100% OK

Hope to be of help :)

Since when is Youtube on the "not allowed" list? People link to Youtube videos all the time as long as they're SFW.

That was extremely well worded. Thank you!

I think that means links directly to videos.
It's fine if they're posted using the code.

As far as photography goes its better I think just to post pics here and use say imgur etc to host.

I believe it's a mistake - I certainly don't enforce that rule and I don't believe anyone on the staff does either...probably just a typo

That's the rule for signatures, not posts. I have seen people warned for having Youtube videos in their signatures and I believe I've warned people for it as well. They're fine in posts, are they fine in signatures too?

I've asked about this and I was allowed to share my Twitch channel, again, provided it was SFW. Which mine is. To clarify, I only asked to link to it, not put it in my signature.

Eh, when I was a mod that was iffy. I don't think we allowed it for signatures. But I could be wrong.

Ah, that explains it :P What is meant by that is that people aren't allowed to use the code in signatures as it's obtrusive and takes up too much space for a signature. As said, that could go either way. If someone's linking to an inappropriate video/channel, they'll be warned, but if it's just a song or something I don't have a problem with it

Can YT video signatures be set to autoplay? That would be sick! I am an animator so...
