    When requesting a review please make sure that your URL is active and clickable. There are three ways to do this in the forums.

    1. Start your URL with www as in www.domain.com. The forums will automatically make it a hotlink. You can't surround it with quotes or parentheses for this to work automatically.

    2. Start with http://. This will work automatically as above but you most surround the URL with blank space for it to work.

    3. Use the URL UBB Code. The format and rules for using UBB Codes are explained at : http://www.webmaster-resources.com/forums/ubbcode.html

    This will make it easier for the moderators to approve your site and make it easier for other visitors to post their own reviews.

    It wasn't directed to you in general. It was just a tip provided to allow us to approve everyone's requests easier and allow people to review those sites a lot easier.

    TIP> Many MANY people put a period right after the URL (you too wluke). Don't. Put a space between the URL and the period so it doesn't become part of the URL. (hover over the example above from wluke to see what I mean.)

    Your right. Look more closely at my posted URLS though, if there is a period marking the end of a sentence I usually put "/." instead of just a period. Of course this only works if your not specifying a particular document in the directory. If it is a particular document I either manually hyperlink it nowadays or put it on its own separate line. I have only been using these forums since last August and am still learning little tricks about posting well formatted messages.
