    Not unless that link is specifically useful for answering a question in a thread. So no gratuitous self-promotional links are allowed.

    No you can't, the only place where you can put a link to your own site is in the signature.

    You don't . That's not what this site is for. It's for discussing issues related to web design. If you are here to promote yourself, you are wasting your time. It won't be allowed. You could try the SitePoint Marketplace instead.

    Yes, three months before you can add a signature ... but you will never be allowed to "promote and market" your website here, so to speak—beyond a signature link that only logged-in users will see, and which are no-follow links, so that Google ignores them. So I say again, you are not here to promote or market yourself in any real sense. Thousands have come here before you to promote and market their sites, and now they reside in the dingy tomb of "banned members"—a truly miserable "banned of brothers", so to speak.
