I'm an Artist, and my art is inspired by the brilliant Late MC Escher. I saw that it was against policy to add your website's link, which seems a bit strange for a forum, but if those are the rules then I guess I'll leave that out. I recently finished one of my drawing in 2014 titled TRIANGU... No wait this might be considered spamming, better not mention the title. Oh, I almost forgot my name is M... Wait, best not. this might be considered promoting myself, more spamming. OK, I can see using this forum ain't gonna be so easy. Let me just say this, if I can't mention my art website, you see my username, you figure it out.

Welcome to the forum. It is acceptable to put your website link in your signature.

Fine Art you sound as though you have been burned. I'm sorry about that. As Dickhutchings said you are welcome to put your website in your signature and then it will be included in all your posts. Most of us do that. It's more than OK to mention the paintings name that you have done and we encourage all member to posts images of their paintings.

Hi and welcome to the forum. By the way I agree that the forum should ease up on links in posts, spamming is one thing but when a regular member puts a link to one an online store with their art stuff (Etsy for example) I don't think that's spam. After all isn't this forum also about helping artists sell and promote their art?

You're probably safe with one or two mentions over time.
Theres a world of bot's out there for sites to contend with so cant really blame them.

What do you mean by "You're probably safe with one or two mentions over time?

Thanks for letting me know that I can add my website to my signature. I'll be sure to do that. And it's also nice to know that I can probably get by with adding my link once or twice over time. (or maybe not)

My post was supposed to come off as a bit humorous but sometimes people mistaken my personality for having an attitude problem. And Terry, yes I have been burned, but that was a very, very long time ago when I was a little kid, and I no longer play with fire.
