Smile Hi All!

My website pen name is Wildfire8470, but I go by ~K.~ I am new to being published (1st erotic romance pubbed in Jan. this year.) I'm hoping you will all help me out with how things work here. [Promotion deleted - MODERATOR]

I'd like to post my book and a few purchase links. I understand that short links are not allowed. Can anyone help me define what "condensed URL" means? I'd much rather ask, than haul off and do it wrong.

~K~

Hi, Wildfire8470, and welcome to MobileRead.

To answer your question, the condensed URLs forbidden by the Guidelines are regular links that have been run through a URL shortening service. For example, the Wikipedia entry for Superman is http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman. That same link, run through Google's URL shortener becomes http://goo.gl/yv4s. At MobileRead, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superman/ is an allowed link, but http://goo.gl/yv4s is forbidden, even though they take you to the same destination.

There are a few special rules for authors here also. You can read them at Promotion Posting Guidelines and Rules for posting affiliate links in this forum.


And thanks, by the way, for taking the time to read the Guidelines!
