With the 200 character limit on signatures and the urls being as long as they are, I can't seem to successfully include links to stories in my signature.  I only have two right now.  However, I see other people include numerous links in theirs. Am I missing some shortcut that others have caught on to?

Thanks in advance!

Link shorteners help--my go-to is bitly. You past the long forum URL into their website, and it spits out a much, much shorter one, which saves enough characters to squeeze a third story in, depending on your title lengths and so on. There's also a post in the main Creative Writing Corner forum where folks keep links to all of their past stories in a comment, and you can link to that comment in your signature too, along with, say, your active competition stories. That thread is here: Author Archive.

Hope that helps :)

Did you manage to sort it yet?
I had that exact same "no follow..." message at one point - got a few different error messages. along the way. The way I fixed mine was by drastically shortening the signature. I ended up removing the whole link to my first round story and then it worked. Not ideal but at least I still have my current flash fiction and micro fiction there.
