Sorry to be a bother - I have followed everything and managed to post my story. I just don't quite get what I have to put on my signature to link it for people. 
I can get to edit profile, I can see the box but I'm not sure what I'm putting there. 
Could someone explain it to me one more time. 
Thanks from a newbie that is very confused

No probs! 

So in the signature box on edit profile, you need to basically write your story title, it's competition, and attach it to a link to the page that you've posted. You don't have to say the competition but it's fairly standard as it lets people know what kind of story it is/ whether it's prose or a script.

Firstly, type 'FF18 R1' or something similar just so people know it's for flash fiction round 1. Then type the story title, and if you want, its genre. So at this point you'd simply be typing: FF18 R1 TITLE (genre)

Next, either side of the title, write [URL=] ... and [/URL]  

Then copy the website link of your submission post on the forum, and paste it after the '='. 

It looks wrong, but this is mine as an example (imagine the first '(' is a '[')
FF18 R1 G23 (URL=https://forums.nycmidnight.com/topic18136_post227607.html#227607]The Builders of Threadneedle Steet[/URL] (hist fic)


Be sure to preview it and test the link, then save. Hope this helps! x

Hi Relleanne!  If you found the box for the signature, that's half the battle!  This is what I put in mine to create the signature:  

Read my Challenge #1 story titled [URL=https://forums.nycmidnight.com/topic18251_post227894.html#227894]Dreams[/*URL]

You'll want to replace my link (in blue) and title (in purple) with yours.  Also remove the * (in red) from the /url - I added that to stop it from converting it to a link since the code tag wasn't preventing it.   



Edit: Intercepted!  lol

Question about the forums themselves. Is there a place where you can actually see all of your posts in one place? Most forums have that option but I can't seem to find it here. I have resolved it by searching for keywords if I can remember them, but it seems odd that there is simply no list of a user's posts available. Am I just missing it? Or is the easiest thing just to subscribe to the posts themselves?

Thanks!
