I use this website often when I want to shorten an ugly url.

You don't really need it that badly here anyway since an "ugly url" can be "hidden" in the [ url=http://<ugly url> ] tag (without the spaces).

fair enough, I was mainly trying to use it this morning since I had a fairly long url with many different weird characters in it and I didn't think it would format properly.

I found an answer to a question I had asked that I thought I could share with others, but when I wanted to post the URL of the supplier for what I needed the name was blanked out, making the link useless. I decided to delete the post, but why are some parts suppliers OK, and others banned?

I can't find it in the forum rules but I think you need a minimum number of posts before you're perrmitted to put any urls in your posts.

Yes, 5 posts before a URL cound be posted.

If you had this and the URL was ****, it could be that the vendor was site spamming and had the name added to the censor list.

Thanks

OK, thanks. I am a newbie here so perhaps I can bring up my post count to five by posting irrelevant replies like this.
