    You have 24 hours in which you can edit. After that, you will need help from a mentor. If the error is serious, try PMing the mentor in charge of whatever forum you posted the topic.

    If the post is over 24 hours old, you cannot edit it. If you can you link to the post here and show what you want edited, we can edit the post for you.

    Edit: or pm the forum mentor as sylas said, or you can send your request to the mentor's forum by hitting the "report post" button on the left.

    To add a signature so that it shows up automatically, you need to either be a contributor, or be a designated Homework Helper or Science Advisor.

    Lol, to ask Mentors to edit a post where you promote parascientifica dot com, "The top paranormal resource"... And it is not an accident, you post a link in every third post.

    Most are sources, one is an add posted as an improvised sig, but I don't see the prob as you also have a whole link bunch in your sig.

    Links to paranormal websites are not allowed in the main forums. It might be allowed in the Skepticism and Debunking forum as a point of discussion, but not as a signature. Please check the S&D rules to figure out when it might be allowed as a link for discussion (like your current "teeth" discussion thread there.

    I've edited the link out of your posts in the technical forums.

    Well not really promote, just keep it in a sig as I do on all forums.
    Would be nice if youd let me have a text link xD
    But I'll stop wit the random link postings if I really have to.
