Default Bypass Yahoo Answers Lvl 1 hyperlink restriction

:( I guess not , well its worth shouting out ^^ and pyros move this to free guides I guess.

ok, ever since Yahoo implemented the new anti-spam policy... all level 1's links are not hyperlinked. This, of course, pose a huge problem.

Today I just found a way to bypass it.

Whenever I post a YAHOO hyperlink in my level 1 answers or question, it gets hyperlinked. Then I wonder.. if all Yahoo links are allowed to be hyperlinked, how can I insert my own URL so that I can bypass it?

And I just got the answer:

Type this:
http://rds.yahoo.com/**http%3a//YOUR-URL
[Remember, it's not colon but %3a]

i.e: http://rds.yahoo.com/**http%3a//www.google.com


NOTE: The %3a is actually the code for the colon. If you do not use the %3a, the link will not be hyperlinked.

IF YOU VISIT THIS LINK DIRECTLY, YOU WILL RECEIVE THE "This link is not authorized by Yahoo!" warning.
But if you post this in Yahoo Answers and when users click it from there, they will NOT see the warning at all - the user will be redirected to the intended URL of yours smoothly.

Um, what you explained to me in PM didn't really do anything.

I tried his "tactic" and it didn't make a difference. The link was "clickable" but the ref=numbers part was plain text so you wouldn't earn refs. I also tried just posting my referral link and it worked for me. I didn't get an error message or anything. Once again the end of the link was plain text.

So there it is.
