Ohdeedoh has a fabulous, active community, and we appreciate all of you and all that you add to the comment threads. But we need to issue a friendly reminder on self-linking signatures in comments. We notice that many community members sign their comments with a link to their blog or site, and we would like to ask you to please not do so. Please only leave a link in your comments if it is germane to the post topic. See below for more clarification.

If you would like to include a specific link to your blog or another website site that advances or augments the discussion in a comment thread ("I used this same color in my son's room, check it out on my blog here..." or "You can find this product even cheaper here..."), that is fine to include. But please do not include an automatic signature or purely self-promotional link with your comment. This makes comment threads unnecessarily long, and there is a place in your personal Apartment Therapy profile to add a link to your website. Please use that to share information about your own site. Comments are for commenting only!

As editors we do not have the ability to snip or edit comments, so comments violating this aspect of our comment policy will be deleted. (You can view our full comment policy here.) The comment threads are for interaction on topics, and we appreciate you staying on topic! Thank you!

(And watch out for new and improved community features rolling out sometime this year; we are working hard on making our community an even better place for our members, and to facilitate sharing information and links of all kinds!)
