    Have the rules for linking articles changed along with the horrid format change? I have tried to like helpful articles for others and my post is not showing up. Of course I can't really find anything so... however I do not want to be in violation of some new rule (or even an old one that I may have misunderstood). Please advise.

    The rules on linking have not changed.

    The rules appear as a hyperlink on the bottom of every page - no change there. The rule in question states:
    Please do not post links to other discussion forums, blogs, personal sites, photos, videos, or other non-authoritative sources. This includes Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and similar sites/apps.

    USNWR can be linked. News sites, college sites, and the like can all be linked. Sites that do not fall under those headings are filtered. Not a new policy.
