Limiting "new users" to just 2 links in a post is exactly how you keep newbies in a community from writing properly sourced and cross-referenced first posts.
Those of you who run a Discourse forum might want to keep that in mind.
@xahteiwi I see both sides of this; on the one hand, perhaps they're trying to prevent spam accounts from linking to inappropriate or malicious content, but as you say, this definitely has its downsides.
I'm reassured to read, though, that "Admins can change these limitations by searching for newuser and first_day in site settings."
@xahteiwi oof, yeah, I see your point;b it's definitely sounding like a far less sensible restriction in that light! I wonder how they decided on this!
