Default Signature Question

I'm a little confused about how many links you can have in your signature. I had three links in my signature (my blog, a DT link, and a Challenge blog DT). Earlier this evening I tried to add a new link to my signature to indicate that I was now on the CAS Design Team. I got a message saying something like only 600 (I think it was) keystrokes were allowed. I have seen signatures with as many as five or more links. Why did I have a problem adding a fourth? I eliminated a few keystrokes and was finally able to get the fourth link to be allowed. Am I misunderstanding the message I received?

There is a total character limit and formatting (colors, bold etc) count. My tip is to use a link shortener like www.bit.ly to shorten your links and conserve characters!

I thought we were only allowed a certain number (2 or 3?) of offsite links as well. Has that changed?

The program doesn't catch that, but I had gotten a message from TexasGrammy about it in the past.

It's still all in the Forums at Splitcoaststampers, so I presume it's still what goes??
Quote:

Signatures

Signatures may contain a maximum of 3 off-sitelinks to blogs, shops, etc.
Promotional language and referral links are not allowed. Examples of promotional language include any call to action for a user to visit a commercial site, and include but are not limited to, phrases such as:
"Check out XYZ"
"Get XYZ at XYZ for less." Keep your signatures to 5 lines total. This will still give you plenty of room for fun and creativity.
No limit of number of SCS links as long as it fits into the line limit.
Keep signatures at or below a size 4 font.
No blinkies, pictures, animations.

Yes, thanks for finding that. I can never keep that one straight.
