should go to meta.stackoverflow.com –  ChristopheD Jan 21 '10 at 23:31
    
Pretty self-explanatory -- until you have a reputation of 10 here, you can only post 1 link per question. Also, this belongs on meta. –  Kaleb Brasee Jan 21 '10 at 23:31

LOL, so someone upvoted you -- now you can post multiple links. –  Kaleb Brasee Jan 21 '10 at 23:31

It means exactly what it says. The only term that might be foreign is reputation, and the faq explains that (about halfway down the page).

Spammers thrive on getting things for free, so if you make them work a little (i.e. get 10 reputation points by answering a question and getting upvoted), they will go away.

Did not know this existed but it's actually quite clever. –  ChristopheD Jan 21 '10 at 23:41

In an effort to keep people from just posting questions with links to their website in them, new users are not allowed to put more than one link in their questions.

Feel free to just post the URL in your question until you get enough reputation to post more. One of the more experienced users will most likely edit your question to make it an actual link for you.

Back when I had a lowly 0 rep it didn't even allow me to post the URL as a non hyperlink. –  Justin Jan 21 '10 at 23:40
