I have multiple Stack Exchange accounts but I can't post more than 2 links because I don't have enough reputation. On Stack Overflow I have 10. It sucks I want to post nice detailed answers which link to many useful resources. Is this something that can change?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
The simple answer is that the new user restrictions restrictions are there to help prevent spamming of the site.
You need to gain reputation in order to be trusted, by the system, not to do "nasty" things. The theory is that by participating and earning reputation you are investing something of yourself into the site and therefore be less likely to abuse the site later.
Regarding your update. When you have 200+ rep on one site if you reassociate your accounts which will give you a 100 point bonus on all sites thus lifting you out of the "new user" category.
In the mean time just post the link as naked text. Someone will edit your post to bring the image in line (if that's appropriate).
