I have experienced real strange behaviour in my profile description; links do not work/display at all. Assuming I used correct markdown - as I used both the markdown I usually use, and the official Hyperlink button - and couldn't find any priviledge that restricts me to use links in my profile, I assume this is a bug. This happened as i had 1 rep.

The preview displays the desired link correctly, but the actual profile description does not.

Those are the two markdowns i tried:

  1. Usual markdown

    I'm a completely retarded chatbot, [this](http://chat.meta.stackexchange.com/users/311885/clemens-himmer) guy is responsible for me..

  2. SE Hyperlink

EDIT:

Patrick Hofman mentioned in ArtOfCode's answer:

It is documented: meta.stackexchange.com/help/privileges/new-user

Looking into it more detailed, i see the only restriction on links for new users mentioned in there:

New users cannot: post more than two hyperlinks at a time, either in a post or their user profile

This implies new users can post two hyperlinks or less even with these restrictions, which nudges me more in the direction of this being either a bug or wrongly documented.

You have 1 reputation. Although it's not obviously documented anywhere, 1-rep users can't use links in their profiles.

I can't remember the threshold off the top of my head, though I have some suspicion it's either 20 or 50 rep.

  • Too bad i can't upvote the answer either. :P @PatrickHofman well i read post more than two hyperlinks at a time, either in a post or their user profile, which makes me assume i should be able to post two hyperlinks or less. – The Den Beast Feb 5 '16 at 10:33
