Self linking is strictly prohibited in the guidelines.

sportingo -- your website actually looks fairly interesting. It's just that the guidelines prohibit self-linking, which is a pretty sensible policy when you consider the opportunities for abuse otherwise. That said, I think it's generally considered acceptable (and correct me if I'm wrong, anyone else who knows) to throw in a pertinent link to your own site in the comments section where it is relevant to the discussion at hand (as you did in a recent cricket thread), although the unwritten rules of this site suggest that you acknowledge that you are linking to your won site ("As I wrote on my blog the other day...").
