External and internal links

I'm working up to start my fourth plog on this forum.
I'd like my signature to contain all my plogs.
CN has a limit of 2 external links for a rookie like me but all my links are internal.
Is this intentional?
Did I make the link in the wrong way? Or did I missunderstand what external means?

@Disciple of Nagash, the forum FAQ says the following:

"What can I put in my signature?
The allowed elements in your signature are based on your posts (and as such the group CN places you in):

New Bloods: 1-49 posts
  • 200 characters allowed
  • Maximum number of links: 1
  • Maximum number of lines: 8
  • Maximum number of images: 1
  • Smilies: allowed

Undead - 50-999 posts
  • 300 characters allowed
  • Maximum number of external links: 2
  • Maximum number of lines: 10
  • Maximum number of images: 3
  • Smilies: allowed
True Bloods - 1000+ posts
  • 500 characters allowed
  • Maximum number of external links: 5
  • Maximum number of lines: 12
  • Maximum number of images: 5
  • Smilies: allowed"
What is the intended meaning of "external links" as opposed to just "links" in the New Bloods group?

Edit: For what it's worth I seem to be able to add more than 5 links in my signature, regardless of if they're pointing to CN or someplace else. Mods might be in a different group from True Bloods though...
