UBB code eluding me.....

For some reason I can't get my hyperlink to work using this ubb code. I want to create a hyperlink on some given text. In HTML (because that is the closest facsimile I know), you would say:
Click here for my games
Now I read the UBB code and I thought I did it correctly, but it's not working. In my signature, I wrote:
[url = Click]http://www.geocities.com/mjbruesch/games]Click here for my games [/url]

Click here for my games


It's not working....Any suggestions?
I'll put my sig on this post so you can see what I mean...

[url = My]http://www.geocities.com/mjbruesch/games]My Java Games, I'm quite proud[/url]
I corrected the link to add a proper use of the url tag. Edit this post and you'll see what I mean--Carl

Well, after reading my post, the HTML worked but the UBB did not. Should I use HTML from now on in my sig?

Oops the link in my signature does not work either , you must type it as follows :
#url=www.javaranch.com+Mr Plotzeling#/url+
Replace # with [ and + with ]

< a href=""> doesn't always work the way you want it to.
[ url=http://...]...[ /url] (without the spaces between the [ and what follows).

Whoa, I got all the big guns out to help on this question. Alright, I'm a bit confused, but I'm giving it another shot. I messed with it a bit more, no spaces after = , we'll see what happens. Thanks for all the help gang!
