    Can't post in the general chat

    I cannot seem to post in the general chat form.

    Everytime I try and post I get this message:

    To prevent spam, you are only allowed to post URLs to other sites after you have made more posts to the forum.
    But none of the message has a URL link in it.

    Update: My post in the general chat, seems to have gone through this time.

    It sounds like you most likely had one of the text strings which the forums identify as part of a URL contained within your original post, so the forum software incorrectly asssumed you were attempting to post a URL as a new user and disallowed the post ( an anti-spam measure to prevent advertisers signing up and spamming the forums before we locate and remove their accounts ).

    Sorry about that. If you can recall the original text of your post which wasn't allowed, please feel free to email it to me at and I'll take a look to see if we can improve the way that URLs are identified. Moving this to the technical support forum.
