    You are not allowed to post links, images, blah blah until you've posted a few times

    Why am I getting this error message? I'm trying to post a thread without links or images and it keeps giving me that message. Please halp.

    You've gota have 10 posts before you can post links/images, it helps prevents bots advertising.

    Yes, but what I'm trying to post has no links or images. So I'm super super confused.

    I'm trying to start a new thread about an issue I'm having and it keeps giving me this error message. There are no links or images in that post. But for some reason I can post this thread and reply to others.

    Apparently I'm too dumb to use these forums, hah

    Thanks, I just feel like a huge derp because I don't see anything that could be misconstrued as a link or a picture in my other post. Grr.

    It might be something that was introduced to prevent the rash of advertising that has been popping up from new members. It's possible that the error message just don't include that information. If it continues to show after you've made 10 posts then I'd PM a mod about it.

    Ok, ty for the info. I think I'm up to 10 posts now. I'll try again.

    Same thing here, just plain text and get the same error, weird.

    Some characters in text will also be interpreted as links - for example, the '@' character.

    Yep, this is usually the issue (often in a CPU speed). The forum always interprets "@" as belonging to an email and blocks the post.

    Seems like an issue with email recognition. If you have a good regexp setup to recognize email addresses, this shouldn't happen.
    Because I want to say this every single day but don't want it to get a drag:
    1) The ingame store will only sell timesaver items. It won't affect balance.
    2) No, getting to 100 in half the time isn't pay2win. raids don't start until the second week, everyone has time to get there.
    4) getting charms faster is also not pay2win. getting those is easy, but not everyone has the time or want for dailies.

    Yeah, but it's built-in, so I'm not sure if we can fix it (or if it's worth the time right now given that we're still fixing a few last upgrade bugs and it only affects people under 10 posts).

    I'll ask about it after we finish that

    Sounds like upgrades....upgrades always unleash more bugs then benefits =/

    hey Ive been on the site a while and finally made an account (hurrah) but with this 10 post thing until you can link images and sites etc - what about forum sigs? it said i dont have permission for one, so is this unlocked at 10 posts as well?

    Yup From the FAQ:

    A: You'll need to reach a minimum of 10 posts before you're able to do any of the above, though please don't spam to 10 posts just to be able to do these things. This is set in place to help cut down on the amount of spam advertisers. If you need to talk to a moderator while still under 10 posts, you can PM Sunshine or Boubouille.
