    I'm trying to respond to a thread I started, but it keeps blocking me:

    The following errors occurred with your submission


    • You are NOT allowed to post URLs, email addresses and images, until after you have been a member of BHW for a little longer. We did this is to cut down on spam. Thank you for understanding! If you would like to remove this limit faster please consider donating
    • You are trying to post a message that has triggered our moderation system. Double check our rules to make sure you are posting something that is appropriate. We don't tolerate any selling, posting contact information, urls, swearing, giving thanks ect... Please understand this is to protect our community from spammers. Once you have been a member of BHW for a longer period of time this limit will be removed. Thank you!If you would like to remove this limit faster consider donating

    The thing is, by response is normal -- no links, no / even! What's going on?


    Also, how can I modify a previous post? My contact info is in it by accident... can I donate to get to a level where I can modify my own posts?

    Thanks guys

    You're a brand new member and we get an awful lot of spam so you've got the highest level of restrictions on posting at the moment. This includes certain words that tend to appear in spam posts for example: domain names, spammed sites or keywords. We can't provide an exhaustive list of the blocked words as this tends to defeat the purpose of having them.

    You can try resubmitting the post as often as you'd like taking out any words that you think might have triggered the spam prevention. Once you've made 15 good quality posts, the restrictions are lowered gradually, up until you've got 100 posts at which point you have the same restrictions as any other member.

    In regards to modifying a previous post: If you can't edit the post yourself yet, you can click on the "report post" underneath it and submit a ticket for a mod to edit or remove the post.

    Didn't see a ticket come in from you - can you try reporting it again and I'll keep an eye out?

    I had this issue also, logging out and re-logging in sometimes does the trick
