    I've tried about 5 different times to post legitimate, lengthy responses to help some people out and I keep getting the stupid triggered our moderation system message. Nothing out of the ordinary, no links, no spam, NOTHING! I can't even respond to my own thread in the introduction section. I think I'll go back to being a leecher rather than a contributor, considering I can't contribute anything! It will be a miracle if this post even goes through. Waste of time!!

    It happens to every newbie. The system is in place to fight the spams. It may be difficult but don't get frustrated and leave :)

    Get your post count up, spend some time here and you will get more privileges. You just joined this month and have 2 posts, what did you expect?

    Spammers love this forum so the admins have to be careful.

    Speak to a Mod about your difficulties and try to turn it down a couple of notches on you'll get tossed out.

    This also happened to me when I was new :) Hell, it was annoying, but as time passes and you build up some posts/thanks/rep things get a lot better. You will also be able to post links :p Just try to make your posts simple until you build up some post count.

    Thanks Gintoki. When I post only a sentence or two, it works.

    I use to get that too. I wrote some lengthy replies, with some links but the spam bots didn't like it and asked me to change some words. The privilege of posting long post with links and pictures will come. You see my avatar up there? I just got them about 2 weeks. Then a signature. I think BHW has a good system in place. If you're new (stranger) you wouldn't talk that much, would you? Take the time. Keep posting.

    this industry isn't for people that give up so easily. far larger hurdles are ahead of you than simply posting on a forum. ;)

    I think text only works fine but you can't post any links.
    Just reply to other shares which are method to you saying how helpful it was.
    After 15 posts you can post links. 15 posts you can do it in a day. Just post
    good replies.
    You are doing fine in this thread.

    It's not THAT hard to build up your post count. Just don't post swearwords or links and you should be fine.
