    Just a title to get your attention. Hello there, Im stefyx, Im from a small european country and found this community while in the middle of trying to build an ecommerce business.

    I have written a really long post in the Making Money category, I must have been writing it for the last hour, asking for advice on ecommerce, only to find out that I cannot post it, because it ticks of the spam system.

    Duuuh, ALL I talk about there is money, euros, free giveaways for customers and profits. Of course it ticks off the system.
    But what should I do? AM I SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT RAINBOWS AND UNICORNS UNTIL I GET MORE POSTS?

    Sorry for the angry tone, but Im really disappointed and have just wasted a lot of time. This is really discouraging new members.

    Worth a shot: Could an admin be kind enough to lift my interdiction? Id still like to post what I have written. I wouldn't be writing here if I wanted to spam anyone.

    You haven't wasted your time. You just have restrictions as a newbie, as we all did.

    Save your work and post it once the restrictions are lifted.

    i think its a spam measure to stop non-valuable sopammers on the board, make quality posts, and you will be ok after 15 posts.

    BHW and the world have waited all these years for your wisdom, we will wait a few more days!!

    That's what they all say.

    If you can't see the benefit of this forum and are not willing to make the effort then you are free to go elsewhere.

    I am sure that what you had to share was great and I am sure it will still be great when you have met the posting requirements.

    Don't start threads, try to increase your post count by adding value to current threads.
    It doesn't take too long. Good Luck

    If your questions were along the lines of 'I am new here, please tell me all the money making secrets', I will definitely be contributing to the thread when you are able to post it.

    Before I ever post anything anywhere, I always highlight and copy it first, and sometimes even save it to a text file.

    I've had posts I took 3+ hours to write, or went away for a while and came back to post, only to get the message "token has expired." All of my rage.

    You learned like I did, by getting pissed off. Yay, misery loves company.

    Try to make your thread again without mentioning certain specifics. Remember to "save" the post|thread first. I think once you get to 15 or 50 posts things clear up a bit.

    Please understand the limitations for new members are here for a reason.

    Okay guys, thanks a lot. Didn't mean to sound like an ungrateful c**t. I'm pretty impressed by how quick I got so many responses.
    Thanks again :*

    ohh I know what you mean. And then you hit the back button and everything is erased. And you're fu**ed :))
