    Hi all,

    I'm new here so forgive me.

    I've written out huge posts, like 800 words if not more to give away tips and advice to my friends.

    However, when I post it refuses to post. It gives some reason that makes no sense.

    I have tracked it down to my post containing words that may not be allowed. So far I have noticed these words trigger it:

    Edit, I can't even show you what triggers it.

    there are loads and loads. And when you write a huge post I just don't want to filter through it and filter out stupid stuff like that.

    These words are baby stuff that kids say in nursery, I'm sure that grown adults can handle them.

    Is it possible to relax the swear filters? If not, can you at least give a list of words when the forum refuses to post. Highlight them in red or something would be even cooler.

    Spending 30 mins writing something then finding I can't post it is super annoying, I'm only trying to contribute.

    thanks

    I think this is due to your account being quite new.

    You could message a Mod and ask for their input, or failing that, save the file and then post it as soon as your account is old enough for the restrictions to have lifted.

    It won't be long before you can post, It's just the new account status. Stops spam etc, or at least reduces it. As long as when you do post it, it doesn't break the rules, you'll be fine.

    I don't know man, I've been known to go on ranting for hours at people who make me mad.
