    Alright so a couple of hours ago i signed up that account and i wanted to write a decent introduction but i couldn't post it, why? Because i had that message: "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 here"

    Alright so anyway i just lost 20 minutes to write a decent introduction and to introduce myself in a good way that will never be posted even though my introduction DID NOT contain any of these forbidden items. But ok that could be worse. Now i wanted to post a thread in the Black Hat SEO section, i spent times writing something HQ, but here again the same message pops up, while my message DOES NOT contain any of these things listed above AGAIN.

    So yeah i did just bought that 116usd upgrade to have the right to post something, but i think this is not very fair nor well made, that's just to force people to buy that membership in my opinion. Anyway, now that i bought it i'll wait for the upgrade to come and i won't be concerned anymore by that soon, but that's not really nice for other members that have interesting things to share but can't spend that amount of money. Fixing that would be a good idea in my opinion. Thank you.

    Hopefully this thread won't be block by that super filter.

    Even though you are ready to spend $$$ , you cant get membership. You must be active in this forum for some days. Also must be interact with other users usefully. If there is not such a filter spammers will spam this site to hell..

    What do you mean by "you can't get membership"? I mean that phrase states clearly that if i want to get rid of this limit i just need to upgrade, and that's what i did. So my payment will be rejected when they'll see i just arrived? Yeah i completely agree that such a filter needs to exist to prevent spamming as you said, but in that case it needs to work PROPERLY i guess, what i see here is just a filter that blocks posts that shouldn't be blocked because there's no reason. The only thing i see here, is that people needs to buy that membership to be able to actually post. That's kinda dumb for a forum. I'm sure i'm really not the only one to have that problem.

    Ahah, well i think this forum is way more HQ and contains better content than any forum about that domain. Even though that problem i'm currently facing and that guy that just tried to cyber-kick me in my "introduction" i'm convinced i'll have a great time on BHW. But some stuffs needs to be done about that filter seriously. But can you lighten me a bit on what "smartboyhere" said? Is it true? Thank you,Wiz!

    Think yourself, Since you are legit guy you tried to post some intro about you but what spammers will do? they simply advertise their website/product/maillist , etc with no cost. So to avoid this there is such filter.. so they wont pay so no spam.. Have you got jrvip membership? Still confusing if you dont have 100 quality posts and active for 3 months you can't get membership..

    So you're saying the new member filter is broke? Huh. Well seeing as you claim that your problem is that you have to pay to post (instead of maybe you know getting out of the new member zone instead of immediately looking to pay your way out), shouldn't the new member filter be rich?

    The filter is there for a reason. Hundreds of thousands of members join and don't have a problem.

    In your other thread you even said you have an old account here - so you made it through the system once, right? Also, you might want to PM a mod about your other account and have them ban it. Might save you from issues down the road...

    Yeah i do understand why there's such a filter there's absolutely no problem about that, but i never tried to post any "URLs, email addresses and images", so i really don't know why it's blocking me.

    Well the main problem for me is that filter yes, but i never even tried to post these forbidden things, that's the most annoying part actually. And also as you said, the fact i need to pay is also kinda annoying yeah. Simply because it's written that if i want to remove these limits faster i need to donate which i did. I don't want to wait several weeks to be able to post a decent thing, so i paid that's it.

    The funny thing is that i tried to post the thread i made with that old account, which is actually more than one year old, but it didn't let me ahah, probably because i didn't post much i just used it to buy products around the forums. But yeah you're right i'm going to contact a mod about that but i can't right now as i don't have 15 posts.

    If you think about it, it isn't hard to figure out that the list includes more than what it shows. You just triggered the filter. Write your post in notepad and paste it in... then edit it or break it up into multiple posts.

    Welcome to BHW... ;-)

    Yeah i'm aware of that, but you're right i didn't break it into multiple parts to see which one causes that issue. I'll do it when i'll have the time to re-write it and also the will! Thank you.

    No, what I was doing was throwing a bad joke about a poor filter which you throw money at and still isn't getting rich. You'll see me doing that often.

    Not throwing money at people, or things (unless it's that new Bentley SUV, it seems to good to be true), just making bad jokes.
