    I don't get it. I make a post with no links, just regular text, and it keeps telling me that it has triggered the moderation filter.

    Is this some sort of trick to get us to pay for a membership?

    It took me ages of rewording just to get this post up....

    How do you know its a new filter? Maybe it has always been there. Some of your posts have just been "Thanks" or bumping old threads. Maybe there is some issue with how much or the quality of your posts. You are not allowed to just post "Thanks" in a thread so keep that in mind. There is a Thanks button.

    Your right, i dont know if its new or not.

    I just know that i wasent posting anything bad, and it still stopped me.

    Does it look for specific keywords that you cant post or what?

    We don't know since we don't have access to the back end of the forum. Only a moderator or administrator can answer and I doubt they have time for this type of thing. If the forum stops you from sending a post, take that as your lesson that you aren't supposed to be posting it. Don't try to "get around it" by using different keywords.

    As I said, maybe your account is flagged because it got reported for some bad posts. It can be lots of different things. If its still doing it 1 month from now, and you believe you have been making quality posts, then maybe ask. But your account is very new, no need to rush things. Just relax and trust the forum.

    I guess it just needs more time to "accept me".

    Thanks
