    While you are building up your posts to that golden number of 15, there are some things that you can’t do that the system will spot. These things will result in an error message and your content will not be posted. The reason that we enforce this spam filter for your first 15 posts, is because we get inundated with people registering bot accounts and posting spam URLs, so we're doing our best to weed these accounts out.

    This spam prevention system is triggered by several things, including links, and words or phrases that are often used by spammers. For example, things like domain names, spammed sites or phrases like "skype" or "contact me".

    Once you've made 15 good quality posts, your content will not be subject to the spam management filter. So while you are really new, keep your posts introductory, without any links, and you should be fine.

    Lol I think that's one of the spam accounts the OP is talking about.

    Seems like BHW got an influx of spammer accounts in the past few days. Lot of random/repeat posts and threads. Strange...

    I feel like BHW is the most strict forum with the spammer

    Same problem, I have made useful software and want share to other members through the thread creation, but BHW doesn't allows me to do that, tried to remove URLs (in my case there was not real URLs, it's just examples of software work), not works.

    Dear moderators, is that acceptable if I will send you thread content and you will post that? My thread contains no ads and only 1 external link (to download software from free file hosting because BHW not allows to upload 53mb zip archive), just useful software for SEO needs to clean duplicates for link list. So many efforts from my side to post this content and still no results :(

    Update. Resolved, not actual now, post can be removed. I have bypassed filter.

    This is pretty funny, it's a site on how to build links and teach people how to automate this stuff. Maybe these spammers are trying out what they learned on here!

    I guess that is a smart way to keep out bots. I wondered before why i wasn't allowed to post what i wanted to post.

    Do you need to write 15 posts?

    Yes, as stated in the OP, once you have 15 posts you will no longer be checked by the spam filter.

    Is this the same for PMs? I had someone send me a PM last night and it tok me about 50 tried before I could get past the filter or whatever, I eventually did it by not quoting his reply to me?

    Yes it applies to PMs as well. There was probably a phrase in his message that was setting off the spam filter when you quoted it.

    Wish there was a better way for you guys to authorize people. That would be awesome. So that they can quickly be more involved with the community.

    You cannot respond to hire a freelancer or want to buy threads unless you have an upgraded membership.

    Please don't do that via PM as that causes us to have to issue warnings and nobody wants to issue them and nobody wants to get them.
