    The anti-spam filter is really getting annoying. I cant post a god damned thing proactive. But I'm sure this pointless post will work just FINE.

    The filter will be lifted after enough time has passed. Is it that important?

    It is important honestly. When I first came here I >>DESPISED the auto-mod system and it nearly drove me off this forum permanently.

    The system isn't set up or explained properly. I understand the no posting links and swearing but the system will block you for NO REASON AT ALL. For instance, if you're a noob and just try to make a long post, 90% of the time they won't go through.

    I have a habit of writing long posts. When I came here nearly every single one of my posts were getting blocked. Then I'd go and read the rules, come back and read my post and there wasn't 1 SINGLE THING I was doing wrong. I wasn't linking out, wasn't swearing, all I was doing was trying to contribute 100-300 word posts.

    What's worse is when you spend a whole hour writing a really great response just to have the system flag it. Then you NEED to get it through cause you're already invested in the post, but no matter what you remove or reword it still doesn't go through. That's why when noobs complain about the system I support them 100%. There are specific things that trip the filter that aren't listed ANYWHERE on this forum. And we really need a sticky that fully explains everything you can and can't post as a noob. Cause fast forward to this present time and I still can't tell you why I kept tripping the filter. I started to suspect there was a character limit for noobs but I was never able to narrow down what the limit was. All I know is if you're a noob you're restricted to writing really short, meaningless posts otherwise the system will flag you.

    That, and or a total post count. I initially thought it was the long, so even attempted one word and was flagged for that too... They've made it as murky as google's algorithms ...

    An update to the policy would be nice, as you've just described the EXACT thing I'm going through.

    Honestly, I am unfamiliar with what this post is referencing. Anyone wanna spoon feed me what the anti-spam filter actually does?

    I would go with not declaring that or even hinting at it. Lol

    Well, you can clearly see that the anti-spam filter knows something about him. :)

    Got the same issue with my first few posts, also started a thread, seems like the staff is aware of that problem and that some users never return to the community after that but its probably worth the blocked spam posts.

    Once you reached 100 posts you dont have to deal with the moderation system anymore
