I know this is nobodies fault but my own but I need to vent. I just spent 10 minutes posting a question about my new setup which included links to the product manuals that I am using and the specs. Turns out that because I don't have 10 post that I can not make a post like that. But what really ticks me off is that I was not able to edit what I attempted to post to make it suitable for the forums. I lost everything. I will end up trying again but my post will not be very complete.

I had the same problem. I had to be creative in posting links so that the BBS software would not recognize it as such.

I know that it is a pain, but it often helps me to copy/paste my reply somewhere before I hit the "Submit" button. That way, if my post gets lost or messed up, I can re-paste it and don't have to re-think the whole post again.

Yup I always compose long posts in a text editor and paste it over.


When I read your thread I was going to offer to post the original for you assuming you had a copy. I assume you do not. :(



***
Please keep in mind, before you came and this policy was created there was more spam. Almost every automated bot uses URLs and if they get denied 100% they will never reach the postcount required to post URLs. As a bonus the site staff doesn't need to manually delete them. Its only something like 10 posts too, so not difficult to aquire.

With the quality of your past posts I doubt anyone would care if you just "BTT" this 3 times and get the 10 posts you needed. I'm not staff though so use your judgement.

Sorry about your frustration but we had to implement that feature due to robot porn spammers littering the forum with links. May be we can do a better job of informing new members about that restriction.
