Anyone know why this message might pop up? I tried posting a message to another forumer and it has to be approved, same with one of my discussions.

Is it because the discussion and message had a hyperlink? Too many charectors?

    Yes, I do believe that this is vanillas automatic spam protector thing at work.

    I see, that's most likely why. Thanks Spyro and Awesemeo.

    Edit: Scratch that, I tried posting the thread about six hours later and i'm still recieving the same issue, @lisa?

    -bump- still unsure why I can't post the discussion.

    It's weird for it to have persisted this long! But instead of hoping she'll see your notification, you might try emailing directly to deepworld@bytebin.com and explaining the issue. Good luck, hope it gets resolved soon!

    The same has happens to me whenever I try to post something with a link, so I think that's the cause. It's probably to keep from malignant links from being spread. (Eg. viruses, malware, etc.)

    Yeah that is Vanilla's spam defense. We have no control over it. I can try to toggle one thing but it might do nothing.

    @Lisa this might be a stupid question to you but I'm still gonna ask. Does Vanilla own deepworld? Or like do you work for Vanilla?

    Vanilla is the company that provides this forum for Deepworld. The secs pay a monthly fee to keep it up.

    This. It's just a forum host that has preprogrammed, with varying degrees of customizableness based of package, that we use for the Deepworld forum. I work for Bytebin, but Deepworld specifically. Does that make sense?

    It's the same thing with walls posts. The only type of HTML you can exclusively post without toggling the spam "protection" are image tags.

    All others, including links, will be marked for spam unless balanced by a rather sizable amount of extra characters. For the music videos on my wall, I've often had to post short descriptions as the title was "too small" to be considered "not spam." (And, thus, triggering the filter)

    Yeah it really sucks. I've had some html heavy posts that took a while to write up get eated by the filter. To the best of my knowledge they never showed up and are presumably floating in post limbo.
