Problems posting on Sketchbooks section

Postby Raze » Sun Jul 03, 2016 1:44 pm

Hey everyone! I've just created an account here and was wondering how can I post on the Sketchbooks section. I've been having a problem where I get a message saying I need to use attachments, which I am doing. Or maybe I'm doing something wrong. Could someone help me here?

Heya, sorry for the late response. I'm technically also not the best one to answer that.. Maybe the files you're using are to big?

Thanks for the reply! :) Yes, I noticed that the files were big, but after resizing them I'm getting this message "The forum thinks you're a spammer :3 Pls use attachments if you're trying to post images. Noobs can't post links yet, or sound like they're selling stuff"

I'm using the attachment tool, so I don't really know what I'm doing wrong.

Hmm. Very strange. So.. Please don't think I'm trying to make you sound like an idiot (I'm not) I'm just trying to figure out where things go wrong since I never habd any problems

So when you post: You use the "Upload attachment" underneath the post right? You select your file and click on "add the file" and when you're then trying to post it, it gives this error message?

It that correct so far?

Yes, it is indeed what is happening. I just tried it today again, and the same message popped up.

That sucks. Hmm I'll try and contact one of the mods maybe they still know some of the people who maintain this forum. Sadly I have no experience in this technical stuff since I'm literally just another user but hopefully we'll find some help.


It might take some time until they respond back.Sorry you're experiencing this inconvenience.

Heya!

So, the forum used to get a lot of spammers so there is a little security device in place.

Basically for the first 5 posts you have limited access to uploading pictures and/or posting links.
It also wont let you post if you use certain key words that make you sound like you are trying to sell stuff.

circumventing that is pretty easy, just post a couple more comments and then you should be good to go!
(go give some feedback on the sketchbook section *wink wink*)

Oh, I see. That makes sense. I guessed it had to do to the fact I was still new here. But yeah, thanks for the answer! :)
