    I've tried several time to make a post in classifieds section that doesn't have any links... but the error keeps saying: "As a new user, posts cannot make posts with links or images! When you reach the required number of posts, this filter will be lifted. Contact Phases if you need to bypass this filter early." Again, no links, no images, nothing like that. But still the error.

    Thoughts?

    Welcome! Send a private message to Phases.

    The system prevents new users from posting links or images to help prevent spam.

    Looks like you've been around a while (so I hope you aren't a spammer)! To bypass it, shoot a PM to Phases (Click this LINK). He'll be the one you need to get around it.

    Posting a followup... I'm told this post will lift the filter.

    ALSO: can someone also reply to this thread so that I know my email notifications are working? (email notifications weren't previously working because the email server wouldn't retry grey-listed email sends... i've since attempted to fix that on my email server for this address and would like to get new email notifs... hence I'm requesting a new reply to this thread... thanks!)

    fwiw, side note: androidforums.com wasn't allow me to initially post in non-intro forum (The Lounge) something even without links, albeit it was a complex, heavily-formatted (bold-ed and underlined text and such) post. but no links. couldn't figure it out. hence the title on this thread.

    all posts now work tho... given i've presumably reached the "min post requirement"...

    None of this makes much sense to me. I'm not supposed to use links? What's a link? Like I said,I know nothing....I just want my volume to work. But T Y everyone. I'll learn.
