This is an information post.
As we are a fairly large sized forum, we do receive a lot of spam. This is a considerable problem and causes a lot of wasted time having to remove it all. We've found one of the most effective ways to significantly reduce spam is to prevent new users posting URLs and hyperlinks. This makes posting any spam pretty pointless.
For this reason:
- If you have less than 250 rep you can't post any URLS.
- If you have more than 250 rep, but less than 500 rep you can post plain text URLS
- If you have more than 500 rep you can post clickable URLS
Sorry if this causes any problems, but is a necessary measure.
