I posted a thread in Pike and Shotte subforum on Sunday and I was informed it would have to be approved. Has it failed the approval test? If so, can you tell me why?January 2, 2020 at 10:14 am #173128
I believe the forum software automatically flagged it as spam because of the html codes visible in the post.
I have approved it.January 2, 2020 at 4:04 pm #173140
Thank you.February 29, 2020 at 4:32 pm #174719KonradParticipant
I have a same issue, i posted a thread (in General Discussion) about winsor&newton markers, if anyone use them for painting miniatures. Thread was visible till I edited it, and now its gone.March 2, 2020 at 3:03 pm #174779
Sorry Konrad! Sometimes the spam detection gets flagged when a post links to an external website.
I have approved and will monitor.April 1, 2020 at 10:35 am #176402Greg SParticipant
Is there any kind of notification? I’ve posted a few things in the last few days that just seem to vanish into thin air, either with links or image links.

I guess that why my post on my Napoleonic Portuguese disappeared without a trace after I submitted it then, had a link to my blog in it.April 27, 2020 at 5:46 pm #177422
I have approved it, the system treated the link as spam.
Sorry about this.

I posted another thread in Pike and Shotte on Monday that is still awaiting approval.May 6, 2020 at 7:13 pm #178089
I have approved!May 7, 2020 at 1:19 am #178093
Thank you. Any way to get around requiring approval for this kind of thing?
Edit: I just tried to edit it to get the pictures to show and now the thread has disappeared again.

I suppose my last post is in the spam box at the moment.
Not sure if it is linked to the same behavior but all my externally hosted pics don’t show anymore for quite some time now.

Koin Koin, I investigated your image issue. The site is configured to download all images/etc from external servers via HTTPS secure connection, if this is not possible then the external resource is deleted. When i manually tried to download your images using HTTPS instead of HTTP it failed to download, this is why the forum cannot download the images.
I have therefore updated the server to allow HTTP image downloads from your server – so everything will be visible again.
Enjoyed looking through your Blood Red Skies photos!June 29, 2020 at 6:31 pm #179503
Thanks for the update, unfortunately I missed it but seen that pics are ok now.
I can’t force https on my side but it should be how things should be done to avoid you to lower forum security.
I’ve just post a reply in the BRS forum (rules topic) and the post is still invisible while I appear as the last poster.
The reason I suspect is one of the link I put in it. One is the BRS site, the other to another forum topic.
EDIT: and thanks for the planes 😉

Another post waiting for validation or stuck in the spam box.
I replied to the BRS Yak1 or 1B thread (I appear as the last poster in the thread list) but the post doesn’t show.
It may be due to 2 links I put in it, but one is to WL store and the second to the BRS official site :/
