Q: I'm a new user, but I cannot post new threads.

A: There are two main reasons that this may occur.

Reason 1: You didn't confirm your email address

When you sign up for this site, you are required to enter an email address. A confirmation email is dispatched to that address for verification. You must open that email and read the instructions. If you didn't get it, check your spam folders and such.


Reason 2: The forum software thinks you're a spammer.

If you're a new user with no posts and you're trying to post threads with certain keywords, the software will flag your post because it thinks you're a spammer. In addition to keywords, it doesn't like it when a brand new user is posting a link or an external piece of media, as it assumes that it is spam. Note: The contents of your signature are just as important as the content of your post as far as the filters are concerned.

The way to remedy this is to make a few valid posts in some threads. Telling us a little about yourself in the Member Intro Thread is a good place to start. Once the system is happy with you as a user, the filters will become far more lax, and you will be allowed to post links, external images, etc.

Alternately, maybe you can post in certain sections, but you can't post sales threads. In that case, click here: http://www.evoxforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=30520
