Question about posting privileges

Hello Mods,

Not sure if this is where I should post this, but here goes.

I have been trying to post a picture of a part I am in need of. Being new, every time I have tried to post a link, or even an img tag to post the photo, I get a message that says my post is too spammy for a new user. I understand what you guys are doing, as I am a 9 year member over at fiero.nl, however what do I need to do to be able to get the privilege of posting photos? At some point I want to post photos of my car, but as it is right now, I can not even put a photo on photobucket and have it show up on the forum.

Thanks for reading this and for having this great resource!

Mark

probably just a few more post in general on the board before you become 'trusted' as not-spam...

just describe the part as best you can, some members are really good and may post a pic of what you are describing to double check.

I believe you need to have 5 posts before you can put up pictures. I'm not 100% sure though.

OK, that explains it. I have more than 5 posts, but have only been a member for 4 days. So tomorrow I should be good to go.

I'm new to the board. It seems when I try to post, I am getting kicked out and sent back to the login page. I realize I need 5 posts, but is it normal to be re-directed to the login page?

This sounds like security issues on your local PC... Your browser is not saving your cookies properly or for long enough and it’s logging you out. I check off the login automatically so I don't get logged out, and I also don't sit idle in a reply box or on a new topic box for too long since they do time out. If you’re typing a really long message my suggestion is to copy the whole txt box and refresh the screen and re-paste it before clicking submit to ensure you don't lose what you wrote.

I just did a lengthy post without having "automatically log me in" checked off and I did not get booted when I clicked submit so this is why I always say it’s the end users PC timing out or dropping the credentials somewhere.
