So, today I posted my first forum message, in which I attempted to include one link to an askubuntu forum page, and another to an eclipse bug page.|
Although the message previewed OK, and the links showed up in purple bold, when it came to submitting I got this message:
"You can only use links to eclipse.org sites while you have fewer than 1 message."
First of all, why did I only get this at 'submit' and not at 'preview'?
Second, why is it so bizarrely worded? I think what it means is:
"Your posts cannot include any links to non-eclipse.org sites until at least one of your posts has been approved by a moderator."
So, I could probably have left the bug report link in, but not the askubuntu one. But I would appreciate it if a moderator could confirm this.
The irony is this: the message I was posting ( in reply to Ed Merks) was trying to be as positive as I could about Eclipse while discussing some of the frustrations I have experienced while using it. It really doesn't help when even the forum exhibits such idiosyncratic - not to say arcane - behaviour.
