I've spent the last 15 minutes trying to write a forum post asking about the Import Repository Wizard. When I preview everything looks fine. When I post I keep getting this:

You can only use links to eclipse.org sites while you have fewer than 5 messages.

I have no links to eclipse.org and removed an img tag to an attached screenshot. I've tried posting the entire thing in a code block. I have fewer than 5 messages in this forum as of writing this post. Nothing worked until I deleted it all and wrote what you're reading now. What's causing this?

Perhaps your screenshot was referencing some other site? Without the actual contents it's hard to say what's going on. I've seem many first posts have an attached screenshot, and they were OK.

Sorry you're having these issues, but we get tons of forum spam without these silly restrictions.

Let's try again and see if this works.

The last post is what I was trying to upload. Weird. I'm going to try posting the topic again. Thanks for replying.

Richard, I see in your successful post about ECL that it contains the text "http://" - maybe that was getting unintentionally caught in the "external links" net.

I think you're right. I tried again without "http://" and it worked. Trying it with quotes in this post to see what happens.

Ok, so no posts without "http://" in quotes. Got it. Thanks! Smile

No, that's not what the rule is. The rule is: you can not post any links to external sites until your account has 5 or more posts. Links to anything on eclipse.org is allowed at any time. Quotations don't matter, either - I was just using them to indicate the portion of your message that might have been a problem.
What I was speculating is that the code to detect external links might have seen your http:// as a link, which might be something the webmasters can fix.

See that message count next to your name in your post?

Thank you Nitin.

Do you have any workaround for this?

Do as Denis suggested, and post meaningful things.

The rule has been relaxed to one post (was 5 previously).

perhaps, your content is not appropriate or meaningless so moderators edit or delete your post. Try it again with something more worthy!

Hi There

Remove links which start with http.. Then it will work and you can post what ever your topic.

cheers...!!

In other words, don't send a clickable link. Instead of posting h t t p : / / www.wfu.edu/~moran you just post www.wfu.edu/~moran and let anybody who really wants to read it copy and paste it into their browser with the ht... stuff added in front.
