Post by Jedi_Kit_Fitsu »

For some reason cant reply to a thread of mine?

Also, hey all, been a long time

EDIT: figured it out, apparently when I tried to use italics the server doesn't recognize it?

There's an anti-spam bot on the forum that seems rather particular about certain things. Sometimes it takes issue with a single word in a sentence and I have to go back through and post what I've written piece by piece until I found the one word out of hundreds that it doesn't like. ><

Perfect example, I began a sentence with the word "aside" and the forum didn't like it.

Edit:

Omg, I just tested it out and it's not "aside" that's the problem. It's the combination of "aside from" and apparently only at the start of a sentence.

Don't worry, I can't post either... But I think that's due to laziness over spam bot protection...

Just really, really determined. ><

I haven't been having any problems lately, though. I think the bot eased up off the restrictions a bit.

Until you use the word oracle, apparently.

Yeah, I don't remember writing or seeing the word oracle on that page. We certainly haven't used it lately, I think.

I remember typing it recently. Don't recall if it was part of an ic post or an ooc message. But the legacy of the Oracle of Vidunatru must remain strong! :bothan:

Okay, so this is ridiculous. If I made a link and write "this", it refuses to post. But if I write "this post" or similar, no issues.
