[Sticky] Why can't I edit my posts or send PMs? Blocked if have less than 5 total posts
@all, Q: Why can't I edit my posts or send PMs? is a frequent newbie query.
This is because the forum software anti-spam module prevents edits and PMs if you have less than 5 total posts.
The edit button and PM functionality appears after you've made 5 moderator approved posts.
I think there are better anti-spam methods. I'd like to contribute my build, especially because I modded my Core X, it's semi-passive, dead silent on desktop (even when charging) and very quiet during gaming. But this is my first post, so I won't be able to upload pictures..
I did my first post some hours ago in this forum, anyway, frequently reading here for some months now.
The post does not go online, when I'm not logged in I cannot see it. On top there's an orange exclamation mark together with "Awaiting moderation". Does this mean that an administrator has to manually confirm my posts (because I have less that 5 at the moment)?
