I'm a new member and I've been trying to post for the last week, but everything keeps getting stopped by the spam filter -- comments, everything. I'm not even sure this will post. Was I marked as spam permanently or something?

Yea, having the same problem. Yesterday I posted a reply in the morning and later on in the day and they still haven't been approved. Does every post get caught in the spam filter, or is it just for the newcomers with a low post count?

So I have to just wait around for a month to get my post up? The marketplace is the only reason I even bothered to make an account.

I don't make the rules, but I enforce them, so yes.

That's such a stupid rule. I just want to pay someone to make me something, but apperantly that's to much to ask for.

Honestly you are being very rude about it. You can do things like advertise in a da account, or even PM the people asking about commissions they wanted. It's not a "stupid rule" either. It's a security issue foin case of spammers which this site actually get more of then you might think. Just calm down and wait. It's one month, it won't kill you. The rest of us had to do it. There are hundreds of members that do commissions that waiting just fine and look, we aren't hurting from it. You are just way too eager about it.

EDIT: I just realized you want to have something made, rather then make things. You CAN pPM members you know..You don't have to post an ad to get a commission from someone. Go find a commissioner and ask them yourself. It's much faster

Sigh, I wanted to post it here so I wouldn't have to go looking around for someone. And I mean admins have to allow posts for new members, shouldn't that be a good enough spam deterent? I'm not trying to put out thirty advertisements for knock off websites, I just want to make one thread trying to get something made.

It's more of a 'gaining reputation' thing with the whole "30 Days, 10 Posts" rule. Though honestly that probably and has not stopped people before from being bad businessmen/women. I would love to see the old Marketplace come back with a system of reputation kind of like eBay. Anyone can post sales or make requests, but bad feedback would be allowed and not able to be deleted by the seller or commissionee who fell through on their end of the bargain. This way everyone knows what they are getting into.

Yea, seconded!! So many people have been saying they want something like this. It would make things way easier. I mean yea, the old market had a feedback system that sorta worked that way, but not one could find it because you had to go throw like 5 pages of things just to get to it..

The issue with post moderation is twofold.

First, there is a spam prevention system in place that throttles new posts and comments if you are a new user. While this is understandably frustrating, the amount of spam it prevents is astounding. Around a year ago we were getting hit with 300+ spam comments/day and sometimes 20-30 new spam threads per day.

Some measures were put into place to circumvent it, but unfortunately the most effective measure was to put all new users into a moderator queue that does place a few restrictions on posting for the first few valid posts, and also blocks posts with links and images. Spam went from a massive nuisance to almost non-existent (at least from what got automatically posted, we still see some spam in our mod queue, so it's working).

I know a lot of people mention things like IP blocking, but spammers almost always use dynamic IP's. Blocking the IP can mean blocking other people as well (and the spammer will just log in with a different IP a few minutes later - sometimes automatically in the case of spam bots).

And for the marketplace, the 30 day / 10 post rule is there for one main reason - making sure you have at least a basic, searchable history on the site before you post in the marketplace.
