    Bug Report Spam error message

    Discussion in 'Support & Feedback' started by boyh11, Sep 6, 2019.

    I've been trying to post content to the Novels sub in the Workshop, but keep getting the following error message.

    "Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator."
    Any help?

    I suspect this is because you are still very new - you may find it goes away after you've made 5 posts

    Alternately do you have external links in your post or very spam like words like Viagra or Free ?

    If you post the content you were trying to post in the workshop in this thread I will move it into the workshop as a new thread, which will solve the issue in the short term while we work out what the problem is

    We have a spam filter that looks for certain patterns that are commonly seen from spam bots. These includes things like very new members trying to post content containing links, images or certain phrases. Looking through the logs it looks like it's the word "prada" from "Prada Galleria" that is triggering the spam filter, so this word has presumably been used by spammers in the past (or could be linked to spam websites and such).

    Replace that word with something else and try posting again. If it still doesn't work I'll help post the content for you.

    Thanks, guys. "Prada Galleria tote" might have done it. I changed it to "purse" and that seems to have gone through.
