Did you:

1. Register an Account at BlenderArtist?
2. Activate said account via e-mail?
3. Sign in to said account?

Try posting without links or pictures. If you absolutely need to post a picture, attach it withe the paperclip icon. Here is why this is by the site admin:
Let me first say that the usability and friendlyness of blenderartists.org is a great priority to me. I know we have a great responsibility to Blender users.

Let me clarify the moderating situation of the forum:

- users who register at the forum must pass a bot-check (so-called captcha)
- users with less than 5 posts may not post links, the post is blocked
- some keywords in posts will cause the post to be blocked, these keywords include certain brand names and spam-heavy words like pills

The last 2 precautions were implemented because we saw a big rise in spam, to a point where the forum was becoming un-usable. I am very aware that these precautions can cause frustration with users and it is certainly not my intention to keep these measures for a long time. However, I felt they were necessary to protect the forum and it's users.

You are correct in stating that the workforce required to handle the moderation queue is currently not available. I chose for a very effective, yet slightly clumsy way to prevent spam that unfortunately also targets users who mean well.

I apologize for the inconvenience of these measures. I can only promise that I am working hard to improve this situation and find a better solution to our spam issues.

Sincerely,

Roel "Goofster" Spruit
I hope this helps you! :D
