    In conversations with other forum members and can't seem to reply. No matter what I type I get this 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."

    And I can't seem to start new conversations either.

    We are aware of this issue and are looking into it. Are you still unable to send PMs?

    Just tried to send a PM and it worked. So I think I'm good now.

    Not sure if I'm supposed to start a new thread or not but I'm currently having this exact issue. I'm unable to start a new conversation and am getting the same error.

    It has been happening to all users with less than 5 posts. You have 3 posts right now, so post 2 more times and it will fix itself :)

    This may relate to usergorup promotion. I don't recall offhand, but possibly new users are placed into a "new user" type usergroup that disallows posting links, creating conversations, etc. Once the user hits 5 posts, they're automatically promoted to a new usergroup "registered" or something.

    Alternatively, it's a spam setting somewhere. Regardless, it's not a bug, it's by design. Just need to find the right buttons back stage.
