Akismet has hidden your post?

First time posting since the Waypoint changeover and I keep getting a notice that says:


Our automated spam filter, [Akismet] has temporarily hidden your post.
A staff member will review your post soon, and it should appear shortly.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Anyone else getting this notice and any info as to why would be appreciated.

The automated spam filter is a bit overzealous on new users at the moment. Once you make enough posts it should stop being a problem.

We’re not having fun with it either, since we have to resolve every post the system flags.


Thanks for the info. I see what you mean. I just posted and got a Basic Badge and a notification that my new user status was lifted. Weird since I have had a Waypoint account for years, but I guess with the changeover everyone started from zero again.

Basically, yes. You’re a first timer as far as the new forum software is concerned. I’m not sure whether that’ll change once old post data is transferred over, but currently we’re all new here.
