Why can't I post all of a sudden?

Hey why can’t I post all of a sudden?

So I’m a total noob, & I have been happily posting my work on my Meng Magach tank, and able to post what I like when i like. Today I try to post, and I get this:

Sorry, new users can only put 5 embedded media items in a post.
Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post.

That’s not what was happening when I posted before! What gives?

Strange …
What you could do is to increase the amount of posts you read :wink:
" Get to trust level 1 by…

  • Entering at least 5 topics
  • Reading at least 30 posts
  • Spend a total of 10 minutes reading posts"

You have read 23 posts so far so you have 7 more to go, spread the reading over 5 topics and spend 11 minutes doing it.

What was the content of the last post you attempted?
You have posted many images already so that shouldn’t be the issue …

Ah - ok, thanks so much! Doing that now, all the best and thanks for taking care of this total noobie!

The discourse implementation has all of us scratching our heads and wondering what’s going on.
I hope my advice solves your problem, the designers of discourse do say this:
“At Discourse, we believe reading is the most fundamental and healthy action in any community. If a new user is willing to spend a little time reading, they will quickly be promoted to the first trust level.”
