Hi and welcome!

Basically, we have a really strong spam filter so all new members have to post a certain number of posts before getting permission to add links or images. It just protects us from spammers (which are rife, thanks to Village coming out).

It's nothing personal - just make some more posts and it'll let you attach images and links before you know it :)

It's either 5 or 10. But if you don't want to wait, put the image in this thread and I'll approve it for you (provided it's not, y'know, pr0nz or something).

I know it can be a pain to have restrictions, but we get so many new users every day who just want to spam, so we've had to make blanket rules just in case.

It was just an idea to see if you'd be able to post an image that just went to moderation - I've got Steve to take a look at your profile and he says that because the above post was your 5th one, you should be able to include images now.

Try it and if it doesn't work, we'll get that sorted out for you. I appreciate your patience.

This is the only way I can add photos too.

I think using an image host like Imgur can work better? I'll have a word with Steve and see if he can shed some light on it all. I'm literally the monkey here - think we need the organ grinder to sort this one out...
