I made a troubleshooting thread with links. At first I added spaces to the links as the newcomer faq instructed, and my post was still deleted. I assumed that maybe the rules have changed and that isn't allowed anymore, so I posted it without links and it was deleted again. It's happening about a minute after thread creation every time so I'm assuming it's tripping a filter or something.

    It may be a automated thing as posting links for new users always makes them look like bots.
    Forums are riddled by links to unsolicited websites and its usually done by automated bots in on themselves.
    Perhaps you should just state your initial issue again but this time dont post links, i know you are trying to reference your product or something but those filters are rather thick and then sometimes such threads are removed by  mods unintentionally.

    I tried again with no links and it was still deleted. Maybe a word is tripping it?

    Perhaps, I think you may have to PM a admin or mod here, discuss your issue and see if it can bypass this.
    Spam filters can kick in when you dont want them so sometimes a direct approach may help

    Hello apav11! Sorry if you were having issues on the forums. Our spam filter can sometimes filter out posts, especially if they have a low post count. I have made sure your account is whitelisted so you don't keep running into the issue.

    If anyone ever has a problem with posting a thread you can always reach out to an admin or a moderator. While us moderators don't work at EVGA we will pass problems along to get fixed since sometimes the filter can catch things it shouldn't. We really want the forum to be spam free but we also want new members to be able to post and get the help they require.
