You can post and attach screenshots and text files and zips using the Upload Attachment tab under where you type posts. You just can't have web links in your post for the first day (keeps spammers at bay).

Your posting here shows you have entered the forums, and yes you can not post url's in your topic for a day due to security against bots. You really should not need to anyway. There is an attachment link at the bottom of your posting window where you can provide logs, Etc..

Help me, please! I'm trying to post my first thread but I keep getting same error, even though I don't have absolutely no urls in text and in Subject: You must be a member for 1 days and have 1 posts before you can post urls. I then tried to send a PM to moderators reporting this preclusion and I get similar error: You must be a member for 5 days and have 5 posts before you can post urls in Private Messages.
I'm glad that I could post this same post you're reading, I thought I couldn't do it! Now I'll just have to wait 1 day to finally post my thread, which took me several hours to write!

There must be something there that prevents your text from being getting through the filter. Could you copy the "offending" text in a text file and attach it? If you can't get with a .txt extension, zip it.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.

ok, thank you for replying! I attached both the PM I tried to send to Perryg (and to the moderators) and the new thread message, I couldn't send or post neither of them because of this impenetrable and absurd error!

I believe it's the "I checked virtualbox.org website" reference that got the filter going. Funny thing? You didn't even need that...

I can't post this here now (check attachment text)! I get same error!
You're right, I totally missed that! I must be tired, I even skipped dinner because of this and it is 03:30 AM at my location! But what about the PM to Perryg text? What could possibly be the url there which triggered the filter? That's totally impenetrable and obscure!

It's OK, it's 05:30 where I am ;)
I vaguely remember the you can't have the word "URL" in the text. You could have "U R L". But, I could be wrong...

:idea: I figured that out seconds before you post it! It must be it! "UR*" (I typed this replacing * by L just to see if I could post it)! Mystery solved.

You login is managed through the Oracle Single Sign on system. I would expect that if you logout then click login again when it takes you to the SSO page you can manage your password from there.
