WWWBoard FAQ (frequently asked questions)

Can I put html tags anywhere in my posts?

Usually No. You cannot use HTML tags in any field. This is basically for security reasons. Sorry.


Why do I sometimes get "ERROR: XX Second Post Rule" error messages?

There are some "anti-spam" features that prevent people from spamming the SpudBoard. If you see the error message when posting or replying to a post, then simply hit the browser "Back" button, wait the given time and try again. It might be frustrating, but the spam prevention code has been added to prevent abuse from those who don't share our passion. 


Why do I get an "Access Denied" Message when I try to post something?

Because either you, someone using the IP address you currently have, or someone from your class B or C IP block did something bad and are currently banned indefinitely. If you think there is a mistake,  then contact us, and we will consider your request for removing the ban. To check and see if you are banned, check the current ban list.


Why hasn't anybody answered my question(s)?

Most likely because they don't know the answer or haven't read it yet. 


Why are there colons in the message when I try to post a followup?

Colons appear in the message dialog box when you try to follow up on a message to indicate that those lines are quoting the previous document. Leave them there if you want people to know who is saying what.


Why didn't my post show up?

Your post most likely did not show up, because your browser did not reload the page, it simply pulled it out of cache. Please reload the page in your browser and it should then appear.
