on the urlhasbeenblocked issue, the question I had is why don't I get some type of notice when I'm posting(like the repost warning)?

It just inserts the urlhasbeenblocked without alerting the person posting.


From my recent mod alert of my own post:

dgleeson Post Universal Music Desert Weekend Getaway Sweeps 9/18/16 Other

I posted the link from the rules: Http://urlhasbeenblocked/DesertWeekendSweeps, (I've updated now) did not get any pop up or anything when posting it (why?) But when it got posted had the "URL has been blocked." URL.

10:41 PM Closed acesmuzic Mod Alert closed with message: probably because of the short link. we do not allow those here and that particular one may be blocked. i see you've posted the expanded version so that's fine - acesmuzic
i can't explain "why" other than that because the system is not designed to do so. it's a good idea though! i'm not a dev so i'm sure how feasible it is to do so, but free to make a suggestion in SIS. Smilie

Don't know if it makes a difference, but my question(and 90% of my posting) is to C&S.
