Bug Description


I can't edit my works (http://spreadubuntu.org/users/zhpopivoda) because "Your posting on SpreadUbuntu from x.x.x.x has been automatically flagged by our spam filters as being inappropriate for this website."

Can you fix this, please?

Thank you.

Best regards,

There was nothing sitting in the spam queue when I checked, so I do not know how to approve it preemptively.

Have you tried logging in via Lauchpad/Ubunto One SSO? I think that gets you around the blocker.

I just tried to edit http://spreadubuntu.org/en/material/unusual/lubuntu-clock and I was blocked with spam filter. And now page is blocked and content from page is lost.

I was tried to edit page from different IP but result is same.

I was able to fix that one, I think. Since the algorithm behind the spam filter is adaptive, I think it should be ok now.

I managed to edit 3 of my works and again I was blocked by spam filter. :)
I still need to edit 14 of my works. I just removing outdated links from description.

Given how actively you contribute. I have decided to make a new "moderator" role. The biggest difference is that they bypass the spam filter, administer items flagged as spam, and that they can change revisions. You shouldn't have any more issues with the spam filter.

Thank you for "moderator" role.
Now, all works perfect.
I managed to do everything what I was planned to do, and little bit more. :)
Thank you!
