  • Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.

Hello,

I'm trying to create a post to share a tool I made for EU4 to the community.
However, I'm not allowed to post since I'm getting this error message:

Your content can not be submitted. This is likely because your content is spam-like or contains inappropriate elements. Please change your content or try again later. If you still have problems, please contact an administrator.

I'm only active on reddit, so I might be an untrusted user in the paradox forums.
However, my account is linked to Steam and I have clocked in 100s of hours in EU4 using this account, so I'm not a spambot :(

Is there anything I can do?

Just got the same message and am looking to see what caused it. I was guessing there’s a time-out for newbie posters, but it’s been 38 minutes since my first post.

There are restrictions around posting links and images for new accounts for spambot prevention/deflection. These will be removed automatically based on post count, however please don't spam. I'm sure there are plenty of threads you can contribute to!

We don't make the exact limits public to make sure the protection works as well as possible :)

I know the whole Paradox system is flawed.

For one, the message isn't informative, it should say something like; "New users are not allowed to post links to the forum. Please remove the links or wait until you have enough forum credit." And the system won't even allow you to quote posts that have links. So, you have to look at the quoted content and remove the links. Crazy, I've never seen a system this poorly designed.

I am also currently having trouble posting in the stellaris suggestions forum
The reply I am trying to post is 10 lines of pure text (no links, images or anything weird), yet when I try I get an error message:

sure would be cool to be allowed to participate in this community without arbitrary and secret limitations

pretty insane to block paying customers from utilizing your platform

literally giving no other option than to spam to try and find this moronic and secret limitation

pants-on-head stupid

I'm also having the same issue, my post is just text and a spoiler tag (surely that's allowed?)

The error message leaves me with more questions than answers?
What elements are inappropriate?
How is my content spam like?
How do I get in touch with an administrator? When I found an admin I clicked on his or her profile and it said it was hidden, should I open a support ticket instead?
Do I just get in touch with a moderator instead?

I can see what this feature is trying to do but it's not very well executed.
