This is a test post.  The original text has one space after a period.  The post button was press immediately after typing - no drafts were saved.

Here is an image link, written with no spaces at all, which shows up just fine in other forums:


Let's test spacing after punctuation.  All punctuation characters are written with one space before and after them.

This is a second test post.     The original text has one space after a period.     Three drafts were saved; in each draft, another space was automatically added by the software after all periods.   

Code: [Select]
This is some text in a code block. Extra spaces do not get added automatically here when a draft is saved.

The forum code changes the address from

Code: [Select]
hxxp: s3. postimage. org/z97e1ja9v/Aquilla_Roma_components_list. gif (after one draft or posting; additional drafts add more spaces).  

Let's test spacing after punctuation.      All punctuation characters are written with one space before and after them.

These observations apply to posts I make in Chrome (most recent update), Firefox (most recent update), and IE (older version).

It's a measure applied to new accounts automatically, to curtail spam bots. Once you've made (ten?) posts you'll be just fine.

. . .  Aaaand post #10.

May I congratulate this antispam feature for inducing spammage?

(Yes, it's a clever feature, but I spent 30 minutes doing Internet searches and testing three different browsers before spending another 15 writing up and testing the posts at the top of this thread. )

Technically, you are supposed to make valid posts rather than just trying to bump your post count.

I would have recommended messaging a mod or searching the forums rather than writing the test posts etc.
