Account Verification required to be able to post links and graphics RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • As an Anti-Spam measure in the forums, Microsoft recently introduced 'Account Verification' requirements  to be able to post links to the forum.

    Verification occurs automatically after a period of time (currently about 10 days) - but you can request (almost) immediate verification by posting a request in the appropriate 'sticky' thread here.... http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/threads

    While waiting for verification, if you wish to post links, you can 'break' them by replacing the link in one of the following ways.

    Normal link


    'broken link'


    Normal link.


    'broken link'


    In an MGADiag report there are a number of links in the Licensing Data section - you can simply delete these links completely. (so far, I have never discovered a use for them!)

    Happy posting!

    No - I do not work for Microsoft, or any of its contractors.
