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

    http://www.example.com

    'broken link'

    hxxp://www.example.com

    Normal link.

    www.example.com

    'broken link'

    xxx.example.com

    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.
