Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post...!?

Hi,
I’m new here and already have a problem with the forum.
I tried to post a question and add two example links in it, but I can’t create the topic… I’m rejected with this error message :
Sorry, new users can only put 2 links in a post.
my post has only two links. so what is the problem, the forum or the error message…???
thanks.

[edit] seems that I can’t even put one link…!?

The forum software is fairly suspicious against new users for antispam reasons. However the “new user” stage doesn’t last long - spend 10-15 minutes reading the forum and you’ll be upgraded to a less restricted user class.

This seems to be a spam protection strategy. After a few more posts, the limits get released.

UPDATE - seems that reading the forum for a couple of mins is sufficient, as Jakob explained.

ok, thanks.
but maybe the message from the forum in this case should be modified and don’t tell I can post two links, but none…
