Moved to My attachment and bookmark container
I have edited the initial post a few times today, but I always got a server error. I wonder, why you just reply today. Was this thread somewhere on the top of the list of the recent threads, before you have replied?
Before Chris has replied, this thread was not in my track list anymore. Why? And why do I get the following message, when I reload this page, after I get the server error (error #500, as far as I remember):
* Your Forum topic has been queued for moderation by site administrators and will be published after approval.
* Forum topic Arno Enslin's personal attachement container has been updated.
Yes, it is error 500:
Internal Server Error
The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request.
Please contact the server administrator, email@example.com and inform them of the time the error occurred, and anything you might have done that may have caused the error.
More information about this error may be available in the server error log.

I have trouble, when I edit the initial post, but editing this one is no problem.
Arno -- every time you've updated this thread lately, the new AntiSpam module keeps flagging it as spam. It's happened three times so far today.
Each time it gets flagged as spam, the node gets unpublished and held for moderation. That's why it disappears from your tracking list and you get a server error.
I keep submitting it as a false positive, and hopefully the algorithm will someday learn to stop flagging it.
Until then, you'll just have to be patient. Florian, me, and the others can't keep tabs on things 24/7.
This just popped up as the "newest post" when I saw it earlier today. That was the first time I saw it.
Thanks, Kent. At the moment it works. But a few minutes ago I have discovered, that I can create a blog entry. I think about moving the attachment container to the blog section.
To be honest I have long been wondering why you didn't put it there to begin with.
Now my blog entry is queued. I tried to move the container and bookmarks to the blog section.
If a member tries to spam the forum, it is banned, correct? And if a member was not banned, this means, that the member wrote something, that is related to the forum. So the new spam software should only queue those suspicious posts, that were written by new members, that had not post anything, that was forum related in a certain time period, three days for example.
Except from that I have edited my account a few times yesterday (the additional information). Whenever I have done this, I had to fill in all fields again, because all fields were empty.
By the way the link “View recent blog entries” should be moved next to “View | Edit | Track” in my opinion.
Yes, the AntiSpam is still not acting perfectly. I’m in conversation with Jared about trying to find ways to improve it’s behavior without having to ditch it altogether.
Ironically, Jared just turned off the AntiSpam for general forum contents, but left it on for Blog posts — at my request, since that’s where we get the most spam. And that’s right when you decided to move your container to your blog (which is what I was going to suggest anyway), so it got caught again.
It should be live now. The AntiSpam thinks that the kind of updates you keep adding are suspicious.
We’re looking into a plug-in that would allow white-listing, so we can get past false positives for long-standing members. Please be patient.

I don’t manage the site structure or features, I only act as a volunteer janitor. Perhaps someone at Punchcut will see this comment. Or you might submit the suggestion via the Bug Reports and Feature Requests forum.

I’ve asked for this bug to be fixed several times, because everytime I have to clean up SEO links in spammer accounts, I face this problem. So believe me, it’s 100x worse for us admins than it is for users.
You might refrain from constantly updating the main post in your Attachment and Bookmark Container blog node. Each time you do, it keeps winding up unpublished and back in the moderation queue.
There’s nothing I can do to stop that from happening right now. And I can’t spend all Sunday watching the queue in order to keep putting your blog back online.
Instead, you should consider adding any updates as comments in that blog thread instead, since those will now slip by unfiltered and not take the whole thread offline each time.
And instead of adding bookmark links in your blog thread, you might try the new Marks feature that Jared just added:
Uups. I will wait, until the bugs are fixed. I want to have bookmarks and attachments in the same box with the help of the list tags. I dislike the new feature, because I neither can group the links nor I can name the links nor I can mark anything else than the initial post of a thread, but at least in case of one of my links it shows to a specific post, at which the thread began to interest me.

Now I know, what you mean. There is a spam comment in my blog. I think about ordering something in that shop and let send it to a fantasy address in North Korea.
