Link Spamming warning
« on: November 11, 2011, 12:31:35 pm »
Hello.

I've been installing a core into virtual box and I thought I'd include updated network settings based on my (seemingly successful) configuration in virtual box on the wiki page.

I've tried updating the page, however it keeps on telling me that I'm link spamming and to contact an admin.

So here I am!

David.

After setting up an account on the wiki it takes a while for you to be allowed to add links to a page. If things stay strange for more than a week, contact bongowongo.

Hmm.  I wasn't trying to add a link.

There was an IP address in there, but no links of any kind  :-(
