I’m not sure if this is a bug or if I’m missing a setting somewhere.
The following four items landed in my Moderators Inbox earlier today:
Clicking on the bottom one in the list,
New user martincook posts blocked due to repeated links, says:
Which is fine.
However, if I click on the top post in the list,
Llyn Y Fan Fach Reservoir & Drive 21 Sept 2019” was flagged as spam the message contains:
Each of the other messages also referenced the youtube domain as being the culprit.
What’s confusing me here is that I have already whitelisted the youtube domain.
And various sub-domains for it too:
The other mentioned setting, that of
newuser_spam_host_threshold is currently set to 3:
Which incidentally, is how many YouTube links this new user posted before all these notifications arrived in the Moderators Inbox.
If it helps, the new user made the following posts at these times:
08:21 post contained a link to:
08:56 post contained links to:
09:06 post contained links to:
As you can see, they posted 3 links to
www.youtube.com and 2 links to
dronescene.co.uk so 5 links in total, across three posts.
Is this whitelist not being honoured?
Am I missing another setting somewhere that may be related?
Have I misunderstood how this works?
Any other suggestions?
I’m happy to spend some time trying to repro over on try.discourse.org if someone can let me know if any domains are whitelisted over there and what that
newuser_spam_host_threshold value is set to.
I’m running Discourse v2.4.0.beta5
