Why do I get "Your post has been flagged for moderation" all the time???

I have been trying to post in PAD the last 12 hours, and continue to get the following message "Your post has been flagged for moderation." Why is that? There is nothing spectacular about the post, and I have now tried this three times...

Using SmugMug for photo sharing, I have posted several pictures on PAD, and that doesn't seem to represent any problems...

    It chooses random people I suppose. I had it happen muliple times in at least 3 times that I can remember.

    And what, do I wait for a Mod to release it, or do I keep posting? I can obviously post, but not on PAD...

    I had the same problem when trying to post using Smugmug's "Embeddable" sharing links. Do not use their the embeddable sharing method, because it will get your posts flagged. Use Direct links and use the forums picture button to add photos. It won't allow for clicks through to your image at larger size, so you'll have add a separate link to share a larger version, like I do.

    This forum will automatically flag posts with links to known photography sites that are not sponsors from what I've noticed. Not sure why it happens to my photos, since I have my own domain name.

    If I take a good photo it's not my camera's fault.

    As I pointed out on another thread, it's pretty easy to make the picture itself the link to your full sized image
    Think of PAD as a thumbnail.
    You wrap the <img> tag in an <a> </a>link tag.

    <a href="https://www.yoursite.com/fullsizephoto.jpg " >
    <img src="https://www.yoursite.com/fullsizephoto.jpg " width=640 >
    </a>

    You can substitute a smaller version of the file from smugmug on the img src= and eliminate the width= option for faster load/render time. I'm happy to explain further if this doesn't make sense.

    While that works it always seems to create a false image, aka the "?" above the linked file. Edit trouble solved, it's been 8 years since I worked with HTML, getting a little rusty.

    @Killerbob, use the "quote" function to see how I've done it with your last image

    Heh, that's why I always put the line breaks in like my example so I can see that everything is nested properly.

    The "funny" thing is I did exactly in the third post like I did in the previous two, and only the third time didn't it work. MsMoto said OK to it, and it posted just fine... Go figure...

    Good question.

    In my case, you might get the following answer from the same question from Msmoto.

    "I have no idea, it must be an electronic glitch. I looked and it is not in the moderation file.

    There are times when internet connections create some type of error message on the pages, this happens with almost all forums I have been on. Usually if we close our browser and then repost after copying the original to a word document to hold it, it will come through. Also, as ISP s will change your IP address, unless you have a static IP address, we occasionally see an IP address which has been blacklisted in the past, this creating issues.

    Whether you post on NRF anymore is entirely up to you. This forum is made up of primarily folks who simply want to have some enjoyment sharing their thoughts about photography."

    I've never been 'blacklisted' from any forum.

    My post was about how much I enjoyed my new Nikon 105mm macro lens. After Msmoto's explaination, I decided not to try to repost my comment about how much I liked my new Nikon 105mm lens. As it was entirely up to me.
