  • The 180-Second Rule: An error given to New Scratchers / New TBGers who attempt to post more than once within three minutes.
  • Image embed host restriction: "To embed images on the forums, you need to upload them to an approved image host, like tinypic.com. Please update your image links or remove all BB code [img] tags." This is to prevent image spam.
  • Image embed restriction for New Scratchers: New Scratchers / TBGers are not allowed to embed images in their posts. This is to prevent image spam.
  • URL linking restriction for New Scratchers: New Scratchers / TBGers cannot post URLs to websites other than Scratch in their posts. This is to prevent spam from spambots or other sources.
  • BBCode syntax error: This occurs when a BBCode tag is misspelled, misplaced, or absent from the post.
  • Character limit error: When a post is longer than 65535 characters (64 KB), it cannot be posted.
