If certain project links are blocked, it's usually because the project ID resembles a phone number.
A project ID is the part of the numbers in the project link.

Project IDs that resemble phone numbers will be blocked by the filter in an attempt to block advertisements.

Instead of you contacting the Scratch Team, I'll just report this topic to them so they know.
Usually, this is a more direct and fast method to get a reply from them!

EDIT: I keep getting ninja'd by people today for some reason…

If you keep posting the same link over and over again, the filter thinks you are a spammer and might reject your comment. Is that perhaps what you are seeing?

I've received the spam warning before and they are 2 different warnings. Also, I've realised that the IDs are phone numbers, and scratch don't want us to give personal information.

Perhaps that's what's going on…which link are you having trouble with?

If it's true about phone numbers it means every studio created with the current series of 800**** studio numbers is going to be getting warnings if you try to link it.

I can't post the studio link for your band studio, it seems that /1880000/ is what causes it to trigger the filter. If I remove both of the /s from it it works.

I expect it's something to do with the phone filter, isn't 1-8xx used for some phone numbers in the US? I would suggest just removing filters for stuff like that, but maybe keep the general 10-digit number filter for now.

Yeah, that's what's doing it. I've shut those filters off for now - it should work for you. I can't promise that they will stay off though - if we start getting spammed again, we will probably turn them back on

I am now unable to post a link to another user's CC, which I wanted to advertise for on my profile. The project number is 96148883. Do you think that could be causing the problem?

Hope I've helped!

OK, I just posted a link to a studio. Now you post it and let's see what happens.
it only works in forums. I can't do it in comments.

I don't think anybody can do it in comments.
I can… you just do the same thing as in the forums! btw you can also link like This on the forums(not in comments though), just click on the chain in the upper part of the screen or use this code:
[url=put your link here]Your text to link here[/url]
You can also color links like this:
[url=link][color=color] — Colored link, but the underline stays blue
Example: My profile

[url=link][color=color][u] — Colored link, with colored underline
Example: My profile.

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity, pain… To feel the freedom that comes from being able to continue to make mistakes and choices - today I choose to feel life, not to deny my humanity but embrace it.
