The Abuse Filter got me!

I spent some time yesterday/today writing a much more fleshed-out and up-to-date version of the JDate doc page, but when I tried to post it the Abuse Filter got on my case and said I was posting repetitive bot content. Now I've lost my editing privileges and I'm not sure who to talk to to get things straightened out. Can anyone assist?

On the page https://docs.joomla.org/User:Abuse_filter there is a link to a page that should help you to restore your privileges:

If you do accidentally trip this bot, you'll have to go to Special:Preferences and re-confirm your email address.

I did read that page, but the part of my preferences page it seems to refer to does not exist. The only link I see is to change or remove my e-mail address, and when I attempt to use that, it will only accept a new e-mail address. The warning I got also mentioned that I can be added to a user group that makes me immune to the bot. Is it possible to have my account reviewed so I can be placed in that contributor group?

What is your username at docs.joomla.org? Can you login but not edit?

Docs username is the same as here: GregJPreece. You're correct, I can log in but my editing privileges have been revoked.

Hi,

I edited your permissions. Could you please confirm me if you can now edit?

Thanks

Yes, I am now able to edit! Thank you very much. I have posted my updated version of the JDate documentation, and I am now eyeballing the component tutorial. ;)
