 When a member/subscriber publish more than one link in an update, he got
 an error and the update is not published.
 If he post only one link, the update is published without problem.

 If the site admin does the same thing, the update is always published,
 whatever the number of links.

 I got this behave with all WP themes. I see also on 2 lines:
 There was a problem posting your update[...]

 Seems coming from bp_legacy_theme_post_update() in buddypress-

 This error msg is fired when activity_id is empty. I don't understand the
 relation between a user status and the creation of an update when the user
 is logged in...

 May not be a bug, but i'm interrested to know the reason of such a
 restriction. And if it is a restriction, it would be better to show
 something other than "There was a problem..." and also, to let the site
 owner decide if he want to apply a restriction or not for what's new

 To reproduce this:
 login as subscriber and publish 2 links. (on profile or group)
 Then publish only one link.
 Logout and login as admin and do the same.
