    Default Why Don't My Posts Appear

    I don't understand why when I post a message or start a thread it never gets placed on the site. It just says that a moderator has to review it but it never gets on the site.

    Only one of my posts has ever actually appeared on the site.

    The thing with having posts approved first needs to be taken off!

    Thumbs down

    I completely agree. Apparently you have to have a certain amount of posts to be able to not have them reviewed. However, this thread will recycle to the bottom and not appear new for a good week or two. You probably won't see this.

    *Dear Moderator: Why do you have to review my posts? Also, I e-mailed you guys like a week ago and have still yet to get a response about this. What's up?

    Wink How many posts?

    It takes a lot as they must be relatively sure you are not some kinda "scammer / wako" or something.

    Be patient, and maybe before the world [as we know it] comes to an end on Dec. 21, 2012, you will have a post or two on here.

    I completely understand the need to moderate and review new members as I've seen abuse in other forums from immature members, but how long does it take? It seems like these forums lack moderators with a good online presence no? It's been over 24 hours since my first post and it still has not been approved yet.

    Should either:
    a) Implement more moderators, especially senior members of the forum that are proven to not be idiots.
    b) Require capcha codes in order to prevent scammers.

    But having to review a certain number of posts is quite ridiculous.

    It really irks me as I wanted to participate in some interesting topics but by the time my post would show up it would be completely meaningless. It is hard to participate in a discussion when your side never gets heard...

    For what it's worth, just a note of X number of posts are required before moderation won't be needed would be helpful. I make posts that take days before they ever show up.

    Maybe some guidance on how this works for us newer members?

    there have been complaints in other forums of Solicitors sending PM's informing them of a Viagra sale....lol

    I also think that there is such a delay because this forum is such high volume

    Yeah, me too. It would be helpful if there were some mention in the FAQ's how many posts it takes before a user doesn't require moderator approval.

    Ok, listen up!

    For me after about 10 posts(approved or not) they would show up w/ out having to be checked by the mods.

    So, if your posts don't show up KEEP POSTING. After about 10 posts they will start to show up.

    Hope this helps.

    Default Where are they?

    OK, I understand why forum posts from new members go through an approval period. In the long run probably better off everyone on here.

    WHY, it is now over a WEEK and posts I have submitted still are not on the board. Not fair to me, not fair to others seeking information.

    Not a good way to run the board. I am getting to the point where I will stop coming here.

    Does this count as one of my "probie" posts?

    I don't want to post BS or irrelevant thoughts just to get my pertinent questions on the board. Seems like an irrational system. If you want to stop the crazies who come on and post stupid sh*t, just delete their threads after its happened and remove their ID from the site. Seems an easier way to go about it. Admin please respond. Thank you.

    I can understand the 'probie posting'....my old forum used to get swamped with adds for 'sex leg' and other crap. I don't have a problem waiting for my posts to be reviewed.
