Hi,

 

I've registered in these past days and tried to post in the say hello page and with a normal post in another section but nothing happened and I'd like to know if I could post or how could I check if there is my post and I just didn't see it.

Thanks.

Cheers.

Roberto

Your first post on the forum requires manual approval, and should now be live.  Future posts will go live instantly :)

Me too. I posted an intro and in two threads a couple of days ago. Forum says I need to be approved. Nothing yet - did I do something wrong?

Hi yes, I also started a new thread yet nothing has come up yet. If this could get approved quickly that would be very useful to me. Thanks

We do get a lot of spam, so sometimes it takes a day or two to sift through everything.  Your posts are now all live :)

In the end it is a small price to pay to try to keep the spammers away,another forum i use has just had a spate of it, i think the same policy would have stopped it.

Me too - posted this morning, it shouldn't take this long to get my post approved. Looking to get help fast and this manual review of new posts process is really frustrating, may need to go elsewhere. This is bogus!

I would rather see the forum without all the spam Adam filters out and have this approval process than scrapping the approvals and having to wade through spam posts. Adam is the only admin and does stellar work, even if there is sometimes a build-up of pending memberships. One single admin nearly always works better than a committee.

I believe I too am suffering from the same issue that others have reported in this thread.
I appreciate that you do have to weed out the spammers as these are a pain for everyone.
Was just wondering how long I will have to wait to view posts I have made.
Thanks and liking the forum.

That seems to have happened to me too. I  reposted my intro thinking I must have done something wrong so if that has doubled up can the moderators please delete the second one?

I may have just made a double post on the "hello" forum.  I registered and posted a few days ago, but it didn't show up, so I just made another post there.  I guess it didn't have the approval yet.  I just found this.

Hi Adam, I have already posted two posts including my Hello, more than a week ago.
Is there any inconvenience?
Regards

I submitted a couple of posts some days ago and nothing has appeared. It's quite annoying.I needed to edit one of the posts but there doesn't seem too be any way too do it.
