    I worked a large number of back log Junior Member posts in the last 24 hours. If you were a Junior Member trying to sell things, those got deleted-that's against the rules. If it didn't pass the swear filter, yep, gone. If it was not about Civil War Reenacting, that's gone too. As are the posts in a foreign language.

    Other than that, anything else missing probably got caught in the rebuild

    Moderator, When I remember. We got Rules here!

    Did your sales post disappear? Try again. But read the rules first.

    Default Awaiting Moderation

    Hello moderators,

    I don't want to be irksome, but I've been waiting for nearly a year to be allowed full access to the forum. I would love to post and join discussions.

    All the best,

    Tom Reinacher

    Tom,

    Each time you post, your post is approved, and normally within 24 hours, unless we are all gone to an event. You've just not participated in discussions enough to kick the software over into Registered User status.

    At this point, you are limited in two areas---you can't access your profile (which means you can't use Private Messaging). And you can't use the Classified Ads.

    You can post and join discussions though. Not a problem at all there.


    Once you have enough moderator approved posts, you gain Registered User status. Then your post appears as soon as you post it. You don't have to wait for a moderator to read it. And, you'll be able to use the classifieds and the private messaging system.

    All the best,

    Sir,

    Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions. I hadn't seen my posts appearing (because of the moderation) so at first I had assumed they might not have been posted. But now that I know, I will gladly join the discussion.

    All the best,

    Tom

    Not knowing the number of new member posts the moderators read in a given day, but is there a way for new members to receive feedback from the moderator when a post is rejected? Or atleast to see the status of posts waiting for approval? I posted to three separate threads earlier this week and have yet to see them appear in the thread.

    Generally if a post is disapproved, you will receive a message from the moderators explaining why. If you receive no message, either it hasn't been moderated yet (which sometimes can be a couple of days or more if we're at an event or on the road), or it just doesn't fit into the discussion at hand

    There's nothing in que pending approval. I just checked and knew I swept the system around midnight last night.

    Now, if you tried to open a thread in the Classifieds, the system kicks it automatically. We don't see it. And the rules at the top of that forum say you can't use that area yet.

    I'll repost my comments then. I haven't tried posting in the classifieds. No the rule and agree with the rule. Thanks for the info.
