| | Re: New user-Posts never appearing - review by moderator
Because of heavy spam, we had to implement some extra spam protection that scans new member posts for possible spam and holds them for review by a moderator. Your posts, unfortunately, were flagged as spam even though they were not. They have all been approved now, and you should not have the problem again.
For new members who experience this - be aware that we have quite a few moderators on, and we will probably be able to catch this within a day or two.
Access to the private members section is a different issue, and that access is granted after reaching a certain number of posts. I think 30.
So far, this is the first instance of a false positive we've had with the new spam prevention we're using, and it has caught quite a few spammers already. So we'll see how it goes, and if it causes too much trouble for new members in the future, we'll look for something to replace it.
