    Default My Posts aren't appearing: NEW MEMBERS PLEASE READ!

    When you first register, the first five posts you make will NOT appear until a site moderator approves them. The reasoning behind this is-

    1 It stops spambots and automatically generated accounts clogging the forum
    2 It allows us to make sure that new members will make a sensible and valuable contribution

    - this makes the site much more user friendly for members!

    As soon as a mod can check them, which will of course vary at times.

    The moderators seriously need to help out the new members with getting there first 5 or so posts up more. Surely is doesn't take that long to check them out, unless im missing something?

    It's very off putting for new comers!

    There has been a few post put up asking to buy and trying to sell items from new users, these wil be deleted and will not count towards your post count. To buy and sell on this forum you will need to have made 50 sensible posts.

    They are checked every day, there might be some times such as nights and occasionally over the weekend that they might not be seen, the longest anyone will have to wait is 24 hours but we do try our best to keep on top of this. It isn't a lot to ask to wait a while considering the amount of physical posts made by spammers that can get on here and give every one dodgy links they can click onto with malicious results if you do. These spammers get a life ban, after a while they stop trying to get onto our forum and go elsewhere.

    I have made quite a few posts and according to the advance search option on my user name nothing has been posted, what am I doing wrong that results in the Mods not allowing any of my posts on the forum.

    Thanks for some feedback on why I am being blocked from posting.

    Please bear in mind Mods are only part time volunteers and may not immediately see your posts - until they approve them, they won't show to anyone not a mod. However, your post count says 7 now, so allshould be fine.

    I have read this thread from top to bottom several times and have to say i'm still confused,does each individual post get read by a mod and if approved,then displayed or do you have to wait until you have accrued 5 displayable posts before any are displayed? if the former i would ask why the post i made nearly 2 weeks ago is still conspicuous by it's absence?

    Very simple - until you have a post count of 5, your posts will stay invisible until approved by a mod. As soon as they are approved, they appear. Once your post count is 5 or more, they appear as soon as posted.

    We do miss the odd one, apologies for that.
