    Default why was newbie posting delayed?

    Was it anything I did or didn't do that caused my first posting today (@9:34) to show until 3:40? It cause me a lot of confusion an lost time, since, as a newbie didn't really know what to expect, or how to find out. If I need to change my style, please advise. I did learn a lot about the system, and its value, in the process.

    Welcome to the Alpha community.

    It wouldn't have anything to do with you being new. Posts are virtually immediately available. It could be that your browser was not refreshing its cache and therefore kept showing the same info each time. Only explanation I can come up with.

    Thanks Doug.

    I'll watch out for the browser cache thing. I'm in the process of changing over to FireFox, which is delightful.

    The question of delay was the time-stamps on the acknowledment and the posting. Not important, so I'll delete this thread soon unless more post develop.

    This is a old thread but seems closest to what I'm having right now.

    Last week, I posted my first post, which happened to be also a new thread in the forum regarding A5 V10. I then got a message saying that the forum is fully moderated and my post won't be shown until moderator approves. I assumed it was a measure to ensure that I wasn't a spammer or something like that, perfectly sensible by me.

    However, a week has elapsed, and my post hasn't turned up and I'm not really sure if I should re-post so decided to ask about the protocols...

    Can someone please clarify whether the post I've posted last week will be posted up or if it was rejected for whatever reason?

    Thanks.

    Just repost it, probably held up due to holiday. But please add your real name to your profile so we know who we are talking to.

    Banana, I don't see anything in the moderation queue from you waiting to be approved.
