    Default Where are my posts??

    I have attempted to post to this forum four times now (or was it five?) in the last week and a half. Every time, I get a message indicating that my post will wait for moderation before it appears on the forum. That would be no problem, if the posts ever did appear. The trouble is, none of them have. What's going on? I understand some have had to wait a couple days, but over a week seems a bit excessive...

    That's weird. Post should appear immediately w/o any moderation. Check you account settings.

    Hi, Peter.

    This post was an attempt to get the moderator's attention. Since I hadn't successfully posted before, my messages were being moderated to avoid spam. Apparently they were missed in the queue, because the issue wasn't resolved until I called Alpha. Everything's working now. Thanks!

    Thanks for the explanation, Jason. Didn't realize that they actually "moderated" since Alpha's official policy - as stated on this board, is that they don't.

    Peter,
    I think they just moderate initial posts of new forum users. To guard against spam.


    Plus we have to be careful who we let into our club. I managed to sneak in before they started to be careful.

    Jason, just kidding. Welcome to the forum.

    Well, I snuck in while I was still under age!
