    After making my last couple posts I was met by "a moderator will have to approve this post" (one of which was a good while ago)... makes sense to stop spammers but does this stop after I have a certain number of posts?

    Sorry for posting in the intro forum but I didn't see one for site issues

    Yes, after you have met the minimum number of posts you won't see this message. Usually it's messages that include a link, image, etc that get flagged.

    Our moderators are really good about getting online quickly to get those messages approved. Unfortunately, about half of us are in Vegas right now so things might be a bit slower this particular week. :wink2:

    Sonya, can you tell me what the minimum number of messages is? I just got the message and my post didn't include any kind of link or image. Thanks!

    I need to find where we entered that number to be sure. ;) I think it's about 30 posts. It's not just links, but also certain "keywords" that are likely to be included in spam, etc.

    I know it's a hassle, but we do our best to get those messages approved ASAP.

    I've noticed that if there's a .com mentioned in the post it will put it into moderation.
