All my posts need moderator approval

22 Jul 2020, 09:40

I was under the impression that only my first-ever post here would need moderator approval. However I'm on my 4th post now and my topics and replies still need approval. I see on my profile that I'm in the 'Registered Users' group...does everyone need approval now or is it just me?

Yes, there is actually a message that says your post is awaiting approval once you submit it. I have approved the posts.
Once you reach 10 posts, you no longer need approval. :+1:

I'm at 11 posts now and it still tells me that my posts need approval 🤔

Yup! It should be fine now. perhaps it's > 10 and not >= 10?
Either way, I've double-checked your account. You're good to go! :+1:

Afaik there are certain forum safety rules that require a slightly higher post threshold than 10.
But I think there is no plan to publish all the specifics (because that might defeat the purpose).

Testing 123. Thanks for checking!

EDIT: This one still needed approval. 👀

Just be patient, please.
The staff members will approve all (valid) posts as soon as they have time. (The rules are stricter now than they used to be, since the big spam attack in february/march 2019).

15 posts since starting in January, where 3 have been created over three month period and the rest yesterday?
Can't see that moderation/approval restrictions has/have blocked a more fluent conversation. Besides the fact that 'nervous' coders have the option to request ad-hoc advisory using the Discord-server.

I will confirm that there are some other special rules in place that you are triggering. your post count may eventually exceed the threshold. Not every special rule however is about the content itself. I will not be posting the details of these rules but i will say they were carefully crafted around well known instances of spam or exploit probing. Needing moderator approval is not a punishment or judgement, instead it is simply a indicator that your post requires human intelligence beyond the limited code filters in place. Most all such posts are approved in less than an hour and less than a day. If your need is so urgent there is a very active public chat with highly respected knowledgeable AHK experts in IRC and Discord
