It's just "newbies"; once one gets over a certain post threshold the restriction is removed and one becomes a full-fledged member. This is merely to cut down on noise and commercial adverts that unscrupulous folks try to jam in that are not related to the mission of the forum -- it is in no way personal.StraightSkirt wrote:Is it just for the newbies or does everyone's post get reviewed?
So that explains why I had to approve what I thought was the same post twice and almost wound up questioning the sanity of the forum software and my own as well! Thanks for mentioning that behaviour; I need to bear it in mind going forward.For example I wrote a post, waited for approval, then edited it to remove a link and it was resubmitted for approval.
It is not forever. You have my word on that.It seems like a reasonable thing to do for the first ten or fifteen posts but will all my posts need approval forever?
We have very few rules here (check the masthead and its' embedded link if you are unsure what they are) but those that do exist are there for a reason. If in doubt, I would recommend that posters err on the side of courtesy and tolerance as the generally good nature of conversation at the Cafe is highly valued.
