New posts/replies are not being posted... frustrated.

I've tried to post a total of approx 20 new threads and/or replies and they do not show up.

Is there some sort of probationary period or am I only allowed a certain number of posts per week ?

Always says "awaiting moderators approval".

Do I need to pay for a premium membership ?

Any thoughts ?

Thanks
Derek

hmm..im sorry Derek, I cant explain this.

what's odd is that many of your posts are going through..you have 15 posts on the forum at the moment, but some clearly are not.

Derek sent me a screen shot that shows one of posts "pending moderator approval"



I am not aware of any posts needing moderator approval, ever..
thats simply not a thing we have set up here..
even the spammers get to make their first posts without any approval needed, before they get banned.

We dont even have a place to go to to see posts that need approval, so we can approve them..I dont believe such a place even exists.

So something is clearly wrong with Derek's settings..
Can an admin check on it please?

thanks,
Scot

I have no idea what the issue is. In fact, his new thread posts don't even show up on the new posts link unless I go into the thread tools menu and select approve post. Before that they just show as spam. I haven't figured out a way to approve his replies in other threads as those just say spam posts on them as well.

Please direct all snow blower questions to the forums and not to me with PMs.

If you can remove my account, I can start over with a new account.

I had posted a thread in the admin help desk ticket thing linking back to here. Hopefully someone sees it soon. Not sure how active they are on Sundays.

Thanks Shryp. Let's be sure to check on it later today, and tomorrow for sure if we don't hear anything soon.

I had seen that spam post tag on the lower right hand corner of other people's posts a few times before, but thought it was something with posts someone had already moderated.
