Do new accounts still need moderator approval to post?

Recommended Posts

I feel like I should just register a new account because I think something is wrong with mine.  I've been here for 6 years and I still need moderator approval for anything to be posted

Yes, new accounts need a number of approved posts before they can post without approval. In case anybody wonders why, you should see the number of unapproved spam posts by bots that gets removed before people see them ;)

I appreciate this approach a lot. Because I know how it is when you don't do this.

 

This way the forum feels very clean and tidy for us users :)

not only do you 5 approved posts but when creating the account you have to answer an anti-bot question

(which, if I understand correctly, may be in need of an update if not changed in the last 2 weeks)

Completely irrelevant question, but I don't know where to post this.

 

Does anyone know how to change my forum name? It's my email currently and I don't like that. Can't seem to find any option in the profile control panel.

 

Sorry for posting here but I made two new posts with this question, and naturally didn't get approved and I don't know what to do. 

 

Thanks.

I suggest you discuss this with Fionavar in PMs or turn directly to admins

Four posts in six years?
