Rejected posts

I made two informative posts and included links to help with my posts. Those post never showed up in the thread where I posted them, why? I don't feel compelled to share info and knowledge if my posts are going to be deleted or discraded.

You can't put links in your first few posts.

It's a spam filter, not a judgment.

I've sent off a message to admin, but is there anywhere in the rules that say what post count you need to do anything? I couldn't find anything in the Community Rules.

Not that big a deal. Better than spam.

Thanks. I didn't bother with it. I doubt the posts are recoverable.

On some forums, I agree. With the way this one is set up to register, I think it should be allowed in certain areas. Maybe not in the for sale section.

I used to moderate here and the 5 post minimum is totally not that big a deal. It DOES prevent a lot of BS.

Posts with links from folks with fewer than 10 posts get moderated. They are posted after someone checks out the links. It's a spam abatement scheme and not personal.

Just a bit taken aback after putting in the time to make the somewhat long posts and they have never shown up. This is the first forum I have seen use this technique to deter spam in years. I thought the days of restricting member's posts was over.

I admin and mod several forums. We haven't used this technique since '08.

Before the forum changed hands, I had a lot of posts here under the same username. They're all gone and I was able to re-register with the same username and email that I used way back in late 2000. This is not the first forum I've had the same thing happen. I was a mod on one when it happened.

What was the old username? I can do some digging....

The old site and server had some ongoing issues with storage and hosting I think. After the site changed hands a few years ago we converted to an new platform and there are nightly backups of the site so that nothing will be lost.

I agree that moderating new posts is a pita - but only those with links are held and spam has been on the rise. Thanks for your patience.
