Moderated posts for new members

I can't find any mention in the rules or FAQs that posts for new members are moderated although I suspect that's the case on this forum as it's a fairly standard practice.

I was wondering how long moderation usually takes. I posted a reply last weekend to a thread I started (https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f8/r...binets-215401/) and then posted it again yesterday (around 1pm PST) but it hasn't appeared.

Is there a problem with my post or the site? Or does moderation usually take a while?

Of course, this thread and post may not appear as it may need to be moderated too.

Thanks.

Shimon - I went through the thread you mentioned and I do not see
where your posts were moderated or deleted. I have no idea why
your posts did not stick.
after the very first post of a member, any additional posts do not fall into
the moderated status - it goes directly to the forum and stays there unless
there was an issue of advertisement or spam of some kind, which I doubt
very seriously pertains to your thread. moderated or deleted posts fall into
a trash bin that Admin keeps forever. nothing is ever discarded.
if you experience any issues in the future, please bring it to our attention right away.

Thanks, John.

I'll try for a third time and let you know if the problem persists.

I just checked, it is still there. If you hit "New Posts" and no one has posted on the thread it will not show up. You will have to go to "Forums" and look in "Finishing" then find your thread and click on it.

The problem was not that I couldn't find the thread...it was that my new posts to the thread were not showing up. I just posted a new post to the thread (third time) and it worked this time. Didn't do anything different. But doesn't matter now because it appears to be working. Thanks.

I saw the first two moderated posts today and just deleted them since your post from today was the same and it 'took'. Often a new member's posts go into moderation when they attach a photo or post a link. But I think when you get over a certain number of posts, 15-20ish maybe?, then the posts go as planned. If there's an algorithm I haven't seen or heard anything about it. Just keep posting and it will begin working just fine.

The scanning threshold for the anti-spam measure that puts posts into holding is 5 posts. After that, you are fully in the clear

Hi,


New member (since late Monday evening) here. Posted late Monday evening. It was moderated. Appeared the next morning, with replies. Here's where it gets odd. I replied to the replies and my reply was posted immediately. Cool! Then somebody else followed-up, I posted a reply and that one was moderated. It eventually appeared. Meanwhile I posted comments to two other threads, sometime yesterday (Tuesday), the moderation pop-up appeared and they've yet to appear.


Not a complaint, mind you. It just seemed a bit odd that my second post flowed right through and subsequent posts went into moderation, is all.

I made a post earlier today that included some images, and received a message upon submitting that it would need to be moderated before it posted. Is there somewhere I can view the status of this post? I am wondering how I'm to know what, if any, issue there is and how to avoid moderation in the future.

Thanks,
Tim

for some unknown reason, post #8 was in moderation status
from 11-27-2019, 09:57 AM. there is no rhyme or reason why
this would have happened. I just now approved it and it looks normal.

I approved your post. Go up a few posts to see where Kevin (Admin) said the threshold is 5 posts, which you now have. Hopefully you'll now be able to post without moderation.

Hello @difalkner. I attempted a post yesterday that included a product link. I wasn't marketing the product - I was asking a question that involved the product.

That post didn't appear in the forum and still isn't there. Are posts with links moderated? I didn't see any message that it would be...

Thanks for your help!

Which post? You have 10 and I found this one that does have a working link - https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f17/...ndards-221621/

Is that the one? It's in Trim Carpentry & Built-Ins.

Oh, that's it! Maybe I overlooked it? Or maybe there was some glitch? I don't know, but glad I see it now. Thanks for your help!
