Posts awaiting moderation?

New member here. I seem to have about a 25% success ratio in posting. Most of the time when I try to post, I get a message about waiting for moderator approval and the post seems to disappear into the ether, never to show up. And yet a couple of times my posts went right on through. There's no rhyme or reason for the difference that I can tell. Is there something I'm missing here?

Not that I'm aware of, but I've seen this occur with a handful of members. Let's see if the Admins can chime in.

Ironically, shortly after I posted this, one of my blocked posts appeared in my New Member Introductions thread. In duplicate. Go figure.

That's because after seeing your post here, I went to that other thread and approved the posts that were pending. But I'm not sure why they required approval in the first place.

Very odd. It shows you as a registered user under the moderator toolbox. There is a choice for new user awaiting moderator approval but that doesn't apply to you. Unfortunately I'm not an admin either so hopefully one chimes in on your issue as GeneralTso mentioned.

Hey there

The only thing that moderates posts here would be the spam settings. It looks for keywords and strings that it recognizes as a potential issue. We don't have access to the database that the spam plugin uses, but quite often on auto sites, it looks as though it catch the models that are a combination of letters and numbers, much like the CX-9 you referenced in your first post.

It's not a perfect system, but it does help limit what the community sees

Sorry for the trouble! The spam plugin only scans the first few posts, so you are beyond its reach now.

Thanks for the explanation Dayle! Is there a setting that we can enable so that moderators are alerted when a post is awaiting moderation? The ones that I've seen I just happened to stumble upon.
