    This is normal, it's not just you at all. As a countermeasure to spam, the first few posts from a newly registered member must be approved by a moderator before going public to the boards. It helps us catch spambots before they get a chance to post their garbage.

    Not sure what the specific number is, but after a certain amount of posts they will no longer need to be approved. Each new post from there will automatically be displayed publically for the forum to see.

    This is a good question, and I'm going to sticky it so other new members can be reminded: As a newly registered member, your first few posts must be approved by the staff before being displayed on the forums.

    Yeah, sorry about that fellas. They're working on the software, so lately the layout has been so glitchy that moderators can't click on the "Moderated Posts" section. Fortunately, I found an old link in my browser history that opens up all the moderated posts, so I'm currently going back on dozens & dozens of posts from the past 10 days and am approving/deleting them as deemed fit.

    We're usually on top of these things, too. I wasn't online from 10/30-11/05 because of Hurricane Sandy (caused major power outages in New Jersey, I had no electricity for 6 consecutive days), otherwise I would've figured this out sooner.

    So yeah, new posts still get moderated. Again, sorry it took so long to approve these.

    Hi, I'm new here but I would like to know: "How does someone become a moderator?"
