    You violated rule this forum. You don't have to create duplicate posts and JosAh closed your first post from it. But now It is ok. Don't worry I can see your posts. Unfortunate I don't know answers on it. Just keep on wait and I think somebody give your answers.

    As part of the forum upgrade, we now have automated moderation of posts. Any post that is automatically moderated by the forum software has to be manually approved by a moderator to be visible to others.

    No, i disabled that (only ip and email check is done in registration). Now, nothing should be auto-moderated but it looks like some posts/threads are still auto-moderated. I am looking at options for a few hours but could not find the reason.

    I approved quite a lot of threads/posts by new posters today; I couldn't find email addresses, dirty words, nothing; I don't understand why the forum software decides that those particular posts need approval/moderation ...

    Me too. I just approved about half a dozen posts (and didn't approve two), and none of them had anything that looked likely to attract automatic moderation.

    Some moderator responses are ending up auto-moderated, possibly because of being a response to a moderated post. If it can be done, it would be nice if this worked the other way round: a response by a moderator would automatically approves the post responded to.

    Maybe that moder-o-matic thing had to cool down after it had been switched off; I don't see any to-be-approved posts anymore (lucky enough). Hope for the best ;-)

    I hope that too :) I cleaned the moderation queue half an hour ago. Lets see what happens tomorrow.

    I did not originate the linked thread.


    Example I created new thread then the auto-moderator block that thread. Is there any message
    that I will receive that the thread was block and cannot be seen to the forum until one of the moderator
    approved it? Also, will I able to see the thread I created eventhough it is block by auto-moderator?

    Hi mine0926

    This is a new feature and we're still looking for those answers ourselves. We're also trying to identify why the automated system marks so many innocent posts for moderation, as that shouldn't happen.

    In the meantime, with the recent induction of new moderators (including me) there's a good geographical spread and at any time of the day or night, at least one moderator is usually here. So auto-moderated posts will speedily be approved and made viewable by all.

    I'm sure you appreciate being able to read the forums without wasting time opening old threads that have been resurrected with tons of links to illegal copies of movies nobody here is interested in. It's a small price to pay if the software that prevents such spamming also introduces a small delay in the visibility of your post.

    Its ok with me. I understand that we are trying some solution to avoid spammers and bots. I remember that there are bots that register as usernames like mnop123 but they do not post anything on forum. I started this thread to know 'how to know that my post is for approval'. At least now I am aware that if ever I did not see my post it could be needed approval from moderator

    It did not work. I have disabled another feature of the anti-spam plugin.
    Lets see the result for next two days.

    Maybe this clears things up: I saw your two threads, both were flagged for auto-moderation so they were invisible to all non-moderators; I deleted one thread and approved the other one (so it was visible from that moment on) and added a reply to it.

    kind regards,
