Site Improvent: New Users!

Postby Prid13 » Sun May 15, 2011 7:30 pm

Well, hello! New here, and I am really angry... and disappointed :evil:

Why does new users' posts have to be approved by a moderator? And why aren't my posts approved yet?? It's really annoying, as I want to help people, and this stupid (sorry about that, but I am really irritated) new user thing?

What about my already posted posts on the Flash Topics? When are they going to be published, if they haven't already been deleted :(?

jumping into a thread that is 3 years old and posting to it is probably why your post was marked as spam. Generally if a post your about to reply to is more than a few months old you should start a new post.
You other post i have approved.

Hey,
Im sorry for your frustration, i understand it can be quite annoying. however you should be out of that loop in no time.

The problem at large is that the amount of spam we had before was overwhelming and made the forum almost unusable, hence we took this rather aggressive measure to counter it. So far ive gotten some complaints, but not enough to make me reconsider.

I might however consider adding PM's to new users, but understand what kind of mess spambots would make if they went the on route. Ill have to think about that one.

It would be great if a new user can post. Of course we respect the limitation, but for me it would be better for new users to post something here.

A new user can post. You just need to wait a bit for approval, but you can post.
