    Post verification and delay

    Every time I post on this forum I am given a message that the post must be verified before I will see it. There is a considerable delay between the time I post and the time I can view the post. Is this normal? Does this only happen for new members, or does everyone continue to experience this verification process and delay?

    I'm not sure, Cheryl. The same thing is happening to me, and of course, I don't like it. I've never had this happen on any other forum. I've just signed up at Absolute Write, and a new member has all the same privileges as someone who has been there for years. And that's as it should be.

    I suspect it has something to do with this:

    That's correct - New members have to go through a moderation phase prior to receiving full access. Posts should be reviewed within an hour or two during the day, but may experience delays when posted overnight.

    I see Awesome Script Writer managed to sneak through.

    Lol - I just deleted the link and then let the post go... (That thread actually started prior to the new pre-post check, but I did see it when it was posted)

    Ok, I understand now. I've looked for forum rules and didn't see any. Are there any biggies that I should know about, or can someone direct me to the rules of the forum?

    Thanks!

    Hi, Cheryl - Here's a link to the basic "Forum Rules" (also at the bottom of your screen under Posting Permissions) and here's a link to the site Terms of Service - it's a bit more detailed.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to ask!
