    Any idea why every now and then my posts are not published until a moderator approves them? It has happened a couple of times in the past couple of days and it is getting a little frustrating.

    Are there things I shouldn't be posting or posting about?

    Nothing that you have done Craig, it's nothing personal I can assure you!

    Long story short, there are 2 sections of the forums which are more heavily targetted by spammers, these spam posts often outweigh the genuine posts in these sections (often by far), therefore all posts in these sections are queued for moderation as unfortunately admin cannot set the filters to just filter new users posts, so sometimes obviously genuine posts also get caught in the queue which then need to be manually moderated by mods or staff before being approved.

    I can understand it must be annoying at times but unfortunately it's something that's been here a while now and is likely to stay, at least for the foreseeable future (at least to my knowledge), unless admin can apply different filters, which I'm not sure they can I'm afraid.

    Craig its because you have been away for a while. While its being moderated they are scanning your PC for all of your personal information so they can eventually 'clone' you..........................................oh no wait......yeah what Gary said. Sorry, San Miguel 20 bottles for £10

    Because you've been away for so long you have to regain trust by paying £500 a month in to each of the moderators bank accounts, then we'll let your posts through :D
