Hi, Guys!

First off, I DID use the search function, and since I didn't exactly found the answer I was looking for, I posted in an existing thread. (Can't post links yet.)

My questions:

What is the actual mechanic of getting my posts approved by an admin?
Do the admins get a notification?
Do the admins get a list of posts that need approval?
Do they have to read the thread in question to notice that there are unapproved posts?
Do I have to sacrifice my firstborn in the name of BSatan to get into contact of an admin?
Why are some posts visible immediately, most are not?
I thought this is an open forum to post, but if it isn't (as in "you can only post unapproved with subscription") let me know.


Regards,
Ron

Welcome to Bullshido.

I am on a very short lunch break so I can't address all your questions right now. Due to a previous spammer invasion, new members must have their first 7-10 posts approved by a mod or staff member.

I went ahead and approved this one obviously.

No, we don't get any notifications, but most us check out the flag that shows up whenever there's a moderated post in a thread.

Well you're up to 6 now. Why do you need to get ahold of Admin?

Thanks for approval!

@Omega Supreme: I am now, I was on 2 (approved) posts when I created this thread.

Anyways, thanks for your help!

Regards,
Ron

I made an introductory post a couple of weeks back as well and didn't see it appear but figured it was in the moderator queue. Not a big deal since I've enjoyed reading more than posting :-)

An administrator clicks "approve post"
No
Yes
No
Probably
Once you are past a dozen posts, they will appear automatically.
It is. Hence why we need to protect against spammers. There is a lot of spam, you don't see because of this.
