    post needing approval

    Aloha I was just wondering why some areas of the forums need to have a mod ok the post and some areas do not? Is this just because I am new or will all my post in some areas, like the html & css area, always need approval? If that is the case then I will need to find a new forum for help.

    Sorry for the double post but I can not find the post edit button so that is one more thing that would be great if it was changed. Also your post counts are programmed wrong. I have 3 post in the forums (2 here and one in the general design area) but I am listed as only having one post.

    Starting to wonder...

    Posts in this forum don't count towards your post count.

    Edit: Oh and the answer your original question, it isn't the area, it is the post content. You just put the right combination of things into the post where the spam filter marks it for moderation. If your post does end up needing approval, hopefully it shouldn't take more than a few hours. I just went though the moderation queue and your post is now approved.

    How often do mods get a chance to go though and approve post? I ask because I has forced to make a double post since I can not edit the OP; I was trying to add additional information that people might need, but that was about 8 hours ago and its not been approved. I really need to get this bug found but without information people will not help.

    We don't have a set schedule for when we go through posts that need approval. You could wait 5 minutes or 5 hours (or more) sometimes for someone to get to it. Some (like yours) just plain fall through the cracks.

    As for the way I do it, I have a bookmark that shows me all the posts in the forums within the last 24 hours (http://www.codingforums.com/search.php?do=getdaily). For some reason though, the post you were asking about didn't show up on my list. Weird. In any event, it's approved now. Thanks for letting us know, and sorry for taking so long to approve it.
