the post can immediately appear only after the administrator manually approves it? yesterday i had a few posts in forum but it tells me that the post will appear after moderated. but with so many posts one day, how can an administrator quickly view and moderate so many posts? i also suggest to set a number of post when reached, the post will be display without being moderated

It is not all posts and there are several moderators. Posts are reviewed regularly throughout each day for those that are filtered to be moderated. This includes new members and other criteria such as words or links in the post.

That is the case. It is for "new" members.

If you are having difficulty with your posts getting approved then typically it is because of one of the following reasons (1) links included within the post (2) low quality post(s) that doesn't add substantial value.

If you are contributing substantial value AND are not dropping links then feel free to touch base with me if you have any problems getting started.

A bunch of me too posts don't count as contributing value, btw

Default Member Status

I noticed my member status has changed recently from Member to Senior Member and now it's now VIP Contributor. With a little investigating, I've concluded that the reason for this is due to reaching a specific number of posts.

Can a moderator change a members status manually upon request? In my case, I would prefer to revert to being a Member. My reason is because I always feel the need to earn everything. I like to justify my existence and postions by acheiving specific goals. This criteria aren't included in my goals.

My perception of a Senior Member is someone who's dedicated a certain amount of time and effort with effective results in helping other members. I don't view myself as a Senior Member yet, much less a VIP Contributor. I don't want other members viewing me any different from how I view myself.

I'm not trying to suggest changing any existing standards being used. I simply would like to use my own standards for myself. Is that to much to ask? I have no idea how much of an inconvenience this would be, I understand if it's not a reasonable request.

In summary, I'm still too new to the forum in my honest opinion.


Thanks,

Dan

Hm, never tried. So I did try with your profile. At first I tried to change it to anything I wanted, for example [One of the good guys]. That was submitted, but then I viewed your profile and it said Senior Member. Shortly thereafter it went back to VIP Contributor. I tried to change just back to [Member]. Again reverted back and won't stick. It's triggered strictly by the post count and something that reverts back if changed, best I can tell.

Sorry, Dan, looks as though you'll have to get used to your new status. You're a VIP in our eyes and that's all there is to that.
