Question Do All Posts Need Approval?

If so, why?

Members have to register and prove they are human. Spammers can be banned upon discovery of spamming. So, what is there to be afraid of?

After a while we lift this restriction from new members once we know they have good intentions.

Does this inconvenience new members? Unfortunately, yes. But we'd rather lose a few over this than decrease the quality of the site for everyone.

After-the-fact banning doesn't work when there are hundreds of spam attempts a day.

Thanks for the question.

Hi Hieunt1,

I checked your signature file and I don't see one set up. Take a look at this thread:

http://www.smallbusinessbrief.com/fo...hread.php?t=56

Once you have your signature file set up, it should appear on your new posts as long as it meets the forum guidelines found here:

There are a couple of possible reasons:

1. We have a lot of automated filters and you may have triggered one. There are times these will delete good messages, or send them for moderation, but they are generally pretty accurate.

-or -

2. A moderator deleted the message because they felt it didn't add to the conversation. One example of this would be many posts that don't say much more than "I agree." That is just an example.

As members participate and provide good questions or answers the restrictions become less and less.

Thanks!

Sorry about that. I just put in a test signature and you should be able to go in and change it.

Let me know if you have further problems with it.

Have the same question since I'm new here. It's really inconvenience for new members but I think its the good way to determine who were actually willing to join the discussions in a particular forum and people who weren't.

Hi Johnny, thank you for your understanding. It is an inconvenience not to see your posts immediately when you are new, but the amount of spam that you would be bothered with otherwise would be more so.

I've set your settings so you are active with us now. We look forward to you being part of our discussions. Welcome aboard
