New Topic?

Recommended Posts

I've tried starting a new topic in the Patrol Method sub-forum with no success.

 

Are the new topics getting moderator approved before posting happens?  Or do I just need to be patient?

 

What am I doing wrong?

Just to confirm, moderator approval is NOT required to start a new topic.

 

Though now that you mention it, in a certain area of the forum, maybe that wouldn't be such a bad idea...

Welcome to the forum.  Sorry you are having difficulty.  I do know there's some sort of newbie limits that weed out spammers, Maybe once you get this post through things will work out.  If not and things don't improve for you, let me know on this forum and I'll chase down a moderator to get some help.

I have been having problem posting on threads.  I came here and was able to post.  strange

Your member status says "validating" under the square that would hold a profile picture. Never seen that before, but it may have something to do with it.

I'm thinking a moderator has to approve the first posting and then the validating thingy goes away and so will the problem.

Well I was 'accepted' but here's a repeat of what I wrote back in the beginning in response to the unfriendly message the site posts to newcomers:

"Wow, I just re-read the wording that describes how new members are 'accepted' and saw this: "This is mandatory for all new members to help us stop spamming and keep the forum clean of dirt!"

....or....'old' members (a.k.a. good ole boys) need not worry.

That is more than just a little insulting to be 'scanned' by someone to find out how close to 'dirt' I am. It's the kind of welcome that smacks of 'sniffing out' undesirables like certain religions or ethnic groups. It's a pretty shabby way to 'welcome' someone."

 

So it looks like anyone who is new has to be 'annointed' by the all-seeiing-eye or something. Oh wait, I AM the all-seeing-eye...lol

Strange indeed. Actually I am surprised you were able to post anywhere, including here. The fact that you are a member of the "Validating" group suggests that you have not yet completed the registration process for this forum. Please check your email and if you have something from this forum, do whatever it says to do, and then you should be fine. Then when you make your "first" post it will be subject to "approval" by a moderator (the only "first" posts that don't get approved are spam) - or maybe it won't be, since your first post is already visible. It will be interesting to see what happens

Ok, it turns out I was correct. There was an issue which has now been fixed.

 

Mizmba: The issue that was fixed is whatever allowed you to post in this topic without having completed the registration process. Please complete that process or the system will not allow you to post anywhere in the forum.
