Post Moderation Requirement

Postby MewDragon on Sat Aug 30, 2008 12:29 pm

I'm certain some of you folks will notice as you're posting on the forum, that your post will not appear and will require a moderator to approve it before it's actually posted.

The reason for this is to provide a second level of defense against spam bots and noobs where there first posts are essentially nonsense or pr0n. The system itself is pretty ingenious. What'll happen is that after you make 3 posts, and they're approved, you'll rank up and you'll be allowed to post normally.

So, apologies in advance if this system annoys anyone, but I think it'll be in everyone's best interests in the long run.


Plus it gives lazy mods something to do.

I can't see in any case how blocking out porn is in my best interests. =P

It stopped doing that for me after several posts... Is something wrong, or does it trust me now? :P

It makes the first three posts get checked, and after that it posts normally, even if the posts haven't been approved. :x

I dunno if it's supposed to do that, but uh, yeah.

That's correct, that's exactly what's supposed to happen.

It's to monitor spam bots who only post once or twice. So it is an effective deterrent.

Well that's good.

I haven't really had any experiences with spam bots, but I know I wouldn't like them.

Funny thing about that is that even though I'm still in the "moderation" period I can post in the spam forum (Mudkipz) just fine.

Might want to fix that, MD.

You probably were able to do that because you had hit the post limit and had moved to level 2.

No no, I made one post in the welcoming thread, I was still in the moderation period.

I'll go off and make another "test" ID to check.
