Hi guys. Is there any reason why when I post messages that I get a blue strip saying they need to await moderation? It didn’t used to happen. Have I posted something controversial or offensive that’s set off an algorithm or something?

It could depend where you are posting (for sale etc) or if you are attaching photo’s...

@Elly Swanson , guess you refer to a post in the "view from your van" thread '
This is in the photo's section and every post needs approval my moderation , always was so....

It happens every X days, that someone posts the same question, wondering why in earth their post suddenly needs moderator approval. Thinking that perhaps they've done something wrong ;-) See here and here or here and here or here, etc.

Perhaps it's possible to display a clear message explaining this, when people post in one of these forums where a post needs to be approved. Might prevent the same question coming back.

It's simple , every single post in photo's , dealer reviews and all posts in adverts need moderation approval.
It's a clear message saying this when you post there , most things get approved within' short notice , patience is a god's gift...

Happend to me too and I guess - mods will know - it is also to prevent "to much/big" pictures here. Only know from the German Caliboard they had members using the board as a picture cloud

Thanks to you all for prompt replies (as usual). I didn't realise some need approval and always have. I did notice that they've always been approved very quickly. I must have been posting alot lately to photo ones.

Cheers all. I love these forums and appreciate how well they are moderated and how smoothly they run for members. Good to now I've not been put on the naughty step ;).

We can probably remove approvals from the photos section now , this was put in place a few years ago for some reason that I can't remember. That should leave it just on the marketplace section where we do need to keep it in place.

Don't worry Elly, you have done nothing wrong
