  • First Post Approval

    Hi ya'll,

    I'm just wanting to explain the "First Post Approval" element of the forum. The forum is fairley well automated. However, to help guard against SPAM, a new member's first post (on the open forum) will not appear until a moderator has screened and approved it manually. Depending on the word count, it may take a couple of manually approved posts to get the forum's automation to recognize the new member as a safe poster. First post approval can take from a few minutes to sometimes a few hours. Consequently, Visitor and Private Messaging are enabled automatically only after the first post approval requirement has been met. After that you will have full use of the forum .

        I am building a wfo and I have found great information on this sight. I have several questions regarding the use of the dome spreadsheets.

          Is there a way for us to know when our first post has been approved? Is an automated message sent to our inbox?

            No automated messaging that I am aware of. But, your posts should appear normal now. You now have full use of the forum.

                    The new upgrade to the forum appears to have automated the process. First post approval by a moderator may no longer be necessary. If this is so, we will close this thread to avoid further confusion. Alex_FB
