    How long does it take for a moderator to verify a post?

    Hi,

    I recently started a WIP thread and had some responses with advice on how I can improve my builds. I then posted a response, which when I refreshed, but didn't appear on the thread. I then wrote the response again and noticed that there was a message along the lines of 'waiting for a moderator to verify your post'.

    I understand I am a new member and it may be moderated closer than a 100+ post member.

    What is the standard waiting period from when I post a message on my WIP thread, for it to be verified and posted for people to see?

    Many Thanks
    Matt

    basically it will take as long as it takes. their attention comes and goes like anyone else. but once you have hit ten posts they will no longer require being approved.

    it usually does not take to terribly long though. most of the time someone with the power is active. like i said they come and go.

    i PMed one of our Admins about it. he is usually on top of things so it should not be long. hang tight.

    It normally takes up until you have about 10 posts. After that, you should be fine.

    Same question from me. I've posted the same thing twice in a thread and even days after neither have been approved. Feels like i'm being purposely ignored since i've never had this problem before?

    @GMLover: I assure you that you're not being ignored. It's my fault for not seeing that your posts were "Moderated" and needed approval. I see the posts as though they are regular posts, so unless I happen to see the added note, I think they are ok. Please, if you have a post that needs approval, don't feel that you have to wait for one of us to see it. Please PM myself or another Mod with it's location, and we will take care of it.

    Nope that's it. But I had one other posted that was accepted 2-3 days later and by that time the thread was 3 pages longer so people didn't notice my post

    I have to admit when I first started posting here the initial 10 posts were annoying as hell. I can't fault the staff for not being online 24/7, but I had some posts take days to be accepted. Surely the moderator effort that goes into approving all the new members posts is more than the effort in dealing with occasional spam occurrences?

    The thing is. None of us (Asterisk, Squee, and myself) really have the time to search all the new threads/posts for new posts that need to be approved. So unless you guys tell us via a PM. Chances are, we're not going to see it unless we run across it. So PM one of us, include a link to the thread in question. And we can help you a lot faster than doing a wild post hunt.

    Wow, ok I just assumed it left a message with you automatically, or you had some kind of menu to check that stuff.

    Oh no. We only get alerted if someone reports a thread or post to us for violation of forum rules.

    While we don't get notifications, there IS a way to search for unverified posts, which I've gotten into the habit of doing or twice a day.
