  • 20 post until unlocking "moderated modus" is too long and annoying.

    Hello,

    I think, that posting 20 Posts until the moderators let you post instantly is too annoying.

    I suggest to let a newbie post instantly after 10 Posts.

    What do you think?

    Make it also more clear and visible that a newbie could not post instantly!

    This forum is moderated. Until you havn't 20 posted your post must be accepted by a moderator.

      thx 4 the info. it would REALLY help VERY MUCH if you showed this info after a <20posts newbie sends off his new post. I didnt get info on this after posting, just the standard "post finnished, go to forum to see it".. and then of course there is none.

      Might just help to change the standard "Post done, go to forum to read" to a modified "Post has been done, but for users with <20 posts like you still are, the post will first be reviewed by an admin. After that the admin will actually put the post online, which is when you can finally see your post. This will delay the post a few hours, dont panic."

      When you are giddy after a finished registration & writing your first post and finally really wanting to see your post - and then seeing NOTHING, you first think "SHIT - all the work i put into writing this post into the HTML form is due to buggy forum SW"
      (because Forum SW even told you it MUST be online in the forum)

      cheers,

        After reading a lot of the "I can't post..." threads I was expecting this when I wrote my first post. I did notice a page that came up for about two seconds after I submitted my first post and the only words I caught were "... forum is moderated...".
        I like the <20 post rule as it keeps out the cr^p, but, I agree with the above posts that it might be made a bit clearer to us newbies at DT. Maybe add a "click to continue" button on that page that pops up about things being moderated.

        Keep up the good work!

          OK, I posted again (my third post, still <20) and noticed the screen that pops up does have a "Click to proceed" button but the redirect timer seems to be set at about 3 seconds and the page disappears before I can even read a line.
          Maybe make that redirect timer 30 seconds.

            Don't you think 20 is a bit much?

                      Hehe floogy, I moved your post because the suggestion was the same as daemonmulch's.

                        But that are my wordings and not daemonmulch's! Maybe he don't agree to this merging behaviour, because it's not his statement. And really: It's signed by floogy. Bizzare!

                          Ha ha. You're right, now that is rather odd. Maybe there's zombies out there eating away at the board's infrastructure.
