Thread: Am I on probation or is this perminant?

    Am I on probation or is this perminant?

    This is the only forum that I have ever used that pre-screened posts.

    Is this temporary because I am a newbie?

    Is there some probationary period of time or number of posts required before it can be determined that I am not a troll?

    I understand why this might be necessary to filter out the jerks and keep the noise to signal ratio tolerable but is SLOW.

    Just curious, TB

    I do apologize for any inconvenience, itís normal. Posts from new users go into a moderation queue ó until they donít. I havenít, and wonít, post the various criteria that determine when that stops happening.

    OK, I understand. This is probably why there is such a low level of bickering and ad hominem nonsense here.

    Perhaps, I can't say for certain -- maybe we're just lucky. We do have a (mostly ) good group of members here who thankfully (most of the time) act like adults.

    Occasionally there's a new member who is put off by the moderation, gives me an earful, and then quits. That's usually a good sign that they aren't a good fit.
