    A question about a new thread moderation time

    Hi! May I ask you about what time it usually takes your moderators to examine a new thread before exposing it?
    Thanks in advance.

    Not long- it's up. It depends on when a moderator next logs in.

    Please remember to use full English words on the forum. Don't put "u", put "you".
    Also, there is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". Just click "Like" on any post you found helpful.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: A question about a new thread moderation time

    I have looked back through your posts to see why one went into moderation. It was because it contained a link.

    Posts from new members containing a link go into moderation automatically as a precaution against trolls and spammers. Once you have submitted a few posts, any containing links will appear automatically, without being moderated.

    As Tdol said, a moderator will normally approve moderated posts fairly quickly. It can happen that we miss one occasionally. If you have submitted a post that has not appeared after twelve hours, you can ask about this in the Support Area. This will bring it to our attention.
