    Moderator Approval


    Are there specific aspects of a post which trigger the need for moderator approval? My last two posts displayed a message which said they would need to be approved and now seem to be lost. Previous posts did not require this.

    Hopefully this post will make it through. Any insight would be appreciated.

    I've had a few caught, and those were very short posts with an off-site link in them.

    Any forum would be flooded with posts from automated "bots" in a matter of hours unless dedicated software-filters and dedicated (usually, volunteer) moderators counter them. Unfortunate, but very true.

    there should be some intelligence in determining if a registered account is indeed a spam account. I can't remember when I registered if I had to do the captcha, or not...but after participating in the forum (asking questions, getting responses, being a premium member, etc...), I am obviously not a spambot, so maybe we should belong to a different group level, with more posting permissions?

    I've had about 4 in the past go to moderation...not sure what triggered it...hasn't happened in a few weeks though.

    It would seem that a minimum, posts to the Premium forum should be un-moderated. Unfortunately the whole process is a black box and not at all visible to those of us who do the actual moderation.

    Also, moderation does not delete threads. So posts are not 'lost'. It may just take some time til one of us approves them. If you post the same thing twice, because the first one is awaiting approval, we will delete the duplicate.

    I agree with tim and would add that People who have had many successful posts (100+?) should be automatically on a 'white list'

    One technique that works reasonably well for perlmonks.org is that, once you reach a certain "status," you start to see entries that are awaiting moderation. Anyone with that standing can approve any post (other than their own), and all new thread-starters go through that process before they appear on the forum for the first time.

    But of course, Perl monks are a most peculiar class of individual anyway ...

    Yeah all in a sudden all my posts require moderator approval. Would love some improvement if this doesn't incur significant efforts for the forum admins.

    it's out of our (forum mods') control actually.

    the forums rely on the akismet anti-spam service, iirc, which seems to be flagging all these false positives.

    the question then becomes: does akismet learn from its mistakes once mods approve moderated posts?
    (it doesn't appear to be doing so at the moment, imho)
